Description

A delightful barn offering family-sized accommodation, close to plenty of Surrey’s attractions, and within easy reach of the North Downs and Brighton.

Nestled on Leith Hill within the heart of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, these spectacular barns offer breathtaking views across the Weald to the South Downs National Park. These historic oak framed barns have been sympathetically converted, with thoughtful architectural design. With sumptuous furnishings and stunning co-ordinations using neutral colour schemes and gentle accents and accessories, these beautiful barns make the ideal retreat to relax and unwind in peaceful surroundings. Every thought has gone into providing guests with a wonderful holiday experience. Great Foxmoor Barn (ref UKC1520) has an impressive entrance hall, with high vaulted celings and a mixture of original and new beams, and feature statement lighting over the solid dining table. This huge open plan living space comfortably seats 8 guests and overlooks the superb open views, and upstairs the large galleried landing leads to 4 well presented bedrooms, one with en-suite and an impressive family bathroom. Little Foxmoor Barn (ref UKC1521) also offers a beautifully presented large open plan living/dining space with well-equipped kitchen and a contemporary range, with two generous sized bedrooms upstairs, also using the finest linens and careful styling. From either property step outside to enjoy al fresco dining and savour the amazing view with a drink or two before dinner. There is a sauna room available with relaxation/seating area and shower, on request at £20 per hour (only permitted use for guests over 18 years of age), and also a professional masseuse available by arrangement. Active guests looking for an adventure can hire electric bikes (at cost) from the owners and use them to explore the Surrey Hills and the North Downs, safety equipment will be provided.
Foxmoor Barns are located adjacent to the owner’s country home, and are surrounded by woodland and farmland with direct access onto numerous public rights of way. Leith Hill is a perfect destination for walking, mountain biking and road cycling. There are miles of open access trails across the common and National Trust land. Leith Hill Tower (National Trust), forms the highest point in south east England with panoramic views across the Weald to the South Downs and north towards London, and is only a 15-minute walk away. Leith Hill Place, a Grade I Listed National Trust property, is also a 15-minute walk. It was once a favourite visiting place of the famous naturalist, Charles Darwin, and it now attracts many visitors to its gardens. Ralph Vaughan Williams, the famous composer, resided there, and his wife was from the Wedgewood family, famous for its porcelain. There are many other historic properties nearby including Polesden Lacey, Hatchlands, Hampton Court and the Royal Botanic Gardens at Wakehurst Place. Box Hill is only a 15-20 minute drive which was the setting for the picnic in Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’, with views over Denbies wine estate where you can take a tour.
There many quintessential country villages a short distance away, including Holmbury St Mary which is considered one of the prettiest villages in Surrey, and is believed to be the basis for the fictional village of Summer Street in E.M. Forster’s novel ‘A Room with a View’. Hurtwood Common, on Holmbury Hill, is the largest area of common land in Surrey, and is the home to Mullard Space Science Laboratory, which is the largest space research group in the UK.
There are a number of local farm shops and country pubs within a short drive. For evening entertainment, there are local theatres and cinemas nearby, including The Yvonne Arnaud at Guildford. Trains from Dorking and Guildford run regularly to London and take less than an hour.
These eco-friendly barns are heated by a biomass energy system and there are solar panels providing hot water for the...

    A beautiful barn in a beautiful secluded part of Surrey we didn’t know existed. The barn is luxuriously decorated and furnished and we had a wonderful stay. Thank you.

    Lovely barn conversion, done to a really high standard with a beatiful view. Descritption is a bit misleading - it appears that you are in the middle of nowhere and going to have a quiet private break. However the barn is split into two properties and there is no privacy in the garden from the neighbours at all. It is also right on top of the owner's house. Beware that although Wi-Fi is advertised when you get there it is made clear that there is a limitation to use of the internet. The owners will charge you for 'unreasonsable' usage - but what that means is totally subjective. The pictures show a sauna but there is a charge for this too. We did feel as though we were being watched by the owners. About an hour after my husband and I turned up the owners knocked on the door to ask if we had read the terms and conditions and to make it clear we wern't allowed parties. We were judged for our young age (mid-late 20's) and my husband had to point out that I was 6 months pregnant and didn't plan on anything more strenuous than monopoly. Overall a nice property - just not the idyllic private getaway we were expecting.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback. With regards to the description of the property on the website, it does state clearly that there is another property next door and also that the owners live adjacent. In terms of the wifi, we are located in a remote rural area where there is no fixed line broadband available. We therefore have to rely on mobile 4G broadband which is not unlimited and is also shared with the holiday let next door. We therefore kindly ask that guests use the wifi for general browsing only, and unfortunately it cannot support music and video streaming. We apologise for any inconvenience this caused you, but we are limited to what service is available for the area. The sauna is a very recent addition and is not part of the general pricing of the holiday let. We therefore make a small charge to contribute towards the cost of heating and cleaning the sauna. It is made clear on the website that there is a charge, and this facility is entirely optional. We like to welcome all our guests in person, and run through how everything works heating, equipment etc, including the terms and conditions. We do this with all our guests regardless of age, and most people find this helpful and it is encouraged by the holiday company. I am glad you thought the barn was built to a high standard with a beautiful view.

    Great foxmoor barn is gorgeous. It’s been finished to a very high standard. It’s in a good location within walking distance of Leith Hill tower. I’d highly recommend it.

    Fox Barns have been thoughtfully designed and built with a high quality specification. The views are stunning and the hosts are extremely helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay and all of our guests over that period were very impressed. There is plenty to do nearby and local amenities in Dorking are only 10-15 minutes away.
