This delightful cottage, one of a pair, enjoys an extensive enclosed lawned garden, with a gentle fenced stream at the end. Boasting historic links that date back to the early 1800’s, it is a Georgian timber framed farm cottage, built for the workers on Birketts Farm. It is conveniently situated on the road into the village of Holmbury St Mary and is in the valley between popular walking areas Leith Hill and Holmbury Hill. The cottage has views across to Leith Hill and the stream at the bottom of the garden is one of the tributaries to the river Arun, which has its origin on Leith Hill. Inside, the cottage is warm and welcoming with lots of thoughtful personal touches throughout. The cosy living/dining room has a lovely woodburner in an inglenook surround, and the kitchen is well equipped with a breakfast table overlooking the front garden. The bathroom has a shower over bath and there is also a utility /boot room, ideal to put muddy boots or anoraks in after a day of walking. Upstairs there is a spacious master bedroom with views overlooking the countryside to the front and rear. The smaller twin bedroom is set up in an ‘L-shape’.

Holmbury St Mary 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 story, A Room with a View. Hurtwood Common, on Holmbury Hill, is the largest area of common land in Surrey and is the home to Mullards Space Science Laboratories, which is the largest space research group in the UK. It is perfectly situated for walking and cycling, and every year, is host to the Prudential Cycle Race in July, which comes past the front of the cottage.

There are many popular country inns and pubs in the locality, and picturesque villages and hamlets to discover nearby include Shere, with its 13th-century church, tea rooms and duck pond. Also located close to the property are Abinger Hammer, Ockley and Forest Green. Dorking is about a 15-minute drive and is a delightful town with various amenities, plus a mainline station to London. Guildford, about a 20-minute drive, has a cathedral, Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, large shopping centre and cosmopolitan eateries. In addition to the lido, indoor pool and Spectrum Leisure Centre, you can find Wild Wood Adventure Park, ideal for children of all ages.

Wonderful walks can be enjoyed along the North Downs, and the most popular walks include Newlands Corner and Box Hill. Brocketts Farm makes a fun day out for the children, and there are easy motorway links to get to Chessington World of Adventure. Also, visit Hampton Court Palace, Denbies vineyard, which is the largest in the UK, and Gomshall Mill. If a day at the races is for you, there are many racecourses to choose from, including Sandown, Lingfied Park, Kempton, Brighton and Plumpton. For a day at the beach, Worthing or Brighton are about an hour away by car. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    We spent six very happy weeks at Little Birkett Cottage. It was just perfect and far exceeded our expectations. The cottage was spotless, kitchen well equipped, beds comfortable, beautifully furnished and a lovely place to be overall. The garden was wonderful for our dogs, and with footpaths all around for long walks they were in heaven!

    We found the property was delightful. Set in a beautiful part of Surrey. We have 2 dogs and the garden was excellent for them. It was large and completely enclosed making it totally secure. Great for peace of mind. We were met by the owners upon arrival and they showed us around the property. Very pleasant people. We would certainly stay here again.
