Living and dining

The incredible open plan living, kitchen and dining area is the heart of the home and the perfect space to spend time together, whether you're a family or a group of friends.

Handcrafted in oak and hand painted in contrasting colours, the bespoke kitchen is equipped with everything you'll need to rustle up feasts. There's a Smeg gas double oven (with microwave and pizza plate), gas hob, AEG fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and large central island for prepping food, whilst lots of space and a larder means there's plenty of room for storing all your food.

The dining area has seating for six and there's also a beautiful Welsh dresser which the owner has made from a reclaimed oak sideboard. French windows lead out onto the deck and into the garden, so on balmy days you can bring the outside in with the sounds of the birds and maybe even the neighbouring cows and sheep accompanying you whilst you eat.

The gorgeous, light-filled sitting area has two super-comfy Loaf sofas and a leather Chesterfield armchair nestled around a crackling wood burner, meaning its oh-so-snug in cooler months. Alternatively, the French windows can be thrown open during the summer to let in the flower-scented breeze as you relax in the cooling shade - just dreamy.


There are three gorgeous bedrooms to choose from.

The master en suite bedroom is on the first floor has uninterrupted, south facing views over the Surrey Hills from the expansive deck. To the west, a Juliette balcony faces towards the North Downs and is the perfect spot for mesmerising sunsets. With a vaulted ceiling, separate dressing room, black out curtains, neutral tones throughout and a super king-sized bed, you're guaranteed a blissful nights' sleep in this spacious, peaceful room.

In addition, there is a dreamy second bedroom on the first floor with a double sized bed, blackout blinds and beautiful views.

Finally, the third bedroom on the ground floor with huge French doors open on to your own private courtyard with blissful sunset views over the fields. Wake up and enjoy the surrounding views from the super king size bed.

All the rooms come complete with luxurious linen covers, sumptuous throws, and textured cushions


The master bedroom has a beautifully designed en suite shower room with rainforest shower and stone washbasin, whilst there is also a family bathroom on the first floor with bath, shower and loo. On the ground floor next to the bedroom there's another shower room with loo. Each comes with heated rail to keep towels beautifully warm and fluffy.

Outdoor space

The south facing garden is just spectacular, and you'll not want to leave this little piece of paradise! There is a large wooden deck leading off the house, accessed through the three large French windows. Leading from the dining room, outside you'll find a fabulous bespoke wooden table and Weber gas barbecue with incredible views as you cook alfresco meals. Leading from the sitting room are two occasional chairs and a fire pit - made for watching the stars and roasting marshmallows. In addition, there's a large lawned area with raised beds with flowers and vegetables (these are maintained by the owner).


There is plenty of off road, private parking for three cars directly outside the house.

Why we’re in love with the autumn getaway

Have you noticed? The leaves are beginning to fall, and you need to put the lights on that bit earlier. It’s official – autumn is well on its way. Here’s to embracing the changing season!

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about The Coach House:

We were impressed with The Coach House. Comfortable and well laid out, and the views from the patio and the balcony made it feel like we were in a treehouse!

The perfect place for a short family getaway! Excellent location with lots of lovely dog walking spots right on your doorstep. A beautiful house set in the ideal english village.

Beautiful accommodation. Wonderfully presented, one of our favourite holidays to date.

The cottage provided us with a dream stay...everything was addressed, the host was very attentive and the location, design and attention to details were excellent. A truly memorable experience and we cannot wait to go back again!

We had a wonderful stay at the Coach House. The house has been decorated beautifully, the views surrounding the property are stunning, and the location is fantastic for exploring Shere and the Surrey Hills. A really special gem. Sarah was in contact frequently to check that we had everything we need and offered lots of recommendations for local places of interest. Thank you so much!

This is a beautiful home in a great location. It truly has one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in, the kitchen is beautiful and has everything you need to cook all the great things you buy at the Farm Shop down the road. The garden was safe for the dog and there were great walks straight from the house so no need to get in the car!

The cottage will exceed your expectations, it is thoughtfully designed with fantastic amenities. Breathtaking setting in the Surry hills - with magical pubs and villages around to discover. The host could not have been more lovely, friendly and helpful. We cooked most nights and the kitchen is well stocked and a pleasure to cook in. Great space and great part of England

A lovely weekend retreat with beautiful walks and excellent places to eat just a short walk away. Sarah was so helpful and made our stay so stress free.

Simply amazing, Amazing house, amazing host perfect!

Stunning house in a wonderful location. We live in North London and only 90 mins from this venue, so at first thought it slightly odd to spend a week here on holiday. We were instantly persuaded otherwise. The Surrey Hills offered stunning walks, picture postcard villages and lovely food. We went for a bike ride, visited Brighton and Guildford and Polesden Lacey. Loved it and will definitely return. The Coach House is beautiful and we felt very spoilt. The garden is so peaceful and the bedrooms are very luxurious. The owner, Sarah sent us additional suggestions of what to do and couldn’t have been more helpful.

We had a fabulous family stay at The Coach House - it's a beautifully thought out and stylish house right on the edge of woodland and Shere village. Sarah was a fantastic host and provided us with great recommendations for walks, restaurants and more!! We all loved it and hope to return one day.
