The
Experience

Drive through Surrey parkland grazed by rare breed cattle to reach this bijou hideaway. The circular cottage topped with a terracotta turret is quite unlike any other B&B you’re likely to visit. It’s set into a corner of Alison’s lovely walled garden, with oval windows overlooking the park. Step through the sage green door into a country-chic bedroom with monogrammed pillows and crisp linen. Along a corridor leading to the sparkling shower room, there’s a double-fronted cupboard concealing an immaculate kitchen. Alison provides homemade bread, marmalade, bacon, tomatoes and eggs, so guests can make a delicious, DIY breakfast in bed.

Reviews

We were so impressed by the unique accommodation which could not have been more comfortable. The views are stunning and we did a long walk before breakfast into parkland. Alison looked after us beautifully and we had a delicious breakfast topped with home made bread.

Vickie, Cape town

ALison has been so friendly and helpful from beginning to end. What a beautiful and peaceful place to stay, quirky and perfectly memorable for my husband's big birthday. THe most relaxed we have been in a very long time! Thank you so very much.

Gillian, Aylesbury

The Venison House is a little oasis of chic, peaceful, loveliness in the midst of the bustling South East. The owner, Alison, is the most wonderfully warm, welcoming, diplomatic hostess who is there if you need her but keeps out of the way to allow one to enjoy the sanctuary of 'The Venison House', in peace, if that is what you would prefer. I cannot recommend this little gem, highly enough, and if you are seeking a romantic 'getaway' from the stresses and strains of daily life, then this is definitely the place for you!! Love this place and love Alison!!
