Hambledon House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 June 2014

If you know what you are letting yourself in for then this could be the trip of a lifetime...if you can find it! Slip through an unmarked gap in the hedge, past the tennis courts and Hambledon House rises up on the skyline. A rambling Edwardian (?) country house crammed full with dogs, pictures, china and antiques from across the decades and across the empire. Every corner is shabby chic and once you get used to it, and meet the wonderful hostess, it is like living in a Bronte novel. The African room looks out through panoramic bay windows across the Surrey savanna, this morning with a film crew in the garden! It is miles from anywhere so the perfect escape from modern life...if that's what you're after, the antithesis of a Holiday Inn!

My then-fiance-now-husband was in charge of booking our first night post-wedding, and earned himself huge brownie points by booking Hambledon house as it was right up our street. Very relaxed and welcoming, from the moment you step into the back door it feels like you're walking into your own house. We stayed in the African suite which was suitably outrageous. Loads of little details in the room and bathroom, a spectacular bath, shower, bed and breakfast in bed the next morning. It was a huge treat and a great start to life as a newly married couple! We're planning on heading back when we celebrate 6 months. Thanks Bron!

We had a lovely stay with our dog. Bron was very welcoming and her own dogs are a pleasure to be around. We would be happy to come again. The grounds are lovely, the breakfast was amazing and we think it's a great place to say.

Room Tip: The African room is lovely and bright and has great views of the gardens.

A charming and beautiful house set in acres of picturesque English countryside. Everyone there was very friendly and fun and Bron's cooking, using local and seasonal produce, was absolutely delicious. Although only a short stay, we had a wonderful time and would highly recommend to all!

the house is a real treasure trove of beautiful furniture and antiques- ornate but still a real homey laid back vibe, with lovely grounds and tennis court. Bedrooms are really big and luxurious.
Our highlight was the food though- chef Bron laid on an absolute feast and went to a lot of trouble for us- really friendly family and a highly enjoyable stay. Would definitely go back

Hambledon is a beautiful and fascinating house set in the perfect English countryside. It is an idyllic spot for a break from the city and the hosts are warm, extremely hospitable and very good fun. You will feel welcomed into this amazing house.
Bron makes really and truly delicious food and meals boast wonderful company.
Highly recommended!
