“Perfect honeymoon cottage”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Oh my, what a wonderful cottage and what a perfect location.
Everything we could have possibly wanted for our honeymoon in this lovely holiday home and the goodies on arrival were so welcome. The location was perfect, with pubs serving great food and shops within a very short walk to buy bits and pieces.

This for us was a perfect location, and the fact that we had the most perfect weather (possibly the only summer we might have in 2016) was the icing on the cake. The walks along the canal / navigation into Guildford and Godalming were so pretty and close by were several National Trust properties.

Wonderful memories, and perfect hosts. Would recommend and love to visit again.
Thank you.

(Plenty of entertainment to be had, working out how to work the oven; never did crack that one!)

Many thanks for your lovely review. I've had other guests comment about trying to work out the oven - it is certainly not intuitive. So I shall endeavour to write my own instructions and hope that they are clearer for guests than the ones that came with the instruction manual!
Do hope we see you again, perhaps for an anniversary celebration in the future. All the best.

“Comfortable and cosy cottage with tons of character.”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We are currently staying in the cottage for 12 days and after arriving from a Southern Hemisphere summer we have been snuggly warm with the central heating and the use of the open fireplace which adds to the ambience.
The cottage is as it looks in the photos and a good size for two with room to move. Great shower and comfy bed and good sofas for lying around on on a rainy day.
Great location with 2 pubs serving food and a Thai restaurant all within 5 mins walk and Guildford is only 10 mins walk if you need a shopping fix.
It was lovely to arrive on the first evening to find the cottage warm and a welcome pack with breakfast supplies and biscuits so didn't have to rush out in the morning .
Would highly recommend Dagley cottage.

“Wonderful stay in a cosy cottage”
Reviewed 21 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Me & my partner stayed at the picturesque Dagley Cottage for 2 nights & I must say it was better than we hoped for!!

Lovely pubs & restaurants within walking distance as well as a local shop, which stocks everything you could possibly want. We visited The Seahorse Pub & Thai Terrace restaurant (both serve quality food)

We also went for a walk through Chantry Woods which boasts some amazing views of the North Downs.

In addition, the cottage is bigger than the photos suggest.

All in all I would definitely say this cottage is worth a visit

My husband's family lives in the Guildford area and we visit them annually. We always have stayed in hotels, which I loathe for longer visits. This year we stayed at Dagley Cottage for 10 days and it was perfect for our needs. Separate bedroom and living space, large closet, nice bathroom with good water pressure in shower, functional kitchen to make breakfast and light dinners (we were generally out for lunch), perfect location for train transport to London and bus transport to Guildford, shop close by for groceries, safe place to park our rental car, gorgeous walking paths close by, lovely host and very responsive, easy to access wi-fi, a few good pubs within walking distance and probably more amenities that I am forgetting! We have finally found our "home" in England! Thank you, Jo.
