Interaction with guests
We live next door at The Rectory, there are only two houses at the end of this Rural track, Dora's cottage and our house. It really is a place to escape to the country. Shere Village is within a five minute drive where guests will find several gastro pubs and one of our favourite restaurants Kinghams. There is an artisan ice cream shop and lovely places to picnic. For those travellers looking for amazing walks through blue belle fields and Alpine Forest, you can do this straight from the front door of the cottage. The location also offers some of the best MTB trails in England. We are available to help when and where needed but also happy to give guests their privacy. I feel this cottage offers a romantic weekend with amazing views.

About the neighbourhood
The area is very rural and very pretty, Shere Village has a quintessential English feel and has been featured in many Hollywood such as The Holiday and Bridget Jones Diary. There are some of the best walks in England, through acres of Blue Belle woods (subject to season) and Alpine Forests. for those guests wanting MBT there are so many to discover The market town of Guildford is about ten minutes away and has a large selection of boutiques, two shopping mails and lots of restaurants, The Ivy Garden has recently opened with views across the castle grounds, I would highly recommend a visit. The William 1V pub is within walking distance of the cottage and has recently been renovated, there are also many other pubs to choose from.
Getting around
The is a rural location and it is necessary to have a car. There are so villages to visit and public transport would not be suitable here. The train to london is about ten mins away.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Gatwick : 41.0 km
Railway: West Clandon : 6.8 km
Ferry: Dover: 156.0 km
This property really only appeals to guests with a car. The airport is only 40 mins away, however, the nature of this location requires a car it would be a shame to miss out on all of the local attractions, where you can drive through the local villages and beyond.
