Great Tangley Manor - amazing place to stay!
Great Tangley Manor was a fantastic location for our family celebration, luxurious, historic and so homely. We all felt so relaxed during our weekend and enjoyed the wonderful grounds, tennis and swimming pool all nestled in the tranquility of the Surrey Hills. The house is very well equipped and we wanted for nothing during the weekend. The rooms are full of character and the beautiful dining room was perfect for our family celebration. From the moment we enquired about the property the help and service offered by Nicho was exemplary and nothing was too much trouble for him. We will definitely be returning!

Amazing historic setting but still comfy and cosy
A great place to spend a weekend with friends! This highly historic house is well equipped, clean and warm. A gem in fact! The Pool is lovely too. Great walking straight from the door as well as a good pub within walking distance

A great escape!
We wanted somewhere near to my daughter's where we could have a surprise weekend birthday celebration. Great Tangley turned out to be perfect. Although only a short distance from Guildford it feels like another world and how we hated having to leave. Other reviewers have summed up what the place has to offer and I would say that it pretty much lacks for nothing. We are left with wonderful memories and a desire to come back one day if we can.

Memories are made of this.
Together with a small group of our closest friends we hired Great Tangley Manor for the Bank Holiday weekend to celebrate our 70th birthdays. Our stay there was everything I wished for and more in this thousand year old house in a wonderful setting. We explored the beautiful grounds, had a BBQ in the centre courtyard, and on the Sunday had a chef in to cook us a 9-course Tasting Menu and a butler to serve it & keep our glasses topped up. On the Saturday we had a few extra friends join us at The Grantley Arms for dinner in their private dining room & also had a great evening. We made the most wonderful memories & will talk about it for years. I wholeheartedly recommend Great Tangley Manor ......lovely owners & helpful manager.

Beautiful, grand residence for the perfect party
Booked for two nights for my daughter's Hen Weekend for a group of twelve hens. The house is set in magnificent grounds which are very well maintained. The manager, Nicho, gave us a tour around showing us the extensive facilities and explaining the fascinating history of the place. He had even unpacked our online shopping delivery. The kitchen has everything you need and the reception rooms are very grand. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. There are 2 bathrooms upstairs in the main house, but only 1 small shower potentially between 8 people! The annex bedrooms, in contrast, share a much more modern bathroom with a large shower. The large TV in the library is very old and needs updating as it didn't have the USB connection we needed (and had been assured was there) for some of our games. Disaster! Could also do with a decent Bluetooth sound system or at least an iPod dock! Overall a wonderful place but the technology requires some updating, along with the bathroom facilities. Would thoroughly recommend using this lovely place for special events.

A wonderful weekend we"ll never forget
We stayed for a long weekend at the beginning of February to celebrate a 50th Birthday. We were extremely excited about having the pleasure of sharing this historical family home & having the opportunity to experience life in such a beautiful place....& we weren't disappointed! The manor was very well equipped for self catering & the eleven of us felt very comfortable and at home. The pool was the perfect temperature & a super size. Unfortunately we didn't have time to play tennis or croquet. Guildford is a short drive away & there are some nice local walks. To be quite honest, we ran out of time to go exploring too far as we just enjoyed spending time together at Tangley. We had a wonderful 20's themed fancy dress murder mystery party on Saturday evening and the dark wood panelled dining room was the perfect setting for it. Thank you so much Nico for keeping shtum about the surprise family visitor from Australia! Many many thanks to the family for allowing us to share your beautiful Manor.

Greedy Owners!!!
We stayed at Great Tangley Manor for our family Christmas celebrations. We picked the venue as it was local to us and our family whom live in Surrey and wanted to join us for dinner. The house and the grounds were beautiful and well equipped for our stay. We made sure that we kept the house perfectly clean despite having young children there and cooking a huge Christmas dinner. We had such a lovely time that we planned to have a re-union every year there as a family as we are moving to Australia this year and will visit the UK for Christmas. Unfortunatly when we left the venue the greedy owners would not refund our deposit, despite us having paid allot of money to stay for two nights. Their argument was that we had invited people for dinner and therefore they should pay?They sadly looked at pictures on face book of our christmas dinner and counted the people in the picture including a 6 month old baby and held our 1000 deposit. After much back and forth the amount was reduced and finally fully refunded today. But for what? There was no reason but greed. Its such a shame as we thought the man who owned the house was ever so kind and friendly when we meet him. And its a shame that we now cannot use these facilities again and that our beautiful Christmas weekend ended in frustration. The owner can remove these comments but they will be posted on every page that shows this house online repeatedly!!!!!!!! Happy new year

Sadly this group had extra guests to stay without permission and even took our clean linen/bedding from cupboards leaving us with insufficient for our next guests. Her post and threat is the result of her being ask to pay the cleaning costs. No charge was made for the extra 6 guests overnight stay.

Beautiful, Historic and Comfortable
Graet Tangley Manor was absolutely stunning. The pictures don't quite do it justice. We didn't want to leave because it was such a joy to be in the place. In addition, having a tennis court, swimming pool and other games at hand meant there was always something to do. All with your own private pond with ducks and other birds. Nicho was a pleasure to deal with.

The most magical place!
We stayed here in August for my daughter’s wedding nearby and had the most wonderful time. What a truly beautiful setting for her to get ready in the morning, have photographs taken and then walk across the little bridge to the Rolls Royce taking her to the church – just magical! The house is well equipped, all the beds are very comfortable (including the two folding beds) and the swimming pool was lovely too (but do bring floats etc for children, as these aren’t available). A total of 11 of us stayed in the house, but we had another 25 or so join us for a BBQ in the courtyard the day after the wedding. Staying at Great Tangley made our already perfect family occasion even more memorable. I hope we will be back sometime in the future.
