Dog-friendly weekend break
Thanks for a lovely stay. The cottage was perfect for our needs; it was clean, cosy, nicely decorated, well equipped, and easy to locate/ check in. We had lovely weather, so we particularly enjoyed having the conservatory and the patio area to relax in. Our hosts were friendly and Amanda was very quick to confirm the booking and to give us the information we needed before our arrival. They were also kind enough to be flexible on check out time, since they were headed out for the day themselves. We loved meeting their dogs, and our English setter had a wonderful time running round their huge back garden. Thanks again, and we’d happily return the next time we are in the area.

Beautiful cosy cottage
I stayed at this lovely cottage for 3 weeks. The outlook from the conservatory is beautiful Surrey countryside, but you can walk to the shops in Salford, and Guildford is a short drive away. The cottage is well maintained, warm and very well equipped. The conservatory was a real bonus. The Owner and her family are welcoming and very helpful. I am hoping the cottage is not booked for my next visit to England!

Surrey Stay
Had a wonderful stay at Findon Lodge. The cottage has everything you need and more. Loved the outdoor space as well as the conservatory. The local amenities are great. Fantastic walks and easy to get to London on the train.

Beautifully presented
Beautifully presented, spacious, well equipped cottage. Easy parking at cottage, I was greeted by Amanda & her 2 lovely dogs. Shalford is a quintessential English village located close to Guildford, surrounded by common land and great for dog walks. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would happily return and recommend to others.

Ideal getaway
The cottage was beautifully presented throughout and had all the mod cons. On our arrival we were welcomed warmly by the host and their friendly retrievers. We we’re also appreciative of the jug of milk awaiting us on our arrival. The conservatory was also a standout of the cottage. We particularly enjoyed relaxing and eating meals there. In summary, we would happily stay there again, as the cottage is suitable for a short or longer getaway.

Delightful, quiet cottage with green views and a wonderful conservatory
We had a lovely short break in Amanda's Cottage in the Surrey Hills, near Guildford. Our subsequent stays in other places have made us realise just how peaceful, calm and quiet this Cottage is, with its lovely semi-rural views! The Cottage is spacious, with a large bedroom and an immaculate new bathroom upstairs, with state-of-the-art fittings. Downstairs, there is a large sitting room, a good-sized kitchen and the wonderful conservatory, which we used a lot of the time. With a dining table, it was lovely for breakfast and evening meals, and it was also comfortable for reading, with comfy lounges. The green views in every direction were just lovely! We used both the washing machine and separate dryer, and both worked well. (There is also a clothes airer for slow drying.) The Cottage was perfectly located for a range of interesting places to visit nearby, like Polesden Lacey (National Trust), the RHS Garden at Wisley, Shalford Mill, and Dapdune Wharf and the Wey Barges / Navigations. Amanda was a charming and helpful host, and all communications went smoothly. We would happily stay here again.

A peaceful break in tranquil Surrey
Had a quiet three weeks in Shalford in Surrey. Easy and enjoyable walks around the area and a perfect base for local trips and pub lunches. Thanks Amanda for your hospitality and the relaxed atmosphere of the Old Coach House. Would recommend for a calm break.

Thank you so much Marianne. It was so lovely to have you to stay and I am delighted that you found it such a relaxing break. I am glad that you both returned home safely. Best wishes and do keep in touch. We would love to host you again if you did return to the UK. Amanda P.S. The bathroom is finished and it looks amazing. I am sorry you didn't get to enjoy it but perhaps next time. Thank you for being so accommodating on your last day.
