Turn off the Hindhead to Farnham road, drive down a woodland track and into an oasis of tranquillity. Frensham Common Cottage is a long low cottage built in the early 1900s, sitting in a large rambling garden and backing onto Frensham Common. The Devil's Punch Bowl and the now peaceful (following the closure of the old A3) Hindhead Commons- both within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty- are within a five mile radius. This comfortable cottage makes an ideal base from which to explore the area on foot, setting off through your gate onto the Common or, since there are main line stations within a few minutes' drive, visitors can be in central London in under an hour.
Heating: Oil central heating included.
Garden: Enclosed garden, please note the garden has a ditch running round it so families with small children should note that supervision is recommended.
Cottage Approach: Frensham Common Cottage is situated approx 160 yards from the A287. The approach is down a woodland track that is uneven in places.
Parking: There is parking for up to three cars.
Please Note: The common between the road and cottage is heavily wooded but it is possible to hear traffic at times.
Short breaks bookable within 4 weeks of the start date all year at this cottage
The dense population of the south-east of England may not make it the obvious choice for a holiday destination, but that's to under-estimate or overlook many of its hidden charms. The Isle of Wight may well be the most obvious holiday destination in the area and the short ferry crossing really does take you to a unique holiday destination. Further east, the scenery is varied yet distinctive with the South Downs rolling down to the cliffs at Beachy Head, the sparsely wooded heathland of the Ashdown Forest and the intricate landscapes of the Weald. Closer to London are some gems which equally deserve a weekend away or longer holiday, including the majestic Thames Valley with its magnificent historic houses and beautiful varied countryside, offering some of the most beautiful scenery in Southern England. Kent, meanwhile, deserves its title of the Garden of England and the National Trust protects some of the best stretches of countryside and many fine houses and outstanding gardens. Apart from houses such as Bateman's, much-loved family home of Rudyard Kipling, the enchanting Bodiam Castle, Petworth House and Park with its sumptuous interiors and rolling parkland, Polesden Lacey on the North Downs and Chartwell, family home of Sir Winston Churchill, the Trust also owns several glorious gardens including Nymans Garden, Sheffield Park Garden and Sissinghurst Castle Garden.
