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.

The cottage's layout

Ground floor
hall, dining room open to kitchen, utility room, bathroom and sitting room with open fire.
First floor
landing with fine views over the Common, three bedrooms (1 double with 5' bed, 1 twin, 1 single), lavatory.

You could think it may be densely populated and just home to the bustling metropolis of London, but don't underestimate the South East's capacity for hidden charms, secluded landscapes and shady nooks to catch your breath. There's lots to explore from the hazy meadows and pastoral valleys of the South Downs, the dazzling White Cliffs of Dover and the glorious gardens at Sissinghurst and Polesden Lacey.

    Love at first sight!

    For me Frensham Cottage is love at first sight. Yes there is some road noise but otherwise Outstanding location. Cottage and garden are in need of (some) TLC If not this picture postcard cottage and garden will suffer which is to regret. Outstanding location The Common and Little Pond just at our door step

    Home from home!

    This Cottage was absolutely gorgeous and far exceeding our expectations..It had obviously been very recently redecorated and refurnished and was stunning and looked SO much nicer than in the brochure and on the website.It was completely perfect and a definite fave and we SO want to book another holiday there...Just didn't want to come home! It was a real "home from home" above ..SO clean and cosy and warm and so peaceful and well equipped ..I would truly recommend it to all my friends and family.Fabulous location the woods yet less than 1 hour from London....1 of our best holidays ever....only1 downside...the tumble drier was out of order.Thank you for fantastic memorable holiday.

    Thank you for this perfect cottage

    Thank you for this perfect cottage, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful area full of walks and sightseeing. We visited Petworth Castle, Bodiam, Clandon Park and Polesden Lacey. We went one day to London to see (again) the British Museum, Hamley's, Harrods... and lots of Starbucks throughout the week. We loved the NT tearooms!
