Hurtwood Hotel, Peaslake, Surrey
This boutique hotel is as charming as the quintessentially English village in which it lies. Each of the 13 bedrooms has been tastefully furbished to a high standard, their nature-themed cushions, tumblers and pictures on the walls providing a cosy home-from-home feel. It's a great base for exploring the Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and watching the comings and goings of this picturesque sleepy village, often frequented by groups of cyclists and the horse riders particularly at weekends. There's no restaurant as such, although a splendid cooked breakfast is served, and the adjoining Hurtwood Inn, a separate business, serves top-notch Italian cuisine and innovative dishes courtesy of head chef Silvano Mazzoli.
A walk from the doorstep through peaceful woodland takes us to pretty houses with vintage cars in the driveway.
Denbies Wine Estate is a 20-minute drive away while the beautiful views from atop Pitch Hill are a half-hour walk from the hotel.
By car: 1 hour 20 minutes from London, 2 hours 20 minutes from Birmingham and 4 hours from Manchester. There is free parking on site.
By train: there is a direct train service to Guilford from London Waterloo which takes 40 minutes. The hotel is a 20-minute cab ride from the station. thetrainline.com
Style & Character
Hurtwood will suit walkers, cyclists, outdoor enthusiasts, couples, business people and visitors looking for an alternative to a big hotel. We love the quirky signs such as 'please do not flush sanitary products, teabags, unpaid bills, hopes and dreams or goldfish down this toilet. It will not cope'.
Service & Facilities
We love the relaxed ambience of the hotel, which is happy for guests to bring drinks back from the Hurtwood Inn next door.
- Free parking
- Free Wi-Fi
We love the variety of rooms on offer: room four has a poster bed, room one has an antique-style desk. Room eight, which has the original wooden beams of this 100-year-old former inn, is the most characterful.
Classic, Superior, Deluxe rooms
Facilities include: king size bed, ensuite bathroom, Wi-Fi, smart TV, tea and coffee-making facilities
Food & Drink
We love the fact that breakfast is always included in the room rate so there are no hidden extras. At the Hurtwood Inn next door, Tagliolini pasta (cylindrical tagliatelle) with Devon crab is well cooked, tasty and the seafood beautifully fresh.
