Sleeping 14 people in 7 bedrooms Garden Court makes a fantastic base for holidays spent exploring London and the area around the beautiful Surrey Hills AONB. This gorgeously homely house is set on a quiet leafy lane in the village of Westhumble near Dorking; in the not-so-distant past, people came here looking for a cure for their ailments when it was the local doctor's surgery; now the idea is pretty much the same - you go away feeling much better than when you came - the perfect antidote to any stress; a way of recharging those flagging batteries, a chance to refresh and revive. With plenty of space, a games room and a private indoor pool, this is a place to enjoy any time of year for family holidays and peaceful celebrations, refined hen weekends and corporate breaks.

What's great is that there is just SO much to see and do in this neck of the woods! Garden Court is a fantastic base for days out in London - you can get there by train in less than an hour. Spend a day sightseeing in the capital, see the Houses of Parliament, London Dungeons, and Madame Tussauds; have a ride on The London Eye, and catch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace.

Westhumble is one of those places where life trips along quite happily; not a lot happens but it's a nice place to be because the village is surrounded by the spectacular Surrey Hills AONB, so there's plenty of opportunity to get out and explore. Wander down the road, hop across the River Mole on the stepping stones and head into the hills; climb to the top of Box Hill and have a picnic, with the immense landscape spread out before you. Stroll up to Broadwoods Folly, follow the Deepdene Trail to see the romantic ruins of Betchworth Castle, bought for just £1 in 2011. If you prefer to see the world on wheels there are official cycle paths that run very close to the village, like the 10 mile Box Hill Route that takes in stunning scenery along its way.

Dorking is less than 3 miles away, an attractive historic market town where you can enjoy a leisurely browse and stop at one of the welcoming pubs for lunch; whilst you're there go and have a look round the Museum and Heritage Centre and see the fascinating South Street Caves. Nearby are Leatherhead, Guildford and Reigate, all equally good for a mooch about and a bite to eat with a choice of cafes, pubs and restaurants. Have a family day out at Hampton Court, take the young 'uns to Chessington World of Adventures or Bocketts Farm Park. Plant lovers will be in their element at RHS Garden Wisley, Polesden Lacey, or Claremont Landscape Garden. For something different, the kids will love the mystical farm adventure park at Hobbledown, whilst grown-ups will enjoy a tour and tasting session at Denbies Wine Estate or the Surrey Hills Brewery.  Wherever you go, whatever you do, you know you can look forward to getting back to Garden Court and putting your feet up. If you want to stay put and idle the days away in the garden and splashing in the pool, well, that's fine because this is your time, this is your holiday, your luxury togetherness.
