About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Lynchets is in a small village called Betchworth, which is about 25 miles from central London. It is set on a hill with extensive views over southern England.
There are many fantastic golf courses within easy reach, and the local town of Dorking is known for its collection of antique shops.
There are plenty of walks and hikes right from the bottom of the driveway, and Lynchets sits on the path of the original “Pilgrims Way”.
