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”. and the North Downs way.

Beautiful property! Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds were unbelievable. No matter where you stand on the property there is an amazing view of Betchworth and Reigate. The house is under a half mile walk from the Betchworth train station which provides easy access to Reigate center (shopping, delicious pubs, grocery stores) and Gatwick Airport. Prior to the trip the owners provided a detailed description of everything we could need to know about their home, it was beyond helpful. They were also responsive to questions both before and during our stay.

My friends and I were traveling for a wedding and an majority of our time was consumed with festivities. We hope to return to have the opportunity to truly enjoy all the property and area has to offer!

Perfect for family get together

  • 5 of 5

We booked Lynchets for a family get together to celebrate our wedding. Our sons and families joined us and it was just perfect with plenty of space for all and, of course, the swimming pool was a real bonus.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great few days here after Christmas. Louise was very helpful in the run up and someone came to mend a blocked sink really quickly when we alerted the housekeeper. The bedrooms are great and the loft and upstairs bedroom are ideal for kids. The pool was the highlight - lovely and warm so got lots of use during our winter stay. The kitchen is also really well equipped for catering for a large group. We'd definitely recommend this property to others. Many thanks Louise!

Amazing Hiking right on Old Pilgrims Way, the property was once owned by the artist John Piper and his studio is still located behind the house with views for miles; The house faces southward and on a clear day you can see the ocean from the studio.
