A beautiful converted barn in the perfect location for exploring Surrey and Sussex plus getting to London. We were made to feel very welcome and the barn is exceptionally well equipped. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property.
I would have given more stars as everything was perfect a wonderful stay
Location good for local national trust .
Easy access to London and coast not too far.
Dorking is a nice town to visit with plenty of shops, restaurants and lesuire facilities. First visit and would definitely go back again. My family and I really enjoyed the holiday experience offered at Flint Barn it was a wonderful escape from city life.
Gorgeous and well-appointed barn in magnificent location
My family of five stayed for nine nights in Liz's beautifully converted barn. Nothing was too much trouble for Liz, and our stay was delightful and relaxing because everything was provided, including a very generous and delicious welcome pack of goodies to keep us going. It was the little things like fresh flowers, board games, plentiful tissues, quality linen, bath robes and the like, that made us really appreciate our time here. And our kids adored it! Thanks, Liz.
The Flint Barn
Exceptional attention to detail.
Impeccably maintained by gracious owners.
Exceptional Luxury retreat
Elizabeth has a keen eye for design and detail , she provides a beautiful rural luxury experience balanced with a warm feel of being home . I stayed for two weeks over the Christmas season 2017-2018 . On arrival was greeted by Elizabeth , I was given small tour of the barn , everything was set perfectly luxury magazines on coffee table , a welcome pack bacon eggs sausages all produced on site , raspberry jam etc. , even home-made cupcakes . Why did it exceed my expectations well , staying away for Christmas and spending time with my English family is special and I feel that Liz really cares , there was Christmas music playing gently on a vintage radio in the master room , which overlooks the beautiful farm and Surrey hills , and there was even a decorated Christmas tree and tasteful decorations , everything was there so i could cook Christmas dinner for my family , Liz even brought an electric carving knife especially for this occasion . The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautiful and equipped like a luxury hotel , even fluffy white bath robes slippers and a cosy hot water bottle in case . Liz lives next door but manges to have right balance of control vs intrusion . If I was going to give one piece of advice for the reviewers and to be objective , it would be that in my humble opinion it is not a place for a young family , more beautiful romantic retreat for couple or for more mature family . Make sure to check also the terms and conditions they apply as I found out not only for those who stay in the accommodation but for your visitors to , i.e. no children under 5 this could be a small barrier for occasions like Christmas or other celebrations in the house , Liz is very open and flexible but understandably wants the house kept in show house condition . I would go back with no hesitation we had a wonderful restful stay THANK YOU !
Hi Debbie. Thanks for posting such a lovely review of The Flint Barn. I am glad to hear that you found it homely. We like our guests to feel comfortable as well as being pampered and indulged. I appreciate your comments about young children. We have not aimed the property at young families so your comments are completely justified. We are of course flexible when families come to visit our guests as in your case. We are looking forward to seeing you again soon!
Wow what a wonderful place we have found. Thank you LIz and John for our stay at Flint barn.
We were overwhelmed by your hospitality the welcome pack was amazing !! Bacon sausage and eggs all from there animals freshly made cup cakes which were yummy all washed down with a beautiful glass off wine from the local vineyard.
We visited many places when staying at Flint barn, theme parks, shopping & the seaside all within 40 min drive.
You have done an amazing job here guys and we will be back without a doubt.
Thanks again Darren, Maddy , Chloe & Charlie
P.s Charlie is missing the dogs and I'm missing the homemade jam !!
