Sleeping 14 people in 7 bedrooms Garden Court is a lovely big holiday home with a private indoor pool, tucked away on a quiet lane in the tiny village of Westhumble near Dorking. In the not so distant past, people came here looking for a cure for their illnesses when it was the local doctors surgery; now the idea is pretty much the same – you go away feeling much better then when you came – the perfect antidote to any stress; a way of recharging those flagging batteries, a chance to refresh and revive.
Westhumble is one of those places where life trips happily along; not a great deal happens, but that’s nice, and it all goes a long way to making Garden Court a fantastic base for large group holidays in Surrey. The other thing is, there is just SO much to see and do in this neck of the woods! It’s a fantastic base for days out in London for a start – you can get there by train in less than an hour! Go and discover all the sights and sounds the capital has to offer; grab a load of retail therapy on Oxford Street, wander around Carnaby Street, Camden Market and Covent Garden. See the Houses of Parliament, London Dungeons, and Madame Tussauds; have a ride on The London Eye, and don’t miss the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace.
The village is surrounded by the spectacular Surrey Hills AONB, so there’s plenty of opportunity to get out and explore. At the bottom of the village you can 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 vast landscape spread out before you. If you prefer your wheels, you’ll be glad to know that official cycle paths run very close to the village.
Just down the road is Dorking, a historic market town with an interesting Museum and Heritage Centre and South Street Caves; nearby are Leatherhead, Guildford and Reigate, all good for a mooch about and a bite to eat. Take a family trip to Hampton Court, 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, grown ups will enjoy Denbies Wine Estate and the Surrey Hills Brewery. And there’s so much more! Golf clubs, escape rooms, sight seeing tours, activites, and countless great places to eat. When you’re done you can all get back to Garden Court, put your feet up and just be together, enjoying every moment of your holiday, making memories.
