October 2018

+  We had a lovely stay for 3 weeks. Very good communication and responses,great host.  5/5

Septemeber 2018 - 6

+  The lodge was a great little find, very comfortable in a very quiet location. Perfect for us visiting family in the area. Claire was great at keeping in touch to make sure our check in was smooth and our stay was comfortable. 5/5

July 2018 - 5

+  A lovely lodge, feels like a home inside. Set in a very quiet area, well kept and very clean. The patio was great, plenty of space for sitting in the sun with a good book. We were also able to dine al-fresco too. Complete with everything you'll need. As a family of 5, we were able to travel light as the lodge had a washer/dryer. Big bonus was being able to arrange our groceries to be delivered to the lodge on the day of our arrival as there isn't any local grocery shops nearby. The bedrooms are lovely, however the room with the bunk beds would only be suitable for children I think as the room is fairly small. The use of the pool and gym was great too. The self-checkin/checkout was easy. Communications with Claire was quick and prompt. Would definitely recommend for a relaxing holiday!  5/5

July 2018 - 4

+  Lovely place, so quiet and a great place to relax.  5/5

July 2018 - 3

+  Excellent accommodation, not so nice residential neighbours

+  The accommodation was beautiful and loved all the attention to detail. Place was spotless and a home away from home. The kids have left sorely missing some of the board games. The host was very helpful also. Couldn't be happier with the facilities and host.

-  The place was wonderful and peaceful but unfortunately, as a holiday making family, being situated among residents was intimidating and a little disheartening. 

9.5/10

July 2018 - 2

+  Lovely peaceful location.

+  A lovely quiet location. The deck was huge and a great place to sit in the morning with your coffee and equally lovely in the evening with a glass of wine. The cabin is large and had every appliance you could ask for in the kitchen including a wine fridge. The beds were comfortable and you were given two pillows each. Two bathrooms and the ensuite has a bath which was lovely. The internet works better out on the deck than inside but due to the beautiful weather this worked fine for us.

-  This isn’t a negative about the property really. There is one road in from Guildford which is easy and most people who are not from England would feel comfortable driving. The other two roads are country lanes which at points are single lanes, this can be a little hairy if you are not used to them. We set our GPS for Albury each time to avoid the single lanes. This would not stop me from renting here again just something to consider. 9.2/10

July 2018

+  It is a nice location. As expected ideal for Surrey, but also to go to London or to Sussex. There is a small swimming pool with sauna at the reception. 5/5

May 2018

+   A fabulous lodge which was in a great location for us to explore the Downs with lovely pubs around. It was so quiet and having use of the gym and swimming pool were a bonus.   5/5

March 2018-3

+   Great, cosy cabin just 20 yards from a country footpath. Location is great for lovers of the countryside. Towels and basic consumables (toilet paper, soap) were amply provided and place was spotless on arrival. Highly recommended.  5/5

March 2018-2

+  There is everything in this property that you need for a comfortable and easy stay. The property was very clean and warm. Communications from the property management were helpful and prompt. I would be very happy to stay here again and recommend this property to others.  9.6/10

-    The outside area was very slippery.

Wonderful place. Very spacious and modern yet cosy. You don't expect it to look and feel like an apartment when you look at it from the outside. Claire was very helpful and very quick with communication. They manage their place themselves and do a brilliant job.  5/5

January 2018 -4

A great indoor space for a getaway set in lovely Surrey Hills.  9.6/10

+  wonderfully set out cabin. Great kitchen; full size fridge freezer, cooker, microwave and hob. loved that separate utility room for entering the cabin as conditions were damp/rainy outdoors, so plenty of space to take off and leave outdoor clothes and footwear. Great to have 2 bathrooms in property.

-  weather not good so could not use outdoor space though looked like a great deck area with seating to relax and for dining. Decking can be slippery when wet. Gratetful for rubber matting on steps

January 2018 -3

We loved our time in Surrey. This was a great location to stay with the family and explore the area.  5/5

January 2018 - 2

Fantastic! We loved it!  10/10

+  This was the perfect home from home for us and our friends, their child and our young baby. Equally it would be a great place for a group of friends. We loved the decor, little touches like the fact we were left dish washer tablets, dvds and a fully equipped kitchen! All the bedrooms are of a nice size and the lounge/dining area was lovely. We used the pool everyday and loved the fact it was available to us. There was also a children's park and had it been summer a lovely outside area to sit in.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez le Country Retreat. Le chalet est très bien équipé et tres propre. Parfait pour des vacances au calme. La piscine du centre de vacances est très agreable aussi. Nous recommandons le chalet.

Excellent attractive lodge with all the comforts you'd expect and more. Lovely location too. Fixtures and fittings to the highest standards. Highly recommended. 

Lovely chalet. We've been to dozens of cottages etc over the years and that was one of the best in style, comfort and furnishing.

This lodge is equipped to high spec, spacious yet cosy, set in a beautiful location in the heart of the Surrey countryside. It's also very accessible to train stations to London. I've finally found the perfect stay as a base to visit family in Surrey and from which to head up to London!

5/5 Airbnb

Lovely - 9.2

+   Lovely lodge! Really homely and cosy!

-   There was practically no WiFi at the lodge, which was a real shame. The host did try to rectify this for us but I don’t think they should advertise WiFi if there simply isn’t any.

(Service provider has now fitted a booster box in the lodge, and we have also acquired a mobile hotspot device that can be available if there are any further problems)

December 2017

Fantastic accommodation for a family of 5.  10/10

 

+ Warm, spacious and comfortable

 

-  No travel cot - only thing I would have changed, it would not stop me from returning.

November 2017

Gorgeous homely getaway  10/10

+  Lovely and quiet area not too far away from Guildford and other places. Gorgeous property, very cosy and homely.

+  Didnt want to come home and can't wait to return

-  Wifi was very poor, taken into account the area which the property is situated it is however understandable. The wifi issue was the only thing I would have changed, it would not stop me from returning.

(Service provider has been informed of wifi issue)

I would just like to say how much we enjoyed our stay at The Country Retreat.  The accommodation was superb with every possible need catered for.  The surroundings were beautiful and neighbouring residents greeting us with a friendly 'Good Morning/Afternoon'. 

October 2017

Superb - 9.2

+ The retreat was divine - comfy beds, lovely personal touches. Tea towels, washing and dishwasher tabs, cling film, bin bags - things I pack for a weekend away in a lodge or caravan. Spotlessly clean lodge, books, CD's , DVDs, and a Wine fridge as well as a huge fridge freezer. Both bathrooms were lovely, Swam twice - nice pool, sauna out of order, but not the end of the world. Setting was peaceful and beautiful in the autumn sunshine. The acorns landing on the roof just added to the out of the rat race experience. Loved it. Claire the booking manager was very efficient with information, directions etc. we went for a reunion and felt so relaxed. Many thanks.

- Leaving.

9 October 2017

+  Adoramos tudo! O espaço (dimensão, a temperatura ao entrar, a decoração, a distribuição das divisões), o conforto, o ambiente, o interior, o exterior, tudo! Sem dúvida que gostaria de lá voltar com mais tempo para poder usufruir ainda mais. Adorámos todos, até o bebé de 3 anos! :)

-  Um café/bar ou um restaurante no local seria uma mais valia.

10/10

Translation:

+  Loved it all! The space (size, temperature upon entering, decoration, layout), comfort, environment, interior, exterior, everything! No doubt I would like to go back there with more time to enjoy it even more. We loved it all, even the 3 year old! :)

-  A cafe / bar or an on-site restaurant would be a plus.

Beautiful, picturesque and comfortable accommodation. Beautiful surroundings. Quiet and relaxing.

Check out too early.  9/10

  • Beyond the Dingle-dells. 9.2/10

  • A very modern, cozy, clean holiday home with most home amenities. Plenty of local maps and information in the home. The surrounding site and neighbours' homes are also very well maintained. It's set in the ( real ) countryside, so the surroundings are very quiet and dark at night. On the first day a friendly, neighbourhood fox greeted us as our car drove into the driveway. Met the fox once again after that too. Loved driving through the dingle-dells down the lanes. Nice pool. Wish I could have had the time to take advantage of the gym and tennis court.

  • I did notice a public transport bus-stop down the lane, but where it went to, I didn't find out. You really need a car to be living or staying here though. There was nothing to dislike about the place.

Luxury Lodge - 7.1/10

  • Very comfortable lodge, had everything we needed. We especially liked the decking area and the way it was furnished.

  • The quality of the pans could have been better and it would have been good to have some casserole dishes.

MUST STAY AT THIS PROPERTY.  Fantastic family stay, spotlessly clean, very quiet, only wished we could have stayed longer.  10/10

25 June 2017

Edgeley Park is in a stunning location with well kept spacious lodges and facilities.

The accommodation was very spacious and well equipped, the surrounding area was well kept and very peaceful with only the sound of bird song heard at most times when relaxing on the outside decking loungers. Our children and ourselves enjoyed the leisure facilities including the clean and well kept pool, tennis courts and play area. We met some of the local park residents who were very friendly and helpful and recommended some of the stunning areas of the beautiful countryside to visit. The location was also ideal for visiting Thorpe Park, Chessington and other theme parks mostly within 30 to 40 minutes drive away. Having spent my childhood in the Windsor area of Surrey I was surprised to find how green and peaceful it is the Surrey hills. We will certainly endeavor to stay at Edgeley Park when visiting this area again.  10/10

We were very happy with the accommodation.

20 April 2017

I stayed at the lodge with my husband and two children for 2 nights on 9th and 10th April.   I would just like to say that we absolutely loved everything about it.  The place is well equipped, clean and has a very comfortable and cosy feel.  My children loved it and did not want to leave.   We would certainly love to visit again

10 April 2017

Excellent accommodation. Very helpful staff. Didn't want to go home. Would book again.

Just wanted to let you know that we are on our way home. We had a great time at your house. We will be happy to come back for another holiday. Thank you!

6 April 2017

Thank you so much for your positive response regarding our dog. We are all very pleased with the bungalow and its lovely interior. Everything has been thought of. Even a new sponge is beside the sink. We appreciate it very much and feel very welcomed. Thank you!
