The beautiful colours of Surrey Hills

Holiday Cottages to Rent in Surrey

Whatever the occasion we have an incredible house for you

Despite sitting just on the outskirts of London, Surrey feels like a million miles away from the capital’s hustle and bustle. This beautiful county is the most wooded in England with almost double the national average for woodlands. That’s paired with peaceful towns and chocolate box villages like Shere, Mickleham and Ripley.

Explore the Surrey Hills. Take a trip to London in less than an hour. Or just relax and admire the picturesque surroundings, wherever you turn. Whatever you want to do in this magnificent home county, kate & tom’s can make it even better with our selection of luxury cottages in Surrey to rent for holidays with family, friends or a mixture of the two.

Helping you get the most out of your stay

Visit Surrey for abundant woodlands

If serene forests are your idea of heaven, then Surrey is certainly the place for you. Woodland accounts for almost a quarter of the entire county. You can also choose from a number of national nature reserves. Head to Chobham or Thursley for huge expanses of dry heathland, which comes to life with heather and wildlife in the summer. Or opt for Ashtead, where you’ll find almost 1,000 ancient oak trees and rare insects galore.

No visit to Surrey is complete without the Surrey Hills. This 163 square mile area of natural beauty is a wonderland for walkers, runners, cyclers or even horse riders. Choose from a number of summits like Box Hill, Hog’s Back, Gibbet Hill or the highest, Leith Hill, at almost 1,000 feet above sea level. Or simply take a stroll through one of many forests, such as Chiddingfold, to let nature wash away the stresses of modern life.

Fun things to do in Surrey

Your stay at a Surrey holiday cottage will be accompanied by more than just natural beauty. There also plenty of fun things to do in Surrey to keep the whole family happy. Thorpe Park is certainly amongst them, with almost two million annual visitors putting it amongst the UK’s most-visited theme parks. After you’ve almost taken flight on Stealth – the UK’s fastest rollercoaster – why not check out the home of British aviation (and motorsport) at Brooklands Museum? Sit inside the world’s most famous aircraft (Concorde, of course), before trying your hand in the realistic Formula One simulator.

If you prefer frills to thrills, don’t miss Hampton Court Palace on the outskirts of Surrey. Built in the 16th century, the mesmerising baroque palace provides a portal back to Tudor times, complete with Henry VIII’s great hall, suitably huge kitchens and 60 acres of formal gardens. If the latter piques your interest, a visit to RHS Garden Wisley should also be on the agenda. As the flagship RHS garden, the world-famous site has more than 10,000 plants in picture-perfect surroundings.
