Decided at the very last minute to spend a few days walking and sightseeing in an area I was not familiar with - the Surrey Hills. Looked on TripAdvisor for somewhere to stay and picked The Waltons based on other peoples reports. We certainly were not disappointed! Thanks TripAdvisor.

Spent two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. My room was at the top of the house, it was peaceful, clean and comfortable. The cooked breakfast was excellent, coffee in caftiere and lots of preserves to choose from. The shower a doddle to work. The house is about five minutes from the town centre with a number of pubs...

Maggie and Richard are the perfect hosts. They are friendly, helpful and chatty without being intrusive. The house is fabulous, elegantly decorated and yet comfortable; the bedrooms are large with crisp clean sheets and. facilities are excellent. Breakfast is extensive and Maggie's cakes are great. All this and a two minute walk into the town.

Such a lovely place! Once you climb that small hill you're in for a treat! The view, the house, the welcome - everything was lovely. Quite far off the trail, but well worth the walk.

Lovely place and Maggie is a lovely host. Only had a one night stopover on a hiking trip and Maggie had no issues with two very tired and dirty hikers showing up! The room was spacious, clean, breakfast was great, and there are lots of little touches, such as homemade cakes, that make you feel very welcome.

Many thanks for your review, most certainly we have no issues welcoming tired and dirty hikers as I am quite often one myself.

I have stayed just twice, in 2007 and 2016 and felt so welcome and so spoiled each time. Maggie is a consummate host and her beautiful breakfast table, groaning with her homemade preserves and baking was simply divine. The room was so comfortable and the view of the garden enchanting.
