“Fantastic large house, plenty of garden space, great warm pool, fields to play in, highly recommend.”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This large family house is hidden away down a laneway, not far from Grayshott & Haslemere. You are greeted by electric gates and a view of the tudor style house. Set within its own large grounds (3-5 acres I think), the house has beautiful groomed lawns and mature trees as the garden. Beyond that there are 2 large fields that are tree-lined. There are no other houses in sight. The view of the gardens & property from the kitchen window and patio is stunning. We were there in August and had great weather, so it looked green and perfect, plus we had use of the very warm pool every day. The house itself has 2 sitting rooms, which is great if you have children with you (there were 6 in our group), an office with wifi, large kitchen and dining room. There are 5 bedrooms, 2 are ensuite. Plus a main family bathroom and downstairs loo. The bathrooms are absolutely stunning. The master suite has a walk through wardrobe and a bathroom/wetroom that is out of a magazine. The bath overlooks the garden and the shower is a walk in room the size of most people's bathrooms.
The owner lives across the drive in his own cottage, so is nearby for help. The groundsman George is very friendly and helpful and about if anything is needed. There is a large plasma TV in the sitting room, with Wii, dvd player and a huge speaker ipod dock. Our group was 3 families coming together to have an extended family gathering and it worked really well, being great for the children and adults.
There is huge outside table on the patio with umbrellas, and we managed to have every meal outside.
Highly recommend.

“Stunning House and Location - didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Went to Harambee for my sister’s birthday with 10 friends. It was absolutely stunning. The rooms were positively luxurious with a massive ensuite bathroom in the master suite and a beautiful bespoke finish throughout the house. The highlight was swimming in the heated pool into the evening and dinner on the patio that overlooked the extensive grounds. The outdoor space seated all of our party comfortably and was lovely to sit watching the sun go down with some cocktails and friends. Cannot recommend it highly enough for a truly relaxing and special break.

“An amazing weekend at Harambee!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We spent the last weekend of June relaxing at Harambee House with friends. It was the perfect weekend. The pool had been heated for our arrival, which was amazing as the clouds had gathered but the pool kept us warm until around 9pm. The bedrooms were spacious, and we were very well looked after by Johnny and George. The gardens were beautiful which meant we could all just sit out and relax all weekend, enjoying the countryside. A weekend to remember, and a house we will all definitely re-visit.

“Absolutely amazing country retreat”
Reviewed 19 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I stayed here for my 25th birthday, and had an absolutely amazing time. The house is incredible, the master bedroom is breathtaking, the place is very spacious and all the guests that stayed there absolutely loved it. We were lucky during my stay that on the Saturday the weather was good, so we had a barbecue outside, overlooking the lush green fields that the property owns. Johnny had very kindly warmed the pool up for us, and that was certainly the star attraction. It was literally like a giant hot tub. Nobody believed me when I text them to give them a heads up that the pool was literally steaming, and after several hours in the pool, we ended up getting out because we were so relaxed we felt like we were all going to fall asleep. There is also a huge TV with full Sky services, which was useful and ensured I didn't miss the Arsenal match, and most importantly Johnny is a lovely guy and very easy to deal with. I already have had several of my friends asking me about renting the place, and if you are looking for a large, quiet place to relax or celebrate, I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

“Stay in a clasic English Manor house for about the same as average London hotel”
Reviewed 12 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This is an amazing, memorable property. Big enough to accommodate an extended group (family or friends) it exudes the English countryside charm. A wonderful heated pool combined with amazing bathrooms (see pictures attached) and good cooking and eating arrangements make this a great base from which to explore the south-west of England. The acres of fields and grounds make it a great place for walks. The Internet is great and the house is equipped with the latest in Television technology. But why would you sit home and watch TV? :-). Johnny Roberts owner/manager of the property is truly friendly and accommodating in every way. So not matter what comes up, you know he will help. This is a real find.
