This is the first of our 3 guest rooms. We have 3 doubles available. Plus we also have 2 camp beds with proper mattresses on them if they are needed.
London is an amazing place, you've got music, art, sightseeing, sports, theatres, restaurants - you've got it all!
BUT it can be overcrowded, loud and stressful.
If you want to see London but don't want to stay there overnight, and would rather stay in the beautiful British countryside (50 minutes by train to central London), then come and stay with us!
We are surrounded by green fields, we have a huge garden, a swimming pool, 2 mountain bikes which you can use, you'll love the area, there's plenty to do.
We serve fresh breakfast to all our guests with a choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, toast, jam or bacon, eggs & baked beans. You can use the breakfast room during the day, we have free tea and coffee available. You can use this room to relax and get warm by the aga.
The rooms at Rookery Hill Farm are a mix of classic and modern, they are clean, warm and cosy. all rooms have windows with green views and all rooms have free wireless internet connection.
We have two bathrooms, one for our guests and one for ourselves.
The train station is less than 10 minutes away by car (we will pick you up and drop you off), from which you can get to London in 50 minutes or to Brighton in 80 minutes. Gatwick Airport is only 20 minutes away. If you are coming by car we are 15 minutes away from the M25 and have plenty of parking space.
The Surrey Hills is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers endless opportunities for walks & hikes, mountain biking, as well as visits to local pubs and restaurants and picturesque local villages.
The many attractions nearby include famous country house Polesdon Lacey, the Chessington World of Adventures, Denbies Wine Estate and RHS Wisley Gardens, and a little further away are Henry VIII's palace Hampton Court and Thorpe Park.
If you need any help planning your trips, maps or advice we will gladly help out, but if you want to be left alone, then that's fine as well. We don't intrude.
So if you want to visit London, on day trips, if you want to see Brighton, but would rather stay outside of the city, then Rookery Hill Farm is the place for you.
If you are more than 2 people, you will need to book the other guest rooms too. Click on my profile photo to see other rooms.
Getting to and from the airport:
Gatwick airport: It's very easy to get to Dorking from Gatwick airport, you can get a direct train from Gatwick to Dorking Deepdene which is only 5 minutes from our house so I'll gladly pick you up from there. The journey will take 20 minutes. Alternatively you can get a taxi for about 40 pounds. If this doesn't suit your budget and you'd prefer that I pick you up and I have time, then I can pick you up for 25 pounds.
Heathrow airport: If you arrive at Heathrow airport, then you will need to go to one of the big London train stations, Waterloo or Victoria, you can get to either of these stations via tube, bus or train from Heathrow. Then from the train station you can get a direct 50 minute train to Dorking from where I can pick you up. Alternatively you can get a taxi to my house for about 60 pounds. If this doesn't suit your budget and you'd prefer that I pick you up and I have time, then I can pick you up for 35 pounds.
We live in an old house with old furniture. Please take good care of it, especially the antique furniture.
I would appreciate it if guests could take off their shoes in our house, as we have carpets that stain.
I don't smoke, so it would be great if you could smoke outside.
The door gets locked at midnight, if you want to stay out for longer then please arrange this with me.
If you need to use the washing machine, then just ask me.
Otherwise I'm very flexible and I hope that people treat my home like they would their own home.
this is the 4th time we've stayed with Lukas which shows how much we love it! Lukas is a fabulous host, so accommodating and friendly. The room is lovely and the house and grounds are so beautiful. I'm sure we'll be back again!
Lukas made me very welcome indeed. He picked me up from the station - which was kind of him. I could not have had a more pleasant stay with them. The bed was particularly comfortable - being of the soft variety! It enabled me to have some much needed sleep. The countryside round about is beautiful, and the area was so quiet.
Lovely place, lovely people. Couldn't have asked for more. Hope to be back soon.
Great host, great breakfast, great place to stay. Highly recommended. A ***** rating:).
Another fantastic stay with Lukas in the beautiful Surrey surroundings. Only wish we could have stayed for longer. Always a brilliant host with a fantastic house and delicious brekki!
I had a very nice stay at Lukas' house. Very peaceful.
Lukas has all the qualities of a good host; friendly, considerate and a genuine interest in hospitality. I would definitely stay again.
Lukas is an exceptional host. He is always about to answer any questions and serves a great breakfast. The house is beautiful and feels like a haven. This is the third time we've stayed here and we're coming again in Feb. Highly recommended

We live near Dorking in a small village called Westcott. My grandfather used to run the farm here but my father didn't take that up, we're not a working farm any more but we now keep a few chickens,pigs, ducks and geese in the summer.
Rookery Hill Farm, is a very quiet and peaceful place. As you can see on the map, we're surrounded by our own fields, woodland and lots of green. it's a really good place to relax.
At Rookery Hill Farm we have 3 Guest rooms available to book.
Come and visit us, we love having guests, it's great getting to know new people and different cultures.
The area is perfect for cycling and hiking, lots of lovely little towns in the middle of nowhere, but still just 50 min to London by train.
Just kick back relax and enjoy. Hope to see you soon. :)
