The Space

This is our second guestroom. We have 3 guestrooms with double beds in total. Plus we also have 2 camp beds with proper mattresses on them if they are needed. If you need more than one room, please book the rooms separately.

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 and baked beans.
The breakfast room can also be used during the day, we have tea and coffee available for free. 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. So if the other guestrooms are taken, you will have to share a bathroom/toilet with the other guests.

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 Brighton in 80 minutes. Gatwick Airport is only 20 minutes away by train or 30min by car. 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 and 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 and enjoy the beautiful english countryside 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 stayed 4 nights with Lukas and had a really great time. A relaxed atmosphere beautiful scenery and only 50 minutes by train to London. Lukas was an excellent host, he really does take the extra step for his guests! Our daughter really enjoyed the space around the house and ofcourse Olaf the pig, which she was allowed to feed every morning. A sure place to revisit again!

  • We recently stayed at Westcott in Surrey at Lukas' place for 6 nights and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Lukas was the perfect host, very welcoming and friendly and cooked delicious hot breakfast for us on his Aga every morning. The location was ideal for us as we attended a family wedding nearby. Our 2-year old son especially loved feeding the pig and visiting the chickens and horses. The rooms were well appointed and suited our needs.

  • Lukas has been an absolutely fantastic host. Relaxed, friendly... and got up early every morning to make us breakfast before our mountain biking lessons!
    The house is very spacious and the setting beautiful. I was not expecting the swimming pool so that was a nice surprise. Wholeheartedly recommend. There was some talk already of us coming back again.

  • Wir hatten wunderschöne Tage bei Lukas. Das Haus ist einzigartig und die Umgebung malerisch. Unsere Kinder und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

  • Lukas war ein wundervoller Gastgeber. Die beiden Zimmer waren geschmackvoll und gemütlich mit viel Flair. Im riesigen Garten konnten wir uns nach ausgiebigen London-Erkundigungen herrlich entspannen, für die Kinder gab es viel zu entdecken und zu spielen. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder einmal.

  • Fantastic stay in a stunning house. My first experience with AirBnB and a thoroughly enjoyable.

    I would normally try and find some constructive feedback, but I've got nothing. Great place, great location, great host and bargain price!

    Will (and have) recommend to others!

About
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. :)
