Hatchlands is a strange place as it belongs to the National Trust but has a paying tenant who has furnished the house with his Collection, hence you can not take photos. The stunning interiors by Robert Adams, such as the ceilings and fireplaces can only be etched into your mind by staring at them intensly as neither are postcards sold... More

What a great place. The grounds alone are well worth the visit but the house just adds to it. The cafe is a bit hit and miss. We have had great sandwiches there but also bad cups of tea, but take the chance.

My daughter and I had a lovely visit to Hatchlands. The property houses a vast collection of musical instruments which were very interesting. The house is set in beautiful country surrounds in the Surrey Hills which is great for a walk in the country air. After our visit we had a Latte and cake in the coffee shop which was... More

Lovely day out, with a walk through the ages with different period pianos throughout the house. You will never see another collection like it! Lovely outdoor area, however, I would say, if you are looking for beautiful gardens and grounds, I would recommend travelling a little further to another National Trust home Polesden Lacey. The grounds have just a little... More

Ordered Tuba Mayo Jacket Potato. Lovely big potato and tasty tuna mayo. Salad had a dollop of very uninspiring coleslaw. Sparkling bottled water from the chilled section not 'chilled' however it was a very hot day. Staff excellent.

What a beautiful house! Set in beautiful parkland in the Surrey Hills (with several walks of varying distance routed), Hatchlands is a splendid, beautifully proportioned house. It's contents, however, provide the real magic - several pianos of historical importance, including instruments owned by Beethoven and Haydn; an organ, which is often played for visitors on popular days and other musical...

We were staying nearby in Ripley for the weekend and when we originally planned our trip we had intended going to Clandon. However because of the disastrous fire destroying the house we decided to give Hatchlandss a try. It was a miserable drizzly morning but we still enjoyed a walk around the grounds for nearly two hours. We were on... More

Once home to Admiral Boscawen, whose family today own Tregothnan, a very large estate near Truro. The cafe had a limited menu but it was OK for our needs. The grounds permit a decent stroll and all close to the rather more congested Guildford.
