Our Host Maggie, went out of her way to make our stay the best experience ever. Her home is just that, a home. And you are made to feel like one of the family. Little touches made the difference. Easy to find, and a good base to see the area. Room was light and spacious, with own bathroom. a+

Thank you so much for taking time to post your view of The Waltons. We were thrilled to have you here and glad you enjoyed the visit. We have been spoilt recently with lots of lovely comments, it would appear guests do enjoy coming to Rose Hill and sampling what Dorking has to offer. Once more, many thanks for your... More

I was down in Surrey for a job interview so just needed somewhere to stay for one night. My mum found The Waltons and I am so glad she did! My room was beautiful and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was all laid out for my early start (6:30am) and there was such a variety of options to choose from. Maggie and... More

I spent a few days here with a friend and we couldn't have had a better time. Had the twin room upstairs with the ensuite bath. Cozy and everything you'd need. Richard and Maggie are kind as can be. The home is a beautiful piece of Britain. Just a short (2 blocks) walk, past sheep, and you're in town, with... More

I just returned from a week's stay at the Waltons and I didn't want to leave! Maggie and Richard were wonderful hosts, it was like staying with favorite relatives. The house is so picturesque and homey at the same time. It is just a walk down the hill to the main town, yet you feel like you're in the country... More

Dorking is a wonderful market town with amazing hikes and fine pubs. Sitting just about the Rose Hill sheep pasture The Walton’s has become my home away from home. For nearly four years now I have enjoyed the privilege of being welcomed by Maggie and Richard. My adult daughter has joined me twice as have seven friends and two co-workers.... More

And a wonderful 4 years it has been, we too were seriously unimpressed with the fox but at least I only buy free range eggs so hopefully the standard of poached eggs, your preference I know, hasn't dropped too much. We are very much looking forward to Christmas this year with both your son and daughter joining us. Thank you... More

My sister and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was a great place to stay. Wonderfully warm and welcoming hosts. The cooked breakfast was perfect and there were all sorts of other things to choose from including an excellent array of cereals and homemade spreads - my favourites were the homemade peanut butter and the Damson jam!

Gracious that was quick off the mark, and thank you so much.

If only we could have provided better weather for you on Saturday but at least Sunday perked up. As always... More

Called Mrs W's (Maggie) mobile phone to book a room for our trip to the south of England. She answered against a background nice of popping champagne corks and laughter. "Sorry about the noise, I'm at a party in London", she said. I thought - think I'm going to like this woman. Anyway...the Waltons is a delightful B&B in one... More

Goodness I'm not quite sure what to say, other than we should go away more frequently as this is one of our best reviews (I will make sure Kate rerads it).

This place was fabulous in many ways! First of all the accommodations were lovely. The room cozy and the bed very comfortable. The hosts were wonderful as well. Maggie puts out a great breakfast, even one to order if you don't like what's out. In addition she makes the most yummy cakes and leaves them out for snacking. She's an... More
