My family and I returned to the Waltons for our second stay January 2016 and I am so glad we did! It is absolutely wonderful. The owners are so accommodating and have thought of everything.

It is impossible to imagine a more comfortable and welcoming home, for regular or one-off stays, than Waltons. Each room is different in an individual way, Maggie's legendary cakes always there to look forward to on arrival, and ample freshly cooked breakfast form Maggie, always cheerful, starts the day wonderfully well. Staying here has transformed my life when working away... More

This is a delightful B&B, we were made to feel extremely welcome even with our inconvenient arrival time. The rooms were all very comfortable with many thoughtful touches. The breakfast was a delicious feast of the highest quality. The hosts could not have been warmer, friendlier nor more accommodating. 5* excellent.

We would like to thank Maggie for a lovely stay. We felt welcome on arrival and throughout our stay, as 3 adults and a child we were lucky enough to stay in the ground floor of the property. We had plenty of space as the ground floor is a self contained area. The area was good and homely after a... More

This is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay. So clean and quiet with a lovely breakfast and friendly host. What more could anyone want? Easily surpasses what I have come to expect from either corporate hotels or smaller band b's. When booking I forgot to check about wifi - but yes, that is available too!

This lovely B&B is about 5 minutes walk down into Dorking, but could be in the middle of the countryside. Slightly tricky to find but once found never forgotten!

What a great find! Maggie was an excellent host and the house is great. It is elegant and distinctive with a friendly welcome and reasonable price. The location is great - just off the main high street on a quiet, higher rode. We stayed in the downstairs family room which was really well equipped and spacious. Having the private kitchen...

We had a fantastic stay in early June for a family wedding in the beautiful family suite. So lovely to have such a great space as a family of four which included two teenage children.
