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. Access to a living room and kitchen was ideal. Having breakfast in the garden was the icing on the cake - a lovely end to... More

My son booked a room for me at The Waltons so I could stay over and we could visit the lovely scenery in the surrounding area of Dorking. My room was very homely and comfortable. I had a really good night's sleep. Nice soft feather pillows added to the comfort. My bathroom was gorgeous with a roll top bath. I... More

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+

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.

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.
