We stayed two nights at The Walton's. Having previously lived in Dorking we didn't know this area existed. The house is in a beautiful setting with picturesque views of the countryside and gardens. Great location close to the centre of town. We chose this B&B having read the reviews and also didn't really want to stay in a hotel. The... More

It feels strange to get a review when we were away and unable to meet you, I am however thrilled you found everything to your liking. We are extremely confident Vicky will look after our guests in our absence, she is part of the extended Walton family and a true treasure. I'm so glad you enjoyed staying in Rose Hill... More

When I first wrote a review I was hesitant to say all the nice things I could as rooms do book quickly. I spend a lot of time in Dorking and this is my third year of stay at The Waltons; and my second year for very extended stays. My only "complaint" is that we don't see enough of the... More

I stayed at the Waltons for one night in November, only giving a days notice. Maggie Walton could not have been more helpful, despite having her hands full with a sick grandchild. The house was beautiful, the room large, well furnished and very clean. A very welcoming choice of cakes, fruit etc. in the dining room, made it feel like... More

We loved this house during our spontaneous visit of England. If you want you can have a typical englich breakfast or a generously Continental breakfast ( with perfect soft boiled eggs from the garden and self-made marmelades). A wonderful and stylish furnishing. A great THANK YOU to Maggie and Richard and also to KATE and ISAAC. Family B. from Hamburg,... More

We were thrilled the room was available for your family at such short notice and that you managed to get into London and enjoy the city, then escape back to the tranquil setting of Dorking. It's a shame we were away for some of your stay but it sounds as if Kate and Isaac looked after you very well. Thank... More

We loved The Waltons’ house. It was a dark winter evening, when my wife and I arrived. But as we stepped inside, it was warm and light, the walls were full of pictures I wanted to look at, a dog was wagging its tail and a friendly cat was lying stubbornly in the middle of the corridor. Upstairs, we were... More

What a beautifully written review, I had to read it through several times as it was so delightful. It's always lovely to get repeat business and especially gratifying that a different generation gets to stay as well. The cakes are still coming, this weekend we've had coffee and walnut, rock cakes and chocolate brownies - I seem to have created... More

Stayed here for one night as we were attending a party nearby. What a beautiful building and location. We were welcomed by the dog, cat and John who showed us to our basement apartment (although we had only booked a double room) pointing out the breakfast room (and home made cakes en route). The basement was comfortable and charming and... More

I am a long-staying guest due to work commitments and I can honestly say that the service and 'home from home' feel offered by Maggie and her family has been fantastic. If you time it right, breakfast includes some freshly laid eggs from the chickens in the garden! The dining room always has a wide array of homemade cake to... More

This is so beautifully written you could get a job copy writing for the Dorking Tourist Board. We've enjoyed having you to stay for the last few months, and happy to know you feel so at home. The chickens seem to have upped their egg supply so with luck there will be plenty of fresh poached eggs for you in... More

We booked our one night stay just a few days before our stay. I don't remember the price we paid but I do remember that we felt it was very reasonable for 4 adults (me, husband and older teenage children).

We originally intended to stay elsewhere but they were full so googled The Waltons.

How sweet of you to take time to leave us a review. It sounds as if you enjoyed your stay and we are only disappointed you were unaware about the private bathroom, as opposed to an en suite. There are always large fluffy towelling bathrobes for guests use so they can just throw them on for comfort and privacy. I... More
