This utterly delightful old labourer's cottage, dating back to the early 17th century, is indeed a rare find, and can rightly be described as unique, in that it remains largely unmodernised within, despite centuries of habitation. Belonging to the National Trust, the fabric of the...More

The last tenant allowed just two improvements in his old age - an inside cold tap and one 13 amp plug. The latter being a bit of a puzzle! Our fine guide took us through the many aspects of the kitchen/sitting room/living room. From the...More

Delightful old cottage which is maintained by the national trust. You have to book a guided tour as the property is not open to unscheduled visitors. Interesting talk given by the guide and an insight into the history of the local area

Wonderful cottage in the heart of the Surrey hills and village of hambeldon. The old country workers cottage is fasinating and hardly changed for over 400years. Visit when the your guide is their you won't be disappointed.

A tiny treasure tucked away in Surrey. Guide was brilliant, and the property is a wonderful antidote to the usual (equally lovely) grand National Trust properties. Absolutely loved it, highly recommended.

A minor gem. But minor only in the sense that it is tiny. The work put in by our guide was exemplary - everything was described with great care. It is almost impossible for us to appreciate what life was like for the many people...More

Another gem of the National Trust which needs to be pre-booked owing to the fact that it is apparently the second smallest property of its kind owned. The entertaining John provided an insight into the life of the previous owners of this cottage, and a...More

The Oakhurst Cottage is an anachronism because the last residents never changed it substantially, so the experience is to visit a house which could easily represent the 1700's with primary construction dating to Tudor days.
