A unique mélange of old and new, Guinevere is a luxury self-catering manor house set within the secluded Surrey Hills near Shamley Green. There’s an eclectic and interesting flavour to the interiors of this private home, and the vibrant personalities of the owners can be seen in everything from the books lining the library shelves to the well-stocked kitchen and bespoke artwork. Stepping inside the architectural grandeur that greets you on arrival, there’s a warm, welcoming and homely vibe to the property. If you've more than reclining in mind for your stay, you won't be at a loss for things to do; from the indoor swimming pool to hot tub, gym and tennis court. For those who dare to dream, there’s even a wishing well in the garden.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

The king-size master bedroom, with panoramic views through floor-to-ceiling windows has an en suite bathroom with Philippe Starck ‘spoon’ bath and walk-in rain shower. In the eaves of the house is the second king-size bedroom, with en suite looking through stained-glass windows. The ‘craft’ bedroom flaunts an antique king-sized bed and en suite wet room, while the king-size ‘garden’ room on the lower ground floor has a Bisazza-style en suite bathroom. Lastly, the double bedroom on the first floor has an en suite bathroom with a marble-topped bath.


Fire up those endorphins on the tennis court, stroll through the grounds or simply choose to lie by one of the lakes and watch the clouds float by overhead. Whilst children will be entertained for hours, parents and grandparents can find peace wandering through the rose gardens, picking fresh vegetables and just relishing peace and tranquillity. Explore the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that surrounds the house; there’s a variety of picturesque trails – both on foot and for cyclists – to enjoy. Drink-in the far-reaching views, smell the fragrant pine trees and find a peaceful spot amongst the wildflower meadows for a picnic en route.

For Relaxation

Do as much or as little as you like: R&R is highly encouraged at Guinevere. Rise early and practise your morning fitness rituals on the enormous lawn, with nothing to disturb but birdsong, then tuck into healthy brunches on the patio outside, washed down with fresh homemade lemonade. Afternoons are well spent perfecting your backstroke or working out in the gym. As twilight falls, what better way to end the day than with a soothing soak in the hot tub or unwinding in the steam room.


There is parking for eight cars at Guinevere. Please note there is no fencing around the two lakes, so young children should be supervised. Foodies will relish the two wide Gaggenau ovens complete with gas hob. There is also a Miele dishwasher, large washing machine, fridge, freezer and tumble dryer. The owners live within the estate.

Our Take

Property Consultant Catherine says

From this romantic 16th century farmhouse you can watch the sun setting over the lakes whilst listening to bird song; it feels as if you´re truly removed from the real world. Guinevere exudes character and charm, and is a real ´home with heart´.
