About Emley Farmhouse

A charming country retreat on the edges of the South Downs.

Escape the city in this charming rural retreat, based on the fringes of the South Downs. The Grade II listed farmhouse and the surrounding buildings have remained largely unaltered since the 19th-century and retain a unique country charm. Remnants of its past can be found in each room from the low beamed ceilings and inglenook fireplaces to the latticed windows and even an internal well.

 

You’ll be surrounded by the Surrey Hills, with lots of countryside walks nearby. You could walk to Hindhead Commons and the Devil’s Punch Bowl or drive there in 10 minutes. This is perfect walking country with footpaths leading through shady woods or across open heathland with grazing cattle and wild ponies.

 

Other attractions nearby include Winkorth Arboretum, which is just a 15-minte drive from the cottage. Further into the South Downs, you’ll find 17th-century country house, Petworth, just a 25-minute drive away.

Notes for guests

Access: If you would like a copy of the access statement for this cottage please call the team on 0344 800 2070.

There are uneven floors throughout the cottage with some low beams. There are wooden raised steps into each room (access may be difficult if elderly or mobility impaired)

Cottage approach: The track to the cottage is uneven and unlit and is used by local farmers. Caution will need to be taken for low slung vehicles or at time of bad weather.

Parking: Please do not park in front of the house as access is required at all times by the farmer to fields beyond the house.

*WiFi: Limited Wi Fi, which is supported by BT, is available free of charge to guests to parts of the ground floor at this cottage. Please note that intermittent connection problems can sometimes occur and should not be relied upon.

Offers: Guests will benefit from a late Sunday checkout of 4pm at this cottage

Please note: Up to a maximum of 10 bags of sweet chestnut logs per stay can be ordered in advance via Contact Centre at a cost of £10 per bag. The wood supplied is sweet chestnut, cut from local National Trust coppiced woodland. Please be aware that the doors to the stoves need to be kept closed at all times as the wood has a tendency to split: the stoves work more efficiently with doors closed.

Long eared bats roost in the loft at this cottage. If a bat gets into the living room area during your stay please open a window to allow it to escape. Further information can be found in the Cottage Welcome Folder.

The Aga will be switched off from 1 May until 30 September.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
