About Yew Tree Barn

A peaceful hideaway for two, on the Polesden Lacey Estate.

Yew Tree Barn is a restored, larch-clad barn tucked up a lane by Yew Tree Farm, with a contemporary interior and lovely views.  

On the ground floor you’ll find the master bedroom with the shower room across the hall. Double sinks are set in a large piece of yew, salvaged from the estate when an enormous tree was lost in a storm. A steep staircase leads up to an open-plan space with a dining kitchen and sitting area. There’s a wood burner up here and views across the estate. 

A door from the kitchen leads down steep stairs into the small, enclosed garden, with a lawn and small dining patio.  

There’s lots to discover on the Polesden Lacey Estate, with walks, bridleways and waymarked trails through woodland and over rolling hills. You’ll have free entry to the mansion and garden, and there’s also a shop and a café. The estate offers a diverse range of places for wildlife to live and is home to many species of bat. You’ll see a bat box on the back wall of the barn and there are more in the trees. Ranmore Common, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, is close by and home to an abundance of birdlife, including buzzards and hobbies. 

The nearest village, Great Bookham, is a couple of miles away.

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 (stated on the cottage's webpage). 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.
