How to visit 16th century Oakhurst Cottage

The second bedroom at Oakhurst Cottage in Hambledon, Surrey

Our wonderful cottage was lived in right up to the 1980s, having survived through the centuries from the 1500s. Due to Oakhurst's age and fragility, visitors must book a guided tour.

Groups of six people

Due to the age and size of the cottage, we can only admit at most six people at a time. If possible, please make use of one of our four allocated parking bays beside the Hambledon village shop.

A window into a past world

At the end of 2014, Oakhurst went through extensive renovation work. Today the cottage is dressed to offer a glimpse into rural English life in the 19th century.
