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 ticket in advance for a guided tour.

Book a visit 

Visiting Oakhurst Cottage is by guided tours only, which must be booked in advance. Tours are on Thursdays and Saturdays at 1:30pm, 2:30pm and 3:30pm. They last approximately 1 hour. Bookings can be made via the the link below or by calling 0344 249 1895. Tours run until the end of October, and from September onwards there are two tours times available to choose from.

Tours are based on volunteer availability so there is possibility that tours won’t run as scheduled. 

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.
