This country retreat in the Surrey Hills near Dorking was the home of Edwardian hostess Mrs Greville, who entertained royalty and celebrities of the time.  Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and George (later George VI) spent part of their 5-week honeymoon there in 1923.

The gardens offer something for every season, including climbing roses at their best in June, a herbaceous border that are currently being restored to pre-war glories.
