Oak Vale Hero 1

Oak Vale The South East

A forest hideaway in stunning Surrey

Step off the world for a while in this beautiful house, hidden in a forest vale. Oak Vale is a picture of understated elegance in neutral tones and natural materials, utterly in harmony with its forest home.

Bring family or friends and once you’ve settled in, gather in the open plan living space where the woodland views are framed through sliding glass doors. The smart country kitchen is fitted with luxury appliances and preparing dinner (you are welcome to use vegetables and herbs from the garden) doesn’t mean shutting yourself away, as cooking, dining and lounging are all together in this sociable setup. A modern wood burner keeps things cosy, and on sunny days you can spill onto the terrace. Save the separate drawing room for more reflective moments or take up the action in the games and cinema room.

Outside, there’s 1.5 acres of garden, landscaped into the vale, with tiers containing a lawn for tennis, croquet or cricket, a heated swimming pool and a large dining terrace with a gas barbecue. Wherever you are, feel the breeze in the trees and soak up the sights and sounds of the forest, maybe even catching a glimpse of the two wild horses that graze the heather, or the deer who make the forest their home.

When the day is done, the bedrooms offer sanctuary with soft tones, sumptuous beds and forest views. Whether you’re in the oak-beamed master bedroom with a freestanding Lusso Stone ‘egg’ bath and rain shower in the ensuite, or one of the two ground floor rooms with doors to the terrace, peace and tranquillity are assured. A separate, self-contained annex has a double bedroom and a sofa bed.

Visit the local village for the artisan baker, independent wine merchant and a lovely deli. Picnic sorted, there are walks from the doorstep and many more within a short drive and the boot room is more than big enough for all your boots, hats and coats. There are also lots of quaint country pubs locally as well as a great choice of restaurants. Amazingly, this tranquil valley hideaway is just 50 minutes from London by train.
