Welcome to Barnett Hill

Barnett Hill is a bold re-imagining of a country house hotel. Contemporary and design-led, the 56 rooms and suites are appointed with luxurious and chic furnishings, set across the main Mansion House, Coach House, Mews and Gardener's Cottage. Revealing itself at the end of a winding and tree lined drive, Barnett Hill is set within 26 acres of verdant grounds, with manicured gardens and terraces all around the magnificent Queen Anne-style building.

Described by the Telegraph as a 'gingerbread-brick palace', Barnett Hill was originally a private estate for the Cook family before becoming a Red Cross hospital. Today, it is a thoroughly modern country house, set in the heart of the Surrey Hills with a passion for delicious food, superb service and divine rooms. It is the ideal countryside getaway, under an hour from London and minutes from Guildford.
