Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 3 nights
Perched right on a shimmering and glassy lake in the heart of rural Surrey, The Lakehouse at Cudworth Manor is a beautiful cottage-style waterfront house, ideal for families, friends and couples who are looking to spend time in a secluded and picturesque area of Southern England. Offering everything you need for a romantic, social or family-orientated time away, The Lakehouse at Cudworth Manor is the ultimate holiday destination.
Inside, the property benefits from the same lake-house aesthetic as the exterior, with a cosy charm and warm design. The main living space is open plan, with heat and a sense of comfort coming from the engineered wood-burning stove, just opposite the low-slung soft sofa, creating an ambient and sociable spot to relax in the colder months, watching the television. As well as the stove, there is also central heating throughout, and an on-demand hot-water heater, so you never have to wait for the shower.
The property comfortably sleeps three guests, between a double bedroom and a smaller room set up with a single bed, both of which share a single shower and lavatory room. The kitchen boasts a comprehensive range of facilities, including a four-burner hob and oven, with an extractor hood overhead, plus a microwave and Nespresso brand coffee machine. With several shops in easy walking distance, you have all of the groceries you need for a series of slap-up meals cooked in the comfort of your very own lake-house. Enjoy your meals at the table inside or sat out on the terrace on the water as the sun sets. As far as entertainment is concerned, there is full Wi-Fi throughout the property, as well as a Sky-enabled television with the full sports package.
The Lakehouse at Cudworth Manor is ideally located for a number of the key attractions in the Southeast, with Gatwick Airport and the edgy nightlife of Brighton easily accessible by car or train. That said, despite the proximity of great shopping, dining, and various outdoor and aquatic sporting activities nearby, most guests staying at the house tend to remain on and around the lake itself. With your own private wooden terrace overlooking the lake, you're free to spend your days fishing, dipping your toes in the water, or simply relaxing out of doors with your friends, family or partner. There really is nothing quite like drinking a cold beer on the terrace as you watch the sun set behind the lake after coming back from a long day hiking the Surrey countryside.
The Lake House has its very own pub "The Cudworth Arms" which is available for our guests to use exclusively during their stay. It will be stocked with a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks along with a displayed price list, we will simply ask guests to use it as an honesty bar and pay for what they consume. In addition, in the Cudworth Arms there is a large screen and projector which is linked to Sky television - movie nights or big sporting events are always popular. There is also a Fuseball table in the Cudworth Arms. The lake at The Lake House is very well stocked with fish and we invite people to fish during the fishing season, either bring your own rods (we have a tackle room for storage) or we can provide rods. For the wet walking season there will be a variety of wellington boots available to suit most sizes. There is always an umbrella or two to hand as well. For the warmer days there is plenty of shade to be found on the expansive decked area in front of The Lake House. There is a small rowing boat for use on the lake as well.
The Lake House is positioned in rural Surrey and is a very good base to drive a little further and explore the lovely beaches on the South Coast or even take a train from Gatwick Airport and head off into London.

The Lake House is the perfect place to stay for a chilled and relaxing holiday. Setting is beautiful and the accommodation is amazing. The attention to detail of the host Jo was attentive without being intrusive. She was the perfect host and provided everything that we needed for a perfect stay. We will definitely be back!
