A delightful bed-and-breakfast with everything you could want. Very traditional old style with even the stable doors! With superb breakfast's fit for a king. Superbly placed within the village for exploring the nearby delights of this quaint English countryside

Small B&B on the square in Shere - quiet, lovely well equipped room with nice extras, great breakfast with local sausages and bacon mmm, great location for walking. Food available at several local pubs we went to The White Horse and it was excellent with great service. Also tearooms, icecreams and village stores nearby. Local villages all fun to visit.

We spent some time chatting about our lifes, the village, its walks, places to eat, and of course some anecdotes about the movie "the Holiday". The bed was amazing, we slept like babies!

Nestled in the centre of Shere, Rookery Nook is the perfect getaway from busy London life. We were welcomed by owners Jill & Chris with open arms and immediately made to feel at home. The house and our room was beautifully decorated, clean and had everything we needed. Our first night we went to Kinghams Restaurant (well worth a visit)....

Our rooms were large and comfortable with enough room to spread out. The rest of the house is comfortable and inviting.
