Farnham Hotels

Arguably one of Surrey’s most attractive towns, it’s easy to get lost among Farnham’s winding Georgian streets. Brimming with period red brick and timber buildings – home to pubs, restaurants and independent stores – it’s a truly pleasant place to spend a few days. Add to this an impressive castle, comprehensive museum and surrounding Surrey countryside of meadows, green pastures and woodland, and you can see why it’s such a popular spot, just a stone’s throw from the capital.

Things to see

A surprisingly arty town, Farnham’s got a vibrant crafts scene. New Ashgate Gallery exhibits fine art pieces, while plenty of quirky art cafés have popped up throughout the town. Stroll through the town centre – full of olde-worlde English charm – taking a browse through the independent – often upmarket – boutiques, stopping at a quaint tea room for some triangle sandwiches and a cup of Earl Grey, before heading up to Farnham Castle. Its vast 12th century stone keep parapets tower above the town forming a huge curved wall to the streets below. The building and its keep are one of the oldest intact castles in Surrey. Nearby 11th century St. Andrew’s Church is also worth a look, while the real ecclesiastical gem in the area’s crown is Waverley Abbey, just south of Farnham. Noted as the first Cistercian monastery in England, its crumbly remains still show traces of their former grandeur.

Hotels in Farnham

Farnham excels at traditional country style accommodation, with plenty of coaching inns, farmhouse guesthouses and period hotels offering homely amenities in a charming old English setting. If you fancy spoiling yourself, the Farnham countryside’s home to a handful of luxury 4-star stately homes turned grand hotels, the perfect place to take a languid stroll through the leafy countryside, including nearby Alice Holt Forest, stopping in a local pub for a Sunday roast, and relaxing in your room with soothing night-time bubble baths. If you’re in need of a cheap Farnham hotel, the town’s small central B&Bs offer good value for money.

Where to stay

Farnham centre’s cobbled streets, hidden gardens and period buildings are perfect if you fancy an easy stroll from your hotel room to old-style pubs, vibrant arts cafés and upmarket boutiques. Generally a peaceful place, even if you stay in the town centre you can get a good night’s sleep. Outside of Farnham, plenty of small villages offer a slower pace of life. Often accommodation comes in small guesthouses and inns, or pubs with rooms among local rural communities. Further into the countryside, it’s pure peace and seclusion where you can relax with a glass of wine on the patio.

How to get to Farnham

Within the London commuting circle, Farnham has good connections to the capital. Hop on a train at London Waterloo to arrive at Farnham Station within 1.5 hours. International visitors land at either Heathrow or Gatwick airports, both of which have direct coach services running to the town. Travelling by car from Heathrow takes approximately 40 minutes, while Gatwick is a bit further away. If arriving by train, you can grab a taxi, local bus, or walk to the centre. Public buses also serve local villages, though a car would give you more freedom to explore the rural Surrey countryside.
