Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Believed to have originally been a farmhouse and also a former Inn, Woolpack cottages was rebuilt in 1906 after a fire as three cottages. Numbers two and three were combined in later years to form this delightful property. Ideally situated along a farm lane, the cottage which backs directly onto open countryside with views to Leith Hill, also enjoys its own paddock, which could have a variety of uses.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors and comprises an entrance hall, living room and dining room, both with open fire places, a conservatory, bespoke fitted cottage style kitchen/breakfast room complete with an aga, snug with open fire and a handy utility room with WC. On the first floor the master bedroom has a contemporary style en-suite fitted in 2015 with walk in shower, a further double bedroom and a single bedroom both serviced by a family bathroom. Two separate staircases lead from the landing to the top floor, with two double bedrooms and an office/bedroom six ( which would lend itself to create a further bathroom).


The village of Capel is situated in the Surrey Hills District of the Mole Valley and is some six miles south of Dorking. The village consists of two shops, a garage, surgery, first and middle schools, a 13th Century Church and a 17th Century pub. Dorking offers comprehensive retail and leisure facilities including the Dorking Halls Theatre with cafes, cinema and live performances to suit a range of audiences.

The nearby railway station in Ockley (approx 0.8 miles away), offers direct access to London Victoria in approximately 60 minutes whilst the M25 can be accessed via Junction 9 at Leatherhead. The area is surrounded by miles of unspoilt National Trust countryside ideal for the walking/outdoor enthusiast.


Outside, the grounds are truly a feature with a westerly aspect and extending to around two acres. A gravel driveway provides ample parking and leads to a timber double car port with workshop and store above. To the side of the drive is a pond with flourishing lilies. To the rear of the house is a paved patio, ornate pond and flower beds and lawn. A pathway leads into the paddock incorporating a stable, vegetable patch, numerous established deciduous trees and a timber pavilion (in need of repair).
