Map & Directions

Road Directions

From Dorking, take the A25 to Guildford for about seven miles until you reach the village of Gomshall. After passing under a railway arch, take the second turning on the left, carry straight on over a level crossing, and continue up the hill (about half a mile) until you reach Burrows Cross crossroads. Turn right into Hook Lane to Burrows Lea and the entrance to The Sanctuary is clearly marked as the first large driveway on the left.

Public Transport Directions

Burrows Lea is about one mile from the nearest railway station in the village of Gomshall, close to Shere. Gomshall is a small station which has neither a taxi service nor a public telephone so guests are not advised to use Gomshall station except on the day of their visit when The Sanctuary's own car can meet them at Gomshall Station to take them to and from Burrows Lea. This service is by prior arrangement.
