Burningfold Manor is a stunning Grade II listed 15th century manor house set within extensive gardens and grounds with views over the adjoining land and woodland of the Burningfold Estate. The historic house was once used as a hunting lodge and was sensitively extended to provide a new wing in the late 1920s. There is an abundance of period features throughout, including extensive exposed oak beams, oak doors, beautiful fireplaces, wood panelling, leaded light windows, as well as the original Minstrels' Gallery. The property has been updated over the years and now offers the opportunity to rent as a very comfortable family home, as well as providing exceptional rooms for entertaining.

The extensive accommodation includes on the ground floor, the original reception hall, 30' drawing room with log burning stove, sitting room, family room, an oak panelled dining room, sunroom, cloakroom with separate WC, a large bespoke fitted family kitchen with Aga and walk in larder, separate utility area with WC, laundry room and cloakroom. There is also a wine cellar currently used as a gym.

The circular main staircase dates back to 17th century and leads up to the landing and the beautiful, original Minstrels' Gallery. There is a second staircase that leads up to the first floor and to the principal bedroom suite which includes a dressing room and bathroom. Also on the first floor are four further bedrooms and four bathrooms/shower rooms (two en suite). The second floor is arranged as two bedrooms both with en suite bathrooms.

From Plaistow Road, the approach to the house is along the formal, tree-lined entrance drive into the estate. The drive forks left and then sweeps around to provide ample parking and access through the main front door to the original reception hall. By continuing along the entrance drive, and keeping left, there is extensive additional parking and access to the garaging. The delightful, mature gardens and grounds include the original walled garden, areas of lawn and beds, stone paths and flagstone terraces. The swimming pool area has extensive terracing, a large area of lawn, two changing rooms and a WC. The property also offers a hard tennis court.

Burningfold Manor is situated within the Burningfold Estate, which is a mixed-use farm and Polo venue, with various events taking place through the summer months. The estate is situated in a peaceful rural setting in Surrey, close to the West Sussex border, about 1 mile south of the village of Dunsfold, a typical English village with its cricket green, 13th century church, local pub and village stores/post office. Plaistow, another pretty village, is about 3 miles to the south with its village green and pond, church, local pub and village stores/post office. More comprehensive facilities can be found at Cranleigh, about 6 miles to the north-east, Godalming, about 8 miles to the north and Haslemere, about 9 miles to the south-west. Godalming has a mainline railway station with services to London Waterloo taking about 40minutes (fastest). Alternatively, Witley Station is 6 miles distant (fastest service is about 53 minutes). The very popular city of Guildford lies about 11 miles to the north from where there is access onto the A3, which connects with the M25, giving access to the national motorway network and to Central London (about 40 miles).

The area provides many walking and cycling opportunities along local footpaths and bridleways, without going onto the public highway. There is golf at Wisley, Cowdray, West Sussex and Liphook. Polo is played on the estate at Burningfold and also at Hurtwood in Ewhurst and Cowdray Park in Midhurst. Racing is at Ascot and Goodwood and the south coast is about 25 miles away with many sailing and other leisure opportunities.

There is an excellent choice of independent schools locally including Charterhouse, Cranleigh, St Catherine's, Longacre, Barrow Hills, King Edwards,
Duke of Kent and Hurtwood House.
