The original building was constructed in 1790 as part of The Broadwood Estate. It was previously used by The Crown to store Her Majesty The Queen’s State Carriages. These carriages were moved in the late 1980s to Dorking Museum and The Carriage House was renovated and converted into a unique, high-quality home nestled on the Surrey/Sussex Borders.
The nearby villages of Capel and Rusper offer a selection of local shops, playgroups and primary schools, a surgery, village churches, clubs, societies and several fine country pubs. Nearby towns include Horsham and Dorking. Ockley Station is 4.8 miles drive away. (10 minutes by car.)
