Bed and breakfast accommodation in a charming 18th Century building full of character and charm and nestled in the idyllic setting of the Surrey Hills.

What was The Abinger Arms pub is now a state of the art cookery school and brings the 18th century inn back to life. The Abinger Cookery School is located in the village of Abinger Hammer right in the heart of the beautiful Surrey Hills.  Home to some of the most stunning English countryside and surrounded by rolling hills and quintessentially English villages it is perfect for walkers, cyclists and those wanting to escape London.

We are just over an hour away from London by car and train. We have plenty of parking available and only a 5 minute walk from Gomshall train station – give us a call and someone will come to the station to collect you.  We also have storage for your bikes if you’ve decided to give public transport a miss! We are within walking distance of the adjacent charming villages of Gomshall and Shere.

Our Rooms

We have 3 beautifully appointed bedrooms each decorated with a farmhouse feel. Rooms are available to students who wish to have overnight accommodation the night before or after a course. All rooms are on a Bed & Breakfast basis. We offer a choice of breakfast, from continental, something healthy to kick-start your day or an English breakfast. Wherever possible we source our ingredients locally. Breakfast is served from 8am and served in our dining room.

Our Prices

Our prices include accommodation from Sunday to Thursday nights. Students stay in our comfortable, shared rooms at The Abinger.
