9 of us stayed at Harambee House. The house Was clean and spacouse. There was milk in the fridge on our arrival which was nice. The grounds of the house are beautiful. Plenty of space for outside games. Johnny the owner popped over a few times to make sure we had everything we needed. He owns some sheep in the fields behind the house which we could feed. We all loved feeding the sheep. . The pool was Warm. It truly is a beautiful place to stay.

“Fabulous Find”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My family (from 4 generations) has just enjoyed a fabulous fortnight at Harambee.
The house is extremely spacious yet "homely", with lovely and well-proportioned rooms and, as previous reviewers have said, superbly appointed bathrooms.
The gorgeous heated pool was much appreciated and well used. The garden and grounds are very peaceful and relaxing and on many days we did not venture out. The large terrace and outside dining table made for several pleasant BBQ evenings.
We were all very sorry to leave and hope to return before too long to this wonderful place.
Thanks so much to Johnny who could not have been a more welcoming host and to George for his help and advice.

“Fantastic house, lovely landlord, wonderful week!”

My family needed somewhere special at short notice to spend a week making memories, Harambee, and Johnny certainly gave us that opportunity and more! There were three generations of us and the house catered for us all, from the study for the two uni students to keep up with their work, through to the drawing room where the elder members could sit in front of the log fire, and the family room where the teenagers (and some adults) entertained themselves on the Wii. We even swam in the pool in October! We also very much enjoyed eating in the grand dining room in the evenings, and using the luxurious bathrooms. But our stay wasn't just made by the house and facilities, Johnny (and George, the groundsman), went out of their way to make our week special and memorable. They helped make what could have been a sad week, into a time we will remember with happy thoughts, always.

“Fantastic large house, plenty of garden space, great warm pool, fields to play in, highly recommend.”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This large family house is hidden away down a laneway, not far from Grayshott & Haslemere. You are greeted by electric gates and a view of the tudor style house. Set within its own large grounds (3-5 acres I think), the house has beautiful groomed lawns and mature trees as the garden. Beyond that there are 2 large fields that are tree-lined. There are no other houses in sight. The view of the gardens & property from the kitchen window and patio is stunning. We were there in August and had great weather, so it looked green and perfect, plus we had use of the very warm pool every day. The house itself has 2 sitting rooms, which is great if you have children with you (there were 6 in our group), an office with wifi, large kitchen and dining room. There are 5 bedrooms, 2 are ensuite. Plus a main family bathroom and downstairs loo. The bathrooms are absolutely stunning. The master suite has a walk through wardrobe and a bathroom/wetroom that is out of a magazine. The bath overlooks the garden and the shower is a walk in room the size of most people's bathrooms.
The owner lives across the drive in his own cottage, so is nearby for help. The groundsman George is very friendly and helpful and about if anything is needed. There is a large plasma TV in the sitting room, with Wii, dvd player and a huge speaker ipod dock. Our group was 3 families coming together to have an extended family gathering and it worked really well, being great for the children and adults.
There is huge outside table on the patio with umbrellas, and we managed to have every meal outside.
Highly recommend.

“Stunning House and Location - didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Went to Harambee for my sister’s birthday with 10 friends. It was absolutely stunning. The rooms were positively luxurious with a massive ensuite bathroom in the master suite and a beautiful bespoke finish throughout the house. The highlight was swimming in the heated pool into the evening and dinner on the patio that overlooked the extensive grounds. The outdoor space seated all of our party comfortably and was lovely to sit watching the sun go down with some cocktails and friends. Cannot recommend it highly enough for a truly relaxing and special break.
