Gildings Barn is an ideal filming or photoshoot location and can be used for Private events such as Anniversaries, Product Launches, Workshops & Exhibitions. The Barns are set in tranquil Surrey countryside on the border of West Sussex. Conveniently located just six miles south of Dorking, close to Gatwick Airport and the M25 and 50 minutes from London.
Gildings Farm was originally part of the Cudworth Manor Estate. It was sold in 1957 to the late Peter Hall, local farmer, and was subsequently farmed as part of Green Lane Farm, just half a mile away. The original buildings at Gildings were the front barns, forming three sides of a typical small farm yard. Peter then added 2 addititional barns in the late 1980’s.
The breath-taking beauty of the main barn quickly captured the hearts of many local people, and from its completion in 1993 it has been in high demand for weddings and parties, and has been used extensively by local groups and societies for a range of events.

Directions – from Surrey Oaks pub in Newdigate (with this on your left hand side when you are facing Charlwood direction) head towards Charlwood on Parkgate Road, which quickly turns into Partridge Lane. Shortly after the pub, pass a left hand turning to Brockham/Leigh, then in less than half a mile pass another left turning to Charlwood and Horley. Continue on Partridge Lane, passing Coombers Farm on the left, then Oak Lane Farm. Slow down for a sharp right hand bend, then pass the entrance to Sturtwood Farm on the left. Continue on Partridge lane, over a small bridge, then pass a sign post on the right, ‘Beambrook Field Station’. Keep going, you are nearly there. Look out for the next farm on the right, ‘Holly Farm’ and almost opposite on the left is the entrance to Gildings Barns. You’ll see a vintage horse drawn plough fixed to a log at the end of the drive. If you reach Burnt Oak Lane on the right you’ve gone 20 meters too far.
From the Surrey Oaks pub, Gildings Barns is approximately 1.7 miles on the same road.
