The Cottages

Situated in Bury Street

The four Caleb Lovejoy Cottages are found in a Grade II listed building situated in Bury Street, close to St Nicolas’s Church at the bottom of the High Street in Guildford.

This is an excellent location with easy access to the town’s theatres and restaurants and a stone’s throw away from the beautiful River Wey.

Guildford Station is a short walk. On street resident’s parking is available (at an additional charge to the resident).

Each of the cottages comprises a living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Two of the cottages have upstairs bedrooms with the other two being single storey dwellings. The cottages share a secluded rear garden.

Donations & Bequests

The charity’s only significant source of income is from the charges paid by the residents. As an almshouse, these charges must be set at affordable levels below market rates. Consequently, other forms of income are always welcome as maintaining such a historic building is very costly. If you would like to help the charity in our fundraising efforts and continue the great work started by Caleb Lovejoy in 1676, perhaps as a one-off donation or as a bequest in your will, please contact.
