The Guest House is a 15th century oak timbered building, which was bequeathed to Surrey County Council in 1954 for public use and became home to the Lingfield Library Centre a year later. So named because it was originally used for visitors to the nearby (monastic) College of Lingfield, the Guest House was restored in 1898 and retains many of the original features. Particularly noteworthy is the Hall, which forms the centre of the building and opens to the roof.
The Guest House contains a collection of artistic and antiquarian objects including four tapestries, thought to be Flemish in origin, which hang in the Hall. It also houses the Hayward Memorial Local History Centre.
At the back of the building is a conservatory opening onto gardens, which are also open to the public.
