25 July 2018

With its rolling hills and beautiful countryside, the Surrey Hills has long been regarded as one of the most attractive parts of England; and the perfect area to choose to live in. For those wanting to enjoy a quieter way of life, now is the perfect time to make the move and find a new home in Surrey, so you can enjoy the British summertime discovering everything your new hometown and local area has to offer. 

Imagine quintessentially English villages nestled at the foothills of the Surrey Hills; complete with cosy pubs to while away an evening or two, village greens that play host to local cricket matches and village fetes, and independent local shops where you can be on first name terms with the local shopkeeper.

As well as the picturesque villages to explore, there are plenty of hidden gems throughout the county, offering a wide variety of things to see and do close to your new home. From enjoying the great outdoors either by foot or bike to exploring landscaped gardens or visiting one of the many historical sites and museums in the area there is something for all the family to enjoy. Discover the vibrant town of Guildford close by, take a short drive and enjoy a day out on one of Sussex’s award-winning beaches or take time out and enjoy messing about on the river.

Here are just a few suggestions about the places you could visit:
