reasons to move to surrey

Since Surrey is within easy commuting distance of London, it’s often among the first choices a person considers when planning their exit from the capital, perhaps tired of the extreme crowdedness and thoroughly fed up with the petite and diminutive flat and apartment sizes.

Spanning a quarter of the county, they encompass the chalk hills of the North Downs and stretch from Farnham to Oxsted. Within them lie the Greensand Hills of Haslemere. From thick woodland to quaint, picture-postcard villages to bustling market towns, exploring this part of Surrey is like stepping into a technicolor filmset. The landscape is teeming with wildlife, rare insects and plants, and thanks to their photogenic beauty, the Surrey Hills have the honour of being the very first place to be given the AONB designation back in 1958, ensuring that they remain as they are, carefully conserved and managed (some sections are owned by the National Trust), both for us and for future generations to enjoy indefinitely.
