Possibly Surrey's best kept secret.


Shamley Green

A quintessentially pretty Surrey village with two good pubs and a super active community life - Shamley Green was also the former home of Alfred Hitchcock among others.


A very pretty town surrounded by gorgeous countryside and with great transport links to both the capital and the south coast - what's not to love about Haslemere.


Idyllic country charm and yet with London still on the doorstep - it's no wonder Chobham is a highly sought-after address.


Whether it's a village - as it claims - or a town, there's no denying that Cranleigh's burgeoning arts and foodie scene, plus beautiful open countryside make it a very desirable place to live.


A thriving and affluent market town with a high street chock full of independent shops and restaurants, and still an easy commute to the capital - well, hello there Reigate.


It's known for its posh pads and famous residents, but there's more to this riverside town than pure glitz.
