About our home

We have a spacious comfortable family home. The open plan kitchen/family room/lounge/office is great for the family and for entertaining. We also have a formal dining room with a table to seat 12/14 and an elegant lounge with open fireplace - and a huge pile of logs waiting to be burnt! There are three lovely bathrooms, all with power showers.The garden is flat and attractive - mostly to lawn with a patio/BBQ near the house. There is a detached double garage housing bikes and the usual household stuff!! we have a large childrens playhouse and trampoline in the garden now (for grandchildren) and a myriad of toys!
We also have a 6 berth Motor Home with large enclosed awning - all fully equipped and ready to go - which can be used subject to availability and insurance or we can stay in that whilst exchangers use the house.

Where is it?


We live in a sylvan setting - with woodland on 2 sides, which open out on to Horsell Common where H.G.Wells "War of the Worlds" was set: lovely for walks. The village of Horsell has all amenities for daily life: Woking just 2 miles away is a commuter town with a large shopping mall, superb Theatre and multi screen cinema, Leisure Centre and Pool with Lagoon. The rail link to London is excellent - trains run every 10/15mins and take 23mins (non-stopping). Day trips to London are easy. Thorpe Park Theme Park is just 6miles away and the lovely town of Guildford just 6miles south. Being just 4 miles from the M25 access to the rest of the cultural heritage/museums/scenic places in Britain is easy.
