Cottage in Alfold, Guildford, Surrey - Superbly Located in a Beautiful Countryside Setting, Makes a Wonderful Retreat

Superbly located in a beautiful countryside setting, this attractive cottage makes a wonderful retreat. Scenic walks can be enjoyed around the owner’s 50 acre estate with ponds and horse paddocks and public footpaths lead to the Arun and Wey canal. The cottage is well placed for exploring the area; the quaint hamlet of Alford has a church, shop and pub (¾ mile), and within easy driving distance are historic Guildford (trains to London 30 mins), Horsham, Brighton, Gatwick, Heathrow, plus many National Trust homes and gardens. For younger visitors the property is within reasonable driving distance of Lego Land, Chessington World of adventure and Thorpe Park!

A super cottage with access to some great walks. We will definitely be back for a return visit when it is warm enough to use the pool. March 2008.
