The fantastical world Lewis Carroll created was a masterful journey of the imagination. A much loved counter to the trials of everyday life. The Carrolls elegantly captures this feeling. Beautifully designed and attentively finished, each of the properties within the development represents a harmonious escape from the pressures of modern life. These are homes in the truest sense.
Surrounded by the rolling Surrey Hills, Guildford has all the charms of a country town. However, don’t let its picturesque nature and quaint pedestrianised cobbled high street fool you into thinking that this is a sleepy hamlet. With arguably the best shopping in the South East, the town centre is home to a host of well known brands; as well as a veritable world tour of gastronomic delights. Britten’s, The March Hare, Jamie’s Italian, Cote and Olivio are particular local favourites. As are The Weyside and The Albany, if you’re looking for a cosy pub. Cultural nourishment is also well catered for, courtesy of the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, The Electric Theatre, G Live and the highly acclaimed Guildford Philharmonic Orchestra.
Alongside its abundance of greenery and peaceful ambience, Guildford’s education provision is one of the area’s biggest draws for families. An array of schooling options are available. Two of the biggest attractions in the area are Royal Grammar School and Guildford High School. The former being an excellent all boys secondary, found right in the heart of Guildford town centre. While the latter caters to girls aged 5-18 and was voted The Sunday Times Independent School of the Year 2012-13.
Guildford's superb transport links are also a huge attraction. With its express train links putting Waterloo station and the rest of Central London as little as 34 minutes away, its popularity with commuters is easy to understand. Additionally, with the A3 only 0.8 miles away and Junction 10 of the M25 just 11 miles, it’s perfectly placed for motorists. Not to mention those looking to explore further afield, thanks to the fast access to Heathrow Airport (29 miles) and Gatwick Airport (36 miles) it affords.
