5 bedroom home
A beautiful village nestled in rolling English countryside
Its residents call it ‘Britain’s largest village’ and living here, you’ll soon see why. While Cranleigh offers the standard and range of amenities that you might find in a town, it exudes all the best elements of village life, and what’s more, it’s surrounded by some of Surrey’s finest countryside.
Set within their own 33 acres of ancient woodland, the remarkable homes at Swallowhurst enjoy a stunning setting. It’s the kind of place everyone would like to call their home.
Discover the picturesque village of Cranleigh
Many bemoan the loss of independent stores in our high streets, but not so in Cranleigh, which proudly boasts a fabulous array of bespoke shops and boutiques as well as having a weekly market offering local produce and a monthly Farmers’ Market; all contributing to the relaxed way of life that Cranleigh offers. A butcher, fishmonger, gifts and fashion shops are punctuated by familiar, well-known names such as Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s, WH Smith and Boots – evidence that Cranleigh really does have it all.
A place you’re guaranteed a warm welcome
It might be the numerous bars, bistros, restaurants and cafés in Cranleigh that provide huge variety and choice when it comes to spending precious time out with family and friends… or the fact that local traders soon get to know you and know your particular likes and dislikes, but one thing is for certain: you’ll soon be part of village life with all the benefits and pleasures that it brings.
Cricket is played on the village throughout the summer which also plays host each year to the annual Bonfire Party. The Cranleigh show is also nearby, offering the oldest agricultural shows in the UK. Other events include the Cranleigh Carnival & Fun Day in June and the Cranleigh Classic Car Show, while The Cranleigh Arts Centre provides a regular programme of entertainment including films, theatre, comedy, exhibitions and workshops.
Manns of Cranleigh is situated in the heart of the high street, which oozes that traditional department store feel and is very popular in the area. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, visit Julia and Amy in Truffles Bakery and Tea Room, where they make freshly baked bread and cakes every morning.
So many of these old establishments have disappeared from English villages. However, Cranleigh has managed to keep these important intricate details which make it that much more charming and picturesque.
If you are looking for a more substantial shopping experience, then Guildford and Dorking are just on your doorstep, with beautiful architecture, setting and history. Both are adorned with popular high street brands, leisure experiences and restaurants.
Live life in harmony with nature
The ancient woodland of Canfold Wood forms the backdrop to Swallowhurst and the area is further surrounded by the beautiful greenery of Surrey Hills; it’s an enviable setting for a home and offers residents vast opportunities for fresh outdoor experiences. For days out explore The South Downs National Park at Midhurst; cycle, stroll or ride along The Downs Link that runs north to St Martha’s in Guildford or south to Shoreham-by-Sea, or visit Leith Hill, the highest point in South East England.
For the ultimate in equestrian experiences visit Hurtwood Park Polo Club which is just five minutes away, while golf enthusiasts will find they are well served by numerous golf clubs including the Cranleigh Golf & Country Club, Wildwood Golf & Country Club, Gatton Manor Golf Club in Ockley or Bramley Golf Club.
An area with a rich history
An interesting story lies behind the name of Cranleigh; originally called Cranley it was renamed in the mid 1860s when the post office decided there was too much confusion with Crawley in Sussex. The village grew dramatically during the industrial revolution with improved communications, and the population nearly doubled in size during the 19th Century. The first cottage hospital opened in Cranleigh in 1859 and it remains an integral part of the village.
Swallowhurst itself lies on a site formerly home of the well regarded tile factory Swallow Tiles, founded by Raymond Swallow in 1860. Taking advantage of the clay rich soil in the area, it produced bricks and clay pots which were then transported to London by canal. Roof tiles were later added to the production line and the company continued to flourish until 2008, when sadly the manufacturing became uneconomical, but Raymond Swallow’s legacy lives on in the naming of Swallowhurst.
Surrounded by woodland and perfectly situated
Rural living offers a relaxed way of life but having easy access to a range of extensive amenities ensures no compromise is required. Swallowhurst offers the best of both worlds; surrounded by the Cranleigh countryside, and with the comprehensive facilities of the village, it is also within close proximity of many of Surrey’s principal towns including Guildford, Horsham, Godalming and Dorking while a plethora of pretty villages and hamlets provide plenty of other places to enjoy in your spare time.
Bright futures built on solid foundations
Cranleigh has an abundance of schools in the area, ranging from pre-school and nurseries up to secondary school, including independent schools and special needs schools, all with good OFSTED reports. Within a mile and a half are three excellent primary schools, and Gleblands Secondary School is just a 4 -minute drive away.
Cranleigh School is a highly regarded boarding school, situated just under 2 miles away from Swallowhurst. It has a lot to offer with renowned facilities for sport, drama and music and has also been endorsed by the Good School Guide with emphasis on their academic achievements.
Country roads leading to capital connections
Cranleigh’s rural setting does not leave it remote when it comes to meeting one’s daily schedules; for regular commuters to London there are direct train services from Dorking, Godalming and Guildford to London Waterloo and from Dorking and Horsham to London Victoria. There’s also a direct rail service to London Bridge from Horsham. Regular bus services also run between the towns and villages. Access to the motorway network (M25) can be reached via the A3 at Milford Junction while the M23 is within 20 miles. Gatwick Airport is a convenient 24.3 miles (38 minutes) by road.
