"The Percy Arms in Chilworth is amazing."

"The fantastic countryside is on your doorstep, the community is friendly and welcoming, the infant & junior schools are highly thought of (and very good - my children are there), plus Guildford is only a short journey over the hills less than 10 mins away. Best of both worlds!"
