Why do you find GU4 a great place to live?

Jan

"Chilworth has access to two railway stations, its own and Shalford. There is a post office and local grocers. A bus route goes through the village. Schools for the infants and junior children. It is an enjoyable walk to Guildford town and close to Godalming and an easy car journey to Dorking. The whole area is surrounded by beautiful views of countryside and access to lovely walks. "

"The Percy Arms in Chilworth is amazing."

February 2015

Local resident

"The fantastic countryside is on your doorstep, the community is friendly and welcoming, the infant and 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!"
