Godalming named as one of the top ten places to live in Surrey

Our property experts all love living and working in and around Godalming as the area offers a fantastic lifestyle. So much so that it was recently selected as one of the best places to live in Surrey.

Muddy Stilettos, the popular online what’s on guide, recently asked readers to vote for their favourite place to live outside of the City and received a fantastic response.

More than 25,000 people took up the opportunity to vote and when the results were announced, it came as no surprise that Godalming featured in the top ten list of places to live in the county.

The results highlight how much people value Godalming’s community spirit, array of excellent facilities and stunning countryside. It’s these qualities that attract people to relocate to the town and properties to buy and rent are consistently in demand.
