Haslemere named as one of the best places to live in Surrey

We love Haslemere and are delighted that our market town has been named one of the top 10 places to live in Surrey by Muddy Stilettos. The well-known lifestyle website encouraged readers to vote for the best places to live outside of London, and over 25,000 people took part.

The results reveal great passion for Haslemere’s sense of community, quality of local facilities and stunning surroundings. It’s no wonder that property in our area is in such high demand.

Our sales and lettings team all live and work locally and enjoy being part of such an amazing community. If you’re considering moving to Haslemere, you might be interested to find out why we think it’s the perfect place to buy a home or rental property.
