Are you one of the four in 10 Londoners considering a move away from the city in search of beautiful countryside, historic towns and a commute that’s under an hour? You’re certainly not alone according to a recent You Gov poll. Although Surrey may be the most expensive of the Home Counties, your family could enjoy an ample family home, in a town full of character, for less than a Zone 2 flat.
We were delighted to see that Godalming, and Farncombe, home to Toddletown Nursery, are featured in Homes and Property’s latest news. For families considering the move to Godalming, you’ll find it’s an ideal commuter town, combining easy access to London and a more idyllic way of life.
According to Homes and Property, the average property price in Godalming is £458,000. Or, if you have a smaller budget then explore Farncombe. This is family friendly suburb, less than 45 minutes from Waterloo and only a few minutes from Godalming, with its bustling town centre and everything you need for upmarket food shopping, retail therapy and socialising.
Toddletown Day Nursery is less than less than quarter of a mile to Farncombe Main Line Station and three quarters of a mile to Godalming and 3 miles to Guildford. The nursery is ideally located for families looking for the best of both worlds; easy access to both London and the countryside. The River Wey is on your doorstep and we have plenty of National Trust locations nearby, such as the Winkworth Arboretum.
According to Homes & Property: Need to know: Godalming...
Market forces: there has been a street market in Godalming since 1300 and every Friday locals shop for clothes, food, homewares, flowers and pretty much everything else at the town market.
Commuting: from 44 minutes to Waterloo. An annual season ticket costs from £3,984.
Schools: the famous Charterhouse independent school is just on the outskirts of town, but in the state sector it’s pretty much “good”. Ofsted reports all round at primary level, while Broadwater School, for seniors, is also rated “good” by the schools watchdog.
