If you're a fan of fine Georgian architecture, the attractive Surrey market town of Farnham will bowl you over. Situated just an hour's drive from London, the town boasts a rich heritage and has beautifully preserved attractions, such as the 12th century Farnham Castle, which offers visitors a wonderful experience.
Property in Farnham is a delightful mix of old and new, with period character cottages, post-war semis and detached family homes, plus new developments of flats for first-time buyers, or those looking to downsize.
Families are well catered for, with many good schools and further education establishments in and around the town.
As well as the many historic attractions, Farnham offers a fabulous selection of shops in the town centre and, don't forget, Winchester and London are within easy reach for big city shoppers.
Farnham Beerex is one of the largest beer festivals in Britain and is a major attraction for ale lovers. The event brings a large number of visitors to the area and is an important date on the calendar for retailers who benefit from the increased footfall.
For those not old enough to sample the delights of alcohol, the colourful annual carnival offers great excitement for all the family and highlights the fun-loving atmosphere in the town.
Farnham station provides fast commuter links to London Waterloo. Meanwhile, by road, the A31 links to Guildford, Winchester and Alton. Heathrow Airport is 31 miles by road and Gatwick and Southampton are 43 miles away.
Farnham has much to offer anyone looking to put down roots, either with a view to commuting to London or bringing up a family - or even both! The town's rich cultural heritage, coupled with a good array of modern facilities and lively ambience, makes this a very attractive place to look for a property.
