Twenty years ago, this was the heart of what was called the 'gin and Jag' belt; now it
is known affectionately as The Beverley Hills of Surrey for the glamour and celebrity lifestyle from the WAGs of the Chelsea football players whose training grounds are situated in the heart of the area.
It is a fabulous combination of glamour, niche high street shops and restaurants and countryside; it has all the feel of London life and it is minutes from glorious country and riverside walks. In fact, it is a few minutes drive to The Surrey Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty and if you drive to Esher close by you can be in London within half an hour.
There is a plethora of great schools to choose from including the well-known and much sought after International ACS and recently opened is the Ofsted 1 rated Cobham Free School, a state school, which caters for students from nursey to sixth form.
Why we love Cobham – There is so much to do including a visit to Painshill which is a beautiful award-winning 18th century landscape garden in Surrey. The 158 acre wonderland has something for everyone and makes a great family day out. Discover the mystical follies, historic plantings, the John Bartram Heritage Collection of North American trees and shrubs, and some of Surrey's amazing wildlife.
