Detached House in Godalming "the highest quality of life in Great Britain"

Detached House in Godalming, Surrey, Great Britain.

We have been exchanging our home since 1980 and are happy to organize non simultaneous and shorter exchanges - including city breaks. As we are both active "early retirees" (teachers) we can be quite flexible with our arrangements. We are just 50 kms (40 mins drive) from both Heathrow and Gatwick Airports.The beautiful Surrey countryside is within easy walking distance of our home and the nearby A3 provides a fast link to the south coast and London.

Godalming is regarded as a highly desirable residential town, partly due to its visual appeal and favourable transport links.In recent years it has been ranked the UK's third most desirable property hotspot,voted the fourth best area of the UK in which to live and judged in 2013 to have the highest quality of life in Great Britain- see the web link below from the Daily Telegraph. .

We live on the top of scenic Holloway hill, overlooking the local area a very short walk away from Godalming mainline station (45 mins from London's South bank).Our town is a safe and comfortable place to live and has a long and interesting history. The town has existed since Saxon times.It is mentioned in the will of King Alfred the Great in 899 and the name itself has Saxon origins, 'Godhelms Ingus' roughly translated as “the family of Godhelm”.
