Living in Horsell
Moments from Moor's Nook, Horsell Common is an expansive area of heath and woodland, ideal for afternoon strolls and summer picnics. Horsell Common's famous sand pits have attracted science fiction fans since former resident H.G. Wells referred to them in his classic novel The War of The Worlds.
On a more practical note, on the village high street you'll find a supermarket, local butcher and pharmacy, as well as a barber and popular gastropub, The Red Lion. Other convenient amenities include a nearby doctor’s surgery.
Just a fifteen-minute walk away, Woking town features department stores, high-quality food shops and delicatessens, as well as restaurants and wine bars. Enjoy an exhibition and a coffee at The Lightbox, Woking's award-winning arts space and café. And if you fancy a spot of golf, the area boasts the most golf courses back-to-back in the South East of England, including the renowned New Zealand and Wisley golf clubs. Keeping fit is easy at Woking's newly refurbished leisure centre, which has a swimming pool and a gym, badminton and squash courts.
