Living in Horsell
Moments from Moor's Nook, Horsell Common is an expansive area of heathland, grass and woodland, ideal for afternoon strolls and summer picnics. The Common's sand pits have attracted science fiction fans since former Woking resident H.G. Wells referred to them in his classic novel The War of The Worlds. On the village high street, you'll find a supermarket, local butcher and pharmacy, as well as a barber and the popular gastropub, The Red Lion. Other useful facilities include a nearby doctor’s surgery.
A fifteen-minute walk away, the medieval town of Woking is home to department stores, bakeries, fishmongers and a choice of restaurants, delis and wine bars. Find locally produced goods at the monthly farmers market and enjoy the exhibitions at The Lightbox, Woking's award-winning arts space and café. The area is home to a number of renowned golf courses, including Wentworth and Sunningdale, while Woking's recently refurbished leisure centre has a swimming pool and a gym, as well as badminton and squash courts
