The Property Market in Cranleigh
Nestled in the heart of rural Surrey, Leighwood Fields is moments from the centre of Cranleigh. Proud to be known as England’s largest village, Cranleigh offers the quintessential country lifestyle.
Discover a thriving, friendly community, enchanting high street filled with independent stores and cafés, outstanding schools – and, of course, acres of glorious green space, stretching for miles around. In fact, with everything you could want on your doorstep, you may never want to leave.
While England is blessed with delightful villages, Cranleigh is something quite special. Records show a settlement in the area from 1166 (then named ‘Cranlea’ – a woodland clearing visited by cranes), and the charming centre is dotted with timber-framed buildings.
While life unwinds at a gentle pace, the community is far from sleepy. Independent shops are thriving, and clubs and societies have sprung up for every sort of interest and age group. Locals take a huge amount of pride in their village and neighbourhood spirit flows in abundance.
Wherever you go, there’s a certain ‘Cranleigh’ feeling – a shared sense of pleasure in this idyllic little spot. It’s there in the maples lining the high street, beside the pristine lawns, where people relax in the summer as children play nearby.
It’s there at the 1930s Village Hall, host to everything from craft fairs to model railway shows. And it’s joyously present during Cranleigh in Bloom, when hanging baskets and wheelbarrows of flowers appear on every corner, and Stocklund Square overflows with colour.
