Cranleigh lies in the Weald on the main route from Guildford to Horsham and is said to be the largest village in the country. It also sits at the foot of the Surrey Hills, which provides some 3,000 acres of woodland and heathland that is held in trust and open to the public. It is therefore a haven for walkers, horse riders and cyclists.
Stockland Square, in the centre of the village, was built on the site of the former station. The refurbished square now boasts an attractive range of shops, and the High Street boasts two independent department stores, M&S Food and a selection of restaurants and cafes.The Health Centre, Leisure Centre and Arts Centre are situated at the southern end of the High Street.
Cranleigh Common is famous for its cricket green, which claims to be the finest in England after the Oval. Cranleigh School is one of the UK’s leading public schools. It was founded in 1865 as the Surrey County School for farmer’s sons and still has a farm and stables today. There is also a further choice of schooling in both the private and the state sector.
