Right in the middle of village, back street, absolute quiet at night. If you run out of milk, put the kettle on, run through lane to Co-Op or Tesco stores, and you’ll be back as kettle boils. A huge Sainsbury's supermarket is within a 10-15 min walk or 5 min by car or bus, - and Waitrose, around 5 mins by car.
Knaphill is like a suburb of Woking though doesn’t feel like it. Very much Surrey green belt. Lots of walking and cycling areas, particularly along the Basingstoke Canal. Brookwood cemetery second largest in Europe - 500 acres. Very interesting to visit/walk/ride and experience the Commonwealth War Graves site.
Some 9 local pubs are accessible and vary in style and offerings with a number providing great English Pub atmosphere and first class food. The Jolly Farmer, the Red Lion at Horsell, the Nags Head in Knaphill, The Inn at West End are 4 of our favourites.

About Our Family
We are retired couple from Adelaide, Australia. In late 2016 we moved to UK and bought this delightful house in Surrey and have used it as both home and base from which to do a lot of travelling. We've pretty much renovated everything.
We returned to Adelaide December 2019 for 3 months only and, due to Covid, were not allowed to leave until mid-July 2021. We're now back in UK and here for some time.
We would love to swap our house with yours, UK only. No car-exchange. Don't mind where we go - it will all be lovely and the opportunity to actually meet our exchange partners. We're VERY useful people and will look after your house well. Happy to look after animals and plants.
We’re Australian retirees from Adelaide who have a base in UK. We’re travelling as much as $$ allow, up to 6 months each year. We would love others to experience our comfortable, cosy house located in the lovely green belt of East Surrey, nr Woking and Guildford. London by train is only 35 minutes away.
We are house renovators and know how to be careful when looking after other people’s things and property. Very responsible.
