The South East England region

Rook's Cottage is located 2 miles west of the village of Cranleigh and near to the villages of Dunsfold and Alfold.

Cranleigh's claim to fame is that it is the largest village in England. In recent year's it has blossomed into a vibrant centre with many independent stores and excellent eateries. Throughout the area there are many beautiful walks, including the climb to the top of Leith Hill- the highest point in South East England, flat easy walking along the 20 mile towpath of the River Wey and the spectacular scenery of the North Downs Way.

Many other beautiful villages are close by including Shere, famed for its ancient church (used for the snowy wedding scene in the film 'Bridget Jones'), beautiful village houses and shops and at its heart the country pub 'The White Horse' (used in the film, 'The Holiday')

The major shopping centres of Guildford (8m) and Horsham(14m) provide every major store and restaurant you could wish for. Guildford has major shows and concerts at the GLive Centre and the famous Yvonne Arnaud Theatre showcases many pre west end productions

Both Guildford and Horsham have state of the art leisure centres.

The coast is one hour's drive with excellent beaches at Climping, Littlehampton and West Wittering.

London is a fast 35/40 minute train journey from Guildford to Waterloo.
