Useful road links are available via the M23 leading onto the A27 for the coast or the M25 and onto the national motorway network.

Brooks Stephen equine vets will be just a three-minute drive away, if you require any veterinary attention (0.8 miles).
If you like your hunting, head out with the the Old Surrey Burstow and West Kent.
Spottles Farm is on the market with H.J Burt for offers in excess of £850,000. Let’s take a look around…
The stables are to the north of the property, next to the entrance gate and include a block of three stables with tack room, a separate hay barn and two further boxes with concrete surround, electric and water services. There is a redundant 40x20m sand school understood to include a base and drainage. It is currently overgrown, but offers scope for restoration, resurfacing and re- fencing.
The remainder of the land comprises a mix of pasture and garden, which is mostly laid to lawn.
Spottles Farm is an extended Grade II-listed Surrey farmhouse that would benefit from renovation and modernisation. The property sits in approximately 1.3 acres of paddocks and gardens and was extended in the late 60s/early 70s to provide a breakfast room and master bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
The property is approached via a five bar gate leading to a gravelled track and parking area. A storm porch leads to the front door opening to a lobby with a toilet and on to the breakfast room with larder. The galley kitchen, with adjacent utility area, has access to the gardens via a boot room and with fitted wooden units, space and plumbing for dishwasher and washing machine.
The kitchen leads onto a dining room with large fireplace and quarry tile floor which carries through to the sitting room with a large inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove. An office with door to the gardens completes the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor, a corridor/study area leads to two of the bedrooms, while a family bathroom, a further bedroom and the principal bedroom with en-suite bathroom and separate shower, are also on this level.
