The Buying Agent Insider Guide 

Lovely, leafy and luxurious…Cobham offers all the quintessential charms of a commuter town. It has ancient and historical sites matched with modern developments built sympathetically to the surrounds.

Fans of Chelsea Football Club will recognise the name of the town even though it is some miles from the team’s London home at Stamford Bridge – when the club decided to modernise its training facilities a few years back it chose a site on the outskirts of the town for the state-of-the-art complex. The resulting influx of star names to the area added a further appeal to the place.

Star-spotting aside, Cobham can be enjoyed for its pretty mix of historic highways and byways and a retail and leisure offering which shows the townsfolks truly know how to work, rest and play in this fabulous Surrey spot.
