Counties > Surrey > Salfords


SALFORDS is nice in parts but has the disadvantage of straddling the A23. It has a village shop-cum-post-office, and several newsagents, but people tend to aim for Redhill, Horley or Hookwood for their major shops. There is a primary school, but older children have to bus to Horley or Redhill for secondary schools. Long-suffering parents spend a lot of time chauffeuring their children about because there is not much for them to do in the village itself (the scout group is at neighbouring Sidlow). Helicopters buzz in and out from the nearby aerodrome. A three-bedroom semi with a long garden here might cost £240,000; a two-bedroom bungalow about the same. Larger properties in leafier roads lie to the east.

Good for: M25, M23, Gatwick Airport.
