Compton is a charming village, that is well positioned for Guildford and Godalming, is close to the A3 to London and the south coast and is only 45 minutes to London on the train (from Farncombe). Compton has retained much of its character, it has two conservation areas, is in Surrey Hills AONB and is within Green Belt. There are 31 listed buildings including an ancient 10th Century Church (St Nicholas) an English Heritage cemetery (Watts Cemetery) and is the only village in the UK with a National Art Gallery dedicated to a single Artist.
The current population is approximately 1000 and there are less than 400 properties. The village has two excellent two Public Houses and a number of facilities for hire as well as an eclectic mix of small shops.
We are so lucky to have these very special venues for hire in (or near) Compton.
