Why Move to Chertsey
Chertsey is an incredibly favourable location in which to live. A pretty town boasting the perfect mix of relaxing semi-rural life and go-getting metropolitan charm, Chertsey sits within the Borough of Runnymede, in affluent Surrey.
Chertsey was granted its market charter by Henry I; it is among one of the oldest market towns in England. Now a commuter hot spot for those who are employed in London, the town is probably best known as being on Thorpe Park’s doorstep, a major attraction that receives thousands of visitors annually. With a tight-knit community feel, that plays host to an eclectic mix of local events every year.
Surrey is recognized as being an expensive county when it comes to property values, but Chertsey’s homes are actually relatively reasonably priced considering it is just a 50-minute trip into central London. Plus, Chertsey sits close to the M3 and the M25, making getting away by car incredibly convenient.
When it comes to shopping, Chertsey itself has enough local shops to cover all of your basic needs and the town is a very pleasant place for a leisurely stroll and relaxing coffee.
The additional benefit is that the town is perfectly placed for a quick trip into popular Kingston-upon-Thames and Richmond with its offerings of high-end shopping and posh restaurants, bars, and cafes.
Living in Chertsey means that residents also have direct access to some award-winning natural wooded spaces as well as the wonderful River Thames, ideal for walking, cycling, or exercising. Close to London, relatively safe with low crime rates, with plenty to do within a short distance making it absolutely perfect for work and great for families, Chertsey is a winner.
Schools & Education
When you are planning a move, it is prudent for those who are relocating with children to investigate thoroughly what local schools are available and how well they are rated.
There is no point moving to your dream home only to find schools in the local catchment area that are underperforming.
The good news is that Chertsey has a good selection of schools most are state run with a couple of independents to choose from too.
Within a two-mile radius all schools, both primary and secondary are either “good” or “outstanding” says Ofsted.
State primaries rated favourably by Ofsted include:
For well rated secondaries:
The closest three independent schools are:
Sir William Perkins’s School 11 – 19 years
Meath School 5-11 years
Further education provision is available at several colleges the closest being Brooklands College only 3½ miles. The college offers plenty of courses with a particular focus on BTEC qualifications (Business and Technology Education Council). Rated “good” by Ofsted in 2019.
Things to do in Chertsey
Making the most of your spare time is made that much simpler when you have access to such a wide variety of things to do and places to visit. In fact, its indoor and outdoor activities are some of the top reasons people flock here.
Chertsey certainly offers plenty of choices and here are a few ideas that might pique your interest:
Chertsey Meades is 175 acres of open space. Sitting on the banks of the river Thames, it is a wonderful area to wander or to take the children and the modern playground has picnic tables so you can spend the day here.
St Annes Hill is another popular local green space. The wooded landscape has a nature trail on an elevated site. Beautiful particularly in spring when the Bluebells bloom. There are also relics from the near and distant past dotted around the site that make this an amazing place to explore.
Head to Chertsey Museum for the low down on the town’s history. There’s a huge collection of artworks, photos, documents and a collection of clothing and textiles unique to the town, plus entry is free!!
Hobbledown Adventure Farm Park and Zoo are packed with family entertainment complete with animals, costumed characters, wooden play areas, a play barn, and a picnic area.
Thorpe Park is just two miles from Chertsey. The place to be for thrilling rides, attractions, and live events, and you can stay a few nights in the venue’s themed hotel. It is the ultimate destination for thrill seekers featuring some of the UK’s most popular roller coasters and amusement park rides.
The wider county of surrey has always had the reputation of being rather well to do.
Generally, the cost of a home in the region tends to be on the expensive side and currently, homes cost an average of £474,731, much higher than the overall UK average.
Despite the average price being high it certainly is fantastically good value compared to much more costly areas close by like Wentworth £4,569,000, and Virginia Water £2,245,530.
When it comes to style, the town is hard to top. There are more Georgian properties in Chertsey than in any other town in Surrey and plenty of classic examples of Regency, Victorian, and early 20th-century property too.
A bargain home is for sale currently. A one-bed period property with a pretty terrace, on sale for just £219,950, ideal for a first-time buyer.
You may be relocating with children; in which case you will require at least a three-bedroom home.
Head to Highfield Road, just a moment’s walk from Chertsey railway station, you can purchase a three-bedroom end-of-terrace cottage for £425,000.
