Why Move to Horley
The mostly suburban town of Horley is situated within the Borough of Reigate and Banstead within the county of Surrey. Plenty of famous people have lived in Horley, including Robert Baden-Powell, a British Army officer, writer, founder and first Chief Scout of the worldwide Scout Movement.
Opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors present themselves easily in Horley. The Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the fact that the town is encompassed by Green Belt land make getting outside a pleasure. Along with Reigate, Redhill and Crawley, Horley is located in prime commuter territory. It offers speedy links via rail direct into Victoria Station within 30 minutes with the additional benefit of being just two miles from Gatwick Airport.
Catering for everyone’s basic requirements, Horley’s central shopping area is compact with a range of popular supermarkets alongside some interesting independents. For more choice, head to nearby Crawley where you will find the County Mall. Situated in the heart of Crawley town centre it is home to over 80 retailers including many favourite high street brands.
Having a brilliant community spirit means that Horley loves a street party. Patriotism provides the perfect excuse for a knees-up in April with the ever-popular St George’s Day Fair, something the town seems to do better than anywhere else in the area
Horley has so much going for it, it is hard to ignore. Historic buildings, local heritage, and impressive open green space offer residents a harmonious mix of excitement and peaceful relaxation in equal measures.
Schools & Education
These days it has become ever more important to ensure that you relocate close to a good school. Education provision for the town is above average.
All local schools are part of the Horley Learning Partnership, a local educational confederation that enables schools to develop a range of shared services.
There are three primary schools (Manorfield, Trinity Oaks and Langshott), two junior schools (Yattendon and Meath Green Junior), and two infant schools (Meath Green Infants and Horley Infants). All perform well.
There is also one secondary serving the town, Oakwood School. Providing education to 1200 children the school has been rated as “good” with Ofsted reporting that “the large majority of pupils are making good progress across all subjects and year groups”.
Currently, there is no sixth form provision in Horley. School leavers continue their studies by travelling to either Redhill, Crawley, or Reigate (e.g., East Surrey College and Reigate College).
Things to do in Horley
Everyone likes to make clever use of their spare time no matter what their interests may be.
Finding something to do in Horley and across the region is no issue as there is a multitude of choices.
Here are a few suggestions you may want to explore:
Horley may be located in affluent Surrey; however, Zoopla estimates the average cost of a home in the town is standing at £410,856. Not bad at all considering its proximity to London.
In terms of property types, flats in Horley sold for an average of £224,053 and terraced houses for £348,083.
Having 220 homes on the market within one mile also means buyers are faced with a really extensive choice of properties both in style and in price.
One- and two-bedroom homes are the most prevalent, taking up over half of the available stock.
This is due to the town’s recent expansion which has resulted in a swathe of new and modern residential developments, new-build properties, flats, and maisonettes.
Outside of the town itself, there is a wealth of beautiful open green countryside, villages, and detached period homes situated on sizeable plots. Hookwood is a popular neighbourhood just a mile out of town. Here you will find detached residences boasting envious views across adjacent farmland. The cost however is expensive, and properties sell from £895,000.
Those with a more modest budget can begin their search closer to town on roads such as Massetts Road. Well within walking distance to the town centre, a 4-bedroom family home here starts from £375,000.
