Considering a move to the ancient market town of East Grinstead or one of its picturesque surrounding villages such as Lingfield, Dormansland, Felbridge, Ashurst Wood, Forest Row?
You’ll certainly not regret it, and there's so much to do in and around this beautiful medieval market town.
A walk down East Grinstead’s medieval High Street is like stepping back in time with its continuous run of 14th-century timber-framed buildings, one of the longest and most stunning in England. Wherever you venture around this traditional market town, you’ll soon discover an amazing collection of historic buildings, including the magnificent and dominating St Swithun’s Church.
East Grinstead has retained its individual and quirky independent shops, offering a fabulous range of traditionally crafted goods and locally produced fare. You can even enjoy a hearty meal and local ale where many a smuggler of bygone days took refuge in one of the friendly and hospitable coaching inns.
So, if you’re looking for something that’s not on the average high street, you certainly need to visit East Grinstead High Street.
The Greenwich Meridian line runs through the eastern side of East Grinstead town and is marked out by terracotta marker stones along its tree-lined route through the grounds of East Court mansion, the home of the Town Council, so visitors to the town can literally straddle both east and west at the same time.
While you’re there, read the plaque and touch the 11.5 tonnes of ironstone Millenium Stone to add your mark to the stone’s future history.
Step outside of the town centre and you are straight into the glorious Ashdown Forest and High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). AA Milne lived on the edge of Ashdown Forest and The Hundred Acre Wood of the Winnie the Pooh stories was based on the forest’s Five Hundred Acre Wood.
As well as the international airport Gatwick, East Grinstead has excellent road and rail transport links.
The trainline runs from East Grinstead into Central London in around one hour, and on route there's East Croydon station, with access to the South, including Brighton, Portsmouth, Southampton and Chichester.
If you like your mode of travel to be more scenic and at a more leisurely pace, you could always hop on the Bluebell Railway and go by steam train to Sheffield Park via Horsted Keynes and Kingscote.
The M23, A23 and M25 are just a short drive away for quick direct access to London, Brighton and the South, South East.
With 9 primary schools in East Grinstead alone, and many more in the adjoining villages, parents are spoiled for choice when comes to educating their younger children.
There are 2 large secondary schools with 6th forms in the town which are rated “good” serving the town and its surrounding villages.
A large proportion of East Grinstead’s housing stock is mature, traditional property, many of which are individual and situated on large plots along its tree lined leafy streets.
There are several new build and redeveloped properties on the outskirts of East Grinstead, mostly comprising of luxury apartments and retirement villages, plus a small percentage of family sized dwellings.
The surrounding villages have a seen more affordable new home development sites spring up over recent years but the town itself has been keen to retain its character so limited the development of new homes within its centre.

Clarendons are a refreshing change in lettings market. Clarendons focus on providing service rather than selling their services, working hard to forge good relationships with Landlords and Tenants which makes everything run smoothly. As a landlord Clarendons have saved me time and helped me to provide my tenants with a better service. Clarendon's fees to both the Landlord and Tenant are realistic and reasonable. Thank you.

We have rented through Clarendons for over a year now. Alex and the rest of the team have been great and very responsive if any issues have arisen. I wouldn't hesitate recommending them to anyone in Reigate or the surrounding areas.

Alex was instrumental in ensuring our unit was handed over to us smoothly and was in a rentable condition in the shortest time possible. He is very knowledgeable and experienced with the Croydon and surrounding markets as demonstrated in his timely and wise advice to us. Always attentive and responsive, it was a breeze to do business with him and his firm and I rest easy knowing he is available to assist with any concerns that might pop up. Great job!
