Situation

The Forge is situated in the popular village of Wood Street, a peaceful location which enjoys a semi-rural position, just off the northern slope of the Hogs Back within the Green Belt, yet less than 4 miles from Guildford town centre. A village green with the only surviving maypole in Surrey is renowned for community based activities including late spring and summer fairs. Amenities such as a Post Office, General Store and two country pubs, with the locally acclaimed White Hart with its popular restaurant are nearby. Cycle routes and scenic paths allow access to miles of countryside.

For more extensive facilities nearby Guildford offers an eclectic range of High Street and independent shops, along with an abundance of coffee shops, restaurants and entertainment, including The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Electric Theatre and G Live. Outstanding sporting facilities are available at The Guildford Spectrum and Surrey Sports Park. The Christopher Robin Day Nursery is situated within the village, along with several excellent schools in the immediate area, both in the state and private sector which include Wood Street Infant School, Rydes Hill, Aldro, Charterhouse, Prior’s Field, Guildford County, Royal Grammar School, Tormead and Guildford High.
