Living in Cobham

The idyllic Surrey town of Cobham is surrounded by rolling countryside that was once the playground of England’s medieval monarchs. The charming landscape has attracted and inspired artists from the literary and musical worlds, as well as famous architects.

On the River Mole stands Cobham’s best known landmark, Cobham Mill, a red brick water mill that was constructed in 1822. Nearby is St Andrews church which dates from the 12th century and still retains much of its character, including a Grade I listed Norman tower, 16th century brasses and stained glass window. At the other end of the town lies Painshill Park, one of the finest remaining examples of an 18th century English landscape park.

Sports fans will enjoy a visit to Sandown Racecourse, Mercedes-Benz World or Brooklands Motor Museum, whilst Burhill Golf Club, St Georges Hill and The Wisley are a few of the many golf courses that can be found locally.

Cobham has an excellent choice of both private and state schools, attractive residential roads, exclusive estates, and good transport links to London and the nearby motorway network. With local, thriving villages that have a strong community atmosphere, it is easy to see why this area of Surrey is a popular, family friendly place to live, especially for London based commuters.

Property available in Cobham

Whether you are looking for pretty country cottages, apartments, converted mansions, or large luxury new build houses in exclusive estates; Knight Frank can find the property that's right for you.


Cobham is an ancient settlement whose origins can be traced back through Roman times to the Iron Age. Evidence of Roman occupation was found at a bath house excavated at Chatley Farm in 1942. By the time of the Domesday Book, Cobham had moved to its present position and recent research seems to indicate that the Abbot Chertsey, who owned the manor, laid out a planned village in early medieval times.

The River Mole, a tributary of the Thames, almost encircles Cobham and provides a distinctly rural appearance in some places. The river provides a setting for Cobham's best-known landmark: a red brick water mill from the early 19th century, which stands on the site of earlier mills dating back to the middle ages. Recently restored to full working order, the mill is open to the public on certain days.
