Cobham is one of those charming historic villages with lots of attractive red brick buildings, several independent shops, bars and restaurants. On the banks of the River Mole, it’s gained a reputation as the Beverley Hills of Britain due to the rich and famous who have taken up residence here and can often be spotted pulling up in their prestigious motors. At the centre of the village is a 12th century church and along the river is Cobham Mill, the only surviving fully working watermill in Surrey. Once a month there’s a farmers’ market, nearby is Painshill with its glorious 18th century landscaped gardens. Good places to eat are The Ivy Cobham Brasserie or The Bear if you prefer pubs.
