The villages of Milford and Witley are set in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and surrounded by National Trust and National Nature Reserve land. Both villages have extensive Conservation Areas, Tudor buildings and cottages designed by Lutyens. Witley’s medieval church has unusual wall paintings dating back to 1120.
Between them, the two villages have four pubs and restaurants as well as Secretts of Milford, a well-stocked farm shop selling own-grown fruit and veg and local produce, plus a boutique gift store and tempting cafe.
