If you're interested in moving out to Surrey for your retirement, you may wish to take a close look at The Compasses. This park home retreat, which houses rows of wonderful mobile homes and properties for you to view at your leisure, is based close to historic Horsham and lively Guildford. However, the park itself is delightfully serene, situated in the heart of rural Surrey. This means that, while you will have plenty of close links to nearby towns and amenities, it will feel as though you have found your own private spot in the middle of the countryside.
The Compasses is a hugely popular park which is part of the superb McAlister Estates collection. We are always pleased to list properties for sale at this park throughout the year, particularly as it is wonderfully well-kept.

The Compasses is not too far off the beaten track and boasts canalside views as well as access to some of the best woodland and countryside walks in Surrey. Cranleigh, too, isn't too far away, if you'd like to get to know the local community.

If you walk around the park and head out a little beyond it, you'll be able to see stunning panoramas of the greenery and woodland which blanket the local area. It really is a spectacular sight to see. You are certainly going to need to bring a. Camera with you if you choose to move here!
The park is also just outside the quiet local pub, the Three Compasses. Many of the park's residents head here to socialise, meaning that you will even have your own 'local' right on your doorstep!
