About Limpsfield

Set in the leafy Surrey countryside at the foot of the North Downs, Limpsfield borders the town of Oxted and is easily accessible by train (via Oxted station from London Bridge and Victoria) and the M25/A25.

Largely surrounded by Green Belt, this incredibly pretty and partly Medieval village is noted for its variety of architecture, including lovely timber and brick tudor style cottages, imposing manor houses, fields and woodland largely belonging to the Titsey Estate* and National Trust.

The Limpsfield area includes the village of Limpsfield, Limpsfield Chart, Limpsfield Common, Pains Hill, Ichingwood Common and Staffhurst Wood and aside from being a beautiful place to live, has loads on offer for residents and visitors alike.

The village of Limpsfield itself dates back to Saxon times and appears in Domesday Book of 1086 as Limenesfeld.  Much of the village properties and surrounding countryside forms part of the historic Titsey Estate, one of the largest surviving historic estates in Surrey, dating back to the mid-sixteenth century.

With 89 listed buildings of historical interest (20 of which are Mediaeval), beautiful countryside walks, cricket and tennis clubs, playing field, pretty churches, shops, pubs, Limpsfield CofE Infant School, Hazelwood School (independent prep) and Oxted School (Academy), this thriving village community is a great place to both visit and live.

Limpsfield Village regularly gets gold in the RHS Britain in Bloom competition, but all areas of Limpsfield are blooming gorgeous all year round!

*NB while much of the Titsey Estate is in the Limpsfield parish, Titsey Place is in the Titsey Parish.
