what are the nicest villages /hamlets - want to be as rural as possible? Does the price vary across the area? Dont need schools or trains. Seen anything nice in the £1m bracket?

Nah, everything in the £1m bracket is a dog's dinner. If you want something nice you'll have to spend 3 or 4 mill.

It's a travesty, really.

dont suggest somewhere that gets clogged with visitors at the weekend

Try living in a ditch - you avoid all the hustle and bustle of a hamlet and it'll be much more 'authentic'.

The Surrey Hills are just one big tourist attraction though. Not sure there is anywhere you would escape the crowds.

seen this -- like the house but don't know the area -- any thoughts?

I am currently in the Chiltern Hills - def not clogged with tourists...maybe I will just stay where I am and endure the coommute

This sort of thing?

Oh God, I couldn't live in a hole like that. I agree with Hanky- you need to seriously rethink your budget. Have you looked down the back of the sofa? I can usually grub up a couple of mill that way.

Bombay -- love the setting - not sure about the western theme kitchen!

Gobby - first one is absolutely stunning - really love you know the villages - is this one quiet or mobbed?....Is it all the SW London crew on day trips that is the problem?

I don't think touristy is an issue. It's near where my grandparents lived so didn't see it at all times but don't think it's that busy. Quite rural.

By the looks it's only cricket Sundays that get crowded.
