Ashtead is a town with plenty of history, evidenced in the medieval cottages, ancient tiny town, Roman villa remains and references in the Domesday Book and Pepy's Diary. Today it’s a quiet, attractive commuter suburb next to Leatherhead and Epsom. The houses are beautiful and the roads are lined with chestnut trees. As a London commuter town, it also has excellent amenities, including a well-regarded independent shopping centre. You'll discover some great pubs, bars and restaurants in Ashtead, and you can walk off a lazy Sunday lunch on the pretty common, or head out to the rolling countryside beyond the town borders.
