Why live in Shere?

Because this Surrey village, which looks like a film set – and has been the location for many – is an idyllic location. The quaint, olde-worlde high street features mainly 16th and 17th-century timber-framed houses and has a small village supermarket, gift shop, popular café, the Dabbling Duck, and ice-cream parlour. The River Tillingbourne runs through the village and is a popular spot for feeding the ducks. The beautiful 12th-century St James Church in the centre of the village is approached up a cobbled lane, through a lychgate designed by renowned local architect Edwin Lutyens in 1902.

There are two pubs, The White Horse and The Bray on Shere Lane, plus a restaurant called Kinghams, serving quality modern British cuisine. Shere is surrounded by beautiful Surrey countryside, so is very popular with walkers.


Buses run through Shere to Guildford and Horsham via Dorking. Gomshall Station offers connecting services to London Waterloo via Guildford or to London Victoria via Dorking.


Shere has an infant school and nursery. There are many state and private schools in nearby Guildford.

Customers Say


Roger Coupe is an extremely professional estate agent. We worked with James (and Edward) who were just fantastic. James handled our house purchase with such reassurance that we knew we were in safe hands. The communication was great and responsive throughout. Any concerns or questions were dealt with swiftly. I would have no hesitate in recommending Roger Coupe as the 'go to' estate agent, whether you are purchasing or selling. Thank you James!

James Britton and his team provided friendly, professional and expert advice. Highly recommended if you are buying or selling in the Cranleigh area.

Mark Rolfe


The team at Roger Coupe were fantastic. James was notably first-class, doing all that he could to ensure our tricky chain moved in the right direction. If we ever came to buy or sell again, we wouldn't look elsewhere but Roger Coupe.

Ed Wyeth


I highly recommend Roger Coupe, as a thoroughly excellent estate agent. They were responsive, polite and friendly throughout our house purchase saga, and frankly we felt very supported and in good hands! Thank you so much to Edward and the whole team.

Helen Morgan


Edward and team were great in helping us secure our new property and help us move from offer to exchange in 6 weeks. Always on hand to push the seller and their solicitor to speed up the process. Thank-you.
