Substantial village houses are seldom available and Well Farm enjoys remarkable privacy whilst being at the very heart of Banstead Village. This location is within a short walk of a choice of excellent schools; St Anne's, Banstead First and Middle and The Priory Prep and the adjacent Old Barn pre-school Nursery. The High Street offers diverse shopping as well as Waitrose Supermarket and M&S Simply Food and the village has numerous cafes, a variety of restaurants, the Woolpack pub and the nearby Mint gastro-pub. There are rail services at Banstead and nearby Chipstead stations and faster services from Sutton or Epsom and the A217 provides arterial road access to London and to the M25 at Reigate (Junction9). This part of the Surrey Downs has much to offer for sport, leisure and cultural pursuits with theatre and cinema at Reigate, Epsom and Sutton, several local gyms, golf courses and sports clubs and the open spaces of nearby Banstead Downs, Banstead Woods, Park Downs and Epsom Downs offer great walks and cycling, the latter being home to the famous Derby Races. The Lady Neville Park nearby is also home to Banstead Cricket Club.
