The great outdoors is right on your doorstep at Water’s Edge. For example, the largest freshwater lake in Hampshire, Fleet Pond, is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest and less than 5 miles away. You can also enjoy walking or cycling down the towpath of Basingstoke Canal which runs through the town. The canal stretches 31 miles, with 29 working locks and over a dozen waterside pubs to explore.
To keep you entertained, there are a number of highly rated pubs, bars and restaurants in Mytchett and the surrounding area, including The Kingfisher on the Quay - a waterside restaurant just a stone’s throw away. Bustling Guildford is also nearby, with plenty of buzzing watering holes and delicious restaurants to choose from.
The Meads Shopping centre provides a wide range of shops, from clothing to groceries. If you’re looking for some serious retail therapy, in Guildford designer brands, high street favourites and independent boutiques rub shoulders on its cobbled streets.
In addition to the many walking and cycling routes surrounding Water’s Edge, residents can enjoy local gyms, tennis clubs and golf courses. There’s even a swimming lake within walking distance for those willing to brave the water in the British summer.
