Milford

Archant

Milford is perhaps best known as the home of Secretts Farm Shop and some of Surrey’s best craftspeople

Notable local

Local resident Penelope Keith served as High Sheriff of Surrey from 2002-2003. At the time, it meant the actress was only the third woman ever to hold the post since the role was created over 1,000 years ago. A patron of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, she says that two of her favourite views in our county are at Holmbury Hill at Holmbury St Mary and Stag Hill overlooking Guildford.

Crafts in focus

Surrey Guild of Craftsmen members are selected professional craftsmen and designer makers. They have their co-operative gallery/shop in Milford village and host regular events at the gallery, as well as around the county, showcasing the group’s work.

In the movies

Part of Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood film starring Russell Crowe was shot at Elstead’s Oxenford Grange, home of the Baker family, long-established farmers. Meanwhile, the James Bond series also visited the nearby Hankley Common for Skyfall, with the MOD land being transformed into Bond’s childhood home in Scotland - mountains added later.

Visit...

Secretts, a third generation family business that supplies a number of our county’s pubs and restaurants with the very best fresh produce, moved to the present site of Hurst Farm in 1937. As well as a well stocked farm shop, cafe and regular events, they host the award-winning Milford farmers’ market.

Eat at...

A few minutes drive away in Thursley, The Three Horseshoes pub (01252 703268) is a former winner of dining pub of the year.

Drink at...

On Portsmouth Road, the The Refectory pub (01483 413820) has plenty of real ales and an enviable selection of whiskies.

Stay at...

At Innkeeper’s Lodge (0845 112 6102) in Godalming.

Getting there...

Found just off the A3 by car. Milford Station is a short walk from the centre and in easy reach of Guildford.
