Woodhill Lane, Shamley Green, Guildford, GU5 | Tanyard Farm is Richard Branson's old family home

4th March 2021
A wonderful four double bedroom family house nestling in around 1.4 acres that is tucked away in the ever popular village of Shamley Green. Full of beautiful character, the house lends itself to home working and to families of all ages. With an in and out driveway behind substantial electric gates, there is both a good front garden and large rear. Rising to the rear, the garden is laid to lawn and is bordered by gardens, woodland and pastureland. There are several patios and seating areas and other buildings with lapsed planning permissions.
Mentioned within his autobiography, Tanyard Farm is Richard Branson's old family home and has potential to expand as required with lapsed planning for additional buildings in the garden.
This four-bedroom home lends itself well to home working families. Located in the heart of Shamley Green, one of Surrey’s most popular villages, this is an area of pretty, conservation villages benefiting from the stunning Surrey Hills Area of Natural Beauty and is just over 5 miles to the south of Guildford. Tanyards Farm is just a short distance from the cricket green, village store, cafe/delicatessen and two local pubs. Undoubtedly full of interesting history and in such an amazing location, tucked away, yet with a short stroll of 2 local pubs, this house really has it all. Awesome schools on the door step, shopping nearby and London only a short car/train journey away. In his 1998 autobiography, Losing My Virginity, the Virgin founder mentions Tanyard Farm. It was where Branson’s first business ventures began with the planting of a Christmas tree farm within the 1.4 acre grounds. Branson had hoped to sell the trees but hadn’t counted on rabbits eating their way through the plantings before they were anywhere near fully grown.
