Effingham is a beautiful village in Surrey. It is surrounded by beautiful undisturbed natural scenery, which is its most unique selling point. Walks and the admiration of nature are the most popular activities to do here. Due to its small nature, the village is therefore only a short walk from several other larger towns. You can take a tranquil circular walk from Effingham round to the close by National Trust Polesden Lacey house in Great Bookham.
If golf is your sort of thing then Effingham has two nine hole courses set in 264 acers of this stunning country side. It therefore boasts amazing views of the surrounding area and even views of London from a number of its holes. This reminds you that even though you are in the countryside, the big city is not far away.
If you are looking to head into London then the A3, which is a direct link into London, is only a five minute drive away. There is also the M25 which is linked to the A3 at the same junction. Situated between Effingham and the junction is The Black Swan Pub. It is well known to all the locals and is always busy, as it serves great food and has such a warm atmosphere. This gastro pub is an ideal place to go to escape from the ever changing English weather.
