Centrally set in the country town of Alton at the head of the Wey Valley, the apartment arguably could not be any closer to the town's facilities within the Conservation Area of the High Street. There are family and national shops such as Sainsbury's, M & S, Iceland and Boots, open air weekly and specialist/farmers market events, inns, restaurants and hotels, a library, cultural facilities and fitness clubs. Alton also has a further education college, a sports centre, 2 outlying golf courses, a retail park and a Waitrose store beside the station with its direct commuter rail link to Waterloo (minimum journey time 67 minutes). An interesting network of town footpaths also lead to the surrounding rolling countryside.
