Banstead is situated on the northern edge of the North Downs, surrounded by the quaint villages of Woodmansterne and Chipstead and open countryside.
There has been a settlement at Banstead for the last thousand years, with mentions in the Domesday Book. In the past, the village was well known for its farming, the quality of its wool, horse racing on Banstead Downs, and as a health spa to revitalise and rejuvenate – in the 17th century London doctors often prescribed a holiday in Banstead to patients due to its ‘wholesome air’.
