Kids back to school? Time to find your dream home in Surrey!

Ah, the wonderful school holidays; six weeks, or eight in some cases, can be a great time for families, spending quality time together, honing new skills in summer clubs, planning and taking trips and for children it’s a time to relax and recuperate from a long academic year.

However... the new academic year is now upon us so it’s time to dust off your plans for the bigger picture and get on with finding your new home!

Although the holidays can feel quite daunting, those six or eight weeks often fly by with a combination of day trips, summer holidays, visiting family and friends and often trying to squeeze in work or juggling childcare.

Right: Located on The Street, The Old Bakery in the hear of Capel village, Dorking is a three bedroom home, beautifully refurbished with a stunning interior and large, spacious rooms that lend themselves to a sociable family life. Guide price £630,000. 

It can most definitely mean you take your eye off the ball in terms of major plans for your family, including selling your home or finding a new property. There are just not enough hours in the day!

The small matter of getting on with anything else in the holidays often falls by the wayside during the summer holidays, and if you’ve been thinking of a house move chances are those plans have been on hold since early July.

Fear not! The little ones are back this month, giving you time to consider your options – without having to answer one hundred questions a minute!

Above: Kiln Platt House on Parkgate Road, Newdigate, Dorking is a superbly designed five bedroom family home, with all of the space your growing brood could need. Built to a high specification, the design maximises the use of space to embrace modern day living. With over an acre of land, there's plenty of room for everyone. Guide price £1,495,000.

Once they return to school you may find those extra few hours a day feel like you’ve been given a whole extra day to organise and manage family life.

Time to grab a coffee, put your feet up, pick up your iPad and take a look through some properties that could be perfect for you and your family for the next summer holidays!
