Welcome to Abbotswood

Welcome to Abbotswood in Guildford, Surrey, one of Guildford’s premier residential estates.


Abbotswood covers an area of about 50 acres about a mile to the north east of Guildford town centre close to the amenities of Stoke Park and Riverside Park, and within walking distance of the Spectrum Sports Centre.


The estate comprises about 80 detached properties on a mixture of private and public roads developed in the early part of the 20th century as a garden suburb in the Arts and Crafts Style by the notable architect Alfred Claude Burlingham. 


The Estate has recently been designated a Conservation Area, standing out as significant due to the quality of its architecture, urban design and form, and its attractive setting within a mature wooded landscape.


The interests of the Abbotswood residents are looked after by three residents associations, ARA Ltd, ARA North West Spur and ARA Central Crescent. This website is managed and financed by ARA CC with contributions from ARA NWS.
