The eight townhouses and six apartments at Catherine’s Walk are located on Chestnut Avenue, a popular residential area around 15 minutes’ walk from the station and town centre.  The setting is idyllic, just a short stroll from the River Wey and the green spaces of Shalford Park. Set against a backdrop of mature trees, the homes are arranged around a private landscaped courtyard.

Arranged over three storeys, the superb townhouses are light and bright with an extensive kitchen/family room opening on to a rear garden, and a separate living room. A magnificent master bedroom occupies the entire top floor and includes, together with the second bedroom, an en suite bath/shower room and dressing area. Both bedrooms feature a balcony.

Extending to more than 1,100 sq. ft., the apartments offer an amazing amount of space, with a contemporary open-plan living area opening on to a balcony and two generously-sized bedrooms, each with an en suite bath/shower room.

Two parking spaces are provided for each home.

Catherine’s Walk will be released for sale in spring 2016; prices are expected to start in the region of £700,000 for a two-bedroom apartment and £1.1 million for a three-bedroom townhouse.

Happy New Year from the PHM team!

We hope you all had a restful Christmas break! The whole team here had a fantastic time with family and friends – some even managing to escape for some winter sun in warmer climates such as Australia and Borneo – the lucky things!

However, we are all very much looking forward to what the 2016 will bring, especially as we have a host of new clients; we start the year welcoming Lendlease, Fetcham Park, Drawing and Talking and Chantries.

Lendlease is a multinational property and infrastructure company delivering state the art buildings and infrastructure, alongside creating vibrant residential communities, workplaces and retail destinations and we are pleased to be assisting them with a host of awards for 2016, which includes both corporate and development specific entries.

We’re also very excited to be working with Fetcham Park, an award-winning wedding venue in Leatherhead, Surrey – as although not typical of our usual clientele it’s still very much property-related, especially with the PR work they’d like us to do to help promote the elegant and modern, refurbished offices in the Grade II* listed house.

Drawing and Talking, is a safe and therapeutic method of working with children who have underlying emotional difficulties and is an interesting and worthwhile project for us all to get stuck into and help promote.

Last but certainly not least, Chantries, an independent estate agent in Guildford is passionate about selling the finest properties in Guildford, Surrey and the surrounding area and we’re looking forward to helping this fantastic local team with our PR knowledge.

If that isn’t enough, we also can’t wait to show you our new website which is currently under construction!

We hope your first week back has been nice and busy too, but if it hasn’t and you’re looking to implement a new streamlined PR strategy than why not get in touch with us today on 01483 561119.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

From all of us at PHM, we’d like to say thank you to all our clients and suppliers for another fantastic year. We’re looking forward to seeing what 2016 may bring!



The word marriage has a nice ring to it!

Putting aside PR for one moment – this is an extra special blog post to announce that our managing director, Nikki Ackerley, married her other half, Ian Gibbon, in a truly wonderful ceremony at the historical and rather magical Loseley Park, near Guildford, at the weekend.

Being so close to Christmas, it really was an amazing atmosphere, and the couple had one of the best days of their lives, which you can probably tell from the smiles on their faces in the photo!

Thankfully, the wedding day went without a hitch, except for the days leading up to the ceremony when a lost dress caused quite a bit of drama! No it wasn’t the wedding dress but another emerald green number, also by designer to the stars Suzannah, which Nikki had intended to wear at a celebratory lunch the day after the wedding.

Arriving back at the office after her final dress fitting just three days before the wedding, she realised that the ‘day after’ dress had disappeared somehow on the way. Thankfully, after a couple of rough nights bearing the elements, the dress turned up a few days later in good condition, in an alleyway near PHM HQ, in what can only be described as a miracle! The full story has been told by Nikki in her editors page of The Guildford Magazine in addition to a list of thanks to all the stupendous suppliers who did a sterling job leading up to and on the couple’s special day.

Congratulations again Nikki and Ian. Love from all at PHM x
