“We have loved living here over the past 12 years but feel it is now time to downsize. Although we live in the countryside, we are only a short distance from the historic city of Canterbury with its UNESCO Heritage site buildings, high street stores, individual shops, pubs and restaurants. The city is also home to excellent grammar and first class private schools as well as three universities. If you need to commute to London or want to go on the Eurostar to the Continent we are not far from Ashford where the high speed train will whisk you to St Pancras in just over half an hour. Indeed we can be in the City door to door in just over an hour. The Channel Tunnel and Dover are also easily accessible if you want to take the car abroad.

There is a shop and post office in nearby Stelling Minnis for any immediate needs as well as a friendly village pub and an historic windmill. There is a good choice of primary schools with the Bodsham Primary school rated as Outstanding by Ofsted also within the vicinity. You can enjoy walking on the Minnis or strolling towards Bodsham, Hastlingleigh and Brabourne to some of the lovely country pubs in the vicinity. There are excellent places for cycling as well as riding at the Bursted Manor Riding Centre or hacking through the nearby Lyminge Forest. Golfing enthusiasts can play at the nearby Roundwood Hall Golf Club or go further afield to Etchinghill or Sene Valley in Hythe”.
