The property is excellently located within this sought after rural village set at the heart of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; over which there is a wealth of walks, bridle paths and cycle routes. The village boasts its own Public House/Restaurant, Community Hall and Cricket Pitch. On its outskirts and within easy walking distance will be found the excellent Primary School of Stelling Minnis. This neighbouring village has a further Public House plus a General Stores; whilst other villages in the vicinity cater well for one's every day needs.
The family were determined to move to the village so they and their children would benefit from the popular primary school, the country walks and local community, together with the thriving village public house/restaurant.
