At the end of a small lane surrounded by trees and gardens, we are only a 5 minute walk from the centre of town and a 12 minute walk to the station with its excellent services to London, Canterbury and the South Coast.
The stylish ground floor studio apartment has its own separate entrance and comprises of a bedsitting room, kitchenette and shower.
The town itself is surrounded by beautiful countryside and only a short distance away there are numerous fascinating historic properties to visit and delightful villages to explore.

Within easy reach also by car are the National Trust properties of Chartwell (Winston Churchill’s delightful country home) and Quebec House (home of General Wolfe) both in Westerham only 6 miles away.
