The Ashford, Kent / Warehorne area
The Kent village where this holiday home is situated is on the very edge of Romney Marsh which has wonderful walks over the Marshes, woods and along the historic Royal Military Canal. The property itself is on a private farm, with its own old traditional orchard and private wood land, full of bluebells and wild orchids in spring. The renowned Saxon Shore Line Walk is within 200 metres of this self-catering holiday home in Kent.
Why not take advantage of the direct access to this private land and woods surrounding the property, the ideal place to walk off your Christmas dinner or, on a spring or summer break, perhaps take a picnic hamper filled with locally produced goods and wine or champagne from the Chapel Down vineyard that the owner has supplied and lay back underneath the trees and take in the smells and sounds of the glorious Kentish countryside.
Hamstreet, the nearest neighbouring village (4 minutes drive) offers the local village shop, newsagents who will deliver newspapers, including foreign newspapers, a family-run Indian restaurant as well as a family-run pub, which also offers take-away fish and chips. If you fancy exploring the Kent countryside by bike, the local bicycle shop hires adults’ and children’s bikes and offers a repair service.
Hamstreet is situated approximately 8 miles from Ashford International and is ideal for the more adventurous amongst us who would like to go a little further afield whilst on holiday. The mainline station in the village takes you to Ashford within minutes where you can jump on the high speed line and be in London in 37 minutes. There are also excellent road links to the M20 (within 15 minutes) and the coast.
The renowned smugglers’ town of Rye, in neighbouring East Sussex, is within fifteen minutes, either by car or by train, with its winding narrow streets, antique shops and restaurants and the picturesque market town of Tenterden is within 10 minutes’ drive.
