Situation

Communications links are excellent: the M20 provides easy access to the motorway network, and Ashford International, the Port of Dover and Channel Tunnel at Folkestone offer regular services to the Continent while nearby Beltring station offers regular services to several central London stations. The immediate area offers a good selection of schooling, including Laddingford St. Mary’s C of E VC Primary School in the village, Yalding, St. Peter and St. Paul C of E VC Primary School and Mascalls Academy, together with grammar schooling in Maidstone, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells.
