The Kennels is located in a coveted location in a dell off The Common and within the conservation area. Chorleywood village is a short walk and the station offers the Metropolitan Line service to Baker Street and The City and the Chiltern Turbo to Marylebone. Chorleywood Common is a country heritage site and is noted for its conservation value. The area is well catered for recreational activities including a nine hole golf course, cricket club and attractive bridleways for the equestrian. There is also a choice of schooling both state and private in the locality.
