Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Herne Bay has many attractions and amenities that contribute to it being a lovely place to live, not least of course its shingle beach, promenade with traditional gardens, seaside shops and amusement arcades, and its pier. Sticking with the coast, Hampton, Swalecliffe, Tankerton, and Whitstable beaches can all be reached in around 10 minutes by car, while Reculver Beach is around 15 minutes' drive away. Reculver village is notable as the setting for a Roman fort, then a monastery on the same site and built in the 7th century. The remaining medieval towers, added in the 12th century, remain today as a local landmark.

Cultural destinations include Herne Bay Little Theatre, which stages several shows each year, and The King's Hall, which offers a comprehensive programme of comedy, live music and musical theatre. The small and independent Kavanagh Cinema is less than 10 minutes' drive from Oxenden Park and is a popular alternative to the more usual modern multiplexes. Just over the road from the cinema, the quirky Seaside Museum in the town centre, presents a regularly changing series of exhibitions from local and national artists, as well as photography collections, landscape paintings and family-friendly events.

Outdoor attractions include Herne Bay Memorial Park, which has a children's play area, lake, tennis courts, a grassed games area, formal and sensory gardens, and Reculver Country Park, which is a site of special scientific interest and home to a variety of wildlife.

The town has active hockey, football, bowls and cricket clubs; there's a swimming pool, gym, dance and fitness studios at Herons Leisure Centre, and a roller skating rink at the Bay Sports Arena. Rowing and sailing are offered by Herne Bay Amateur Rowing Club and Herne Bay Sailing Club, while the Herne Bay Paddle Co provides paddle boarding lessons.

Margate, that quintessential English seaside town, is around 30 minutes by car from the development. Its sandy beaches, Dreamland Amusement Park, ice cream, fish and chip shops, prom and splendid sea views continue to attract tourists and is well worth a visit.

Local Shopping

High Street lies at the heart of Herne Bay and together with Mortimer Street and William Street, makes up the main shopping area. All are lined with independent retailers, boutiques and specialist stores, as well as a few familiar names, and all are just a short walk from the beach. A selection of niche stores can also be found on the pier, and a weekly market takes place every Saturday on Mortimer Street. For local produce and crafts, a farmers' market is held monthly in Wimereux Square, off William Street.

Beyond Herne Bay, Canterbury is a favourite with shoppers from across the region, drawn by its great selection of chain and department stores, boutiques and specialist shops. It's also a must-see for tourists, captivated by the medieval architecture and famous buildings of this historic city. The main retail areas here include Whitefriars outdoor mall, Marlowe Arcade, High Street, Longmarket and The King's Mile. The latter comprises a number of streets and is close to the cathedral, it's the independent district and the place to find inspiring and quirky gifts, clothing, food and art.

Whitstable (around 10 minutes' drive away) and Margate (around 30 minutes' drive away) are also popular shopping destinations. Both are on the coast so are also famous for their beaches, seafood and traditional seaside atmosphere. Westwood Cross shopping centre, near Broadstairs, can be reached in around 25 minutes by car and boasts an array of high-street stores, eateries and a multi-screen cinema.

Education

A number of well-regarded schools can be found in the local area. For younger children, these include Briary Primary - which is just a few minutes walk from the development - and Hampton Primary School, which is 20 minutes' walk away.

About Developer

A REPUTATION YOU CAN RELY ON

Over 75 years of great homes and great service


When it comes to buying your new home it is reassuring to know that you are dealing with one of the most successful companies in the country, with a reputation built on designing and creating fine houses and apartments nationwide backed up with one of the industryís best after-care services.

In 1946 John and Russell Bell, newly demobbed, joined their father John T. Bell in a small family owned housebuilding business in Newcastle upon Tyne. From the very beginning John T. Bell & Sons, as the new company was called, were determined to break the mould. In the early 1950s Kenneth Bell joined his brothers in the company and new approaches to design layout and finishes were developed. In 1963 John T. Bell & Sons became part of the public corporate scene and the name Bellway evolved.

Continuing growth

Today Bellway is one of Britainís largest house building companies and is continuing to grow throughout the country. Since its formation, Bellway has built and sold over 100,000 homes catering for first time buyers to more seasoned home buyers and their families. The Groupís rapid growth has turned Bellway into a multi-million pound company, employing over 2,000 people directly and many more sub-contractors. From its original base in Newcastle upon Tyne the Group has expanded in to all regions of the country and is now poised for further growth.

Our homes are designed, built and marketed by local teams operating from regional offices managed and staffed by local people. This allows the company to stay close to its customers and take key decisions about design, build, materials, planning and marketing in response to local and not national demands. A simple point, but one which we believe distinguishes Bellway.
