What the Owner says:

We moved here about five years ago because we love the house and the surroundings. At the time other family members were living with us but that is no longer the case, so we feel it is time to downsize. Although we are in the country there is a bus service that goes through Waltham and there are wonderful places to go for walks. We are not far from the Compasses pub in Crundale, while near Petham there is the Chequers or the excellent Granville pub and restaurant as well as the useful farm shop in Lower Hardres. A good primary school is available in Petham.

We are not far from Canterbury with its historic buildings, high street stores and individual shops, theatres, excellent state and private schools, universities, bars and restaurants as well as the mainline stations and high speed rail to London that can whisk you to London in under an hour. Alternatively, you can drive to Ashford International where the high speed train time to St Pancras is 36 minutes. It is also easy to get to the Channel Tunnel and Dover docks for trips to the Continent.
