We chose Grove Cottage to be our abode as it is fantastic to enjoy the nature and walks amongst the rolling landscape and meadows of North Downs and yet be connected via direct trains to reach London Bridge in less than 40minutes.
Our children enjoyed playing outdoors and role playing to Enid Blyton's Famous Five.
We as a family enjoyed having many bonfires in the neck of the woods , listening to the occasional hooting of an owl and seeing the moonlit field across the house.
Knockholt has a very supportive village and parish community, a 700 year old church and an excellent primary school. It also is in the catchment area of some of the top grammar schools with school bus facilities from the village.
