SITUATION

Heath Farm House is located on a private, speed and access restricted country lane between Tonbridge and the hamlet of Tudeley. The property enjoys an outlook over its own apple orchard and surrounding countryside, yet is within a mile of the town centre (accessible by foot via the River Medway footpath).

Tonbridge offers comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities including supermarkets, High Street shops, sports centres/gyms/swimming pools/sports clubs and several cafes/restaurants. Tunbridge Wells industrial estate (4.5 miles) has further shopping and recreational facilities including a bowl-plex and Odeon cinema and Royal Tunbridge Wells (5.5 miles) offers an even wider range of retail outlets, boutique shops, bars and restaurants. There are also some excellent golf clubs nearby including Poult Wood and Nizels.

Tonbridge railway station (1.6 miles by road or 1.3 miles by foot) has services to Cannon Street/Charing Cross/London Bridge (Charing Cross from 45 minutes).

There are some lovely walks to be enjoyed across the surrounding countryside and along the river banks, with an excellent selection of gastro and country pubs to stop at along the way.

There is an excellent selection of schools in the area including the Schools at Somerhill (including girls and boys prep schools), Hilden Grange (co-ed) prep school, two girls grammar schools and one boys grammar school plus the highly acclaimed Tonbridge School (boys independent boarding/day school), all in the town. There are further schools in the neighbouring towns of Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells including further grammar schools.

From the M25, exit at junction 5. Continue on the A21 south for just over 10 miles and take the second A26 exit towards Tonbridge.
