The pretty Cinque Port town of Hythe is only ten minutes' drive away and offers a superb selection of independent shops and supermarkets including a Waitrose store; the historic Royal Military Canal also runs through the town of Hythe. Primary and secondary schooling are both within easy reach, Folkestone also offering boys' and girls' grammar schools. The M20 Motorway, Channel Tunnel Terminal and Port of Dover are also easily accessed by car. High-speed rail services are also available from Folkestone West, approximately ten minutes' drive away, this giving access to London St Pancras in just over fifty minutes.
