The property is situated in a tucked away location between the river and train station. There is a mix of residential homes and light industrial properties in the vicinity although we understand there are planning permissions for residential developments on a couple of the disused units opposite by the river. We love Aylesford nearby village. How can you not? It has a great community spirit, some really interesting historic properties and many places to eat and drink! Our favourite eatery has to be The Hengist; a recently refurbished restaurant, bar and brasserie with a lovely al-fresco terrace. The Chequers is a more traditional pub which serves food and has a wonderful riverside terrace. You can also enjoy a light bite inside or outside at The Village Pantry, or at weekends for a friendly and cosy meal Sherlocks is worth a try, or perhaps a pint and a bite to eat in The Bush, public house. There are lovely riverside walks, walks through the neighbouring farmland and just on the edge of the village is The Friars; an ancient religious house open to the public with a cafe, farmers market and peaceful gardens. There is a small primary school in the centre of the village and further primary school just outside the village, both of which were rated as good in the latest Ofsted report as well as a secondary school in the wider Aylesford area. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to shopping, with an M & S foodstore, Sainsburys and an Aldi just up the road. Commuters are well served with London services (changing at Strood) from Aylesford station and you’ve got access to both the M2 and M20 nearby. If this isn’t enough then the County Town of Maidstone is just 4 miles away and has a multitude of retail, educational and recreational facilities.
