Bidborough is an idyllic and pretty village in the borough of Tunbridge Wells, lying to the north of Tunbridge Wells town centre and to the south of Tonbridge town centre.
It has an active community with an historic 11th Century church, a local primary school which is ranked by Ofsted as good, a petrol station, a local convenience store and a popular recently and extensively refurbished village pub, the `Kentish Hare`.
Parish sports facilities are good, and the village boasts a tennis court, a bowls green and two recreation ground areas, which are available for cricket and five-a-side football.
The village benefits from open countryside and sprawling woodland on its doorstep but it is also popular with commuters being only 2.5 miles from Tonbridge Station with its fast and frequent access into central London in 30 minutes. It is also close to Gatwick Airport and with the A21 less than 2 miles away with access onto the M25 it provides quick road access into London too.
Excellent local independent primary schools such as The Schools at Somerhill and Hilden Grange Primary sit alongside the highly regarded village primary and the sought after girls` and boys` secondary grammar schools are also nearby. With a number of additional exceptional state secondary schools in its borough and the renowned Tonbridge and Sevenoaks Schools on its doorstep, parents are definitely spoilt for choice.
The more extensive shopping facilities in both Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells are nearby as is Tunbridge Wells` historic Pantiles which offers a vibrant al fresco café culture with independent boutiques stretching up to the old High Street.
