Area Information: Southborough/Bidborough border, Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Southborough is just a couple of miles outside the historic spa town of Tunbridge Wells. It sits immediately to the north of Tunbridge Wells and just south of Tonbridge, with the A26 passing through it. Southborough's location allows easy access to the A21 which leads to the M25.

Southborough Common, situated near to the property, is a conservation area where cricket has been played for more than 200 years. Southborough Cricket Club is still very much a vibrant community club.

If you are a runner or casual walker, the woodland area of the Southborough Common, which is near the property, is a very beautiful space. It is nestled behind St. Peters Church, and it is a delightful broadleaf woodland featuring ancient and young trees sloping down to a stream.

Birch Wood, is in the valley between Southborough and Bidborough. With its lovely lake, duck house, and array of pathways and bridges meandering through 17 acres, this wood is a haven for wildlife and a perfect place for local residents to enjoy the countryside.

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 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 area benefits from open countryside and sprawling woodland on its doorstep, but it is also popular with commuters being only 2.4 miles from Tonbridge Station with its fast and frequent access into central London in 44 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. There is also a luxury coach service, which drops and collects a short walk from the property, straight to Canary Wharf, the City, Embankment, and other central London destinations. It is half the cost of rail travel enabling you to slumber or work using its Wi-Fi connectivity as you travel.

Excellent local independent primary schools such as The Schools at Somerhill and Hilden Grange Primary sit alongside the highly regarded Bidborough, and Southborough primary schools and the sought-after girls' and boys' secondary grammar schools are also nearby. With several additional exceptional state secondary schools in its borough and the renowned Tonbridge and Sevenoaks Schools on its doorstep, parents are definitely spoilt for choice.

Southborough Hub with its new medical centre, library, theatre/hall, coffee shop, community rooms, and town council offices, together with retail space is within walking distance of the property. The Yew Tree and Ridgewaye Playing Fields are also close by, with open green spaces for walking and recreational sport.

Southborough enjoys many local independent shops with an award winning hairdressers, The Gallery, and restaurant Tallow, which has just been named The Good Food Guide's Best UK Local Restaurant 2023 – both are a short walk away. With additional convenience stores, a baker, a butcher, and pubs such as The Hand & Sceptre and The Imperial nearby, all your local needs are met.

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.
