Area Information: Southborough, Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Southborough lies just a couple of miles north outside the historic spa town of Tunbridge Wells with its big retail names and its Georgian colonnade, the Pantiles, offering a vibrant café culture.

It also sits just south of Tonbridge, with the A26 passing through it offering easy access to the A21 which leads to the M25.

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. There are also allotments either side of the fields allowing you to grow your own fruit and vegetables on your doorstep.

Southborough Common, situated towards the property's end of the village, is a conservation area where cricket has been played for more than 200 years.

If you're a runner, dog owner or casual walker, the woodland area of the Southborough Common, nestled behind St. Peters Church, is a very beautiful space. Ancient and young trees slope down to a stream with access to Holden Pond and Bidborough and Speldhurst villages beyond.

Excellent secondary, independent, preparatory, and private schools can be found in both Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge, while Southborough and Bidborough have their very own primary schools. The property is also within the catchment areas for the 6 highly regarded and sought-after Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge Grammar Schools.

Southborough enjoys many local independent shops with an award-winning hairdresser, 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 nearest mainline station to the property is at High Brooms, which has parking, with fast and frequent train services to London Waterloo East, Charing Cross, London Bridge, and Canon Street. The train line at Tonbridge Station is 2.7 miles away and with two lines passing through, it provides on average 34 trains a day from Tonbridge to London Bridge in as little as 40-minute journeys. There is also a luxury coach service, which drops off and collects near to 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.
