The property is set in Ashford, being surrounded in such lush and pristine greenery you would think you were in the middle of the countryside. The manor is in a great position with close rail links to London in just 37 minutes as well as Eurostar to Paris, Bruxelles and more, it is also very easily accessible from junction 10 of the M20. There are very good local amenities including pubs within walking distance, a designer outlet and town centre just minutes away yet still maintaining its own country oasis within the grounds. The rest of Kent is extremely accessible with the coast just 20-30 minutes away at Hythe or Camber to the South, bordering the weald just to the West including the Royal Tunbridge Wells by car or direct train. Canterbury is also just 20 minutes by car or train with some great places to eat and awe-inspiring cathedral, further North is the sea side town of Whitstable with a great high street including the fantastic Cheese Box, oyster bars and harbour.
