Outstanding views overlooking the Alkham valley through to the sea, nestling on the top of the north downs, ideal for hikers and dog walkers. There is plenty of off road parking and a private pretty garden surrounds the property. We are ideally situated just 5 mins from the port of Dover and 2 mins from the euro tunnel, enabling easy access to the continent. We are also on the main bus route. Enjoy a day trip to Calais or view the iconic white cliffs from the English Channel. Canterbury is only 25 minutes drive and Hythe with its antique shops and excellent fish and chips is 15 minutes away. There are discounted designer ranges at De Bradelei Wharf in Dover or Macarthur Glen in Ashford which also makes for a great day out. Don’t miss Dover castle and for hiking and biking, head towards Folkestone and the Leas Promenade. There is a walkway running alongside the property with great dog walks. Shops, pubs and restaurants are only 200 yards away and cater for all tastes and palates.
