A BEAUTIFUL VILLAGE SETTING THAT CONNECTS YOU TO THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
When we had the opportunity to build in Aylesford, we jumped at it. And you’ll soon see why. This is what living in Kent is all about. On the one hand a historic village, community spirit and good local amenities. On the other, a superb location, with easy access to all the county’s attractions, from superb shopping to beautiful countryside.
COUNTRYSIDE LIVING, BUT JUST 25 MILES FROM THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF THE CAPITAL
Sheltered by the North Downs, Aylesford has been a part of Kent’s history since Neolithic times. But it was in the 13th Century that Carmelite monks really put the village on the map by building a monastery. 700 years later it’s still a religious centre and place of pilgrimage.
Today’s village hasn’t lost its old-world charm, but also caters for day-to-day needs, with a convenience store, bank, hairdressers, two pubs and more. There’s a quiet little coffee shop – always good for a cappuccino and something sweet.
