Staplehurst offers the modern amenities of a large
village with the heritage and countryside appeal
of rural Kentish living. Situated in the Weald of
Kent, this area stretching between the North and
South Downs is known as the Garden of England
with its bounty of fresh produce, scenic parks and
woodlands. The surrounding views are a feast for the
eyes all year round as they change with the seasons.
A former Roman road, believed to once join
Rochester to Hastings, connects Staplehurst to its
neighbouring towns of Cranbrook and Maidstone.
By rail, it’s only 51 minutes into London Bridge for
access straight to the heart of the capital. And if
Europe is your destination, Ashford International
station is only 22 minutes away by train. Whitstable,
Margate and other coastal towns are also within
reach, some in under an hour by car. Staplehurst
really is well placed to keep you connected to
wherever you want to go.
For growing families, Staplehurst offers a wide
choice in education. Woodford Park sits within
the Cranbrook School catchment area and has
Sutton Valence School and Bethany School nearby
for choices in independent education. Maidstone
also has a wide selection of established grammar
schools and comprehensive schools and many of the
neighbouring villages have excellent primary and
nursery schools.
Recreational pastimes are plentiful with the local area
offering a choice in golf courses, walking and cycling
routes, leisure and outdoor pursuits. Many Kent
attractions and landmarks including Leeds Castle,
Bedgebury Forest and Sissinghurst Castle are located
only a short drive away. The nearby county town of
Maidstone has a broad choice of shops, restaurants
and leisure facilities. In the surrounding areas, you’ll
find a wonderful selection of pubs and restaurants
serving local food and drinks. Farm shops, vineyards
and even a gin distillery allow you to buy directly
from growers and producers and many of the local
villages regularly host farmers markets and craft fairs
in their high streets or market squares for a taste of
Kent’s local produce and thriving creative scene.
