The Gables is set back from the road on the outskirts of the desirable and pretty village of High Halden. It sits only a few minutes from the charming town of Tenterden, is 15 minutes from Ashford International (37 minutes to London) and 25 minutes from the Coast - Rye and Camber. This thriving village offers amenities serving all the usual day-to-day needs as does Tenterden with its bustling tree-lined High Street, shops and supermarkets (including Waitrose and Majestic Wine) being only three miles to the east. The historic market town of Ashford, home to the Eurostar and fast London St Pancras route, is approximately eight miles away.
Leisure activities in the area include riding and walking in the surrounding countryside, golf at a number of interesting courses in the locality including Tenterden, Chart Hills and Rye, and leisure centres at Tenterden and Ashford. For motorists, there is access onto a number of major road routes, including junction 9 of the M20 at Ashford which provides a link to the Kent coast and the M25 orbital motorway network, as well as the international airports of Gatwick and Heathrow. Dover and Folkestone are only 45 minutes away giving access the continent by car.
There is a wide choice of excellent schools nearby, both in the private and state sectors as Kent is still one of the few counties retaining the grammar school system. Mainline rail services include a high speed train service runs between Ashford and London St Pancras in 37 minutes. Eurostar trains are also available from Ashford International. Trains run from Headcorn to London Bridge, Waterloo East, Charing Cross and Cannon Street in about 60 minutes. (All distances and times are approximate).
