Sevenoaks is a comfortable corner of Kent just 25 minutes from London, boasting a quaint character and enchanting outdoor spaces. With a whole host of amenities along with the vast acres of parks and open space, there’s no question why Sevenoaks is ranked as one of the best places to live in the UK and is quickly taking the property market by storm.
Countryside calm, city charm
With views of dew-kissed parks on early mornings and glass-clear waterways tickled by weeping willows, Sevenoaks is romantic if not only for its natural beauty. Knole Park is a Sevenoaks landscape typical of all the charms of the Kent countryside. Feeling a lifetime away from the big city, Sevenoaks is an escape with everything you could need right there. Home to its very own town centre with a slightly different pace of life, shopping, food and leisure in the centre of Sevenoaks is something of a laidback and pleasurable excursion. With all your favourite high street stores, there's something about the tudoresque architecture that infuses culture and curiosity. And with its number of independent cafes and restaurants this town has certainly carved out its own identity in a perfect blend of rural and urban life.
Family Friendly in all the Best Ways
One thing Sevenoaks delivers on is what it offers the newest generation of residents. Sevenoaks is home to some world class schools including one of the oldest non-denominational schools in the United Kingdom, the historic Sevenoaks School. When it comes to family downtime, Sevenoaks is also home to the Eagle heights Wildlife reserve for some big bird attractions and the Kent Wildlife Trust decorated in lakes, ponds and waterways for blissful walks along the banks. Chartwell Stately Home is also a magnificent day out, home to Winston Churchill and enveloped in ornate gardens and breathtaking scenery, it's no surprise this was an inspiration for many novelists and poets who visited.
