Why move to Longfield?

Longfield (Da3) is a village type area set between the A2 and M20, a few miles outside the M25, and the hub of the local area due to its High Street and Station. It offers Primary and Secondary schools, and an array of amenities including a Waitrose with ample parking.

Beyond Longfield we cover a number of other neighboring local villages and semi rural locations.

Hartley (Da3) is adjacent to Longfield and benefits from two popular schools, Hartley Country Club, several local shops and a golf club. This affluent area offers real mix of property but including many larger individual homes.

 

New Barn

The sleepy New Barn (Da3), also adjacent to Longfield in contrast has no central amenities, but residents enjoy the peaceful streets, many without street lights! It boasts an array of attractive mid-sized and larger individual homes set within a couple of miles of the A2 and surrounded by countryside.

 

Southfleet

Southfleet (Da13) is a small traditional rural village with its central pub, church and school and extremely convenient for the A2 and Bluewater, ideal for those looking for rural living without being remote.

 

Fawkham

Fawkham (DA3) is a tiny traditional village best know for being the home of Brands Hatch Racing Circuit and offers a small school, local pub, golf club and benefits from the facilities at the nearby Brands Hatch Hotel.

 

Ash

Ash (TN15) is a less densely populated rural area but still offers a golf club and pub whilst nested away directly between the A2 and M20 consisting of mainly unique homes, many with land.

 

New Ash Green

New Ash Green (DA3) is a more modern day village built circa 1960's, with some Span houses, central shopping parade and school. A mix of homes from flats upwards means its ideal for first/second time buyers looking for an affordable leafy escape outside of London.

 

Bean

To the North East is Bean (DA2), a village within close proximity of Bluewater and the A2, with a local pub, convenience store, school and Beacon Wood Country Park. It offers opportunities for first time buyers and is not far from the amenities in Dartford.

 

Longfield Hill

Longfields smaller rural sibling is Longfield Hill which is set between Longfield and Meopham. It is a tiny village surrounded by countryside and offering just a central pub, garage and allotments.

 

Meopham

To the east we then have the larger village Meopham, an affluent semi rural area with the nearly 8 mile long Wrotham Road running through it, connecting it to the A2 and M20. It offers several schools, two small shopping parades, a cricket green, several gastropubs and Meopham Station (one stop further out than Longfield).

It is bordered by countryside, similar to its Wrotham Road neighbour Culverstone Green (DA13), to the south, which has its own primary school and a local convenience store, and with country lanes leading away from it to its remote outskirts On the outskirts of Meopham are various tiny attractive villages such as Sole Street and Harvel, for those looking to be well away from main routes whilst not being completely remote.

 

Istead Rise

The hilly Istead Rise (DA13) to the north of Meopham and Wrotham Road is a large modern village type area with its own central parade of shops, school and ideal for A2 access. Homes at the top of the hill offer fabulous views over surrounding countryside.

 

Vigo

At the foot of Wrotham Road is the leafy Vigo (DA13), a modern circa 1960's village with central shopping parade and school, located on the edge of the North Downs. It offers the wonderful Trosley Country Park with views towards the Maidstone area.

All the locations we cover offer an escape from urban living whilst located within easy reach of transport links, and access back into London. Hence why for many years it has been a popular destination for those migrating from within the M25.
