The home itself has a communal lounge to congregate with other residence and enjoy activities, a laundry room and even a guest suite for when family wish to visit.

The location couldn’t be better. Just a short stroll and you are amongst the shops, restaurants, pubs and the High Street with everything you need just on the doors step.

When you fancy a change of scenery why not hop on the train at Canterbury West, again only a stone’s throw away and enjoy a day out at the seaside or even London as the high speed links mean you can be in the capital quicker than you think.
