Redrow - The Fairways, CT6
Just minutes from the coast that they call the Kent Riviera, The Fairways, Herne Bay will occupy an enviable position when it is completed. Situated on the former golf course, it enjoys a delightful open aspect, while remaining conveniently close to the main arterial route of the A299, leading to the M2 and London beyond.
This exciting new Redrow development allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds, with the charm of a classic seaside town on your doorstep, and the jobs and excellent schools of Canterbury within easy reach. Which makes it the perfect location for our Heritage collection homes, which also blend the best of both worlds, with kerb appeal architecture and modern interiors. Register now for these new homes near Herne Bay and be the first to find out as the project progresses. Remember, you could enjoy the seaside life in these Redrow Homes subject to planning.
As a popular seaside resort, Herne Bay has a lot to offer for your leisure and pleasure, including 2 miles of Blue Flag sand and shale beach, and a promenade complete with arcades, shops, restaurants and cafes. The town is also home to popular Victorian gardens near the seafront. Look out for the ten-day Herne Bay Festival every August for loads of free fun activities for all the family to enjoy. Nearby Reculver Country Park, up on the cliffs, offers a great day out, with Saxon and Roman ruins, the famous twin towers and a host of birds and wildlife.
The location of The Fairways provides an excellent choice of schools within easy reach. Both Herne Bay and the adjoining village of Herne have a three-tier education system, with primary, junior and high schools. First school choices include the Ofsted rated ‘Good’ Hampton Primary Academy, the ‘Outstanding’ Herne CofE Infants and Herne Bay Infants, with junior schools including Herne CofE Juniors and Herne Bay Juniors. Both of these feed the local Herne Bay High School, which is within walking distance of the development. Herne Bay High is a specialist sports college with excellent facilities and is rated ‘Good’ by ofsted.
Herne Bay is rightly proud of its diverse and varied shopping. Alongside the big names on the High Street, you’ll also find well over 100 different independent shops and stores in the small town, including the artisan Pier Retail Village. There is a market in the town every Saturday, with 32 stalls, plus a farmers’ market every first and third Saturday in the United Reformed Church Hall. For a more extensive shopping trip, head to Canterbury, where you’ll find the modern White Friars Shopping Centre with over 70 big name stores, or jump on a train to the shopaholics paradise that is London’s Oxford Street.
