Known as ‘The Garden of England’, Kent offers everything from quaint seaside towns to country villages. Modern seafront homes, barn conversions, red brick family houses, fisherman’s cottages, and terraces are all available in this area. Some towns, like Sevenoaks, are popular commuter towns, offering several trains per hour into Central London. If you tire of the majestic white cliffs and beautiful downs, you can travel from Canterbury to Calais, France in under an hour. There are excellent schools throughout the region, and family home prices will seem like a steal to those moving out of London. From water sports to horse riding, and with nearly almost a hundred golf clubs, there is no shortage of activities the whole family will enjoy - but if you do find you miss London, it’s only a short train ride away.
