This has been a wonderful home for us and our children over the past few years but now they are getting older our requirements have changed. We love the open countryside and the stunning views across the marshes. Stodmarsh Nature Reserve is known as the ‘Birds Heathrow’ as we have an enormous variety of migrating birds that use the Nature Reserve as a ‘resting place.’ It has been a great place for ponies and the paddocks could be used for a variety of animals if anyone wants sheep, pigs, chickens or even alpacas. There are plenty of facilities for growing fruit and vegetables and the large outbuildings could be developed for a variety of business purposes.
It is only a couple of miles to the delightful villages of Ickham and Wickhambreaux which includes a village hall, The Rose pub, a children’s playing field and a primary school rated Outstanding by Ofsted.

Wingham is not far away with its pubs, shops, post office and nearby Gibsons farm shop for all your upmarket local produce while for horsey enthusiasts the Barton Equestrian Centre is not far away.
