We have really enjoyed living here for the past five years and it will be a wrench to leave as we love Sarre and would like to stay in the village. However the property is now too big for us and we are looking to downsize. The village has many historical connections and the pub is famous for its secret Cherry Brandy recipe introduced by the Huguenots who arrived in the village after fleeing religious persecution during the reign of Louis XIV. It is a very friendly place with delightful neighbours and there is a regular bus service with buses going to Canterbury or the Thanet towns so the village is very accessible.
We are not far from St Nicholas at Wade with its 13th century church as an historic landmark and immediate necessities are available in the village shop and post office. There are three halls in the village including the village hall that hosts weekly events including keep fit and art groups, while cricket and football are played on the Bell Meadow recreation ground and a new children’s playground has recently been created. For horsey enthusiasts there are livery stables in Shuart Lane and you can learn to dance at the Thanet Stage School.
It is only four miles to Birchington with its restaurants, shops, station, secondary schools and beaches. Indeed Birchington can also offer bowls, tennis and water skiiing and there is the sailing club and other watersports such as wind surfing in nearby Minnis Bay, not to mention the Westgate and Birchington Golf Club for golfing aficonados. If you enjoy walking there are a number of excellent places for a bracing walk with the dog and for cyclists you can revel in a trip to Reculver along the Viking Coastal Trail.
You will also find a good and inexpensive cinema in Westgate, theatres in Margate and Broadstairs and if you want to go further afield Westwood Cross includes a large shopping centre with a variety of high street stores, a retail park and the Vue cinema complex as well as a casino and numerous restaurants.
