Property Summary


Full Details

The Stable is located down a private drive just off Bredlands Lane, on the edge of the very pretty village of Westbere, which lies about 4 miles north west of the City of Canterbury.

The village of Westbere is set in a preservation area that overlooks the beautiful Westbere Lakes (created by gravel extraction), which teem with birds and wildlife, and provide excellent country walks. There is a village hall, All Saints Parish Church and the well-known Yew Tree public house/restaurant, which was built in 1348 and is one of the oldest pubs in Kent. Queen Anne and an Archbishop of Canterbury are reputed to have stayed there, and Dick Turpin evaded capture from the law by hiding out there.

Everyday facilities can be found at the neighbouring village of Sturry, which has a range of local shops, together with the Junior Kings school, and a mainline railway station connecting to Canterbury and the coast.

The historic City of Canterbury offers a wider range of facilities, many cultural interests, an excellent shopping centre, a good selection of schools in the private and state sectors, and colleges and universities.
Recreation facilities include golf courses, sport centres, swimming pools, championship cricket, and rugby. Fishing and water sports can be found along the coasts.

Transport links are good, with the high-speed train operating into London St Pancras from Canterbury West in less than an hour.
The A2 gives access to the M2, M20 and M25 motorway networks. The Port of Dover and Channel Tunnel terminal at Cheriton provide cross-channel services to the continent.

The Stable is an attractive detached converted former stable dating from around the eighteenth century and converted in late 1990, and now forms part of a small farmstead of five dwellings.
