On North Kent’s coastline, you find Swale Borough, equidistant distant between London and the Channel Ports and Tunnel. There are three distinct focal points – Faversham, Sittingbourne and the Isle of Sheppey, as well as smaller rural and village Swale communities.
Residents benefit from ‘Blue Flag’ (2021) award-winning beaches on the Isle of Sheppey, plus the busy historic market towns of Faversham, Sheerness and Sittingbourne. Swale also boasts some beautiful countryside and several pretty villages nestled in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a vast expanse of marshes, nature reserves and country parks where visitors can go walking, bird watching and fishing.
Some excellent local village pubs provide good quality food and beverages, such as the Three Tuns at Lower Halstow. The Four Horseshoes Pub and Cycling Cafe in Graveney near Faversham is an inviting pit stop for cyclists, walkers and locals to refuel. Other village pubs are a destination, including The Plough at Stalisfield, which is Lyndsey’s favourite, and the Plough and Harrow Greek Taverna just outside Borden.
The area also benefits from ‘High-Speed One’ rail services along the North Kent line, with Faversham as the terminus station.
Wherever you choose to live across Swale Borough, you will benefit from the. However, our local TAUK estate agent Lyndsey, tells us why you may choose each town individually.
Nestled between the rural delights of the Kent Downs and the beauty of its coastal wetlands, surrounded by fruit farms and hop gardens, it would be hard to find a more authentic and charming market town than Faversham. There are numerous independent shops, medieval streets and a market square occupied three times a week by stallholders selling produce from local farms.
Faversham’s town centre is architecturally significant, with cobbled streets lined with a combination of stunning 15th-century, Georgian and Victorian buildings. ‘Buyers love the range of historical architecture, with much of this ancient town being medieval’, says Lyndsey.
One of the great things about Faversham is you don’t have to get in the car; the shops and the countryside are both within walking distance,’ Lyndsey says. That said, many buyers, particularly those with children, choose to base themselves in one of the pretty villages a few miles from the town, where there are oast houses with extensive gardens and small farms with space for horses.
Along with a relaxed, rural lifestyle, the grammar schools draw many buyers. The town punches above its weight when it comes to education.
Sittingbourne has all the charm of a Kentish market town, with the coast and countryside close to hand – and it’s less than an hour from London by train. With a host of local amenities, Sittingbourne is growing in popularity every year. Sittingbourne is ready to step up its image by embracing a £46 million regeneration scheme designed to create a ‘destination town’. The Spirit of Sittingbourne master plan contains new apartments, an eight-screen cinema, new restaurants and an improved public realm –a vision already turning heads.
A good choice of primary and secondary schools, including two grammars in Sittingbourne itself, appeals to families.
Sittingbourne offers property from all eras; Victorian dwellings and 1930s’ ideal’ homes to brand new apartments. In addition, look out for riverside homes, listed dwellings, barn and oast house conversions, and country equestrian estates – especially on the edges of Sittingbourne and in the neighbouring villages.
If you want to combine the above Kentish charm with a quieter pace of life, you move to the Isle of Sheppey. There is a thriving, robust community. It’s also more well connected than its position would suggest.
