St Giles Lodge is a stunning development of 31 one and two bedroom apartments, ideally located in the heart of Tonbridge.
Surrounded by idyllic, rolling countryside, with the river Medway meandering through its heart – and with over 150 listed buildings – it is no wonder that Tonbridge is widely considered an alluring town.
The postcard pretty Tonbridge Castle sits in the town centre and, when strolling along the high street, or the banks of the river Medway, its full beauty can be appreciated. Dating back to 1066, Tonbridge Castle is the most famous and historic building in the local area.
An extensive offering of shops, cafés and eateries make up the high street. Therefore, whatever your taste, Tonbridge will certainly cater for it. Theatres and a leisure centre offer the perfect recreational pursuits. Meanwhile supermarkets, dentists, doctors, post offices, and all those other essential amenities are located close by.
When venturing to the immediate areas surrounding Tonbridge, the idyllic and charismatic Ightham Mote is a must see. A timber framed, moated manor house, dating back to the 14th century, it possesses a wood panelled Great Hall and stunning courtyard. Its history – from medieval knights, to Henry VIII, and to high society Victorians – can be fully realised when visiting the tremendous building. Meanwhile, the Old Soar Manor, located close by, is a rare example of a 13th century stone manor house. Benefiting from good transport links, Tonbridge train station offers services to London, Ashford and Hastings. In addition, the town is serviced by numerous bus routes to Royal Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, Bromley and Maidstone. Whether you would like to explore the archives of history, take in wonderful views, or relax in a cosy tea room, Tonbridge possesses all you need for an enjoyable and relaxing retirement.
