Houses & Flats for Sale and to Rent in Godinton Park, Ashford, Kent.
Godinton Park is found on the outskirts of south-west Ashford, between Great Chart and Hothfield and just off the A28. It is a contemporary development, built originally in the 1970s and 1980s. More recently, a number of executive houses have been added to Godinton Park, centred around Sweet Bay Cresecent, offering executive suburban living with access to Ashford’s amenities. Godinton Park prides itself on being a great location for family life and provides its residents with a quiet and secure neighbourhood.
An Ashford residential suburb, Godinton Park backs onto Godinton House Estate and rural Ashford countryside. Godinton House and Gardens is set in 12 acres of beautiful fields, meadows, grazing land and gardens. Locals have the fortune of being able to regularly enjoy its facilities – there are tea rooms, regular performances, fairs and walks – enough to occupy families every weekend. And, there is also the comfort in knowing the estate protects the countryside from further development.
Godinton is built around Loudon Woods and much of this wooded area has remained, providing the local residents with a great area for walking the dog, an early morning run or cycling. And, its trails lead across to The Warren and further afield, reaching the North Downs.
Itself, Godinton, does have a local convenience store, a well-reputed restaurant in ‘The New Chimneys,’ a hairdressers and a regular bus service. It also has a very good school which is well-achieving with great opportunities. The school has its own breakfast and after school clubs, a huge pull for parents wishing to work; and, the school is central to the community, holding fundraising events and activity days.
Godinton is well-placed for Ashford’s good secondary schools: the girls’ grammar school, Highworth, is a 10 minute walk away; and, the ever-improving Towers School and Sixth Form Centre is just on the other side of the M20. Godinton is also within the catchment area of the progressive comprehensive school in Tenterden, Homewood School and Sixth Form.
Ashford town centre is close-by and within a 20 minutes walking distance, giving easy access to the town’s facilities, Ashford International Train Station and the McArthurglen Designer Outlet. Between Godinton Park and the new estate, Repton Manor, there is a Waitrose, which is only a 5 minute walk and 10 minutes beyond that, Sainsbury’s, making shopping easy for those juggling hectic family lives. The opposite direction leads to the rolling fields of Great Chart and Bethersden, again making Godinton a perfect place to live for town and country life.
