Houses, Bungalows & Cottages for Sale and to Rent in Smeeth.
A charming little village set back from the A20, the main road linking Ashford to Folkestone, and neighbouring pretty villages such as Brabourne, Sellinge and Mersham.
Smeeth is very well-located. To the north of the village lie the North Downs, with their presence noticeable from almost any Smeeth location; and, to the south, the English coast and the Romney Marshes. Being just 5 miles from Ashford and just over 5 miles from Hythe, Smeeth offers its residents the benefits of the town, country and seaside living. Therefore, Smeeth is a popular choice for those who need to work in the city but require the retreat offered by a country village.
However, with an active parish council, shared with that of Brabourne, there is also a lot offered within the community of Smeeth. From allotment societies to the village football club, Smeeth caters for a whole variety of groups. Children can enjoy Smeeth’s Scouts group, while adults can learn calligraphy or take part in body conditioning.
Although a small and intimate village, Smeeth does have its own village primary school, which is deemed by OfSted as good. However, it is also the village primary school for Brabourne making it a village school with the social and resource advantages offered by a larger school roll. Smeeth’s secondary school aged children have access to Ashford’s grammar schools and improving secondary school, the North School. In fact, the North and the boys’ grammar, Norton Knatchball, are based on the Smeeth side of Ashford.
Owing to its location, Smeeth is great for horse-riding, running, walking and cycling. In fact, with its expanse of fields and locality to hills, Smeeth can accommodate kite-flying and dog-walking, offering even more to families and residents. For lunchtime or evening relaxation, The Woolpack, Smeeth, offers traditional, home-made food and local ales. And, for that real pamper, Smeeth is opposite Evegate Business Centre, where can be found a variety of quaint boutiques, a spa and beautician’s, and a hairdresser’s.
