Redrow - St. Andrews Park,
About the Development
Our beautiful St. Andrews Park development is situated in the village of Halling, a mid-sized village located in a gap in the North Downs in the Northern part of Kent. The site is located next to a large blue lake and set against the backdrop of chalk cliffs, looking down to the River Medway and across the Medway valley.
In many ways a traditional English village, Halling has everything you would expect and want in the way of must-have amenities. There is a church, a Post Office, a convenience store and a youth centre in the centre, while the large blue lake helps to support the village's water supply.
Longford Dental Practice is only three miles from St. Andrews Park, Halling Medical Centre is within walking distance, and Maidstone Hospital which has an Accident and Emergency department, is only 20 minutes by car.
From comforting pub food to exquisite fine dining, Halling and the surrounding area has a range of options for all tastes. The best in British Mediterranean cuisine is available at Atrium Restaurant and Rochester's high street is home to Topes Restaurant. Offering a variety of menus that are all prepared with the best local produce, the restaurant is set in a beautiful building dating as far back as the 15th century. Among the many pubs in the area are The New Bell Inn in Rochester and Upnor’s The Ship Inn. The latter is a true village pub, which prides itself on its family friendly atmosphere and its ever-changing daily specials menu.
Halling Primary School lies within the village itself, with Wouldham CofE Primary and Snodland CofE Primary also close by. There is also an excellent choice of high quality senior schools within easy reach, including Sir Joseph Williamson’s, Cobham Hall, Kings School and The Robert Napier School.
