The site is situated centrally within the village of Shadoxhurst and benefits from a range of local facilities including small village shop, post office, village hall and public house. Ashford offers a wide selection of primary junior and secondary schools along with several exceptional independent schools.

Junction 9 of the M20 motorway is about five miles distant, connecting to the southern motorway network system and the continent. Regular bus services run close to the site.
The development site extends to approximately 1.74 hectares (4.3 acres) and offers the buyer an opportunity to create communal areas with good gardens to each house. At the front of the site is a detached three bedroom bungalow (Delcroft) and to the rear of this is a level agricultural field currently laid to grass. The site adjoins existing residential development to the south and farmland to the north with lovely countryside views. The proposed scheme is for a mix of four and five bedroom houses built in a contemporary style, all of which will exceed 2,000 ft².
