This site offers a rare and exciting opportunity to purchase a traditional brick cart lodge and large agricultural building in the beautiful village of Finglesham.
Finglesham lies in-between Deal (3.5 miles) and the Cinque Port of Sandwich (4 miles), which both offer a very good selection of amenities with the Cathedral City of Canterbury being 13.8 miles away. There are high speed train services from Sandwich and Canterbury to London St Pancras, with ferry crossings to the Continent from the Port of Dover and the Channel Tunnel services at Folkestone.
