Smallhythe Road, Tenterden, Kent
Parkside Court has been carefully designed to blend in with its surroundings and forms a quiet courtyard in a setting of some fine mature trees. The development consists of eight properties grouped around an attractive communal garden. There is a visiting manager and emergency alarm system in all properties. It is just a short walk to the shops in the High Street.
Tenterden has excellent shopping facilities in the High Street which is about 300 metres from Parkside Court whilst Ashford, with its large shopping centre, is only 12 miles away. Tenderden has had its own railway station for over a hundred years and Tenterden Golf Club is conveniently situated on the northern side of the town.
The attractive main street contains a mixture of Elizabethan, Georgian and white weather-boarded houses with bow windows and porticoed doorways, and is lined with trees standing on the wide grass verges.
There are many interesting places to visit, not least Smallhythe Place about a mile south of the town. Here plays are still staged where Shakespearian actress Ellen Terry lived from 1899 to her death in 1928. At Rolvenden is the MC Booth collection of historic vehicles with a uniqe collection of Morgan three-wheeled cars, and near to Woodchurch is the South of England Rare Breeds Centre. The National Trust gardens at Sissinghurst are a few minutes journey by car.
Facilities: These include a visiting manager, emergency alarm system in all properties and attractive shared gardens.
Tenderden is the Jewel of the Weald and was founded in the C7th by monks from Minster Abbey in Thanet. In the middle ages it grew into a significant wool trading centre with links to the ancient Cinque Ports and emerged in the C18th as a stylish and prosperous town. St Mildred's Church was built during the late C12th chiefly of sandstone and has a particularly fine carved and panelled nave roof. The church was named after St Mildred, the Abbess of Minster-in-Thanet at the end of the C7th.
Tenterden is about 11 miles southwest of Ashford and about nine miles north of Rye. Cranbrook is six miles and Headcorn eight miles. Rolvenden is about three miles.
