The surrounding countryside forms part of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, over which there is a wealth of public footpaths, bridle paths and cycle routes; including the nearby Lyminge Forest.A regular bus service runs through the village giving access to the north to the historic Cathedral City of Canterbury and, to the south, the Channel Tunnel town of Folkestone and Ancient Cinque Port Town of Hythe, on the coast. These offer excellent shopping, recreational and educational establishments; including both Grammar Schools and Universities, together with high speed main line train services to London, with the travel time to St Pancras being some 60 minutes.
