Woodland: The house is surrounded by a wood which is accessible to guests. However we do not own the whole wood and you are asked to respect our neighbours. There is a vast array of wild life, from squirrels to badgers, from blue tits to jays. You are welcome to walk or just sit and watch. Several small streams criss cross the wood but these are easily crossed and provide more entertainment from the wild life.
Eating Out: There are two Pubs in the village which both have restaurants serving typical English fayre. Most local villages have their own pubs which do meals. Our village also has a bakers/butchers and Post Office/village store. The nearest supermarket is Tesco 6 miles away.

Why Patricia and Michael Jupp chose Aldington
We built our house in 1998 and added the garage with studio over in 2007. The house is set in 4 acres of woodland which is always changing through the seasons. We are in an area of outstanding natural beauty which is why we love the area.
What makes this apartment unique
Our swimming pool is great during the spring summer and autumn and we are just adding a hot tub in February 2013 which will be available to guests throughout the year. A great way to unwind after a day of sightseeing or just to relax any time.
