The Old Dairy is excellently positioned within a desirable and most popular village lane in the picturesque village of Alkham. Alkham itself offers a wealth of beautiful scenic rural walks, rides and cycle routes, not only through the village of Alkham but through to all the adjoining neighbouring villages too. The village has a range of amenities, including a very successful and elegant Restaurant/bar, namely The Marquis which can be found in the centre of the village overlooking the village green and park. There is also a Community Hall with regular clubs and activities, plus a large Equestrian Centre. The town centre of Folkestone is situated only 4 miles away with its relatively new shopping centre, restaurants and coffee shops. The Channel Port of Dover is within only a few miles providing a wide range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities. Access onto the A2 is within just a short driving distance, with the cathedral city of Canterbury being within approx. 15 miles. The high speed rail link to London and St Pancras accessed either through Folkestone West or Folkestone Central has a reduced travel time commuting to under 1 hour. Both these stations are approx. a 10 minute car journey, as is Dover Priory which offers alternative commuting routes.
