Featuring just 27 superbly designed private homes, set within an ecological haven, the development has been carefully conceived to reflect the local vernacular. Rosewood Place offers a wide range of three, four, and five-bedroom homes that will appeal to everyone from first time buyers and young professionals to growing families and downsizers.
One of the highlights of the glorious High Weald in Kent, Matfield is an idyllic rural countryside village. As you would expect from an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the surrounding landscapes are breathtaking, with ancient woodlands, fields and farmland providing a bucolic backdrop to every day life. Matfield itself ticks every box when it comes to archetypal village living – cricket games played on the pretty green, a choice of well-reviewed pubs, a picture-postcard duck pond and a tight-knit community.
Focus falls on Matfield Village Hall, which is used by a number of local clubs, sports groups and societies. From barn dances and big band nights to badminton and Brownies, the events programme is always packed. Weekly activities also include yoga, pilates, karate, keep fit and street dance – diverse enough to keep the whole family entertained.
The food and drink scene in Matfield is especially strong, given its small size. The Poet is renowned for its a la carte menu and selection of over 70 craft gins, while The Star Inn offers live music, guest ales and traditional pub food. There’s also well-attended speciality nights at The Hopbine and a weekly pop-up fish and chip van.
Residents are keen supporters of the Matfield Village Fete – an annual event where live music, classic cars, home baked cakes, locally-brewed beers and traditional fairground rides bring the community out in force. Cinderhill Woods is another much-loved Matfield asset, with 12 hectares of heathlands, grasslands, woodlands and streams ready to explore – on foot but also via managed bridleways.
More extensive retail and leisure facilities are a short drive away in Paddock Wood, Tonbridge, Royal Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone.
The local environs are home to a number of well-regarded schools. Early years education is provided within the parish of Matfield, with many families, later opting for the excellent local academy or a number of selective grammar schools in the Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone boroughs.
These include The Judd, Weald and Tonbridge Grammar in Tonbridge, The Skinners School, Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys and Tunbridge Wells Girls’ Grammar School in Tunbridge Wells, and Maidstone Grammar and Invicta Grammar in Maidstone.
Private educational facilities are numerous in Tonbridge and Sevenoaks, with The Schools at Somerhill, Hilden Grange Prep School and Fosse Bank three popular choices with Matfield residents.
