Further afield but still within easy reach is the Ashdown Forest (8 miles distant), where residents can ramble around ancient woodland and sample the truly beautiful countryside that they can now call home. Famous Lingfield Park Racecourse is a similar distance - perfect for a day of decadence and adrenaline. Westerham, Oxted, Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells are all characterful and popular areas to frequent. Whether it is their charming traditional architecture, or their array of fetching boutiques and high street shopping, each one has their own distinct identities and unique attributes.
Amongst all these idyllic landscapes, there are also rich retail pickings. Stick Hill is situated close to and within the catchment area for a number of nearby primary and secondary schools, from independents to academies, the closest being Chiddingstone School and Hever C of E Primary School.
