The remaining parts of Crockham Farm Oast are on a plot situated just outside the picturesque village of Hernhill, nestled within some beautiful countryside with outstanding views over the surrounding orchards and rolling farmland. The plot is approx. 0.3 acres in size and is marked out in red in the image shown under the photoÂs section of the details. There are the remains of the Oast House on the plot which are in a fairly dilapidated condition occupying the plot currently. The plot is generally a level plot although it is quite overgrown currently.
We understand that there are currently no Tree Preservation Orders or other onerous designations on the plot. We believe that this plot offers the potential for development of some kind subject to the necessary planning consents being granted.
Please note that the plot has had a previous application for a single storey building to be built turned down in 2016 under ref: 16/508496/PNQCLA
We are of the understanding that the plot has no current relevant residential planning and we understand that no approach has been made to the local authority in regards of this.
The village of Hernhill lies approximately three miles to the east of Faversham and only seven miles from the cathedral city of Canterbury and has a picturesque village green, overlooked by a fifteenth century Church of St Michael and the historic Red Lion public house. The village is also served by another pub, The Three Horseshoes and an outstanding primary school.
Nearby Blean Woods, which have been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, cover more than eleven square miles are ideal for a peaceful walk. The closest village is Boughton-under-Blean, which benefits from another good primary school, a post office, a village store, several pubs and a restaurant. Hernhill is also close to the A2 which gives easy access to the motorway network for both London and the coast.
The nearby town of Faversham offers a far wider range of shopping, leisure and recreational amenities, including an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a cinema, a museum and numerous good pubs and restaurants.
The town is served by a good selection of primary schools and two secondary schools, one of which being the renowned Queen Elizabeth Grammar School. A wider selection of state, grammar and private schools can be found and Canterbury and both Faversham and Canterbury have mainline stations with a high speed link to London St Pancras.
The bustling seaside town of Whitstable is approximately five miles away and is famous for its seafood and annual oyster festival held at the vibrant harbour and picturesque quayside.
