CoLJ 7 - Ashford Apartment.

Wednesday involved a trip to Ashford in Kent to look at some apartments as possible permanent UK accommodation as alternative to Spain for several months of the year, including the three hottest summer months. In 2005 it was voted the fourth best place to live in the United Kingdom.

We visited a site entitled 'Evolution' by Fairview Homes. Unfortunately the site and properties failed to impress. The location and access were very disappointing. The houses and apartment blocks were of a modern concept that reminded us of a Lego model town. The apartments were in our opinion too small.

The trip was not the failure it might seem. It has given us an actual, physical, appreciation of the modern concept of design and size of new build apartments; something that cannot be truly appreciated from on-line property searches. That's one site crossed off the list.

On the journey back to Roman Way we stopped at Tenterden for lunch, as in the morning we had passed through the town and thought it picturesque.
