Leigh is a picturesque, unspoilt Kent community with a large village green, 13th century parish church, a popular primary school and a vibrant community spirit. The village is set on the edge of the Surrey Hills and the High Weald area of outstanding natural beauty.

Leigh is a thriving and traditional rural village, where you can pass the time of day with the owners of the combined Post Office and general stores on the High street or meet with other regulars at the pub; The Fleur De Lis, which is found in the centre of the village. The Fleur De Lis has a courtyard for al fresco dining and brings the community together with regular curry and quiz nights or hog roasts in the summer. A second pub, The Plough is on the eastern edge of Leigh.

Well attended clubs include badminton, bowls, Brownies and Scouts, there's a youth forum and a WI. Leigh primary school is next to the village green and caters for children aged 4-11.

Tucked beside the River Medway, Tonbridge provides a busier town centre with more shopping outlets and leisure opportunities than rural Leigh, and it is about four and a half miles away, or five minutes by train, so easily accessible from home.

Idyllic manor houses and an exemplary castle sit in an ancient landscape with woodland and pastures, traditional villages and hop farms. Tonbridge prides itself with some intriguing links with Jane Austen, and being home to Kent's best example of a motte-and-bailey gatehouse with its 11th century castle, where audio tours and interactive exhibits help bring history to life.

There are plenty of places to eat out whatever tastes you may crave with chains including a Pizza Express and a number of different independent eateries such as The Ivy House, a beamed 16th century inn and the Pepper Lounge Indian takeaway.

Haysden Country Park, to the west of town is a great location for a family day out. With two lakes and a stretch of the River Medway running through it, the park is a popular venue for water sports and a relaxing setting for a variety of leisure activities.

Excellent transport connections serve the area so it is easy to get around, whether you are commuting for work or filling your leisure time.

There are regular buses from Leigh to Tonbridge and further afield.
