The village of Speldhurst has a special place in my family’s history. My parents lived on St Mary’s Lane when I was born, and of course, my grandparents forged their names in local history with their occupancy of The George & Dragon.

So, naturally, when I was looking to move from central Tunbridge Wells, the opportunity to buy a house in the village was a no-brainer. I have lived here with my family for over ten years now, and the village remains an incredible community to be a part of, as are its neighbours of Bidborough, Ashurst, Groombridge, and Langton. I always sense pride when I hear people say they live in these villages – they are all so unique and beautiful.
