Local area

The area is well-set with commuting in mind, with the newly-constructed Peter’s Bridge across the Medway giving direct access to the A228 and the wider Kent area, as well as London being just over an hour away.

Local amenities
Life at Riverside Place is no different to any village community, so you can simply pop down to the well-established village of Wouldham, where you’ll find the Wouldham Village Stores for your day-to-day needs; there’s also two traditional village pubs The Medway Inn and The Waterman’s Arms for refreshment. Alternatively, just over the new bridge is the town of Snodland, where you’ll find a host of shops, takeaway restaurants, a chemist and a supermarket. There is also a convenience shop at the planning stage in Peters Village itself.

Wouldham All Saints CE Primary School has been part of the community for over 125 years. As part of the redevelopment it is being relocated to brand new premises within Peters Village, so Riverside Place residents will also have the convenience of the school only a few minutes walk away. This excellent new school is ideal for young families, offering all the facilities and teaching expertise you’d expect from a modern school.

Local area
You’ll find there’s plenty of scope for sporting and leisure activities to immerse yourself in. Peters Village will have its own extensive playing fields, or you can get on your bike and explore the surrounding countryside. A magnificent esplanade has been built along the entire development waterfront, perfect for running, lengthy cycling or the start of a hiking expedition; it also includes a bridleway for horse-riding enthusiasts

If you are looking slightly further afield the ancient cathedral city of Rochester is just 5 miles away with its picturesque high street and independent shops offering a unique shopping experience. Rochester is also well-known for its many historic buildings and links with Charles Dickens as well as the authentically English festival, Sweeps.

Maidstone is just 8 miles away and offers a number of museums, galleries and theatres as well as a more contemporary shopping experience with many well-known high street brands.
