Docklands residents are the second largest group of buyers at a development in Royal Tunbridge Wells.

Knights Wood in Royal Tunbridge Wells offers green open spaces, an easy commute and good schools - and the property prices are generally lower than London.

As property prices in the capital continue to surge after the recent election, some buyers are looking to Kent as an alternative.

Set in 205 acres of woodland, Knights Wood was launched in June last year and, to date, buyers from Docklands make up the second biggest group of purchasers by postcode area, after those already resident in the area.

Sales director Susie Bennett said: “We are pleased - but not surprised - that Knights Wood is proving popular with buyers moving out of London.

“These homes are fantastic value for money, offering a real combination of style, space and convenience.

“With High Brooms and Tunbridge Wells stations nearby, commuters have a choice of travelling to London Bridge, Cannon Street, Waterloo or Charing Cross stations, yet are still able to enjoy the tranquil surroundings and more relaxed pace of life that Tunbridge Wells offers.”

Prices for the remaining three and four-bedroom homes within The Lanes start at £425,000.
