Walderslade Area Guide
Put Walderslade firmly on your radar if you’re looking for a semi-rural setting a stone’s throw from excellent road links. Small satellite villages, such as Bredhurst, Hempstead and Wigmore, afford peace and privacy with access to acres of rolling Kentish countryside and cozy, traditional pubs.
Spanning the ME5 postcode, Walderslade is located in the middle of Chatham, Maidstone, Snodland and Sittingbourne. The nearby areas of Wayfield, Blue Bell Hill, Lordswood, Wouldham, Weedswood, Aylesford and Eccles complete the location close to the M2.
The BIG 3:
- Mainline stations at nearby Chatham, Rochester, Gillingham and Rainham
- Immediate access to the M2 and A2
- Regular commuter coaches into London
Walderslade and its villages benefit from a good choice of primary and secondary schools, as well as being in the catchment for some of the Medway’s grammars. There’s a ‘find-a-school’ facility on every one of our online property listings, where you can filter schools by age, type and Ofsted rating.
It’s all about the outdoors life, with Snodhurst Wood, Collibank Woods and the vast Capstone Country Park offering great dog walks and nature trails. The Wayfield Estate is home to a golf driving range with a pitch and putt course, and there are two indoor leisure centres - The Park Club and Lordswood - for when the weather takes a turn for the worse.
