With traces of human occupation dating back to Saxon and even Roman times, the village of Whitfield is located just four miles inland from the centre of Dover, and today comprises one of the most desirable and sought-after residential areas in and around the town.
It also retains much of its separate village identity and atmosphere, with its own surprisingly comprehensive amenities including sports and recreational facilities, both primary and secondary schools, three churches, and local shops catering for all day-to-day needs.
With Whitfield becoming an ever more popular place to reside, there are exciting plans to further develop the Whitfield Aspen School, expanding the educational offering of SEN entry provision to meet the needs of a growing community.
Nearby Dover features a wide range of restaurants and bars, a sports and leisure centre, and other amenities including a choice of both state and independent schools catering for all ages from 3 to 18 years, and a modern community hospital. As you’d expect from a town of its size, it enjoys a fascinating choice of shopping, ranging from well-known high-street stores to small independent shops offering everything from art and crafts to quality gifts, and including a designer outlet retail park located in the waterfront setting of Dover Marina. Take advantage of the numerous sailings each day to both Calais and Dunkirk, simply ‘popping over to France’ for lunch and a spot of continental retail therapy is always an option!
