Thank you to Celia and her team at Hunters for their letting services. Everything was explained to us fully and communication and contact was great. Celia did a great job making all of us feel comfortable and at ease with the process. I look forward to continuing to use Hunters and would recommend them. Thank you Celia and team!

Mr Tamang

This was our first experience using Hunters and it was by far the best we have had as tenants of a property let and managed by a real estate agency. The staff have been amazing and super helpful throughout the tenancy. If I had a property to let in the area I would absolutely chose Hunters to manage it, they have been very responsive to any query and conducted the management visits as required. A special mention goes to Celia, for her pragmatic and resolutive approach and care.

Mr Golding

Fabulous service from Charlie and the team. Brilliant recommendations on our properties in the area. Once we can, we will be using them to help us further.

Local area guide

Why live in Folkestone?

Folkestone provides a wide range of facilities and quirky places to visit. If you like exploring, this is the place for you, with beautiful walks in the hills or the superb sand and stone beach at Folkestone Harbour. Trendy shops and bars are at the forefront of the town; there is so many things to enjoy. Take a look for yourself!

What is there to do for families in Folkestone?

Families will love the beach and harbour, cafes and bars offer all year round use and are a great setting for walks.

If you like exploring you will appreciate the visit to the ‘White Horse’ known all over Kent, the White Horse is a great place to visit and take photos, the hill is steep and will provide plenty of exercise!

Folkestone’s leisure centre is also a great place for children to visit. Football pitches and sport activities in abundance to tire those legs and enjoy with friends and family.

Schooling

The schooling in Folkestone is fantastic, from primary to secondary; all of the schools have a minimum of GOOD with Ofsted. Conveniently placed all over the area, no matter where you may reside you will find the perfect school close by.

Nightlife in Folkestone

If you enjoy a night out, Folkestone is the place to be with fantastic bars and restaurants spread over town!

Here's our top 3:.

  1. Rocksalt – A hugely popular bar and restaurant, it gives the feel of relaxation. Imagine taking in a cocktail on the rooftop overlooking the harbour on those long summer evenings!
  2. Skuba Bar & Restaurant – Again a great place to dine, a family friendly bar it offers families the chance to take in a bite to eat but also for party goers to enjoy a night on the town on a Friday and Saturday evening! Reasonably priced also… we think it’s a great place to try!
  3. The Radnor Arms – A massively quirky and traditional pub/restaurant – The Radnor Arms is suitable for all ages, with outside courtyard area it is great for families. If you are looking for a romantic setting also, the garden area under the stars is a great place for making memories.

Transport links

Transport in Folkestone we feel is second to none, there is two main HS2 rail stations which provide travel to London St Pancras in under 54 minutes. There is also links to Dover Priory which links to Whistable/Ramsgate.

There is Stagecoach bus links to Hastings and Dover also, a great trip to take the family on. Bus routes travel through Rye, St Marys Bay and New Romney en route, take in the sights!

The M20 motorway serves easy access and is approx 8 minutes drive away from Folkestone Town Centre, there is plenty of parking in Folkestone also… one of the reasons it is hugely popular during Summer months.
