Tonbridge is a large market town and administrative centre within the Borough of Tonbridge and Malling in Kent. Situated on the River Medway, 29 miles south of London, the town is home to the prestigious independent Tonbridge School, set up in 1552. The town has a long history and many royal connections through Tonbridge Castle, built in the 11th century - its last royal owner, Henry VIII, took it from the Duke of Buckingham, who he had executed for treason.
Since its launch in April the government's Help to Buy assistance scheme has facilitated an increase in customer interest at new homes developments across England and award-winning regional housebuilder Hillreed Homes is no exception, with two expanding Kent villages in particular attracting many enquiries.

Set over 800 acres near West Malling in Kent, Kings Hill is home to around 7,000 residents and it just keeps growing. Hillreed Homes is on its 14th development at Cathcart Gate after being one of the earliest housebuilders to start work on the site. Now part of Persimmon, the developer was part of the very first build phase and their homes flank the tree lined original entrance.
