The village of Fawkham is in North Kent, within Sevenoaks District. Fawkham is a rural parish with 220 homes and a population of just over 500 people. The village has a green with a pub, a village hall, farms, several schools, livery yards, a golf course, a private hospital and a large hotel with a spa. The village's main road winds down a picturesque valley and walkers benefit from access to several bluebell woods managed by the Woodland Trust. The parish church of St Mary's dates back to the 12th century and there is an annual village fete, with dog show, held in its grounds.
There is easy access to the village from the M25, M20 and the A20. Longfield and Eynsford are the nearest train stations and the journey time to London Victoria is about 40 minutes. The village is not served by a bus route. Bluewater shopping centre and the Eurostar service at Ebbsfleet International are just a 10 minute drive away. The market town of Sevenoaks is a twenty minute drive down the A225. Brands Hatch race circuit is close by and some villagers qualify for free annual passes to events.
