96% of Londoners are now in favour of flexible working having re-set their lifestyles and searching for homes beyond the capital[1]. No longer bound to an office desk, commuters are moving further afield to smaller village locations[2] in hopes of embracing the freedom and comfort that rural living offers, and enjoying a slightly longer commute of 90 minutes rather than 60 minutes. For city house hunters looking to escape to the country, Millwood Designer Homes’ luxurious collection of properties at Bakers Field in the coastal village of Cliffsend, in Kent, is an idyllic option, offering buyers excellent transport links close to home.

Nestled in a picturesque village setting, perfectly positioned for easy commuting to the City, the properties at Bakers Field are ideal for city workers looking to maintain a healthy balance between working from home and being in the office. Ramsgate station is two miles away and provides regular high-speed rail services into London St. Pancras in approximately 75 minutes, whilst Minster station, which is just 10-minutes from Cliffsend, offers trains to Canterbury West station in as little as 16 minutes. From 2022, residents will be able to enjoy a short 10-minute walk to the new Thanet Parkway station, further improving commuting times into the city and beyond.

Philip Brown, Sales & Marketing Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments:


“As our lives as a nation evolve into a new normal, buyers are less restricted when it comes to location, meaning commuter towns are largely benefitting. Bakers Field is in the perfect location for city workers looking to venture out of the capital, closer to the coast yet still in reach of the city in just over an hour. We’ve already seen a high demand at Bakers Field by interested professionals, so we would encourage keen buyers to book a viewing as soon as possible to avoid missing out.”


Situated in a stunning location with Pegwell and Sandwich Bay just five minutes away, Bakers Field compromises 31 thoughtfully designed homes.  With a range of four and five bedroom homes offering generous living accommodation and a high level of specification that are perfect for a new home-working lifestyle.

All properties at Bakers Field also benefit from the Government’s temporary stamp duty holiday, in which homebuyers are exempt from paying any stamp duty on the first £500,000 of a property. With this scheme due to come to an end in March, there has never been a better time to buy a brand new home.

Ideal for those who enjoy all the great outdoors has to offer, Bakers Field is in a prime location for purchasers to enjoy a stunning 18-hole golf course at St. Augustine’s Golf Club less than a mile away. Pegwell Bay Country Park is also just a 17-minute walk from the development, as well as several local amenities and a range of dining options in nearby Ramsgate. Surrounded by three Grammar Schools, including Chatham and Clarendon Grammar School rated ‘Good’ by OFSTED, Bakers Field is ideal for families who want to escape the city and live the idyllic suburban lifestyle.

Prices at Bakers Field start from £630,000.
