Enjoy village life at Saxons Chase
The second phase of our popular Saxons Chase development is situated in the historic village of Headcorn, away from the bustle of busy towns but with easy access to Maidstone and Ashford. With a choice of three, four and five-bedroom homes, this intimate development is ideal for families, downsizers, first-time buyers, and investors.
Headcorn is far enough off the beaten track to keep its village feel, yet it's within easy reach of the M20 making it a convenient location for both the coast and the M25. It's a lovely place to bring up a family or perhaps retire to, with good local facilities and lovely countryside all around. It's more or less midway between Royal Tunbridge Wells, Ashford, and Maidstone for the area's bigger shopping centres and it's halfway between the Kent Downs and the High Weald for some of the South East's most beautiful countryside.
Our show homes are open for you to visit by appointment – this is to ensure there will be someone here to welcome you and make sure we're open to avoid disappointment. Just click on ‘Arrange an appointment' to choose the time that works best for you.
We look forward to seeing you soon.

For days out, the beaches at Camber Sands and Winchelsea Bay are only 17 miles away.
