Cherry Garden Avenue is a pleasant tree lined road, sought after due to its close proximity to Folkestone West Mainline Station (with high speed link to London, St Pancras, journey times of under an hour), both the Girls and Boys Grammar Schools and highly regarded primary schools including Sandgate and Morehall. The Turner School and The Academy are also within walking distance. The property is only about a mile and a half from Folkestone town centre and a relatively short, level walk from the picturesque Leas Promenade. From here access can be gained to the coastal path at the foot of The Leas which can be followed all the way to Folkestone Harbour with the recently revitalised "Harbour Arm" with champagne bar, restaurants, cafes and live music. The vibrant village of Sandgate with its eclectic mix of village store, antiques shops, boutiques, public houses, cafes and restaurants is a little further where the long stretches of shingle beach and sailing club can be found by meandering down one of the pretty lanes or alleyways from the high street. The Cinque Ports Town of Hythe with its bustling High street and Waitrose, is approximately 5 miles away to the west.

There is a variety of sporting facilities available along the coast, including rowing and sailing clubs, cricket, squash and bowls clubs. There are also a choice of golf courses in the immediate vicinity together with the Hotel Imperial Leisure Centre. The High Speed Rail Link service to London, with a journey time to St Pancras of less than an hour, is available at Folkestone West Station which is just a few minutes walk away. The M20 motorway network and the Channel Tunnel Terminal at Cheriton are about 1 and 3 miles distant respectively.
