Finberry, a new village in the garden of England provides this vibrant, flourishing community with a mix of traditionally designed apartments, 2 & 3 bedroom cottages and 4 bedroom family homes surrounded by beautiful countryside in the town of Ashford, Kent. From the overall, well designed layout of the development to the look and feel of the properties themselves, right down to the smallest specification details, Crest Nicholson have created something truly welcoming in every sense of the word.
Finberry is a modern, vibrant community that's also firmly rooted in tradition. An archaeological survey has revealed human activity on the site dating back 12,000 years. We will explore and preserve this heritage to give Finberry residents a feeling of continuity with the past.
We are also committed to maintaining and enhancing the ecology of the site's environs, creating space for wildlife to flourish. This is reflected in the public art we've commissioned. Stunning geese and swan sculptures capture and celebrate the natural beauty that surrounds the new village. Simple yet visually intriguing, these iconic artworks provide an enduring link with nature and the local environment.
Just a short hop to Ashford International station allows you access to all that the capital has to offer in just 38 minutes. There's also easy access to the M25, Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
Explore the stunning towns and cities of the continent, from the historic Dunkerque and picturesque Calais to the culture hubs of Lille and Bruges, it's all a short hop from Kent.
What's more, Ashford International is just 3 miles away, allowing you easy access to one of the world's most beautiful cities - Paris - in just one hour 55 minutes.
Perfectly positioned on the south east coast, Kent is a county like no other. From amazing architecture and castles to superb shopping and scenery, this is a county with something for everyone.
Finberry has been carefully designed to combine neighbourhood amenities with green space and easy access to the countryside. Facilities will include a new school, community centre and play area. In addition, imaginative landscaping ensures that the development feels open and connected to the surrounding rural environment, which includes historic Captain's Wood and the picturesque Stour River and Meadows.
To enhance the village feel, pedestrian and cycle routes will link with established cross-country footpaths. They will spur the central avenue which will be ecologically landscaped to provide a wildlife corridor connecting Stour Meadows with Bilham Dyke. A meadow to the north of the development will provide community space and a wildlife habitat to promote ecological biodiversity.
Open since September 2015 on a temporary site in Ashford, Finberry Primary School will be relocating to its new site on the Finberry Development in September 2017.

Part of The Stour Academy Trust, a leading multi-academy trust with 7 primary schools across Kent, the school will enjoy brand new facilities, a nursery for pre-school age children, and a small centre for children with social, emotional and behavioural needs. At the heart of the Ashford’s Finberry Village, Finberry Primary School aims to provide local families with an outstanding educational facility.
