Buses from Iwade into Sittingbourne or to the Isle of Sheppey tend to run once an hour. Check out the online timetables on the Arriva website (see right) or pop along to one of the many bus stops in Iwade to look at the timetable.


The nearest mainline train station is Sittingbourne but we are not far from Swale and Kemsley stations which enable you to get the train to Sittingbourne.


Iwade is conveniently located just off the A249 which leads to both the M2 (5 minutes with a fair wind) and the M20 (15-20 minutes).
