Coxheath is a large village to the south of Maidstone, built on the Greensand Ridge overlooking the Weald of Kent to the south and the Kent Downs to the north. The Greensand Way runs along the ridge on the outskirts of the village. Coxheath is situated to the west of the A229 (Chatham to Maidstone) road and is to be found either side of the B2163 running from Leeds to Teston. Coxheath has a thriving commercial community, based originally on fruit faming. The village boasts a range of shops, a restaurant, a cafe, two medical practices, a dental surgery, a primary school, a modern library, a church, a public house, a purpose-built village hall and open spaces for sport and recreation.
Coxheath is twinned with La Seguiniere, a village in the Loire Valley of France. Annual exchange visits are organised between residents of the two villages.
The Residents Village Hall serves as a community centre encouraging a large number of clubs and societies to flourish as well as providing a venue for social events and private parties. Regular activities include youth and adult football, badminton, table tennis, gymnastics, judo, tai-chi, dancing, indoor bowls and bingo. The hall also hosts a well supported preschool group and an active retirement association.
During the Christmas period each year the village centre and surrounding roads are transformed by a display of festive lighting, which has become a feature of this thriving and vibrant community.
