New Homes in Kent
Otherwise known as the ‘Garden of England,’ beautiful Kent offers great countryside, long stretches of coastline, picturesque villages and lively towns.
See and do
When buying a new home in Kent, there is a wide selection of areas to choose from. Canterbury has a strong cultural heritage and youthful vibe due to its university. It showcases attractions such as Canterbury Cathedral which dates back to the 11th century, while Faversham dates back even further to pre-historic times. Here you can explore semi-timbered buildings along with charming markets and one-off shops.
Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate offer splendid beaches, bays and seascapes along with watersports, surf schools and seaside charm. The Dickens House Museum in Broadstairs showcases a variety of memorabilia, and you can even visit Bleak House - a real building where Dickens took his holidays in the 1850s.
The historic spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells lies within the lovely High Weald area – a place of outstanding natural beauty. The town itself offers stylish restaurants and shops, farmers markets and eateries.
Folkestone is another great option in Kent. With a beautiful beach and cliff top promenade, artistic quarter with more than 100 artistic studios and the historic Leas Lift, transporting passengers to the Lower Leas Coastal Park, this is another superb location in Kent.
Tucked into the south east corner of England, Kent is very accessible by road, rail or air. And as the closest point to mainland Europe, it is handy for quick trips across the Channel.
London is under an hour away by high speed rail and Kent has connections with Charring Cross, London Bridge, St Pancras International, London Waterloo East and Victoria. Motorists travelling from the north or east should head to London when travelling to Kent and once on the M25, cross the Dartford Bridge and follow signs for the M2. Those coming from the South and West should get on to the M26 from the M25 and connect with the M20.
If you’re travelling further afield, London Gatwick Airport and Heathrow Airport are you closest options which take just over an hour to get to by car. Another option would be to take the Gatwick Express or Heathrow Express trains into London and from there get a connecting train.
A fantastic place to live
So come to the garden of England and find your new home in Kent. With so many great locations to choose from, your only problem will be deciding which one to go for.
