This historic and picturesque area, acclaimed for its apple-growing in surrounding pretty orchards makes a pleasant setting to delight in a lifestyle that many can only dream of.

There’s a village farmshop, bakery, pharmacy, and of course a local pub -The Unicorn. Marden’s library houses archives from its 1,000-year history. Nature-lovers will appreciate the nearby Marden Meadows – this Site of Special Scientific Interest, with rare plants and animals boasts one of the best remaining examples of unimproved haymeadows in Kent.
Marden has good road links to the A229 and A21, which makes for easy access to the vibrant towns of Maidstone, 8 miles to the North, and Tunbridge Wells, 14 miles to the West meaning you’re close to everything larger towns have to offer and making it easy to enjoy an ideal mix of country and town living.
