This convenience coupled with the stunning surrounding countryside, makes Windsor Meadow the perfect place for commuters to call home.
Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes comments: “Kent is home to a selection of well-known commuter towns and more homebuyers are recognising the benefits of moving out of the city to smaller villages with convievent rail links as an excellent option. The village of Marden is extremely popular with commuters and over 90% of our homebuyers so far, are looking to commute from their new home. Windsor Meadow is within walking distance of the station and combines the best of both worlds, thanks to its beautiful rural surroundings and efficient transport connections.”
