Windsor Meadow can be found close to the centre of Marden down a pretty country lane. It benefits from many local amenities including Marden Station, which has direct trains to London in under an hour. This convenience coupled with stunning countryside makes life here a delight. Acclaimed for its apple growing and with pretty surrounding orchards, Marden is truly an idyllic area, yet Maidstone is 8 miles to the North and Tunbridge Wells is 14 miles to the West, making Windsor Meadow the perfect retreat, close to some vibrant towns.
At Windsor Meadow residents have an array of activities and areas in which to escape the stresses of day-to-day life. Marden Meadows to the east of the village is an 8 acre Site of Special Scientific Interest due to its beautiful and rare Orchids, Water Violets and Yellow Rattle. For more competitive or adrenaline fuelled pastimes, there are plenty of surrounding woodlands to ride, run, gallop or walk around. There are also team sports to join in with, such as the Marden Cricket & Hockey Club, or the youth football club.
Families moving to Marden will have a range of education options to choose from. The village is host to Marden Primary School, while a number of other schools and nurseries are close to hand, such as Bethany School and Poppy’s Day Nursery. Windsor Meadow is the perfect location to give children the best start in life.
Despite its rural location, Windsor Meadow is in an ideal position to benefit from a friendly local community, along with the more cosmopolitan features of Kent. Within walking distance is Marden Station, the village farmshop, bakery, a pharmacy, and of course The Unicorn, the local pub.
For some retail therapy visit The Royal Victoria Place in Tunbridge Wells, or travel to Bluewater to see the latest blockbuster and enjoy a meal in one of their many restaurants. Marden is in close proximity to Maidstone, with Fremlin Walk and the surrounding shops in easy reach. The coast is not far from the homes at under 30 miles, and a trip to Camber Sands or Hastings makes for a wonderful day out.

Mark and Kat, who both run a bespoke Digital Learning agency together “Onclick” (www.onclick.co.uk), moved out of London in 2011 and bought their first property; an older two-bedroom cottage in Marden. Kat explains: “Originally, we moved out of the city in order to get onto the ladder. Our cottage was a great starter property, however we started saving to extend, as it didn’t offer the living or entertaining space that we wanted.”
Mark continues: “Over two years, we’d saved enough to add an extension, however because of the plot size, we were quite limited. The more we researched, we decided to spend our money on a new-build home, saving us a lot time doing DIY, which we could invest into our business instead, and offering better value for money.”
Kat comments: “Our friends bought a Millwood home four years ago in Ditton, Kent, and spoke very highly of them, so we decided to visit Windsor Meadow. We really loved the development and originally looked at a three-bedroom terraced home similar to my friends, as we thought anything larger would be out of our budget. However, we were pleased to discover that the Help to Buy scheme isn’t just for first-time buyers! Knowing we were eligible to utilise it, enabled us to look at a larger property. Generally, moving costs are so expensive, therefore it was one hundred percent worth investing the money into a bigger four-bedroom home, knowing we won’t have to move again, if we decide to start a family.”
Mark comments: “We really liked the layout of The Barnham – we know it’s a home that can evolve with us as we grow. For now, we are using one of our spare rooms as a home office and have transformed one of the rooms downstairs into a games room, with a pool table. We walk our Jack Russell, Win, in the green fields that our house overlooks and he loves the new garden.”
Kat adds: “What we were originally trying to achieve when we wanted to extend our cottage was gaining more living and entertaining space and I was obsessed with having bi-fold doors. In our new home, we have a great size living space with bi-folds – over Christmas it was perfect for entertaining.”
Kat concludes: “I grew up in Marden, its lovely and has a fantastic community feel. Our office is based in the village, so we can walk to work in 10-15 minutes, which is a very convenient commute every-day. We previously lived in London, so it was a really important for us to be able to get into the city for both work and socially to meet friends. Marden train station is within walking distance and takes under an hour, which is perfect!”
