Orchard Gate is an enchanting new hamlet of 37 private homes. Each home at Orchard Gate has been carefully designed with a delightful mix of styles. Reclaimed materials have been used to reflect the vernacular of the area over past centuries, giving the sense that the buildings have grown organically over time, in the same way that a small hamlet evolves.
Located in an idyllic location, Orchard Gate is surrounded by farmland with distant views of the North Downs.
Nearby, you’ll find East Malling and its ‘twin’, the market town of West Malling, which share plenty of history. This is evident in the buildings and the delightful setting amongst the traditional orchards of the Kent countryside.
Situated at the foot of the North Downs, you have easy access to the surrounding towns, with Maidstone to the East, Sevenoaks to the West and Tonbridge and Royal Tunbridge Wells to the South. By car, you are close to the M20, M26 and M25, whilst there are stations at both East Malling and West Malling, with a regular service to London Victoria in around an hour.
The area is steeped in history. Nearby Bradbourne House is now used as a stunning venue for weddings and conferences, but this Grade II listed building set in 20 acres of beautiful parkland complete with lake and ancient trees, was originally built in Tudor times. In 1938 it was purchased by the East Malling Trust for Horticultural Research charity, which still owns it today and supports horticultural research at the nearby world-famous East Malling Research Station.
Nearby East and West Malling offer a range of amenities, and you won’t have to go far to find some of Kent’s best restaurants and gastro pubs.
