Set in 28 acres of distinctive Kent countryside, Kent Life offers a stunning historical record of rural life in the ‘Garden of England’.

Step back in time as you explore our collection of historic buildings saved from demolition and carefully reassembled at Kent Life – and meet the colourful characters that lived and worked here.

Stroll through the gardens; discover what herbs you would find in a traditional farm kitchen garden, explore the last hand picked hop garden in the country, and see the only working coal fired Oast House in Britain. Ramble along the wildlife discovery trail or just take time to explore the orchard.

Refresh the sense and relax in the light and bright Dotty’s Tea Room – treat yourself to a homemade cake amidst the wonderful 1950’s themed surroundings. Special menus and discount are available for pre-booked groups.
