Latest reviews | Events in Bearsted | 10 Places to Stay

Just a few miles east of busy Maidstone, the ancient village of Bearsted is like a different world, a place where cricketers still play on the green surrounded by charming houses, cottages, oasts and inns. Some of these have special historic interest including The Limes, originally a medieval hall house, and Snowfield House, once home to Baroness Emmuska Orczy, author of "The Scarlet Pimpernel". A windmill once stood high behind Snowfield. Bearsted has a long cricketing history: its village sign features a painting of the late Alfred Mynn, "The Lion of Kent" who pioneered over-arm bowling, at the wicket in his best whites. Other sports enjoyed here include tennis, badminton, bowls and football. Overlooked by the scenic North Downs, Bearsted has bundles of country character with a village pond, leafy lanes and some sixteen acres of woodland, now being run as a nature reserve protecting animals and plants. However, a threat to this delightful and quiet rural atmosphere has emerged with the proposal to build an industrial estate, covering four million square feet, on the surrounding green land. The people of Bearsted, and nearby villages such as Thurnham, are campaigning against the plans. A decision is due in 2008.
