Heritage and family fun sit side by side in Kent Lifeís beautiful and historical 28 acre grounds, which will appeal to history buffs, nostalgia seekers and children of all ages.

Tucked away on the outskirts of Maidstone just off junction 6 of the M20, it is home to Britainís last working coal-fired Oast House and a range of period-dressed historic buildings - saved from destruction from around the region and perfectly rebuilt piece-by-piece on site.

A real working farm, Kent Life showcases and breeds traditional farm animals including sheep, cows, pigs, horses, alpacas, rabbits, goats, ducks and chickens and the hands-on cuddle corner is always popular with visitors.

Farmhouse gardens, apple orchards, and a nature trail also occupy this hidden gem. Family fun comes in a vast array of options including indoor and outdoor play areas, donkey rides, pottery studio, junior electric quad bikes, tractor rides and much more!

Open all seasons, events and activities run all year round especially during holidays and weekends.

We look forward to sharing our slice of Kent with you.
