The Garden of England

Orchard Farm is located in Kennington on the northern edge of Ashford, five miles from the historic village of Wye, in Kent in south east England.

Gentle hills, fertile farmland and cultivated country estates with fruit filled orchards cover the area which is known as the Garden of England. Iconic Kent oast houses also dot the landscape and were historically used as a location to dry hops ready for the brewing process.

Orchard Farm is a local hidden gem, shaped by its secluded landscape qualities formed by a gentle fall of the land, capturing spectacular views, mature trees and hedges and a tree-lined track. 


  • The Orchard Farm site covers 5.7 hectares, about 14 football pitches
  • Located behind Stubbs Restaurant, on the Canterbury Road
  • Allocated for housing in the Ashford Borough Council Local Plan
  • Adjacent to an agricultural site being developed by Redrow. We aim to create a very different offer on our site without turning our back on this large development or to the existing community in Kennington
