Kent Life is a vibrant and fun destination with host of attractions on it's 28 acre site which offer a great family day out. It explores the history of Kent through its food production and farming heritage. No matter whether your family are seeking nostalgia or want to discover more about animals, this is a great place to be.
Each season brings new and different things to do and see, so whenever you chose to visit there will be something different. The now unique and only working coal-fired Oast House is fired up in the autumn for drying hops and the traditional process of beer making begins. There are lots of family friendly farm animals, play and picnic areas, wonderful vintage tea room and historic houses and buildings to explore.
The easy to reach location, just off the M20 at Junction 6, makes Kent Life Heritage Farm Attraction easily accessible by car or from Maidstone East Station, either catch the boat or it is a short taxi ride.
Explore what life would have been like during World War II, by making your way through the houses and to the Anderson Shelter. Discover what shopping was like during a different era, when only ingredients were sold in brown paper bags and people made everything they had to eat from scratch. It was a time with no ready meals and you went to the shop with a basket.
The atmosphere in the Village Hall and the Church remain, as the walls seem to have absorbed the sense of community and magic, through the celebrations which they have shared.
As a 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.
It is possible to join in doing some of the seasonal farm jobs such as bottle feeding lambs, feeding the pigs or collecting eggs. Brushing the horses and donkey’s are jobs which need doing all year and are for most people something out of the ordinary.
The Play Area
Including indoor and outdoor play areas amuse and generate a lot of fun, donkey rides, the pottery studio, tractor rides, junior electric quad bikes, and much more bring a uniqueness to the experience at Kent Life.
Open all seasons, events and activities run all year round especially during holidays and weekends.
Tea Rooms and Refreshments
Finish your visit with a trip to Dotty’s Tea Room, which has great cake and snack and is decorated in a 1950’s vintage style or sit in the shade under fruit trees in the garden. Enjoy that mmmmm.. of a lovely hot cup of tea.
