The 10 best park home sites in Kent

Situated in the south-east of England and bordering Greater London to the north-west, Kent is the country’s oldest county.

For many years, the landscape diversity in Kent has made it one of the most desirable places to live in the UK, young and old.

With stunning, unspoilt countryside, gorgeous coastlines and easy transport connections to and from London, it’s easy to see why many choose to settle here.

Research suggests there are currently more than 330,000 people aged 65 and over living in Kent, so it’s hardly surprising that park homes in Kent are popular, too.

Whether you’re currently looking at making the switch to park home living or are likely to be sometime in the future, there are lots of park home sites in Kent to explore. Not only that, but Kent is a beautiful county to reside in—just ask its residents.

In no particular order, here are 10 of the best park home sites in Kent.

 

Woodlands Estate, Canterbury

Phone: 01227 374381

Surrounded by the conservation area of Blean Woods is the idyllic Woodlands Estate.

As the name might suggest, residents on the Woodlands Estate have direct access to various woodland walks and footpaths—making it an ideal spot for relaxed, retirement living and socialising with other like-minded folk.

The historic cathedral city and UNESCO World Heritage Site of Canterbury is also a short bus ride away from the estate, as is the seaside town of Whitstable, so you can remain well connected to the local amenities while maintaining a 24/7 holiday feel at home—what’s not to love?

The estate can house both single and twin unit park homes, most of which boast gorgeous countryside views.

 

Longbeech Park, Ashford

Phone: 01233 713756

As a park home resident, or soon-to-be resident, we know you enjoy a much slower pace of life, and that’s exactly what’s on offer at the adult-only (45+) Longbeech Park near Ashford.

Residing here provides all the peace and tranquillity you’d expect from countryside park home living while still having easy links to the hustle and bustle of London and beyond.

The park sits on the doorstep of Charing, a quaint village often referred to as a ‘flower in the garden of England’, with Canterbury and the town of Ashford also nearby.

As a resident of Longbeech Park, you’re also perfectly placed to explore Kent Downs—an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. From trail walks to riverside picnics, you’d never get bored calling this place your home.

 

Beckenham Park, Rainham

Phone: 0330 133 7300

Beckenham Residential Park is a well sought-after site beside the picturesque Otterham Quay.

Like many of the park home sites in Kent, it offers an excellent balance between serenity and bustle thanks to its proximity to the town of Rainham.

Whatever you’re into, Rainham has plenty to offer, from retail therapy to a spot of lunch in its many independent restaurants.

There are lots of small villages dotted about this part of Kent, but the Hempstead Valley shopping centre offers a modern and vibrant retail experience if that’s more your thing.

Back on site, homes are available in various layouts and boast beautiful views of the Quay. The park home community here is ever-growing, too. The newly-built Otterham Residential Park recently opened just next door.

 

Kingsdown Meadow, Sevenoaks

Phone: 0800 644 4499

Kingsdown Meadow, just a few minutes down the road from the ever-popular town of Sevenoaks, offers everything you could want from a park home site.

With such peaceful surroundings, it’s hard to imagine you’re only about half an hour away from central London, but the park provides the perfect balance needed for park home living.

There’s plenty of outdoor space on-site for socialising and plenty to do in and around the local area, too.

Knole Park is within walking distance of Kingsdown Meadow, while keen cricket fans will know that The Vine in Sevenoaks is one of the oldest cricket grounds in England. The ground is currently the home venue of Kent Cricket League side Sevenoaks Vine.

Kingsdown residents can also use a direct ‘taxi bus’ service into Sevenoaks, courtesy of Kent County Council. The off-peak Monday-Friday service costs £3 for a single trip or £5 for a return.

 

Prince of Wales Residential Park, West Hythe

Phone: 01233 733880

The Prince of Wales Residential Park in West Hythe is a calm, 31-home community that sits quietly against a backdrop of Kent’s gorgeous rolling hills and marshland.

A mere stone’s throw from Folkestone and Deal, the Prince of Wales is perfectly placed for those seeking the best of both worlds—a mixture of country and coast. In fact, you’ll arguably find some of Kent’s most interesting countryside upon the marshy terrain around here.

The park is also relatively close to the small market town of New Romney, which, historically, was a sea port. Nowadays, it’s more than a mile from the sea, but still worth a visit for its historical relevance. The old mooring ring can still be seen in front of the town’s church tower.

Most luxury park homes on-site at the Prince of Wales come fully fitted with everything you need to live comfortably, so you’re bound to find something that catches your eye.

 

Reculver Court, Herne Bay

Phone: 01227 934160

This beautiful coastal development off Herne Bay is one of Kent’s best-kept park home secrets.

With an indoor swimming pool, coffee lounge and tea garden all on-site for resident access, you don’t even have to leave the community gates to enjoy a bit of RnR.

You’re also pretty spoilt for choice should you wish to venture out. Various picturesque coastal walks along the bay start from within the estate itself, and there are facilities for cycling, fishing, horse-riding, golf, and even sailing nearby.

Most of Reculver Court’s luxury two-bedroom park homes each have their own garden and private parking area, too. If that wasn’t enough—the King Ethelbert Inn is practically next door if you fancy a tipple.

 

Hartridge Farm, Maidstone

Phone: 01622 726360

In the beautiful village of East Farleigh, just three miles from the county town of Maidstone, lies Hartridge Farm, on the quiet banks of the River Medway.

Hartridge Farm can accommodate single and twin unit park homes with residents treated to gorgeous views of the river and its surrounds with exclusive access for fishing, too.

The site is well connected to local public transport links as well, with bus and train stations all within a mile.

Nearby Maidstone is right at the heart of Kent, too, making this the perfect spot to settle in the South East and experience the best the county has to offer. From historic castles, strikingly green countryside and the bustle of the region’s major towns, it could all be on your doorstep.

 

Restavon Park, Biggin Hill

Phone: 01306 711270

Although Biggin Hill technically now sits in the London Borough of Bromley, it was historically part of Kent, and today, Restavon Park provides a real ‘best of both worlds’ approach to park home living.

The park is amidst glorious woodland just east of Biggin Hill. Residents can enjoy a safe, secure and scenic environment while still remaining within easy reach of central London thanks to frequent train services to and from the nearby stations in Orpington and Bromley.

Life at Restavon Park is suitable for all ages, and unlike most other park home sites in Kent and elsewhere, there are no resident age restrictions in place here, and pets are also permitted (within limits, of course).

There are plenty of interesting things to see and do in these parts.

The local airfield is famed for its role in the Battle of Britain, and Biggin Hill Airport is still open for light private flights today. Its exclusive helicopter shuttle service can drop you in central London in just six minutes.

 

Applegarth Park, Whitstable

 

Phone: 01227 272986

Always dreamed of living a relaxed life by the sea? This coastal residential park is less than a mile from the beach and can accommodate both single and twin unit park homes.

As well as the beach, the park is also just a few miles from the town of Whitstable—renowned for its working harbour, seafood, and bohemian vibe.

Applegarth Park’s location means its residents are able to enjoy lovely views across the Swale Estuary and even up the bordering Essex coast on particularly clear days.

Faversham and Canterbury are also reachable via local buses, so, as with most of the park homes in Kent, you’re well connected to the rest of the county and beyond.

 

Four Seasons Park, Sevenoaks

Phone: 01732 590757

Last but not least in our round-up of park homes in Kent is the beautifully secluded Four Seasons Park, tucked away unassumingly just behind the busy M20.

Strictly a 45+ only site, the luxury park homes here are available fully furnished and include maintenance and water costs as part of your standard ground rent.

The site is quiet, calm, and protected by round-the-clock CCTV for added peace of mind. The site owner, Home From Home Living, is a family-run company that understands your living needs to a tee.
