Whitstable

One of Kent’s most celebrated and stylish seaside towns, usually sought after as a weekend break, is actually where you should be considering to set up home due to its coastal setting, foodie reputation and community spirit.

Folkestone

This once down-at-heel port town continues to undergo a remarkable regeneration.

Faversham

This pretty market town is one to watch as an investment due to its growing reputation as a foodie destination, stunning scenery all around (from coastal rambles to countryside walks) and decent train links to London.

Deal

Definitely one that’s on the up-and-up.

West Malling

With a pretty, period heart this market town offers a perfect mix of modern dining alongside Medieval character.

Tunbridge Wells

It might not be as trendy as some of its east Kent cousins, but long-popular Royal Tunbridge Wells is a sure bet for families seeking homes with bigger gardens, plenty of great outdoors and the added attraction of exceptional schooling for free in the area’s many prestigious grammar schools.

Goudhurst

Nestled at the top of a hill is this beauty spot of a Kentish village, complete with white weatherboarding, oast houses and a duck pond.

Sevenoaks

Craving the rolling hills of rural west Kent but still want an easy commute into London and a busy social scene?.
