This weekend (04 February), the doors will officially open to Farmstead at Tannersbrook, an idyllic new countryside address in Kent’s picturesque town of Cranbrook. Set amid the rolling hills, woodlands and streams of the High Weald AONB, Farmstead is a gated collection of 28 private three- and four- bedroom homes, alongside a five-bedroom farmhouse, all within a rich, mature landscape of green spaces and ponds. The launch will also see the unveiling of the site’s first show home – providing the first opportunity for prospective residents to step inside this great new development.
Cranbrook: the undiscovered postcard village, surrounded by greenspace
Farmstead is conveniently situated just moments from the quaint town of Cranbrook and is a short drive from nearby Royal Tunbridge Wells. Known as the ‘Capital of the Weald’, Cranbrook is a medieval village that benefits from a plethora of everyday amenities. Cranbrook has over 60 shops, including an artisanal farm shop selling local produce, a family-owned butchers and a post office – making it the perfect place to buy everyday essentials. Additionally, the town also offers plenty of places to eat and drink, including the famous Waterloo House Tea Rooms, the stylish George Hotel & Brasserie, alongside an array of boutique cafés and cosy pubs – ensuring there is something for everyone.
Thanks to Kent’s reputation as the Garden of England, residents at Farmstead will have the rare opportunity to be truly immersed in the picturesque English countryside, with rural views that extend across the High Weald in every direction. To the east of Farmstead lies the wide expanse of Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest, and to the north is Vera Sackville-West’s famed Sissinghurst Castle Garden, with its high tower offering views across themed gardens that are now tended by the National Trust. Due west is the ever-popular Chapel Down Vineyard.
Modern design and efficiencies with traditional Kent architecture
The distinctive houses at Farmstead have been inspired by the local Kentish architecture, and each home has been thoughtfully designed to respect the countryside surroundings, providing traditional homes with a contemporary twist.
Homes offer a warm, bright sense of arrival, thanks to generous living areas that are filled with natural light. Quality wood-effect flooring, Shaker-style cabinetry, Belfast-style sinks, and state-of-the-art Bosch appliances in the kitchens bring a classic country feel, befitting the setting, combined with the benefits of modern design and convenience. Each home is also fitted with high-speed broadband connectivity as standard, making them well equipped for home working. Properties are also highly energy efficient and sustainable by design, featuring both communal and private EV charging points.
Exceptional education and convenient connections
Kent is one of the few English counties that has kept the grammar school system – including the highly sought-after Cranbrook School, a boarding and day grammar school just moments from Farmstead. Families with younger pupils will have their pick of several first-rate local primary schools, including Goudhurst & Kilndown C of E Primary School – rated Outstanding by Ofsted.
Thanks to convenient transport connections, residents at Farmstead will be able to stay closely connected to nearby towns, including Staplehurst and Tunbridge Wells, with the bus stop located just 100 yards away. From Staplehurst station residents will be able to reach London Bridge in under an hour on frequent direct rail services.
