About Orbit at The Meadows
Launching Summer 2021
We are delighted to present Orbit at The Meadows, a vibrant development in the idyllic village of Staplehurst, perfectly positioned in the Weald of Kent. All homes are available to buy through the Government-backed Help to Buy: Shared Ownership Scheme subject to eligibility, terms and conditions.
For those who like the best of both worlds, you’ll be pleased to know that Staplehurst is within easy reach of the coast and London. Large towns are also close by and within 10 miles of Maidstone, 17 miles of Tunbridge Wells and under 20 miles from Ashford.
Essential items are easy to come by with big brand supermarkets such as Sainsburys, SPAR and Morrisons Daily found on the high street. Fresh local produce is also available from the Henhurst Farm Shop, Staplehurst Nurseries & Frankie’s Farmshop, as well as Crouch Butchers.
You can expect lots of activities to keep you busy due to its great location. Visit the National Trust’s Sissinghurst Castle Garden, take a tour at Balfour Winery, explore amazing animals at The Big Cat Sanctuary or enjoy the outdoors at Moat Park, Bedgebury Forest and much more!
