Staplehurst primary school

Local school children at Staplehurst Primary School were challenged to take part in naming our new development based on the history of the surrounding area.

The winning name Dickens Gate was dreamed up by a class of children, who named the development after Charles Dickens. Dickens himself was in a train crash near Staplehurst station in June 1865, now an important piece of local history.

About the area

A fantastic location

In Staplehurst, just 9 miles south of the vibrant town of Maidstone via the A229, you'll get to appreciate all that village life has to offer, yet still be able to enjoy a cosmopolitan lifestyle. Maidstone offers plenty of entertainment, thriving business and fabulous shopping. And if it's the best of British seaside you're after, many popular coastal towns are less than an hour away.

Essentials on your doorstep

Make the most of village life with a local convenience store, shops, local pub, small library, butchers, international cuisine and a medical centre all on your doorstep. And with Staplehurst Station within walking distance, offering direct trains to London Bridge in less than an hour, the City is never far away. 

Superior design

Our homes are built to offer you smart features such as high levels of insulation, quality workmanship and construction techniques, plus a selection of new materials to ensure the lowest ecological impact ratings are achieved. Our homes are fitted with energy efficient white goods, low energy lighting, and the living areas are often designed to face south for maximum use of natural light.
