Location - Location: Honeymellow Barn is situated on a quiet country lane in the sought after village of Boughton Monchelsea. The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Boltone, which means 'where Willows grow'. Commonly known as Quarry Hills, Boughton Monchelsea lies on the ragstone ridge situated between the North Downs and the Weald of Kent. Locally quarried ragstone has been used in construction of some of our national treasures including Westminster Abbey, Rochester Castle and original part of St.Pauls Cathedral. Boughton Monchelsea's Norman church which lies just over the brow of the hill overlooking the Weald beyond, was built in around 1100. The church lychgate was constructed in 1470 and is believed to be the second oldest in the country.
Local Infrastructure: The Village has a few shops and a couple of welcoming historic country inns and further shopping facilities are to be found in nearby Coxheath and Staplehurst. Maidstone is some 4 miles away offering a wider variety of in and out of town shopping centres, supermarkets, theatres, cinemas, restaurants and bars.
Ideally positioned for the commuter is Marden railway station (some 6 miles away) providing services to London Bridge, Waterloo, Charing Cross and Cannon Street. Maidstone East Station provides services to London Victoria in an hour or so. Marden also connects to Ashford International which provides the fast service to St. Pancras and to Europe.
The Motorway network (M20) can be easily accessed at Junction 8 near Hollingbourne or Junctions 4,5,6 & 7 Nr. Maidstone.
