Hollingbourne is a village with a population of around 900 souls and nestles under the North Downs some five miles to the east of Maidstone.
Hollingbourne is a historic village noted for its superb landscape where ancient buildings add to the rural heritage. Springs from the North Downs give rise to tributaries that join the River Len; these springs feed mill streams and ponds, and their neighbouring meadowland and woods, all of which have ensured Hollingbourne’s historic prosperity. Prehistoric routes add to this scene: the North Downs Way and Pilgrim’s Way pass east-west along the Downs. Its status as nationally cherished land is confirmed by its designation as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
