Why rent in Maidstone?
There are still several micro-breweries in the town, which is well served by many characterful pubs. There’s also a growing number of fine restaurants and fashionable bars, while nearly all major retailers have a presence in the town. With its two major shopping centres and riverside Lockmead Centre, Maidstone is also ranked as one of the top five shopping destinations in the South-East.
Culturally, you have your pick of four theatres, including the renowned Hazlitt Theatre, and there are also several museums and art galleries. Notable residents have included William Hazlitt (author of Rural Rides), the illustrator Ralph Steadman, Journalist Robert Fisk, Vision On presenter and artist Tony Hart, and actress Samantha Giles. Educationally, it’s very well served, with many good primary and secondary schools, including several grammar schools. There’s also a regional campus to the west for the University of the Creative Arts.
From the point of view of property, Maidstone is essentially a town of two halves, with commercial and retail locations on one side and most residential properties on the other. The latter includes some fine Georgian and Victorian townhouses, plus many conversions, and there are lots of little corners of attractive terrace houses.
There are a lot of two-bedroom flats available, as well as studios and one-bed apartments, while three-bedroom flats are not as common. There are, however, plenty of houses, both period and modern, with the latter more prevalent on the outskirts.
Popular areas of the town include Bearsted and Weavering, while other noted areas for period properties include East Farleigh and Barming. Slightly further afield, we also act as letting agents in West Malling and East Malling, as well as Aylesford.

We chose Redlet because of their reasonable charges and went for the full monthly management option. Ed found us a suitable tenant quickly and accompanied all viewings. It is early days but so far Ed has done everything required quickly and efficiently, he has kept us informed at all times and paid the first months rent promptly. We are looking forward to our ongoing relationship with Redlet.
