The village of Collier Street is nestled between Yalding and Laddingford and is set in a rural location. Larger towns such as Paddock Wood and Maidstone, offering local shops and other amenities are also within easy reach.
With five Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ schools with a five mile radius, the area is a popular location for home buyers with families, and also those seeking to combine the best of town and country living in a convenient location.
Historically, the village was situated in the middle of a hop-growing region. Its population swelled during the harvest as whole families, often from South-East London, arrived to help bring in the hops. Today the fields are home to pears, strawberries and raspberries but the area is known more for its apple orchards - Collier Street has been colloquially known as 'The village in an orchard'. Some of the old hoppers' huts can still be found amongst the local orchards, fields and gardens.
