Preserve and protect
Evabourne is set against a naturally stunning backdrop, surrounded by the quintessentially English landscape of rural Kent. Beautiful year-round, the Kent Downs come to life spectacularly in the spring and summer months when the winding footpaths and woodland trails burst into colour with blossoms and wildflowers marking the changing of the seasons and the renewal of the landscape.
It’s no surprise then to find that the Garden of England is home to an extraordinary array of wildlife. Indeed, the abundance and variety of animal and bird life, flora and fauna are fundamental aspects of life in the village.
Nearby, Blue Bell Hill exemplifies this. Whether standing above the clouds on a winters morning or watching the last rays of sun striking reds, purple and gold across the valley there is always something fantastical about this place.
Situated next door to Burham Down Reserve the chalk grassland, scrub and woodland sits high up with panoramic views across to Leybourne and West Malling. Evabourne’s location will also afford residents easy access to perennial Kentish coastal gems such as Whitstable and the epic vistas at Sandwich Bay. Here the fruit de mer and fresh sea air provide a tonic to the pace of modern life.
Bordering Evabourne is Peters Pit, designated a Nature Reserve by Natural England due to its standing as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. New residents will count amongst their neighbours the rare Great Crested Newt, various types of orchid, the Adonis Blue Butterfly and the Marsh Mallow Moth – Peters Village being one of only two locations in the UK where this species can be found.
*The Nature Reserve is managed in partnership by site developer Trenport, Natural England
and The Kent Wildlife Trust. It is not currently open to the public.
