Period Homes – Renovations – Interiors – Gardens – Food

Conservation News Kent is a quarterly niche publication, covering subjects that are of interest to all homeowners but with special emphasis on period and listed properties.

We pride ourselves in offering a broad mix of interesting and informative articles on all aspects of building conservation, renovations, interior design and exterior inspiration, with regular garden and lifestyle features. We also have a comprehensive Food & Drinks section with local restaurants, wines, farm shops and farmers markets along with some yummy recipes.

The majority of our A5 glossy magazines are posted via Royal Mail to a large database of Grade I & II Listed Buildings, key conservation areas and prestigious homes in and around Kent, with the remainder available for you to pick up a copy throughout our distribution area in selected Estate Agents, Hotels, Coffee Shops and Public Buildings.
