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.

Still missing out on your copy of Conservation News? You can request your own copy by post.
