Museum of Kent Life Cobtree: The Museum of Kent Life is a place where you can discover the rich and vibrant history of the people who lived and worked in the Garden of England over the past 150 years. It is a place where you can step back in time and re-discover the rural life of Kent on our beautiful 28 acre farm, leaving behind the modern world and experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of country life in Kent. As you stand beside the Oast house in the middle of our site, it's hard to believe that Maidstone town centre is only a few minutes away.
