Traditional English farmhouse with converted oast house near Darling Buds Of ...

A quintessentially English farmhouse and converted oast house that has gone on the market for £1.5m is the ideal home for fans of the Darling Buds of May.

Groome Farm is situated between the Kent villages of Egerton and Pluckley which was the filming location for the popular David Jason 1990s comedy drama.

On the outside the pretty property looks like it could have been plucked straight from the TV show but inside it has undergone a modern refurbishment.

It is now on the market with estate agents BTF Partnership for £1.495m, and has a swimming pool and paddock land in the six acres of grounds.

The converted farm house and oast house in Kent is on the outskirts of the village of Pluckley, which was the 'Sidcup' of classic 90s comedy drama the Darling Buds of May

Pluckley doubled as Sidcup in the ITV comedy drama which starred David Jason and Pam Ferris and launched Catherine Zeta-Jones' film career.

The village remains unspoilt and picturesque and still attracts fans of the show, alongside ghost hunters - it held a Guinness Record for being the most haunted village in Britain, with 12 different ghosts reported there.

Darling Buds of May was adapted from the 1958 novel of the same name by HE Bates and was broadcast from 1991 to 1993.

Home Farm, home to Ma and Pa Larkin and their brood, was actually Buss Farm a few miles south of Pluckley.
