Mersham

Mersham, pronounced ‘Merzam’ by the locals is a small, friendly village dating back to Saxon times.


A village in close proximity to the historic market town of Ashford, it was previously owned by the Archbishops of Canterbury for more than 500 years.

The main street that runs through the village includes some lovely historical period buildings including the popular Royal Oak pub.

Despite being just 5 minutes away from junction 10 of the M20, Mersham has managed to retain its village feel whilst being ideally situated for commuters.
Mersham is a great place for families and for those who need easy access to Ashford, London or the Continent.

A small community in its own right, Mersham offers a good mix of family houses and a friendly, safe atmosphere. Children can walk down the hill to the primary school and can play at the playing fields or at the excellent sports club at the bottom of the village.

Mersham sports club plays host to a variety of sports clubs including the football and cricket clubs which caters for all ages run by enthusiastic members. There is also a thriving village hall where many clubs and activities are held.

In the village centre there is a well stocked shop as well as two very good pubs. The Royal Oak is a more traditional Kentish pub whereas The Farriers Inn is a more unique pub as it is owned and run by a large group of village stakeholders. The Farriers Arms offers very good food and a nice garden by the river with a great beer festival in the summer – one not to be missed!

Locally to the village of Mersham there is an award-winning restaurant called The Secret Garden at Mersham Le Hatch along with a small business/retail village where you can eat and shop at a more leisurely pace.
