Setting the scene…
Welcome to Liberty Park, an impressive development of new homes set around a large area of public open space. The scheme has been meticulously designed and developed from planning to completion to provide distinctive homes that are practical, stylish and ideal for anyone looking to live in a much sought-after part of the Kent countryside.
Wainscott was once famously immortalised in Dickens’ Great Expectations and was also the template used by early American settlers for the self-styled hamlet in Suffolk County, New York. From those early days in history, Wainscott has blossomed into a flourishing community, surrounded by buzzing town centres and beautiful natural landscapes.
A place called home
A home at Liberty Park is much more than a property. It’s the place you look forward to coming home to, where you feel secure, comfortable and relaxed, part of a community, surrounded by friends. It’s easy to understand why Liberty Park is considered one of the most sought-after addresses in the region.
Achieving the delicate balance between work and play is made that much easier by the close proximity to London and other south-east centres. So whether you are a first time buyer, or have a family and are looking to become part of a vibrant community, Crest Nicholson has the answer. Even commuters seeking a convenient base or couples looking to downsize after the children have moved on, Liberty Park has something for everyone.

With almost 350 stores and eateries to choose from, you won’t be stuck for something to see, do or taste. And when you’re ready for a night out, the area has a lively mix of music, theatre and cinema, as well as an enticing selection of cafés, bars, pubs and restaurants to suit every budget and occasion.
When you want to relax, catch up with friends, get away from it all or enjoy a family day out, Liberty Park is within easy reach of many places of interest and fun – museums, galleries, the historical dockyards at Chatham, even an indoor ski slope – not to mention the acres of picturesque parkland, ancient woodland and open countryside.
The area also has superb leisure facilities and there’s more than enough for those who prefer the outdoor life. As well as a variety of local sports clubs, gyms and golf courses, including Deangate Ridge in Hoo, you can also take in some county cricket in Tunbridge Wells, Canterbury or Beckenham or watch the Blues at Gillingham’s Priestfield Park.
Out and about
While the village has its own small range of amenities, if your idea of fun is going out on the town, then the surrounding Medway towns of Strood, Rochester, Chatham and Gillingham won’t disappoint. From fashionable to individual, there are shops just waiting to be explored. You’re also just a short distance from shopping paradise at Bluewater, Europe’s largest shopping and leisure venue.
Schools and education
And for those with children, the area has a choice of well-regarded schools including Wainscott Primary School, Kings School and The Hundred of Hoo Comprehensive School.
- Wainscott Primary School (0.1 miles)
- Hilltop Primary School (0.7 miles)
- Chattenden Primary School (0.8 miles)
Liberty Park is ideally located for getting about. By car, it’s a comfortable driving distance to all Medway Towns and the M2 and M25 provide direct access into the capital. Or if you prefer to let the train take the strain, mainline stations at Strood and Rochester provide regular services to London (Charing Cross, Cannon Street and Blackfriars) in around an hour or, alternatively, Kings Ferry Coaches provide a daily commuter service to London. And if you have to travel further afield for business or pleasure, London Heathrow and London Gatwick Airports are within an hour’s drive.
