With roots stretching back to the 1960's, the company has seen some exceptional growth in the last few years as more and more of the county's residents discover the Pentland difference.

They are committed to excellent customer service standards, and dedicated to pushing the development of contemporary housing design, which continue to meet the ever-changing requirements and demands of modern living.


The City of Canterbury, with its world-famous cathedral (a UNESCO world heritage site) has a pleasantly unexpected cosmopolitan feel to it, with a bustling city centre which offers a wide array of High Street brands, independent retailers, fine pubs, restaurants and eateries.

The city lies on the River Stour and boasts three universities plus several other higher education institutions and colleges which contributes to the city having the highest student to permanent resident ratio in the UK. However, Canterbury remains a small city in terms of geographical size and population when compared with other British cities.

A popular tourist destination, historical Canterbury is consistently one of the most-visited cities in the United Kingdom, with the city's economy heavily reliant upon tourism. The city is home to many ancient structures including a city wall founded in Roman times and rebuilt in the 14th century, the ruins of St Augustine's Abbey and a Norman castle, and the oldest extant school in the world, the King's School.

Modern additions include the St Lawrence Ground, home of the Kent County Cricket Club and the Marlowe Theatre, named after the city's famous son Christopher Marlowe, has been built on the river bank.

The city is served by a regular rail service to London Victoria, Charing Cross and Cannon Street and the high speed rail link connects with London's St Pancras from Canterbury West station in just under one hour, making this an ideal destination for commuters. However, the city is surrounded by some beautiful countryside, with many footpaths and bridleways, also ideal for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits.
