Buss Farm in Ashford has been put on the market for £1.35 million

A Kent farm in which a television favourite was filmed has been put up for sale.

Buss Farm, which was used for the Darling Buds of May in the 1990s, has been put up on the market by its owner and has been valued at £1.35 million.

Stars such as David Jason and Catherine Zeta-Jones played characters in the popular drama series which ran for three series.

The Grade II listed property comes with 20 acres of land, a square kiln oast and a Tudor Barn.

Owner Roger Holmes has decided to put the farm up for sale due to financial reasons, and it is believed the property will be snapped up by a sentimental viewer.

The Darling Buds of May, which was set in rural Kent in the 1950s, was broadcast between 1991 and 1993, and was based on novels by H.E. Bates.

Many fans of the series, which is considered by some to be a comedy, still visit the county to reminisce about the television classic.
