Hearts Delight House

Heart's Delight is a settlement located to the south of Sittingbourne in Kent, England. Heart's Delight Road, leading to it, has the postal address of Tunstall.

According to Edward Hasted, in 1798, Heart's Delight was a small hamlet in the parish of Borden. Wrens farm was an estate in 1664 (but called 'Rains Farm') and was owned by a squire from Tunstall.[1]

It has 4 listed buildings in the village, 'Hearts Delight House' (Grade II listed),[2] 'Filmer House' (also Grade II listed),[3]'Sharp's House' (also Grade II) [4] and 'Wren's Farmhouse' (also Grade II listed).[5]

There is a similarly-known settlement near Barham in the City of Canterbury district of Kent
