The village of Otham near Maidstone has been in existence since before the time of the Domesday Survey of 1086.  The well-preserved 12th-century parish church of St Nicholas is a Grade I listed building. A walk through Otham reveals a number of other listed properties including Bicknor Farmhouse, Bishops, Gore Court, Madam Taylors, Otham Manor, The Rectory, Stoneacre and Synyards, as well as other cottages, barns and ancient walls. A number of these are near the traditional Village Green, which has a fabulous view of the North Downs.

Stoneacre is a small National Trust property, a perfect example of a 15th century Wealden Hall House. It is a private residence but opened to visitors on Saturdays and Bank Holiday Mondays from April - September.

Otham has a many footpaths through rolling countryside and farmland, including a circular walk of 7 km. Otham is home to The White Horse pub, Bearsted Football Club and Rumwood Cricket Club.
