Why move to Swanley?

Swanley and it's surrounding villages is a versatile area that incorporates both urban living with the countryside. There are many places of interest and lots of areas to explore.


Location

Some fantastic locations in and around Swanley are the hump-back bridge alongside the ford through the river Darent, the grandiose Lullingstone Castle with its award winning gardens and the historic Lullingstone Roman Villa thought to date back to 82 AD. Eynsford and Farningham's larger neighbour, West Kingsdown, is almost completely surrounded by woodland, shielding it from the sounds and excitement of the nearby Brands Hatch Circuit. It offers a mix of semi-rural village life and rural unadopted roads alike. Crockenhill is a beautiful little gem surrounded by green open fields and patches of woodland, built on a history of pottery and tile production.

Today's thriving village has a strong sense of community and identity, fiercely protected by the locals. On the opposite side of Swanely you can find Hextable, surrounded by nurseries, garden centres and small farms. Hextable is built around the village green rather than the usual ale house as it's possibly the only village in England without a pub! But don't worry you don't have to go too far to find one and there's certainly no lack of other amenities, all in all a great village for families.
