Here at the Swanley branch we feel privileged to be looking after such a fantastically diverse area! We have Swanley town, an explorers paradise with its excellent transport links, just 15 miles Southeast of Central London and within close proximity to the M25, M20, A20 and A2. Whether you need to get the train into London (Swanley station gets you into London Victoria is less than half an hour). Whether you fancy a day by the seaside (drive from Swanley to Whitsable) or you feel the need for some retail therapy (bus from Swanley to Bluewater), Swanley has the links to get you there! If you're looking for a quieter, slower pace, we also have the pleasure of looking after Swanley's rural surroundings including Crockenhill, West Kingsdown, Eynsford, Farningham and Hextable.

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 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 due to it's heavy clay soil with evidence today in roads such a Tyler's Green and the nearby Tile Kilns Wood. 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.
