Eynsford is a pretty, historic village, conveniently located about 3 miles from the M25/M20 and with its own station (London St Pancras in about 1 hour; London Victoria via Otford in about 45/50 minutes; Charing Cross via Sevenoaks in about 1 hour).
The village is well worth a visit as it has the River Darenth running through it with some delightful country and riverside walks, picturesque buildings, local shops and public houses. Eynsford even has its own castle ruin, ford and viaduct. Lullingstone Country Park, Lullingstone Castle and World Garden and Brands Hatch are also nearby.

Eynsford has a local pre-school and primary school (Anthony Roper - rated "good" Ofsted 2015), and there are alternatives in the surrounding villages. There are grammar schools at Orpington, Dartford and Tonbridge and several private and preparatory schools in Sevenoaks, Otford, Swanley and Orpington, and secondary schools in Swanley, Longfield and Dartford.
Hillcroft is a substantial, double fronted, detached family house, believed to date back to the early 1900s (c1907). It occupies a convenient position on the south side of the village, near the station, and enjoys an outlook to the rear over its own garden and countryside beyond.
