About our home

Our house won the Daily Telegraph Home of the Year award in 1993. We installed a new kitchen-diner in 2016 and new bathrooms in 2015 and there is plenty of space for a large family. We have lived here since 2010 and we love it!

The house is located at the end of a private driveway in a very quiet location, ideal for country walks and day-trips to London and the garden is full of beautiful and unusual plants. On the top floor is a separate double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. There are four toilets and 3 bathrooms in total. We can also arrange to lend you our car and bicycles if required. Gatwick airport is 30 minutes away by car, Heathrow is 50 minutes. Sevenoaks is a popular commuter town near London and there are many beautiful villages and country houses within 10 miles including Knole Park, Penshurst, Hever Castle and Ightham Mote. There is a fast and regular train service to London Bridge, London Waterloo East or London Charing Cross, which takes between 25-35 minutes. We particularly enjoy going for country walks on Oldbury Hill, Bitchet Green or in Seal Chart, which can be reached either on foot or in 5 minutes by car.

The garden is dog-proof, so we will accept families with well-behaved dogs. If you enjoy running or bike-riding, the house is particularly well located.
