On our land registry certificate it states that no fence, hedge, wall or other physical division shall be erected or grown between us and our neighbours. However, our neighbours are constantly using our drive to get the children in and out of the car and the children play on our frontage. We have tried talking to them but to no avail, any solutions please.

Most covenants on properties are widely ignored. For example, no house on the estate where I live is permitted to have an external TV aerial but they all have. Similarly, all front gardens must be 'laid mainly to lawn' but the vast majority of them have been paved over to provide car parking spaces. The covenants here are in favour of the property developers,...

you could try to erect something cheap that you wouldn't mind too much getting rid of idf yu were made too. Or park your car right up to their bit

Similarly, all front gardens must be 'laid mainly to lawn' but the vast majority of them have been paved over to provide car parking spaces. The covenants here are in favour of the property developers, Barratt Homes, who clearly have no interest whatsoever in enforcing them (as it's half a century since they built the estate), so they can be freely ignored.

The covenant on your property might be similarly unenforceable, particularly if it was created many years ago. So you might be free to ignore it anyway.

I agree with Chris about Covenants. In law, you have to determine who has "the benefit" of the covenant. In many cases, it's pretty irrelevant.

One thing though....... if this is the entrance from the road, take care that it's not a restriction for safety reasons. i.e. a fence that might obscure the view on pulling out into the road.
take a couple of chairs and a flask of coffee out and sit and enjoy your elevenses on their frontage? maybe with a portable radio?
