A bright two-bedroomed flat with beds for up to 8 guests. Ideal for families with between 2 and 6 children visiting London for a short city break.
**Folkstone 1hr by car**
**Gatwick 45mn by train**
**Central London 15mn by train**

The Space
The flat has two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and bathroom. The large bedroom has four bunk beds and the small bedroom has a double bed. The living room has comfortable seating for four and a double sofabed; it also has a dining table with four chairs plus four folding chairs. The bathroom has a bathtub with shower. The kitchen has a fridge, oven and four burner hob, plus a washing machine.

Guest Access
Guests have exclusive use of the entire flat: kitchen, bathroom and living room. No one else will be sharing. Guests will have their own keys and will be able to come and go as they please.

Interaction with Guests
I meet guests when they check in, and say good bye when they leave. Apart from that I do not usually meet or socialise with guests. However, once or twice per year Clare and I invite our guests to our home for an evening meal.

The Neighbourhood
Grove Park is a commuter suburb of London. It has shops and cafés clustered around the railway station. Chinbrook Meadows is just around the corner from the railway station and has two play areas for children, tennis courts, and a charming brook meandering through.

Getting around
The walk to Grove park station is 650 metres and takes 5 - 10 minutes. Train links to central London are fast and regular, departing every 15 minutes. For local journeys there is a bus stop opposite the railway station.

Journey times by train to central London are:
London Bridge - 15mn,
Waterloo East - 20mn,
Charing Cross - 25mn.

The last train home leaves Charing Cross at 00:48. If you miss the last train, a night bus leaves every 30 minutes (every 20 minutes Friday and Saturday night) throughout the night from Trafalgar Square to the bus stop opposite Grove Park Station.

An oystercard is the simplest and usually cheapest way to move around London. It is valid on nearly all rail, underground, tram and bus journeys within London (a notable exception is the Heathrow Express). To use an Oystercard you must buy credit, and each time you make a journey the cost of that journey is taken from the credit. But the really good news is that there is a daily price cap. For adults travelling within Zones 1-4 the daily price cap is £7.70. And for children under 16 the daily price cap is £1.50.

On the "Transport for London" website search for "visitor oyster card" to find out how to buy your Oystercards before you travel to London, and how to apply for child photo oystercards for under 16s.

Other Things to Note
We offer a free loan of a travelcot suitable for children under three years.

We can offer an airport transfer service for up to 6 passengers - please email for details.

ottima sistemazione, appartamento confortevole e funzionale.L'arredamento è semplice ma molto curato, l'appartamento è dotato di tutto il necessario. Ci siamo trovati molto bene, due adulti e tre figli (9-12-14). Il quartiere è molto tranquillo e carattestico, la stazione di Grove Park è facilmente raggiungibile a piedi in 5 minuti ed è ben collegata con il centro della città (20 min). Tom è preciso e molto gentile.

Die Wohnung von Tom und Clare ist ideal für einen London-Ausflug für Familien oder meheren Personen bis 6 Personen. Die Wohnung bietet alles was man benötigt. Fußweg zur Bahnstation Grove Park in ca. 8 Minuten. Zur Innenstadt ca. 18 Minuten Bahnfahrt. Einkaufsmöglichkeit direkt gegenüber der Station bis 23 Uhr geöffnet. Ideal, um nach einem ereignisreichen Tag im Londoner Zentrum nochmals das nötigste für das Frühstück am nächsten Morgen zu besorgen. Für Reisende mit PKW gibt es keine Parkplatzsorgen. Parkplatz vor dem Haus ist eigentlich immer gegeben. Wir waren mit einer fünfköpfigen Familie 9 Tage in der Wohnung. Der Aufenthalt war wunderbar. Internet perfekt! Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war sehr nett.

Es war ein toller wenn auch kurzer Aufenthalt bei Tom für zwei Nächte. Er hat uns zuverlässig über Whats's App zu seiner Wohnung gelotst und uns anschließend geduldig verschiedene Fragen beantwortet. Es war das erste Mal dass ich eine Wohnung für einen Städtetrip gemietet habe und ich würde es jederzeit wieder tun. Die Wohnung war sauber, hell und freundlich. Die Lage ist gut mit viel Grün drum herum. Wir sind die Strecke vom der Haltestrecke Grove Park zur Wohnung immer gelaufen und haben auf den Bus verzichtet, denn es ist wirklich nicht weit. Direkt gegenüber der Haltestelle Grove Park ist ein Supermarkt und noch einer bei der Tankstelle, an dem man automatisch vorbeikommt wenn man zur Wohnung geht. Die Preise sind ok. Ich würde diese Wohnung definitiv wieder mieten denn ich finde es gar nicht so schlecht etwas vom Innenstadtkern weg zu wohnen, da es viel ruhiger und entspannter ist. Und es ist definitiv genauso teuer wie sich zu zweit in ein kleines Hotelzimmer zu quetschen. Für das gleiche Geld hatten wir hier eine Wohnung mit 50 qm und konnten uns unabhängig selbst versorgen.

Es war eine schöne Wohnung. mit gutem Preis/Leistungsverhältnis. Die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter lief sehr unkompliziert ab. 5 Leute hatten ausreichend Platz. Bis zum Bahnhof waren es nur 10 min zu Fuß. Alles, inkl. Wifi, hat funktioniert. Die Wohnung ist zu empfehlen.

La casa è posizionata a Londra sud, distante circa mezz'ora dal centro (inteso come Big ben, London Eye etc), ma collegato ottimamente da una stazione dei treni (Grove Park). Per rendere l'idea i treni passano quattro volte ogni ora e si arriva nelle stazioni chiave per muoversi (parlo di London Bridge e Weterloo st o Charing cross) da cui poi, nel caso, c'è l'accesso diretto all'underground.

La casa è perfetta come appoggio: cinque posti letti (matrimoniale e 3 singoli) in due camere, soggiorno luminoso con tavolo per mangiare, due divani e tv, cucina e bagno. Non molto spaziosa ma c'è tutto quello che serve per riposarsi la sera, mangiare qualcosa e uscire presto la mattina.

Il padrone di casa è molto disponibile e pronto ad aiutare anche con consigli sui mezzi.
Molto vivibile in un quartierino tranquillo.

We had a great stay in Tom and Clares flat and in London. There is everything you need around Grove Park Station and the train takes you within 20 min to central London. Excellent! We hope to come back one day.

Our trip to London was very fine. The Flat was clean,friendly and very good located for our daily tours.The children were happy to go only a few minutes to Railway-station or supermarket,they enjoyed their "childrenroom"and missed nothing.
I´m sure that we will come once again.
Thank you very much
Best regards
