Family flat with parking next to station
|地址||Chinbrook Crescent, SE12 9TJ London, 英国|
**Folkstone 1hr by car**
**Gatwick 45mn by train**
**Central London 15mn by train**
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 six, and a dining table with four chairs plus two folding chairs. The bathroom has a bathtub with shower. The kitchen has a fridge, oven and four burner hob, plus a washing machine.
The flat is functional and has everything a family would need for a short city break. The kitchen is in need of a refurbishment, and the whole flat needs some redecoration. This is scheduled for November 2015. In the meantime, guests can enjoy the flat as it is, knowing that if it were newly refurbished they would be paying more!
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.
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.
The flat is next to the railway station - it could not be closer. From the gates of the flat to the ticket office, the walk takes under 60 seconds! 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.

We have had a wonderful holidays in London, and Tom & Claire's apartment has been a basic ingredient of the success. We had everything we needed, plenty of space, quietness, comfortable furniture, a well-equipped kitchen, wifi connection... and a couple of amazing hosts, who did everything to make sure we were happy at the apartment.
The apartment is very finely connected with the city center, takes no more than 25 min to get to Trafalgar Square by train, there are bus lines that can also be helpful and it's only a nice walk from Greenwich. We made the most of our stay thanks to the easy mobility that we had from Pegley Gardens.
I strongly recommend to everyone coming to London for holidays to stay with Tom and Claire and puiblicy show my gratitude and appreciation for their kindness.
I can not think to come to London again for a short stay and not to stay in Tom's gorgious flat. It was awesome experience as Tom showed great hospitality and utmost care. The flat contained every tiny thing one could possibly need and Tom did everythging to make the stay comfortable. Thanks Tom.
We had some wonderful days during our stay in London in Tom & Claire appartement.
The appartement was nice and clean and everything we needed was in the appartement. The free wifi was gladly used bij our children to keep up with friends and we could used it to plan our next day and book some activities.
The beds were good, everybody slept wel, and also the bathroom was very nice.
There are some supermarkets nearby (5 min walk) and also a nice Pup and two places for an englisch breakfast. From Grove Park station (5 min walk) you have a local train to london city.
What we also liked was the the appartement is in a local area, which mean that you meet the "real" local people in the supermarket, the Pup, restaurant, who were all very friendly.
We enjoy our stay very much, and would recommended to everybody who looks for a nice appartement for there stay in London.

Excelente apartamento, acogedor y completisimo.
Muy bien comunicado, con el centro de Londres.
Barrio muy tranquilo.
Hemos estado muy a gusto .
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.
El apartamento estaba bien. La limpieza un poco justa. Aunque solo había media hora en tren hasta Londres ha resultado estar un poco lejos, pierdes bastante tiempo en transporte. El tren también sale caro, tuvimos que recargar la Oyster de los niños 2 veces y la nuestra 1 vez.
