Family flat with parking next to station
|Address||Chinbrook Crescent, SE12 9TJ London, United Kingdom|
|Response time||A few hours|
|Calendar updated||A week ago|
**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.

Reviews for this host's other properties
Tom & Clare are very kind. It's a very Nice appartment and has all the facilities you'll need. It's very close to Sainsbury's and Lee station. You'll be in the centraal of London within 30 minutes. I gave Tom the advise to take more care about cleaning. Towels, bedding, kitchengear etc. are clean, but there was quite a bit of old dust around the corners and windows.
We had a lovely stay and we would recomend it.
We had a nice time in the flat.
Very good transport possibility and a supermarket near by.
WLan and English TV to keep informed. We would book this flat again!
Really nice flat. Big enough for a familly ( 2 + 2). No services missing: tv, vacuum, ... Well situated and quite calm. Easy to go to centre town by train and big shop at 2 min walk.
Really good expérience and we recommand it.
Tom is very nice.
We had a very enjoyable stay, and Tom was a very helpful host. The flat is very near the station and it is easy to get into central London.
Everything was as promised.
Great house and location, everything was almost new and trully clean. Tom is a very nice and helpful person.
I live in London but my familiy spent 4 days here and belive me, it´s much better than any place you could find in London for that price!
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
A very nice stay. Large, clean and comfortable.
Within a reasonable range of the city center by Tube, Train and bus.
Thank you for your interest!
Many thanks to Tom - we'd enjoyed our Trip to London.
Great apartment in London! We have felt ourselves very well in Tom's apartment and would not hesitate to book again with pleasure. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking. Even the kids enjoyed it very much good.
