About This Listing
Quiet comfortable flat with private entrance and garden backing onto a leafy embankment. Trains/buses to Central London, beautiful park with open-air lido, pubs, restaurants, shops, cafés and a vibrant Sunday Market.
The flat has two bedrooms with a king-sized bed in one and a single in the other. We do also have a blow-up bed if somebody didn't mind camping in the living room. So although we say space for three, it could be four. Towels, bed linen, toiletries, coffee, tea and milk are provided along with any dry goods you find in the cupboards!
You will have access to everything including the garden.
Interaction with Guests
The flat is the ground floor of a three storey house. We live on the third floor when we have guests. We are easily contactable if there are any problems. Otherwise you will be left alone to enjoy your stay.
Herne Hill is an area with its own community groups and forum. It feels like a village but with very easy access to the city and everything you need is "just round the corner".
The station is 2 minutes away where you can get trains to Victoria (8 minutes). From there you can access the Underground for the West End. You can also get trains to Blackfriars (9 mins) for a walk along the river to Tate Modern and the Southbank. Plenty of buses to take you to the centre of London and Waterloo.
Other Things to Note
Check in can be negotiated - it depends on the day/date and the particular circumstances of the guests. Check out is anytime before 12 am.
We do not allow pets or smoking - smokers are welcome to use the garden.
Lovely apartment in a very charming neighbourhood, spacious and comfortable, very clean and quiet, nicely decorated and very well equipped with everything needed for a perfect stay. Shops and the train station are very close which makes travelling to London very convenient. Patricia and Damian were very kind and helpful any time of our stay. We spent one week in the apartment and enjoyed every second of our stay!
I didn't meet Patricia -- she had been traveling just before I arrived-- and so had I-- so communications were a bit spare-- and traffic from the airport was so clogged I arrived late-- luckily the hosts' apartment is right next door (same color door!) and they were kind about forgiving me my tardiness. Patricia's partner was very courteous in showing me the ropes-- and the location right around the corner from a little village area with pub, great bakery (Blackbird), endearing florist etc couldn't be better. Big park and nice park cafe overlooking swimming pool, only a few blocks away. Place was nicely designed with a superb bathtub and and pleasant kitchen overlooking garden-- the garden itself was a gem-- a pocket of peace in the midst of city bustle. Train station just around the corner. All in all, a great find.
The flat was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for in a short trip to London to visit friends. Brilliantly designed with lovely garden too. The location was amazing. We love Herne Hill!
If I could give 6 stars, I would. Incredibly charming cottage with a beautiful, peaceful garden, and so well decorated. Patricia and Damien made us feel very welcome and right at home. Located convenient to the rail that gets you right to the city in no time and surrounded by great local restaurants and pubs. Just fantastic!
