Interaction with guests
We tend to be very busy and out a lot, except for kids meal times and bath/bedtimes. Don't think we're rude if we're all over the place and haven't got time to talk, but we'll always be there if you need help. However, when we do stop to sit down, we welcome interesting conversation!
Perfect for kids
(and of course, we're only 10mins from Central London)
EXPLORING LONDON: You can get the overground train from Clapham Junction to London Victoria and Waterloo (every 2-3mins, takes 10mins) or you can get the underground from Clapham Common all over the city. Both stations are a short bus ride away or a lovely 10min walk.
Gatwick Airport - trains leave from Clapham Junction every 15mins (takes 30mins) and it runs at night too.
Heathrow Airport - fast trains to Feltham + Airport Bus or you can take the underground.
No Pets, No Parties, No Stag/Bucks
We like quiet nights due to our 2 young children sleeping, so we ask politely that you do not return home past 1am.
Our son likes to talk (lots) and our daughter is a bit of a toddler, so you may need to be a patient listener and happy to be climbed on!
Please also note that the kitchen may be used in the evenings, BUT PLEASE CHECK FIRST on any nights you may wish to use it. We prefer guests not to cook evening meals on days when we are entertaining or having family meals together.
I'm a marketing consultant and chef from Manchester but I now own my own beauty and fitness company. I can't be without good conversation, good music and good food. We love travelling to loads of different places and we love being Mum and Dad to our 2 beautiful children! We're a homely family, we love meeting people from different countries and we're very considerate guests. If you come and stay with us, we will make sure you eat the best food in London and we love to recommend places to make sure you have a great time...
