This is a great flat. So spacious and well equipped. Paul was a great host. I don't have much to add to the other reviews other than to say that this is such a good flat that if i lived in London it is the type of place i would like to live in!!

Paul was very welcoming with information beforehand and he contacted us after we had arrived to check we had everything we needed.
His 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom flat was an ideal base for our 3 day stay in the area. We found it spacious, warm, light and very well equipped. Parking was convenient in the private car park at the side of the house. Sadly, we had no time to explore Crystal Palace Park behind the house. We'll have to find an opportunity to do that on our next visit.
It was the perfect space for what we needed and meant we could get ready for my wedding surrounded by calm, rather than being cramped in a hotel room. The kitchen was really well stocked, enough so for my sister to make a cake for our wedding!!! The beds were really comfortable and there was a number of bathrooms which also meant us girls weren't getting in the way of one another. The hallway and entrance are so grand - perfect backdrop for some pre-wedding shots!
Un appartement très agréable, lumineux, spacieux et aménagé avec goût. Idéal pour une famille.
Situé près d'un parc assez grand, idéal pour le footing ou pour se rendre à la gare (20 minutes à pied).
Paul a été un hôte très sympathique, soucieux de notre confort.
Nous aurons grand plaisir à y retourner!
My in-laws have just finished two stints at Paul's lovely apartment while visiting from Australia. The place itself is beautiful: such a great old building with a lovely foyer, right on Crystal Palace Park with windows overlooking it. We chose this apartment as it's right around the corner from our place, but we can highly recommend Crystal Palace as an area to stay - so many cafes, pubs, restaurants, and you can chose between taking the Overground or National Rail into town.
Paul is also a great host - really quick to reply to messages, super helpful and friendly.
We will definitely be using the apartment again for future visitors! Highly recommended!

Barbersfort Cottage has been refurbished over the past couple of years and we are very proud of it.
A convenient base for the Galway region, if you want to enjoy a peaceful stroll around the fields/foresrtry in the daytime and enjoy a roaring open fire in the evening this is the place!
