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 walk to Grove park station is 650 metres and takes 5 - 10 minutes. Train links to central London are fast and regular, departing every 15 minutes. 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 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!
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.
Tolle Wohnung in London! Wir haben uns in Toms Wohnung sehr wohlgefühlt und würden jederzeit gerne wieder buchen. Die Küche ist gut zum Kochen ausgestattet. Auch den Kindern hat es sehr gut gefallen.
We spent 4 wonderful days in London and can recommend the home of Tom & Claire very much for a family trip. Everything was in very tidy condition and we felt at home. Station and supermarket were only 10 minutes away on foot and you could ski down almost on the doorstep to London-City with the double-decker bus.
Tom is a very friendly and pleasant host, he gave us good sightseeing tips.
At the next visit to London, we are determined as guest.
Thank you for the very good time we had!
Wir verbrachten 4 wundervolle Tage in London und können die Wohnung von Tom & Claire sehr für einen Familien-Trip empfehlen. Alles war in einem sehr ordentlichen Zustand und wir haben uns wohl gefühlt. Bahnhof und Supermarkt waren nur 10 Minuten zu Fuß entfernt und man konnte auch mit den roten Doppeldeckern fast vor der Tür nach London-City abfahren.
Tom ist ein sehr freundlicher und angenehmer Gastgeber, er gab uns noch gute Sightseeing Tipps.
Beim nächsten London-Besuch sind wir bestimmt wieder Gast.
Thank you for the very good time we had!
A very nice apartment, well equipped and well located to be able to visit London. We are delighted with our stay in the apartment of Tom and Clare and the service we gave Tom seeking us and bringing us to the airport.
A big thank you

I stayed at Tom's place for a weekend with my friends from 3 to 5 january 2014. It was the best place till now in london. It was awesome. Hats off to Tom and his team. It was very neat and clean. It is a best place to stay for a family with children. The surroundings were very calm and safe. It was very easily accessible to Central london with trains and bus. The house contained every small items for a perfect stay in London. The beds, living room, kitchen were great.
Tom was very friendly and communicative. I loved his Dog meg who joined tom for a walk while handing over the keys to the room.. It was so cute and lovable. I will certainly recommend a stay again in London in his apartment. It would give a complete 100% rating to the room as it was so good and comfortable. The finest part was the Guest book which was so cute filled with very lovable wordings from different guests. Train station was just 8 min walk from the house. Central london was easily accesible in 10 mins. ( London bridge ). From there it was just easy to reach waterloo or stratford in less minutes. The surroundings had a good kebab house for a short dinner in the night.
Bathroom was very well equipped with all electronic items like hair dryer and plug points, linens, antiseptic cleaning items. etc..,
Kitchen was well equiped with utensils for cooking, having a good english breakfast etc., The living room was very good for a family to play activity games, poker, while listening to music. The bedroom was good organised with cubboards, table, lamps spring back beds etc.,
On the whole it was a wonderful time in Tom's place with a rememberable stay for a weekend with my friends.
