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.

Reviews of this property
The flat is perfectly equipped. We were a group of six people and didn´t miss anything!
Grove Park station is ten minutes walk away. You can also find a supermarket and cafes close to the station.
We would recommend the flat to everybody!
Can recommend the apartment to anyone. Equipment and support by the landlord top. Overall, a very cozy apartment. Tion for short breaks more than sufficient. Went with friends for a long weekend there and fandens all great.
Kann die Wohnung nur jedem weiterempfehlen. Ausstattung und Betreuung durch die Vermieter top. Insgesamt eine sehr gemütliche Wohnung. Für nen Kurzurlaub mehr als ausreichend. War mit ein paar Freunden ein verlängertes Wochenende da und fandens alle klasse.
We have all encountered such, as we have liked. The agreement with the owner worked great. The apartment was clean and for us as a family of 7 the place was enough. The apartment was a great base for our day trips to London. The city was almost within 30min. accessible. The car we were able to park in front of the apartment safely on the road. We recommend the apartment of Tom Crispin you.
Wir haben alles so angetroffen, wie wir es uns gewünscht haben. Die Absprache mit dem Vermieter hat super geklappt. Die Wohnung war sauber und für uns als als 7-köpfige Familie hat der Platz ausgereicht. Die Wohnung war ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für unsere Tagestouren in London. Die City war innerhalb von knapp 30min. erreichbar. Das Auto konnten wir sicher am Straßenrand vor der Wohnung parken. Wir empfehlen die Wohnung von Tom Crispin gerne weiter.
We have had a wonderful holidays in London, and Tom & Claire's apartment has been a basic ingredient of the success. We had everything we needed, plenty of space, quietness, comfortable furniture, a well-equipped kitchen, wifi connection... and a couple of amazing hosts, who did everything to make sure we were happy at the apartment.
The apartment is very finely connected with the city center, takes no more than 25 min to get to Trafalgar Square by train, there are bus lines that can also be helpful and it's only a nice walk from Greenwich. We made the most of our stay thanks to the easy mobility that we had from Pegley Gardens.
I strongly recommend to everyone coming to London for holidays to stay with Tom and Claire and puiblicy show my gratitude and appreciation for their kindness.
I can not think to come to London again for a short stay and not to stay in Tom's gorgious flat. It was awesome experience as Tom showed great hospitality and utmost care. The flat contained every tiny thing one could possibly need and Tom did everythging to make the stay comfortable. Thanks Tom.
We had some wonderful days during our stay in London in Tom & Claire appartement.
The appartement was nice and clean and everything we needed was in the appartement. The free wifi was gladly used bij our children to keep up with friends and we could used it to plan our next day and book some activities.
The beds were good, everybody slept wel, and also the bathroom was very nice.
There are some supermarkets nearby (5 min walk) and also a nice Pup and two places for an englisch breakfast. From Grove Park station (5 min walk) you have a local train to london city.
What we also liked was the the appartement is in a local area, which mean that you meet the "real" local people in the supermarket, the Pup, restaurant, who were all very friendly.
We enjoy our stay very much, and would recommended to everybody who looks for a nice appartement for there stay in London.

Apartment is in a quiet area, within walking distance in 8 minutes from the train station and offers everything you need for a short break. At the station, it has shops for everyday use. London Bridge is 20 minutes away by train. We would not hesitate to stay with Tom Crispin, especially when he would be the next time when you arrive at the apartment also.
Wohnung ist ruhig gelegen, in 8 Minuten zu Fuss vom Bahnhof zu erreichen und bietet alles, was man für einen Kurzurlaub braucht. Beim Bahnhof hat es Einkaufsmöglichkeiten für den täglichen Gebrauch. London Bridge ist 20 Minuten per Zug entfernt. Wir würden jederzeit wieder bei Tom Crispin wohnen, besonders, wenn er das nächste Mal bei Ankunft auch bei der Wohnung wäre.
Me and my girlfriends and our kids were from 03.04 - 06.04.13 when Tom and Clare Guest. Very nice apartment, in a quiet position, not directly in the center, but that was a good thing! The hotel was easy to find and reach the city center from there easily. The owners are super nice and helpful! Our kids were very, very excited and gave full credit for the apartment, we mothers are close to of course! If we are still in the future want to go to London, then certainly to Tom & Clare!. This we already know! ;)
Ich und meine Freundinen und unsere Kinder waren von 03.04 - 06.04.13 bei Tom & Clare zu Gast.
Sehr schöne Wohnung, in ruhige Lage, nicht direkt in Zentrum, aber das war auch gut so!!! Die Unterkunft war leicht zu finden und die Stadtmitte von dort einfach zu erreichen. Die Gastgeber sind super nett und hilfsbereit!!! Unsere Kinder waren sehr, sehr begeistert und gaben für die Wohnung volle Punktzahl, wir Mütter schliessen uns natürlich an! Wenn wir noch in die Zukunft nach London werden fahren wollen, dann ganz bestimmt zu Tom & Clare!. Das wissen wir jetzt schon!!!;)
We enjoined our stay as family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids, 8 and 11) in Tom and Clare's flat very much. Easy connections to the attractions in London city, quiet environment. The flat is perfectly equipped with all necessary household staff and Tom & Clare were very helpful.
