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.

Die Bewohnung befindet sich im Süden von London im 1. Obergeschoss eines Vier-Familien-Hauses. Sie ist über eine Außentreppe zu erreichen und hat einen eigenen Eingang.
Die Wohnung samt Einrichtung ist wie auf den Fotos abgebildet. Die Betten und die Polstermöbel sind bequem. Wir haben dort zu dritt 8 Tage lang unseren Urlaub verbracht und haben alles vorgefunden, was wir brauchten.
In nur 2 m Fußweg erreicht man die Bushaltestelle für Fahrten in Richtung Lewisham. Dort ist ein großes Einkaufszentrum und ein Markt.
Zur Bahnstation Grove Park läuft man nur 5 Minuten länger und gelangt so bequem ins Zentrum von London zu Tower Bridge, Charing Cross oder Cannon Road. Von dort aus lassen sich alle Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß ode per Underground erreichen. Wir hatten überhaupt keine Probleme uns zurecht zu finden.
In unmittelbarer Nähe von Grove Park befindet sich alles, was man benötigt: Geld-Automat, Supermarkt, Apotheke, Restaurants und Fast-Food-Läden.
Zu London selbst muss man wohl nicht viel sagen, es ist einfach eine wunderbare Stadt in der es unendlich viel zu sehen und zu erleben gibt.
Wir haben unseren Urlaub sehr genossen, nicht zuletzt auch durch die Herzlichkeit und Gastfreundschaft unseres Gastgebers Tom, der uns vom Flughafen abgeholt hat. Wir können diese Unterkunft auf jeden Fall empfehlen!
Thanks to Tom and all the best for you and your family!
Tom & Clare are very kind. It's a very Nice appartment and has all the facilities you'll need. It's very close to Sainsbury's and Lee station. You'll be in the centraal of London within 30 minutes. I gave Tom the advise to take more care about cleaning. Towels, bedding, kitchengear etc. are clean, but there was quite a bit of old dust around the corners and windows.
We had a lovely stay and we would recomend it.
We had a nice time in the flat.
Very good transport possibility and a supermarket near by.
WLan and English TV to keep informed. We would book this flat again!
Really nice flat. Big enough for a familly ( 2 + 2). No services missing: tv, vacuum, ... Well situated and quite calm. Easy to go to centre town by train and big shop at 2 min walk.
Really good expérience and we recommand it.
Tom is very nice.
We had a very enjoyable stay, and Tom was a very helpful host. The flat is very near the station and it is easy to get into central London.
Everything was as promised.
Great house and location, everything was almost new and trully clean. Tom is a very nice and helpful person.
I live in London but my familiy spent 4 days here and belive me, it´s much better than any place you could find in London for that price!
We were a group of five and stayed in Tom's flat for 6 nights. London Bridge is reachable within 15 - 20 minutes with the train. Tom and his housekeeper Dolo collected us from the train station "Grove park" and showed us the way to the flat (2 minutes walk). We received two keys and didn't had to pay any caution. Communication was without any problems, Tom gave me the phone number from his housekeeper and she was always reachable. It was a really nice stay at Tom's flat !!
It was really nice to stay at Tom & Clare's place. They are very kind people and very helpfull too!
We would definitely come back if we would go to London again.
Thank you for the amazing week!
The apartment is conveniently located for those traveling by car from Dover / Folkestone. The train station is within walking distance in 3 minutes and it takes about 15 minutes without connection to the city center. A small supermarket and a few restaurants are driving a short distance away. The apartment is in a good split and friendly luggage on the ground floor. Our very nice and helpful host was agreed on the spot. A highly recommended accommodation!
Die Wohnung liegt verkehrsgünstig für die Anreise mit dem Auto von Dover/Folkestone. Der Bahnhof ist fußläufig in 3 Minuten zu erreichen und man fährt ca. 15 Minuten ohne Umsteigen ins Stadtzentrum. Ein kleiner Supermarkt und ein paar Mitnahmerestaurants sind einen Katzensprung entfernt. Die Wohnung ist prima aufgeteilt und gepäckfreundlich im Parterre. Unser sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber war vereinbarungsgemäß am Ort. Eine sehr empfehlenswerte Unterbringung!
