The South East England region
The London Borough of Redbridge lies to the North East of London City and Central London and occupies 21.7 square miles with a population of approx 300,000. Redbridge comprises 24 districts and it has lots to offer the visitor, historical buildings and parks, good shopping and sports facilities.
Much of it falls within the County of Essex one of the oldest in England. It only a short "tube" journey from the hustle and bustle and excitement of the famous London's West End but within a few minutes you can experience Epping Forest, an ancient woodland donated by Queen Elizabeth 1st, plus farmland and nature reserves with plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities.
The coastline of Essex is famous for its beaches and the nearest resort, Southend -on-Sea, has the world's longest pier (1.34 miles/2.16Km) with its very own train service!
Redbridge has excellent transport links with 7 Central Line Tube Stations, 3 Train stations and numberous bus services linking to the center and all districts.
East London, England
JUST 30 MINUTES FROM LONDON'S WEST END
Number 10 is located in the leafy London Borough of Redbridge, Barkingside district, just 12 miles North East from the center of London's West End and only 5 miles from the 2012 Olympic Park & Stadium at Stratford which can be reached in just 13 minutes from the nearby Central Line London Underground (Tube) station at Gants Hill. Also at Stratford you will find the Westfield Shopping Centre - the largest in Europe with 254 stores, 80 restaurants, cinemas and casino.
Number 10 Hatley Avenue has private off-street car parking and two tube stations, Gants Hill and Barkingside, within easy reach on foot or by a very short bus ride. The London Underground (aka "The Tube") and Docklands Light Railway (DLR) make the whole of London and the suburbs easily accessible on foot without having to worry about parking and the daily "Congestion Charge" that operates in London city centre during weekdays. In fact a visit without a car is very easy and not inconvenient with plenty of public transport links from airports and railway stations. Locally there are many private hire car services and taxis in addition to the buses, trains and Tube services. In the centre there is also now a Cycle Hire Scheme that permits you to rent bikes by the day or hour

"Lovely large home with a wonderful backyard... safe and in a great area!"
We were visiting the UK for my grandmother's funeral so we needed a large enough house to accommodate several families. This house had it all and more. The hosts were wonderful and reached out several times before we arrived to make sure everything was ready for us. After a long overnight flight from Canada we were pleasantly greeted by the host who gave us a detailed tour of the house so we could be comfortable for our week long stay. The little things made the world of difference to me... Fresh flowers, very good quality duvets, nice towels, extremely clean... and all the supplies in a house you could ask for (including toys for the kids and a bbq!). The hosts even bought us a large amount of food for our arrival - and were clever enough to buy kid friendly items too! As for the location - I loved it. The kids had a wonderful time playing in the several parks in the area and walking up and down the high street. The Candy Store on the high street was a favorite for the kids and the Pub down the road was a favorite for the adults! The kids also loved taking the double decker bus. This was a sight seeing trip all on it's own. Practically speaking, the bus stop was a 2 minute walk from the house, then a few short stops down the road you were on the Central line Tube to take you anywhere you needed to go in London. The supermarket was a very short walk from the house and a shopping trolley provided made it very convenient. The garden was lovely and had a patio area for the adults to sit in and have large outdoor family meals together. It also has a grass and garden area that the kids had fun exploring and playing in. The house has a very warm feeling and the neighborhood was very safe. We all had a wonderful week and made some great memories. I highly recommend staying here.

"Wonderful and welcoming"
The house was perfect and exactly what we hoped for. It was clean and airy. There was an essentials pack waiting for us in the fridge so we didn't have to rush out for bread and milk. The facilities were perfect and the location was also perfect. We were met on time and earlier than they usually let people check in, by one of the owners who talked us through the alarm system etc. Early check in was requested and they were only too happy to do this. Also check out was at our leisure as there was no one booked in that day. This really helped as we were able to stay in central London a little longer. The tube is quite close by for London however for people who are less able, have a young family or cannot walk far I would recommend a taxi otherwise it's about a 15 20 Min walk. The only thing I would say needs to be clarified are things like do certain items need to be replaced e.g toilet roll hand wash kitchen herbs spices? Although there is everything you could wish for remember it is not a hotel, so take your own toiletries toothpaste etc. Overall we had a fantastic stay and look forward to going back. It felt like a home from home, relaxing and very welcoming. Thanks Phillip and Jo.
There is a bus stop 200m from the property with a very frequent bus service that stops directly at the Tube (subway) station which is a three minute ride. Taxis and private car hire are not necessary but are available if required to take guests to the airport etc.
Guests are expected to supply or replenish consumables.
