|Further details indoors|
The apartment occupies the whole of the top of the house on the second floor. This gives great views of the garden and our famous oak tree but it does mean that there are two floors of stairs. Having said this, if you have no problem in your own house you should have no problem at all.
|Further details outdoors|
The house is set in a large woodland garden with private parking. Parks and all amenities, including supermarket, restaurants and cafes are a 2 minute walk away.
We DO NOT charge a returnable deposit for breakages - we understand that accidents happen.
The South East England region
South East England offers access to field and forest (eg the famous Winnie The Pooh Ashdown Forest) and a slice of history (Leeds Castle and Hastings where Normans and Saxons slugged it out) yet central London is only 20 mins away with its famous historical and theatrical landscape.
Crystal Palace is very family-friendly. Eating out in Crystal Palace is a must with excellent food from all regions of the globe. Crystal Palace park is the place to work up an apetite or for the more sedate, antique hunting is always good fun.
