South East London

Forest Hill is a district, ward and suburb of South London situated between Dulwich and Sydenham.

Forest Hill is home to the celebrated Horniman Museum. Despite a leaning toward anthropological and cultural collections, the museum is also home to an aquarium and one of the most varied collections of taxidermy in the northern hemisphere. It also houses one of the finest collection of musical instruments in the British Isles. Contained within its accompanying gardens is an animal enclosure, flower gardens, and a Grade II listed early 20th century conservatory. Views from the gardens stretch out over central and north London.

With a range of architectural styles spanning the late 19th and 20th centuries, Forest Hill was described by Sir Norman Foster as "a delightful pocket of South London". Of particular note including the Horniman museum are, The Capitol Cinema and classic art deco mansion blocks Forest Croft and Taymount Grange.

Forest Hill railway station is served by frequent trains to London Bridge, Canada Water and Victoria Station and a number of bus routes.

Sydenham Hill Woods rate as one of the top ten places in London for people who love the outdoors. The wood has winding paths on a steep hillside and can be entered from Cox's Walk footbridge or Crescent Wood Road. The nature reserve is on a steep clay hillside and is dominated by sessile oak and hornbeam but there are several glades where the under storey is holly and hazel.

The wood is home to over 200 species of trees and flowering plants including wild garlic, early dog violet and bugle. The wood is also home to a multitude of fungi, rare insects, birds and elusive woodland mammals. Talking a stroll along Cox's Walk you'll find an old avenue lined with oaks and, if you look closely, you may well spot nuthatch and green woodpecker. Other species are leopard slugs, rare spiders, wasps & flies, and stag beetles.

There are bluebells, wood sorrel, lesser celandine, wild garlic with Foxgloves and red campion. There are springs near the junction of Crescent Wood Road and Sydenham Hill – the highest springs in the arc of the whole hill range. There are two entrances to the wood; one on Crescent Wood off Sydenham Hill and the other on Cox's Walk by the Harvester pub.

Dulwich and Sydenham Golf Course is only 10 minutes away and is set among mature oaks on the slopes of Sydenham Hill, overlooking the prestigious Dulwich College. It enjoys a deserved lofty status among the capital's golfing elite. The course offers thrills and spills aplenty, delivers risk and reward in equal measure and with some of the the trickiest, yet truest, greens in the south of England; the course is a genuine test for low and high handicap golfers.

"Beautiful flat, convenient location"

We stayed with our three yound children. Went for this particular apartment because it had storage for our bikes but were impressed with how nice it was. The fast train didn't run on the days we … More

Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. You mentioned the rail works which are totally beyond our control and we believe this should not have been used to review us. Since the apartment and facilities exceeded your expectations and you were satisfied with what we advertised, we think that you should score us on that, which would be 5 stars. It was a pleasure having your family stay at the apartment, you were a model guests that we would be happy to welcome back anytime.

"Not what we expected"

Our first problem came when we discovered that there is no parking space as advertised, you have to find a free space in a road some distance away. The acual flat is OK but obviously someone's home, lots of personal toiletries, pan of fat hidden away in the oven, bulk packs of rice, spices etc, so it felt a bit strange. It is impossible to sleep in the main bedroom because of some persistent noise, a fan perhaps or the buildings water system. This would have been quite a problem if there had been four of us. The person who met us at the flat and checked us out was charming but this didn't make up for the other problems.

Thank you for taking the time to share your valuable review.

We do say in our advert that there is parking space, not secure parking or allocated parking. The apartment is located in a suburban residential area with ample free street parking a short distance from the building not unlike many residential streets. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to you. We have now clearly stated in our advert the type of parking provision provided.

Unfortunately we were not aware of a noise affecting the main bedroom and we are sorry that your sleep was affected. We are investigating the source of the noise.

The housekeeping issues that you experienced are not characteristic of the level of service that we or our host strive to provide. Thank you for pointing this out to us. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back and to exceed your expectations.
