House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
The house has recently been expertly renovated and modernised to a very high standard. It is semi-detached and is in a fairly quiet residential area. Amenities, which include Croydon's very large shopping centre, are a short bus ride away. If you intend to use a car then there is free but contested car parking space in the road at the front of the house. The house is located in south east London near to fast and frequent transport links to central London. Trains run every 10 minutes from the local railways stations to London Bridge and to London Victoria. Journey times to central London vary from 10 to 20 minutes.
The house is ideal for a family with children, or for a party of people visiting London for work or leisure purposes. The house has all mod cons and ample sleeping facilities for a party or family of up to 5 members.The entire property is centrally heated and has been double glazed so as to keep the house warm and comfortable during cold weather.
The house has 2 sizeable bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has one double bed and one single bed. Additionally, a cot can be provided by prior arrangement.
The ground floor contains a living room with a wall mounted 32" TV. The seating is adequate for 6 people. Under the stairs is a small office area that contains a desk, a chair and a broadband connection. This is a great facility for those who need to work on-line or who work away from their normal place of work.
There is a spacious and modern kitchen diner containing all mod cons including a cooker, extractor fan, dish washer, microwave oven, toaster, kettle, fridge-freezer, washing machine/drier, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery. In other words, everything you are likely to need. The oak table and chairs provide an excellent facility for dinner parties or for family meals.
There is a modern, spacious bathroom containing a large bath with an over-head shower and full cubicle, toilet and wash basin. The bathroom is located on the ground floor and has many extras such as towels, bath mats, laundry basket, toothbrush holder, soap dish, storage. The bathroom is connected to the property's central heating system to ensure comfort.
The house has a paved and decked patio area to the rear with table, chairs and sun brolly. This provides a very pleasant setting for sitting outside on hot summer days or evenings.
If you are intending to use public transport then daily or weekly travel cards can be purchased from the local railway stations. You will need an Oyster Card to purchase a weekly travel card, but not to purchase a daily travel card. Using a travel card can give you unlimited travel on the buses, trains, trams and tube trains in the designated travel zones at a fixed price.
Central London is in zone 1 and the house is located in zone 4 or 5, depending on the station you want to travel from. You will need a card or a ticket that covers zone 5 if you intend using East Croydon railway station. Although both local railways stations are technically within walking distance we recommend using the frequent local bus service which takes you to the railway station in a matter of minutes.
Trains run all night from central London (Victoria and St Pancras International) to East Croydon railway station. The house is a short taxi ride from East Croydon railway station so you need not worry about getting home in the early hours of the morning after a late night out in central London.
Under no circumstances can guests use the house to hold parties or use the house for other activities likely cause a nuisance to the neighbours. The house is for quiet residential use only.
The house offers excellent value for money for canny, discerning visitors who want to enjoy London's attractions in comfort and privacy. Much better than a hotel we suggest ! And more cost efficient.

The South East England region
South East England is a very lively corner of England and contains London, the capital city of the United Kingdom. London is a world class city, is massive, is diverse, is extremely lively and has something for tourists whatever their interests. London has a tremendous number of historical sites which include the Greenwich Maritime Village, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, and Westminster Abbey, to name just a few.
For a modern attraction there is the London Eye. This is two rail stops from Croydon East railway station (change at Clapham Junction for Waterloo East).
For music and theatre goers there is Covent Garden in London's West End which teems with life at night. The West End has innumerable restaurants serving cuisines from many countries.. China Town, near Leicester Square, is just around the corner.
For quiet interludes, South East England has some very pretty countryside; most notably in Surrey, Kent and Sussex.. These counties are extremely well served by Croydon East rail station. For fishing, canoeing or sailing there is nearby South Norwood Lake and Grounds - a large oasis of tranquility for those who wish to "get away from it all".
