Description from owner

Description

This property is a traditional three bedroom Victorian style end of terrace adjacent to the vicarage of the parish of St. Nicholas, Plumstead. It has been newly carpeted and maintained and decorated in a calming neutral palette which is consistent throughout. Whist the property benefits from its own garden, Winn Common is just two minutes walk with its wide open space and wooded walks.

The local high street is just three minutes walk and offers everything you will need with supermarkets, banking, restaurants and easy transport links to central London.

There is free parking immediately outside the front door. My house is on a quiet road and the only people who park here are people who live here, so you can normally get a space just outside my front door.

The England region

NATIONAL MARITIME MUSEUM
Following the National Maritime Museum's £20 million facelift, the 19th century Neptune courtyard has been covered over by a glass roof. The revamped museum is bright, airy and the whistling wind and fresh air make you feel like you're on deck. The various exhibitions in the galleys/galleries offer an interactive experience with heaving open hatchway doors, turning the ship's wheel and using Viking oars. Check out ancient uniforms, follow Admiral Nelson's sea-faring career, watch archive material of passenger ocean travel, discover what life was like in Britain's maritime heyday, and get involved in the All Hands exhibition. Wind down in the lush Global Garden - the glorious result of exotic seeds brought back by sailors. Admission is free.

ROYAL NAVAL COLLEGE
Designed by Christopher Wren, this building was founded by William III as a hospital for the Royal Navy. The Painted Hall, decorated in the 18th century by James Thornhill, is particularly worth a visit. The grounds also include the Chapel of St. Peter and St. Paul in Queen Mary Court, its Rococo style restored in 1980. The Royal Naval College is found alongside the River Thames, within a few minutes walk of the picturesque Queen's house. One-hour guided tours are available for GBP5, GBP4 concessions.

CUTTY SARK
The Cutty Sark is the last surviving tall ship left in the world. Designed by Hercules Linton, the Cutty Sark was renowned throughout the seafaring world as one of the fastest ships of the period. After a colourful career, she was moved to a dry dock in Greenwich in December 1954. Officially opened in 1957 by Her Majesty the Queen, she's been visited by over 13 million people since. The number of 'the old lady's' admirers are bound to increase, as she remains a living testimony to a glorious bygone era of sail and Empire.

GREENWICH MARKET
It won its Royal Charter in 1700 and specialises in antique, collectables arts and crafts (Thur-Sun).

ROYAL OBSERVATORY GREENWICH
Founded in 1675 by Charles II to find out the 'so much desired longitude of places for perfecting the art of navigation' It is home to the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and Meridian Line. The Museum is a top Tourist attraction all year round.

GREENWICH ROYAL PARK
Covering 74 hectares (183 acres). Greenwich is the oldest enclosed Royal Park and home to a small herd of fallow and red deer. Situated on top of a hill, visitors enjoy sweeping views across the River Thames to St Paul's Cathedral and beyond. The park is part of the Greenwich World Heritage Site, host to the Prime Meridian Line and the old Royal Observatory, as well as having the National Maritime Museum as a neighbour.

National Maritime Mesum in Greenwich is a World Heritage Site where you can stand with one foot in the east and one foot in the west as it is home to Royal Observatory and the prime meridian line which is internationally recognised as the official starting point for each new day. If it's the sea you enjoy then you can find out about Britain's long tradition as a sea faring nation at the National Maritime Museum. There are plenty of activities for all the family.

For the art lovers there are the galleries at the Queen's House just next to the Maritime Museum. This house was designed by Inigo Jones in 1616 as a commission to James I's wife Anne of Denmark.

And for those who simply want to do nothing Greenwich Park is ideal for relaxing and getting away from it all, while still being in London. There is so much to visit that there is something for everyone: both adults and children will enjoy their stay here!

“Definitely worth considering.”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2014

Prepare for a wee bit of a walk up the hill, but it's not that far or that steep. The apartment itself was clean and relaxing. Fully equipped kitchen, which is great is it's a family. The area itself is quiet, but the neighbours are friendly. There are a couple groceries nearby, as well restaurants and bus stops. There really isn't much to do in the area, but easy access to the City and other areas via the DLR. Overall, we were really pleased with the apartment and definitely recommend it for anyone.

“Very good, clean, well kept house”

Reviewed 29 Mar 2014

Hired this apartment for family visiting from abroad, clean and comfortable house, good transport links.

“Clean, Well Equipped, Excellent Value”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2013

We visited this summer for 10 days with our five children. First impressions of the house were excellent. It was really clean and, most importantly, fresh smelling. We've been to so many holiday cottages and this is the first one that hasn't had that mildly damp feeling to it. The bed linen was very clean and fresh and the beds were comfy. My husband and I used the fold down beds in the lounge and they weren't too bad at all. It was lovely to have the garden to sit out in - it was so peaceful with squirrels, birds and foxes, you wouldn't have known you were in central London. When travelling, we walked 15mins along to Plumstead station many times because although adults can buy travelcards at the shop at the bottom of the street, children can't. When we remembered, we bought kids travelcards for the next day and then we could take the bus from the bottom of the street. (Transport in London has changed so much since the 17years since I was last there - it's now so clean and tidy.) The neighbourhood was good, never saw or heard any trouble and felt safe. We only had one problem in the house which was getting the right password for the internet but it was sorted out immediately with one phone call. My one and only complaint was the climb up Purrett Street from the bus to the house - that is a very steep hill when you've been out and about in London every day! Actually think it got steeper with each passing day!

We are please to hear that our house met your expectation. Thank you for taking your time to write the review.

“Enjoyable family Stay”

The owner was very helpful with the booking. Lovely house cool area. Highly Recommended. Lots of fast food outlets at the ensd of the road. Excellent transport links.

“Well located and comfortable”

Reviewed 22 May 2012

I stayed 3 nights with a group of friends. This house was very comfortable, and the owners arranging and always helpull. No doubt I recommend this house and will be renting it if I come back to London.

“safe area, warm and enough space for big family”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2012

safe area, warm, enough space for big family (7 people), very good technological equipment (except for the dish washer - didn't work), grocery shops available on foot, good connection to city (about 45min) - it would have been good to have had a second key to the property since we didn't always come home at the same time

Thank yoy for your review. I am sorry but I did not reales the dishwashing was no working, if you let us know during your stay, we would have had send someone into show you or amend it for you. Having said that, we have guests stay at the property now since the 3rd January and we have not heard of anything that is no working . Many thanks for chosen our holiday property. Regards Jih-Wen

“A basic but clean house, equipt with the required facilities”

Reviewed 1 Dec 2011

The owner of the property was hugely helpful with any questions we had. The location of the house was ideal for getting the bus to work in the morning, only a 5 min walk down the road where plenty of busses stopped. However, the house was situated 30-45 mins away from the London O2 arena which is quite far, if this is the reason you are in London. There are plenty of shops only a short walk down the road, where you can buy food and other essentials. The house was very clean and tidy. The kitchen was equipt with all the necessary utensils and facilities for cooking. This was great and enabled us to have some cooked meals. The beds were comfy with clean sheets provided. Two keys were provided for the house which made it easy for different groups of us to enter the house under our own accord. The wifi internet access was fast and hugely beneficial. The cost of the accomodation was cheep (major pulling factor), hence some of the following feedback is to be expected. The television in the lounge area was extremely small which was not great when we wanted to relax in the evening after work. The house was very basic, with only one bathroom which was not ideal with 5 people in the house. Also in terms of space available, there was plenty in the master bedroom and other single, but not in the third bedroom where there were two beds. However this was not a huge problem as there wasn't a great deal of luggage. The 5th bed is located in the lounge, which means that they must wait for everyone else to leave the lounge before they can go to sleep. I hope this feedback is helpful and thank the owner for all her help before, during and after our stay.
