This newly renovated studio is completely self contained within a secure garden of the host's house of residence. It has all you need for a relaxing visit (double bed and room for a fold extra single bed/ travel cot if requested). There are excellent transport links into London.

Utrymmet

The garden studio is brand new and located at the bottom of our garden which is a independent building to the main house. There is a code lock to enter the garden so you can come and go as you please. The bathroom is very compact with a toilet, basin and shower. All the space in the bathroom is used to its maximum capacity with little spare space so if you would prefer a larger bathroom or are of a large build this is not the property for you. The kitchen is ideal for making tea, coffee, breakfast and heating ready made meals. There is a microwave and oven and single ring ceramic hob.

Gästers åtkomst

The guest can relax on the veranda outside the studio overlooking the garden and use the driveway on Ockley Road in front of the studio if driving.

As hosts we intend to always be on hand to answer questions about sight seeing, travelling around, etc. Provide our guests with any additional items within reason they require. Mrs Benson is in the daytime during part of the week.

Streatham is about 6 miles from the centre of London, it is conveniently reached by 3 train stations (Streatham Hill (a 10-15 min ride to Victoria train station), Streatham Common and Streatham.) Mostly we use Streatham Hill which is 6 mins walk up a convenient high street.

This has a good collection of shops and amenities: a supermarket just across the road from our house, 2 other supermarkets, several good pubs, some good restaurants, general fast food chains a Cinema (recently refurbished) and library all within 2 mins walk of the garden studio. There are 2 lovely commons (parks) at the end of our road, Tooting common, and about 10-15 mins walk Streatham Common. lots of families and dog walkers can be found on both enjoying their little oasis of green in London!

In terms of accessing the underground there are two nearby stations on the Northern Line and about a 20 minute journey to the west end; the first is Tooting Bec, which is about a 15 minute walk / 5 min bus ride door to door from our house. Then there is Balham (one station further on into the centre on the Northern line) which again is either a 15 minute walk / 5 min bus ride door to door. Many people walk up the high street to Streatham Hill overland train station and take a 5 minute train journey one stop into Balham and change there for the underground.

You can also access the Victoria Line very easily by catching a bus from a bus stop within 3 minutes of our place and catching a bus to Brixton. The routes which go to Brixton from here are (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and 250. So you never have to wait more than a few minutes for a bus.

If you want to see London by bus there is also a bus 159 which goes from the bus stop by our house into central London. Its route takes you past the Imperial War Museum, following this over the Thames into Parliament Square where Big Ben is and The Houses of Parliament. On from here it goes to Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Street. So are brilliant sightseeing route right into the centre.

You have the Imperial War Museum a few miles away and the vibrant Southbank with the Tate museum a mile or two further from our house.

In terms of getting to us from Gatwick there is a National Express Coach which goes every hour from Gatwick to Streatham Becmead Avenue bus stop which takes around 1 hr and is very reasonable at £8.00. So very very convenient to reach.

Heathrow, Stanstead and City Airport all are reachable by train/underground.

Luton Airport also has a direct train to Streatham from that airport.

If wishing to go to Wimbledon Tennis we are a 5 minute walk from Streatham Train Station which is short direct route to Wimbledon Train Station.

We are a 5 minute walk from Tooting Bec Lido which is the biggest outdoor swimming pool in Europe. Although not heated! Something for the brave or summer.

Brilliant, sparkling clean, fantastic space. No damp or mustiness like many English homes. Richard and Fiona were very kind and open and inviting with us, and were pretty much invisible (which we wanted!) but also made it well known that they were easily contacted, and they were! Best hosts ever. The room had just enough space for two women to get along and move around and live together for a week. Oven, electric induction stove, fridge, and microwave made it very easy for us to cook all our own food (which is perfect for me, having food allergies.) We also found it stocked with all dishes, cutlery, cleaning supplies, paper towel, coffee, tea, condiments, baking sheets, french press coffee maker, kettle, extra towels and sheets, soap, shampoo, and even a jug of milk and orange juice in the fridge, and a full sized Toblerone and bag of chips! We were absolutely thrilled with all of the special, thoughtful touches. The home was easy to find, although we had a little trouble figuring out the lock on the door, but later realized that they had actually mentioned how to do it in a previous message, so that was our fault. (It was a long flight, okay?:P) I would also warn future guests not to trip on the metal gate locks in the front drive. I did almost every day, even though I knew they were there, so maybe I'm just extra clumsy! Located in a very decent neighbourhood, which two young women felt quite safe in walking at night. The houses and buildings nearby seemed well-kept and clean, barring one or two on the main street, but that's London. Very close (3-5mins walk) to plenty of different grocery stores, convenience stores, coffee shops, bars and restaurants, and some other shopping like clothes, shoes, and discount stores (Poundland and Poundworld, etc). No grocery stores open 24/7 that we saw, but the Sainsbury's was open til 11pm, which was late enough for us. 10-12mins walk to two different train stations with plenty of connections to tube. 3-5mins walk to bus and coach stops, and the Gatwick airport coach stops right there too! All in all, this place was 10x better than any hotel I've been to in London, and half the price! 11/10, would book again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much, Richard and Fiona, for your excellent hospitality.

Prior to arriving communication was very good. We checked in without any trouble. The accomodation was very comfortable and we had everything that we could want for our short stay. It was a real bonus to have off-street parking too. The location is perfect and restaurants, pubs & shops etc. are all within a short walk. Would definitely stay again.

Richard's place was great to stay at. Fiona was there to greet us when we arrived. She took the time to tell us about the transportation routes and stores nearby where we could get transit passes. The communication during our stay was great as Richard and Fiona made sure to let us know in advance when their son was going to be throwing a party in the back yard in case the noise was an inconvenience to us. The room was smaller than expected as we had booked the room for three people, but the space seemed like it would be better suited for two. Having a cot for a third person meant very limited space for walking and resulted in a few injuries while we were trying to move around the space

Beautiful little studio in a great location close to transportation into the heart of London. It is a very private, self-contained space separate from the main house. The neighbourhood is quiet, and provides all the elements that would be required - grocery stores, specialty shops, pharmacies, restaurants, and pubs. Would highly recommend this airbnb!!
