Greenwich house description

Live like a true Greenwich Londoner and enjoy the village life in the big city.

Explorers' Rest is a much-loved and charming two-bed Victorian house (circa 1890) that sleeps four in two comfy double beds. An additional mattress is provided for a fifth guest. A baby's cot is also supplied, along with a high chair and security gate for the stairs. Well-behaved pets are warmly welcomed.

Explorers' Rest has been loving prepared to help you relax and unwind after your long days exploring the city. Equipped as a full family home, Explorers' Rest should have everything you need to be as comfortable in London as you would be at home.

Located in London's leafy borough of Royal Greenwich, both central London and the countryside are within easy reach by car or public transport.

After a fun day of exploring, come home to a quiet Victorian neighbourhood and close the door on London's hustle and bustle. It's time to relax! Enjoy a BBQ picnic in your own private garden, unwind with a candlelit soak in the tub, stroll through the many parks in all directions, cozy up by the working fireplaces, enjoy a book from one of the bookshelves, or enjoy a film from the extensive DVD collection.

Our neighbours are quiet and friendly. Shops are conveniently just around the corner. The play area at the end of the street is a favorite with children. Parks stretch for miles in all directions. But best of all, public transport to all of London's tourist spots is right on your doorstep, literally a 30 second walk from the front door.

You do not need a car if you stay here. There is a bus stop around the corner and we are just 6-10 minutes by bus from a major transport hub that will take you quickly in all directions using either the train, bus, boat or DLR (tube that runs above ground).

However, if you do have a car, you'll enjoy FREE PARKING just outside the front door, which is quite difficult to find in London.


GETTING TO LONDON'S TOURIST ATTRACTIONS:

We're in zone 4 of London's 6 transport zones on the bus/tube/train/boat lines into the heart of the tourist areas so getting around is very easy. Three buses just around the corner from the house go 1.5 miles to the transport hub of Woolwich Arsenal in about 10 minutes. From here travel times are roughly:

- 4 mins (City Airport)
- 6 mins (Charlton Football Stadium)
- 10 mins (Greenwich Park/Uni/Museums/Observatory, Blackheath)
- 15 mins (o2 Arena, Canary Wharf, Docklands Museum)
- 20 mins (Olympic Village, London Bridge, Tower Bridge, Westfield shopping centre)
- 25 mins (Waterloo, London Eye, Westminster, Tower of London)
- 30 mins (Charing Cross for Oxford Street, Soho, Leicester Square, Picadilly Circus, Covent Garden)

Alternatively, bus 53 goes from the house all the way to the London Eye/Westminster in about 40 minutes - and runs all night. There is an endless list of happenings in London so I'll give you a handy welcome pack and lots of tourist info to help make sense of it all.

GETTING HERE FROM THE AIRPORTS:

FROM CITY AIRPORT: Just hop on the DLR (overland tube) and it's 4 minutes to Woolwich Arsenal station.

FROM HEATHROW, STANSTEAD OR GATWICK: I recommend getting a driver if you want the most stress-free start to your holiday - costs approximately £60 - which I can organise for you. However, if you want to use public transport, it's very easy to get to and from all of the airports.

FROM HEATHROW: Takes about 1hr 40mins on public transport. Get the Picadilly Line to Green Park and change to the Jubilee line to North Greenwich. From there you can get a bus.

FROM STANSTEAD: Takes about 1hr 15mins on public transport. Get the Standstead Express into Liverpool Street. Get the Central line (tube) one stop to Bank and get the DLR 25 minutes to Woolwich Arsenal station.

FROM GATWICK: Takes about 1 hr 15mins on public transport. Simply get the Gatwick Express to London Bridge station. Get the train to Woolwich Arsenal station.

VISITING THE COUNTRYSIDE / COAST / FRANCE:

There are some brilliant coastal areas to check out - all within 60-90 min: Southend-on-sea, Margate, Herne Bay, Ramsgate, Broadstairs (home of Charles Dickens) and Brighton. You can do a day trip and cover most of these in one (very full) day - or relax in just one if you're looking to unwind.

The Kent countryside (and beyond) is also full of fun places to explore and slightly closer than the coast at 20-90 min away. My recommendations are: Cambridge, Rochester, Canterbury, Rye, Sandwich (perfectly forgotten in time), Royal Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks and Chilham (absolutely adorable and tiny).

Windsor, Winchester and Oxford are a bit further away (about two hours), but doable and worth it if you're keen on any of them.

France is also very easy to access from here for a day or weekend trip via the Eurostar train, the ferry or the Eurotunnel (crossings are a little over an hour from the Explorers' Rest). Full details will be in your welcome package.

            Most of my guests have children. Less than a minute's walk from the front door, you will find an outdoor play area that young children will love.

          • Non Smoking Only:

            You are welcome to smoke in the garden or outside the front door. There is absolutely no smoking in my house please. ...moreless

          • Pets Considered:

            I love pets and I will always consider pet requests. I understand that other guests may not like pets and so the house is always thoroughly cleaned to ensure there are no odours or hairs left behind. For this reason, your pets will need their own pet bed (which we supply in case you can't bring one) and will only be allowed on furniture if they are on a clean, thick blanket that you provide. Also, I provide a gate so that larger animals can ideally be restricted to the downstairs....moreless

          • Wheelchair Inaccessible:

            There are three steps leading up to the front door and the house is over two levels, so it would sadly be impossible to accommodate a wheelchair....moreless

          • Both bedrooms are upstairs in carpeted rooms and have hotel quality linen and towels. Other than the three double beds, there are two single mattresses with linen that can be used on the floor if needed and a baby's cot. Should any guests be limited by stairs, the sofa in the living room is very comfortable - or the two extra mattresses fit comfortably on the floor. The Master Bedroom has three floor to ceiling wardrobes with mirror doors (one conceals a desk). A working fireplace with exposed brick takes centre stage in the room, with a vanity to the left and a large bookcase to the right. At the foot of the bed, there is a chair and laptop desk. The Garden Bedroom has one floor to ceiling wardrobe, an ornamental Victorian fireplace, desk, vanity area and bookcase. ...moreless

The kitchen is fully modernised, complete with dishwasher, washing machine (dryer in the shed), fridge, freezer, electric oven, gas hob and safe for your valuables. A low window looks onto the garden, making it probably my favorite room in the house. The table can seat four comfortably and six if needed. There is a satellite TV/DVD and small sofa for two to make socialisation easy whilst cooking. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the pots, pans and utensils you will need for cooking almost any meal and some food essentials are also provided. There is ample food storage....moreless

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          RARE LONDON LUXURY: FREE PARKING!

                          There is free parking just outside my front door, on a quiet residential street with no through-traffic. Even if you arrive with a car, I highly advise that you use public transport if you're going any closer to the centre of the city than Blackheath Village or Downtown Greenwich.

                          LOCATION

                          Explorers' Rest is situated in the quiet, leafy, Victorian residential area of Plumstead Common inside the borough of Royal Greenwich. Most houses in the area are similar in age to mine, about 100-120 years old. They are also terraced in style, meaning they are in a long line, all side by side, with bay windows and chimney pots on the top.

                          The locals are a mix of working class (blue collar) and middle class (white collar) so you'll have lawyers, police officers, teachers, nurses, and builders all living side by side. It's a predominantly white British neighbourhood, whereas Plumstead down the hill is predominantly Indian and Woolwich Arsenal, also down the hill, is predominantly African.

                          TRANSPORTATION

                          Three bus routes pass my house (291,51,53) and they all take you into Woolwich Arsenal, the major transport hub for Southeast London, in 7-10 minutes.

                          One bus that passes my house (53) takes you all the way to Westminster / Big Ben / London Eye / Buckingham Palace.

                          From Woolwich Arsenal, you can get the train, DLR (overground tube), or boat to any London attraction you could possibly want to enjoy in 20-30 minutes, depending on which area you're going to. During Monday to Friday, there are free newspapers available on the trains that you can enjoy on the journey.

                          AROUND MY HOUSE

                          My house is ideally situated for people who want to easily access the tourist attractions of London via public transport, but would prefer to live like a local in a safe, quiet neighbourhood with a private garden, parks in all directions, shops and bus stops around the corner, and a handy play area for children a minute's walk away.

                          GREENWICH

                          Bus 53 comes past my house and will take you to the top of Greenwich Park, where you'll find the Observatory and Meridian line for Greenwich Mean Time. Down the hill from this, through the park, you'll find yourself in the heart of downtown Royal Greenwich and surrounded by beautiful Royal historical sites and buildings, including the Maritime Museum and the Old Royal Naval College, now Greenwich University.

                          OUTSIDE LONDON

                          Our location is also ideal for exploring the Kent countryside in the Southeast of England. I provide train maps and lots of tourist information to help you decide if you'd like to have a day out of the city to explore something that can only be found in the countryside. Also from Woolwich Arsenal, you can get trains to these locations outside the city.

                          EXPLORING EUROPE

                          If you're using my home as your European base for a few weeks or more, you'll be pleased to know that City Airport is just 20 minutes from my front door on public transport. From here, you can fly all over Europe if you fancy a quick city escape to explore some other parts of Europe.

                          Likewise, it's very easy to rent a car and drive over to France on the ferry or through the Eurotunnel to do some shopping for French products or to explore a bit of France or Belgium for a couple of days.

                          FOR GOLF ENTHUSIASTS

                          Shooters Hill Golf Club is the nearest at 1.5 miles away. Golf was first played here in 1903 and is full of history as a Prisoner of War camp for some 1000 German and Italian prisoners (www.shgc.uk.com/).

                          Three other courses are all about four miles away. Firstly, Royal Blackheath Golf Club, believed to be the oldest golf club in the world, dating to 1608, with 36 holes over 110 acres.

                          Secondly, Eltham Warren Golf Club (18 holes), founded in 1890, and one of England’s oldest nine hole courses.

                          Finally, Bexleyheath Golf Club, founded in 1909 and sure to given even the expert golfer some impressive challenges. All warmly welcome visitors.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: My name is Krista and I'm in my mid-thirties. I am Canadian but have been living in the UK since September 2002. In August 2005 I put an offer in on my house, Explorers' Rest, and received the keys in January 2006. I walked into my new home, sat down and cried. At the age of 27 and on a young teacher's salary, the only house I could afford in the area I wanted to live was one that needed a lot of work to bring it back to life. And I had no idea how to use a drill, a hammer, or even plaster a hole in a wall! I spent the next five years fixing up my home to the cute, cozy little city haven that it is now. I got help from friends and paid for the services of experts to do the technical work. My blood, sweat and tears have brought this beautiful old home back to life and I have loved every minute of my time here! When you arrive at my house, I hope you'll immediately feel the love I pour into it, and I hope you'll be as happy here as I am. You'll be able to enjoy the photo album I've left to show you the before, during, and after photos of the renovations. A few years ago I moved in with husband. His name is Erik and he is a South African IT Specialist, also living in the UK for over ten years. When I moved into his flat, I wasn't sure what to do with my beloved house. Because we love traveling and renting other people's homes, I decided to try renting mine in the same way. Within days of listing my home, I was inundated with bookings and I've been loving it ever since! If you'd like to know more about me, you can check out a site about pursuing your dreams that I'm very proud to say is mine and in its early stages of life: wodara.org

                          Why the Owner Chose Greenwich:
                          Greenwich is a very special part of the city. We have easy access to London's chaotic hustle and bustle, but we don't have to live in it. After a full day, we get to come home to parks and foxes and birds, quiet gardens, 300 miles of walking and biking trails through the parks that fill this special part of London, and quaint Victorian houses in small, friendly neighbourhoods. I supply a lot of information at the house to be sure that you're aware of all Greenwich has to offer. There is enough just here that you could easily fill a week without ever going into the downtown tourist centre of London. I love London's touristic centre, but there is always a sense of relief that washes over me at the end of the day when I get to retreat to my quiet little Greenwich haven.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          I keep my prices as low as I can afford and still pay my bills. I truly hope you'll feel that you're getting a lot of value for your money. My home is my hobby and I love shopping for little decorations and items that will make your stay more comfortable. I love leaving little items for you when you arrive. And I love chatting back and forth with you to help you make your holiday special. Because my house is not right in the middle of the tourist centre, there are no planes flying overhead and so it's easy to sleep well here because it's so quiet. My garden is private and very quiet. In the spring and summer, it's lovely for relaxing and having a private picnic on the grass. There is also free parking outside my front door, shops less than a minute's walk away, parks in all directions, and a bus stop just around the corner so it's incredibly easy to get around without a car. Also, the bathtub and the fireplaces in my home are special and essential for relaxing on a holiday! London can be rainy and there will be the odd day that you don't want to go anywhere! For this reason, I've stocked my house with books,CDs and DVDs and you should therefore always have some entertainment so the rainy days don't seem so rainy. Finally, I think that each room in my house has a feel-good energy that will truly help you to rest after your days of exciting exploration.
