About Mr and Mrs Blair
We are a family and this used to be our home, altough over the years we have travelled and offered the house as holiday lets. It is primarily a home, and our only holiday let property at the moment. We sometimes stay in the independent annexe of the house but if we are away we will leave a contact. Please report any damage, and remember that people live nearby, so no parties or gatherings with people other than those booked! Important to remember is to be quiet on the drive when coming in late at night, not to rev engines early morning or late at night and not to talk loudly on drive (even on phone) or pavement at night or early morning.
Mr and Mrs Blair purchased this House in 2004
Why Mr and Mrs Blair chose West Wickham
This is in an ideal London location if you want easy access to the centre, but also want some peace after a long day sightseeing. You will have all the home comforts. It is not a 'hotel' and please remember you won't find luxury, but what we hope is homely, comfortable and spacious rooms. You have everything you need within walking distance, pubs, restaurants, coffee bars, shops, parks, leisure facilities etc so if you choose to spend a day at home you are definitely not isolated. This is a typical English town, where people live and work, and many people commute into London daily from here to work in the city.
What makes this House unique
Lots of choice - visit central London, stay local in a typical English town, or in 5 mins drive be in open picturesque countryside. Good public transport. If you are driving we are 15 mins to the M25, so access to Kent, Surrey and the South Coast is easy. You won't find the heavy smoke and congestion of inner London, and our area is very green, yet with lots of shops, pubs and restaurants. Starbucks, Cafe Nero or lots of independent coffee shops.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great house for large family
Home was great! Clean, as described, great space for kids indoor and outdoors. Lots of activities for kids in the home. Short walk to the train station and multiple bus lines near the home. Park across the street with playground another positive for travelers with family. The kitchen was well stocked with all needed equipment - not scarce at all.
very good property
We had a few family members over from overseas who stayed at this property for a few days during my daughters wedding. Everyone stayed very comfortably and the property was nice and clean. It was also very spacious and well furbished. The landlord was also very helpful throughout.
Mr Giri and family were very nice guests - they really looked after the property and left it clean and tidy. We would most definitely welcome them back. I hope they all enjoyed their stay.
Safe upscale property close to all conveniences. Comfortable.
This house took in all seven (7) of us with two bedrooms to spare. Huge family and living room with a well equipped kitchen. Excellent parking. Convenient connections for trains, tube and travel to Gatwick, Heathrow and Paris. Quiet, private and comfortable.
I will like to rent it again in the near future as there is so much we were not able to see in London, Cambridge, Oxford and Paris.
