About Jane Anderson

We have lived in Barnehurst for ten years due to my husbands employment, a surveyor for a large construction company. We both love renovating property and with my interior design skills take pride in providing accommodation that is clean and comfortable to a standard that we would expect for ourselves. I have a weakness for the garden and get much pleasure in growing plants and blending colours.

We both love to travel and meet people I have a passion for horses having spent 20 years running a competition yard.

When we are not working on the house we love to pop into London to see a show and soak up the atmosphere or just explore as there is so much to see and do around here.

Jane Anderson purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Jane Anderson chose London Region

Originally we bought into the area due to being close to Tim's place of work.

Having searched long and hard we fell in love with Barnehurst. The property appealed to us a quiet residential area with easy access to major road and rail links and with the Eurostar only 15 mins drive away.

A further bonus we are on the edge of Kent (known as the garden of England) lots of history and great places to visit, countryside and coastal ports.

There really is somewhere for everyone to visit from here and the London airports being less than an hours drive away.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is only 5 mins walk from the station.

We provide everything you need allowing you to travel light including hairdryer, towels and even umbrellas to keep you dry!!

We provide information on places of interest and are generally on hand to assist where possible.

You can explore London, visit the sites and take advantage of the many offers bookable on the internet. There are quite often 2 for 1 offers if you travel by train which is always useful to reduce the cost of seeing the sites in London.

Above and Beyond

  • 5 of 5

Jane and her husband, Tim, went above and beyond to make my daughter and I feel welcome in their flat. Prior to our arrival, Jane gave us very clear instructions about transportation via train to their house. We arrived late in the evening and they were there to offer us a cup of tea. The flat was clean and well equipped with utensils and our host was there to help us out if needed. During our stay, we tried to have an activity every day; Tim gave us instructions on which train(s) to take to each location. We spent one week in their flat and would definitely return to this lovely space. On our last day at their residence, Tim gave us clear directions for travel, drove us to the train station and helped us take our bags to the platform. Jane and Tim are truly "super hosts".

Welcoming & Quaint with Amazing Host & Hostess

  • 5 of 5

Jane was amazing with communication right from the start. She sent us the directions and they were very easy to follow. She even picked us up and dropped us at the train. 😊 Its only a short walk to the train but I had some extra luggage. We found it easy to navigate throughout London and it was nice to come back to a safe quiet neighborhood. This was our first visit to the UK and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Fresh flowers and a warm welcome. It's just a short walk to town and there are some really good choices for a quick inexpensive bites to eat. Check out the Kabob store , it was my son's favorite. However if you want to stay in and cook there is a perfect kitchen and a grocery store right down the street. We went to Wembley to see a Dolphins vs Saints game and it was a nice train ride and an amazing stadium. Jane gave us a list of things to see and we tried to check them all off but we just didn't get to them all. We had so much fun we can't wait to come back. If your going to London for a visit make sure to book this lovely apartment. Thanks again Jane we will see you next year. 🌻

I would highly recommended staying here to anyone. I have been travelling to London frm Manchester for over 3 yrs, and this has been the best so far. Jane & Tim are 2 lovely people, I felt really welcome, Jane met me at the train station 😊򒠠The flat is lovely very well cared for with beautiful garden. Jane had a got me a few estential tea & milk etc. The local train station Barnhurst 10 / 12 min walk. There's a. Sainsbury near by plus a very good fish & Chip shop. Fantastic stay will miss them both .

Lovely host and lovely aparment

  • 5 of 5

From Feb to Mar, I stayed three weeks at this house. Jane and her husband were really friendly and helped me out with everything possible, so that I could feel comfortable from the beginning on.

The flat had everything you Need, including a well-equipped kitchen, a washing machine and a TV. Everything was very tidy and the rooms looked like described in the pictures on this Website.

All in all, the nice hosts and the well-kept flat contributed to make my stay in Bexley a pleasant experience.

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

We are local but we were moving house and needed a place to stay for a couple of nights while some work was going on at the new house. This was a perfect fit. Close to the train station - when you know all the shortcuts it's probably 5-7 mins fast(ish) walk.

The flat is really nice and clean. It's also nicely secluded from the house so you won't feel like intruding anybody's privacy.

Jane was great, got us an additional bed at very short notice which made it really convenient for us. She really made sure we felt welcome.

Many thanks

Jan
