Beautiful festive home available for Christmas and New Year
We live in one of London's trendiest neighbourhoods, known for architecture, just 10 minutes by train to the City and West End and award winning restaurants, bars, independent shops, galleries and nightlife. (Camberwell, Peckham and Dulwich)
Our large home (240 square meters) sleeps 8-12 guests. Built c. 1860, it sits on a quiet tree-lined Grove at the top of a gentle hill. Big rooms, high ceilings, lovely furnishings, a log burning fire and peaceful garden with great views of the City Skyline.
You will have the whole house to yourselves. The house comfortably sleeps 8 adults in 4 bedrooms. We have two additional pull-out single beds and two sofa beds which can accommodate up to 4 more, but which have mainly been used for children. Please note one sofa bed is in our lounge. We can also provide a travel cot. The house is ideal for large family groups.
I've pasted below a previous guest's review to bring the listing to life:
'Everything from the moment we contacted Claire pre-trip and until we checked-out from the accommodation was perfect! Despite Claire not being present physically, she ensured that we were taken care of the entire time, thanks to her lovely neighbours who showed us around the house and a detailed instructions sheet for everything in and around the house.
We were a family of 8 which included seniors (60+) and kids and it felt like a home the moment we stepped in. The entire place is very clean and fresh. Great care has been taken to ensure that comfort and aesthetics of the accommodation complements each other. The layout of the house is exactly as shown in pictures. The house is designed in such a way that there is room for ample natural light. The backyard is a great place to chill/unwind (both for the kids and the adults) before or after a long day and easily became our favourite spot.
Claire generously offered us some breakfast options which we could help ourselves to, as needed. There are decent restaurants and grocery stores nearby. The house is located in a very peaceful neighbourhood away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet in between Zone 1 and 2 making it easily accessible to all Tourist attractions.
We had a wonderful time at Claire's and would definitely love to stay there again if we visit London again.'
During your stay
We have an excellent chef as a neighbour who specialises in cooking for the home. If required, he can prepare fresh home-cooked meals or cook for the freezer prior to your arrival.
We can also help you arrange online shopping and home delivery of groceries.
We travel a lot as a family and with work and know the little things make a big difference to the way you experience a place. We will do everything we can to help make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.
With train journeys of just 10 minutes to the heart of the city, the neighbourhood has undergone significant gentrification in the last 30 years and is a thriving neighbourhood with award winning shops, restaurants and bars. Benefiting from an abundance of beautiful Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian houses, it is famed for it's large tree lined roads and art scene.
Check out Time Out's guides to Peckham and Camberwell. Our favourite places include Artusi, a wonderful Italian restaurant, Franks, the summer bar on top of a multi-story carpark with the best views of the City, Ganapati, the best authentic South Indian cooking in London, No 67 for spectacular brunch or dinner and the Crooked Well for pub food that can't be beaten.
We have off road parking for one car, but you can park anywhere on our street for free.
We are an easy train journey to Gatwick and Heathrow and a short taxi ride from City Airport.
Our two nearest stations are Denmark Hill (connections to Clapham Junction, Victoria, Kings Cross, St Pancras and Farringdon) and Peckham Rye (connects to all of the above, as well as directly to London Bridge).
The nearest tube stations are Elephant & Castle (Bakerloo Line) or Oval (Northern Line) - Once you've discovered the overground services, it's unlikely you'll want to use the tube!
