The carriage house was lovely and in the perfect location. We had an easy time getting into central London. We had a wonderful time and Alan was a hospitable and accessible host- thank you, Alan.
Convenient and cozy
The Cottage was a comfortable place to stay for our family of 5 and conveniently located. The house had a charm and unique features which made it a wonderful place to stay. It is conveniently located to two train stations (10 minute walk) to head into London for a day of sightseeing. We purchased Guest Oyster cards before leaving on our trip which were handy in using the public transportation. At Heathrow we were told the cards would not work out to the Eltham or Mottingham stations, but in reality they do. Alan was helpful in suggesting restaurants, places to visit, and shows to see while we were in town. He provides a book which gives important information about the house and area, complete with emergency number which was very helpful. If we had questions or needed assistance, our hosts were quick to respond and help out.
Cozy well appointed cottage
We found Eltham to be the best of both worlds in London town! As a home base this two bedroom cottage, in a pleasant residential area, was a short walk from a variety of amenities...restaurants, Corso coffee shop, pubs, grocery stores and bus and train transport. A 20 minute train ride takes you to central London and 30 minutes by bus to Greenwich centre where we enjoyed the Saturday market, Cutty Sark, Greenwich Observatory, and Naval College. Eltham Palace is literally in the backyard and well worth a visit. Our hosts Allan and Lana were very kind and super helpful! Would definitely stay here again!
Beautiful Apartment in Eltham
A. and L. are great hosts who have created a very comfortable space that can accomodate 5 people. We were a married couple with 3 adult single travelers as well. The kitchen is spacious and the dining room table was ample in size. Perhaps the best part was the backyard and the surrounding Eltham Palace and grounds which offer an amazing view of London at night.
There are two train stops within 10 minute walking distance (or you can take the bus that stops within 25 yards of the front gate which will take you to the train station) from the front gate. The London Bridge station was less than 30 minutes away. The restaurants and shops of Eltham are 2-3 blocks from your front door and we were able to park inside the gate off of the street and leave our car there as we traveled into London for sightseeing. thanks to A and L for showing us around your beautiful home and good luck with your current renovations!
Lovely Cottage w/o hot water
We loved the cottage, the hosts, Alan & his wife, the beautiful spacious backyard, the ping pong table, the trampoline, comfortable beds, but we were out of hot water two days out of the four we stayed for. We had to take multiple trains to get into London Center. It was a 5 minute walk to the train station.
Hi Drucilla, thank you very much for your review, and we are glad you enjoyed the Cottage!
It was a very unfortunate situation with the hot water which has been resolved as quickly as it was possible, and we really appreciate your patience and understanding!
Best wishes and hope to see you again in the future.
Alan and Lana
Very Nice Cottage in a convenient location
A nicely renovated cottage/former coach house.
Alan is still renovating the main house next door - just finishing the basement currently, but that did not interfere with our stay. Sleeps 5 comfortably - 4 in the two bedrooms upstairs and one on the pull-out sofa bed in the living room. Alan was able to accommodate us on very short notice - one day - and we had a great week here.
