Condo/Apartment
Our bright and spacious two, double bedroom apartment is located in a quiet and friendly residential square just minutes away from the picturesque Blackheath village. Located one row back from the heath and traditional English pub, The Princess of Wales, you are perfectly located to explore London and the surrounding areas in Kent. Blackheath is a popular and desirable London village with an excellent choice of restaurants, bars, shops and a farmers market on Sunday. After 7 minutes walk to the railway station you can be in Trafalgar Square and central London just 20 minutes later! As well as its closeness to Central London it is a 15 minute walk to the beautiful Greenwich Park, home to the Royal Observatory and the Queen's deer, with its panoramic views of London! Just another short walk...Our bright and spacious two, double bedroom apartment is located in a quiet and friendly residential square just minutes away from the picturesque Blackheath village. Located one row back from the heath and traditional English pub, The Princess of Wales, you are perfectly located to explore London and the surrounding areas in Kent. Blackheath is a popular and desirable London village with an excellent choice of restaurants, bars, shops and a farmers market on Sunday. After 7 minutes walk to the railway station you can be in Trafalgar Square and central London just 20 minutes later! As well as its closeness to Central London it is a 15 minute walk to the beautiful Greenwich Park, home to the Royal Observatory and the Queen's deer, with its panoramic views of London! Just another short walk from here is the centre of Greenwich with its historic buildings, museums, markets and boat trips on the river Thames. Greenwich Peninsula, home to the O2 arena and on the Jubilee Line, is just a short bus ride away from the village too. For corporate users we are within easy reach of the City and Docklands; London Bridge is only 15 minutes away by train and Lewisham is 5 minutes away with its connection to the Docklands Light Railway. London City Airport can be reached by taxi in 25 minutes. Our clean and cosy maisonette is well equipped with everything you need to enjoy a city stay. It has a TV and DVD, high speed wireless internet connection, washing machine, fridge-freezer and ample cooking facilities. The sleeping arrangements would suit either two couples or a family group. There is a king size bed in bedroom one (which overlooks the communal gardens) and a king size bed in bedroom two, both with egyptian bed linen. We also can provide a single chair-bed, a fold out bed (for a younger child), a travel cot (for older babies/ toddlers) and a crib (for small babies) . All bedroom curtains have blackout linings to ensure it is not too light in the mornings! As the apartment is arranged over two floors we have stair gates if required for you to install. We also have a high chair and a range of child/ baby friendly equipment. Our kitchen and separate, spacious lounge are very comfortable for family dining and relaxation. The lounge includes a small study area and bookcase with an array of books and tour guides. Families will love this peaceful location close to London with its nearby heath, ideal for kite flying, ball games and cycle/scooter rides. Don't forget to keep your stale bread to feed the ducks and geese at the pond, a minute's walk away!There are parking spaces in the square and we are happy to provide permits at a small cost. We provide Oyster cards which you can top up and use on the trains, buses and underground to travel around London. We also have a picnic rug and balls which you can use on the heath or in Greenwich Park. Check in and out times are negotiable. (When there are back-to-back bookings check out is 11am and check in is at 3pm.) For longer stays housekeeping can be arranged at an extra cost. Our kitchen is very well equipped with a wide range of cooking equipment. We provide basic such as salt and pepper, oil and vinegar as well as washing up liquid!More
