My home is quiet, cosy and spacious and you will be made very welcome. I live with my son who is 22 and two cats. I am semi-retired and he works most days for Marks and Spencers. There are local buses to Croydon, Bromley and beyond plus you can be in the centre of London within the hour with train stations around 20m walk away. Shirley is quite rural so has lots of lovely walks around as well as good restaurants and bars. An ideal base for solo adventurers and business travellers alike.
We have woods all around us and there are some nice walks plus there is a 185 foot garden!
Plenty of parking on the road if you have a car.
Buses are seven minutes away and train stations 20-25 minutes walk. Trains from West Wickham or Eden Park go to London Bridge, Cannon Street and Charing Cross.
