Description

The space

One single bed + one pull out bed in a south facing double room with use of a recently modernised Mediterranean style bathroom during your stay.
In the room there is a wardrobe, chest of drawers, a desk for your laptop.
Guests have tea/coffee/chocolate making facilities but we welcome you into our lounge for tea and a chat if you want.

Our 30 year old house is in a quiet close one kilometre from Sidcup railway station running 4 trains per hour into London.
We are the same distance away from the High street which boasts lots of restaurants, mainly Chinese, Indian, European. Otherwise it is a normal high street with a Morrison's supermarket and Iceland. Near to the railway station is another collection of shops including a Co-op and a Tesco Metro.
Breakfast is optional but again I like it to be booked the evening before.
I don't mind guests cooking their own evening meal/sharing my fridge if I know in advance.
Use of the washing machine is an extra cost.
Local attractions include properties built in the Arts and Crafts era and Eltham Palace belonging to English Heritage. We are a half hour bus ride away from Greenwich where you can see the fastest and only surviving tea clipper in the world; spend a day in the most magnificent parkland and visit the Royal Observatory. Greenwich is a place of culture, history and magnificent views. It is not to be missed. Some of the attractions are free as is the observatory; some have to be aid for such as the Cutty Sark and the planetarium and some have to be booked in advance for instance the Werner collection in the Ranger's house.
We love helping people to find their way around our district.
I have a few leaflets for the area and guide books for London.

Sidcup is in travel Zone 5 and 12 miles outside Charing Cross. To keep the traffic flowing well Transport for London like you to purchase an Oyster card (deposit needed) - and it's cheaper than paying with money. This can be charged with GBP at a train/tube station or over the internet ((URL HIDDEN) and then you just swipe it on all trains, tubes, buses and trams all day and it won't take more than the travel card price of £10.50 per day.
We have frequent buses to nearby towns and the train takes 35 minutes into the West End. We border on Kent with lovely walks and interesting towns not far away. What more could a person want?

If you would like to join us for dinner that can be arranged. I like cooking and my price is reasonable at £5 per head for 2 courses plain or £7 including wine.

Guest access

The room is for the guest only but sometimes the bathroom is shared.

Interaction with guests

This is our home. Guests are given a key for the duration of their stay and are expected to come and go as they please within reason. We are always here but lead busy lives. We like to know if a guest is planning to arrive back later than 10pm.

The neighbourhood

Our house is in a quiet close but in part of greater London. There is a park nearby. Sidcup High Street and near the railway station has many restaurants of varying quality and prices.

What can I say. Communication before the stay was great. A warm welcome from Lynton when we arrived (thanks for putting up with out arrival after 10pm). Facilities were great and the room spacious and comfortable. Lynton and Susan made us feel very welcome in their home. Well located for our visit in Sidcup and easy to fine. Hopefully we will be needing to come back to Sidcup and would definitely consider staying here again (I will bring more Yorkshire supplies).

Lynton and Susan are wonderful hosts who made me feel more like a friend than a paying guest. Thank you so much for making me so welcome. The home was lovely and clean and comfortable and the offer of a breakfast to suit was excellent. I recommend their home to anyone looking for a place to stay.

You get the personal touch here. You feel like a guest rather than a client.

I couldn't be more pleased with my stay. It was my first time using Air BNB and I wanted to make sure I picked someone with high ratings. Lynton and Susan immediately made me feel welcome, and at ease. They are very easy to talk to and we had some great conversations. The location was good with a short walk away from the train station and high street. The bedroom and bathroom was very clean. Susan's cooked breakfast was amazing and I was so full I couldn't finish it! There is a reason why they are the highest rated and it was proven why. Fully recommended.

A mum with an empty nest most of the time. Being married to an engineer means that things around the house work. We are Grandparents keeping the wheels of industry turning during school (URL HIDDEN) Methodist Church organist and Local Preacher we take an active interest in our church and fellowship. Problem solving is our speciality so ask us about our locality and we will do our best to fill in the gaps. In the past we have helped out with a Chambres D'Hotes in the South of France both running it and getting it ready. We loved travelling in France with a small caravan and Airbnb is our way of holidaying without one.
When we travel out of Europe there are 1 or2 things missing....the BBC and fresh cow's milk.
