    Property Description

    This studio is just one of several in splendid Victorian Mansion owned by us for many years and tastefully converted into separate apartments, each with different specifications for varying budgets and individual needs. Our guests include a mixture of short term holiday lets, slightly longer stay for career or academic studies and longer-term tenants who enjoy living here and working in London.

    The space

    A delightful self-contained studio apartment in a period residence. This newly refurbished apartment has been completely remodelled but manages to retain all of its period features and charm. From the high ceilings and generous Victorian windows to the original exposed brickwork all combined with concessions for modern living which make any length of stay a pleasure. 
    As with our other apartments great care has gone into choosing the interior fittings and we have made a special effort to ensure that everything you will need for you stay, from bedding to pots and pans to hairdryers and ironing board….are provided for your use. 
    This residence features a communal laundry room, with washing machines and tumble dryers, which although not free are heavily subsidized and you can wash a load from just £1. 
    This particular Studio features a separate kitchen and bathroom so it feels particularly spacious. As you can see in the photos there is the comfort of a leather sofa and the additional convenience of a table and chairs for dining. 
    The flat screen TV is 49'' HD 4K and the picture quality is excellent, it's mounted on a special bracket so as you can see it from where ever you are in the room. 
    Free WiFi is included and the code is made available in the guests welcome book which you can find in the apartment, together with a host of other information which we consider you may find useful.


  • The following is information on how to get to the apartment from various Airports, it’s up to date and accurate so you can use it to plan your journey.  

    Instructions for travelling to the apartment from London's Heathrow Airport. 

    There are several ways to reach the apartment from London’s Heathrow Airport and of course it's up to you (and your budget) to decide.

    Private car hire/taxi is a great option and I can recommend an excellent car service which you can easily book online.  When you at the airport they will be waiting with a placard with your name on. 


    They will take you directly to the apartment and the drive takes around 50 minutes or more depending on the traffic. 
    Expect to pay around £55 for up to four people. Larger vehicles are available for those with lots of luggage or larger groups. For four persons with minimal luggage this works out at less than £15 each so is well worth considering particularly when you factor in the hassle of getting on and off trains with baggage and/or children.
    Another option is by underground from Heathrow. Take the Piccadilly Line from the terminal 1-2-3 and get off at ‘Gloucester Road’ underground station. This takes about 36 minutes. Change platform for the ‘Victoria Line’ board the train and get off at ‘London Victoria’. This takes about 6 minutes.  
    Victoria is a main line station and here you must leave the underground part of the station and go to the main overland part. You can board a fast (14minutes) overland train directly to East Croydon. Remember there is no underground train to East Croydon but a fast and regular overland service. 
    Check the board at the station for you next fastest train to East Croydon and take that train. When you arrive at East Croydon, exit the station at the FRONT entrance/exit that is using the ramp at the end of the platform not up the steps in the middle.

    Turn left out of the front and you will see a taxi rank, you can take a taxi from here if you wish, costs around £5 or make the 12-minute walk to the apartment. 
    The journey takes around 1hr 15mins and will cost around £12 each person. 

    There is also an option by bus. The X26 runs from Heathrow Airport terminal bus station and goes to East Croydon Station.  This apparently costs around £2 and the journey takes 1hr 40 minutes plus, depending on the traffic. Great value but a bit slow.  

    Instructions for travelling to the apartment from London's Gatwick Airport:

    Although you can travel by taxi from Gatwick airport (see link above) I recommend that you travel by train, it is fast, inexpensive and very convenient.

    When you arrive at Gatwick Airport follow the signs for the train station. If you are in a different terminal you may have to make a short hop using their shuttle. 
    Once at the station purchase a ticket for East Croydon Station and check the departure board for the next fastest train and the relative platform. 
    The journey normally takes around 20 minutes and most trains go directly to East Croydon or make very few stops. 

    Instructions for travelling to the apartment from London's Stanstead Airport:

    Once again please consider the taxi company I recommend; www.airporttaxis-uk.co.uk using this company a taxi from Stanstead airport is around £70 excellent value when you consider that the journey by train involves several changes. 

    If you do decide to travel by train this is what you need to do:

    When you arrive at Stanstead Airport follow the signs for Stansted Airport train station, purchase a ticket for East Croydon.  
    Take the train to Tottenham Hale Underground station, trains run every 10 minutes and it takes around 32minutes. 
    Change here for the underground to London Victoria takes 20min and runs every 5 minutes. 
    Once at London Victoria check the departure board for the next fastest train to East Croydon and proceed to the relative platform, takes 14 mins and they are every 5 minutes. Cost is around £25. 

    A cheaper way to travel is by taking the bus or express coach from Stanstead Airport directly to Victoria and taking the train from there. Coach is normally about £10 and the train from Victoria is around £6. 
    Instructions for travelling to the apartment from London's Luton Airport:

    Once again you can take the taxi but the train ride is relatively painless given that it is a direct route to East Croydon station and the trains are frequent.

    Once at Luton Airport find a train ticket vendor or machine and purchase your ticket for East Croydon. 
    Proceed outside to the bus station where you will find the shuttle bus which will take you directly to Luton Parkway rail station and normally takes just a few minutes. 
    At the station check to departure board for the next fastest train to East Croydon, normally platform four. 

    When you arrive at East Croydon, exit the station at the FRONT entrance/exit that is using the ramp at the end of the platform not up the steps in the middle.

    Turn left out of the front and you will see a taxi rank, you can take a taxi from here if you wish, costs around £5 or make the 12-minute walk to the apartment. 
    It's a direct train and normally takes around 1 hour 15 minutes. Cost is around £17. 

    Alternatively, you can take a coach to Victoria but there is not a lot of point to this other than if the trains aren't running or you feel a strong desire to sample London's famous traffic! :-)

      A well furnished and cozy studio apartment A well furnished and cozy studio apartment, perfect for a couple. Comfy beds and sofas, with all the essential amenities provided. It will be more pleasant if there's an a/c in the room during summer, but that is still fine as there is a fan provided. Travel-wise, the bus stop is right up front less than 5 minutes walk. Even though the location is a little far off from central London, getting around is still accessible with the proper time management, though it can be a little more costly if you intend to just visit around zone 1 and 2. Other than that the studio is clean and well thought of, with an instruction manual for everything around the house.

      The flat was gorgeous, well equipped Gary's place is excellent for 1 to 2 people. The apartment is well furnished and is filled with all of the basic amenities! It is about a 17 minutes walk to the train station or less than 5 on the bus (which is only a few feet from the front of the flat). It is relatively easy to get into Central London with trains leaving East Croydon Station every 10 minutes. The flat was gorgeous, well equipped, comfortable and spacious. The onsite laundry was great and inexpensive. Grocery shops are plentiful and nearby, same with pubs. All in all, I had a great stay and if I am every back in the city, I will definitely look to see if this room is available!

      The place is clean, the bed is comfortable Gary's place is a fantastic place to for a single person or a couple. The flat is exactly as pictured. The place is clean, the bed is comfortable, the kitchen is fully stocked, WiFi works great. Everything you need to have a comfortable home base for a trip to London. My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and we had no complaints or issue. The only negative is the shower is a little bit on the smaller side but that's not a huge deal. Also be advised that daily trips on the rail to London do add up but that would be the case no matter where you stayed. We would highly recommend this place to anyone traveling solo or a couple.

      The space itself was lovely. Its spacious and bright My partner and I stayed at Gary's place for 3 weeks while we visited the UK. The check in process was extremely easy and quick, no issues at all. The place is equipped with everything we needed during our stay, and it's in a great location. It's only about a 15 minute walk to the train station and from there you can easily catch a train to all the tourist attractions. His place is conveniently placed near a grocery store as well as some restaurants. The space itself was lovely. Its spacious and bright, and it has a nice home feel to it that made us very comfortable instantly. We have nothing bad to say about Gary's place. We thoroughly enjoyed our stayed and we would definitely stay here again if we are ever in the London area.
