Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Croydon, London, England, Your Home Away From Home

The town of Croydon is located in South London, England. The town also lends its name to the London Borough of Croydon, and is about nine and a half miles from Charring Cross. By staying in self catering accommodation in Croydon, you will have access to not only the city of London, but also the south coast as well. Whilst it might be convenient to have some form of independent transport, public services link Croydon with both the city and the south coast on a regular basis via bus and train.

Things to Do on Holiday in Croydon, London, England

Parks are an integral part of most towns and cities in the United Kingdom, and the Croydon area is no exception. If you are feeling that you need a day off from visiting all the tourist sites that London city centre has to offer, then a day spent at a park may be just the way to unwind. Some parks may be small, and are ideal to walk around, whilst others are good places to jog or cycle. South Norwood Country Park is a 125 acre reserve which will soon make you forget that you are actually in one of the biggest cities on earth. It even has an 18 hole pitch and putt course!

Places to Visit on Holiday in Croydon, London, England

By staying in self catering accommodation in Croydon, you will want to spend time visiting the central part of the city of London. With hundreds of years of history and tradition, one good area to start is Westminster. The Houses of Parliament, arguably the blueprint for modern democracies, can be seen here, along with the iconic Big Ben. Buckingham Palace, home to the Queen is not far away, and watching the changing of the guard there should be on everyone’s list. The obvious things such as museums, art galleries, shows and plays should also be on a “must do list”, as should watching a premiership football match if possible. Further afield, and outside of London, a day trip to the coast may be a nice idea, and Brighton is a popular destination accessible by public transport or motor vehicle.

Weather in Croydon, London, England

Rain can, and does, occur at any time, but more often than not comes in the form of a light drizzle. This can sometimes give the skies a grey look. Bringing a rain jacket is recommended for any holidays in Croydon, no matter what the time of year.

The facilities were just incredible, there is so much space (all of which is beautifully decorated). Catherine and Michael were really responsive and helpful in the run up to the night, and the deposit was returned quickly. Cooking for 18 could have been a nightmare, but the huge amount of fridge/freezer/oven/dishwasher space made it so easy. Needless to say the bride was blown away and we had an absolutely fantastic time. I would 100% recommend booking in here if you are looking for that extra 'Wow' factor.

We were there for a family holiday (adults and children). The children loved that there were toys and a trampoline outside. The patio was great to sit and talk after a day of touring. The bedrooms placed over three floors were comfortable, and allowed privacy for everyone. The train station was a short walk away to provide easy access for London touring (30-35 minute train ride). Any questions we had, Wendy and John were both very helpful.

We arrived on a Sunday and were met at the door, given a walk around and settled in. We were a group of four so two of us used the bedroom and the others used the sofa/bed in the living room. I had had my doubts about the bathroom as the photos do not show it very clearly, but it is completely private in the hallway between the bedroom and the living room. It has a heated towel rack and the whole apartment has a very good air conditioning system (we come from a warmer climate). Not having to go to the laundromat is a big asset (washer/drier worked perfect) and the well equipped kitchen enabled us to do some meals at home and save some money. The TV and internet worked great, lots of power outlets and all the cables to connect devices to the TV and modem. We brought our own IPTV box and was able to watch all our favourite programs and films. There is a great fish and chip shop just 2 minutes up the road (takeaway not a sit down, and they even had my favourite rock eel at a very reasonable price) and a couple of minutes more there is a Cooperative which has just about everything you need. We mainly used the railway, coming back in the evening at East Croydon station there is a Sainsbury's which closes at 11.00pm so we were able to pick up milk, juice etc and from there it's 5 minutes walk to the apartment. A short bus ride get's you to the Croydon Flyover where there is an open air street market, a poundland, a 99p and a Lidl.... and many more. Last year we stayed in the Croydon area, paid more for a small cramped and noisy apartment... this was a real find and have already recommended it to friends and family. Hopefully we will be back again next year. Thank you Gary for a really enjoyable holiday.
