A well appointed and located cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in an excellant location, well equipped and very well maintained. Kirsty's weclcome was warm and generous - nothing was too much trouble. It is ideally located with easy access to central London or walks in the forest. The proximity of shops is a bonus.

Welcoming & Adorable Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Three of us recently stayed at this adorable little cottage in Buckhurst Hill. The home was clean, well equipped with amenities, it smelled amazing, and we couldn't ask for anything more.

Buckhurst Hill is outside the city of London but a very easy trip on the tube to get into central London. The tube station is a short walk from the cottage. There is a park behind the cottage and a great restaurant/bar literally feet from your doorstep. There is also a market for groceries very close by.

After a long flight from New York to London, Kirsty the owner, kept in great contact with us to arrange our arrival. She is a lovely woman and I hope we remain in touch. London was a stop on this trip as part of my 40th birthday and Kirsty went over the top to remember that bit of information only given to her at the beginning of our communication. Definitely the best host I've had the pleasure of meeting this far.

If you are looking to visit London but want to get away from the hustle & bustle I highly recommend this home. If we ever come back to the UK, I would stay here again no question.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Made to feel really welcome by the owner Kirsty on arrival. The cottage had a cosy friendly feel and was immaculate with all modern amenities and the back courtyard was lovely.

It was an ideal location, close to a lovely pub with excellent food and welcoming to children. Lovely shops and high street 2 minutes away and 5 minutes to the tube station.

We loved our stay and our daughter is counting down the days for our return. Thanks to Kirsty and Tom for a great experience.

The property was great in a fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was bigger than I expected. Very clean and the beds were very comfortable. In a great location just a tube ride to London attractions.

Kirsty was very welcoming and helpful all the way through our stay.

Beautifully presented cosy cottage.

We spent 2 nights and didn't want to leave. The cottage has everything that you would need and really is a home from home.
