About the property

House in Eltham, Greenwich, London, England, UK - Very Quiet London Suburban Street

Beechhill House was built in 1903 on farmland in Kent owned by Cameron Corbett a Scottish temperance advocate. Thus there are no pubs until the High Street. As an M.P. he ensured that the new railway went through his estates and so Eltham Station is a short 10 minute walk. The very quiet tree lined street has well kept gardens and small drives. All the houses are double fronted and Beechhill House is at the end of a terrace of four. It has many original features including cast iron fireplaces, sanded wooden floors, dado and picture rails, cornices and coving but it has also been fully modernised. It has a large walled garden.

There are 4 twin bedded rooms, 2 are en suite, and one double en suite bedroom. There is a large family bathroom. On the ground floor there is a large lounge, small lounge with double sofa bed, toilet, fully equipped kitchen which leads into a large dining area with 2 sets of French windows leading to the patio and very large lawned garden with shrubs surrounding ii.

About Bethan Farrar

My husband and I live in Eltham. Our 3 grown up children have now left home.

We have lived in Eltham for over 40 years and love the place and its position. We get the advantages of London, the theatre, the museums, the castles, the palaces, the shops and yet live in a quiet street where neighbours know each other and we have the Kent countryside on our doorstep.

The opportunity arose to own Beechhill House in 2004 and we decided to renovate it and offer it as self catering accommodation to anyone who wanted to sample London and its surrounds.

Bethan Farrar.

Bethan Farrar purchased this house in 2004

Why Bethan Farrar chose Eltham North

We love Eltham, it's parks, greenbelt, proximity to Central London and the Kent countryside. We also love 'Corbett' houses(circa 1903).

What makes this house unique

Beechhill House has all modern facilities and yet retains the old fireplaces, picture and dado rails, cornices and ceiling mouldings of yesteryear.It has a large garden and patio.

The very quiet street is only 20 minutes by mainline train to London Bridge. Greenwich Park is 4 miles. Central Greenwich is 5 miles, the O2 Arena is 5 miles and the main Olympic stadium is 8 miles.

property exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as described. All the facilities worked well for our group. We were three generations of one family. Aged 3 to 64. Easy commute into central London. We came home with worn out feet but children still had energy to play in the garden. Lovely evening meal at The Barn easy walk away. High Street had everything needed for self catering in walking distance. .

Exceeded expectation!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Beechhill for a University reunion for a mixed group of 10 people (ages 28-43). The booking, check in and check out process was very easy and Bethan and Cass were wonderfully helpful and welcoming.

The house really did exceed expectation both in its location and facilities. It is a beautiful period property which is well maintained and modernised for comfort. I have previously rented houses that claim to be set up for self catering which have proved to only have the bare essentials. Beechhill is different, it is very well equipped with everything you would have in your own kitchen! The rooms were clean, with comfortable beds and the numerous bathrooms were perfect for a large number of guests.The large dining area is fantastic and seats 12 very comfortably with additional smaller tables available if required. The garden is a wonderful space if you have the weather to use it and there is a great view of London at night from the upper bedrooms!

I would 100% recommend this property. The description and details are accurate and the property was perfect for us.
