Why Nic Andela chose London

The Pump House has always drawn the most amazing people together over the years and has always forms the greatest friendships.

Not only is it a great spot, but allows you such easy and convenient access to the best sites London offers!

Initially it houses a bunch of dr's at a local hospital but now is a brilliant resting and holiday place for yourself.

We are great hosts and there will always be someone to meet and welcome you when you arrive. So feel rest assured.

We are literally 2 minutes walk to the Canada Water Jubilee tube line which gives you great East and West access to Stratford and Central London.

The location is great, the Tube is within minutes along with buses. The Pump House was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Pump House! The location was great with the Tube right around the corner along with Bus Service and groceries and restaurants. We had 10 people in our party and it was a wonderful way to start the day with breakfast and head out, return in the evening for dinner or to relax. Nic and Nicky have thought of everything, we would love to come back and this is going to be our place to stay! Highly recommend to families or groups of friends! Thanks for having us!

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Pump House. Great location a few steps away from the tube and very close to the Thames path with plenty of space. It was spotlessly clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful. A real find for us and would definitely stay again when we're next in London. Thank you Nic and Nicky.

A memorable stay

  • 5 of 5

I would just like to say thank you to Nic , Nicky and Lily for the warm welcome and beautiful house. The house was perfect for our needs, given that there were eight of us .It is a spacious, well-equipped, immaculate, "happy" house in a very safe area, as well as being within walking distance of a local supermarket and mall. Our hosts were always ready to help and answer any questions we had regarding the house and our stay there. We couldn't have asked for more.Thank you for making our stay a memorable one. Best wishes Martina

Perfect location, wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

When I was looking for a place for our family to stay during our London trip, I kept feeling drawn to the Pumphouse listing. It seemed to me to have the character and style I was looking for, but I had to look to the reviews to find out if the location was convenient. Well, if you are wondering the same thing let me reassure you: this location could not have been better! If you are feeling energetic, you can enjoy a walk from the flat into London itself (those of us over 60 needed a few more rest stops than the others 😆); but after you've shopped and explored all day, it's nice to know that the tube will bring you right to the Canada Water Station which is practically on your doorstep.

The flat itself is roomy, comfortable and welcoming-nicely decorated but not overwhelmingly so. All of our group from preteen to grandparents were able to be. together when we wanted yet had the privacy that makes for a good night's rest.

As for the Andelas, I can't say enough about their kindness, hospitality and attention to detail. They were quick to answer any text and genuinely seemed to care that we had a wonderful holiday. The blue binders full of information were especially helpful . Thanks so much, Nic and Nicki!

The Pump House is a charming converted water pumping station with original features, cobbles, towers and old rail tracks located in Rotherhithe - zone 2, which is very close to central London and close to the 2012 Olympic centre. There is a large courtyard with parking available. The house has a private walk way to the Canada Water tube station (Jubilee tube line), which is less than a minute from the front door. Canada water will give you direct access to Stratford station and the 2012 Olympic Park in 10 minutes.

You will also be 15 minutes from central London - Bond Street on the same tube line.

The property is positioned between Southwark Park to the south and the Thames River to the north.

The Mayflower and Angel Pub's are also with 5-10 minutes walk from the house on the River Thames. The Mayflower ship in 1620 and it's passengers were to become the most famous Americans ever, the Pilgrim Fathers.

The Brunel Museum is also close by and shows where the first River Thames Tunnel was constructed.
