This contemporary wooden and glass garden room, with ensuite bathroom (with shower), is a self-contained space at the bottom of our garden. With independent access, guests can come and go as they please, and are not overlooked by anyone, as our garden is down a hidden pathway, a good few metres from the flat. It is a magical little urban spot, full of light and shade from the trees which surround it, French windows which open onto the garden, a table tennis table next to it, and a garden which is still more of a dream than reality at the moment, due to terrible Spring weather.
The bed is a day bed from Ikea with two sturdy foam mattresses, so it can be used as single or fold out into a big double. It is super comfy as a single and sofa bed comfy as a double. The flat/garden room is just two minutes' walk from New Cross Gate station (only one stop from London Bridge) , and twenty minutes to Stratford for the Olympic stadium. Our garden backs on to the railway track so if you don't like the sound of trains, this one won't be for you. But noone has minded so far, as it adds to the urban-rural contrast of it all. There are tea & coffee making facilities, and a TV with DVD only, and wi-fi access. Towels, sheets etc. all provided and the room is heated, although it is unlikely you will need it during summer months.
Telegraph Hill Park, a gorgeous urban park is just five minutes walk away, with an adjoining community run cafe, tennis courts and a lovely children's playground. There are also great views over London from the park . There is a big Sainsburys supermarket just three minutes' walk away, free parking on our road, and plenty of buses to Greenwich, Blackheath and Central London. Minimum booking two nights. Please note that this garden room is not ideal for people with restricted mobility. Also, we do get foxes in London, and so don't be surprised if you see one in the garden. It is now a very common sight in London, but some visitors get a shock. They won't harm you, just clap your hands and he/she will run off. And if you don't like the sound of birds, then a garden room probably isn't your scene. Or bring some earplugs. Sorry, but can't stop nature.
