About this property

Tucked away in the South-east London borough of Bexley, is this delightful 1930’s end of terrace holiday home, The Perch. Enjoying a fabulous location within easy reach of London City Centre and the coast, The Perch is a fantastic choice for couples or a family of five. Your new home from home benefits from its own off-road parking space, with additional parking available roadside. Inside, you will find an inviting sitting room, with plush sofas and a flat screen TV, perfect for relaxing evenings with loved ones, a dining room with seating for five, armchairs and a TV, and a well-equipped kitchen for rustling up tasty dishes. On warmer days, why not dine alfresco out in the rear enclosed garden, where you can fire up the barbecue and savour a glass of wine or enjoy an after-dinner stroll in the woodlands which back the property. Upstairs, you can indulge in a soothing soak in the bath or freshen up under the overhead shower, before choosing from one of three bedrooms to catch your rest, a double, a twin, and a single, all of which have plenty of storage. Explore your surroundings, where you can treat your loved ones to a tasty meal at the Old Bexley Greek Taverna, Ferraris Italian Restaurant, or hearty pub fare at The Black Dog, stock up on essentials at the convenience store, enjoy wildlife rich walks through Bexley Nature Reserve, or head over to Danson Park where you can savour a homemade picnic and visit the nearby National Trust site of Red House. Next stop is the famous capital city of London, where you can visit the royals at Buckingham Place, meet exotic animals at London Zoo, sample a wealth of cuisines at Borough Market, treat yourself to a West End performance at a vast selection of theatres or visit the renowned Tower of London and Madame Tussauds. For a day along the coast, enjoy a day trip to Southend-on-Sea, home to Adventure Island, Sealife Adventure, Southend Beach and Southend Pier. All this and more awaits at The Perch.

Bexley is a lovely London borough located in south-east London between the neighbourhoods of Bexleyheath and Swanley. The borough of Bexley is well recognised as one of London's greenest due to its abundance of parks and nature reserves, including the 200-year-old oak tree in Danson Park and the National Trust's Red House. In addition to the convenience store, there are other restaurants in the area to choose from, such as Ferraris Italian, the Old Bexley Greek Taverna, and The Black Horse. Bexley's proximity to London means that visitors may quickly and easily access the city's many famous landmarks, such as Buckingham Palace, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Madam Tussauds, Borough Market, Convent Garden, the London Zoo, and the National Trust's Fenton House and Garden. Rochester is further away and features attractions including the Rochester Castle, Rochester Cathedral, and the Guildhall Museum in addition to the Fort Amherst Heritage Trust.

  • Axel

    The house is lovingly furnished. Everything is very clean and in good condition. You can sleep wonderfully in the beds. The local transport connection to London is optimal. We'd love to come back.

  • Michael

    The cottage was clean, tidy and very well equipped. The hosts were very quick to come back to us when we communicated with them. We would certainly stay again.

  • Andrew
