We had a great stay here. Magdalena is a wonderful host; she is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. She welcomed my wife and I warmly and accommodated our needs, treating us as friends as well as guests. The cottage itself is situated within walking distance of St Mary’s Cray train station which allows easy access to the center of London, but it is also in good driving distance to some beautiful areas in Kent. The cottage is close to a local convenience store which is handy for picking up bits and pieces. It’s also very easy to access Orpington town center, which is quite large and has plenty of pubs and restaurants. The cottage is nicely decorated with a traditional feel. The room and private bathroom are the only two rooms upstairs, which gives you a sense of privacy. The bathroom is big and well furnished with a very nice bath. The bedroom is comfortable, and Magdalena provides plenty of towels, cutlery and most things you might need for a long stay including a place to make tea and coffee. She also takes care of washing towels, bedsheets, and hoovering. It’s an ideal location for anyone who wants to take advantage of London city, the Kentish country side or both. Highly recommended.
Magdalena is a lovely and welcoming host! She replied to all messages promptly and was very warm and welcoming when I arrived. The room is as advertised and is cosy and comfortable. The bathroom is as lovely as it looks in the photos and I enjoyed a soak in the tub! There are coffee and tea facilities in the room, a Brita jug, and plenty of towels. The bed is comfortable and I slept well. The house is not too far from the train station and a bus stop, and there is parking if you come by car. There are 2 lovely dogs in the home and they are very well-behaved. The guest room is upstairs and the dogs do not come upstairs. The dogs are well-trained and quiet so you won’t know they are there unless you want to pet them which is really nice too! Overall I was pleased with the accommodation and I feel it is fairly priced. Magdalena is a welcoming host and a very interesting lady to chat with. I really enjoyed my stay and would happily stay here again!
