About the Area
We are only 25 minutes from the center of London. The Cockfosters and Oakwood area is a beautiful part of North London. Cockfosters is famous for being at the end of the Piccadilly Line, probably the best line on the Underground System. We have great transport links to all parts of the United Kingdom. We have numerous great parks and the area has great restaurants and shops for guests to visit. It is an affluent area that is very quiet and safe. Quests love the tranquility the area has after a long hot day visiting the attractions in London.

very friendly and the facilities are first class!!.
Eine Übernachtung bei Kate und Andy ist wirklich lohnenswert. Die Zimmer sind alle hell und freundlich und vorallem sauber. Mega bequeme Betten und das Essen das Kate am Abend zaubert schmeckt wirklich gut. Sie geben einem Tipps über London und was es zu entdecken gibt. Zudem hat Andy mich an der U-Bahn Station mit dem Auto abgeholt, was ich sehr aufmerksam fand. Wirklich empfehlenswert bei Ihnen zu übernachten!
Very comfortable and welcoming.
Andy was a gracious host in the absence of Kat who was away attending to family matters. Room was very clean and bathroom facilities were superb...equivalent to 4 star hotel. There was a widespread of food for the buffet breakfast. AT my request, Andy also me sunny side up eggs for my breakfast. House was also clean and there was a huge garden where you can have a BBQ or sit in the garden enjoying the sun in the summer. Transport was also provided to/fro house/underground station which is barely 7 minutes away. If you are looking for a really good place to stay at a reasonable price in a quiet, green and clean environment, do not look further but book at Kate's place. Will definitely recommend this homestay to my friends.
Andy and Kate are the most wonderfull people you would like to be hosting you
