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.

Kate and Andy excellent and wonderful and beautiful house, clean and eating delicious that They are no 1 place in the all homestay
Thank you Kate and Andy and Nick
Kate is a very nice person...i spent one week with her ,nick and andy and it has been the most amazing week I've ever had... they are nice friendly and very available.. in one week we've made two special barbecue where i ate and laughed.. the tube is near the house and to get to the centre it just takes 30 minuts.. if I'll come back in london i would like to stay again with them.
Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit bei Kate und ihrer Familie! So stellt man sich Homestay vor! Nette Menschen, die uns liebevoll aufgenommen haben, uns Tipps gegeben haben, mit uns abends eine tolle Zeit verbracht haben mit gemeinsamem Essen (Kate ist eine super Köchin!), Spielen, Reden. Wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt! Eine Wohlfühl-Oase im Grünen, die gut tat nach einem langen Tag im quirligen London. Unsere 12-jährige Tochter hat schon angekündigt, dass sie wiederkommen will! Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit bei euch!
We had a wonderful time with Kate and her family! So should Homestay be! Nice people who received us with love, gave us tipps, spent great time with us in the evenings with eating together (Kate is a fantastic cook!), playing games, talking. We felt like home! An oasis for feeling good a little bit outside central London, which was good after a long day in the bustling London. Our 12 year-old daughter has already announced that she will come again! Thanks for the great time with you!
I stayed with Kate and Andy for approximately 6 weeks in June and July 2016 and had a great time during my stay in the UK. They made me very welcome, I had a lovely room, and the meals Kate provided were to die for. Their home is close to the tube and approximately 30 minutes to the centre of London. Will definitely book again when in the UK. I would highly recommend staying in their home. Sharron.
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
I loved this experience! I stayed here one week in may and I felt really at home! Everything was excellent: from the room to the food. 5-star truly earned!
I'll absolutely come back the next time I'll stay in London. I hope see you soon Kate and Andy!
Great Expereince ! I totally felt at home while staying in Kate and Andy's house during my recent visit to London.
Everything was good exactly as how the other guests' review. Andy picked me up from the station few minutes after I called them upon my arrival. He drove me around showing the surrounding area before getting home. I found it very useful for my instant settling down.
Thank you Andy for your thoughtfulness.
Kate is a lovely lady and very good chef. Hence, I have a fruitful trip not only able to visit lots of places but also I learned Kate's way of cooking. Super delicious and healthy style. During the stay I alway tried to make home slightly earlier before dinner just to learn from her. I enjoy practicing English with you Kate and thank you for the cooking lessons/tips and cook books.
Kate is extraordinary caring too. She cooks separated dish for young guest who is particular in appetite. No matter you are of what ages, from kid to elderly I recommend you not to miss this touched experience when visiting London.
Thank you Kate and Andy. Please send my regards to my house mates. I understand they will be visiting this big international family again, so do I.
PLEASE STAY HEALTHY AND HAPPY !!!
