About our home


Our lovely home was completely renovated in 2016. It is a beautiful and relaxed base for family life while enjoying the wealth of wonderful things London has to offer - all at just a stone`s throw away. The house has 4 bedrooms (2 x with king size double beds, 2 x children`s rooms (each with a European size single bed), 2 bathrooms, a spacious open-plan family kitchen / lounge area, with French doors leading out into our garden. The garden comes kitted with a children`s trampoline and a funky-lit area to sit and eat in. We have a lovely, separate adult lounge room (smart TV / Netflix etc) - great for movies.

The area we live in is special. It`s a quiet, residential area minutes from trendy Brixton (15 mins by bus; 25 mins walk). It is also an exceptionally friendly community for London - each year we jointly host what has become a famous street party for the area. Brixton is Zone 2 - that is a 10 minute direct tube ride to the heart of London (Oxford Circus, Trafalgar Square etc).

We would be interested in 1-2 week house swaps during school holidays, or potentially long weekend house swaps.

Please note we have a cat. She is friendly and keeps herself to herself. She has an automatic feeder and cat flap so does not need attention apart from some fresh water occasionally. She generally stays out of the bedrooms. However if you have any minor allergies, don't hesitate to let us know and we can be extra careful to keep her out of bedrooms for weeks in advance - if that's useful. Because of our cat (she is very beautiful!) we can't accept other pets - sorry! For points swap we may ask for a contribution towards the cleaning fee.

About the location
Brixton has become very cool in recent years. We have Brixton Village, which is now home to the most vibrant restaurant scene in London, plus the nightlife, shopping, a fantastic leisure centre and the independent Ritzy cinema - all well-known and celebrated by Londoners.

Our house is also less than a 5-minute stroll to Brockwell Park - considered one of London`s hippest open spaces, which has a state of the art playground, paddling pool, BMX track, walled garden, tennis courts, popular cafe, outdoor lido, spa and gym and all kinds of community events over the summer. A 10-minute walk across the park also brings you to the many independent pubs, cafes and boutiques of Herne Hill - which has a street market every Sunday which attracts people from across London.
