Within a 2 minute walk there is a 100 year old Lido which has been refurbished to make a fabulous new children's splash park, (best in the UK) although suited more towards 1 to 10 year olds. A lovely recreation park with great swings and slides, a Pub, Hairdressers, Chinese Restaurant , Taxi Office, Bus stops and a Library.
A 5 minute walk will take you to a Police Station, Public Houses, Doctors and a small Village with Supermarkets and fast food outlets and many other shops. There are also additional Hairdressers, Restaurants, Cafe and Banks with ATM machines.
If you like swimming there is a pool in nearby Bexleyheath as well as a Bowling Alley and Cinema.
We are within 5 miles of two huge shopping centers, Bluewater and Lakeside. Buses go straight there from Bexleyheath.
The train station is within walking distance or a short bus ride, and you can be in the center of London in 35 minutes. You can buy and all day or weekly travel card to London from the local shops, it can be used on all the buses, trains and underground to and from London as well as the local surrounding area. This cost for an adult approx £6 for a daily one.
We are a couple in our early 50s and 60s. My husband is retired from the Post Office and has a keen intrest in guitars and history. I am the proprietor of a local Pre-school and love musicals and wildlife programs.
I have seen many of the shows in London and could perhaps assist you to get tickets to the shows if required.
We have three children, all who have flown the nest but we often holiday all together.
Our two daughters work with me at the pre-school and our son teaches maths in Manchester England.
He speaks very good Spanish and our eldest daughter can speak a little Spanish and French too.
We have 6 cats, all of which are spoilt I'm afraid! We would hope that you wouldn't mind sharing the house and garden with them and feeding them during your stay. We would be more than happy to do the same for you if you have pets.
We have travelled to India, Africa and The Caribbean but are particularly fond of love Spain for the weather, water and wonderful people :-)
