“My daughters and I stayed in the family house for a week. The point was to find a house in London because they were taking summer courses at the University. Sonya and Dave´s house is more than that: it´s a nice and quite house IN London! The great experience was to both enjoy the crowded center of London (by tube it takes 30 min to reach Piccadilly Line) and the silence of Barnet´s neighbourhoud. We would really recommend a swap with this nice family. They made our stay confortable and easy by being in contact during the exchange. So, if you want to visit London, sleep well and meet good people (including Cleo, their cat): that´s definitively your place to go!”
Where is it?
Barnet is a great location because it is in Greater London and on the tube; also it is close to the countryside. Our house is in a quiet road. We are 15-20 minutes' walk from Cockfosters tube station, which takes you into the centre of London in 35-40 minutes or 12-15 mins walk from Oakleigh Park Station which takes you into London in 20 mins approx. We feel we have the best of both worlds, with the protected woodland to the back of the house and the proximity to London also.
Behind the woods there is a park with a play area, tennis courts and a cafe.
We are 10-15 mins walk from East Barnet centre and a short car/bus journey from High Barnet or Whetstone. Also 15 mins walk from Cockfosters centre. Each of these places has shops, cafes and restaurants with easy parking. We are minutes by car from the M25 motorway which takes you to a multitude of interesting places outside of London.
