“We had a wonderful time at Jon and Selena's House in Forest Hill. We enjoyed their house and their garden a lot in a great neighbourhood (it's like you're in the countryside at 45 minutes of the center of London). Jon and Selena gave us a bunch of great advice and their hand-made city guides were a great pleasure to follow. Every time we had a question, Jon used to answer within ten minutes, which was particularly pleasant. We strongly recommend this place, you will not be disappointed!”

“Hemos pasado dos semanas perfectas en casa de Jon y Selena, disfrutando y conociendo Londres durante agosto 2019!!! Es una casa preciosa, muy bien comunicada con el centro de Londres y donde las recomendaciones de nuestros anfitriones también han sido en todo momento de gran ayuda para nosotros. La comunicación con ellos ha sido muy fluida y útil durante la duración del periodo del intercambio . Nuestra casa ha sido cuidada de forma exquisita. Sin ninguna duda la casa de Jon, Selena, Joe, Charlie.....y Sparky & Jef, es una gran elección para pasar en unas estupendas vacaciones en Londres. ”
“We spent 12 wonderful days in Forest Hill/ London. The Location is perfect for a family and for exploring London with its sights. The home is very cosy and well equipped, furthermore the Cox provide a loveley garden wich we used and enjoyed every single day. The communication was straight and easy, and they left our home in an absolut clean condition. We loved their cat Sparky and felt comfortable along the whole journey. To sum it up, it was our fifth swap and we can say : we are inspired - highly recommended.........”
“We had a great vacation in London with our two kids, 5 and 7. The lovely garden was the perfect place to rest and play after a day out. It is a calm, spacious and beautiful home, and yet with only 5 mins walk to a direct train to central London. Jon and Sel were the perfect hosts with many detailed suggestions for things to see and do. We were in immediate and frequent contact all the time. They also took excellent care of our home in the meantime. Thanks a lot, Jon and Sel!”
“We've just spent our Easter holidays in a fantastic, spacious and comfortable house in Forest Hill. Just less than 30 minutes to the centre of London, it is an ideal place for a family, with a big garden (trampoline, swings, etc) and the shops and restaurants at a short stroll away. Jon and Sel have been very helpful and nice to us and have left our apartment in a wonderful condition. We have definitely felt at home in this house, we do highly recommend a swap with them, and would love to swap again ourselves anytime.”
Where is it?
Forest Hill is a lively, multicultural district of South London that has really come into its own in the last few years. Our house is 4 minutes walk from the centre, which contains a range of shops (including a good sized Sainsbury's supermarket, a deli and an excellent butcher), pubs, restaurants, coffee shops and a swimming pool. There's a small supermarket at the end of our road, which stocks all the basics. There are even more places to eat, drink and shop in East Dulwich, just a 5-minute drive or bus ride away. Forest Hill even has its own superb museum, the Horniman, which is brilliant for kids, and sits in its own beautifully landscaped gardens atop a hill with stunning views out over the city.
We have excellent transport links. London Bridge and the Thames is less than 15 minutes away by train (the station is a 3-minute walk from our house), and we're on the London Overground, which is part of the Tube network. You can be in the West End in half an hour. We're about 40 minutes from Gatwick Airport by train via East Croydon.
