This large, comfortable Victorian family house, is situated on Fox Hill in South London which descends from the Crystal Palace ridge. Fox Hill was immortalised by the French painter, Camille Pissarro who painted the view up the hill in 1870, and this can be seen in the National Gallery. Crystal Palace is the highest spot in London, and the site of a vast glass building relocated here after the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park of 1851.
We’ve been running our B&B in this house since falling in love with the area: particularly the clean air, open skies, huge variety of trees (the lungs of a city) and unique vantage point over London. The house is furnished with textiles, paintings, antique furniture and sculpture. The large comfortable beds are covered with quilts, some of them antique. The atmosphere is informal and guests are folded into the life of the house. We are happy to advise visitors to London how to make the most of their stay.
Crystal Palace is a cycling-friendly area.
