Croydon, London
Bed & Breakfast

Textiles on the walls, fish in the pond - Sue and Tim have created a heart-warming B&B. Central London is 20 minutes by train


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


This part of London is full of sky, trees and wildlife; Pissarro captured on canvas the view up the hill in 1870 (the painting is in the National Gallery). There’s good stuff everywhere – things hang off walls and peep over the tops of dressers; bedrooms are stunning, with antiques, textiles, paintings and big, firm beds. Sue, a graduate from Chelsea Art College, employs humour and intelligence to put guests at ease and has created a special garden too. Tim often helps with breakfasts: eggs to order, good coffee. Owls hoot at night, woodpeckers wake you in the morning, in this lofty, peaceful retreat.

When the noise and pace of central London became too much, Fox Hill gave us a restorative weekend break. Comfy bed, handmade textiles all around, a fishpond and an informal garden in bloom– I felt immediately at home and felt my body start to relax. We loved sitting by the kitchen window watching our meals being prepared. Sue is an incredible cook- we loved her homemade Seville orange marmalade as well as her refreshing elderflower drink. We stayed for dinner, and I found myself reaching for a 3rd helping of her orange infused mashed turnips! We left much renewed and will be back!
