My garden and I live in Clapham South West London.I am an ex caterer and traiteur and my interest in food and hospitality seems to carry on. I also have some local property as well as this secret garden full of foxes, squirrels, bees in their hives, magpies, wood pigeons, sparrows and a selection of tits. It is too good a place to keep to myself and so we share it with friends and neighbours and hopefully more campers.

This location is a hidden oasis in London. We were greeted with the host's warm smile, the sound of chirping sparrows and the taste of tangy blackberries freshly picked from the garden. We definitely look forward to returning next summer when the roses and elderflowers are in full bloom. Warning: remember to keep your shoes inside your tent; there's a local fox that has made a habit out of stealing them!
Host Pamela has responded
Martjin, thanks for kind words. Do come back in Spring or summer and we can have a jolly supper round the fire pit and drink chilled wine from the outdoor Frig. Thank you too for the fox alert. P

Positives: communication with the host was good, nice garden space, easy bus ride into London. Appreciated use of kettle inside house.
Negatives: we had a bag of food dragged away and eaten by foxes. A pair of Keen sandles also completely bitten through, also the outer of the tent. We are currently trying to get sandles and tent repaired. Host has said she will pay for the tent repair. Feels reasonable to pay for the sandles too. I've camped all over the world, including in bear country, never had this happen. If the foxes are that active, host need to warn campers.
Our camp space is cat, fox, squirrel and wild bird and frog friendly. Not great for dogs unless they are trained caring dogs.
No late night jolly parties and noise
