Thursday – September 27 – London
We had a crazy early start and reached Gare du Nord to embark on the 10:13 Eurostar to St Pancras, at 8:00. Anyway too early is better than too late. Much has been written about the Eurostar service and these paltry words would not do it justice. Suffice to say that it was a 300 kph dream! Will …

I managed to squeeze through the subs narrow spaces and knowing that the crew could stay submerged for 3 months at a time, were allowed only to wash once a month, nearly all smoked and had to also put up with air that was filled with diesel fumes plus that they were all volunteers drove home to me just how determined they must have been.

So, we haven't even left the country yet, and I am starting the blog. I'm trying different websites out and I quite like the map on this website. Today, Eddy collected his Indian Visa. That now makes both of us who have flights and visas to India! Eddy has been celebrating by going to watch the England friendly with Moldova, and I've been celebrating by decidely NOT going to the footy and instead having dinner with Jane and Bob. All in all, it has been ...

How has this b&b rated in the past?
Highly recommend. This is a top rated B&B. And, it's not too pricey. Small and intimate with our great hosts - Janice and James. Arnos Grove is about 20 minutes by underground to the City. We bought Oyster Cards and used the service every day. Book well in advance if you want a gentle experience

Historical Traveler Reviews Bay Tree House Bed & Breakfast London
My friend and I stayed at the Baytree for our 3 day trip to London and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Even though we live on the other side of the globe, we felt like we were at home. James and Janice were perfect hosts. The rooms were spacious and clean (we stayed in the Rose Room) and our bathroom was very roomy too - with heated towel racks. A fresh made to order breakfast each morning was a huge treat and the conversation around the table was great. My traveling companion fell ill while there and Janice and James did everything they could to make sure she was comfortable even offering to run to the market for her. They picked up our train passes for us and even arranged for a cab to come get us at 4:30am on the last day when we had to catch a very early train to Paris.
Clean, convenient and Super Friendly
James and Janice are very friendly, genial and obliging hosts who throw in extras, like Granola bars, cookies, cups of tea - you feel like a visiting friend more then a customer, but you don't feel cramped or squished into someones spare bedroom. Thier B&B is convenient to the Piccadilly line which goes through to Heathrow. They are in a quiet residential street that has shops and restaurants and Pub(s?) between their location and the tube station. The accomodation is very clean and top-notch, and the breakfast will not leave you hungry! Excellent value, and ever the more so since it is London! On my top list of best accomodation deals anywhere, anytime!
Book early - this is a deservedly popular B&B - !
My wife, our son (11) and I were with James & Jan for 4 nights and were delighted with every aspect of our stay. They were warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. It really was like staying with good friends.
As a family of five (3 teenagers) traveling is always an adventure! Some friends who live outside of London had recommended Bay Tree House Bed & Breakfast as a nice place in a quiet neighborhood not too far from the sites and just a short walk from "the tube".
Plans kept us from staying, but the friendliest B&B I found
Unfortunately we never got to stay at the Bay Tree House. We had a room booked for our family of four but circumstances kept us from fulfilling our vacation as planned. I would like to share that the Bay Tree House was the friendliest B&B in all my searching and emailing. From the looks of other reviews, this must be a wonderful place to stay. Maybe we will get there some other day.
This is a place I heartily recommend to anyone visiting London! Having stayed in some awful accommodation on previous visits, this was almost too good to believe! The rooms are large, comfortable and cosy, with ample storage space...the bathrooms are also large, with big showers and fantastic heated towel rails. All is kept spotless, yet the rooms are cleaned so discreetly that you barely notice anyone's been in! Breakfast is huge and delicious and can keep you going for most of the day! James and Janice are just lovely, so hospitable, making you feel like a guest in their lovely home and always ready to help out with anything! They really opened up their home to me and made me feel so comfortable. There's always 'nibbles' and a lovely conservatory in which to lounge about, plus tea and coffee anytime! Plus the area around is nice and quiet and feels very safe...and at the same time, so close to central London via the underground, with the station just a corner away. My only hesitation in recommending the place would be only for fear of finding it fully booked next time I'm in London! :) Otherwise, I suggest anyone who wants an experience in what was literally a home away from home visit this B&B.
We saw their homepage at internet and e-mailed them with a question of vacancy. The answer we got was long and we got a good feeling about the place.
We are a Norwegian couple with to children that stayed for three nights. We had the Blue Room. It was all we needed and everything was very tidy and clean. James and Janice were very helpful, but careful not to intrude. We all felt they opened their home to us and somehow included us.
The breakfast was good and tasty with good alternatives for the children. The pub just around the corner (Farmers) had exellent food and drinks.
This is a much better place to stay than in an anonymous hotel when you arrive from abroad and want to experience London.
Best B&B for the buck - and just like home!
James and Janice Monaghan run a superior B&B located in a quiet rediential area, just north of London. Bay Tree House has all the comforts of home, and the Monaghans invite you in as friends, not just as visitors. Their well-stocked kitchen and pantry is always open, and the conservatory is a perfect place to read, eat or sip a cup of tea. The rooms are also most comfortable, and our en suite double was a model of comfort.
I recommend this place without any hesitation - it's the model for all B&Bs!
When my wife and I arrived at the Bay Tree House after an 11 hour flight from LAX, an hour trip into London, followed by a 25 minute tube trip from Central London to Arnos Grove, we were ready for rest and relaxation. And we got it! James and Janice Monaghan welcomed us into their lovely B&B, took our heavy bags and offered us cool refreshment. James and Janice were the best hosts, ever! Ask about haggis at your own risk, I liked the spoonful that I sampled.
Lovely home, lovely people
This is a beautiful home in the suburbs of London. Jim and Janet (hosts) are so friendly and gracious, they make you feel as if you are related to them! The food is delicious, the rooms are charming and newly renovated, and it's a great value (especially for London). All the rooms have their own full bath with them. The tube is a four-minute walk from their house. There is also a large park nearby and a fabulous Indian restaurant. If we ever get back to London, we hope to stay here again.
