a word from the owner...

"I've been living here for about four years now, just before the pandemic! Lock-down gave me a chance to really explore the area and go for long walks to discover how many green spaces thhere are around here. As well as unexpected bits of history like Barking Abbey and Eastbury Manor House. I joined the running club (Barking Road Runners) in 2021 and they're so friendly and welcoming, they've quickly become my good friends. I also ride my bike along the CS3 to the Greenway and then onto Stratford or into town, which is all incredibly safe! On a longer run I might go to the Greenway again, or Wanstead Flats or to do a tour of all the local parks (there's so many!) The pub close to Barking Park is currenly being refurbished and looks like it will be a great spot for a drink in the garden or a Sunday roast in the winter. There's also the Riverboat cafe which is really cute & does good cocktails. Barking has pretty much everything you need - supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, leisure centre and is really well connected to get whereever else you need to go (West into town or East to the sea!)"
