About our home

My Victorian cottage (1895) was recently gutted and thoroughly modernised, but leaving some original features. It has a well cared for garden front and rear and overlooks a common with mature oak trees. Each of the 2 bedrooms has an ensuite, one with bath and shower and one with shower. Downstairs there is an additional toilet with wash hand basin. The front room is a pretty reception room, with desk; the further accommodation comprises an open plan sitting room, dining room and modern kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher and Neff oven.
Transport via train to London takes around 35 minutes, the train station being a 10 minute drive away. Easily accessible by car are: Heathrow and Gatwick airports, Brighton and the south coast, historic buildings such as Hampton Court, Hever Castle, Leeds Castle. Dover castle and the Euro tunnel are around 2 hours away therefore a day trip to France is quite possible. In the near vicinity are National Trust properties and the RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) headquarters and beautiful gardens at Wisely. Cobham is a small, attractive town with restaurants, coffee bars, post office, banks and supermarkets and is a 3 minutes drive or a 20 minute walk away. Frequent buses go to the neighbouring towns of Kingston and Guildford for more adventurous shopping and sightseeing.
The cottage is in a row of 9 houses set back off of the Portsmouth road, and overlooking a pretty common. It is an extremely friendly neighbourhood.


More about us

  1. I am now single, though often travel with friends; I am 'retired' from full time teaching, French, Spanish and English to speakers of other languages, though I have had various other careers in my life. in my spare time, i play tennis, go walking and pottering around in my garden, learning new things each season. In the winter especially i love going to the cinema and the theatre. I have a daughter living in Melbourne with her young family and one daughter living closer to London, also with a young family. I am a 'friend' of several London art galleries and visit often.
