About our home

A perfect base for exploring London, our house is large and well-appointed. With two double bedrooms, one single bedroom, a cute attic and a separate office, there is plenty of space for all. Open-plan kitchen and living room, it opens onto a lovely sunny garden. Surbiton is in south-west London, not far from Wimbledon or Hampton Court. Regular trains from Surbiton - 20 mins to Waterloo.

We have a friendly tabby cat called Monty, who would need feeding if you came to stay. Use of our car subject to negotiation. There are lots of lovely places to visit near Surbiton - the Surrey Hills, Hampton Court, Bushy Park, walks along the river Thames, Richmond, Teddington Lock, to name a few.

We ask for a £60 cleaning fee on departure. Strictly no smoking please. Please ask if you have any questions!
