The Merton Park area of Wimbledon is perfect for enjoying London, with Northern Line tube and mainline rail links to all the attractions of central London, and a modern home in a quiet, residential street, for restful sleep.
We offer a spacious, bright double bedroom with sofa, desk and plenty of storage for your clothes, an adjacent bathroom, and an additional toilet. A beautiful kitchen, conservatory and garden are ready to be enjoyed. A continental breakfast is provided to start your day.
Our home will not only enable you to experience London, and all that it has to offer, but also has excellent links to Surrey and Hampshire, England's 'garden' counties.
Hampton Court Palace, the residence of Henry VIII, Kew Gardens, Wisley House and Gardens, Royal Kingston with its river front restaurants, and the traditional towns and villages of rural England are all close by.
Doylette and Jeff know the area well, and will be happy to advise you on paces to see, and how to get there. Enjoy your stay !
Your bedroom is exclusively your own - as you would expect - and this will be your private domain. The kitchen, conservatory, garden, and bathroom are all available for your use.
We have our own lounge, and our third floor bedroom has its own en suite bathroom, so we will have our own privacy when we need it.
Interaction with guests
Both of us have some day time commitments, but one of us will be available for help and advice most of the time, and we will be happy to exchange mobile numbers so that if there is any need to contact us, you can do so.
You will have your own key to the house, and will be able to come and go as you wish without worry.
Other things to note
The least expensive way to get around London using public transport means having an Oyster card, enabling you to touch pay for tube, train and bus.
We will provide two Oyster cards ready for you to use, and easy to top up at pay machines at any station.
We would like you to be comfortable and enjoy your stay, and prefer to keep our ‘house rules’ to the minimum.
Your privacy in your bedroom will be respected, and whilst use of the kitchen, conservatory garden and bathroom are all welcome, please respect our privacy in the other accommodation in the house.
We will avoid disturbing you with loud music, and would ask the same of you. If you are arriving back late at night, please come in quietly.
We have a large American fridge in the kitchen, and will provide you with shelf space. Crockery and utensils are there for you to use, but please clean these and tidy away as and when you finish with them. A dishwasher is available for crockery and cutlery.
Do please check all doors and windows are closed and locked when you go out. When you arrive back, please remove shoes in the hallway. Feel free to use the rack, or keep them in your room.
Our wi-fi is unlimited use, and the password will be provided on your arrival.
We look forward to welcoming you, and hope that you enjoy your stay.
I live with my partner Jeff. We are a very relaxed and easy-going couple. Jeff is a retired teacher, and a counsellor, and I work in hospitality. We love to travel and spend a lot of time with our families.
