Lovely, comfortable double room in stylish, modern Wimbledon house, with free use of lounge, kitchen and garden. A 10-15 minute walk from Wimbledon town and the overground/District line station. Also, easy access to Wimbledon village and the common.

The Space

The room is at the back of the house, overlooking the garden and so tends to be very quiet.

Full use of kitchen, dining room, lounge and garden. Breakfast is not included, but coffee and tea making facilities are available in the room. And you are more than welcome to make use of the kitchen to prepare a meal.

Guest Access

Off street parking can usually be arranged if required, but please inquire about this when booking. Free unlimited use of wi-fi is available.

Check-in and check-out times are usually pretty flexible. Please do let me know what time you expect to be arriving.

Interaction with Guests

I mostly work from home so I'm around most of the time. I will definitely always be here to great you, show you around and make sure you have everything you need. And I'm quite happy for you to join me in the lounge in the evenings for a chat, a drink, watch TV etc. Or there is a TV with DVD player in the bedroom if you prefer some privacy.

I also have two ginger tabby cats - Toby and Twiglet. They're pretty laid back and lazy so don't cause any problems, but if you're allergic to cats then this place is probably not for you!

Getting around

My house is a 10-15 minute walk to Wimbledon Station, which has a frequent train service into central London taking only 15 minutes. It is also on the tube system via the District Line.

Other Things to Note

Towels, bed linen, dressing gowns and hair-dryer provided.

And finally, it may be possible to rent out my car (Ford Focus) during your stay. This would need to be booked separately via the easyCar Club website. Please let me know if you need further details.

  • Richard's place was within easy walking distance of the tube station and all other amenities of Wimbledon. The room was fantastic, the bed was very comfortable and we were made to feel very much at home.
    Richard was a very welcoming host and when we're back in the area we'll definitely stay again.
    Thanks Richard!

  • My wife and I stayed with Richard while some renovation work was being carried out on our own house. Richard was very welcoming and accommodating and the room was very spacious and comfortable. The house is modern and within a few minutes walk from the transport, shops and restaurants of Wimbledon. I would definitely recommend staying Richard.

  • Richard kindly let me in late after i'd finished work and was very hospitable and kind. The room was gorgeous, bed was great and although I went straight to bed and left early the next morning i felt very at home and welcome. Thanks Richard!

About
I'm a 44 year old part-time IT consultant, originally from Holland but have lived in the UK for most of my life. I've been in Wimbledon for about 20 years, so know the area pretty well. I'm pretty relaxed and like a chat, perhaps over a beer or a glass of wine!
