Small comfortable house in a quiet cul de sac in a pleasant satellite town 25 miles from London and 15 miles from Heathrow Airport (Terminal 5).
The house is 12 minute walk from the Woking mainline station with 13 trains an hour (at peak times) to Waterloo Central London (journey time 25 minutes)
PLEASE NOTE HOWEVER: - Woking is a quiet suburban town. If you want to stay in the brights lights of London then this accommodation is probably not for you. Please review the map to see exactly where my house is and its proximity to London.
Also Woking is 45 minutes from Heathrow Airport by coach or I also can meet you at the airport and drive you to my house (dependent on flight arrival time). You just pay for petrol/gasoline (approximately £5-£10 depending on time) instead of a £60 taxi fare into central London. So if you are likely to be jet lagged then one night here before heading off to stay in london may be a good idea
I have two bedrooms that guests can use. If you are a couple then you may use the larger bedroom (Kingsize bed, stripey duvet in the pictures). When I have no guests this is my bedroom and therefore does contain my "stuff" however some draws and the partial use of the wardrobe will be free for you to stay during your stay. If you are a single traveller you will be given the smaller bedroom (spotty duvet cover in the pictures) which contains a double sofa bed and storage units. You will be welcome however to use all facilities of the house.
I am the perfect host because due to work and other commitments I am often away! So you may very well have the house to yourself.
I may have other guests however particularly Tuesday and Wednesday so these evenings may be busier.
Help yourself to bread, cereals, tea, coffee, etc
There is a large supermarket 5 minute walk away for all your other needs.
Due to its price (the cost reflects that this is not a business, the house is a standard built British "starter" terraceand by no means could be called "spotless", and I do this because I really do enjoy assisting visitors to the UK, London and Surrey), its peaceful location (being at the end of a long cul-de-sac there is no traffic noise, being close to a railway line however you do get train noise although not at night), and (I hope) the relaxing ambience, this is an ideal first (or last) night accommodation from which you can then go and explore London or the countryside of the South East of England. You are very welcome or course to stay as long as you want (and you only pay for nights you stay). If you need any help and advice on what to see or where to stay I would be happy to advise.
Thank you for reading. I hope to hear from you soon.
All facilities in the house are yours to use as you wish. You certainly do not have to stay in your room although of course if you prefer this then that is absolutely fine too.
Interaction with Guests
When I am home (I am often away at weekends and work late a number of evenings in the week) I am always available.if you have any questions or queries or just want to chat. If I can assist with your transportation anywhere I would be glad to help
Long quiet cul-de-sac with mainly "starter" homes, so lots of couples and young families. Lots of free parking if you drive. Very safe and very convenient for the Supermarket (Morrisons is a 5 minute walk away) and Woking Town Centre (about 10-12 minutes away). There is a bus to Guildford very nearby aswell
There is a bus to Guildford very nearby. It's a 12-15 minute walk to Woking Station with trains to London every 5 - 10 minutes or so. Woking is also close to the motoway network so it is relatively quick to drive to the South East countryside and landmarks e.g. Brighton, Stonehenge, New Forest etc.
The only house rule is no smoking in the house. There is a garden which you are very welcome to use if you are a smoker.
Alun was wonderful host... he helped me very much and was very kind:) Thanks to him, i reach liverpool comfortably!
I enjoyed my stay with Alun. He was kind and welcoming and helped me a lot with directions. He was really happy for me to use his kitchen and offered me juice, tea etc. The bed was very comfortable and I had everything I needed. I would definitely stay again. And I had a lovely walk along just footpaths and canal tow path to get to work at the WWF UK Living Planet Centre, just took 10 - 15mins. Thanks Alun!
Alun was a lovely, friendly and easy going host, he accommodated us arriving early and made us feel very welcome. He have us great directions for finding everything we needed on woking and even drew is a map. Would recommend as a great value bnb
Alun is fantastic host, I felt very comfortable in his house, he was very helpful and friendly if I had any questions. The town/station is just walking distant and Morrison is 3 minute walk.
Many Thanks !
Alun was a really great host, we felt comfortable and very welcome in his house, Alun was very helpful friendly and always free when we had some question or just to have a chat.
Thanks a lot to welcome us :)
Alun was a great host and the place as described. The room and bed was comfortable even though fronting the rail track , the noise is bearable and I had a good sleep. The town just walking distant, also the Morrison supermarker and train station.
Tall, handsome, talented and entertaining. But enough about George Clooney. What about me? Well I share one of George's attributes (I am tall). I would say I am laid back, easy going helpful and friendly. And I would hope that is what my family and friends would say too.
I love meeting new people, especially from abroad, and hearing about their experiences and adventures.
However if you want privacy, you've got it. Also if you want help with travel or tips on things to do, I'm your man.
I would hope to make you stay as comfortable and stress free as possible.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
