The Space

Please complete your profile and verify your ID if you wish to book this listing. Thanks

Clean, neat room, with self-catering if required (kitchen) 15 minutes walk from Wimbledon and 25 mins from Zone 1 (Waterloo Train station) by train.

The room is somewhat larger than the photo shows. It has a very large wardrobe, a desk and a good sized comfortable double bed.

Guests share kitchen and bathroom with either 1, or sometimes.. 2 other people, which includes myself. Though it's not so busy as most guests are out most of the time.

The flat is well located for Wimbledon All Lawn Tennis Club.

An additional guest is fine for £20 extra per night.

I will only accept single night bookings at a higher rate of £45 for one person or £65 for two people.

Wireless broadband is included.

Free parking can be found on street a couple of minutes walk away.

The flat is located 1-2 minutes away from a Tesco supermarket, a 24hr M&S supermarket and a co-op supermarket. Waitrose and other supermarkets and shops are a 10 minute walk from the flat, or 2 minutes by bus.

There are also a selection of good restaurants and take aways in the local, and wider area depending on your tastes.

The flat is 15 mins walk away from Wimbledon town centre (District Line) or, alternatively, 2 minutes away by train.

Buses to the Northern line (Morden or South Wimbledon) leave every 10 mins and take around 5 minutes to arrive.

Neighbourhood is generally very quiet.

Clothes washing facilities are NOT available but there is a launderette about 8 minutes walk from here.

Guest Access

Kitchen with cooking facilities, hot water, wi-fi, shower/ bathroom.

Interaction with Guests

Just a little, or a bit more if wanted.

The Neighborhood

I know most of the good places to eat. It's convenient for almost anything you should need or want. That's London!

The public transport is excellent once understood!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • James was a good relaxed host and the room clean and comfortable. The Flat is first floor on a quiet cul-de-sac, a 5-10 minute cycle ride from Wimbledon centre.
    James was kind enough to let me store my bike in the hallway.

  • James was a great host and very helpful when it came to pointing me in the right direction in and around the local area.

    The room and flat surpassed my expectation and met my every need. Plenty of storage space, cooking facilities and a really good shower. Would recommend to anyone whether visiting London on business or for pleasure.

  • Had a wonderful time in Wimbledon staying at this house. It almost felt like home away from home! It was also right next to the Wimbledon chase station, which I ended up using very frequently.
    This place was as advertised, and I would recommend anyone visiting the Wimbledon are to consider staying here.
