The Space

Bright, airy, private loft with en –suite bathroom in leafy Wimbledon. The loft comprises the top floor of our house. You will enjoy a comfortable king size bed in the tranquility and privacy of your own space. Your spacious room is equipped with a digital colour TV, tea and coffee making facilities, Miller Harris toiletries, international adapters and a hair dryer. You have your own set of keys to come and go as you wish. Linen and fluffy towels are of course included.
I provide a buffet style self service breakfast including muesli, bagels/bread with jams. juice plus a selection of teas and fresh coffee. You are welcome to use the kitchen for simple food preparation with advance notice, the washing machine/ dryer/ iron and living room (equipped with wifi, TV, DVD player) during your stay.
Central London is easily accessible either by underground train (five minutes walk to the station) or by mainline train (Wimbledon to Waterloo takes 17 minutes).
I live on the premises and have lived in London for 15 years so I can help you with planning your visit and getting the most out of London and the local area. I am also a fluent french speaker.
Wimbledon is a safe and leafy area with excellent links to central London and lots to enjoy on your doorstep. There is a variety of restaurants, coffee shops, cinemas, theatres and supermarkets within walking distance and if you want to stretch your legs and escape, Wimbledon Common is easily accessible.
Wimbledon Station is a comfortable 12 minute walk and South Wimbledon underground station is a 5 minute walk around the corner.
Check in is after 2pm and check out around midday the following day but if you let me know your requirements I will be as flexible as I can.
We seek to maintain a clean and pleasant environment in our home and therefore have a no-shoes policy, plus the house is smoke and pet -free.
I share the house with my husband and our very friendly little girl, but we will not disturb you during your visit if you want to be left in peace! We can however give you lots of advice on places to go, things to do and see to help you enjoy your visit to the full.

  • Very lovely stay. The room was clean and airy. Sarah was very helpful in advising on the city. I would certainly recommend this experience.

  • Lovely place to stay in leafy Wimbledon.
    Only a quick one night visit for business purposes but Sarah was a warm and welcoming host and the room is lovely and very comfortable. Nice attention to details with water, tea, coffee etc. available and ensuite bathroom with toiletries provided. Close to good transport links.

  • Sarah and her husband were fantastic hosts, very friendly and helpful. The place is exactly as it looks in the picture, a comfortable room that is very quiet. I enjoyed the stay and it is on the top of my list to search for again, when I return to London. For tennis fans, Wimbledon is a must visit.

  • Sarah and John were lovely hosts, so accommodating and friendly! The room is at the top of their home and it is airy, bright and beautiful with a heavenly bed. I would recommend staying with Sarah to anyone, and hope to stay again when I return to the UK.

  • What a lovely homing we have got by Sarah! Such a marvelous place!
    It is not far from two tube stations – Wimbledon and South Wimbledon, just 7 min. But it was surprised us – but it was very quiet and (we live in a German village) very good air!
    Lovely light room with separate bath – another surprise! And everything beautifully decorated.
    Sarah gave us feeling we are at home by the best our friends. My husband has never been in England before and he was really fascinated – and thanks Sarah lovely housing too. I would thank Sarah for all her warmth and cordiality. And wish her all the best!

  • This is my second time staying with Sarah and Jonathan. They are very friendly and pleasant hosts and they are always willing to help out with suggestions to make your stay very enjoyable. The room is lovely – large, bright, clean, nice and quiet, comfy bed and good wifi connectivity. Therefore, I would definitely recommend staying with Sarah and Jonathan.

  • Sarah and her sweet family are excellent hosts! She was easy to communicate with about when I would be arriving, and flexible about that timing. Her daughter is delightfully cute and her husband was very helpful (carrying my heavy bag up the stairs for me -- bonus! -- and helping me navigate the 2 tube stations nearby via his laptop).

    She provided a wonderful little breakfast every morning and lots of advice about how to see tennis (I was there during the Wimbeldon championships).

    The room itself is FANTASTIC! Clean, bright, airy, quite large, really. Very nice to have a bathroom with a shower right there and not have to share it, I must say. Comfortable bed to crash in after a long day and veg out to some British TV on the flatscreen provided in the room.

    I don't think the Murphys will be renting for a while, as baby #2 is due soon, but when this room comes back on the market, rent it! :)

  • We had a wonderful week-long stay with Sarah and family. They were very friendly and accomdating: offering maps, excursion, and transportation tips. Plus access to the kitchen and laundry. Did we mention a breakfast with very nice toast, marmalade, and museli each morning?

    Just a short walking distance from both Wimbledon and South Wimbledon tube stops, Sarah's place is convenient for both Wimbledon and London visitors.

    Stay with Sarah!

  • Sarah is a great host and it is a lovely place to stay. The room is bright and airy, very clean and there is a very comfy bed. It is like home away from home!

  • The room was even better than what you could guess from the pics, which are already really nice: very comfortable, bright and cozy with the en-suite bathroom and a large and comfy bed.
    I had a great week and it actually felt more like a vacation than a working week.
    Sarah, Jonathan and Florence are just lovely. Welcoming, always smiling and dedicated to make you feel like home.
    Would definitely recommend.
