Wimbledon Village is a lovely place to find a coffee,meal or drink in the evening with some attractive individual shops to browse;it makes a good contrast to the City.
Excellent transport to the City
Really pleasant walk 20mins or 200 bus 5mins to Wimbledon Tube and Overground (Taxis outside station)
15 mins direct to Waterloo,The South Bank
20 mins to S.Kensington,Notting Hill
10 minutes walk into the village with its bars,cafes and shops and further 15 mins walk to Wimbledon Tennis.
Wimbledon Common is 5 minutes away if you crave some nature!
There is a small shared walled garden where you can sit and have drinks in summer
Interaction with Guests
I try to be around as much as guests require me,but want you to feel at home with privacy.
I love being so close to Wimbledon Village,the vilWimbledon town and the Common.We are also near Richmond,its park and the river and its so easy to get into the city using the underground or train.Its 20 min walk to the tennis.
Its great for public transport.A good bus service down to the main station(overground and underground)..but its a nice walk downhill!
No smoking please and respect the other occupants of the apartments in the house(they are all lovely and friendly but avoid their parking places!)I would prefer you to remove your shoes and can provide slippers.
Please try to wipe the kitchen worktops after use as the will stain if wet marks are left...(dark timber!)
Va tenir un tracte molt afable i acollidor amb nosaltres.
L'anunci es corresponia a la realitat.
Vam estar confortablement i acuradament acollits els 3 dies.
El barri és molt tranquil i la casa té espai d'aparcament.
The experience has been amazing. Val was waiting for us when we arrived and then showed us our bedroom and the different rooms around the house. She also helped us with our breakfast the first day and gave us pieces of advice on where to go in London and how to move around the city and on our way back home. Val was always very kind and willing to know how our experience went. The place is very quiet and permitted us to rest with no problem after every journey. We would like to thank Val for her amazing hospitality and such friendly behaviour.
We personally recommend anyone to book a room at Val´s house.
We were made to feel very welcome from the start. Val provided a continental breakfast for us and we were able to use her Kitchen to warm our evening meals.
Her home is within 2oo meters of a bus stop in either direction and most convenient to get to Wimbledon. We never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a bus.
The room was exactly what we required. A comfortable bed with plenty of cupboard space and en suite bathroom. We were very comfortable thank you. Hopefully we will be back in the not too distant future.
We had a lovey time staying with Val. It was the perfect location for our trip and the room was bright and comfortable. The drench shower was brilliant too! We've already recommended it to our friends who visit Wimbledon. Thanks Val!
Followed Vals instructions and got there in good time - easy to find. Had a cup of tea and a chat and shown around - stunning place to stay and a chatty host. Very comfortable bed to come home to after a long, hot and tiring day. Easy to walk to Wimbledon (we had tickets for the mens final) and plenty of places to eat in the village on the way home. Could not have wished for a better place to stay and a fabulous host - this was our first time with airbnb and we were a little apprehensive - but it was the best experience and we would recommend to anyone.
Val's flat is gorgeous, immaculately presented and is a short walk from Wimbledon Village. Val herself is very warm and hospitable. I would thoroughly recommend staying with her.
Val made us very welcome, friendly and hospitable. The room and ensuite facilities were as described. The freedom to come and go as we pleased was much appreciated. Flexibility for check-in and check-out was an added plus.

About the Host, Val
I'm a freelance artist/designer working on commissions, along with my own personal work.I love living close to London and all it offers but also value living in the village and having a bit of 'countryside' within walking distance..the best of both worlds! When I m travelling freshly laundered sheets,nice towels are a must,some ambiance and comfort appreciated so I aim to make your stay really comfortable.I can prepare a continental breakfast if you wish (teas,coffee,croissants or bagels,muesili,juice..let me know if you have preferences..)
Of course I'll be happy to give you suggestions to help you enjoy your visit or you can just use my place as a base to make your own discoveries.
