One bedroom has bunk beds. 2 bedrooms have double beds and th playroom has a sofa-bed. The house can sleep 9 people and is very child-friendly, with many toys, puzzles & family games etc. We also have bikes and various sports' equipment in the garage that you can use too.
We are very lucky to have such wonderful neighbours who would be happy to help you while you are here.

Who we are

  1. We are Giles & Frances - a Teacher and Tennis Coach. We have 3 children, Penny 10, Sam 8, and Charlie who is 4. Our children are well-behaved and treat houses with respect. We love being with our kids; cooking (a well-equipped kitchen is essential!), music, seeing new places and being outside in the fresh air. Being a teacher means that we have lots of holiday during the year but with 3 young children we need a good self-contained base. We love to be able to access things to do without having to use a car too much and we like to be spontaneous when possible. We don't always plan our holidays well in advance, so as long as it is school holiday time, we'd be up for something at short notice.

    We are honest, neat and careful people and we don't smoke. If we did a swap, you can rest assured that we will take care of your house as if it was our own. We are happy to swap for long weekends as well as longer periods during the school holidays.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

A wonderfully quiet and friendly neighbourhood yet close to every amenity you could think of. We love the area as we have the best of both worlds - the hustle and bustle of London or the fresh air of the river or Surrey hills. There is so much to do from our doorstep. At the end of our road we have a newsagents for fresh milk, croissants, bread and newspapers etc. Indian, Persian, Chinese and Italian restaurants. Buses to go to Surbiton train station (18 mins on train to Waterloo) or into Kingston town centre for theatre & serious shopping. 5-10 mins walk there is a petrol station; supermarkets/other shops; a Post Office; churches & cafes; a park with swings, fields & tennis courts etc;
15 mins by car takes you to swimming pools; cinema; restaurants; RHS Wisley (gardens); bowling; farms days out; The River Thames (boat trips/walks); Hampton Court; Chessington World of Adventures & Zoo; Richmond Park; Go-karting; Horse Races at Sandown Park, Epsom and Kempton Park.
30 mins - 1 hour (by car or public transport) for Central London for all the sights, theatres, art galleries, museums, places of interest plus Thorpe Park; Surrey Hills (for walking, mountain-biking, gliding); North Downs (for walking); National Trust properties & gardens AND LOADS MORE!
