The Surrey region
London needs no introduction as it is one of the most famous cities in the world. It offers a cosmopolitan mecca for shopping, nightlife, theater, historical sites and museums.
The south of England offers some of the oldest history on the planet with its world heritage site Stonehenge only ninety minutes drive from the cottage. The historical port town Portsmouth is an hour away and the popular vibrant coastal town Brighton, not much further.
Kingston upon Thames
The ancient Market town of Kingston-Upon-Thames has held an important place in history for many centuries, its position just a few miles from England's capital has played an intrinsic part in its growth and survival throughout the ages.
From the earliest times of a small settlement where the Bronze Age farmers toiled the land it has been destined for great things. When the invading Romans landed they brought with them a wealth of knowledge and expertise which changed history. The Anglo Saxons first recorded Kingston in a charter that dates back to 838, becoming an important location, so much so that it developed into the coronation site for seven Saxon Monarchs starting with Alfred The Great 's son Edward the Elder . This was followed by six further coronations ending with Ethelred the Unready in the 10th Century. A legacy of this important site remains today with The Coronation Stone placed outside of the Guildhall, which is said to have been used by all of the monarchs. Visitors to the town can still see the stone, which contains one coin from each reign of the monarch's concerned whose ceremonies were presided over by the Archbishop of Canterbury, or the Archbishop of York through the 10th and 11th Centuries. Kingston's role of being the location for the coronation of Saxon Kings was to finally end, when William the Conqueror was crowned in Westminster Abbey this was the beginning of a trend which continues today.

"Lovely little house in good, quiet location"
Stayed here with our two young children (4 and 1 year old) for a week in March. We picked one of the coldest weeks on record to go and it took a few hours for the house to warm up so the first night we were cold but after that it was fine, and lovely and warm upstairs.
We found the stairs the only real negative- they are incredibly steep with narrow steps which our 4 year old found tricky and we hated when carrying our wriggly baby. The stairgate was welcome but another 2 would have been handy with a busy crawler around!! There are also a couple of steps down into the tiled kitchen which our youngest found fascinating but meant we were on tenterhooks that he would tumble as there is no way to block them off.
We welcomed the provision of a travel cot but had to search for it on arrival and then set it all up which was a pain as we arrived late after a long journey.
Overall we enjoyed our stay, we didnt get to use the garden as were out a lot and it was too cold! I imagine it would be a welcome space to sit out on a nice evening though. We enjoyed Kingston and several trips into central London, no problem with a good choice of buses and trains on the doorstep.
The house is nicely decorated and well equipped however I wouldnt recommend for people with a young family/disability because of the stairs/steps.
Oh and the italian deli at the bottom of the road has great coffee and mouthwatering food!
