|Further details outdoors|
The Guest Suite has the advantage of being on the ground floor and you can park your car very close to the front door. There is however a step up into the family room through the front door and another step up to the bedrooms from the family room. The garden, which is all on the flat with patio and grass, is accessible via the French doors in the family room.
Guests are welcome to use the back garden which can be accessed through French doors from the family room. There is a fountain and two fish ponds at the bottom of the garden. Garden chairs and tables are available. The ponds are possibly more than 18 inches deep in places and therefore it is recommended that small children are supervised in the garden at all times.
Changeover day and arrival times can be arranged when booking with the owner. Check out no later than 10 am would be appreciated in order that we have time to prepare the Guest Suite for the next arrivals.
The South East England region
The Guest Suite is well placed for driving to the south coast. The nearest beach is at Brighton which would take about an hour to drive. However other beaches on the south Kent coast and Hampshire are possible to visit by car, or train, in a day. Chartwell, Sir Winston Churchill's home, is about 30 mins drive away and Hever Castle, where Henry VIII famously courted Anne Boleyn, is approx 45 mins drive. Gatwick airport is about 30 mins drive and Heathrow Airport about an hour. London black taxis are waiting at the nearby station.
South East London
The Guest Suite at Sanderstead is surrounded by golf courses: Selsdon Park, Farleigh Common, Addington Court, Addington Palace, Purley Downs, Croham Hurst, Langley Park, Banstead Downs and Coulsdon Court are just a few miles away.
Sanderstead village is a 5 min walk away from The Guest Suite. Here you will find a bank and post office, a paper shop, baker, hairdresser and barber, restaurants and a Waitrose supermarket. All Saints' Church (1230 AD) is a short walk away, via Sanderstiead duck pond which is very pretty. The church has guided tours at certain times and is well worth a visit.
