The South East England region
Surrey is an attractive, affluent part of England with some beautiful countryside despite being very close to London. The area has been a major hub of London since medieval times with Henry VIII and the Black Prince Edward having their main residences here. There are several past royal residences and other stately homes in the area including Claremont, Clandon, Polesdon Lacy as well as Hampton Court Palace and the remains of Woking Palace.
The world's first motor-racing circuit was built in Byfleet at Brooklands where parts of the original track can be seen and where the Brooklands motor and aircraft museum is located.
The apartment is just a two-minute walk from West Byfleet station where trains to London run frequently taking 30 to 40 minutes to reach London Waterloo. The maisonette is in a pretty tree-line road close to Woodham Lock on the Basingstoke Canal and the small village green with pub in front of the station. It is only a few minutes walk from the shops, restaurants and facilities of West Byfleet. The village has a thriving centre with restaurants of many nationalities, a Costa coffee lounge, pavement cafes, Waitrose supermarket and numerous shops, banks and pub. Towns close to West Byfleet, include Woking, Weybridge, Cobham, and Guildford. Nearby attractions include Brooklands Museum on the site of the world's first motor racing circuit, Mercedes-Benz World, Painshill Park, Claremont Landscape Gardens and the RHS gardens at Wisley. West Byfleet is within a few miles of popular tourist attractions including Hampton Court Palace, Windsor Castle, Lego Land, Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures. Wimbledon is a few minutes away by train or car.

"A great place to stay for a family of 4!"
Coming from Switzerland, we were looking for a qualitative place at best price. The Vine is a practical and great place to stay. The pics is really representative of the atmosphere of the place. We were 2 adults and 2 childrens (7-9). We really liked the room space, the facilities (wifi, kitchen, washing machin, car parc) and the terrace. The area is calm by day and night. The train station is in 2 minutes walk and the southwest train takes 30/40 minutes to London Waterloo (the perdect time to chill with your children and talk about London history with them). Olwen is a really nice person and we are thankful for her kindness.

"Great little place, homely and near the station"
Stayed for 3 nights with one young child. The set up of the flat is great for a family being away from home. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything you will need. The TV and wifi are great too. The offstreet parking is a god send as parking was a little crazy on the surrounding roads.The flat is perfectly positioned for West Byfleet station and is only a short walk from the shops, including Waitrose. We used it as a base whilst rennovation work was being done on our house but would also be a great location for exploring both London and Surrey.

I'm sorry you had trouble with the Wi-Fi. Unfortunately someone had disconnected the router from the mains. I dont know why. We now check that it is properly plugged in when we prepare the flat for our next guests.

"Thought of all the small details to make stay comfortable"
This cottage is in a perfect location for walking to station and shops. Tastefully decorated and a kitchen that has everything you could possibly need to cook. So much attention to detail makes for a really comfortable stay. Lovely patio for the summer. Olwen was there to meet me and show me where everything was. One of the best rentals I've stayed in. Highly recommended .
