Location description from owner

The 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.

West Byfleet

The apartments are just a two-minute walk from West Byfleet station where trains to London run frequently taking 25 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.

“Excellent - as usual”

Reviewed 5 Nov 2015

A great stay at the Vine (as usual). A lovely, quiet but convenient location, with excellent transport links. Beautifully presented, and well-equipped. We will be back again!

“Perfect location”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2015

We stayed at the Vine for a week with two 7 year olds to visit the theme parks (Legoland, Thorpe Park and Chessington) and have a day in London. We could not have asked for a better location. Half an hour drive at the most and a 40 minute direct train into Waterloo from a 2 minute walk. A good variety of local amenities including a Harvester in a short walking distance.. The property itself was great with a lot of home comforts. We had a particularly rainy week so the dryer was a god send! For a week in August, the property offered great value for money. I would definitely look to book again.

“Perfect Location for a London Holiday”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2015

This perfect little two bedroom main floor flat is within a 5 minute walk to the train that goes to London. There are a ton of restaurants, shops and groceries stores within a 5 minute walk. We loved staying here and got lucky with the location. I would and will stay here again on our next trip to London.

“Excellent property - very clean!”

Reviewed 31 May 2015

The property was fantastic - great location with shops and other amenities nearby. Also, the property had a great layout with good size bedrooms and kitchen. We were particularly impressed with the cleanliness of the property. I would fully recommend - thanks!

“Perfect place for trips into London and day trips around South England”

Reviewed 17 Dec 2014

The Vines Cottage is the perfect place for someone wanting to visit London, do day trips to places like Stonehenge, Portsmouth and Dover, and still experience small town England. The Vines is literally just around the corner from the West Byfleet Train Station and travel to London is a relatively short, inexpensive trip direct to the Waterloo Station, which is just across the river from Westminster and a hub for the tubes anywhere. West Byfleet is very friendly with lots of restaurants, including a number that have actual English food - not pizza, Indian or Chinese. There is also a large grocery within easy walking distance. The town's location provides easy access to multiple motorways for day trips to Dover, Stonehenge/Avebury, and Portsmouth to see HMS Victory, Warrior and the Mary Rose. But the best thing about the Vines Cottage is Olwen, the owner. She helped us overcome a number of problems in getting there and could not have been more friendly. The beds at the Vines are comfortable, it is quiet, the kitchen is perfect and it's a great location. I wholeheartedly recommend the Vines Cottage to anyone traveling to England from the US, Canada or Australia and wanting to experience the real England and still have easy access to all the tourist sites in Southern England and London.

“A great place to stay for a family of 4!”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2014

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”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2014

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.

“Thought of all the small details to make stay comfortable”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2013

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 .

“Excellent Family Accomodation”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2012

Myself, my wife, my daughter and her husband stayed at the Vine over 3 periods in September and October 2012. The Vine is a freshly decorated and very well-equipped 2 bedroom apartment very close to both the West Byfleet station and to a Waitrose supermarket. The Vine has everthing you need, the proverbial "home away from home". It is within very easy and frequent reach of Waterloo station in London. Our host, Mrs Olwen Mason, couldn't have been more helpful and considerate, and gave us all sorts of sensible advice.

“Convenient and clean”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2012

Accommodation was modern, clean, well-equipped and incredibly convenient for nearby amenities and station for access to London.
