Overview

About the property

Serviced/self-catering apartment own entrance, sleeps 4. Accepts card payments

Located within easy reach of London and close to Cobham, Chertsey, Weybridge, Esher, Walton-on-Thames, Woking and Guildford. This is the ideal base for anyone visiting South East England. The apartment is in West Byfleet, a village that boasts around 19 restaurants including French, Italian, Japanese, Vietnamese, Indian and Chinese. Within a mile of Brooklands Motor Museum, Mercedes Benz World and Painshill Park, it is also just a short drive from other major tourist attractions such as Hampton Court Palace, the RHS Wisley Gardens, Wimbledon, Sandown Race Course, Chessington World of Adventures, Thorpe Park, Windsor Castle and Lego Land.

• The apartment is centrally heated, clean modern and has a unique feel quite unlike the 'corporate blandola' nature of many self-catering apartments. Downstairs an open-plan living space has a well-equipped contemporary kitchen, dining and sitting areas with french doors leading on to a sunny decked patio with exterior dining furniture and table tennis. The apartment is well equipped with washer-drier, full-size washing machine, oven, grill, ceramic hob, large fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster. Plenty of pots, pans and cutlery are supplied.

• Upstairs are two bedrooms sleeping four people in ultra-comfortable beds (one double and twin beds that can be joined to make a king-size double) and one bathroom with power shower. A travel cot or child bed are available on request to accommodate a fifth person. We are unable to accommodate 5 adults.

The apartment has its own front door and charming flower-filled front and rear courtyard gardens. It offers off-road parking for two cars. The owner accepts payment by debit or credit card.

Beautiful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment over the Easter holidays. The accommodation was beautifully presented, clean and spacious for all four of us.

It was lovely to come back from a tiring day out at the local theme parks: Legoland, Thorpe Park and Chessington, which are all less then 30 minutes away, to an amazing base camp.

We also went to Central London by train, which was also an easy journey.

Thank you for your welcome and kind assistance Ian and Olwen.

Lovely apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Evancourt for 2 weeks whilst we were moving house, with two young children. On the edge of West Byfleet, it's a very handy location from which you can get around very easily. The station is a very short drive away, as is the local Waitrose store and other amenities within the area. The apartment is really nice and practically fitted, with a good range of equipment for cooking, cleaning etc. The location is lovely, close to a canal and withing the grounds of the owners' house. The rooms are spacious with high ceilings and the wall of books is a luxury that we were not able to fully enjoy. Cable TV and internet made the stay work very well. Our hosts were very helpful and responsive but we were left to enjoy the property. We'd certainly come back and use Evancourt again.

A large, well-equipped two-bedroom apartment near the River Wey

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week in the apartment at Evancourt in West Byfleet. The apartment is spacious, comfortable and attractive, and equipped with everything one could possibly want for an extended stay. It was also spotlessly clean. Upstairs there are two good-sized bedrooms and a beautiful, modern bathroom with shower. Downstairs, there is an excellent, fully equipped kitchen and a lounge with an extensive library and satellite TV. French doors lead onto a pretty deck where one can sit and read or eat, and beyond that is a ping-pong table which should provide fun for the younger set.

A five minute walk from the house is the River Wey which connects with the Basingstoke canal. Walking along the towpath, watching the ducks, swans and herons, and the narrow boats puttering by, was idyllic, even when it rained! In the village of West Byfleet , a five-minute drive away, there are shops, a Waitrose supermarket, and a railway station from which one can take a fast train into London. It could hardly be more convenient. In the opposite direction is Brooklands, the site of the world’s first dedicated motor-racing circuit and now home to a fine automobile and aeronautical museum. And beyond that, within easy driving distance, lies the beautiful countryside of the Surrey Hills and the Devil’s Punchbowl.

Most important, the owners, Olwen and Ian, were extraordinarily welcoming, kind and helpful. They made our stay as easy and enjoyable as it could be and we feel lucky to have found Evancourt. To summarize, we highly recommend Evancourt, whether it be for a short stay or a long one

The property was beautifully landscaped with lovely gardens. Very private.

  • 5 of 5

The home was top notch. Everything was nice from the kitchen to the bathroom to both bedrooms! We enjoyed relaxing at the end of the day in the living room reading. :) Ian was so helpful as well. If we return to England we would love to stay here again. Loved it!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our 1 - week - stay very much !

Location perfect to discover London ( for runaways like us ). Just half an hour drive by rental car from district line station Wimbledon . (Off peak times recommended)

The next huge superstore ( Tesco extra ) is just a ten minutes ride away)

The house is so perfectly fully equipped with love for details -we missed nothing ! Amazing library and beautiful terrace to have a " bubbly" in the evening sun. Very kind conversation in advance and a warm welcome from the hosts .

Would really like to come back!

Thank you Olwen and Ian !!!!!!

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment. Location is a quite neighbourhood and Olwen was lovely. The apartment has everything you would need and the shower is powerful which I find is a disappointment in a lot of accommodations. The smoke alarm was beeping because of the battery was dying and it was changed straight away. I would really recommend this apartment.

Surrey in the South East of England is a largely affluent well-sought after area by visitors and UK residents alike because of its proximity to London and communication links from Heathrow and Gatwick airports. It has many historic and cultural attractions. Apart from those in London, there are theatres in Guildford and Woking, many good restaurants and places of interest such as historic palaces, wonderful gardens, traditional pubs, race-courses and children's theme parks. The world's first motor racing circuit was built within a mile of Evancourt at Brooklands. Part of the old track is preserved and there is an excellent motor and aviation museum on the site. Also at Brooklands, and of interest for self-caterers, are large Tesco and M&S foodstores.

Evancourt backs on to the Basingstoke Canal which was built in 1794 to connect Basingstoke in Hampshire with the River Thames at Weybridge via the Wey Navigation. Its eastern end is at Byfleet, where it connects to the Wey Navigation leading to the River Thames. It offers a pleasant and diverting walk with narrow boats passing by and plenty of wildlife. There are also rowing boats and canoes for hire.

West Byfleet is a thriving village with many restaurants offering cuisines from several different countries as well as a first class British fish and chip establishment. It also has a very good Waitrose supermarket. The village has several hairdressers, two dry-cleaners, a pharmacy, jewellers, stationers, butcher, Japanese sushi deli, and other shops including a Chocalatier and a quirky fashion shop. A recent popular development has been the arrival of an upmarket Costa coffee lounge where people enjoy meeting and sitting in comfortable chairs, inside or out, whilst taking coffee and pastries.

The area has many nearby golf courses and is close to excellent shopping opportunities in nearby Weybridge, Woking and Guildford.
