Why Cindy chose Elmbridge

Hi we have owned this property for many years, having renovated it with underfloor heating throughout. It is a unique quirky property that will yield terrific stories for your family for years. It will be an especially wonderful treat for any child who loves Thomas or Chuggington or is a fan of trains and in fact, we have a wooden train set available for them to play with!

What makes this house unique

We have hosted families where one parent is working in or near London along the railway route and the other who wants to settle nearby, visit family or enjoy the local daytrips without being crammed into a small London-City based hotel. You can have your cake and eat it too because we are just a short journey to London- 15min to Wimbledon where there are tons of restaurants, theatres/cinemas, and shopping and you don't need a car to get there. We are also a short journey to historic Guildford where fans of Alice & Wonderland will be greeted by statues. There are nighttime Ghost tours, a ruin/garden, boat rides at the museum, cute cobblestone streets, theatre and of course an indoor waterpark- again you don't need a car to get there. Chelsea football training grounds are just down the road, so football fans may spot players around. The house is semiattached to the station which means no noisy residential neighbors around. The station is a cute rural station which closes at 12 and is mainly quiet- Trains stop so you will hardly notice them.
