Overview

About the property

2-bedroom apartments with lovely private gardens, free fast WiFi and parking

The Vine and The Lavenders are newly refurbished two-bedroom maisonettes each sleeping 4, situated just a two-minute walk from West Byfleet station where 3-4 trains per hour run to London taking 30 to 40 minutes. Both have cosy cottagey interiors with fireplaces although central heating is used to heat the properties. The flatscreen wall-mounted TVs have a multi-channel TV service. Fast Wi-Fi broadband is provided. One bedroom has a double bed, the other has twin 2'6' beds which can be made up as a Kingsize double if preferred. In The Lavenders 4 separate beds can be arranged. The good-sized separate kitchens come equipped with hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge-freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. There is a generous worktop area and the usual electric kettle and toaster, plenty of pots, pans, crockery, glasses and cutlery. The bathrooms have baths with shower over.

One of the best features are the charming private gardens which enjoy plenty of sun. A garden table and 4 chairs are available for alfresco dining and drinks.

These apartments are just a few minutes walk from the centre of West Byfleet. Situated between Woking and Weybridge, West Byfleet has a thriving village centre with numerous restaurants including Italian, Indian, Southern Indian, Japanese, Thai, Chinese and a renowned British fish and chip restaurant as well as a Costa Coffee lounge and other pavement cafes serving excellent coffee and cakes. The town has three banks, several hairdressers, beauty salon, dress shops, chemists and a Waitrose supermarket. Marks and Spencer and Tesco superstores are within a mile of the town centre. With its proximity to London (as close as 25 minutes away by fast trains and 40-50 minutes by trains that stop en route) West Byfleet is popular with commuters. The town is also ideally placed for reaching popular attractions of the South East. Brooklands Museum, Mercedes-Benz World and Painshill Park are virtually next door. Others such as Hampton Court, Lego Land, Thorpe Park, Chessington World of Adventures and the race courses of Kempton Park, Sandown and Ascot are just a short drive away. Wimbledon is just a few minutes away by train. West Byfleet is near to several attractive villages and towns in the South East such as Cobham, Esher, Clandon, Ripley, Chobham, Farnham, Farnborough, Bisley and Guildford.

Very comfortable apartment with lovely private garden

  • 5 of 5

If you want convenience, but choose to be away from the bustle of the city, this lovely apartment is for you. Just a minute's walk to the train station and so many very good restaurants and shops. After 10 days in the town of West Byfleet, we felt like part of the town. The shop owners and restaurant/pub staffs were so warm and welcoming. We enjoyed being on a very quiet neighborhood street, and even had off-street parking. Easy access to most anywhere by train and an easy drive to Heathrow and many countryside destinations. My sister and I visited Guildford, Windsor, the Cotswolds, and Highclere Castle (for you Downton Abbey fans). A couple of days in central London filled out our itinerary. The Station Pub, Super Fish, That's Amore, and Sir & Madame restaurants all scored big with us. The beds in the apartment were so comfy, we almost didn't want to leave. Olwen was extremely responsive to a minor issue or two that we encountered! If we were ever to return to this area again, we would not hesitate to stay at the Lavenders again.

Owner's Response: What absolutely lovely feedback. Its great to hear how this stay generated so much enjoyment. Downtown Abbey fans might like to note that one of the locations in the series is under a mile away from the apartment. The centuries old Byfleet Manor served as the home where Dame Maggie Smith's character lived. It is not open to the public any more but can be seen from the outside. As well as the restaurants mentioned, foodies might appreciate a top quality dining experience available in the London House restaurant within a few minutes walk of the apartment. Thank you again for leaving such an informative review. It is very much appreciated.

The property was very clean and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay.

  • 5 of 5

I had a really lovely stay at the Lavenders in west byfleet , 2 minute walk to West Byfleet train station, 30 minutes to Waterloo London.

A 10 minute drive takes you to the beautiful Wisley Gardens for a lovely day out, and if you have children you are very close to Chessington and Thorpe park.

Would definitely stay here again.

The lavenders is in a great location.
