The immediate Attractions
Whether you are in London for the theatre, sightseeing, museums, visiting friend or a reunion, this superb flat by Wimbledon Village is what you need.
The great open spaces of Wimbledon Common are reached in a 5 minute walk. Ideal for walking, cycling and jogging. After your exercise come to enjoy a typical English pub lunch at one of the three excellent pubs in the neighbourhood
But if you wish to go to the cinema or the theatre, Wimbledon is not short of these attractions. All the main Cinema chains have their houses in Wimbledon. As to Wimbledon Theatre has a glittering reputation as a premier theatrical venue in South West London. The Grade II listed building consists of a beautiful Edwardian auditorium decorated in both Georgian and Italian renaissance styles across three levels of seating. The venue continues to play host to numerous touring productions of musicals, ballets, operas and plays, as well as an annual pantomime each Christmas.
Finding this flat in Wimbledon made our stay in the UK very special and it is excellent value for the money. We were so pleased to find it comfortable in every way, good sized bedrooms with comfy beds and pillows, and in the very pleasant living room, furniture to relax on after a busy day in London. The flat is very nicely decorated, very clean and feels like a home away from home. What more would you want! Everything we needed as a family of four was available to us and we especially enjoyed the availability of WiFi. The kitchen is not large but it is very well organized and equipped.
We found the train system to London was fast and efficient and we always used the bus to get into the main part of Wimbledon. The bus stop is practically across the road from the flat so that was never a problem and the bus runs every twenty minutes. You can ride the same bus to get to the village or to the main area of Wimbledon. We did not realize that we could not pay to get on the bus, you need a card, so on our first day we did walk into town. It is not that far but you would not want to be carrying groceries because it is a slight hill from the main part of town to the flat. However, the village of Wimbledon is only a ten minute easy walking distance with pubs, cafés, restaurants and shops to browse in which we thoroughly enjoyed.
We bought an Oyster card for the week from a store next to the station and we used it for the buses, tube trains and some of the rail trips since we spent most of our time in London. It is much more economical to do it this way.
In the flat you will find a comprehensive list of instructions for the appliances and other information which is very useful. From the very beginning of our contact with the owners we found them to be extremely helpful in every way which we really appreciated. It could not have been a nicer stay and we highly recommend the flat for the convenience to London, exploring and enjoying the attractive town of Wimbledon and the outlying areas. We would happily return. We would rate this property 5 out of 5
Once again we chose this wonderful apartment/home for our annual summer vacation back home in the UK. It continues to offer us the perfect base to catch up with friends and family but also offers us the opportunity to explore London and the surrounding areas. Great shopping in places like Richmond and Kingston and wonderful cafes and restaurants in the Village itself. Great walks close by on the common or just a short hop to the beautiful Richmond Park. All in all it is perfect for us in every sense location wise but also the accommodation itself. Large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen make it a home from home. Add to that the wonderful owners who make the booking process so pain free. Hopefully they will have us back again next summer....
This was our second stay at this lovely Wimbledon property and I can say we were just as pleased as we were the first time. The flat was clean and provided everything we needed and more. When we had questions the owners responded to our emails promptly and courteously. Unlike the first time, we didn't get a rental car this time but with the excellent bus service, tube and Uber we didn't miss the car at all and saved a lot of money. We will definitely stay here again!
We spent a week in London over Easter and this place was the perfect base for our trips into the city. The tennis courts are about a 15 minute walk. The bus stop across the street takes you to the centre of Wimbledon from where it takes about 15 minutes by train to reach Waterloo Station in the centre of London. Shopping and nice pubs and restaurants are two bus stops away so there is no need to lug food and drinks through half of the town. Parking was around the corner and we left our car there for the week. Public transportation is way easier and relaxed than driving on the wrong side of the street ;-)
The apartment is spacious and the perfect size for five people. Everything is clean and the apartment provides everything you need. The small but well equipped kitchen has everything necessary so we didn’t have to eat out every day. We really felt at home here.
Communication with the owner was more than extraordinary. From the first booking request to the returning of the keys. Coco has been helpful with everything we wanted to know and we never needed to wait for an answer very long. Everything that needed to be organzied was done right away. Thanks a lot for this perfect support. It made our visit even more pleasant.
We can definitely recommend this apartment.

Clean, tidy and very like the photos, this property suited our family of four perfectly as a Wimbledon base in late summer. We loved it. Ground floor location means no stairs to lug bags up. Bedrooms of decent size and two well appointed bathrooms. The kitchen is small but has everything we needed to prepare our own meals and therefore meant we didn't have to eat out every day (although plenty of good options within 5-10 minutes walk). Parking is on-street using coupons helpfully obtained on our behalf by the owners (although there are off-street parks for temporary visitors to you) and we found it OK although some days the nearby parts of the street were full up. There is a bus stop nearby on a route leading to/from Wimbledon station from which you can quickly and reliably get into central London.
Owners were excellent at communicating with us and responding to questions.
Would definitely recommend to family and would return ourselves.
We enjoyed our stay immensely. The flat is big and very clean. It is next to a bus stop which allows you to reach the center of Wimbledon in a few minutes. We can really recommend the flat.
This was our 2nd stay at this property which once again delivered everything that we had hoped for and i guess expected since we had been there before in the summer of 2013.. Its the perfect location for both kids and adults (we are a family of 5). Wimbledon Village delivers everything we need. So many activities for kids within easy reach and plenty of bars/restaurants and great pubs for the adults. Throw in Richmond Park and Wimbledon Common for great walks/runs and you pretty much have the perfect package. Also as expats on our annual summer vacation back to the UK we make plenty of use of the great shopping available both locally and of course in central London which is little more than 15 mins away.
As for the property. It really delivers exactly what is promised. It is fantastic value for money, beautifully presented and a great location. It's really impossible to think of anything negative to say whatsoever.
As for the booking process well that continues to be first class. The owners make the process very simple and pain free and that's just another one of the many reasons why I am certain we will be making a 3rd visit next summer.
We cannot recommend this property enough. Simply a perfect 'home from home'.
Paul Martin and Family (Singapore)
Welcome to Wimbledon Village where city meets country.
The Village has a rural feel sited on the edge Wimbledon Common; the blend of chic shops, cafes and bars set amongst handsome period buildings and open spaces make Wimbledon Village unique in London. There are riding stables nearby which add to the country flavour.
If you need pampering, retail therapy at independently run boutiques, or all things culinary you will not be disappointed. You can relax in beauty shops and salons. If you are interested in Shopping & Attractions you can admire haute couture, jewellery, books, fine art and antiques.
Take advantage of the open spaces by exploring the Common on foot or on horseback, and after the exercise take a picnic in Cannizaro Park or refresh yourself at one of the local pubs by the common: The Crocked Billet, The Hand in Hand or The Fox and Grapes.
Visit Wimbledon Museum and Southside House for local history or the Museum of the All England Lawn Tennis Club. Over the years several well-known tennis stars have stayed in this flat for the Wimbledon Tennis Championships - the courts are within a 30 minute walk.
There is something for everyone in Wimbledon Village. Those of us who work or live here appreciate what a special place this is.
