Grounds and gardens

The French windows from the dining room open onto a mature garden, designed and laid out by David's late father, Tim, a great gardener, over 30 years ago. It has two majestic Magnolia Grandiflora producing white saucer-like flowers from June to November, a catalpa with delicate white flambeaux in July and a 25 foot Bay tree. There are also vibrant camellias. There is a patio with table and chairs for sitting out in summer, surrounded by containers holding a wealth of flowers, spring bulbs and lilies. A lure for garden lovers.

113 Pepys Road was a comfortable 'home from home'. Pleasantly situated in a quiet street overlooking a park and with easy access to public transport and central London
Mr Adrian A

very warm and friendly service!

Friendly and welcoming B&B. Clean, warm and quiet. Comfortable beds. Nice breakfast. Quite easy to get into London via train and tube. A stand up in shower rather than a shower attached to the bath taps would have been better but the bathroom was clean and private so that was good.
Mrs Ann C

The host family is very friendly and accommodating. They allowed us to leave our bags at the house after check-out and return later to pick our bags up. I definitely recommend this clean bed and breakfast.
Mrs Lisa G

Great host! Very supportive to get you whatever you need. Enjoyable visit.
