We specialise in offering an English speaking family home in a clean, warm and friendly environment.

Me and my wife live in a 4 bedroom home with a large lounge complete with a 6 seater dining room table, large separate kitchen complete with a 4 seated breakfast table, downstairs toilet / hand basin and a large garden. Upstairs we have 4 bedrooms two are guest rooms and will accommodate up to 3 people comfortably, 1 which over looks the rear Garden and the other room a double bed room (which can include a single bed if required) for couples with child which over looks the front of the house. Our own bedroom has an en suite, there is a separate bathroom with over head shower and hand basin (for guests only) a further toilet upstairs with hand basin which is also for guest only.

    Our homestay with Sandy and Len was amazing. They are lovely hosts willing to open up and share their stories. They welcomed us warmheartedly, so we felt like home from the first moment. They gave us a lot of great advice and travel tips. The breakfast was always a delight with a huge range of cereals.

    The room is bright, comfy and very clean. It is fully furnished including a super comfortable queensize bed. The house has a lot of charm. It felt cozy and welcoming the moment we went in. The kitchen is very well equipped and everything is super tidy and clean.

    Stoneleigh is bit outside from London, but since the house is situated directly beside the train station (1 minute walk), it only takes 30 minutes to get to Waterloo, which is basically central London. We were surprised how little time it takes to go to the city. Furthermore, the trains go every 15 minutes, which is pretty convenient. Across their house you can find The Station, which is a great authentic British Pub. We loved the Pork Belly and good cold beer.

    We loved staying with Sandy and Len and will definitely come back if we get the chance. Thank you for having us and hope to see you soon.

    Hi Friederike & Mo.

It was a pleasure to host you both, you are great guys who put themselves out to spend some time out of your holiday period to have a chat with us which was appreciative. Since we have never been to Germany it was great getting an insight into what seems a lovely country, I do hope that both me and Sandy get a chance to visit your home country sounds fantastic. Both me and Sandy wish you all the best in your chosen careers and we wish you both the very best in your future.

    My colleague and I stayed here with Leonard and his family as we were working in New Malden for 11 nights.
    They have a loverly home in a nice quite street a stone throw away from the train station which is around 20mins from Central London. They have full amenities available, excellent WIFI, and ample parking. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. There's lots of local shops and a Pub just up the road.
    Should I be working near Len again he will be my first call for accommodation.
    Great hosts
    Great stay.
    Thanks once again Leonard

    For me my stay with Len and Sandy was brilliant, they are very genuine and wonderful people, they also have a very lovely home, and I was made to feel like part of the family. I found them very cultural, embracing all nationalities from around the globe, and Sandy has even learnt to cook cuisines from the Caribbean. They are clean, tidy and down to earth people, I would definately stay again.

    Len and Sandy were a very kind and lovely hosts for me. They lend me all the things which I needed during my stay, such a hair dryer and an electric adaptor, and they offered me a cup of coffee and biscuits when I arrived at home in the night. They live in the zone 5, and it seems at first that they are too far from the main London tourist attractions, but the Stoneleigh train station is about 1 minute walking, and the trains arrive to Waterloo station (central London) in about 27 minutes! So, if you are looking for a friendly host family, a cheap homestay and a place with easy access to the city centre, Len and Sandy are a good option.

    At first, we were afraid that we would be far off the center of London. But soon we found out, how easy it is to reach London. It takes only a few minutes to reach the station from the house of Len and Sandy which is definitely a marvelous place. The hosts really care for their guests so that you feel welcome from the first time you enter their house.
