About the Homestay
Our names are Sue and Stuart and we live in a quiet suburb of London, but with great transport links we are only 30 mins from the centre of London. The underground station is a 10 minute bus ride away!
The house was built in the 1930s, it has 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are available for guests to book. The bedrooms available to guests are a room with a double bed and the second room is a twin bedded room. There is a bathroom which has a separate shower and bath (It's our pride and joy!). There is also an additional toilet on the ground floor.
There is a quiet sitting room at the front of the house which guests are welcome to use and a large open plan area at the back of the house which includes the kitchen, dining and another tv sitting area. We have a lovely garden, which backs onto the beautiful Cherry Woods. There is also a decking area where we can eat outside, which we try to use as often as we can (weather permitting!)
Stuart loves cooking and will try to make you feel at home by finding out what you like and making it! We eat lots of fish, but if there is anything you want to eat we will try our best to get it for you! Guests are also invited to our special breakfast on a Sunday (scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, tomatoes and as much toast as you can eat!)
We have two lovely black cats and we ask guests if they don't want a sleeping partner just to shut their door!
We enjoy meeting guests and finding out all about you and your culture!

My stay at Sue and Stuart's home has been practically PERFECT first of all for the kindness of my hosts, then for the comfort and quietness of their house and for the cosy room where I could relax after my daily wanderings in the busy city centre, but this review wouldn't be complete if I didn't mention the always interesting morning talks at breakfast about theatre, concerts, foxes and cats (how is old boy Charlie?) and London's life in general that were the best way to start the day. Thank you again.
Great host, very helpful. Beautiful house and lovey cooking. Thankful for the experience. (:
My stay at Sue & Stuart’s was beyond amazing. I stayed there for 6 months, the food is delicious and so are the puddings!
I loved staying at Sue's and Stuart's house. They are a very lovely couple and Stuarts cooking skills and their great insider tips make your stay even better. I would definitely recommend here and always will choose these two and their cats when I visit London next time.
If you look for a marvelous trip, this is the perfect destination!!! Meals are always delicious and refined, the house is clean and really nice. Sue and Stuart are very charming and always available to advise better places to visit!
They are very good people. They have a nice garden, where we had meals. Stuart cooked different types of food and it was a great experience to try it. The house is situated in a quiet place not far from underground station and Wimbledon with great tennis courts.
Good family, nice dinner, a quiet place. That's awesome.
I was there for the entire month of February, in the home of Sue and Stuart.
The house is beautiful and the rooms are very nice.
The family is very friendly and are always ready to help you.
I was very happy to have been in their home and spending with them my experience in the UK.
I advise everyone to contact this family for an experience or a trip to London.
Thank you so much for everything, I was very very happy to stay with you.
Greetings to Sue and Stuart, VERY VERY LOVELY!
I've spend the last four month at Sue's lovely place and can honestly say that it has the best host family experience of my life. Sue and Stuart are two of the most friendly and helpful people I've ever met and made my exchange semester in London an unforgettable experience. The rooms were really nice, comfortable and big and offered everything I needed. Furthermore, I was really surprised that I did not find London's best food in a fancy restaurant but at this lovely homestay as Stuart is one of the best chefs! Every evening I was invited to dine with the family and get a taste of his delicious vegetarian international cuisine. (Best curry ever!)
They also introduced me to the British way of life and I already miss the special breakfast on Sunday and the interesting conversations.
I would definitely come back and can only recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience an unforgettable stay in London.
I was made most welcome at Sue's place.The room was lovely the food was great and the company too'
All instructions how to get to their place were easily followed.
I would recommend them as good hosts who are keen to help you in any way to get around and to get the most out of your time with them
