Lovely find!! Very clean and comfortable accommodation. Luckily, we stayed over a weekend, as there would have been a problem with parking, otherwise. Really enjoyed our stay.

“A gorgeous quiet retreat after working in the city ....”

As a business traveller, I am fed up staying in noisey hotels.......I was looking for a place to stay mid week just outside the city......the summerhouse was such a great find.....
If your looking for somewhere as a base for London great! just a minutes walk and your on the Central line, if you want a quiet night stay in and have a takeaway from just steps away. If you prefer to eat locally, perfect you are on the pretty Buckhurst Hill high Street.
I just wanted to chill after a busy day so chilled with a bottle of wine and went to bed in peace and quiet looking up at trees through the sky light!
I can't fault it, plus as an interior designer very impressed with the interior....the images do not do it justice........yes a haven. Thanks Vicki & Pete loved it, will return as I love the privacy and would recommend your lovely Summer house to friends and colleagues.

“Is the summer house's owner a ghost?”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The first thing that went wrong was the lack of any sense of hospitality or politeness. The landlords never showed up to greet us or to explain, and the key to the flat was left at a nearby shop.
While there was a good selection of cereals, fresh milk and yogurt in the kitchen (but no coffee capsules for the nespresso coffee machine), these were never replenished in the 8 days of our stay. This is not what I was expecting for something defined as a "Bed and Breakfast".

But the worst thing was the awful smell in the access passageway, after a dog had been left free to foul there and in the garden, day after day. Two specimens of dog's excrement were left just in front of the summer house, where my daughter would run around.

Hence, two star in service and cleanliness is actually generous.

This place is like a sanctuary off the beaten track. It is the kind of place to come to of you would like to relax, but not be too far from anything. The city is easily accessible as are other areas because of the extremely convenient tube links. The manager (Vicki) is very pleasant and accommodating.
