2 rooms


Rooms sleep 1 – 2


On a quiet leafy street, the Haworths have brought country-house chic to South London. Philip and Winkle have filled their elegant Victorian townhouse with attractive fabrics, sunny colours and treasures from far-flung travels. The house glows, the garden is ravishing with parterre, arbour, brimming borders and secluded seats. Breakfasts are delicious and bedrooms are spacious: fine linen, lambswool throws, waffle robes, the scent of roses. Few people do things with as much natural good humour as Winkle, whose passions are cooking, gardening and garden history. Transport is close and you can be in Victoria in 15 minutes.

"Thank you Alistair Sawday for drawing my attention to this wonderful B&B. The room was extremely comfortable and the hosts so welcoming that it made it an awful lot easier to be away from home. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is a joy to come back to after a long day!"

Winkle's place really is different class. She made us feel more welcome than some of our best friends! Nothing was too much trouble, everything at this B&B is excellent. We especially enjoyed the breakfasts, with hot food laid out in heated pans on the sideboard for you to select from and wonderful home-made bread. Highly recommended, extremely comfortable in all respects.


The best B&B in England! Beautiful house and magnificent garden. Cozy room with White Company linens and fresh flowers from the garden. Winkle is one of the nicest people in the world. She will take an interest in whatever you want to do, offer suggestions on where to go or help you with transportation if needed. Breakfast is a feast with homemade bread, jams and fruit compote to accompany the made-to-order delicious full English breakfast - all served on beautiful china in a light-filled kitchen with views of her award-winning garden. Great location with easy access to central London.


Winkle's B&B is charming: the bedrooms are beautifully presented and the house has a calm and welcoming feel. I liked the little touches (lovely biscuits and tea in the room on arrival, interesting books on the bookshelf in the room). The breakfast room overlooks Winkle's exquisite garden, and the organic full English was delicious. I will certainly go again - it's like a home from home in London.
