About Olwen Glynn Owen
I have a small business providing self-catering accommodation for people needing short term rentals for holidays or as temporary homes.
Olwen Glynn Owen purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Olwen Glynn Owen chose West Byfleet
This property is so convenient for travelling to London being very near to the station. Also handy for shopping in the village centre which has its own Waitrose supermarket. Yet it is quiet being tucked away in a historic conservation area on the Basingstoke Canal. It is a small cosy property with old world charm coupled with modern conveniences.
What makes this Apartment unique
As mentioned before, this has a lovely cottage-like feel but enjoys all modern amenities including super fast WiFi.

Great area lots to see and do
We enjoyed our stay very much
I stayed a week while in the UK on business. This is a perfect spot. So much better than staying in a hotel. It is very convenient, walk to restaurants, groceries, the train. The kitchen is a perfect size and the whole flat feels like a home. Enjoy!
What a lovely review. Thank you.
The cottage was lovely
The cottage was well situated in a quiet neighborhood. It was equipped with all you need for a relaxing holiday. There are a variety of places to dine.
Grocery store close by. Train station about 4 minuets away walking. Everyone in the area very nice and accommodating. The owner of the property very nice. I would definitely stay there again when I go back!
Thank you. What lovely and useful feedback.
Very comfortable apartment with lovely private garden
If you want convenience, but choose to be away from the bustle of the city, this lovely apartment is for you. Just a minute's walk to the train station and so many very good restaurants and shops. After 10 days in the town of West Byfleet, we felt like part of the town. The shop owners and restaurant/pub staffs were so warm and welcoming. We enjoyed being on a very quiet neighborhood street, and even had off-street parking. Easy access to most anywhere by train and an easy drive to Heathrow and many countryside destinations. My sister and I visited Guildford, Windsor, the Cotswolds, and Highclere Castle (for you Downton Abbey fans). A couple of days in central London filled out our itinerary. The Station Pub, Super Fish, That's Amore, and Sir & Madame restaurants all scored big with us. The beds in the apartment were so comfy, we almost didn't want to leave. Olwen was extremely responsive to a minor issue or two that we encountered! If we were ever to return to this area again, we would not hesitate to stay at the Lavenders again.
What absolutely lovely feedback. Its great to hear how this stay generated so much enjoyment. Downtown Abbey fans might like to note that one of the locations in the series is under a mile away from the apartment. The centuries old Byfleet Manor served as the home where Dame Maggie Smith's character lived. It is not open to the public any more but can be seen from the outside. As well as the restaurants mentioned, foodies might appreciate a top quality dining experience available in the London House restaurant within a few minutes walk of the apartment. Thank you again for leaving such an informative review. It is very much appreciated.
The property was very clean and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay.
I had a really lovely stay at the Lavenders in west byfleet , 2 minute walk to West Byfleet train station, 30 minutes to Waterloo London.
A 10 minute drive takes you to the beautiful Wisley Gardens for a lovely day out, and if you have children you are very close to Chessington and Thorpe park.
Would definitely stay here again.
The lavenders is in a great location.
Thank you very much for your kind remarks. I hope to welcome you again in 2017.
Nous avons passés un séjour très agréable au calme. La maison est idéalement située pour aller visiter Londres en train. La gare se situe au bout de la rue, à 4 minutes à pieds. Il y a des trains très régulièrement avec différent temps de transport (40/50 mns).
Nous avons aussi appréciés de pouvoir venir en voiture et de pouvoir la stationner devant la maison.
Logement idéal pour une famille de 4 personnes.
