Festive Things To Do in Surrey

By / 5th November, 2020 / What's happening / No Comments

Christmas in 2020 is going to look a little different. While it might not be the sort of Christmas we’re accustomed to in south-west London, there is still plenty to be excited about – even with another lockdown – in the upcoming festive season.

We here at Craven House simply can’t wait.

We realise that it might be tricky to get everyone you need under one roof this year so, if you need comfortable, homely spaces for visitors to stay, Craven House is ready to step into the breach. Our refined serviced apartments will make them feel perfectly at home while giving everyone the space they need to be safe this season.

Thankfully, Craven House is located in the ideal place for you to make the most of all the merry winter activities coming up in the Surrey area.

The nights might be getting a bit longer and the days a bit chillier, but with a heap of exciting events still on the go, you and your loved ones can make it a season to remember.

So, in light of that, here are just a few of the festive treats we’re most looking forward to in and around Surrey.

Summer in Hampton Court

Well, it’s been a strange year hasn’t it? Who would have thought that we would spend a large chunk of 2020 in lockdown. But while we’ve been socially distancing in the physical sense, we’ve certainly felt like we are ‘in this together’ in the emotional sense. Here in Hampton Court and our surrounding villages, we’ve really banded together as a community and it’s been a joy to watch. Mezzet, our local Lebanese restaurant baked fresh bread and gave it away for free every day in March and April, Miss Polly’s café supplied food boxes, cooked meals and delivery of delicious treats and our butcher set up a handy order and delivery system.

But now our local shops, eateries and attractions are slowly reopening, and it’s our turn to help them out after a tough few months. So if you’re planning a staycation in our area, here are some spots you can visit:

Staycation Dreaming in Hampton Court

By / 17th June, 2020 / What's happening / No Comments

Here at Craven House we are so grateful that we’ve been able to keep open over the last few months, offering a ‘home-away-from-home’ for those on our frontlines and people awaiting repatriation flights. But now life is slowly returning to some form of normal we’ve got summer holidays on the mind. And with this glorious weather set to continue, we’re sure we’re not the only ones.

Goes without saying that summer getaways are going to look a bit different this year but we’re actually really excited about the idea of discovering more of England and keeping things close to home. A break without the less-than-fun airport experience sounds pretty lovely to us, wouldn’t you agree?

That’s exactly where The Staycation comes in. Sunny days enjoying the beauty of England, leisurely strolls along the River Thames, long hikes through the Surrey Hills – sounds idyllic doesn’t it?

We’re gearing up to welcome staycationers back to Craven House, here’s what to expect:

Need a safe place to stay right now? We’re still open.

By / 29th March, 2020 / What's happening / 2 Comments

It’s an unprecedented time in our history. All across the world we have watched countries close down and head into their homes. Our medics are serving selflessly on the frontlines and the best we can do to help them is to stay home. But sometimes that’s not always possible.

Here at Craven House we know that despite the lock down there are a number of reasons you might still be in need of a safe place to stay. Whether you are awaiting a repatriation flight home, your home renovations have stalled and you can’t actually live there right now, or you work on the front lines and need to stay apart from your family for a few weeks, a serviced apartment might be just the thing you need.

Our apartments are safe, comfortable and spacious – even in a less than ideal situation. Here are some ways we are working to make Craven House as safe and accessible as possible for those who need a place to call ‘home’ right now:
