Well I don’t know about you but we are quite ready for things to start easing up as the lockdown restrictions lift in the UK. The week of sunshine we had in March has given us the boost we needed to keep powering on through to warmer weather and happy reunions with friends and family. While summer holidays abroad are still up in the air we’ve seen a huge surge in demand for staycations – which is great, because Craven House is the perfect spot for just that.
Here are six reasons you should book a serviced apartment rather than a hotel for your 2021 staycation, especially as we’re tentatively tiptoeing out of lockdown.
At Craven House – like many of you I’m sure – we were absolutely thrilled when the Prime Minister announced that hospitality could start reopening from the 12th of April. I think we can all agree it’s been a long and testing winter, and something to look forward to is very much needed. So without much further ado, we wanted to let you know that from April 12th, Read More
Thank you for your reservation at Craven House apartments.

Are you gazing at dreary tones of grey outside your window? Fear not, it may be February but if anything spells S-U-M-M-E-R I-S C-O-M-I-N-G, it’s the latest announcement that the Hampton Court Garden Festival (also known as the Hampton Court Flower Show) have released their dates for summer 2021!
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.
2020 has not been an easy year for business, has it?
In a year where the world has had to adapt to a completely new way of getting things done, we here at Craven House have been doing all we can to follow suit. Fortunately, it looks like things might just be starting to turn around which means business travel is picking up. Serviced apartments are a great alternative for safe business accommodation, and we’re ideally located close to London, which means you can avoid staying in the busy city centre.
We realise that you will already have a lot to worry about, so we are committed to ensuring that your accommodation at Craven House is not one of those things.
Here at Craven House we’ve been working hard to make sure your stay with us is as safe as possible. We want you to be able to arrive, kick up your heels and relax without having to worry about your surroundings, especially right now when we are all more conscious of our health. We take sanitation and cleanliness very seriously and have put all the processes in place to ensure that very high standards are met.
But don’t just take our word for it –
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:
We are very pleased and proud to announce that we have been accredited with the new Quality in Tourism Safe, Clean & Legal™ accreditation in response to the current COVID-19 situation.
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:
