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, you will be able to book your staycations with us, right here in the heart of South West London.

Our serviced apartments are totally self-contained, making them a safe and sound home away from home. We take the cleanliness of our apartments and safety of our guests incredibly seriously and strive to uphold a very high standard of safety. We deep clean the apartments between guests, steaming everything we can. There are no shared living spaces between apartments and we can offer you a remote check-in via FaceTime.

And to further set your mind at ease, last year we were awarded the Quality in Tourism Safe, Clean and Legal accreditation as well as the ‘We’re good to go’ accreditation from Visit England. This is the official UK mark to signal that we’ve followed all the latest and updated government advice for opening and operating safely in the current environment, we have a Covid-19 Risk Assessment in place to maintain cleanliness and social distancing and we are doing everything we can to ensure Craven House and all our apartments are safe.


Hospitality Awards

We know that everyone is so looking forward to a change of scenery and something different to do. We usually boast about how calming and relaxing our apartments are for your staycations, how they are the perfect spot to just unpack, unwind and rest. But we’re sure you will want to actually get out and do things and see new sights – we’ve all been tucked up in our own homes for months on end. Luckily, Craven House is perfectly situated for lots of lovely excursions to compliment your break.

With Bushy Park right on our doorstep we really are spoiled for choice when it comes to pretty walks. The Thames is a stones throw away, as are the spectacular gardens of Hampton Court Palace, although be warned, you do have to book in advance now for garden tickets. National Trusts are still open for visitors and there are some beautiful ones in our area, we recommend Winkworth Arboretum, Hatchlands Park, Polesden Lacey or Claremont Landscape Garden. Painshill – location of many scenes from Netflix’s Bridgerton – is also close by, along with Wiseley and Kew Gardens. But again, please remember to book entry tickets.

Kingston is sure to be buzzing with shoppers when the shops are able to open again and you will find many a pretty restaurant along the river champing at the bit to serve customers again.

There are many, many things to look forward to this coming summer. Why not make a visit to Craven House one of yours? Book here. We can’t wait to welcome you.
Best wishes,
