About Laura Gray

I live with my husband and daughter in the main house. My husband and daughter work full time and I myself work part time.

Laura Gray purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Laura Gray chose Surrey

We had lived in Virginia Water for many years we loved the area and had good friends here. Then my mother became unwell, we need a larger house. Chalk House came on the market with a self contained flat, perfect, my mum would be next door but independent. Goodnews,

my mum recovered and never came, Then the aupair arrived to look after our daughter, but she's now grown up so we have an empty flat. We have fully refurbished the flat and would love to share it with people who would love to visit our beautiful part to the country.

Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Chalk House Annexe is a comfortable, well-equipped and friendly spot for two persons.

  • 4 of 5

THE PROPERTY rates 9/10.

The Annexe is ideal for two adults. The furnishings and equipment are above average, everything functions correctly and the place is spotlessly clean. The owners are very pleasant and helpful without being obtrusive. About the only improvement we could suggest would be more spacious seating in the living area. We would definitely consider for a future visit.

Note that a car is almost mandatory - the train service is good, but there is no bus service, local shopping is limited, and most local attractions, including pubs, are 20-30 minutes walk away along often busy roads.

OUR EXPERIENCE WITH OWNERS DIRECT rated 4/10.

The OD on-line experience is far from ideal, clearly oriented to selling the merits of OD rather than providing a simple, clean interface between owners and travellers. Other companies do a much better job of just providing full property and availability info plus a simple booking and payment service. As examples of OD overkill:

- It is unlikely that a traveller, having researched, booked and paid for a holiday let in advance, needs a "final reminder" to remember to go.

- It is offensive to spam the traveller with commercials for future 'getaways'.

- It is puerile and absurd to require a 'Yes/No" preliminary to the OD request for a trip review when either response leads to the same page.

- It is objectionable to use the traveller's contact data to solicit their interest in becoming a future owner client of OD.

I shall be careful to avoid using OD in future.

A beautiful apartment in a beautiful village close to historic Windsor Forest

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed three nights in the annex at Chalk house and found it to be spacious and comfortable, very well equipped, modern and spotlessly clean. The house has a beautiful garden which adds to the charm. There are two markets and other shops a mere two-minute walk away in the village of Virginia Water and an excellent, old food pub - "The Rose and Olive Branch" - a short drive away. Virginia Water is set in a lovely, wooded area close to places like Windsor and Eton, Ascot, Runnymede and the Thames. It is also an easy drive from Heathrow Airport.

Perhaps most important, the owners, Laura and David, were unfailingly friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed meeting them and would not hesitate to stay at the Chalk House annex again. Highly recommended.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here right after we moved over from the states while we were apartment hunting. It was lovely. It is close to Heathrow and the train station which made it easy to get around. The property is fully equipped, and very clean and comfortable. David and Laura went above and beyond the call of hospitality, giving us the perfect balance of privacy and cheery help whenever we needed it. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone!

Great stay for Couples and Singles

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home makes the perfect place as a base for a couple or a single traveler! The home is close to the local transportation of train, bus or cab. It is a quiet neighborhood with plenty of space to stroll in your free moments. The flat itself is modern, well supplied, and private with a separate entrance, roomy for one person or two, and offered at a reasonable rate. The owners were helpful and friendly, able to be flexible in times of stay etc. Everything that one might need to cook is supplied in this wonderful flat. Stores are just down the street. Windsor, Staines, and London are within easy reach by car or train. A longer walk to Windsor Great Park is also doable for guests. I stayed there for two separate weeks, and will return again!
