This 4-person sized tent in our secluded, usually quiet garden is ideal for one or two campers on a budget! Access Central London in just 25 mins from New Malden Station. Enjoy continental breakfast provided on our shady patio or sunny decked area.

The space

The tent has a separate zip-up double sleeping compartment, and a living area large enough to stand up in. It is pitched in our generally quiet, medium-sized back garden between our willow and cherry trees, on the lawn. A good quality double inflatable mattress with your choice of either duvet or sleeping bag, feather or foam pillows, should provide you with a comfortable night's sleep close to nature; there is also a single camping mattress suitable for a third person, available for an extra £10 per night. The living space has camping chairs, a side table, floor rugs, extra blankets, a torch lantern and a folder with wifi details and local area info.

Guest access

The tent is a roomy Kampa Brean 4 Classic Polycotton Air Tent. The polyester cotton fabric allows airflow, making it more comfortable than a standard man-made fibre tent. We provide a back door key for use of the shared bathroom with both shower and bath. There is also a further separate toilet facility. Continental breakfast is included, and can be served on our shady patio or on our sunny decked area. We have a conservatory dining room if raining/cold!

Interaction with guests

Our mobile will be on 24 hours a day, if you need to ask us anything at all while you are here. You may use the Conservatory for charging phones/laptops. There is also a fridge in the Conservatory for your use. The kitchen may be used for making hot drinks and toast only. There are many restaurants and takeaways of different kinds within 15 mins walk. The lounge is for our family use only.

Other things to note

We have an elderly, very friendly labrador who also uses the garden, as well as 2 cats. At the end of the garden is a workshop which we let to a local stringed instrument-maker. He is usually quiet and keeps sociable hours. There are 3 of us staying in the main house - ourselves and a lodger.

Briljant place to stay. Sara and Martin are very welcoming hosts. The tent is large and comfortable. New Malden is within walking distance of lovely Richmond Park, has fast and frequent train services to Clapham Junction and Waterloo and some very fine Korean restaurants. Highly recommendable.

Sara and Martin are very warm and welcoming hosts. It was wonderful to be able to camp in Greater London, in this quiet and peaceful area of New Malden. To receive such a nice breakfast every morning, always with added fruit and juice, which we could eat in the sun on their terras on most mornings (and if not it was due to the weather - nobody could help that). To pet their sweet animals and have the beautiful connecting conversations like we had, about all sort of things. Experiencing their care of my daughter and me being warm enough, giving extra blankets. Very kind and absolutely recommended!

The stay was wonderful. The tent was organized, clean, and very cozy! The mattress slept wonderfully and I really enjoyed this unique experience. The garden was inviting and the breakfast was quite nice. The commute is a bit long but fairly simple by train, and other than that, no complaints!

We really have a great experience in Sara and Martin's place. The tent was big and clean, it was a perfect place to stay , but the weather was too cold to sleep(we choose the wrong time) Sara & Martin were so nice, they let us stay in the house so we could keep warm. And also the breakfast was amazing, we could choose different meals everyday from many foods. We really appreciate everything they did and also highly recommend them! :D

My partner and myself are in our 50s, and enjoy B&B ing around the country. We are a folk duo, both play guitar & sing, mostly at Folk Clubs & charity gigs, but do get the occasional paid one! We also love watching our favourite musicians 'live', especially at festivals. We enjoy seeing our 5 grown up children when we can, walking in the country, discovering local history and Real Ale.
