My 2 bed apartment in an old coach house with period victorian features and cute garden is only a 5 minute walk to the station with its 3 train lines providing easy access to all that London has to offer. There are 2 old pubs and a deli close by.
Live like a local in the Royal borough of Richmond upon Thames with all it's sites only a 20 minute train ride from London Waterloo.
The apartment is in an area of Richmond called The Alberts which has, close by, a fantastic deli and 2 great old pubs (see pictures).
Richmond Park (London's largest park) was originally the Kings hunting grounds and is a 15 minute walk away.
Also within a 10 minute walk from the apartment is Richmond Green which hosted jousting contests in the 17th century. The cute lanes around the green contain great cafés and are also next to numerous old pubs and restaurants on the River Thames (a picture of the river with all its pubs and restaurants are included)
The Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew are right next door to Richmond (a 5 minute tube ride away) and the home of rugby at Twickenham stadium is within 2km (5 minute train journey).
In addition to the quick trains to Waterloo, Richmond is also on the underground which goes directly to the west end (Hyde Park, Notting Hill, Covent Garden, Westminster and Leicester sq) and is also on the overground which goes directly to North London (you can be in Camden within 35 mins).
And if you want a trip away from London you can also pop in and say hello to the Queen in Windsor on a direct train in 30 mins ;-)
It is not far from Heathrow and if you require a cab then let me know and I will organise a local company to pick you up as they are significantly cheaper than the black cabs.
If you need any other information then please contact me.
You have access to the entire flat with washing machine, dishwasher and if you require parking then I can organise parking permits for £3 a day.
The 2 bedrooms are set up with a double bed in each of them. A 5th person can sleep on the sofa however please note this is not a sofa bed.
It's your flat.. Have fun :-)
Great House in a Great Location... The house was clean and tidy and had all that was needed for a comfortable stay. Jeremy was very helpful and flexible.
We had a great stay at Jeremy's garden flat in Richmond. It's close to a playground which our two small boys thoroughly enjoyed as well as to shops and the Thames River. There was plenty to do in and around the area and Richmond is very well connect by trains & buses etc. Jeremy was a perfect host and supplied lots of useful local knowledge.The booking process went smoothly and we found everything we needed for a wonderful family holiday. Kind regards Patrick & Debbie
Great place to experience London and Richmond!
This is a lovely place both for couples and families, who want to stay in a romantic little house, close to London and in the middle of the little suburb town Richmond. The picture do show this nice place very well and you can recognize that your host put dedication into it.
There are very nice pubs just around the corner and the wonderful park of Richmond and the Kew Gardens in walking distance. Also just 10 min walk away is the River Thames with a very nice river side, boats for rent and nice pubs and cafes again. We planned to be on London, but at the end stayed half of the time in Richmond as the place is so nice. The way to Richmond station is a 5 min walk. From there it is another 25 min train ride and you are at Waterloo station in the middle of London (make sure you take the train, which has just 1 stop not the one, which stops at any tiny station).
The flaw (basement of a tiny house), it clean, nice and ideal for up to 4 people (we were 5, 2 adults and 3 kids, which was perfectly fine as well). For children with kids, there is a nice playground right outside of the house, which is not in use in the evening. So you do not need to worry about your evening silence. It is worth mentioning that Richmond is close to Heathrow airport. We did not bother a lot about the planes you hear once and a while and they stop flying in the evening after 22:00. Jeremy is a perfect host. He showed us around, prepared all for our arrival and helped us to orientate in and around the house and Richmond.
Next time in London this will for sure be our first choice again. Thank you Jeremy!
Thanks Gregor. Was great meeting you and that's brilliant you had a good time with the family. Thanks for the point about the train and make sure of catching the quick trains which are only 20 mins. I'll make sure I get a timetable in future. Cheers and you are always welcome if in town again.
All the best
