Richmond is a beautiful town which oozes history and some great shops, a great riverfront and some famed views from the top of Richmond Hill.
With Richmond Park, Kew Gardens and the river on our doorstep as well as very frequent trains to Waterloo in just 15 minutes and 20 minutes on the underground to South Kensington, Richmond enjoys the best of both London and country life.
With amazing restaurants, cafes, delis, patisseries, pubs and bars, not to mention three cinemas, two theatres and lots to see and do, Richmond has a lot to offer all the family.
Great connections from Richmond station (4 minute walk) with quick links to central London (20 minutes to Waterloo) and on Underground (District Line) and Overground.
Other Things to Note
This is a basement flat. It means that you will hear the pitter patter of feet above you but it really is not intrusive and is in fact soundproofed for. Other guests will testify to this. The bedroom ceiling is soundproofed and so is the main sitting room. This reduces the noise significantly.
The soundproofing means that when you are in bed, you do not hear sound from the TV or people above. And you also don't hear feet.
In the main sitting room the soundproofing means you don't hear any voices or talking. However, when someone walks across the floor above, you do hear some of the steps but it's really not that bad at all. It really isn't.
If you are concerned about this, please ask us and we will seek to reassure you.
There is one thing that you might find odd about the layout of the apartment. The bedroom is off the kitchen. You walk through the main sitting room into the kitchen and then into the bedroom.
It really isn't an issue to anyone that stays. The flat is very well presented and it flows naturally from one room to the other. If you are concerned about this, please ask.
A great location very central with easy access to Richmond and the station. Simon and Nicola were great hosts and the flat was perfectly appointed with everything I could have hoped for - thank you, highly recommended
Simon and Nicola have created an amazingly comfortable flat. All of the little conveniences are provided, including a hair dryer, a coffee maker, and coffee, which made my stay not only convenient but enjoyable. I definitely felt like I was staying at a "home away from home" and not just in another hotel room.
The location of the flat is also amazing. It is incredibly close to the high street, with a variety of shops, pubs, and restaurants. Simon has created a guidebook to the area, including many of the highlights of Richmond. This was incredibly helpful in determining where to go and what to see! The close location to Richmond Station made it easy to get around, and central London was only a tube ride away.
Simon and Nicola were excellent hosts during my stay, and I highly recommend this flat.
Simon & Nicola are lovely hosts and this flat is perfect in a great spot in Richmond.
The location is ideal, about 5-6 minutes walk to Richmond station, very close to the shops and also located at the bottom of Richmond Hill so that you can go for a run in Richmond park, the location could not be better.
The flat had everything I needed, the bed was very comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with all of the essentials. The flat is at basement level but there’s plenty of natural light and it has a warm and comfortable feel. The cleaner comes in to freshen up once a week which is wonderful and the Wifi worked perfectly the whole time I was staying.
I would definitely recommend staying here if you’re looking for convenience and comfort in Richmond.
Thanks again for such a great stay Simon & Nicola!!
We stayed 2 weeks in Simon and Nicola's basement apartment. The apartment is as you see in the pictures, its cosy with good living room space, and a fully functional kitchen. Location is superb, right in the center of Richmond, with supermarkets and restaurants within minutes, and fast direct train into Waterloo station. Simon and Nicola are pleasant and good hosts. Will recommend stay in the apartment.
Simon arranged for us to enter the apartment early on the day which was much appreciated. Flat is lovely - exactly as described and as it looks on the photos. We know Richmond very well and flat's location is second to none: 2 minutes walking from shops, 5 minutes walking from Richmond train station (from where it is 20 minutes to central London), or 10 minutes walking from Richmond riverside. We stayed for a week, so a completely functional and equipped kitchen was great. Attention to detail is visible throughout the flat - it really makes you feel welcome. Sincere recommendations.
We (2 adults and a child) stayed for 3 weeks in Simon´s and Nicola´s basement flat and found it had everything that´s needed. The flat is very functional has a dishwasher and a washing machine and a cleaner comes in once a week and the kitchen is well equipped. The location is great close to Richmond Centre, Shops and Railwaystation and also well connected with bus stations. Nicola and Simon were very nice and pleasant hosts and every little wish we had was promptly executed. So I can only recommend this flat. We would certainly try to book it again if we needed accommodation in Richmond.
We stayed for 3 weeks in Simon And Nicola's basement apartment. The location was perfect for us, it is situated only minutes from the nearest supermarket and train/underground station and bus links and would highly recommend staying here. Nicola responded very quickly to my request for a couple of items we wanted. She was always friendly and made us very welcome, whilst our privacy was ensured. On my arrival date, she left us some chocolates and milk which were very welcome. The cleaner coming in weekly was a real bonus and much appreciated. The facilities in the apartment are excellent and met all of our needs. The white board, which is all of one one wall in the living area, proved invaluable to us for impromptu notes. All in all, great place to stay as Richmond Park, Kew Gardens and the river are easily accessible.
