Richmond upon Thames is such a magnet for tourism. It’s an incredible place to visit and only 10 miles from Central London. It’s a very short journey by train to central London (20 minutes to Waterloo) or via the underground (district line 30-40 minutes). Kew Gardens and Twickenham, the home of English rugby aren’t too far away either. The attractions of Central London call all be easily reached using the underground.
Accessibility: Richmond is not too far from London’s major airports Heathrow (approximately 25 minutes by car, alternatively you can get the underground Piccadilly line to Hammersmith, district line to Richmond 50 minutes); Gatwick (train to Clapham junction from Gatwick and then train to Richmond approximately 50 minutes). If you are travelling by car there are residents parking bays which you can get a permit for (approximately £5 a day) otherwise there are a few streets nearby without restrictions, although it’s on a first come first served basis.

We stayed at Gareth's apartment for a week during July 2014 and we were very satisfied with our stay. It is a great basement conversion and everything is brand new, clean and works very well. The bathroom is one the best ones I have ever used! It is an open-plan living room/kitchen area with all the amenities you need and it was great if you want to have breakfast at home and even make dinner a few days as well.
Gareth was a great host and very accommodating. Communication before and during our stay was great and he was welcomed us on the day we arrived and helped us with any question we had during our stay.
The only thing to bear in mind is that sound travel quite easily between the ground floor and the basement, but that was no problem for us.
The locations is also very good if you visit the Richmond area. The neighborhood is a quiet residential area and you are only a short walk away from the train station that takes you to central London in 20 minutes. You also have lots of grocery stores, small shops, cafes and restaurants in the area.
I would recommend the apartment to others and I am happy to come back in the future.
We stayed for 12 days un this flat. Very clean, all new, with everything you need to happily stay in Richmond. Next time we visit London - we are planning to also stay there.
Fab modern, sleek Euro style redo of basement flat on Richmond Hill. Surprisingly light where it needs to be light - I had jet lag and was grateful for the blinds in the BR ceiling where filtered light can come in from kitchen. Gareth and Marina have done a great job on this well-situated flat. Flat screen tis, internet, high end fixtures - very nice. They were great hosts too - looking after me when I needed it and leaving me to it all other times. They were also very understanding when I screwed up my dates and needed to stay another night.
Richmond, where I lived for several years in the past, is fairly sleepy at night but the attractions during the day are numerous. But you knew that before you looked into the location. And if you want something with modern luxury and convenient to all those things, I don't think you will find better or better value.
This basement apartment is a lovely, peaceful place to stay, away from the hustle and bustle of central London. It's been really well designed in a modern style to make the most of the space available, and was very clean and tidy. We had a great stay and would definitely return.
Thanks I had a lovely stay, nice apartment and good location to town centre.
Gareth's apartment is very modern and comfortable in a great location.
My only tip would be to bring any basics you require for cooking and washing as we were only supplied with oil, coffee and sugar.
The apartment was spotlessly clean & in a great location, perfect for our stay. Gareth was helpful and the whole process was very easy.
A comfortable and warm apartment with an excellent location being only 5 minutes walk to Richmond Station and Richmond Hill.
