We moved down the road from Chelsea into this area nearly thirty years ago and have always been too happy here to move. We spend quite a lot of time in the countryside or travelling abroad, so we decided to let the flat out for short periods when we were away.

Sue Gamblin purchased this apartment in 1982

I got to know the area well when I lived in Chelsea and felt it was more convenient as far as transport and reasonably priced restaurants were concerned. Both the particular stretch of the Fulham Rd around the corner and Parsons Green (opposite the tube station) have become a thriving, vibrant up-market 'village' within central London, popular with professionals

Parsons Green is an ideal place to live. Not only are there excellent public transport facilities to access all London has to offer, but also easy access internationally via Eurostar or Heathrow and Gatwick airports.

Local facilities are excellent with numerous grocery stores, restaurants and shops all on your doorstep. There are several parks and the river's towpath for walkers/joggers/runners.

It is unusual for an apartment in this area of London to have a garden of this size. It is remarkably quiet and an ideal place to sit out in the morning for breakfast, or in the evening with a drink, watching the sun go down.

SURPASSED ALL OUR EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on a day that the taxi's were on strike, we called Sue and she had a private company meet us at the train station and whisk us off to her delightful flat. She met us and walked us through everything so that we were perfectly comfortable with all the operations in the flat. We stayed for a week with our two teenage granddaughters and they loved their room and private bath. We had just stayed in another wonderful apartment in Paris and were hoping this one would be just as good....it was....and we so appreciated the charming garden as we ate several meals outside...lovely. The location couldn't be any better. We were just minutes to the tube, great restaurants and some lovely shops, such as Cath Kidston and Emma Bridgewater were just around the corner. Sue shows great attention to detail in her home and it was truly appreciated by all. We highly recommend this property!

THIS APARTMENT IS A JOY TO STAY IN

  • 5 of 5
Girlie gathering from around the UK so enjoyed this wonderfully comfortable and fantastically well equipped garden flat. Super location and ideal for all our theatre/museum/restaurant/shopping destinations! Beds blissfully comfy with beautiful linens and bathrooms modern and spotless with upmarket toiletries. Elegant Victorian-style sitting room, perfect for relaxing in after a hectic daily itinerary. Next time we'll book in over the summer to fully enjoy the delights of the gorgeous cottage garden and
evening drinks on the terrace.

This apartment is a joy to stay in.

CHARMING HOME NEAR THE HEART OF IT ALL!

  • 5 of 5
Our travel party of two adult couples had the pleasure to enjoy this lovely “home away from home” for one week in August 2013. Sue clearly takes pride in her home and providing a quality experience to guests. From the air conditioning (a rarity in England!) to the Molton Brown bath products (a sumptuous treat!) to the selection of music CDs and reading materials, this flat provides a welcomed haven.

Although a bit farther out (easily 30-40 minutes by tube to London central), the Parson’s Green station is a convenient 5 minute stroll from the flat. A charming neighborhood which provides a calming residential feeling, save the fleet of Heathrow-bound jetliners which streams overhead every 30-45 seconds – really! – approximately 18 hours a day (sleeping hours were blissfully quiet, however).

Sue does an excellent job providing tourist materials, including take-away menus from local restaurants. We experienced the pleasures of Nuntee Thai three times in our week there! Great food and a 3 minute walk to the flat!

We appreciated that Sue was there to personally greet us when we arrived to give a go-through of the flat, including how-to operations, WiFi set-up, etc. On our second night, a light bulb in the living room blew, taking out a fuse and shutting down many other fixtures. We called Sue’s mobile and shewas there within 30 minutes, happily fussing with the fuse box while chatting about our day’s activities. We were grateful for her quick response, smiling service, and overall helpfulness.

I will say that the living room furnishings were not necessarily the most comfortable (by American standards, at least), simultaneously overstuffed yet unyielding; perhaps a refresh is in order. Task/ambiance lighting in the living room was also lacking (floor lamps, table lamps, etc.) These are *very* minor concerns in the grand scheme, but nonetheless observations that all four of us commented on.
Sue had helpfully pre-arranged ground transportation from Heathrow to the flat via a local agency. Although quoted a price, we wished we had also been informed this was a cash-only transaction. Thinking to get a better conversion rate, none of us had taken out cash at the airport. When I presented my credit card to the driver for the fare at drop off, it was summarily dismissed. With no knowledge of the neighborhood or ATM locations, we had to ask the driver to take us to a bank. Embarrasing and an unnecessary hassle.

Overall, highly recommend and hope to return!

GREAT LOCATION, NICE FLAT

  • 4 of 5
We all enjoyed this flat - it is in a trendy neighborhood with lots of good restaurants nearby and the tube is just around the corner with easy access to central London! It was hot and we were lucky to have air conditioning. The interior decor is lovely and cozy. The bathrooms are modern and clean. We would stay here again.

The Parsons Green area is like living in an English village in the centre of London, with it's parks, churches, pubs, shops and restaurants all on your doorstep. Step out of your home into a very up-market area of boutique shops ,food stores and excellent, reasonably priced restaurants. Maybe call in to the iconic London pub 'The White Horse' situated on Parsons Green and try an English 'pint' before having dinner at one of the many restaurants that are situated within 3-4 minutes of the apartment. There are also five supermarkets within a 5 minute walk so if you prefer eating on the terrace in the fragrantly planted garden, you won't have to carry your groceries far.

In The Garden Flat you can combine a very English experience with living in one of the most vibrant and exciting cities of the world.

Ideally positioned for all central tourist attractions.
