About Val Metheringham

I purchased the Garden Cottage ten years ago as pied a terre while working for the BBC and it has remained our holiday home ever since. I have rented it with Homeaway ( Holiday rentals ) since 2008. The Terrace Cottage was purchased last year and has just undergone a complete renovation and is being rented for the first time this Spring.

Why Val Metheringham chose Richmond & Kew

The cottages are located in one of the loveliest streets in the area and are surrounded by stunning eighteenth century architecture, including two houses with blue plaques. There is no through traffic and it is just a short walk to the river with lovely riverside walks. A ten minute walk to Richmond Bridge and there is very good public transport. A tranquil setting, but in easy reach of shops, restaurants, theatres and cinemas and only 30 mins into the centre of London.

A lovely cottage in a delightful location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay in this lovely cottage. It is in a delightful location in a quiet cul-de-sac with the river walk and parks close by. There is a local bus stop at the top of the road and St Margarets train station is within easy walking distance.

Comfortable home away from home in great location

  • 4 of 5

The description of the cottage was quite accurate. It was very comfortable & provided me with a good base & also allowed me plenty of opportunity to entertain my two children & grandchildren who have moved to England from Australia. I also brought my daughter & another grandchild & all amenities required for a baby were provided including a stair barrier. The location to transport was excellent & the streetscape delightful. We hired a car which wasn't necessary as buses to the airport & Hampton Court were nearby as was St Margaret's station. Restaurants were plentiful nearby so it all made for an easy stay. The owner is a great communicator & was in touch via text to ensure we were happy. Excellent.

An oasis of calm...we really recommend it

  • 5 of 5

Lovely compact cottage, beautifully presented, cosy and warm and such a peaceful area. Great riverside walks, so handy for Richmond and Twickenham stadium. The owner, Val is very helpful and easy to contact and arrange things with. We had a super stay and can recommend it to anyone, we usually stay in a hotel in Richmond and this was so much nicer we could really chill and relax with our 2 daughters

Well worth another visit

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 had stayed here last year and we were pleased to be able to come again this summer. The cottage is absolutely delightful: it is quite compact but has everything you could want to feel totally at home. It benefits from being in a quiet cul-de-sac with no through traffic. It was especially lovely to sit out in the very private garden either to eat or just to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Large parks and the river are close by. We regularly used the foot-ferry to get to the other side of the river too. There are lots of useful and interesting shops and a railway station just a few minutes walk away in St. Margarets. Larger shops are fairly close by in Twickenham (a relatively short walk along the river) and Richmond. There are really good transport links to other areas, central London, and Heathrow.

As before, Val was incredibly helpful and welcoming. I'm hoping that the annual event we attend will be in the same area again next year so that we can pay yet another visit to our favourite London holiday home.

Idyllic cottage - charming and homely

  • 5 of 5

Over the course of a couple of months earlier this year, my husband rented this cottage on and off as a base for work when he was up in town. We then visited at the weekends whenever we could.

It was a heavenly, charming place that we immediately fell in love with. Its location is perfect. Hidden away down a no through road, beside the park and just around the corner from the river - you would have no idea that you were so close to the city. The parrots were incredible too. Loads of them in the trees above the cottage!

We spent many happy hours in Marble Hill Park and wandering along the river towards Twickenham or Richmond and stopping off at the White Swan on the way.

There is a bus stop at the top of the road which takes you into Richmond in a few minutes and also parking both on Montpelier Row over night or at the top on Richmond Road where you can park all day very reasonably.

The house itself was perfect. It was very well kept and equipped and always had great linen and towels.

We also loved opening the french windows onto the garden which you could sit in and feel really away from it all.

Finally, the owner Val is totally accommodating and was very kind at all times. She was a delight to deal with.

We hope to stay again when ever we need to be up in London again in the future.

VERY COMFORTABLE 'HOME AWAY' - Quaint and charming

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful garden cottage situated in a quiet and attractive 'no-through road' residential street. Beside Marble Hill Park and very close to the Thames tow path....so endless available and interesting walks. Very good bus service just at the end of the street and a pleasant walk to both St Margarets and Richmond. Good pubs and restaurants scattered about the close neighbourhood.

Cottage was immaculate and provided just everything you could want from large fluffy towels to a vast range of kitchen utensils etc.

Attached garden was marvellous as french doors opened onto it which brought the outside in and made it so relaxed. The odd squirrel appeared too!

A wonderfully character filled abode and one which we'd loved to return to one day.
