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.

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.

Country Quiet, Easy City Access

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We - a family of four, two teenaged children - wanted a quiet place away from the hubbub of downtown London, but close enough to be able to get into town easily. We knew Twickenham from having lived there in the mid-90's (before kids!).

The cottage was exactly as advertised - and thoroughly wonderful. Quiet, clean, well appointed with everything we needed...and the owner, Val, was absolutely accommodating on everything we needed.

The kitchen was great and appointed with everything we needed. The big, fluffy towels were a big thing for my daughters. Plenty of hot water, washing machine, iron...everything we needed.

The location is wonderful...if you get tired of London there is more than enough to do in Richmond and Kew. You could spend a whole day just strolling through Marble Hill Park right behind the cottage, walking along the Thames and hitting a pub or two.

Many good restaurants in Richmond...only a 15 minute walk or 5 minute bus ride away.

And Hampton Court and Bushy Park are nearby as well.

All in all a great stay - comfortable, clean, bright and airy. Highly recommended ...and when we return to England we'll stay there again!

Perfect Holiday Location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
Myself, my wife and our daughters aged 10 and 12 very much enjoyed our
stay in this charming property during November.
For us the location was perfect, the street was very quiet with no
traffic noise.
The property was adjacent to a nice park and the river Thames, yet was
close to shops and restaurants and the amenities of both St. Margaret's
and Richmond. Also, it was very easy to catch the train into London to
visit all the famous sites.
The cottage is not large, but was just perfect for a family of four
and the garden was a bonus.
There was plenty of information about places to visit, but we would
definitely recommend a visit to Hampton Court Palace, as the kids
particularly enjoyed exploring the maze and also Windsor Castle, which
we found was easy to do by the train from Richmond.
The White Swan on the riverbank is also a must, nice setting for lunch
or just a drink.

Great Location

  • Submitted: Dec 4, 2013

Loved the location, very smart, the hub without the hubbub!
Easy access to Central London, but loads to do locally and especially
liked Kew Gardens.
Very nice property with everything needed for a holiday stay,
including a private garden. Also, a good selection of books, DVDs’ and
games and the cupboards had basic essentials such as tea, coffee and
sugar, as well soap powder and dishwasher tablets etc.
We were made to feel very welcome in this home away from home.
A success!

Cosy cottage in a beautiful peaceful location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Four of us were attending an event across the river in Richmond, and were delighted to find this super little cottage. It's in a beautiful and peaceful spot right next to Marble Hill Park. Even though our visit was during the hottest week of the summer, the cottage was cool enough with the sash windows open top and bottom. As it's at the end of a cul-de-sac then there was no traffic noise to keep us awake. The cottage is compact - the twin bedroom may feel a little small for 2 larger than average people - but was just fine for us (4 average sized adults).

The garden is very private and shaded in the morning and early afternoon - a delightful place to have breakfast and lunch and a friendly robin was a regular visitor. We were out and about so much enjoying the wonderful weather and the nearby parks that we didn't have time to use the large selection of games, DVDs, or books.

There's a great selection of shops and cafes only a few minutes walk away in St Margarets. An excellent butcher, large greengrocer, wholefood shop and french bakery were our particular favourites.

There are lovely walks along the river to both Twickenham and Richmond, and the foot ferry to Ham House was really handy. Val was incredibly helpful and welcoming and we are all looking forward to a return trip next year.
