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.

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

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.

Wohlfühlen wie zuhause-you feel good like at home

  • 5 of 5
Meine Familie (mein Lebensgefährte und unser 13jähriger Sohn) und ich haben das Häuschen sofort ins Herz geschlossen. Es bietet eine hübsche und zweckmäßige Einrichtung und harmonische Raummaße; die beiden Schlafzimmer sind gemütlich, die Betten bequem. Alles ist wunderbar sauber und geordnet. Man merkt auch nicht, dass es sich um eine Doppelhaushälfte handelt; die Wände sind gut gedämmt, überhaupt nicht hellhörig. Der Höhepunkt ist der schöne Garten und die wunderbare Umgebung. Wer Parks und Ruhe liebt kommt voll auf seine Kosten: Marble Hill und all´die anderen Parks in der unmittelbaren Umgebung; außerdem Hampton Court und Kew Gardens um die Ecke. Zur Bahnstation St. Margarets geht´s zu Fuß in 10 Minuten durch die netten Straßen von Richmond. Die Zugfahrt nach Waterloo Station dauert 30 Minuten. Das kling vielleicht etwas lange. Aber wir waren abends immer wieder froh, der Hektik und den Menschenmengen der Großstadt Londons zu entkommen,
Der Kontakt zu Val per e-mail auf Englisch klappt wunderbar. Sie geht auf jede Frage ein und hat auch das Parkproblem in der Montpellier Row wohlwollend gelöst.
Für jeden, der nicht mittendrin, aber trotzdem in London Urlaub machen möchte, das ideale Quartier. Ich würde es jederzeit wieder buchen.

Owner's Response: Review translated by Google:
Review # 9100216 "Feel like home-you feel good like at home"
My family (my partner and our 13 year old son) and I immediately closed the cottage in the heart. It offers a pretty and functional furnishings and harmonious space dimensions; the two bedrooms are cozy, the beds comfortable. Everything is wonderfully clean and orderly. It also does not realize that it is a detached house; the walls are well insulated, not at all noisy. The highlight is the beautiful garden and the beautiful surroundings. Who loves parks and rest get their costs: Marble Hill and all'die other parks in the immediate area; also Hampton Court and Kew Gardens around the corner. At the station you can see St. Margaret's foot in 10 minutes by the nice streets of Richmond. The train ride to Waterloo Station takes 30 minutes. The sounding perhaps a little long. But we were in the evening always glad to escape the hustle and bustle and the crowds of the big city of London,
The contact Val by e-mail in English works just fine. It responds to every question and also the parking problem in the Montpellier Row resolved favorably.
For anyone who is not in the middle, but still want to do in London vacation, the ideal district. I would not hesitate to book it again.

CLASSY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We spent a short break in this very nice property in January of this year, specifically to shop the last of the London sales and see a West End show.
We had a very enjoyable time and were most impressed with the classy location, which was also extremely quiet. The cottage was cosy and warm and excellent for transport. We loved our stay so much that we made a return visit a couple of months ago, the weather by then was warm enough to have lunch in the beautiful garden. The River Thames between Richmond and Twickenham is lovely, with lots of interesting places to visit and we loved it!
