We live on site in the main house. The Coach House is as the foot of our garden sectioned off by a gated fence. We built it in 2009/2010. I work from home as a lawyer.
Robin purchased this apartment in 2010
Privacy quiet but close to Hammersmith which is a CentralLondon hub
This holiday property is accurately represented by its Web site: It was clean, warm, well appointed, surprisingly spacious. The owner was personable and very helpful. Convenient central London location close to amenities and transport. All in all, we recommend it highly and would return.
After a long search for an appartment or hotel near Hammersmith I stumbled upon this offer - and it was the best possible choice to make. The apparment is in great shape with new and modern kitchen equipment (even an oven, which is not overall common), a spacious living room, a small, but absolutely sufficient bedroom and a nice bathroom. The appartment itself was very tidy and clean; everything in it worked to 100%.
As others have written before, it is not in the center of Hammersmith, but the bus only needs five Minutes to the tube station Hammersmith. From there you can explore most of the tourist sites in London within 30 Minutes. The part of London where the appartment lies, Barnes, also offers some restaurants, nice pubs and with the London Wetland Centre a real hotspot for friends of nature and birds.
The contact with the owner was very nice and he proved to be really helpful while we stayed there. Questions I had in advance were answered very quick and friendly.
In total, I wouldn't know how it could have been any better - I would definitely recomend this appartment to almost anyone, with this slight limitation: It is listed as suitable for the elder and infirm, And although it is completely on the ground level I would have slight doubts wether the bathroom is really suitable for people who have difficulties lifting their legs. But that really remains the only limitation I would make.
My husband and I found this property to be perfect for our stay in London. We enjoyed the comfort of the extra room and the ability to have our breakfast and sometimes dinner there. Robin was very helpful with suggestions and answers to our questions. The bus stopped across the street to take us to the Center where we could take the Tube/bus to any place. We would definitely stay there again.
This was our second stay at this rental - that should say enough! We loved it as much the second time as the first and found it very convenient to our son's house at the other end of Barnes on the 419 to Richmond and to downtown London via the 419 to Hammersmith to catch the Tube into the center of London.
We would definitely rent this house again. It's cozy and modern and airy. It is very clean and well furnished. Dishwasher plus a washer/dryer combination so you can pack light! Communication with the owner is easy. I would definitely recommend this to friends or relatives - in fact, already have! We will be back in about a year and hope it will be available!
We loved staying in this coach house for many reasons: its central location for visiting our son and for getting into central London; it was spotlessly clean and modern; it was in a quiet location; a major bus line stopped right outside the door; the TV was good and the internet worked very well. It was very private, had a lovely patio with a table and chairs for enjoying the great weather we had, and a place to dry clothes washed in the washing machine in the kitchen. If we have any negatives, and really it's just a very minor thing: it's that the flimsy plastic shower curtain should be replaced with something more sturdy, e.g. with metal reinforced holes to hang on the hooks. With all the pulling it gets, plastic grommets will tear immediately and then it's hard to control the curtain. But this is so minor; it would just make showering easier because the curtain would not flop around and open, allowing water to splash to the floor.
The twin beds should be pushed together in advance and made up as one bed when a couple is expected (as in our case). Again, a very minor issue.
We would recommend this to friends and relatives and we would use it again if the occasion arose to visit our son in Barnes in the future.
The owner is very nice and friendly, lives nearby, and was easily reachable by email and cell phone.
We mostly were with our son in the center of Barnes, but it was easy to get there on the 419 and it was only a 15 minute walk to another bus which went to Barnes as well as to Hammersmith where one can connect with several Tubes to go either to Heathrow or into Central London quite easily. GREAT PLACE!
Highly recommended accommodation. Well appointed, clean and value for money location in a quite residential area in a good part of South-West London. Cannot thank the owners enough for their hospitality and help during our 5 week stay. Went far beyond landlords responsibility and cared for our welfare during the stay.
We are in Barnes, an upmarket little community within 200 metres of the river Thames & 1.6 kms from Hammersmith which is a major urban transport hub. We are separated from Hammersmith by the river and by historic & beautiful Hammersmith Bridge.
Hammersmith has all tube lines, so getting to the centre is not a problem and doesn't take much time.
Barnes is peaceful and quiet with shops, cafes, pubs and a pond.
There is a bus outside the door of the flat to and from Hammersmith every 15 mins. Alternatively you can walk 6 minutes (500 meters) up the road to Hammersmith Bridge where there are buses every minute of the day.
We live on site - the flat is at the bottom of our garden beyond a pergola and trellising in a detached building with its own entrance to the street.
