Wendy worked in the Fashion Industry as a Fashion Buyer in London and around the world for over 20 years, moving on to interiors buying and interior design. Graham worked for the BBC as a Director of Photography and then freelance Film unit, so they bought this apartment for when they were working in London

Wendy Waghorn purchased this apartment in 2008

They both love this area, as Wendy owned a fabulous Houseboat about 200 yards up The River Thames,so when this property came up, beside the River and next door to Hampton Court, they jumped at it. Whats not too like!It is also a very old building steeped in history, yet it has been modernised in a contemporary way. Giving the best of both worlds, and a super power shower!

Sitting on the patio, enjoying the view of the River and the beautiful gardens with a glass of wine. Perfect.

Wonderfully-appointed apartment on the river

  • 5 of 5
A fantastic property on the river Thames very close to Hampton Court Palace.
We rented it as a base for visiting friends in the area.
Very convenient for London with fast trains taking only 33 minutes into Waterloo.
The apartment itself is bijoux, wonderfully appointed, has all mod cons, well-equipped kitchen, outdoor seating area, and ample space for a small family (we were one adult and two children).
The overall feel is of relaxed elegance. The secure parking, quiet situation, and proximity to the river are all big plus points.
From the beginning, the owner Wendy sent helpful and informative emails. She offered to arrange a driver, was flexible over our stay, and even allowed us very early access on our day of arrival as we landed from HK at 0430hrs! we were in the property by 9am. Important touches such as fresh flowers and some chocolates were very much appreciated.
We had a wonderful stay in this peaceful setting. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and have already recommended the property to family and friends.
Many thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, for your excellent review.
We were so glad we could get you and the girls in early after your Hong Kong arrival.
I have done that flight enough to know how "spacey" you feel after the flight, and it is great to arrive at your destination and get a hot shower and relax.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay, and especially you got our "relaxed elegance". That is a brilliant description. I like somewhere to look good, but to feel comfortable.
It is really kind of you to recommend us to your friends, and much appreciated.
We would love to have you stay again, when you get the chance.

Kind regards, Wendy

A fantastic apartment very close to Hampton Court

  • 5 of 5
This is a really lovely apartment which is furnished to a very high standard. It was extremely comfortable and very well equipped. It also has a really lovely private patio area looking onto the garden and river. Wendy provided excellent customer service too. We have already recommended this apartment to friends. Great location as well!

Well-appointment, very comfortable, great location

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 10 days at Rotary Court; the apartment was modern, stylish, clean, and very comfortable. The lovely landscaping and close proximity to the Thames was an extra treat. The location was perfect. With Hampton Court Palace (an extraordinary place!) and Bushy Park at the end of the street, fabulous shops and restaurants a few minutes’ walk over the bridge to East Moseley village, and the train station 10 minutes away, we were in the perfect place! We took the train to London a few times and also rented a car to visit Oxford, Cambridge, and The Cotswolds. Coming home to Rotary Court after a busy day of exploring was great. We could relax, freshen up, and go back out to enjoy dinner in town. We can’t say enough about Wendy; she is delightful. Her hospitality and helpfulness were much appreciated. She helped us navigate the area and also arranged our transportation from and to Heathrow with a driver who was not only punctual, but very pleasant. We had great chats!

We were pleasantly surprised by our accommodations and all the area has to offer. Although our trip was primarily to visit London, Hampton Court could be a destination of its own. We ended up spending a couple of full days exploring the town and still didn’t see everything. We definitely will return and stay at Rotary Court.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Christine and Jeff, for your very kind comments.We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, and enjoyed our close proximity to London, yet with our "village" location and abundance of quaint eating areas, beside the River, and the Palace.
We would love to welcome you back for your next visit.
Kind regards, Wendy.

Highly recommended. Lovely place and position.

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for a week. The apartment is convenient and well equipped. The position is excellent - the Thames is at the end of the garden, station close with half hourly service to Waterloo, which takes about 30 minutes.
Hampton Court palace is a short walk away, and is an excellent day out.
Also enjoyed Bushey park as an evening stroll, watching the deer.
Going into London you can get off at Vauxhall or Clapham if it suits you better but I recommend getting on at Waterloo with a bit of time to spare in order to get a seat. It isn't a problem going in as the train starts at Hampton Court.

There is a lovely walk along the Thames, past Hampton Court Palace, into Kingston upon Thames, and a bus back if you don't want to walk both ways.

There are restaurants and some interesting local shops close to the apartment too. To have parking was a bonus and a secured entrance was very reassuring.

A word from the wise, the toaster cooks perfect toast (no sign of burning), but take it out as soon as it pops or the smoke alarm goes off!

Would definitely use Rotary Court again. It is an ideal arrangement to see London or the southern suburbs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and your very good review.We are lucky to have such a unique position beside the River and the Palace, Aahh the dreaded smoke detector! Yes, as an apartment we have four smoke detectors, which can be over zealous, whilst cooking if the fan is not switched on. Don't worry it only lasts a couple of seconds!
We would be happy for you to return when you get the chance, as you are right there is so much to see in the area.
Many thanks, Wendy

Hampton Court Visit

  • 5 of 5
Rotary Court in Hampton Court was perfect for our visit and deserves top marks in all categories. The location is ideal with Hampton Court Palace just across the road and a nearby railway station with trains every thirty minutes to Waterloo in London, if you can bring yourself to leave your lovely surroundings. There are beautiful walks along the Thames and visiting Hampton Court Palace and its spectacular gardens after the tourists depart is a wonderful bonus. The apartment is small but very comfortable, immaculate, and extremely quiet. Wendy was the perfect hostess.

There is a bus stop by the building, and frequent double-decker buses travel through the suburbs to Heathrow. It takes about an hour, but if you have the time, it's an easy commute. Wendy also has a friend who is often available for private transport to the airport. Your stay will be trouble-free and memorable.
