I fell in love Southlodge. It is so full of character and history I loved the high ceilings and large windows, also the privacy of the courtyard garden. I lived here for 5 years and couldn't bear to sell it when I had to move. It is my vacation home also and I try to visit at least 4 times a year
Beautifully furnished with high end furniture and fittings. White company bedding, Apple computer and TV. Fluffy white towels and robes. Fresh flowers and a bottle of wine free with every stay. A real home away from home
We really enjoyed our week at 1A Southlodge.
We were met on time by the owner’s representative and welcomed into a very clean apartment full of fresh flowers and a bottle of wine!
Our main aim was to relax for a week and we were able to do that within quiet and peaceful surroundings with the added bonus of the small garden area perfect for a late afternoon drink.
We used the bus stop to Richmond or Kingston (2 minutes away) to go shopping a couple of times even though we had our car. Car parking is on the road but there was always space at all times of day.
We found the apartment ideal for visiting the historic Ham House (short walk) and Hampton Court Palace (short drive) as well as Petersham Nurseries (short walk) and of course, Richmond Park.
The computer/internet access was extremely useful in planning our days out and finding the best coffee shops!!
We were very pleased, overall, with our choice of what is really a country location with good access to surrounding amenities and also central London via train. In addition our deposit was returned within a week of our return home.

Everything was wonderful with the apartment. We were very pleased to have been personally greeted and shown the workings of the apartment which was enormously helpful as things like underfloor heating and heated towel racks may have gone unnoticed. the owner was kind enough to have provided flowers, wine and all the makings for a cup of tea (which was in our hands within 10 minutes of arrival). As our visit was early Spring, the daffodils came into full bloom and the garden came alive - it was extremely cold outside so we had time to enjoy the apartment sitting by the fire and looking out to the garden - very peaceful. We traveled with two older ladies (over 80) who were very comfortable and we found the convenience of the location excellent with buses and a pub on the corner. The owner has taken great care in the decor and comfort of this apartment and I would highly recommend it as a romantic get-away.
Extremely nice apartment. We've had an amazing time. Beautiful neighbourhood, the green, the park, Richmond and a nice pub just around the corner. The apartment is large, convenient and has all the facilities you need. The only small minus we experienced was that the Wi-Fi is not always stable. But we recommend this apartment to all who wants to have a nice and comfortable stay.
We had a very nice stay at this appartment. We were welcomed and introduced to the propery and the property listing is very accurate. It has everything you need to feel at home. The location is very good - in a pleasant and peaceful area with excellent acces to Richmond by bus and a nice pub within minutes. We would definately recommend it and stay here again ourselves.
This was one of the most beautiful holiday location we ever had.
The aera was terrific, the flat luxury, looovly, clean, well- maintained. There were more than descriped (wash machine, dryer...) You can feel like home.
The pub is not far away...the bus station to Richmond too (2 min). The trip by bus to the station in Richmond requires 10- 15 min.
Marion was very helpfully.
Only- the flat was difficult to find...
We had a wonderful stay at Marion's beautiful Ham retreat. It is in the most lovely location, and is well equipped with everything we needed for our home-away-from-home. Would stay again.
Its a beautiful house everything well placed with nice and well thought decoration. You fell like home but at the same time in a very special place.
Everything is very modern, kitchen fully equiped, excellent TV system, you even had a computer for the kids,bathroom spacious and nice shower.
For us best place was the small and charming little garden were evening we made a nice BBQ with our kids.
