My family and I stumbled across Chiswick over 2 years ago and little did we know we were finding ourselves in one of the most beautiful and magical parts of London. We are spoilt for choice with the Thames River and all it has to offer just nearby, Chiswick House and it's amazing garden and cafe to enjoy throughout the year, the High Road with all the great shops and restaurants just down the street and London a mere 20 minutes away. We love the outdoors, therefore having the Thames River just 5 minutes down the road we find ourselves running or bike riding along the river most weekends with our two kids. We too are avid travellers and love to explore the unknown. We go out of our way to find neighbourhoods that may not be on the tourist trail but allow us to pretend for a couple of days, a week or more that we too are a local and that is what we hope The Gatehouse offers you on your short stay in London.
My family and I adore travelling, and we are very particular about the places we choose to rest our heads and call home, when we are away from home. It has always been a dream of mine to create a space that I can share with others, knowing that it has all the little details that guests should be able to enjoy when they area away from home! The Gatehouse is a calming space for those who are on business and want more than a hotel; it is large enough for a small family without feeling like everyone is living on top of each other, and it offers the charm for any couple wanting a romantic getaway…it truly is a home for everyone!
The location of The Gatehouse is what makes it so magical. To be nestled in a Heritage House Gardens, whilst being so close to Central London is a truly unique experience. Whilst being close to London, The Gatehouse also offers easy access to some fantastic day trips outside of London, such as Windsor Castle (25 minutes away by car), The Cotswolds (1hr 20 min away by car) or Oxford (1hr away by car or 1hr away by train) just to name a few.
I stayed in Caroline's apartment with my mum, my husband and our 5 year old girl. We picked this place because we have friends in Chiswick and wanted to be near them.
The flat is great! Clean, comfortable and has everything one might need. Caroline was very kind and non-intrusive; provided very clear instructions on how to get there and checked that we had everything we needed.
I would definitely stay there again.
This Flat is really nice, clean and comfortable... Our bed was very comfortable. The place was very clean upon arrival (this is most important to us). The Manager, Caroline, was so kind and easy to work with. The kitchen was well supplied and everything worked well. We were able to wash some clothes in the little washing machine so when we left we had some nice clean clothes! The flat is located about a 10 minute walk to the Chiswick High Rd. where there a so many wonderful restaurants, pubs and stores. Pick up some groceries at M & S. Great selection of everything you need! IF it is late the Tesco is open till midnight for that quick pick up of milk and eggs! It is about 15-20 minutes to walk to the Turnham Green Station that will take you EASILY into London to see the sites. There is a great garden lawn to look out on while sipping you coffee or tea in the morning and planning your day.
A few things to consider...it is located near a busy road so you will hear a bit of road noise not terrible in any way but noticeable for sure if your sensitive to that. You have to walk up two flights of stairs to get to the front door, which is no big deal unless you have any physical problems.
To sum it up we loved this flat. It is as the pictures show and you cannot beat the location to have a safe and cute neighborhood to come home to after being in busy London site seeing all day. We will be back!
We really enjoyed our four days in Caroline's apartment. The rooms were clean and beds delicious. The location was tops - lovely Cheswick streets and an easy walk to underground or nearby restaurants (highly recommend the Black Lion pub on the Thames). We explored the city daily and came back to the peace and quiet of the apartment's surrounding gardens and park. A perfect combination of frantic London and charming Cheswick. Would easily stay again!
close to Chiswick high street and only 20 mins from central London by. Car. Easy access to public transport. Definitely will stay here next time I come to London. Well suited for families.
This flat was perfect for our family of four (two teenage daughters). The description matches the flat 100%. Well supplied kitchen and two bathrooms with all modern fixtures. Beds were very comfortable and we had a lovely view of the backyard area. It was super quiet day and night. The neighborhood offers countless little shops and restaurants as well as several very nice places to buy groceries. Train station is about 3/4 of a mile away, easy and safe walk. Owner was lovely to do business with and checked in on us to make sure we were comfortable and settled. Five stars!!!!!
This is a very well furnished apartment , with an appealing layout and excellent appliances so we felt 'at home' immediately. This was reinforced by Caroline's warm welcome and she continued to impress us with her gracious and rapid responses to any questions or requests throughout our two stays. Set in beautiful grounds yet close to major roads and the Tube the location is made near perfect by its proximity to Chiswick High Road which, with the surrounding streets provides a mix of shops, eateries and services that no doubt accounts for the popularity of this area. It's an outstanding package and we certainly intend to return.
The Neighbourhood: We believe that The Gatehouse Apartment is in one of the best areas in London. It is nestled in Chiswick House & Gardens, a heritage site that is regarded as one of the finest in England, therefore making your stay a truly unique experience. A 5 minute walk from the apartment can lead you to: The Thames River, where you can go for a lovely stroll or jog along the paved path and stop in at one of the old riverside pubs; Chiswick High Road, which is jam packed with great restaurants and shopping; Hogarth House, which is the former residence of the 18th-century English artist William Hogarth and of course easy access to Central London via the tube, overground and bus.
