Chiswick Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom apartment, Sleeps 4

Fantastic 1 bedroom apartment on a quiet street in Kew. This is a Victorian one bedroom property in central Kew Gardens completely modernised in 2013 to the highest standard.

It is full of original features with antique marble fireplaces in both the sitting room and the bedroom. The modern kitchen/breakfast room has granite work surfaces and french doors opening onto a small private outdoor area. The walk-in wet room is tiled in Italian stone and has underfloor heating.

Overall it is a first class property in the centre of Kew with two grocery stores (one of which also bakes its own bread and has the best fresh baked pain au chocolat in Kew!), a cafe and restaurants within a two minute walk.


The property is a five minute walk from Kew Gardens tube station and Kew Gardens British Rail overland train station. Immediately outside the property is a bus stop which will take you to Richmond in 5 minutes, Chiswick in 10 minutes or Hammersmith in 20 minutes.


Within a 5 minute walk is the Victoria Gate entrance to Kew Botanical Gardens, UNESCO world heritage site.

Kew Gardens Village is also a five minute walk where you will find a StarBucks, The Glass House (a MIchelin starred restaurant), and a Tesco supermarket, and various smaller cafes, tea shops, restaurants and gift shops.

Recommended restaurants within a 10 minute walk include the following;

RaRa's (2 minute walk): Right over the road is RaRa's - delicious outstanding Nepalese restaurant in a smart modern restaurant - or you can order food to take away.

Montien (4 minute walk) a small privately owned Thai restaurant

The Glass House (5 minute walk) a outstanding fine dining Michelin starred restaurant

Ma Cuisine (5 minutes) an authentic french bistro serving delicious food

Pizza Express (5 minutes) good pizza restaurant or take-away

Why Christopher Barnard chose London

This property is a beautifully renovated flat, with lots of character, in a REALLY convenient location. The nearest shops and restaurants are a two minute walk away, Kew Parade which is a very cute, old fashioned shopping parade, containing over 30 shops, cafes and restaurants, is a five minute walk away.

Kew Gardens tube station and Overground station is a five minute walk which will you with Central London in 25 minutes or Covent Garden in 35 minutes.

The area of Kew Gardens is in West London and is regarded as one of the nicest, prettiest and most genteel.

There are plenty of tourist attractions nearby including: Kew Botanical Gardens, The National Archieves, Syon Park, Chiswick House and Park, The River Thames (you can walk along the tow path or take a boat ride along the river), Hampton Court Palace, Ham House (view the house or watch the Polo matches there in the summer) and Richmond Park the largest park in any European captial city.

Exemplary apartment in favoured location, excellent value, with great communication with owner.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is superb – simply top class. I’ve stayed in many apartments in the West London area and I’ll be coming back to this one on my next trip. It feels like it is my own home – the atmosphere is very relaxing and you can half-forget that you don’t own it! So comfortable, great furnishings, everything in the right place. The front garden is beautiful to look out on through the living room windows. It’s quiet too – being on the ground floor it is rather insulated from the sounds of the city. Calm, peaceful and simply wonderful. The booking process with Christopher was smooth and easy, and accessing the apartment for the first time (keys etc) was very straightforward. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and I will be back for sure! Thanks again Chris!

I stayed for two nights in this apartment- everything was as described. The owner was friendly and accomodating, the apartment itself very comfortable. No hesitation in recommending it.

A wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

This flat was in a perfect location for us, about four blocks from Kew Village, and only 2 blocks from our daughter's house. Christopher was the perfect host with great communication both before, during and after our stay. The flat was perfect for a couple, very comfortable and warm enough.

There were modern appliances (dishwasher, washer/dryer) at our disposal, lots of towels, and, the bedroom had a power strip (not sure what that is called in England), so we were able to charge all our various devices.

And in addition, in a really nice touch for an arrival on 12/22, a decorated small Christmas tree. What a nice touch.

Beautiful apartment in the heart of Kew

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a short stay at this lovely apartment. The owner was very communicative which ensured our stay ran smoothly.

The apartment is located just a short walk from Kew village with a few boutique shops, cafes and even a Michelin-starred restaurant.

It is then a further short walk to the Victoria Gate entrance of Kew Gardens. My sister lives here so it was useful to be so close, but equally if you were visiting Kew or even sight-seeing in London, the flat is very central and well-connected with transport links. We drove from Manchester in just 3.5 hours and it's a short drive from M4 J2. Literally straight off the motorway and you're there.

We were visiting Christmas at Kew Gardens (which was spectacular) and also took advantage of Kew Sparkle the night before which is a local celebration in the village with mulled wine, carol singers and market stalls.

The apartment was clean and spacious. Even though the cost worked out more expensive than staying in the nearby hotel, for us having the extra space was invaluable. The super comfortable lounge meant we could stay up and watch a film while our young son slept in the bedroom and the kitchen was perfect for family meals. Which don't get chance to sit and eat together much so this was particularly special.

Staying here is like living as a local and as it is such a desirable location this is a real treat! We would definitely return if Christopher would have us. It's not easy travelling with a family but having this apartment made it such a nicer experience. Would highly recommend.

We are a family with 2 young children and the apartment was perfect for our stay. The decor is tasteful and elegant, the bedroom is quiet and comfortable, the kitchen is well laid out, and the bathroom has a walk-in shower and underfloor heating! It is just a short walk to Kew Gardens and to the Underground station with its parade of shops, bars and restaurants.

Christopher was a very helpful host and he provided us with parking vouchers for the street. We certainly hope to stay again.

Wonderful Kew Gardens Location

  • 4 of 5

Nice comfortable neighborhood in Kew Gardens. Close to the Train station, restaurants and shops. Nice ground level apartment. A little dated with minor upgrades needed, but everything worked out well. For my wife and I, this is a keeper. Far enough from the hustle and bustle of London for peace and quiet, but close enough by public train to enjoy the attractions of London. Save your money and the hastle of driving a rental car. Get Oyster cards for your family members and make getting around in London enjoyable.
