Why Val Metheringham chose Richmond & Kew

The cottage is located in one of the loveliest streets in the area and is surrounded by stunning eighteenth century architecture, including two houses with blue plaques. There is no through traffic and it is just a short walk to the river with lovely riverside walks. A twelve minute walk to Richmond Bridge and there is very good public transport. A tranquil setting, but within easy reach of shops, restaurants, theatres and cinemas and only 25 mins into the centre of London.

What makes this cottage unique

A beautiful and peaceful setting, but within easy reach of shops, restaurants and pubs and only 25 minutes to the hustle and bustle of Central London.

A pretty and secluded roof terrace to enjoy a drink, read a book, play a game of scrabble or just enjoy the sun.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I recently spent a very enjoyable short break in this delightful property, so much so, I thought I would like to write a review.

The cottage was really nice, very comfortable, extremely clean and well equipped, with a pretty roof terrace. The location was just perfect, very quiet, but near to all amenities. We were supplied with complimentary parking permits, which enabled us to park opposite the cottage for the entire stay, so we were able to use public transport to get around to see the sights.

Richmond is a lovely place with lots of interesting places to visit, we especially enjoyed Kew Gardens and were particularly lucky with the weather which was bright and sunny.

I think this cottage is a little gem and I look forward to making a return visit.

Even better the second time

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit and if anything we were more impressed. Val was very accommodating with our particular requests which was greatly appreciated. The location is ideal, and makes a perfect base to live like a local, which is always our goal. Exceedingly convenient to everything, yet perfectly tranquil. It’s a terrific property in a great spot, and it feels like home away from home without any effort. We look forward to returning.

Very good.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this property and in this neighbourhood. The property was clean and comfortable, and Val's instructions and suggestions were all very helpful (including her recommendations for places to eat.) One caution for children or anyone with mobility issues is that the stairs to the bedrooms are very steep. Shopping for essentials is a short walk away, and more shopping is available in the Twickenham business centre, reachable by bus or walking. Public transportation to Waterloo, Kew and Hampton Court are all convenient. There is also a bus to and from Heathrow, but for those who prefer a car service, follow Val's recommendation for Black and White Cars and Couriers.

Perfect cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect cottage for my short stay. Val answered all my questions quickly and offered tips on the best way to get there from the airport. So clean and tidy and comfortable! A park on one side and markets and stores on the other. A short walk to the river, many places to spend the day. Thank you Val for everything I would recommend the lovely cottage to anyone and hope to return myself.

Lovely Holiday Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely holiday cottage in August.

The cottage is Victorian and very pretty, but the interior is bright and modern and had everything we needed for our stay, plus a small secluded roof terrace.

The location is really great, very green and peaceful, but only a ten minute walk to Richmond.

We were worried about parking when we booked, but the owner very kindly sorted out parking permits to enable us to park opposite the cottage, so we could leave the car and use public transport for most of our stay.

Visiting Central London was easy taking the train to Waterloo in under half an hour, but also locally in and around Richmond there was lots to do and see.

We found the guests handbook very useful, full of information on places to visit, plus pubs, restaurants and shops.

We have no hesitation in recommending this property.

Great location and cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is small but has everything you need. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable bed. Only disadvantage is that loo is downstairs. All the houses in Montpelier Row are very attractive including the cottage. Location is near perfect - close to river, vast parks, buses and trains. You don't need a car to get round which is just as well because there's nowhere close by to park it during the day. This was a slight problem when we had friends visiting us in the day. We stayed 3 weeks overall and would definitely stay there again. Owner is very friendly and welcoming.
