LOCATION. The saying goes that if you move to Barnes you never leave!! which probably explains why there are so many estate agents in the area. The Coach house is situated in Barnes South West London and undoubtedly one of the most prestigious addresses for young professional families including many Tv and film stars residing in the leafy quiet lanes and yet so close to the centre of London which is about a 15 minute tube ride from Hammersmith Underground station.
It is called Barnes village because it has a many small quaint antique shops, old pubs and a lovely village pond/green. Also called nappy valley becuase of the amount of babies and prams !! There is plenty to do if you wish to walk along the river into the centre of Barnes village or visit the Barnes Wetland Wildlife Centre. There are public tennis courts and a footablll pitch as well as a cricket green. This a very good location if you are visiting WIMBLEDON TENNIS which is approximately 3 miles away. There are italian ,french ,indian restaurants. and 1 amazing gastro pub called the Sun Inn overlooking the Pond and the Green. Please view the photos of the area you will not be disappointed!

The beds were good, and were changed in one week. Location good.
Attention to detail lacking.
The very small (plasma?) TV did not work for the 1st 7 days, despite our telling the person in charge.
The heating was preset, so we were very cold. No instructions left to tell where or how to adjust heating. 'Maid' did not know, either.
Pots were unsavoury, due to lining scratched away completely. In fact all kitchen equipment seemed to be someone else's cast offs. The rental should be enough to afford new pots! Thus we had an expensive 12 days, needing to eat out every night.
There was no cleaning done in 12 days. We needed to ask the 'maid' to take the kitchen rubbish away and change the towels after 7 days. She only came to change the sheets.
No clothes washing facilities.
Insisted on cash payment.
We are seasoned world travelers, and were not impressed by these oversights.
THIS IS A LOVELY COACH HOUSE IN A VERY NICE NEIGHBORHOOD. I WAS IN LONDON DOING RESEARCH AT THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES IN KEW AND IT WAS A PERFECT LOCATION. THE BUS PASSES RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE AND IS A HAIL AND RIDE SO IT IS EASY TO CATCH. THE HOME IS VERY NICELY DECORATED AND VERY COMFORTABLE. JILLY WAS SO HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY. SHE HELPED US WITH LAUNDRY AND WAS AVAILABLE TO ANSWER ALL OF OUR QUESTIONS.
THE LOCATION IS AMAZING IT IS EASY TO GET TO HAMMERSMITH STATION, SHOPPING, AND NUMEROUS RESTAURANTS. WE DID NOT HAVE A CAR AND IT WAS NOT A PROBLEM AT ALL!
We rented the above property for a long weekend. We were warmly welcomed into a compact, comfortable apartment where we could relax, eat and sleep after our days out in London and the SW area. The lounge was "extended" by a small formal courtyard and extensive garden. The facilities and furnishings were all of a good standard and everything we needed for our stay was provided. The bedrooms were small but had more than adequate storage and very comfortable double beds. There was always plenty of hot water and some "basics" in the kitchen for when we arrived.
Local shops, restaurants and a pub were easily reached on foot and buses in the area took one in all directions.
We would not hesitate to come again and recommend it particularly to those who don't have to worry about young children and just want to relax in calm and well appointed surroundings.
We stayed in this apartment for 10 days in November 2010. Jilly made us feel comfortable and welcome immediately upon arrival. The apartment was clean and located at a beautiful residential area. It's only 10-15 mins walk away from the Tube station, which easily took us to Central London (Hammersmith is on the Piccadilly line) - close to the river. We really appreciated the maid's service (personal laundry & towels). During our stay, the TV was upgraded - replaced by a small flat-screen TV. Obviously, the owner has improved the facilities since our stay (eg. internet access is now provided).
Das Apartment war sauber und ordentlich. Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen. Wir werden es weiter empfehlen.

In the other direction there is Richmond a very elegant Georgian town about 2 miles away. To get into Central London you take the Piccadilly line from Hammersmith which is about an eight minute walk from the property This takes you into Central London, which stops at Kensington, Knights bridge Earls Court Piccadilly Circus and Convent Garden in about 20 minutes.
