We have spent most of our lives in the South West of England and now our children have flown the nest and come to London we have followed suit! Selling our business in the Westcountry was the start of an adventure for us - we found this beautiful flat and now spend our time in between London and Cornwall.

Francesca Bennett purchased this apartment in 2012

The location is so amazing you can hardly believe you are only 20 minutes from Central London and all its museums, culture, sights and shopping. The flat overlooks the River Thames from every window and the ever-changing views of the river are enchanting. There is always something to see whether you enjoy watching the boats or the variety of birds that may be seen. Historic Eel Pie Island is just over the water where music legends made their . names in the 60's and the area still has a variety of live music and arts events . Something for everyone!

The flat has a unique feel that transports you back to a genteel time of Englishness at its best. Fronting the river and watching the variety of boats passing by is a wonderful way to while away a few hours, after the bustle of life in London such a short distance away. The peaceful outlook is a welcome homecoming when you return from a full day taking in the sights of the wonderful City of London. great public transport links too!

Twickenham Apartment next to Richmond

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 07-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
The apartment had some modern elements, but was not "stunning". However, the view of the Thames from all apartment windows made up for any less modern elements and we had plenty of room. The wifi was efficient for work and the kitchen appliances were great. We were close to shops and public transportation, but the train's last stop from London was Richmond, where we picked up bus service. We spent many hours on public transportation getting to the sites we wanted to visit. If money is no object, a London apartment would be more convenient and less tiring at the end of the day. However, the upside to being outside the city was the quiet country feel of the neighborhood and local people who know the area. Because of them, we were able to find "Arthur's on the Green" in Twickenham, a little restaurant that was recommended to us. It turned out to be an easy walk from the apartment and the food was delicious! All in all, it was a restful place to stay.

Owner's Response: Oh dear, unfortunately you seem to have been catching the wrong train! There is indeed a very frequent direct train (not underground) from central London to Twickenham taking only 20 minutes, and it is only a short walk from Twickenham station to the apartment. As you say, you can take a tube to Richmond and then the bus but this is much less convenient. Still, I am glad you seem to have had a pleasant stay on the whole and enjoyed the peace that the apartment affords after a busy day in London.

Lovely flat with great location. Beautiful views of the river. Comfortable, smart furnishings, convenient to public transportation, restaurants. Had lovely late evening walks, and wine. Loved waking up with the sun shining through the open windows. We had super weather.

We very much enjoyed our stay in the apt in Twickenham. It is a very comfortable apartment and quite lovely to see the wildlife along the Thames and the rowers and boats - all from the living room or bedroom windows. We walked along the Thames into the center of Richmond - about a thirty minute beautiful walk. We enjoyed the restaurants in Twickenham on the cobblestone street which is part of the old town. There are several good restaurants and coffee shops to choose from and market vendors also. The apt is only a minute or two walk into town. Francesca met us at 9am since we had an early arrival into Heathrow Airport which was very kind of her and she was very helpful and pleasant to work with. We played tennis at a local club, visited London and very much enjoyed the area during our four day stay.

Perfect location

The flat was perfect. It had everything we needed for our visit. Twickenham was a marvelous place. Even on a rainy day we walked along the river and visited the White Swan Pub. Parking was available and important to us because we rent a car and visit friends nearby and play golf on nearby courses. When we went into London, the train station is a 10 minute walk. We also found a wonderful gym, Teddington pools 1.5 miles away. Highly recommend flat for a couple visiting the area.

Loved the River View

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised when we entered the flat. The unrestricted view of the Thames and all the action that takes place during the day makes this the perfect place to feel immersed in the local culture. The owners were there to meet us and show us around. Francesca was always available by phone or internet to answer any questions. The flat is well equipped to prepare meals including dinner. The large bedroom provides enough room to store clothes and suitcases. The lounge and seating for 4 allowed us to have guests for dinner. We stayed for a week and spent time exploring the high street, walking along the river, enjoying nearby neighbourhoods and visiting with friends and relatives. We have been to London many times and had no reason to travel into the city as there was enough to keep us busy close to the flat. On the Saturday there was a festival along the river walk below the flat and we could join in the fun. Twickenham Station is an easy walk for those who want to travel into London. I would recommend the flat to anyone who wants to enjoy life along the Thames and still have easy access to London.
