Why marion mitchell chose Richmond & Kew

I fell in love Southlodge. It is so full of character and history I loved the high ceilings and large windows, also the privacy of the courtyard garden. I lived here for 5 years and couldn't bear to sell it when I had to move. It is my vacation home also and I try to visit at least 4 times a year

What makes this apartment unique

Beautifully furnished with high end furniture and fittings. White company bedding, Apple computer and TV. Fluffy white towels and robes. Fresh flowers and a bottle of wine free with every stay. A real home away from home

Guestbook comments from the owner

1A Southlodge





We really enjoyed our week at 1A Southlodge.



We were met on time by the owner’s representative and welcomed into a very clean apartment full of fresh flowers and a bottle of wine!



Our main aim was to relax for a week and we were able to do that within quiet and peaceful surroundings with the added bonus of the small garden area perfect for a late afternoon drink.



We used the bus stop to Richmond or Kingston (2 minutes away) to go shopping a couple of times even though we had our car. Car parking is on the road but there was always space at all times of day.



We found the apartment ideal for visiting the historic Ham House (short walk) and Hampton Court Palace (short drive) as well as Petersham Nurseries (short walk) and of course, Richmond Park.



The computer/internet access was extremely useful in planning our days out and finding the best coffee shops!!



We were very pleased, overall, with our choice of what is really a country location with good access to surrounding amenities and also central London via train. In addition our deposit was returned within a week of our return home.

Nearly perfect

  • 5 out of 5
This was one of the most beautiful holiday location we ever had.
The aera was terrific, the flat luxury, looovly, clean, well- maintained. There were more than descriped (wash machine, dryer...) You can feel like home.
The pub is not far away...the bus station to Richmond too (2 min). The trip by bus to the station in Richmond requires 10- 15 min.
Marion was very helpfully.
Only- the flat was difficult to find...

We had a wonderful stay at Marion's beautiful Ham retreat. It is in the most lovely location, and is well equipped with everything we needed for our home-away-from-home. Would stay again.

A delightful apartment in the heart of Ham Common

  • 5 out of 5
Our family (incl. 2 daughters of 6 and 9) stayed in Marion's flat for 3 weeks in June and had a wonderful stay. The apartment was just as described and very clean. Some wine, tea and other basic foods/commodities had thoughtfully been left for us and anything we could possibly need for a long family stay was available. It felt as though we had just come to stay at a welcoming friend's house rather than in one of those soulless short term rental properties. The location was just perfect for us, in the heart of Ham Common within short walk to Petersham and slightly longer but delightful walk to Richmond alongside the Thames river. The bus stop was very close by and the ride to Richmond a 10mn hop. The apartment was very quiet and away from any traffic noise (pretty rare in London!). We lucked out with amazing weather for the entire stay. There is plenty to do around Richmond, trips on the river, excellent shopping and extraordinary variety of restaurants not to mention the rest of London which can be quickly accessed from Richmond by train or underground. While I was there for work, my family were able to go out every day and an amazing time. Marion was very helpful and responded to any communications swiftly and the weekly cleaning service was greatly appreciated. We came away enchanted by our stay and hoping to come back one day. Highly recommended!

Wonderful stay in beautiful apartment.

  • 5 out of 5
A beautiful apartment, extremely comfortable with a charming patio garden.

Marion has thought of everything that you could possibly need to make your stay as easy as possible.

We stayed primarily for a very special family occasion, my daughters wedding. Marion was very helpful in allowing her to leave from the apartment on the day of the wedding.

The location is superb, just slightly off Ham Common (2 mins walk). The Common and surrounding area is beautiful and the bus into Richmond and or Kingston is 2 mins away as well, making travel into Central London via Richmond very easy on public transport. There is a small parade of shops within 5 mins walk for basic needs too.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.

A tranquil and very convenient apartment

  • 5 out of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is a marvelous space and we were very comfortable, rain or shine. We did get quite a bit of the former, but it was a good place to be when we had to stay indoors! The location is fantastic as well. We managed to move between Richmond, Kingston, Ham, Hampton Court, Kew and central London very easily with the excellent public transit system -- that was a treat for us coming from a land with comparatively minimal public transit. Diane helped us get settled and gave us a fine welcome. All in all, we had an excellent two weeks!

Great shopping in historic market town of Kingston: We are also 2 kilometres from the historic market town of Kingston upon Thames with its excellent shopping centre and rich variety of attractions on its doorstep including two Royal Parks (Richmond and Bushy) and numerous historic houses and gardens. There are also three theme parks, Chessington World of Adventures, Thorpe Park and Legoland within less than an hour’s drive.
