We have stayed in this apartment on many occasions and it really does feel like a home from home. The place is always clean, well maintained and well stocked in terms of pots and pans, crockery, towels and bed linen etc. The apartment has all the creature comforts you could wish for, and has plenty of space for a family without feeling like you are on top of each other. There is even a well stocked library for those who like to read on vacation. The roof terrace is an added bonus, and great for sitting out and relaxing on a warm summer evening.
Vanessa is absolutely fabulous and always there to greet us when we arrive at the apartment, and also responds very quickly to any queries we may have?
There are lots of local shops, restaurants/takeaways all within walking distance, and there is a very handy supermarket right next door to the apartment block. There are two parks that can be easily reached on foot (Lammas Park and Walpole Park), both of which are family friendly.
The apartment comes with parking but given the location a car really isn't necessary. The apartment is a one minute walk to Northfields Tube Station, which is on the Piccadilly line, perfect for reaching Heathrow Airport or getting into Central London. The E2/3 bus stops are located very close by, giving you access to Ealing Broadway or Chiswick, and the 65 bus can be caught from South Ealing Road and this takes you to Kew Gardens, Richmond and Kingston.
We always enjoy our stay at Derwent Yard and it truly does feel like we are at home, rather than on vacation. We can't wait until our next stay later in the year.
We would definitely recommend this apartment to family and friends if they were planning a vacation in London.
