About the property

1 Bedroom apartment, Sleeps 4

Fantastic 1 bedroom apartment on a quiet street in Kew. This is a Victorian one bedroom property in central Kew Gardens completely modernised in 2013 to the highest standard.

It is full of original features with antique marble fireplaces in both the sitting room and the bedroom. The modern kitchen/breakfast room has granite work surfaces and french doors opening onto a small private outdoor area. The walk-in wet room is tiled in Italian stone and has underfloor heating.

Overall it is a first class property in the centre of Kew with two grocery stores (one of which also bakes its own bread and has the best fresh baked pain au chocolat in Kew!), a cafe and restaurants within a two minute walk.


The property is a five minute walk from Kew Gardens tube station and Kew Gardens British Rail overland train station. Immediately outside the property is a bus stop which will take you to Richmond in 5 minutes, Chiswick in 10 minutes or Hammersmith in 20 minutes.


Within a 5 minute walk is the Victoria Gate entrance to Kew Botanical Gardens, UNESCO world heritage site.

Kew Gardens Village is also a five minute walk where you will find a StarBucks, The Glass House (a MIchelin starred restaurant), and a Tesco supermarket, and various smaller cafes, tea shops, restaurants and gift shops.

Recommended restaurants within a 10 minute walk include the following;

RaRa's (2 minute walk): Right over the road is RaRa's - delicious outstanding Nepalese restaurant in a smart modern restaurant - or you can order food to take away.

Montien (4 minute walk) a small privately owned Thai restaurant

The Glass House (5 minute walk) a outstanding fine dining Michelin starred restaurant

Ma Cuisine (5 minutes) an authentic french bistro serving delicious food

Pizza Express (5 minutes) good pizza restaurant or take-away

Why Christopher Barnard chose Chiswick

This property is a beautifully renovated flat, with lots of character, in a REALLY convenient location. The nearest shops and restaurants are a two minute walk away, Kew Parade which is a very cute, old fashioned shopping parade, containing over 30 shops, cafes and restaurants, is a five minute walk away.

Kew Gardens tube station and Overground station is a five minute walk which will you with Central London in 25 minutes or Covent Garden in 35 minutes.

The area of Kew Gardens is in West London and is regarded as one of the nicest, prettiest and most genteel.

There are plenty of tourist attractions nearby including: Kew Botanical Gardens, The National Archieves, Syon Park, Chiswick House and Park, The River Thames (you can walk along the tow path or take a boat ride along the river), Hampton Court Palace, Ham House (view the house or watch the Polo matches there in the summer) and Richmond Park the largest park in any European captial city.

Returning visitor who loves this property

  • 5 of 5

This was a return trip to the garden flat at Kew and was like coming home. All the things that I liked about this property last time made it an easy choice and as it was arranged at very short notice. It was lucky that we found it available. All the comforts of home, great village atmosphere and of course the hands on attention from our host, Chris. Thank you chris and Ailsa for your hospitality and we’ll see you again soon.

Charming flat, lovely spot, kind and thoughtfull hosts: perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This is my second visit to this flat, both times for work; I loved the tranquility of the flat and thoughtful touches of the hosts first time round and was delighted to be back to exoerience the great spot, wonderful hosts, and lovely home from home: a perfect retreat at the end of a busy day; so much better than a hotel. I will be back, hopefully for leisure next time, when I'd be very happy to curl up in the very comfy bed all weekend and read my way through their library. Thank you very much Chris and Ailsa for another lovely stay.

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in this charming flat for four nights last fall, we decided to return for several nights this year. It was a delight to be back--what a comfortable place on a pleasant street. It is outside the hustle and bustle of London, but the city is still easily accessible via public transit. It is also easy to get to the airport from this location, via public transit, cab, or Uber.

We took advantage of the location to explore several things in the area, and enjoyed returning to some favorite restaurants on the street. It's just a short walk to several grocery stores.

We recommend this flat highly, and will definitely return. Thanks, Christopher, for being such an attentive host and offering such excellent accommodation!

Christopher wa very helpful with our planning the trip and arranged a pick-up at the airport for us. The apartment is conveniently located with restaurants and transportation options very handy. It has everything needed for a comfortable stay and we really enjoyed living in Kew, lots to explore and easy access to many of the places we wanted to visit.
