Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in Chiswick - Parade View

Light and spacious apartment. Excellent transport links. Free high speed WiFi

This Victorian apartment in the heart of London's historic Kew Village is 2 Minutes from Kew Gardens

-Underground and Overland trains (metro/subway) are 100 metres away, and buses to Central, North and West London are just around the corner.

-The apartment also has super-fast (fibre optic), unlimited internet at no extra cost.

-Enjoy a village atmosphere with local shops, restaurants and pubs with excellent transport links to all the main tourist attractions.

-Family size (200 sq m) with original features and high ceilings, the apartment forms part of a Victorian Parade in Kew Village, minutes away from Kew's Royal Botanical Gardens and the National Archives (public records office).

-The accommodation comprises 3 large double bedrooms, with a playroom on the top floor serving as a 4th double bedroom when required. Two further bathrooms and large double aspect lounge and dining room make this an ideal property for families, groups or corporate lets.

- A front balcony and large sash windows offer elevated views of the village while the large, well-equipped kitchen has French doors onto a sunny south facing balcony.

-Kew Retail Park: Kew Retail Park is a 10 minute walk from the property. Numerous retail outlets include Mothercare, Marks and Spencer, GAP, Next, TK Max, and Boots.

-Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, 200 metre walk: A World Heritage Site, the Gardens cover over 300 acres (120ha) of land and splendid glasshouses contain over 40,000 species of plant life and 9,000 trees. Kew is not only a beautiful place to visit but functions as a botanical research centre and maintains the largest plant collection in the world. We love these gardens and go almost daily as they are such a short walk away. We recommend that if you plan to visit more than three times during your stay you buy an annual pass, costing less than the price of three visits. In December and January an ice skating rink is open in front of the Temperate House and in July a series of summer swing outdoor concerts are held in the evenings followed by spectacular fireworks displays.

-Kew Gardens Station: This is the attractive main station for visitors to Kew Gardens, as well as serving the well-to-do suburbs of Kew itself, and the National Archive 10 minutes walk away. It is served by both the Richmond branch of the District Line and the North London Line, now called the London Overground.

-Kew is located in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. The River Thames runs through the heart of the borough for 21 miles linking Hampton Court Palace, Richmond town centre and Kew Gardens with central London. The river is a great way to see many of the attractions in the area including Marble Hill House, Ham House and Hampton Court Palace, or head east to Westminster, the Tower of London and Greenwich.

-Whether you like history & heritage, dining, shopping and theatre, walking, playing about on the river, or watching world class sport, Richmond upon Thames has something for everyone.

Why Libby Mitchell chose London

For me Kew is a very special part of London. It combines that very English village feeling with a European town square atmosphere. Great to have access to Kew Gardens and station, the Thames river, plenty of English pubs and restuarants, coffee shops, wine shops and mini supermarket, all just steps away.

What makes this apartment unique

It's always great at any time of day to sit outside on the balcony overlooking the village with a cup of tea, and watch the world going by.

We just got home from our trip to London. I cannot speak highly enough about the location of this property. We have been to London three times before this trip and each time we say that the area we found is our favorite. This time, however, we really found a gem of a spot. We traveled to London this time with my 85 year old mother. The proximity to the the station, restaurants, Tesco, and Sunday market helped this flat win the spot for best-ever London rental for us. It is quite large was probably too big for our party of 5 (since the youngest wanted to sleep with Grandma) but was extremely clean and homey. There is a lovely balcony to sit on and watch the evening shoppers. The couches aren't super comfortable but, you aren't sitting on them much anyway. I will definitely look to book this apartment again when we return to London.

Excellent, home from home, spotlessly clean and roomy, we loved Libby's flat , great location

  • 5 of 5

The flat has a lovely warm feel to it, plenty of space ( there were 8 of us), spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds and relaxing living areas and we absolutely loved the two balconies, where we sat out and people gazed, we would definitely like to revisit.

Thank you Libby

Mary

Happy to stay at Libby's flat in Kew for the fourth time

  • 4 of 5

We have booked this flat in Station parade for the fourth time to say with a group of friends. The flat is perfect for a group and has everything that one needs. The location with shops and the underground makes living there very comfortable. We would throughly recommend it. Thank you Libby we will be back again soon I hope.

Wonderful Kew!

  • 5 of 5

Only wish we had more time to stay in Kew. We just love the village here, and with the Gardens so close-by, it's ideal. We are a family of 5 and VERY comfortably enjoyed the house, Libby. This is our 2nd visit, and we hope one day we might return yet again. Thanks for answering questions when we had them. Cheers!

Delightful property in beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this delightful home with its distinctive layout. It was plenty of room for our group of 4 and could easily accommodate more. The area is wonderful, with nice restaurants nearby and easy grocery shopping just around the corner. The Kew Underground stop is only a five-minute walk or so, so the location is not as remote to the city center as it might seem. The owner was very helpful, including being willing to send a valuable item back to us that we had accidentally left behind. It would be great fun to stay here again.

Definitely lovely

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay in this lovely flat for our mid term family get-together this year again and the charm of Kew Village operated like the first time. Getting back home to this comfy flat, just minutes from the tube station at the end of each day in central London was always a pleasure in itself. We very much enjoyed our aperitifs on the balcony overlooking Station Parade. With its large lounge-dining room and bedrooms on different levels, the flat feels quite spacious even for our family of 10, and we were able to enjoy great birthday meals together as well as to find a quiet bubble for everyone whenever we felt like it. I definitely recommend Libby's place to anyone looking for holiday accommodation with charm and character.

Notes:
Parade View is a short walk to Restaurants, English Pubs, Coffee shops including Starbucks, Pizza Express, supermarket, Metro/ Underground, Kew Gardens and the Thames River. Kew is one Metro stop each way from the wonderful high streets of Richmond and Chiswick, with their great shops. There are also some delightful restaurants down Sandycombe Road, a 200 metre walk from the village. Be sure to visit Kew Gardens during your stay. For families with young children, Climbers and Creepers' is the ideal spot. For older children and located outside Climbers and Creepers you'll find Treehouse Towers. Kids can climb up ladders, clamber across rope bridges and slide their way down from the three towers. Each tower varies in height, and as children scale between them they’ll find each one more of a challenge.
