About the property

3 bedroom house in a fantastic location moments from Hampton Court Palace

Fabulous light and spacious family home on a quiet tree lined street backing on to Molesey Heath and with direct access to the pretty River Mole that runs through Surrey.

Perfect for families & groups planning a visit to Hampton Court Palace and London. Cosy in winter and great for entertaining and families in summer. Bright sunny family kitchen with lovely direct south facing decked area and mature and very private garden. The neighbourhood is very tranquil and scenic. The garden backs on to the river and Molesey Heath which is a nature lovers paradise. It's also one of the best areas in the whole of greater London, if not the best, for dog lovers! Amazing parks and river walks on the doorstep. You're also only a short stroll from great cafes, restaurants, quirky antique shops and of course the famous palace and train station with direct trains in to Waterloo in 35 mins. It really is the best of both worlds! House is well equipped with all mod cons and Sky HD TV in lounge and kitchen. House also has high speed Fibre optic broadband.

In terms of transport it's a 15-20 minute walk to Hampton Court (London zone 6) train station or a £5 taxi ride. There are also local buses right outside the house that go to the station and Kingston or Richmond. 35 minutes from Central London with direct train to Waterloo.

About Oliver

I work in media and events and as such travel an awful lot but i always love coming back to this area. I chose it because you can get in to central London in just over half an hour from Hampton Court and you have the buzz of the shops and restaurants near the palace, but you also have the great parks and river walks. It really is the best of both worlds.

Oliver purchased this house in 2012

Why Oliver chose West Molesey

Very close to Heathrow and central London but bordering picturesque Surrey and if you want to go to the beach in Brighton you are only a short drive away through amazing Surrey and Sussex villages. The house is a lovely 1930's conversion with all the charm of a period property but a fantastic modern south facing kitchen and garden.

What makes this house unique

Great decked area where you can fling open the kitchen doors, put on some music and sit in the incredibly quiet garden. With nobody overlooking you and only the river and nature reserve for miles you really wouldn't know you were so close to London.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and well functioning home. The lounge and living areas were very good and a great bathroom with two toilets helpful for or five person family. The local park is also great and we enjoyed the local pub and Tesco. No issues to report although families should know that it is either a bus trip or 20 minute walk to Hampton Court. If we visit this area again then we would like to stay here

A peaceful retreat close to London

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our five-day tour of London and vicinity. The house is only minutes away from Hampton Court Palace, which we toured on two days using our Historic Royal Palaces membership pass. The other three days of our stay we went into London, an easy commute on the train (the train station is right next to Hampton Court, so again, just a couple minutes' drive from the house). We found the house to be very clean, spacious, with a well-equipped kitchen for cooking. Dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer were also a plus. The lush, private garden was a welcome retreat after a busy day in the city. The residential neighborhood is completely silent, but close to a nice little "downtown" with plenty of restaurants and shops. Though we were too busy to use it, there is a nice park across the street.

peaceful and comfortable family home in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 3 weeks at Olivers house - family of 4. It has absolutely everything you need in a very nice residential area a short walk from shops and Hampton court. We couldn't have asked for a better place - really home from home. Oliver and Kasia were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Great hosts. we could recommend as a relaxing and beautiful place to stay.

Very pleasant festive break

  • 4 of 5

Versatile home for our long weekend over Christmas. So pleased we were able to take our small dog. Great to be able to walk to Hampton Court under two miles away. Oliver was very quick to respond when we were stuck for more hot water! Most things I needed were there, just needed instructions for the induction hob! Loved the Christmas decorations, made it more homely.

Spacious, with all the comforts of a home and great for families

  • 4 of 5

We chose a home instead of a hotel because we have a 6 yr child and our nephew travelling with us. This suited us as everyone was together but with their own spaces. The two living areas were a definite bonus and worked very well for us. The kitchen is lovely and would encourage the chef in all of us.

The welcome pack of continental breakfast and a few other goodies were a very nice touch and came in handy as we arrived late and didn't get a chance to get to supermarket.

The area is very good with a park virtually next door. We made good use of local village, pubs and restaurants.

The owners Kasia and Oliver were lovely and helpful.

We would recommend this to anyone wanting a home away from home, with kids and lovely quiet location which is close to London and many other attractions.

Will definitely stay here again.

Thank you

A Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

So pleased we booked here for a short break recently.

The house was very well appointed & extremely comfortable - exactly as described in the listing.

Everything you could possibly need was there, it was a real home from home.

Lovely touch with the welcome pack & it was nice to have personal contact with Oliver, the owner.

The area was nice and quiet & the high street with a good selection of shops, including a supermarket, was a short walk away. There were some really good restaurants here too if you don't want to cook!

I'd definitely stay here again - I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to stay in this area.
