About Greg Kerr

We are a family of six and have been living here for around 15 years. We love the area and our house, and hope you like it too. As well as everything that London has to offer, our local area is lively and fun too. We spend our weekends enjoying the park and playground, cycling or walking along the river, or enjoying the nearby shops and restaurants. The city center is an easy tube ride away, so we often go in to revisit favourite places.

We have a cat, Jigsaw. If you would enjoy her company, you can look out for her and keep her food topped up. There is no litter tray. If you'd prefer not to look after her, that's no problem as a friendly neighbour is more than happy to take her in.

Why Greg Kerr chose Hammersmith

Good value (for London, at any rate), very pleasant and great location - lots of local restaurants and shops, but on a quiet residential square. Very good public transport connections into the center of town in 30 minutes. Ideal for family or group of friends.

What makes this house unique

A classical London house, situated on a pretty garden square.

Only 30 minutes by tube into the center of London

About 40 minutes to Heathrow by tube.

Five minutes walk to the beautiful river Thames. You can then walk or cycle along the river towards the city center, or out towards the west.

Parks and playgrounds also five minutes away, as well as a pretty garden in front of the house, shared with neighbours.

Lots of local restaurants, pubs and shops. Two local supermarkets within 3 minutes walk.

TV, PS3, and family board games are here for your use, as well as some toys and books which may interest younger children.

Ideal for families traveling with younger children.

  • 4 of 5

This property lies in a great location for those wishing to visit London and the surrounding area with smaller children. The house lies mere minutes by walk from two tube stations, granting easy access to London, Heathrow Airport, and other locations. In addition, the neighborhood near the house has a massive park well equipped with playgrounds.

For families with smaller children, grocery stores and several restaurants with take out service offer a variety of options for good eating and not having to keep overtired children well behaved for a sit down affair. Perhaps the best feature for us was a well-equipped playroom downstairs with lots of options for children in the 3-9 range. The toy bins provided a great diversion for our kids after a long day sightseeing.

My only recommended improvement would be a little more fidelity on any clean up/check-out care the owners desire. We did our best to leave things in good condition, but the lack of instructions left us wondering if we should have done more to be good guests. Otherwise, this location suited our needs wonderfully.

Nice and comfortable house in a quiet area

  • 5 of 5

The house has 5 large and bright bedrooms and three bathrooms. It's well-equipped and very clean. The location is perfect: just 2-3 minutes' walk from Stamford Brook tube station (District line) by which you get to the city centre in 20 minutes.The house is also at ten minutes' walk from the river Thames and you can take wonderful strolls there.Supermarkets and restaurants are within easy reach too.The landlord is really friendly, welcoming and helpful.To stay in this house has been a very pleasant experience, so I warmly recommend it to anyone!

Great location. Theaters, cinemas, restaurants, cafes, shops, museums, river and parks are all nearby. Westfield Shopping Mall (one of the largest in Europe) is 10 minutes cycle ride/bus ride. Bus stops and underground train station are both 4 minutes walk from the house. Can cycle to Hampton Court (day trip). Can get the underground to Piccadilly Circus or Westminster in 30 minutes door-to-door. Friendly neighbourhood with lots going on. Great parks with playgrounds for children and pretty garden square in front of the house. River Thames is five minutes walk from the house, offering pretty walks and some very nice London pubs, where you can stop for a drink or a meal.
