“Riverside Bliss”
Reviewed 12 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Cleverly designed and deceptively spacious with a wonderful view over the Thames. We booked this property almost at random as we needed accommodation while we organised a family event elsewhere. It so exceeded our expectations that we seriously considered spending the whole weekend there and avoiding the rest of the family. Comprehensively equipped the only problem was deciding which bedroom to take. We settled on the upstairs room with balcony and ensuite leaving the others to sort themselves out. The owners were flexible and welcoming and left us the essentials for breakfast so we did not have to worry the first night. In any event shops, pubs and takeaways are only 5 minutes away.
We will definitely use again when circumstances require.

“Beautiful Property Ideally situated”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A couple of friends and I stayed here for a few days over the Rugby 7's weekend in May. The views from the front room and bar were spectacular and it was ideal for the trip to Twickenham meaning we could beat the crush after the games had finished. The property itself was spacious and welcoming and we all felt we could really relax whilst there and wanted for nothing as it came ready to go with everything in the kitchen and rest of the house we needed to keep ourselves going over the weekend. The garden decking was beautiful and a great place to sit and watch the sunset with a glass or two. Completly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in a picturesque and ideally situated property.

“Beautiful, Ideal, On the Thames, Close to Twickenham”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I stayed at this house with some friends over the rugby 7s weekend at Twickenham, we had such a great time in a beautiful and modern house, ideally situated on the Thames. We ate outside most nights on the decking by the river and spent the day and evening enjoying the spacious glass fronted sitting room or in the bar downstairs. The beds we very comfy and the house was extremely clean and had everything you would expect/need. I would highly recommend this versatile house to all types of visitors and will definitely stay again. TOP NOTCH!!

“Incredible experience”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This place is absolutely wonderful! The location is fantastic and really easy to get to, only minutes away from the M3. There is a mooring at the back and it's possible to travel by boat to visit all of the local riverside pubs. We had such a wonderful time and would highly recommend.

“Superb, high quality, multi-use accommodation”
Reviewed 10 May 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I found this house very comfortable, clean and of high standard. It is clear to see that the owners have spent a lot of time, passion, and care into making this property a delight to stay in. It is suitable for many uses, ie- family get together's, weekend breaks/parties, a base for city sightseeing, or just a relaxing "get away from it all" few days. the facilities are of a high standard, light and airy but with a warm and relaxing atmosphere.
love it and would happily live here, or use as a weekend retreat.

“Weekend stay with friends - fantastic time had by all”
Reviewed 10 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A brilliant weekend was had when we stayed with friends in this stunning home. Its situation next to the river lends itself to lazy afternoons/evenings spent whiling away the time outside. The finish to the inside of the home was exceptional, yet it still felt very homely. Its proximity to London is another bonus, we were able to drive into central London in just over half an hour.
Overall, I'm so glad we chose to stay here and would happily do so again!

“Crikey - what a fantastic place !”
Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in August 2014

Stayed here for a family celebration over a weekend. Deceptive from the front as it is a MUCH bigger house than it looks from the initial approach from the road.

The huge panoramic window providing a great view of the river, the proper working kitchen (ie a proper fit as it if for a real "used every day" home), steps down to a colourful lounge with a full room width doors opening to the garden, slipway and jetty !

Bedrooms are - well - have a look at the pictures - that's what they are like ! The beds are great too - have to pull rank to get the round one :).

Really is a great place to have a gathering - it really worked for us, or a smaller family one would work well too.

We are so glad the property was suitable for the family celebration. The circular bed does appear to be causing much interest - we too have to "pull rank" to get that room (although we also quite like having a room that opens onto the garden and river - especially in the summer). Thank you for taking the time for writing the review and we look forward to having you stay again!
