This is a beautiful family home within walking distance of central Twickenham and Richmond with their good pubs, restaurants and shops. The en suite room was tastefully furnished, wonderfully comfortable and ultra clean. Catherine is a lovely host and we were warmly welcomed by her and her family. A great find.

This was a truly lovely room – and I the biggest ensuite I've seen – in a beautiful neighbourhood. The location was also perfect for walking to either Twickenham Stadium (30 min) or Kew Gardens (25 min). Check-in/out was seamless and Catherine was very helpful and a quick communicator. Thank you for making our stay so perfect!

We were looking for a place to stay near to Kew and this was perfect. Very comfortable room with a fantastic en-suite. A bonus was sky TV with sports package which made for a relaxing afternoon before our evening engagement.

Catherine's home is exquisite! Even better than the pictures. Our room was just perfect! Elegant and cozy at the same time. Our bed was extremely comfortable and the shower and bath terrific. I felt like we were staying at a boutique hotel. And the location is ideal. Just steps away from Richmond Bridge, and many fabulous cafes and shops. Catherine and her wonderful family made us feel very welcomed in their lovely home. She made our stay incredibly enjoyable with all the great suggestions and detailed information she provided about the Richmond area. She was extremely responsive to our questions, and very kind, warm, and friendly. Renting bicycles and exploring the beautiful area made our weekend magical. We wouldn't haven been able to have this amazing experience without her help and guidance. And she's a master chef as well! She made us delicious breakfasts with homemade breads and an amazing lemon spread. Don't hesitate booking a stay at Catherine's lovely home. My husband, 6 year-old son and I look forward to returning!
