cozy family home (sleeps 6) home swap

Twickenham is on one of the loveliest stretches of the River Thames (300m from the house) in the London Borough of Richmond. Family house in a quiet, safe, leafy residential street but within 8 mins. walking distance to town centre, buses and train station with fast link to central London (train is 22 mins. to London Waterloo Station).

Bright 1920s end of terrace family house, thoroughly renovated and redecorated in 2007. Five bedrooms (two of them are used for other purposes, but we have double sofabeds in one room with a door and another open room [kitchen area]). Plenty of toys and books for childred aged 5-13; two adjoining bedrooms on top floor are for children, but with full-sized beds that can be used by adults. Two bathrooms. Ample fenced west-facing back garden.

We do not own a car as it is not necessary in our area. Our weekly house-cleaning arrangement could be continued.

Attractions within walking distance or short bus/ferry ride: Marble Hill House (close by), Ham House, Richmond Deer Park, Kew Gardens, Bushy Park, Hampton Court Palace. Tennis court and Twickenham Rowing Club within a few minutes walk.
