Built in 1900, our Victorian cottage is all wonky walls with a woodburner and rolltop bath. Two bedrooms (one double; one with cot and toddler bed); the second sitting room can be used as a third bedroom with a comfortable double sofabed. The open-plan kitchen/living room opens on a sunny garden. On a quiet cul-de-sac a short walk from shops and the station. Near Twickenham rugby stadium, Hampton Court Palace, Kew Gardens and Richmond. Free parking.

The space

Come home to this quiet cocoon where every detail has been thought of by Martina, an interiors journalist at a national newspaper. Spend your evening around the rustic kitchen table in front of a fire in the woodburner, or have breakfast in the sunny courtyard garden off the open-plan living area with its oak floors and exposed brickwork.

Upstairs is the master bedroom with a kingsize sleigh bed and hand-painted wardrobes and a second bedroom for two children under six (the single bed is 140cm long, plus there is a cot). The newly renovated family bathroom has a rolltop bath and separate shower.

The century-old cottage is at the end of a cul-de-sac, yet is an easy base to access Twickenham Stadium (a 20-minute walk), Richmond, Kew, Hampton Court Palace and central London (all reachable by direct train or bus).

We had a wonderful stay in this charming house. Every care has been taken to furnish the home in high quality amenities, comfortable furnishings and interesting details. A quick walk to the local supermarket and easy to use kitchen made our stay very easy. Family friendly and our 2 year old enjoyed himself too. Highly recommended!

We loved our stay in Twickenham. The home really is charming and in a wonderful spot. Staying in this house has given us some ideas for our own home! The hosts were very helpful and provided everything we needed. We loved the home and the area.

Having travelled to more than 50 countries between the two of us (Nepal and Bolivia among the favourites), some of our best memories are of authentic home stays around the world. Martina is an interiors journalist at a national newspaper and Daniel runs his own lettings firm, so we hope our combined expertise will make your stay in our home extra special.
