About Robin

We live on site in the main house. The Coach House is at the foot of our garden sectioned off by a gated fence. We built it in 2009/2010. I work from home as a lawyer.

Robin purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Robin chose England

Everyone loves it ; spacious living dining kitchen, nice aspect looking out of huge ground floor west facing windows onto a bay tree in a stoned private patio, well equipped, modern underfloor heating, completely private despite huge windows, light; cosy in winter.

Comes with a rental car option. Car outside the flat - you can rent it by the day week or month. See https://carclub.easycar.com/ search by location or postcode you want Barnes or SW13 9JR.

Perfect New Year celebration

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage, thoughtfully designed from an old coach house. It is located in Barnes. Silence at night is amazing. We had no problem going to the central London and we have found many local attractions. For example, I enjoyed Thames Path walks to the Putney Bridge from where Oxford-Cambridge boat rate begins. Apartment is almost perfect. It is modern, clean, has a large kitchen, nice bathroom, good furniture, even the garden and bbq (which we did not use). Robin provides professional and friendly service as well as attention to the details. Highly recommend. GregB

Perfect location, modern accommodation

  • 4 of 5

Convenient location for West End, Kings Cross Station and Barnes.Excellent local bus service outside the front door. Handy for exploring Barnes, with many areas of interest. Fantastic bed! We slept like the proverbial log. Very comfortable accommodation, where we were able to relax and chill out, after busy days out.

Excellent property, location, helpful attention.

  • 5 of 5

This holiday property is accurately represented by its Web site: It was clean, warm, well appointed, surprisingly spacious. The owner was personable and very helpful. Convenient central London location close to amenities and transport. All in all, we recommend it highly and would return.

Almost perfect

  • 5 of 5

After a long search for an appartment or hotel near Hammersmith I stumbled upon this offer - and it was the best possible choice to make. The apparment is in great shape with new and modern kitchen equipment (even an oven, which is not overall common), a spacious living room, a small, but absolutely sufficient bedroom and a nice bathroom. The appartment itself was very tidy and clean; everything in it worked to 100%.

As others have written before, it is not in the center of Hammersmith, but the bus only needs five Minutes to the tube station Hammersmith. From there you can explore most of the tourist sites in London within 30 Minutes. The part of London where the appartment lies, Barnes, also offers some restaurants, nice pubs and with the London Wetland Centre a real hotspot for friends of nature and birds.

The contact with the owner was very nice and he proved to be really helpful while we stayed there. Questions I had in advance were answered very quick and friendly.

In total, I wouldn't know how it could have been any better - I would definitely recomend this appartment to almost anyone, with this slight limitation: It is listed as suitable for the elder and infirm, And although it is completely on the ground level I would have slight doubts wether the bathroom is really suitable for people who have difficulties lifting their legs. But that really remains the only limitation I would make.

Lovely home in a beautiful neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I found this property to be perfect for our stay in London. We enjoyed the comfort of the extra room and the ability to have our breakfast and sometimes dinner there. Robin was very helpful with suggestions and answers to our questions. The bus stopped across the street to take us to the Center where we could take the Tube/bus to any place. We would definitely stay there again.

Coach House in Barnes

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this rental - that should say enough! We loved it as much the second time as the first and found it very convenient to our son's house at the other end of Barnes on the 419 to Richmond and to downtown London via the 419 to Hammersmith to catch the Tube into the center of London.

We would definitely rent this house again. It's cozy and modern and airy. It is very clean and well furnished. Dishwasher plus a washer/dryer combination so you can pack light! Communication with the owner is easy. I would definitely recommend this to friends or relatives - in fact, already have! We will be back in about a year and hope it will be available!

We are in Barnes, an upmarket little community within 200 metres of the river Thames & 1.6 kms from Hammersmith which is a major urban transport hub. We are separated from Hammersmith by the river and by historic & beautiful Hammersmith Bridge.

Hammersmith has all tube lines, so getting to the centre is not a problem and doesn't take much time.

Barnes is peaceful and quiet with shops, cafes, pubs and a pond.

There is a bus outside the door of the flat to and from Hammersmith every 15 mins. Alternatively you can walk 6 minutes (500 meters) up the road to Hammersmith Bridge where there are buses every minute of the day.

We live on site - the flat is at the bottom of our garden beyond a pergola and trellising in a detached building with its own entrance to the street.

Its a great little car I shared with my son until he went to Australia. Just sign up online and search SW13 9JR for the rental location. Sutable for 2 adults + or - 2 children or maybe 3 if there's a really small one. No smoking in the bedroom.
