Why marion mitchell chose Richmond

I fell in love Southlodge. It is so full of character and history I loved the high ceilings and large windows, also the privacy of the courtyard garden.

What makes this apartment unique

Beautifully furnished with high end furniture and fittings. White company bedding, Apple computer and TV. Fresh flowers and a bottle of wine free with every stay. A real home away from home

Guestbook comments from the owner

1A Southlodge





We really enjoyed our week at 1A Southlodge.



We were met on time by the owner’s representative and welcomed into a very clean apartment full of fresh flowers and a bottle of wine!



Our main aim was to relax for a week and we were able to do that within quiet and peaceful surroundings with the added bonus of the small garden area perfect for a late afternoon drink.



We used the bus stop to Richmond or Kingston (2 minutes away) to go shopping a couple of times even though we had our car. Car parking is on the road but there was always space at all times of day.



We found the apartment ideal for visiting the historic Ham House (short walk) and Hampton Court Palace (short drive) as well as Petersham Nurseries (short walk) and of course, Richmond Park.



The computer/internet access was extremely useful in planning our days out and finding the best coffee shops!!



We were very pleased, overall, with our choice of what is really a country location with good access to surrounding amenities and also central London via train. In addition our deposit was returned within a week of our return home.

Well furnished, very comfortable flat in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Marion's apartment for 2 weeks. Marion was quick to respond to any of our requests, one of which was a very early check in. The flat is very well furnished and comfortable. There are very high ceilings giving it a grand, open feel. Both bedrooms have plenty of space as well as cupboard space for clothes. The kitchen is well equipped. Marion provided fresh flowers, tea, coffee and a bottle of bubble and some milk which was very much appreciated. The courtyard to the flat is really cute and great for the warmer days. Marion's flat is in a superb location, bus at end of street (10 mins into Richmond), numerous pubs within walking distance, Ham House and River 10 mins walk and the flat is directly opposite a common with a duck pond. We were family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) and we wouldn't hesitate to stay in Marion's flat if the opportunity arose again. Thanks Marion for a very nice 2 weeks in your comfortable and stylish flat.

Ham

  • 4 of 5

overall I liked the property. Any qualms would be: doors to bathroom and bedroom create an awkward space, where you are always dodging one door or another. It would have been nice to use the fireplace which wasn't working.

Beyond Magical Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Richmond is a heavenly place on earth - and Marion's flat is perfectly situated within it. Surrounded by the most beautiful parks in England and passageways entwining throughout the lush green landscape, lending itself to the feeling that this is an enchanted cottage. Every amenity is granted, impeccably designed and arranged, pristinely kempt and wonderfully cozy, even more so - romantic. We loved our stay at Marion's flat so much we extended as long as we could and look forward to a time when we will return. Marion is a Super Host!

Quiet well - equipped ground floor flat

A well-located ground floor flat located near the twenty-four hour 65 bus to Richmond. Well-equipped for eating at home with guests. The landlord is responsive and helpful. A real pleasure to stay here.
