Stayed at Ivy Cottage with my young family in June of 2019. Was a great base for us to visit friends and family and was superbly located close to all amenities of vibrant Putney. Lots of good travel options too.
Simon and Barbara were very communicative and ensured our stay was pleasant and care free.
Property is as described and was a peaceful retreat after a long day of exploring London. The fact that it’s behind a gated entrance also adds an extra level of security. Weather was bad during our stay but we still managed to use the outside grill and enjoy the garden area.
Our family absolutely love our stay! The place is large and comfortable! Even though we didn’t spend much time there, the place was spacious, clean, and a great place to rest.
We had great communication with the owners as well.
Having wi-fi is also a great plus when away from home. The area was quiet and beautiful as well. We didn’t have a car so we had to walk everywhere. We used the southern most train station and was just about 20 mins walking. Grocery stores were also close by.
Just a heads up, to get in the apartment you need to use stairs (we had no problems with that but some folks might). Also, if you are a ‘extra size’ person you may have trouble using the shower since it’s small aperture. Again, we had no issues but just be mindful for this who are.
We absolutely LOVE the place and the back garden was such a beautiful place to relax and meditate.
**Please, say thanks to your son as well for looking after us. He was such a lovely young man. Hope one day to return to London.
