Sunny house with big garden, sleeps 4-6

Our house sleeps 5-6 with two double bedrooms, a child’s room, and a futon mattress. We work from home so have very fast broadband (200 mbps plus a mesh system) which is more than fast enough for two simultaneous video meetings etc.

Unusually for London we have a long garden that runs down to the river (there is a gate at the end, in case you have children!) and views over the local parks. You can walk for miles from our house without needing to use roads - we are on the Capital Ring which is a long distance green walk right round London.

We have a big glass sitting room / orangery looking out onto the garden. An open plan kitchen-dining room. A cosy sitting room for evenings with a working fire, and smart TV.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, two modern bath/shower rooms, and a child’s room with a junior size bed. The two double bedrooms both have air conditioning so you will be comfortable even in a heatwave.

The garden has an outdoor dining area with barbecue. If you know how to kayak you can borrow our kayak and paddle to the local pub.

The house is ideal for families or for two couples.

We have a cat called Figaro who loves being looked after by visitors!

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Heathrow -

Hanwell is a neighbourhood in west London. It’s very green with lots of parks, good walks by the canals and river, local pubs and cafes, a small zoo and plenty for children.
All the shops you need are in walking distance, there is no need to take the bus.
Hanwell is between central Ealing (fancy shops and restaurants) and Southall (amazing Indian food, buzzy feeling).
