“Sara’s house is just far enough out of the city to be relaxing. We recommend the water taxi for your daily trek into the city. Tea at the Swan was delightful. Shakespeare tour. Harry Potter tour and London tower tour were the highlights. Best fish and chips were right near the house at the Old Ship inn. Can’t wait to come back and we’ll stay at Sara’s again! ”
Where is it?
We are conveniently located in a safe residential area of traditional Victorian terraced houses in zone 2. At one end of the road is the path along the river Thames for lovely walks and bike rides, including to historic old London pubs.
There are various shops at the other end of the road, including a convenience store, butcher, bakery etc and the house is less than 10 minutes walk from a wide choice of restaurants, cafes and shops, as well as a cinema, on Putney High Street. There is also a park a few minutes from the house with a playground for younger children.
From the pier very nearby you can catch the river bus into the heart of London in the mornings or evenings (only a 35 minute trip) or you can jump on the 22 bus from the end of our road which will take you through Fulham, up the Kings Road, through Knightsbridge and round Hyde Park Corner to Piccadilly Circus and home again (including all night). If you prefer to take the Tube, the nearest station (Putney Bridge) is about a 12 minute walk along the riverside path or road. Notting Hill (for Portobello Market and Kensington Gardens) and South Kensington (for the Science, Natural History and V&A museums) are only a few stops away and Wimbledon is even closer in the other direction.
The area is generally quiet although there can sometimes be some noise from planes overhead (the flight paths change regularly).
