Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
The ground floor apartment, in this two storey dwelling , was built in the early Edwardian era, as a home for the management of one of the local soap works. The sitting room still retains the height and decorated ceiling particular to the fashion of the day.
The apartment is self-contained and offers straight forward comfort for the independently minded holiday maker. There is a private garden accessed by a path to the side of the property. There are some very local shops and a rich variety of restaurants hopefully satisfying all grastonomic tastes.

The Middlesex region
Now superseded by the A4 and the M4, the A315, where the apartment is situated, was the main road to the South West and in particular to Bath, hence the many hostelries along its way! Some of these are now recommended "gastro-pubs." Isleworth itself was a port on the River Thames when the Thames was a busy transport artery.. The surrounding area was planted as market gardens and orchards, and in times gone by the apprentices from the London Guilds spent their holidays fruit picking in the area, hence the very famous inn right by the Thames in Old Isleworth, The London Apprentice. Isleworth was also famous for its soap works , where the original Pears Soap was manufactured.
Some suggested places of local interest for starters might be Syon House, a National Trust Property famous for its Adam interior and flourishing garden centre.
Osterley House, another National Trust property with an Adam interior set in extensive and beautiful, park land.
The Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew, world famous and special in any season of the year.
The Musical Museum in Brentford with its Mighty Worlitzer!
Waterman’s Art Centre also in Brentford, showing current films and art house theatre.
It is now possible to walk the whole length of the River Thames, and it is easy though a small challenge, to walk to Richmond along the tow path, take a look around and then walk on up to Richmond Park.
Plenty of good shopping can be found in the Westfield Centre Shopping Mall in Shepherds Bush, and in Kingston, Ealing and Hounslow town centres. Both Chiswick and Richmond make for nice visits with lots of speciality shops and pleasant restaurants.
There are river boat trips to Westminster (downstream) and up to Hampton Court Palace (upstream) from Kew Pier.
