The South East England region
Strawberry Cottage sits in Isleworth to the west of London on the London Road (A315) that was originally laid down by the Romans some 2,000 years ago. It was, for centuries, the main road to the west from London before being by passed twice in the 20th century. Firstly by the A4 (Great West Road) and again by the M4.
Isleworth is a Thameside village on the north bank opposite Kew and Richmond and we are situated mid way between Heathrow Airport and the West End of London ( 30 minutes each) with excellent public transport links.
We shall be happy to provide details and recommendations on places to visit and sights to see that are simply too numerous to detail here.
We would recommend a car for visits to places such as Windsor ( 40 minutes) but central London would be accessed by public transport.
Local placesof interest, i.e. outside central London, include;
a) Syon House,( The Earls and Dukes of Northumberland have lived here for 400 years )
b) The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew ,( the most complete botanical gardens in the world)
c) Kew Bridge Steam Museum,( a 19th -century water pumping station and attraction).
d) The Musical Museum in Brentford.
e) Osterley Park House,(ranked among Robert Adam's finest works).
f) Ham House,( by the Thames built in 1610).
River Bus Trips from Kew to Windsor in the East and Greenwich in the West are a lovely way to travel and explore. Hampton Court Palace, originally the home of Cardinal Wolsey, offered to King Henry in 1525 in the hope of retaining royal favour. Richmond,an attractive London village with many early 18th century houses.
For great shopping, Westfield Shopping Mall, the largest in Europe, a half hour bus ride from door to door.
Great shopping is also available in Kingston, Hounslow and Ealing Broadway.
Walking by the Thames is always attractive whilst Richmond Park, Osterley House and Syon House are close by for those that like the outdoors. There is much of historical interest that is accessible on foot from Strawberry Cottage, we shall be delighted to offer advice.

"It made Christmas 2012 possible for us."
Strawberry Cottage isa very well furnished and equipped property. It had everything we needed for a one week stay over Christmas. It even came with Christmas decorations. It was very comfortable. Our family lives nearby and we were able to visit them and have other members of our family to stay with us. It was so much more comfortable than staying in a hotel.

"Comfortable place to stay"
We stayed here for over a week and found it to be a great location - bus outside the front gate, train just along the road, small supermarkets across the road. Owners were always available to help.

"Comfortable & Convenient."
Comfortable - 2 bedroom upper level self catering apartment.
Convenient - Isleworth Station which is a 5 min walk from Strawberry Cottage, will take you straight to Waterloo Station, which is where you get off to see Big Ben, London Eye, Westminster Abbey etc. Located close to shops, restaurants and other places of interest.
I would recommend Strawberry Cottage to singles or families, but would hesitate recommending to older people, as the stairs can be quite difficult.
