Our home

My cottage is absolutely charming but it is small, ideally for 2 people but you could squeeze a child in the office/ 2nd bedroom but it might feel a little cramped. What you loose in size you gain in charm! The front of the house has parking, and although it will be winter the garden (for London standards) is huge.
The living room and dining room are knocked through and I have a television/DVD hidden in the cupboard and a ipod dock, so with the log fire burning it is a great space. The kitchen is off the dining room (it's tiny) and has no dishwasher and only a small fridge, but there is a small supermarket seconds away so I tend to shop for my daily meals. Down the corridor is the bathroom so unfortunately you have to go down stairs from the bedrooms to go to the loo.
In the office there is a printer/scanner and there is fast wifi internet access.
If you can accept the small size it really is a wonderful, special place.

Who we are

  1. I am a single lady designer in film/commercials who travels extensively for work and pleasure. I love art, cinema, food and music and am lucky enough to live somewhere which is surrounded by culture.
    I have left the home exchange possibility to the last minute as I only just decided to travel as I freelance and its difficult to plan.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

My very cute but compact cottage is tucked down a very quiet lane off Teddington High street which has numerous bars, restaurants, cafe's and independent shops. It is a wonderful place with all the convenience of being near to London but it is rediculously safe and laid back. It is within a 5 minute walk of Bushy Park which has wild dear roaming in it, and this is connected to Hampton Court the previous home of Henry V111. A 10 minute walk gets you to the River Thames with a wonderful path to Richmond and Richmond Park.
The train station with direct access to London in 30-40mins is a minutes walk away and I will leave my Audi A4 comfortable to cruise around the remaining area which really is beautiful.
