Perks for the Parents

This stunning modern high-spec residence on the edge of Richmond Park is perfect for a family-centred vacation in London. It is beautifully styled with designer pieces and has a 70ft garden with trampoline, swings and slides, making it great for kids too. Richmond is a particularly family-friendly borough on the River Thames around 20 minutes by train into the city center. We love the sleek contemporary designed kitchen, the great provision for kids under 10 and the style and comfort on offer for parents too.

Why Kids Love it

There are plenty of toys, books and games for kids of all ages, from stuffed giraffes to picture books and toy cars. There is also a terrific 70ft garden, lawned with a trampoline, swings and a slide. The local area is highly family friendly and includes Richmond Park, London’s largest green space, an ideal park for spotting deer, running, playing and bike riding. There are soft play centers and child-friendly restaurants in Richmond, with Hampton Court Palace and Twickenham Rugby Ground a short drive away too.

My name is Sophie and my husband is Keith. We have three daughters; Lola, Betsy and Willow. We have lived in and around West London for 20 years. We have been in Richmond since 2004. As of July 2017 we are travelling around the world for a family gap year. When not travelling, I am co-owner of a Consultancy specialising in leadership development and change. Keith is a property developer. Due to Keith's passions for architecture, house building and design, we have moved around a little, each time renovating our properties. We have lived in this house since 2010 and renovated it completely before moving in. We enjoy travelling with the children. In particular, we love visiting Ibiza with friends and southern Europe with family. We enjoy staying in relaxed yet design-led, family friendly places. Some of our favourite destinations are to Soho House hotels. We joined Kid & Coe as we thought it was a great idea. We are looking forward to staying in some of the beautiful houses on this site in the years to come.

The Marchmont Residence was a true pleasure to visit! Sophie was very communicative from the start, offering detailed house notes and local suggestions, and made checking in a breeze. She left a basket of basic groceries (and treats), which meant we didn't have to make our usual first-day trip to the store. The location worked out perfectly, with a bus stop, train/underground station, bakeries, pubs, restaurants, gardens, and shops all super close. Though we came to see London, one of our favourite days was playing pingpong and jumping on the trampoline at the house, followed by a trip to the Kew Gardens one train stop away. Marchmont was clean, spacious, comfortable, and a great place to relax after a long day of sightseeing in the city. We would happily return on our next trip to London!

We traveled to the Larchmont House from LA with two little ones under the age of 5, and had a fantastic experience. The location is incredible - there's a great playground within a 10 minute walk that's adjacent to a pub with glorious food. There's a grocery a very short (10 min!) drive away. There's a theatre and coffee shop within walking distance, a great deli too. The neighborhood is wonderful to just stroll through as well. The house though...man, we LOVED the house. The photos for this house do not do it justice, and these are beautiful photos. Staying here made us rethink how to design our own home, it's that great. The kitchen, dining and living room were all family friendly and with the fully opening glass doors that pull all the way back, utilizing the outdoor space was incredible. Let alone that awesome trampoline and play structure at the back of the yard. Beds were comfortable, the two little ones dug right into all the toys and books and were so happy. Enough space and comforts for all (love the coffee machine!). Working with the owner was a breeze, Sophie made our stay more than fantastic. Detailed instructions on how to use all the appliances, a great cleaner was offered (and used!) and Sophie available via phone and text for any issues (which were nearly none, except when we set off the alarm on accident). The welcome basket was a lovely touch and we felt comfortable being there. We definitely want to book Larchmont again, it was perfect.

Richmond, London

Room to breathe

Richmond is a town in its own right around 15 minutes by fast train southwest of London. Expect great shopping, friendly restaurants and a plethora of things to do with the kids, from feeding the ducks at the London Wetlands Centre nearby, exploring Kew Gardens, boating on the Thames and spotting red and fallow deer in Richmond Park.
