Once in a lifetime Fulham is just full of interesting finds. The secret backstreets, the tasty tucked-away delis, the cherished riverside pubs... and, best of all, Bishop’s Park. If ever a home were a collector’s item, this is it. Adorned with artwork, knickknacks and sunlight, you won’t just be kept occupied but enraptured. There’s a ping-pong table in the garden, a piano in the sitting room and charm in every last corner. Sip your coffee beneath the kitchen’s tremendous skylights. Or see the bathroom’s stained glass windows. Or step outside and sightsee by the river. Or... Calm and collected Your hosts are a fun-filled family with a second home in Devon.

Sloping skylights dazzle each modern surface, from the large island to the cool dining table, the cluster of cushy sofas to the uber-groovy artwork. With a ping-pong table and barbecue, we suspect the whole family will approve of the garden. And upstairs, the snug is exactly that, with a widescreen TV to go with its sofa and roof terrace. The elegant master boasts a dapper ensuite, and you’ve another bathroom with stupendous stained glass windows.

Fans of the beautiful game won’t find a more beautiful venue than Craven Cottage, or, amble further along the towpath to Hammersmith’s buzzy pubs and restaurants. Fulham lies the other way, Chelsea’s shops are just a little further, while the West End is only twenty minutes by tube from Putney Bridge.
