Closed throughout the winter. Website needs to be updated. This National Trust facility was closed inspite of the websites suggesting otherwise. It will not reopen until the spring. This needs to be reflected in the information on the website to prevent wasted journeys.

Special Victorian house. Well preserved. Even has outside toilet. It is dark inside and must have been quite a sombre atmosphere inside. Loads of personal/local history of the Carlisle’s. They didn’t have any children but he always seemed to be visiting Scotland, which couldn’t have helped! Fascinating loft conversion with roof windows, sliding shutters , etc. Clever design. Details about problems with builders, home help are very interesting. Mrs C. kept diaries which are on show. Really worth the entrance fee. Free if you are a NT member.

Once over Battersea Bridge , turn right along Cheyne walk , walk a half a mile until you see a statue of Carlyle himself and follow that road behind him into Cheyne row. National trust owned , £8 per adult (Sept 2019 prices) to get in , Free if a member . Tom Carlyle & his wife Jane rented this property , Which i read for £35 PER YEAR in the early 18th century , Both came from Scotland and Tom was at the time a literally star Many a friend turned up at the house ,Charles Dickens,John Ruskin,Lord Tennyson William Morris and even a very young Oscar Wilde . The house has a lot of memorabilia and it`s all in situ , From paintings to personal belongings , Every room tells it`s own story , And with reading cards on certain furniture telling you what you are looking at , with 2 flights of stairs and a downstairs for the servants which i found fascinating because the head house keeper made notes on some of the staff , Some of the staff were quiet disastrous .. Low lighting makes the place like it was , And don`t forget the Garden Small but well kept and look out for very old pictures of Carlyle in the said garden . The two staff members who were volunteers were lovely & very welcoming There is a toilet as well in the house to use , No where to eat/drink but with The Kings rd just round the corner with plenty of places . A lovely place to visit and the river Thames just over the main rd and Battersea park over the bridge it makes a great day out ..

We really enjoyed our visit. Incredibly interesting house, and so well preserved since the late 1800s! Situated on a quiet road with a small and idyllic back garden. The two NT women who greeted us were very helpful, both with their information about the house and in filling our water bottles! Much of the visit was 'self-discovery', with the freedom to wander from room to room/floor to floor at your own pace. Lots of information cards and things to read on the way. We liked that the staff were not too intrusive in their approach, occasionally on NT other visits the staff can be a little over-bearing and a touch too opinionated - we appreciate a gentler, quieter manner. Wonderful, and well worth a visit if you want a breather from the big, busier tourist spots in London.

Visited here yesterday. A lovely property. Wonderful to think of all of the literary greats who had spent time with the Carlyle's in their cosy living room. It had such a welcoming feeling. The highlight for me however, was the delightfuly tame Robin in the garden that hopped into the house!
