Named after William Cowper, the famous Eighteenth Century Berkhamstead-born poet who wrote about the English countryside, this road occupies a prime spot in the much sought-after Poet’s Corner area. Running parallel to both Myrtle and Milton Road, Cowper Road also joins Churchfield Road, which forms the main shopping and entertainment complex in this part of Acton.
Houses on this road vary, from beautiful Victorian builds, to smaller period cottages, to flats in a 1950s-style block which is located at the very end of the road. Although formed of a few types of property, the road maintains a strong neighbourhood feel.
Residents are typically families and young professionals, including first-time buyers. Good schools such as Derwentwater Primary and the Ark Priory are a short walk from the road, as are the shops, eateries and cafes of Churchfield Road. The Rocket pub serves a delectable menu and Laveli Bakery is fantastic for the commuter’s morning coffee and croissant on their journey to work.
Cowper Road is also minutes away from Acton Central station, with its links into Stratford, Richmond, Hampstead, Camden and beyond. Acton Main Line station, which is going to be home to the new Crossrail line, is also within walking distance. Residents can also catch a bus into Shepherd’s Bush to shop at the Westfield Centre, Hammersmith to have a drink at the river, or even Chiswick, simply to enjoy its alluring High Road.
If one would like to stay closer to home, then the amenities of Acton High Street are within easy reach too. There is a Pure gym, swimming bath and a Morrisons Supermarket.
The delightful green spaces of Acton Park are also a short stroll away from the road and are a great spot in which to enjoy the warmer days.
Cowper Road is one of the most desirable residential roads in Acton and provides a peaceful setting in a very central location.
