Central location. Flexible, spacious and well equipped accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

The Garden House in Pimlico provided ideal accommodation for us; two sisters staying with three of our grandchildren aged between four and eleven. The central location of the property meant travel times were kept to a minimum. The buses were particularly good - less than one minutes walk to the bus stop from The Garden House then direct routes to many attractions such as the museums.

Inside The Garden House, the accommodation was surprisingly spacious and very well equipped. It was clean and furnished to a high standard. The 'extras' provided such as basic kitchen and cleaning supplies were much appreciated. So often with self catering, there is significant extra expense buying in these necessities.

This is an example of the kindness shown to us by Sarah, the owner. Her contact before the visit to check we had everything required was welcome as was her personally meeting us at the house to show us round.

I would book The Garden House without hesitation if required again in future and certainly recommend it to others.

Ho soggiornato in questa splendida casa con in gruppo di amiche. Complimenti alla proprietaria per la casa molto bella ed elegante e confortevole. Sarà ci ha accolti con una gentilezza e si è messa a disposizione di tutto. Sicuramente il mio prossimo viaggio a Londra ritornerò volentieri in questa meravigliosa casa.

Quirky fun and convenient for central london

  • 5 of 5

Individual property over 3 floors with plentiful bathroom and relaxation space. The owner includes thoughtful additions such as rugs, books etc plus a well equipped cosy kitchen. We walked to the majority of central London attractions but bus and tube are very close. lovely local community - we would definitely book again next time we are in London

Thank you Sarah

  • 5 of 5

I really appreciate you meeting us upon arrival. It is a great apartment and a great location. Victoria station one direction and Pimlico tube the other. We were very comfortable in the apt. It was VERY quiet at night. A lovely neighborhood. The apartment was clean and everything worked. I loved it and would stay here again.

Thank you, Sarah, for great accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Garden House! Very central. Many iconic London sights within walking distance which was wonderful. The Pimlico tube station only a short distance from the house can whisk you off to anywhere the tube goes and is extremely efficient. Get that Oyster card as this makes transit travel absolutely fool proof. Having a basic pantry at the house was very helpful and we used the kitchen every day. We had a great time and enjoyed our visit immensely. Thank you Sarah! Two thumbs up!

There is a luxurious double reception room with Philippe Stark furnishings and Bang & Olufsen appliances, including a TV and CD player.

There is both a cafe and a famous delicatessen within metres of the house. On the adjacent street, there is a full range of amenities, small but well stocked supermarket, dry cleaners, laundrette, Indian restaurant, friendly pub and colourful Tapas bar. There is a fantastic variety of shops, bars and restaurants near Victoria Station. Across the River Thames is Battersea Park, ideal for running, walking and tennis.
