Fantastic parks, restaurants, cafes, bars, boutiques. Close to tube; easy access to all London’s central attractions. 5 bedrooms, large kit, recep rm, 2 roof terraces, garden.

The house is spread over four storeys, with a mix of eclectic and modern decor. Built around 150 years ago, there are original cornices and architectural features throughout the house. This is our family home for two-thirds of the year, and there are plenty of books, games, pictures, dvds and wifi. Inside the house are original floorboards, double-ended baths, ivory door handles, and thick firm mattresses. Relax on one of the sofas in the large living room, or another in the large family kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped, with two dishwashers, range cooker, large fridge-freezer, and garden doors which can be completely folded back so the whole of the back of the house opens onto the garden.

There are two bathrooms plus a separate wc (3 wcs in total). One of the bathrooms – with a roll-top bath in the middle of the room – can be either an ensuite or a family bathroom. We can supply cot, high chair and baby listening equipment on request.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

I stopped in London for a couple of days before heading home after a long business trip, and i couldn't have asked for better place to unwind. The house is in a quiet residential street, but only a few minutes walking distance from the charming Portobello flea/antique market and another neighborhood packed with excellent restaurants. The city center and main tourist points of interest are about 20 min away from nearby underground station. The house itself is as described online and could easily accommodate any number of guests. Finally, the cherry on the cake, the rental process is expertly and professionally managed by Helen, Lucy and Sally.

Summer week in London

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families (4 adults, and 6 children). We all had a bed to sleep on. This charming house was in great condition and in the best location we could ask for. The children loved playing with all the toys and the PlayStation! I would definitely recommend this home if you are travelling with children. Beats the hotel any time. Everything is right there!

We were three families meeting up for a lond weekend. We found the property to be spacious, interesting and in an excellent location. Communication with the property manager was also excellent. We very much enjoyed our stay and would certainly consider returning.

The house is in the Ladbroke Grove/Notting Hill area, famous for its lively Portobello market, diverse population (artists, bankers, politicians and designers all rubbing shoulders) and the Notting Hill Carnival (Europe’s biggest carnival).

All of London’s central attractions within easy reach, e.g. Hyde Park, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Soho, Madame Tussaud’s, Chinatown, Covent Garden, Westfield Shopping centre. The nearest tube station is a 5 minute walk from the house, or use the 24-hour taxi services.

Notting Hill’s Portobello market is a 3 minute walk, with hundreds of stalls, antique shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, boutiques, bookshops and the oldest cinema in Britain (complete with leather armchairs and footstools!). The neighbourhood has fantastic parks, restaurants, cafes, bars, and boutiques – it’s all here!
