Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home! Our family enjoyed our stay at this warm inviting home. The location is central to markets, restaurants, parks and grabbing an Uber was super easy. The street was quiet and i felt very safe. The house was clean and well maintained and communication was easy for check in and extra supplies. The upstairs living room area was perfect for gathering together. i would definitely stay here again in the future. The owner, Caroline was also very kind and accommodating. Only improvement would be a bit more lighting in the downstairs bathroom.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Mew House. It was located close to the Notting Hill Gate underground station and close to shops, pubs and restaurants.

The house was comfortable. It was hot in London when we visited so we definitely used the fans to cool the place down at night.

We loved the Apple TV and lounging on the comfortable sofa after a long day sightseeing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and for leaving the house in such good condition. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay - it certainly it is unusual in London to be so hot that fans are needed, but we are glad to hear you were all comfortable. Thank you for using Elizabeth Lytton - The Hotel Alternative to book your stay. We hope to welcome you again next time you are in town. All the best Ginette and the Elizabeth Lytton Team

Lovely, Lovely, Lovely

  • 5 of 5

I was in London celebrating my birthday with some of my girlfriends, after hiking in the south of England with my husband. This apartment was perfect in every way - great neighborhood, spacious, beds for everyone, ideally located in Notting Hill near to the tube station, amazing restaurants galore, Holland Park/Kensington Palace. The sitting room pictured is roomy and we had coffee here every morning and wine in the late afternoon. The house was furnished nicely without being too much for a vacation rental. The owner, Caroline, was lovely, too, of course. She was helpful in every way.

A Pretty Residential Area in the Heart of London

Kensington is home to many European embassies, and is where several grand buildings are situated. A few being the Royal Albert Hall, Victoria and Albert museum, The Royal Geographical Society and the Natural History museum and the Science museum. Hyde Park and Kensington Palace are located about 14 minutes walk from the house, and is a wonderful place to explore old traditional England. By contrast, almost next door is the Serpentine Art Gallery, which shows modern England with its amazing modern art installations.

A neighbourhood full of pretty Victorian architecture and gardens the area is bordered by food markets, great shopping, as well as music and comedy venues situated throughout Kensington.

If you want some peace amid the buzz of London or a place for the children to let off steam take a stroll in the many public gardens along the Kensington borders. Or take a Boris bike ride to the Serpentine river in Hyde Park, being the more well known public park, just 8 minutes away. Here you can enjoy the lush scenery and take a row boat or go swimming in the lake.

Serpentine Bar & Kitchen – This glass-walled building on the lakefront with a rich history and charming interior provide friendly staff and service. Perfect for breakfasts.

The Lido Cafe – Just a bit further up the Serpentine is a fantastic spot for tea and cake. You can enjoy the quiet scenery, friendly staff and quick service.

Five minutes stroll from the house is Notting Hill Gate home to the famous and vibrant Portobello Road market for bric a brac and antiques of all kinds. Just off Portobello is Westbourne Grove and Ledbury road, home to stylish boutiques and delicious delis.

Holland Park is around 10 minutes walk from the house. It has 22.5 hectares of gardens, children’s play facilities, sports areas, a cafeteria and large areas of woodland abundant with wildlife. Contained within the park is the beautiful Kyoto Garden; a Japanese garden donated by the Chamber of Commerce of Kyoto in 1991. The Ecology Centre at Holland Park runs a series of events and holiday activities for children of all ages.
