About this listing
Our cottage is in the heart of Portobello Road minutes from the tube, market, shops, restaurants, bike hire, 10 minutes to Kensington Gardens. Incredibly quiet, cosy room with shared bathroom. 30 mins will get you to most tourist sights.
Our daughter has moved out - a comfy single room at the back of the house, so totally quiet with a black out blind if you want to sleep in.
We live in a cottage so bath/shower is shared rather than en suite. Treat it as home from home.
Interaction with guests
Very much welcome to mingle, and we have lots of good tips if you're here as a tourist. This is our home, so where we relax, entertain friends etc.
Everyone loves Notting Hill. Food, clothes and more from the market, a short walk to 3 cinemas, numerous restaurants, great shopping, Kensington Gardens and Holland Park. A great neighbourhood with beautiful architecture within a short cycle or tube journey to everything London has to offer.
Incredibly convenient. 6 bus routes and 3 tube lines on the doorstep, Notting Hill Gate is a public transport hub to most places. You can also hire bikes - the Boris Bike scheme has 2 racks nearby.
Other things to note
Minimum booking 2 nights please. Check in after 12 midday unless pre arranged.
We're a non smoking house.
Our kids have left home which explains the extra room. We both work for charities, cycle round town and have travelled a lot, so it's great to be able to reciprocate the warm welcome we get in other cities. Favourite things - good food (and wine!), travelling, friends, theatre and it's impossible to get my husband out of a bookshop without him buying anything. Pretty laid back and enjoying all that city life has to offer.
