About this listing
A stunning house in North Kensington close to city centre on a beautiful peaceful crescent. With 2 luxurious double bedrooms and 2 spare single beds we can comfortably sleep 6 adults. The perfect place for exploring and entertaining in London.
Thoughtfully refurbished and interior designed, this dream house is located in a quiet crescent, overlooking a child friendly gated communal garden. The front door is also set back from the road by the gorgeous, private front garden. Water features, birds and an abundance of colour surrounds as you relax on the garden chair whilst watching the evening sun set over Notting Hill.
The welcoming combination of traditional soft furnishings and beautifully lit, colour-blushed interior design pampers the senses and inspires the soul.
The house is very quiet and is blessed by having no neighbours to the rear. Opening the patio doors at the back to link the patio with the kitchen and dining areas makes for a wonderfully peaceful al fresco ambience. A far cry from the London buzz.
And the buzz… the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is home to some of the most interesting and enjoyable attractions in London. From the ever-hip King's Road in Chelsea to the more recently popular Notting Hill and Portobello; the shopping heaven that is Kensington High Street & Harrods; the fantastic greenery and scenery of Kensington Gardens; to some of London's top museums, located in South Kensington. St Marks park, only 5 minutes walk away, houses a fantastic water park and adventure playground for the kids, which is overlooked by a charming outdoor café for the less energetic. The wonderful local bars and eateries are a treasure easily discovered and a short tube or bus ride is all that separates you from the glittering delights of the West End and London city center.
Owned by a very successful film director, the aesthetic luxury and homeliness of the interior is a testimony to the owner's many years of experience behind the silver screen. A stay here will leave you inspired and hopefully full of wonderful memories from this eclectic city.
The whole 2 bedroom house, private patio/terrace and private front garden.
Interaction with Guests
We personally meet all of our guests on arrival at the house and we are happy to help with just about anything from arranging taxis to finding out about local events.
Barlby Gardens is a little gem, it is a quiet crescent road with very little through traffic and a gorgeous gardens in the centre for the kids. Wonderful neighbours, Great parks, amazing coffee and London on your doorstep, what more could you want!
Buses are amazing and head in all directions from the stops on Ladbroke Grove (2 mins walk away). The tube (Ladbroke Grove) is a short 5 minute bus ride away or 10 minutes walking.

About the Host, Rowan
(I'm the one with the moustache by the way)
I love finding hidden gems in London... last weekend we discovered the best falafel wrap from a little stall on Golborne road (close to Portobello Road).. Mouthwatering (and actually not at all un-healthy!).
Whether its an off the wall indie coffee shop with a magical secret blend or a new exhibition at one of the amazing museums, there is just so much going on here it makes it a truly exciting place to be.
We have been hosting holiday-makers from all over the world for more than 5 years now and pride ourselves on the qualty of our homes and of our service (always with a smile and we like to think we are as accommodating as humanly possible).
We live in the same area as all of our properties and are bringing up our 2 children here. We love what we do and the fact that it gives us more time together as a family is a huge bonus.
If I'm not in London, I'm probably in the heart of mid-Wales, getting some mud on my boots and enjoying the lack of traffic and parking meters :)
Looking forward to hearing from you.
