Description

The Space

Minutes from Bond Street tube yet in a pretty, quiet cul-de-sac mews, this is an unusual opportunity to have your own 2-bedroom house in fashionable Marylebone village. Close to everything, yet still a peaceful retreat in the city hubbub.

Exquisite 2-bedroom cottage in a quiet mews in the heart of Marylebone Village right in the absolute centre of London, less than 5 minutes walk from world-famous shops of Oxford Circus, Regent Street, Bond Street. Minutes from Bond St tube.

Virtually everyone who walks through the door of Bentinck Cottage says they love it. It is a very unusual tranquil space because it is truly less then five minutes' walk from the world's most famous shopping street and yet being in a cul de sac mews, the acoustics are such that you can't hear anything. (Quieter than the countryside!)

It is south facing with tall windows so it gets flooded with sunlight during the day. The large downstairs room is cosy and I have often hosted gatherings for over twenty people with talks for famous authors who have passed through London over the years. When I first bought the house and refurbished the place it was featured in a national Sunday newspaper. I am an author of best-selling books on healthy living so the house has a wonderful vibe and is decorated throughout with organic non-chemical eco paints. It has just been repainted with quiet neutral colours, giving it a fresh look for 2015.

In addition to being in the bustling West End and walking distance from Theatreland and Royal Parks, you will be living in Marylebone Village which is now trendier and more interesting than its famous cousin Mayfair (you will recognise all the places from the expensive end of the Monopoly Board !) Endless great restaurants, bars & pubs; interesting shops & boutiques; really good grocery stores, delicatessens. wholefoods store and a Sunday organic Farmers' market too. Foodie heaven!

BETTER THAN A HOTEL: you really have a bedroom as comfy as a hotel but with the use of a kitchen which helps keep costs down for breakfast, refreshments and meals AND you can do your own laundry which is expensive in a hotel. There is a "Pimag" energised water filtration machine so you don't have to buy bottled water. You will find the house a tranquil respite to your busy day out. There is Sky TV, bring your laptop with you and use the internet (no daily charge like a hotel) plug in your iPod and play your own music. And you have your own front door out into one of central London's quietest and quaintest mews settings.

ACCESS & LAST MINUTE BOOKINGS: The house is always left ready so I can often accommodate last minute requests. You can access the key any time of day or night via a key safe on the wall outside, my housekeeper will make sure the house is ready and that beds are made up clean and fresh with 100% cotton linen. Your housekeeping charge covers the cost of the house being returned to its clean state ready for the next arrival. I am in and out of the house myself as I travel a great deal overseas and live in a country home in Yorkshire as well.

BEDS: there is an (English) king size bed (5 ft) in the master bedroom with a magnetic mattress & pillows which supports deeper sleep & really helps to get rid of jet lag. There is a soft comforter-like cover over the mattress to make it extra soft (you can remove it if you wish). The bathroom and dressing room adjoin this room. Lots of big full length mirrors. Plus a hairdryer. The second bedroom has a single bed with another single stored underneath so you can make up a second double bed or a 3rd bed as another single in that room. Bedroom 2 has "Alice" who is a sculpture when the room is vacant and becomes a wardrobe when a guest arrives :-) There is an en-suite walk-in shower room for the 2nd bedroom.

CHECK IN & OUT times: we need at least 4 hours to get the house ready for you. However, if I don't have a back to back booking, then these can be flexible as I appreciate if you are flying in/out of London then you may want access at different times. Please check with me. We can always arrange for you to drop off luggage in the morning and check in in the afternoon


There's a very comfortable lounge, fully equipped kitchen and every kind of delicatessen you can think of just a couple of minutes walk from your stove. A whole top floor of the house for luggage storage and laundry. Lots of space. The best coffee shops 2-3 minutes from your doorstep.

The house is yours to enjoy. The keys live in a key-safe mounted on the wall outside so you are free to arrive whenever you like. I am readily accessible by email. My London housekeeper can attend to any problems arising.

Marylebone Village is unusual … imagine, a village community in the heart of London! The best shops and cafes … this is 'North' Mayfair but more fun and friendlier. It has become quite the hottest place to be in London.

You can walk to so many of London's best sights. Bond Street tube station is just than five minutes walk. Less than a 30-minute walk to Theatreland and Covent Garden!
