Fabulous loft in the heart of Notting Hill, and with direct access to a stunning 3 acre communal garden. 1 bedroom plus a separate sleeping loft makes this ideal for a couple, or alternatively for 2 friends who want separate beds.
Sunny loft conversion on the 3rd floor in a classic white stucco building in the heart of the village-y part of Notting Hill. 1 bedroom, separate sleeping loft with futon (not suitable for small kids or people with mobility issues) There is 1 bathroom, a large open plan living / dining, and separate kitchen. The kitchen has been refurbished since the pictures you see here. The flat is beautifully furnished. With Portobello Market and countless great restaurants, cafes, delis, bookshops and boutiques right on your doorstep. The flat has 10 windows and 3 skylights, so its fantastically sunny, even on a grey day, and because its one of the famous communal gardens (as featured in the movie, Notting Hill) its surprisingly quiet. The best of both worlds - high ceilings, loads of light AND direct access to the garden, from the back of the building. The perfect place for a picnic, reading or enjoying a sundowner at the end of a long day. Great transport links - West End in 10 mins. Ladbroke Grove tube is 5 mins away and Notting Hill tube is 10 mins away. Plus good bus service and nearby Boris bikes if you are feeling energetic! Free wifi. i-pod dock. Nespresso machine (but capsules not provided!)
Fabulous private communal garden, as featured in the movie "Notting Hill". It runs the length and breadth of the block and is accessed directly out of the back of the building. It can only be used by people who live directly on the garden so is safe and quiet and beautifully planted. A wild and romantic place right in the heart of the city, it is totally magical. Take a picnic down there and lie beneath the trees, or just sit and read a book with a cappuccino from any of the local delicious local cafes, or enjoy a sundowner as the garden is a real sun trap.
Interaction with Guests
I will meet you on arrival and am always available via email, text or phone if you need help or advice. But basically the flat is yours to enjoy.
Wow, where to begin? Loads of great restaurants, cafes, delis, boutiques, the world famous Portobello Market is literally about a 1 minute walk away. The lesser known Golborne Road Market (which intersects at the top of Portobello and is about a 10 minute walk up Portobello Road) is also really fun to wander around. Its a Portuguese and Morroccan neighbourhood and has a really authentic vibe. I've made a book of my favourite things to do in the neighbourhood and beyond - favourite places for breakfast, for dinner, favourite markets, favourite places to shop etc and that is in the flat for you to be inspired by!
Super well located. A bus stop opposite that serves the West End and some other useful destinations. Ladbroke Grove tube is 5 mins walk away and Notting Hill Gate tube is about 10 mins walk away. Boris Bikes are located in the next street over (Blenheim Crescent) and Gatwick, Stansted and Heathrow Airports are all easy to reach by public transport.

Please take good care of my flat as I love it and its filled with beautiful things! Please don't betray my trust.
Check in is at or after 3.00pm on day of arrival, and check out is by 10.00am on day of departure. If I can be flexible with these times I will be, but it depends a lot on what other bookings I have.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Lucy, l'appartement est très agréable, très lumineux et très bien placé. Je recommande vivement cet endroit.
My best friend and I had the most fantastic stay at Lucy's flat in Notting Hill for a week over our holiday, and it was a pleasure meeting her upon our arrival! Lucy showed us around her lovely home and was very helpful in answering any questions we may have had. We greatly appreciated her packet of places to definitely check out while in London—we loved her list of restaurants in the neighborhood (lots of Italian food options for dinner :) ) I must say that she has the most chic taste in décor and the most ideal living location in Notting Hill—nearby a sweet bookshop, a friendly coffee shop (Kitchen & Pantry), convenient bus stop, Portobello Road Market, and just a quick stroll to two Tube stations and both Hyde Park/Holland Park. I would definitely love to return! Thank you, Lucy! x
The host was welcoming and accommodating. She introduced us to all the features of the flat and took us through the guidebook of the local area.
Great location for both within Notting Hill and to access central London. Great way to feel like a local.
This was our second time staying in Lucy's flat. Quite frankly, this has become our 'home away from home' while in London. We so appreciate the spaciousness & warmth - as well as her wonderful library and art. Her 'Sunny Notting Hill loft' is in a great location for public transportation, yummy food and shopping. And the garden was my morning race-walking track - perfect!
We had a fabulous time at Lucy' flat. Notting Hill is funky & chic, the flat is sunny and bright (love the morning light that comes through the window behind the bed!) and Lucy's thoughtful little booklet of restaurant and other suggestions came in quite handy. Lucy is responsive, helpful and has great taste besides (you'll see once you're in the flat). Highly recommended!
Imagine a perfect spot at Notting Hill. Well, this is the place. Nothing more to say really, it's just perfect, with it's hidden garden and huge roof top. On top of that, Lucy, a very nice – and very strong – host. Not only she carried some of our heavy bags upstairs, but also gave the best tips about London.
Lucy war eine tolle Gastgeberin. Völlig unkompliziert. Die Buchung und die Uebergabe hat bestens geklappt. Auch während dem Aufenthalt war Sie jederzeit erreichbar. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und sehr sauber. Uns hat es supergut gefallen. Und vorallem an einem tollen Ort gelegen. Wir würden auf jeden Fall wieder dort hingehen!
