About This Listing
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.
Other Things to Note

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.
We had a fantastic holiday at Lucy' flat. Lucy was a great host, she responded us very quickly and answered all questions we had. The flat is in the good location which is convenient to many restaurants and supermarkets. The flat is bright, cleaned and comfortable. Highly recommend to stay here.
Let me start by saying, selfishly, I want to keep this place a secret so that it is always available to me. ;-) Lucy's flat was absolutely charming, and the location was perfect! Notting Hill is so lovely and everything you need is within walking distance. If you decide to venture out, the tube and bus are just a few convenient steps away. The flat is really ideal for a couple or single person. (just note if you are two people (not couple) that the extra bed in the loft is not very comfortable or easily accessible, and the morning light shines in very early in the summertime- so my friend and I shared the master). We explored many of Lucy's restaurant suggestions, which were very helpful and did not disappoint. (Our favorite was Durbar- Indian Cusine- yum!) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, Lucy was an excellent host, and I hope to come back and stay here again.
Lucy was very welcoming and very happy to answer questions and make us feel at home. She also left recommendations for restaurants and shops in the area which was helpful and a great little touch. The flat was very clean and well presented and the private garden was a fantastic bonus! Will definitely be back!
Lucy's Notting Hill Loft provides the quintessential and perfect London experience. I booked this for my parents who were visiting me in London and they loved everything about their stay in the house - beautiful space, great list of suggested activities and Lucy on hand for any need they had. (I myself would love to live in the apartment!).
Our stay in Lucy's flat was great! It is a great space and we enjoyed the private garden in the back. The neighborhood is really nice and we were able to walk to several different restaurants nearby that were all great. Lucy was really great and even stayed to meet us when we ended up running later than expected! We really enjoyed our few days here!
