This very proper English apartment is set in Kensington & Chelsea in central London. The decorations are in warm creams and subtle colours creating an elegant, understated atmosphere.
Your days at Lady Holland could begin with a cup of tea on the flower-filled balcony. No one overlooks you so it is very private. At the end of the day, you can curl up in front of a real fire.
Well-connected to all of London because of its good transport facilities, Lady Holland is an elegant and convenient base for your London holiday Close to Holland Park and High Street Kensington, this flat has both green spaces and shopping on its doorstep. You could picnic while you watch the peacocks in the park or indulge yourself in its boutiques. Or you could take a 10 minute stroll to the new billion pound shopping complex, Westfield London.
Kensington & Chelsea is the UK’s only Royal Borough. Princess Diana had her home here and you can see her dress collection at Kensington Palace. Alternatively, you might want to see the fabulous treasures of the Victoria & Albert Museum or catch a concert at the Albert Hall, home to the Proms, the world’s great classical music festival.
You are close to Shepherd’s Bush Station which has quick connection to all of London’s many tourist, cultural and shopping hot spots
Hello. We moved to London 2 years ago to look after our rental properties. Our middle daughter is helping us with the business while going to school studying sports science. Our youngest daughter goes to middle school here and our oldest daughter is getting her masters degree in business in Pamplona, Spain. We own a few flats in London and rent them out to people from all over the world! We are picking up many phrases in many languages as we go along. It's an interesting business and we enjoy it. Regards, Liz and Carl Risberg
Carl and Liz Risberg purchased this apartment in 2007
I saw this flat on Foxtons website and fell in love with it immediately. It is located in Kensington & Chelsea which is a very lovely area of London. It is close to Shepherd's Bush Tube Station which gets you on the central line. Incorporated into the tube station is the largest shopping mall in Europe called Westway. Holland Park and Hyde Park are in walking distance.
This flat has it all. It has a gas fireplace which is lovely to have on in the winter months. It adds such a wonderful cozy atmosphere. The balcony off the kitchen is charming. In the summer months the balcony is bursting with pots of flowers! The bedrooms are very quiet at night and windows can be opened. The newly renovated bathroom is lovely. It is done in marble with a walk in shower and power shower. The flat is very private being on the 4th floor.
Great location (bus lines C1 and 9 and tube) and very clean. Hosts were absolutely wonderful! 6 people would be a tight fit; 3-4 more reasonable. Photo of front room makes it look bigger than it is. Spacious shower. Relaxing balcony.
Staying at the Lady Holland apartment was a little bit of everything (i.e. good, bad, etc.). I will say first and foremost that the owners of this flat were extremely friendly and helpful, which in the end made the experience an overall good one. Their daughter was great in getting us setup for the stay and was very accommodating. That being said, we have been to London before and also live in Europe, so I'm sure that we didn't depend on them as much as a first-time visitor to Europe would. I would consider this apartment to be average in comparison to others that we've stayed in, it will comfortably sleep 4 but I think 5-6 would be a stretch. We were 5 total (3 adults & 2 small kids) and it was about the right amount of space. The location of the apartment is such that you can get to all the main sites in London (Westminster, Buckingham, etc) in approx 30-40 mins, which is good for a big city. The traffic noise from Holland Street is pretty much non-existent due to the double pain windows & being up on the 4th floor. With being on the 4th floor the stairs can be a challenge, I am in good physical shape & after a long day out touring they were daunting. But if given the choice between street noises (Lord Holland apt) or stairs (Lady Holland apt), I would opt for the stairs. The interior of the apartment is decent; I would say the positives were that it had everything we needed, beds, kitchen stuff, a couch ? and plenty of windows …. the negatives would be that the apartment smelled a little funny (maybe just old building smell, not sure) and there were several little things falling apart (bathroom tile, mirror held on by scotch tape, etc). I guess a lot of this is just normal wear & tear w/ visitors going in & out year after year but it should be fixed. My biggest impression of the apartment is that it has the potential to be nice; it just needs a good comb through to fix the little details. One last note would be that although the cell phones are stated to be complimentary (which they are) they are only complimentary for incoming calls, not outgoing. So if you use the phones to call each other, the one placing the call will be billed and phone calls are expensive. We attempted to place 6-7 calls and it was about $1.50 per call. I’ve already mentioned to the owners that the way it’s all pitched to the costumer is a little vague, so I hope they make clear on how it all works.
