Notting Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Light, airy, 3 bedroom flat, close to Notting Hill, Easy to get to any location

Lovely, comfortable, clean, first floor flat in RBKC, North Kensington. 3 bedrooms, sleeps 6, near to the BBC. Quiet road, parks and transport on your door step. White City tube 13 minutes walk or take the bus. No 7 bus goes into the West End. No 70 goes to Knightsbridge.

A cosy, warm, comfortable, light and above all practical, tastefully furnished, first floor family apartment in W10 in the prestigious Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC). North Kensington. Zone 2.

3 double bedrooms (sleeps 6), 2 bathrooms, practical kitchen with dishwasher, electric oven, gas hob, microwave, large fridge and freezer. Washing machine. Pretty little west facing balcony out from kitchen. Wall to wall light wool carpet. Original wooden sash windows. Working gas fire in living room. Cotton linen sheets and towels provided.

Bracewell Road is a cherry tree lined street with two parks right on our doorstep. The smaller one 'Little Wormwood Scrubs', has an outdoor gym, adventure playground, and lovely walking spaces. The larger one 'Wormwood Scrubs Park' (top of the road turn left and cross road) is worth taking a walk around or even a run. Bracewell Road is a quiet, safe area with friendly neighbours.

All amenities are close by and within a few minutes walk. The No 7 bus at the top of our road goes to Portobello Market, Paddington Station (Heathrow Express) Oxford street and the West End. The No 70 goes direction Queensway and Hyde Park, or change onto the No 52 bus at Ladbroke Grove for Harrods, Knightsbridge, Victoria Station and The Tower of London. The undergrounds (2 different ones, 2 different lines) are about 12 minutes walk. Westfield, the biggest shopping centre in Europe, is 15 minutes walk or take the bus. It boasts amazing shops, cinemas and a huge selection of restaurants.

I suggest when you arrive at my house you obtain from the little shops at the top of my road, an Oyster Card. This is a 'top up card', costs £5 and essential for traveling around on London public transport and will save you money. Redeemable on your departure. Or buy a London Pass on-line.

A small supermarket (Tesco) is at the top of our road and sells the essentials, conveniently open from 6am to 11pm, 7 days a week. And a traditional English pub The Pavilion is 5 minutes walk. Great for a traditional Sunday lunch. There is also a chemist, a kebab house, Micks well known Fish and Chips shop, a hairdresser and nail bar.

There is a Thai restaurant really close by with delicious food, great takeaway too. And of course Portobello has lots of lovely places to eat and drink. The Market is on all week but the famous days are Friday and Saturdays.

If you're renting a car there are meters at the top of the road (£1.10 an hour, max stay 5 hrs), and a free parking road not far but it's usually very hard to get a space. Outside our house is not permitted to park Monday to Friday 8.00 - 18.30. Saturday 8.00 - 13.30

My husband and I recently moved to our flat in central Barcelona where we run painting and sketching holidays (la-terraza-atico), so my lovely daughter Saskia, who lives in our ground floor flat in the same building, will welcome you, tell you about the area and manage our family home whilst we are away.

Please note, Notting Hill Gate is about 1.7 miles/35 mins walk away. We are Ladbroke Grove area, North Kensington. Take a look at Google maps and you'll see exactly where we are.

PS: May I suggest a very good cab company should you need collecting from Heathrow or any of the other London airports. This cab company is cheap and reliable and I have been using them for years. They are called 'Just Airports' and can be found on the web, based in Wembley.

HOUSEKEEPING:

*Damage Deposit in cash £250 (or the equivalent in your own currency) to be given to Saskia on check-in and returned, provided no damage has occurred, on check out.

*Check-in after 16:00 (and before 22:30, unless discussed with me)

*Check-out before 11:00 please

*Please leave £40 for the cleaner in cash on your departure.

HOUSE RULES:

Please show your valid passport and the card you booked with to Saskia on arrivial, also please print off and bring with you the Rental Agreement.

No smoking in the house.

Close doors, especially front door QUIETLY and securely and respect the neighbours.

Keep noise to a minimum.

NO PARTIES!

No shoes indoors please (on white carpets, leave outside kitchen).

Be safety conscious. Lock windows with window locks before going out.

Comprehensive travel insurance is a MUST, to cover you for all eventualities including cancellation, illness and repatriation.

Questions welcome.

Many Thanks,

Angela

About Angela Raymonde-Cutler

I am happily married to Paul and a mother to two beautiful girls and now a grandmother. I spend most holidays in Ibiza where my family live and where my children went to school. I brought my family back to London in 1998 so that my children could finish their education and go to University in the UK.

I've been a freelance personal assistant to wealthy clients and as a hobby imported Italian, boutique wine to London. My husband Paul is an artist and for the present is tutoring guests in watercolour painting and sketching. We tutor these holidays in our flat in Barcelona, where i manage the catering and day to day running of our website. My children live in London and my family are spread around the globe.

Angela Raymonde-Cutler purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Angela Raymonde-Cutler chose Notting Hill

I bought my property thinking that i would refurbish, add the attic room, which i did, and then sell and move closer to Notting Hill Gate. But the property market moved up so quickly that i was priced out within the year! We bought the flat downstairs instead, now own the house and i'm so happy that i didn't sell as everyone seems to be moving down to my area!

What makes this apartment unique

My flat has a lovely, homely feel to it! And the fact that Saskia is so welcoming adds to the attraction.

It's incredibly easy to commute into the centre of town for tourist attractions, theatre, opera, shopping etc, but our area with Portobello Road and it's wonderful restaurants and cafes and clubs really has everything i need and want.

Family Vacation to London

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a flat that could accommodate 6 for a family vacation to London and this one turned out to be ideal. The listing was spot-on accurate and the flat was well-maintained and comfortable for a family. The kitchen appliances were well-kept as we used them often for meals in. The garden deck off the kitchen is a nice spot to have an early morning tea or a late afternoon / evening pint.

It's location relative to the Underground (White City Station / Central Line) & Bus lines (#220) was very convenient as we used both extensively during our visit to numerous London attractions. The pub around the corner was reasonably priced, good food and had friendly staff. The Westfield Mall is excellent, with movie theaters, mid-range and high-end shopping, and other amenities available.

Both Angela and Saskia were responsive to inquiries quickly and very helpful. This made logistics much easier for us in arriving and in getting around. I would strongly recommending booking this flat and I will re-book if I have the opportunity to return to London.

A Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

At a hotel, you can't sit around a cozy kitchen table in your pajamas with your kids while enjoying your morning coffee and planning the day's activities in London. Or have natural light streaming in through big picture windows and an adorable patio... Or have room to unpack several suitcases worth of clothing... This flat was perfect for these things and more! Neat, tidy, comfortable, spacious. Everything you'd need and more. Responsive and helpful owners. A little further out from all the London sites, but easy enough to get to by bus and tube, and worth the extra travel time. If we return to London, we will return to here. Felt like home after a week!

Great location. Any issues were promptly dealt with. Affordable London convenience!

  • 5 of 5

Perfection is impossible, certainly at a reasonable cost, but the owner was great at working with us to make sure that our needs were met. Top benefit is location: walking distance to grocery store, a few restaurants, and the tube. From there, London is yours. The flat is clean and has plenty of space, with all of the kitchen we needed. All 4 of us were happy, with enough space for privacy, but the common areas were inviting. Plenty of hot water, and no noise from neighbors. Nice of the owner to leave a few brochures of area (walkable) restaurants in the flat (the Thai place is the best of the bunch). We were glad for the "shoes off" rule, helping the whole place to stay clean. TV and wireless worked fine. Looks like a neighborhood on the way up, and a good base from which to see the rest of London. The White City tube stop is on the Central line, very easy to use. Would consider staying here again on a future London trip.

Lovely flat made perfect by graciousness.

  • 5 of 5

Loved, loved, loved staying in this flat. Plenty of room for 5 adults to spread out, a very nicely equipped kitchen for meals, lovely balcony and restful decor. It was a bit of a walk to the underground station, but the convenience of Tesco for groceries, the local restaurants and nearby park made up for the walk. If you have the time in your schedule, pick up food for a picnic and head down to the park. We went all over London using the bus and underground. The flat looks exactly like the photos posted here. I would and have recommended this flat to others.

The highlight of our stay was our interactions with Kaskia. She is absolutely delightful and treated us as if we were members of her extended family. She helped with information advice and cabs. She defines gracious hostess.

Great place for a toddler and her family!

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming house - multi-level, comfortable, lots of art and books, well- appointed kitchen, roomy. We (family of four and toddler) all had space and could eat together and cook - it's a great location. We loved having a Tesco so close-by, and got good at walking (or taking the bus quickly) to White City tube stop - and then central London just a few stops away.

The best thing about this house is Saskia (well, Angela also). They are warm and welcoming - lots of helpful information (and helped me realize I could easily order a stroller by "click and pick up" from Tesco), so easy to deal with (always answer emails, deposit returned promptly) - the things that make renting either a pain or a pleasure (the latter in this case).

Saskia went above and beyond and left us a few most cherished toys for the 2 1/2 year old, helped us locate the nearby and very good park, and answered any questions.

It was really like having a "London house" of our own for a week.
