Just got back to the US after spending 11 nights here. Five minutes walk from the Central Line tube station means quick and easy access to Central London (approx 30 mins). A terrific pub at the end of the street (1 min walk), and many good restaurants and a large supermarket are within 5 minutes' walk.

The cottage is cute and we were glad of the washer, although a dryer would have been more convenient than hanging laundry in the conservatory. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had what we needed, and the TV and wifi kept us in touch with the world outside. We had a very enjoyable stay.
