About Lorna Bourke

I have been letting the apartment successfully for several years and have plenty of good reviews to share. It has been highly rated by Trip Advisor. Notting Hill London is very convenient and fashionable and the apartment is very near public transport and Portobello Road antiques market.

Lorna Bourke purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Lorna Bourke chose North Kensington

I originally bought the apartment for my younger daughter and I lived nearby elsewhere in Notting Hill.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment in fashionable Notting Hill is completely self contained with a pretty garden and is only a few hundred yards from public transport (Ladbroke Grove tube which is on the Hammersmith & City line - convenient for Heathrow and Heathrow express from nearby Paddington). Buses, taxis, local restaurants and shops (Tesco and Sainsbury's local which are both open until midnight) are only a hundred yards away. The famous Portobello Road antiques market is just one minute's walk and West End theatres and restaurants are no more than a 15 minute tube journey.

The apartment has a wide screen smart TV with Sky Sport HD as well as broadband, Bose CD player and Ipod dock. The kitchen is fully equipped with a separate dining room and a small study. All linen and cleaning is provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Lorna

We have just arrived back in Cornwall. Your apartment was delightful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We seem to have had a hectic time-we went to the opera at Covent Garden (wonderful), the PRB exhibition at the Tate Britain and saw a film at the most luxurious cinema we have ever been to, the Electric Cinema on the Portobello Road! And thankyou for the bottle of wine

Best regards

Mike (Wild)



Dear Lorna,

We wanted to tell you it was a real privilege to stay in your well-appointed apartment! It was exactly 'us', from the lovely dining area to the bath, the artworks, the light! The kitchen was such fun - it had absolutely everything we needed - we may have used all your plates! Best regards Meg (Nowack)

Charming little home, cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for about 10 days - it is so very convenient, only a couple of minutes from the tube stop, so we were able to get into the city easily and quickly. The apt. is so nicely decorated, and the kitchen is well appointed, too.

Lovely Flat in Notting Hill/North Kensington

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend Lorna’s apartment while staying in London. We arrived to find a lovely welcome note from Lorna, the heat had been turned on and was just right, there was fresh milk in the frig, and tea and coffee were available for brewing. The apartment was filled with books, music, art, and comfortable furniture. We felt right at home. The kitchen is adequately stocked for all your cooking needs, including a washer/dry and dishwasher, gas oven and cooktop, and a microwave. The electric teakettle made brewing tea and coffee easy in the morning. The bathroom has a lovely shower and a separate deep tub for soaking those tired muscles after a long day of walking around the city! Plenty of plush towels are provided. My favorite room was the dining room – it felt as if I were sitting in the garden even though I was inside. The apartment is quiet despite it’s proximity to a busy road. There are several grocery stores (Tesco and Sainsbury) and restaurants within walking distance. Portobello Road Market is only a block away. The neighborhood is very walkable. The Tube station (Ladbroke Grove) and bus stop (52, 452) are 1-2 short blocks away. We used the Underground to/from Heathrow and the trip takes less than an hour with only 1 transfer. We recommend the 7-day Oyster Card with unlimited travel. We would highly recommend this little gem in Notting Hill/North Kensington and would stay here again without hesitation.
