Beautiful duplex on a lovely quiet street in London's fashionable Notting Hill!
Notting Hill is an area in West London, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The area is most well-known for Portobello Market (on Portobello Road, unsurprisingly), which runs every day except Sundays, and the Notting Hill Carnival, held every year on the last weekend in August.
Two of my favourite smaller London museums are both within walking distance of Notting Hill. Leighton House and Linley Sambourne House are excellent examples of everyday life in the 1890's in London. Any fan of the Victorian Aesthetics Movement in art/books/lifestyle should make one of these museums a must visit!!!
Of course, we couldn't talk about Notting Hill without mentioning the film and the BLUE DOOR Released in 1999 and starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts, the film did much to promote and raise interest in the area.It was the reason so many shops relocated here and why other long standing ones had to close as the area became more expensive.It really has changed so much in the last 20 years.The area has so many shops and it's a foodie heaven with delis,coffee shops,tea rooms galore!
About the Flat: The flat offers our guests plenty of space. The fact that it's split level allows a spacious environment to relax in.The kitchen is fully stocked with all the bits and pieces you'll need to ensure that cooking here will be a delight! Please take the shopping trolley out and stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables for your stay. The market is the place to head for this. There are also some excellent deli's within a few minutes walk. The closest large supermarket is 5 minutes away.
After a day out shopping one can simply enjoy the garden and a glass of wine and unwind.
The flat also has a power shower within a roomy bathroom.
Notting Hill is a great place to visit, from its cafes and restaurants, its market and boutique shops, to its many pubs and bars. It holds much in the way of entertainment, whatever your interest - be it shopping, dining, film, drinking, clubbing or more!
Things to do: Notting Hill still has three excellent independent cinemas and I would suggest visiting at least one of them on your visit. The Electric Cinema is closet to the flat and is a must see for any film lover.
If you're a lover of music than a visit to the original Rough Trade shop on nearby Talbot Road is a must see! You'll find a vast array of recorded music and their walls of plastered with posters/handbills from the past 50 years of music in London.If Jazz is more up your street than a trip to Honest Jon's on Portobello Road.
Books Books Books...yes this area still has some independent shops left. I mentioned that the Travel Bookshop is up for sale..but still trading(This is due to close Sept/2011)(now closed Dec 11). There's the excellent Books For Cooks on Blenheim Cres. Yes, it's all about food here and they also have special cookery evenings and plenty of authors signing their latest cookbook.
One can really walk to several places of interest. I walked the entire way into the West End last week...passing several wonderful attractions. The walk did take about one hour and 10 minutes but on a lovely day it made us realise why we love London so much! You can walk via Hyde Park and pass the Royal Albert Hall and the Albert Memorial...and head up to Wellington Arch and straight down Piccadilly into Soho/Covent Garden.One needs to remember to wear comfortable shoes though!
If you're booking during the summer season than an open air concert should be on the list of things to do. The flat is very close to Holland Park where one can listen and see Opera in the Park. This park is a pure delight...not as big as the other Royal Parks but it has a lovely Japanese Garden...not to mention the Peacocks and other wildlife.
PLEASE NOTE-WE DO OUR BEST TO KEEP OUR CALENDAR UP TO DATE.WE ALSO HAVE OTHER FLATS THAT COULD BE AVAILABLE.PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE DETAILS.

Spacious and well stocked flat in a fantastic and safe neighborhood
This is a very spacious flat in a great neighborhood with shopping, restaurants, outdoor market and transportation hubs all very convenient. Washer and dryer as well as basics for cooking and plenty of beds for larger groups. Property manager was easily accessible and responsive when we had an issue with hot water not working. Wonderful place for families to stay to spread out and have space.
Thank you! I'm so pleased to hear you really enjoyed Notting Hill and the flat!
Large apartment in amazing location
Finding a 3 bedroom apartment in this part of London was really helpful for our family of 5. The location of the apartment was utterly tremendous - a minute away from excellent Gail's bakery and all the great cafes, restaurants and shops on Portobello rd, and a really easy 5 min walk to the Notting Hill Gate tube. One day we even strolled from the apartment through Hyde Park, St James park into central London - fantastic!
The apartment itself is really well equipped -
having a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier was really useful. That said, we felt the apartment could benefit from a really good springclean and an upgrade of some of the old and tired furniture and carpeting. Despite the run down feeling, we still had a very good week here.
Thank you- I'm pleased you enjoyed the location and the flat.Thank you for your comments.I hope the flat was good value for money and hope to welcome you back on your next visit to the UK.
Great Location with all the necessities!
Its not fancy, but it is very functional! Had all the little things we needed which made it much better than a hotel. A great location, easy to get around, close to the grocery stores, and an easy 15 min walk to the underground. Loved having multiple bedrooms so our teens had some space. Worked great for us!
Thank you for your kind comments about your recent stay in Notting Hill. I'm so pleased you and your family really enjoyed your time at the flat and hope you choose to stay on your next visit to London.
Great place to stay at in London, good location, very comfort and great value for money
We stayed for 2 nights, when we came there was some one waiting for us with the house ready and clean. Its very close to the underground so very easy to go any where in london area. The house itself is very comfort, with beds for 6-7 ppl, a great solution for family with kids/ groups. Hot water all day and night, clean bathroom and toilets, wish fresh towels and all you need.
There is also a kitchen with electrinics and all, though we didnt cock or used it.
GREAT value for money with prime location!
Thank you! We're so pleased to hear you really enjoyed your stay.The flat does offer good value, especially for families. We hope you stay again on your next visit to London.
We are in love with Notting Hill!
Your flat is in a prime location, so many good eats and shopping. The close proximity to the tube and bus made excursions easy. The flat was just big enough for us (2 adults and 4 teens), it is tidy, and Benedicte was extremely helpful and welcoming. Thank you for a lovely introduction to England!
Thank you! I'm so pleased you loved the area and the flat. I'll make sure Bea hears about your lovely comments.
Great location, lovely property, fab service.
Really good location for exploring locally but also very handy for getting right into the centre too. The kids loved it (especially the pink house down the road). Property was really spacious and well equipped and Benedicte the lady who met us was really friendly and accommodating and even posted back my little girls teddy she'd managed to drop behind the bed! Would definitely recommend for either families or not as it would work well for both due to being on a surprisingly quiet street but very close to busier ones.
