The area has an impressive mix of cultures and the locals are friendly. The location is close to trains/buses/taxis, but commuting time can be 30-40 minutes depending on where in London you're headed to and time of day--just something to keep in mind when calculating travel time.The area is full of restaurants and cafes, and has The Shepherds Bush Theatre, wonderful music venues - The Bush Hall, The Shepherds Bush Empire, two cinemas and the famous Shepherds Bush Market. We are a 5 minute walk from an impressive new Mall (Westfield) with a cinema and food from all over the world as well as many shops. Our house is about 50 meters down a quiet street off from the hubbub of the Uxbridge Road. If you want to just walk 200 meters we have Bush Hall Dining Rooms a locally owned gorgeous restaurant where you would be equally comfortable on your own or meeting friends. 300 meters away is The Princess Victoria, a great gastro pub with good wines. A new sour dough pizza place has just opened close by and the local Eritrean restaurant, Red Sea, has recently had a great review.

I'm married with two children, so evenings are busy with cooking and homework. My husband is a musician and works from home. I work with contemporary art books, prints and ltd editions. We're really enjoying having guests to stay, we've met so many interesting people!
