The space

As you can see from the pictures our cute and cosy flat has lots of light. One double bedroom so perfect for a couple. The sofa turns into a bed so you could be up to four guests. This flat was our previous home so you still get a homely feeling. We've been told by guests that it is also a great work space and inspiring for creatives. Flat is located on a very quiet street.

Guest access

You will have use of the entire flat which is 1 double bedroom, 1 bathroom, kitchen and living room. Feel free to browse/borrow our books and also connect to the smart TV to play music, video, or use as a super size monitor. The wifi connection is good and the kitchen is well equipped as we love cooking. You will find essentials on arrival such as coffee, tea, sugar, milk and shower basics.

Interaction with guests

We live just round the corner so will usually be able to welcome you on arrival. We are contactable by phone/ and happy to answer questions and help you make your stay in London more memorable.

The neighbourhood

Kensal is fantastically located close to central London and surrounded by Portobello, Notting Hill, Paddington and Kensington. It has a trendy high street (approx. 8 minutes walk from the flat) with shops, restaurants, bars and cafés yet has managed to escape the curse of looking like so many other UK high streets that are littered with franchise outlets. There are 2 gorgeous parks within short walking distance (15-20 minutes) from the flat.

Getting around

For a visitor to London a key advantage is proximity to the closest station. Kensal Green underground (Bakerloo and Overground services) is only a 4 minute walk down the road. Kensal Rise Overground station is an 8 minute walk away. Transport links are excellent and one of the main reasons we moved to the area ourselves. Portobello road market is a 25 minute walk away, 9 minutes on the tube to Paddington, 11 minutes to Euston, 20 minutes to Oxford circus, 25 minutes to Soho, 30 minutes to Shoreditch, direct connections with Embankment (Southbank), Clapham and Richmond. There are plenty of bus services and, if you're the more active type, there’s a bike path running along the canal all the way to Paddington.

If you'd rather not use public transport there's always Uber. The average wait for an Uber pickup is around 6 minutes.

Other things to note

We've collected maps and other useful London guides and travel resources for guests to refer to. You'll find these on the shelves in the living room. We've also put together our own little neighbourhood guide with recommendations to some of our favourite places, eateries and events.

We can be flexible with check in and check out depending on other bookings. Car parking is available on request.

We were welcomed by David as we arrived in a taxi. So good after a long trip from Australia. The flat was more than we expected - bright, airy, clean and modern, equipped with everything to make our stay comfortable. The tube was within easy walking distance and the neighbourhood quiet. Thank you Nicky and David for making our stay stress free and enjoyable.

Very nice flat, in a quiet street. Only 3 mn walk to the underground and a direct line to down town. It's an ideal place to discover London. Nick is a very kind and thoughtful host.

Very good experience! The flat was exactly as the pictures. The area was nice and peaceful with some good pubs at walking distance. Nicky was very kind and approachable. Definitely I'll try to book it again on my next trip to London.
