The space

It is in a very quiet location and you won't hear the London traffic!

We do have a small dog who lives and travels with us; she is a non-allergenic dog as she doesn't drop hair.

This is a gorgeous cottage very close to several tube stations, shops, restaurants, cafes and parks. It was so peaceful that when we woke up in the morning and heard the birds singing, we felt that we could be in the countryside not in London! Catherine was very good at communicating with us and we had all the information we needed to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The cottage is so lovely, warm, homely and clean. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped and we had a wonderful romantic dinner on New Years Eve at the house before going out to see the fireworks at midnight. The bed was so comfortable we slept very well. It was a home from home and we hope to come back again to stay soon. Thank you so much Catherine for being such a great host.

We had an excellent stay at Catherine's place. Her house is lovely, very cosy and we felt like home. Catherine is very kind and super reactive if you have a question for her. The neighborhood is beautiful and the location is ideal: walking distance from Portobello, Holland Park, 2 different lines of subway, 30 minutes from Saint Pancras... We definitely recommend her house and would be very pleased to come back.

Beautiful, homey, clean and wonderful house! I loved everything! If you love cooking, you will find your place in the kitchen, fully equipped with everything you need, trust me, everything :-) big dining table and comfortable sofa bed, cute garden at the back of the house. I spent my weekend with my pregnant friend so it was just perfect place for us, quiet, very family and cosy. Thank you Catherine and her family for letting us stay and for the nice present they left for us xxx you are perfect host! Daniela

We had a great time at Catherine's beautiful house. Great location, communication and facilities. Lovely garden, very relaxing and surprisingly quiet, despite being very central and convenient for London. Would certainly stay there again, if it was free!

We had a wonderful stay at Catherine's home in Notting Hill. The house is in a great neighborhood. It's a short walk to a couple different Underground stops, as well as various restaurants and Portobello Road. It's a little further from the main sites. We used Uber going to and from farther destinations without an issue. The home itself is very cozy and well appointed. Catherine was kind enough to stock a few items for us for breakfast. There were very easy instructions for use of the house as well as a welcome packet and Oyster cards for us to use during our visit. Catherine was very easy to communicate with and made the whole experience very easy. I would highly recommend staying here.

We have spent a very nice week and a nice Christmas in Catherine and David's home. They welcomed us upon our arrival. Their house is comfortable and quiet. Notting Hill is a beautiful district. The access is easy to go to the center of London. We chosed to take the bus to move in London. It’s a good idea to discover the city. Our daughter adored. We visited the natural history museum, the National Gallery. We went in Hyde Parc and Saint James Parc. We walked in London to discover this beautiful city, which is quite illuminated for Chrismas. Many thanks to Catherine and David.

Catherine e' stata molto gentile, disponibile e pronta a rispondere alle nostre richieste. La casa si trova in una zona molto tranquilla e silenziosa, a pochi metri da un negozio di alimentari e vicino a un parco. In pochi minuti si arriva a Holland Park Av., una via principale, e da lì ci si può spostare con i mezzi pubblici. Si raggiungono facilmente a piedi sia Portobello road sia Kensington Park. La casa è graziosa e accogliente; se volete vivere come dei veri londinesi, questa e' la soluzione migliore per voi!
