Perks for the Parents

This spacious family home in Clapham has rooms for all the family plus an office, French-inspired design and plenty of toys and books. Located close to gastro pubs and family-friendly cafés, it is bright and colorful, with design flourishes and distinctive lighting. The kitchen and dining area are ideal for a family meal (and there’s a farmer’s market at Clapham Common nearby) and the terraced garden is a lovely spot for a glass of wine on a summer’s night when the kids are in bed. With Clapham Junction nearby, day trips to the south coast are a piece of cake.

Why Kids Love it

This lovely family home has dedicated play spaces for the kids. It has a children’s floor with 2 bedrooms suitable for kids, made up with 1 single bed and 2 children’s beds plus plenty of toys. Cribs and high chairs are available for a small fee. Babysitting may be arranged by the concierge team for a fee. The property is close to lots of child-friendly restaurants and is really close - 0.4 miles - from Clapham Junction station, making it really easy to get around the city and explore its family areas. Local buses run to Battersea Park and Clapham Common for picnics and playgrounds. A kids pack with juice, snacks, organic toiletries, a cuddly toy, coloring and kids guide is available for £35.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights. Guests are greeted in person; there is a concierge team at your disposal 24/7 and you will receive an iPhone for use during your stay. The lead guest must be at least 25 years of age. No smoking. Stays of over 7 days receive a complimentary weekly housekeeping service; more frequent cleaning may be arranged on request for a fee. Check in: after 4pm, check out: 11am. Early check in and late check out may be possible subject to availability and fee. All bookings include WiFi, toiletries and area tips. Note that there are no stair gates. The home gets very poor phone reception but the WiFi works really well on all floors. This house is a well-loved family home with some signs of wear and tear. The owner’s dog usually lives here; while the property will be cleaned before your stay, it may not be suitable for those with allergies. There is no air conditioning; between June and September, fans are placed in each bedroom. Outside these months they are available on request.

About the Location

The residence is in Clapham, south London, close to Clapham Junction. At the end of the street you will find a high street which includes independent shops, restaurants, bars, pubs and supermarkets. Clapham Common is a short bus ride away and has a playground; Battersea Park likewise is great for kids and has playgrounds, a children’s zoo and a boating lake. It is easy to explore the city from here - trains run from Clapham Junction to Waterloo and to the south coast, reaching Brighton in an hour or less. There are tube stations in the vicinity - Clapham Common (reachable by bus) and Clapham North (again, accessed by bus). Gatwick airport is an hour away by taxi or 35 minutes by train, while Heathrow is 40 minutes by taxi. Car rental can be useful but it's not essential - taxis and Uber are plentiful.

Accommodation Details

This fantastic family home has 5 bedrooms and is set over 5 levels. It has a lower ground floor with a lounge, bedroom with double bed and ensuite shower bathroom, plus a garden. The next floor up has a spacious kitchen with dining area. The first floor has an office, and the floor above it has the master bedroom with a kingsize bed and a family bathroom with tub and shower. The 2 children’s bedrooms are on the floor above, one with a single bed and the other with 2 children’s beds. There is also a family bathroom with shower and tub. The top floor has a bedroom with double bed and an ensuite shower bathroom.

Style Notes

French fancy. Owned by a pair of Francophiles, this beautifully-designed home has French touches throughout, with wrought iron bed frames, antique mirrors and herringbone flooring as a start. Every corner has something unique to behold - the kids bedroom has a hanging birdcage and a blackboard wall for late night scribbles, while the roof terrace has patterned tiles and views of the London rooftops. We love the family kitchen, complete with modern lighting and a café-style table, the snug lounge with its hot pink rug, and the fabulous tiled ensuite bathroom at the top.
