Perks for the Parents

This terraced house in zone 1, minutes from central London, has lively decor and a child-friendly garden and is well placed for visiting the city’s main sights and enjoying life like a Londoner. The garden is safe and has artificial turf. The house itself is large and has Hypnos beds so everyone will get a good night’s sleep; a crib can be added for a baby. The compact kitchen at the front of the house has everything you could need and there is a large dining table for family meals.

Why Kids Love it

This house is great fun - every bedroom has a theme, from a 1960s room, a dog and horses room, a royal room and a Laura Ashley room. It is fun to explore and choose one to suit you. It is only a short walk (400m) to the Elephant and Castle tube station to reach central London - easy even for little legs. The Imperial War Museum is a 15-minute walk away, and the banks of the Thames, with Lambeth Palace Gardens and views of Big Ben are around 20 minutes’ walk away.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 1 day, but can depend on the season. The house is set over 2 floors and there are stair gates provided. Car rental not necessary - there are reliable public transport links (bus and tube) within a short walk of the front door. It is 50 minutes from Gatwick and Heathrow airports.

About the Location

This house is in Elephant and Castle, zone 1 of central London. While not a classic London neighborhood, it is very convenient for reaching the city. It can be a little gritty and is characterized by a large roundabout and major traffic routes but benefits from local independent shops and good bus routes.

Accommodation Details

This 4-bedroom house is laid out over 3 floors with a kitchen and lounge with dining area downstairs, and all bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs. Each bedroom has a kingsize and a twin bed in it. There is a garden with artificial turf. Note that while it has enough bedrooms to sleep up to 12 plus a baby, the size of the living space means that it might suit fewer occupants more comfortably.

Style Notes

Quirky and modern. This 1950s London terrace is decorated with an eye towards the flamboyant. Flowers roam across the Laura Ashley bedroom wall; a lava lamp bubbles in the 1960s bedroom and dogs and horses canter around the animal-themed room. The lounge has prints of the Beatles from their psychedelic era and the ‘royal’ bedroom has crowns on the wallpaper and union jack pillows.

Elephant and Castle , London

Brutalist architecture and great transport links

Elephant and Castle is not going to win any beauty parades, but, as local students would agree, it is a great location if you want to be in the heart of the city. Stroll to the Imperial War Museum for an immersive take on Britain at War and excellent changing exhibitions, walk a little further to view the Thames, and Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament beyond it, or jump on a bus or tube to reach central London’s markets, museums, famous squares and beautiful parks.
