Perks for the Parents

A delightful period cottage on the borders of Maida Vale and Queens Park, with all the home comforts you need for a relaxing stay in the city. It sleeps 6. Whether you’re sightseeing as a family or working in the city, this home-from-home is cozy and inviting - the perfect retreat from the bustling, vibrant West London surroundings. There’s plenty of space to cook at home, or plenty of options for eating out nearby. With bus and tube stations in easy reach, it’s a short trip into the heart of the city.

Why Kids Love it

The house doesn’t come with toys or books for kids, but there are 3 double rooms for flexible sleeping options and a top floor room which could work well for teens or a nanny. It’s less than 5 minutes’ walk to Queens Park Gardens playground and there are sports courts, skate parks and green spaces surrounding the popular Golborne Road area (10-15 minutes’ walk). Older kids and teens will love the vibrant street markets in Portobello and Notting Hill.

Things to Know

A travel crib is available on request. Complimentary toiletries are included. Sorry - no pets, no parties and no smoking. Check in: 3pm. Check out: 10am. Heathrow airport is around 45 minutes by car or train.

About the Location

The property is located between Maida Vale, Queens Park and Kensal Rise in north Kensington. Lined with independent shops and cafes, you’ll find everything from antique shops to authentic Moroccan grills as you wander through this quirky, eclectic neighborhood. It’s 15 minutes’ walk to Portobello Road and 5-10 minutes’ walk to the popular cafes and restaurants of Kensal Rise. The nearest tube stations are Queens Park (15 minutes), Kensal Rise (11 minutes) or Kensal Green (15 minutes). Ladbroke Grove and Westbourne Park are also within walking distance and there are bus stops at the end of the street.

Accommodation Details

This residence has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, set over 3 floors. Downstairs, there’s an open plan living/dining room (with a table for 6) which leads to the kitchen. Bi-fold doors open out to the private garden, where there’s an outdoor dining table. Upstairs, the primary bedroom boasts a kingsize bed and a dressing table/desk. The second bedroom on this floor has a kingsize bed and the top floor bedroom also has a kingsize bed. The bathroom (on the middle floor) has a walk-in shower and separate bathtub.

Style Notes

Classic cottage. Natural light cascades through every room - especially within the spacious open plan living and dining space - and a muted, earthy palette adds to the feel of light and space. Vibrant art pieces can be seen throughout, providing a colorful contrast. We love the sage green wall paneling, the natural wood flooring and the beautiful period fireplace in the living room.
