Perks for the Parents

A truly unique mews house in the heart of the capital, just moments away from Hyde Park and the local horse stables. It sleeps 4. Families will love being so close to the park with so much green space to explore, while parents will appreciate having the sights of the city on the doorstep. There are countless shops and restaurants in nearby Marylebone (including Selfridges and the Disney Store), while the quirky waterside canal streets and houseboats of Paddington Basin are also within easy reach.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will love hearing the sound of horses on the cobbled streets during the day, something you don’t usually expect to hear in such a central part of the city. The equine residents stretch their legs in nearby Hyde Park (3 minutes’ walk), where children can also enjoy playgrounds, open water swimming in summer and ice skating in winter. Take a rental bike to cycle straight through Hyde Park to visit the museums of South Kensington: the V&A, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum are just 10 minutes by bike.

Things to Know

Standard check in: 4pm, check out: 11am. Early check in/out may be available on request for an additional fee. Security deposit is taken at check-in and released upon check out pending no damage. Please note that the lead guest (aged 25 or older) must be present at check-in with a matching ID and credit card. Stays at this home include a welcome pack, high quality linens and toiletries, 24/7 concierge support and the option to add tailored amenities and services, such as airport chauffeurs, grocery deliveries, additional housekeeping and more. There are 2 horse stables located on the same street - some noise will be heard from 7:30am every morning. Due to this close proximity, there may occasionally be a smell from the stables, which may be more prevalent in warmer months or when the windows are open. Pets may be welcome in this home on request (for an additional fee).

About the Location

This residence is located just behind Hyde Park in Paddington, central London. This area is nestled between Marylebone, Notting Hill and Maida Vale, so everywhere in the center of the capital is roughly under 20 minutes away. Lancaster Gate tube station (on the edge of the park) is 4 minutes’ walk. Paddington’s rail station is 5 minutes’ walk, for easy train access to Heathrow airport (30 minutes away, or 1 hour by car) as well as underground access to Regents Park for London Zoo (15 minutes). The pretty streets and street markets of Notting Hill are a short tube ride away, while Oxford Street is 15 minutes’ walk.

Accommodation Details

The house has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, set over 3 floors without an elevator. You’ll enter straight into the cozy living room, which is open plan to the dining area and kitchen. Spiral stairs lead up to the bedrooms: the primary bedroom has a private ensuite bathroom with a traditional clawfoot bathtub and the compact second bedroom has a modern 4-poster bed. Please note there is a utility room but the ceiling is under 6-foot high.

Style Notes

Charming cottage. The host has created a warm and welcoming space that blends classic and contemporary styles. Large windows allow the natural sunlight to pour through, creating a bright and airy space despite the compact size of this traditional mews-style house. We love the cozy Chesterfield armchairs, the eye-catching botanical wall mural in the second bedroom and the pretty blue paneling in the bathroom.
