Perks for the Parents

This stylish family home is just minutes from the bustling Askew Village area of Shepherds Bush, London and comes with a contemporary out-house and flexible bedroom options. Parents will love this stylish family home, which has been recently refurbished by the owners to include a whole host of luxurious modern comforts. Relax, play or host in the stunning open plan kitchen diner, or lounge in the amazing modern garden. The beautiful out-house in the garden is the perfect hang out for teens who need an escape - or visiting grandparents/nannies - so everyone has their own space to enjoy their stay.

Why Kids Love it

The kids bedrooms are stocked with books, games and playful interiors, and they'll love playing on the safe Astro Turf lawn. This is a very family-friendly area, with 3 or 4 green parks within a 15-minute walk offering playgrounds, sports courts and child-friendly cafes - the closest park is just 2 minutes away and the hosts have a city stroller to borrow. Ravenscourt Park (10 minutes' walk) is great for kids, with a large playground and a pond filled with wildlife - a lovely walking route to Chiswick High Street. Further afield, the kids will love a day trip to London Zoo at Regents Park or the indoor play center at KidZania Westfields (both around 30 minutes' drive). Older kids and teens will love checking out nearby Notting Hill and Portobello Market at weekends or visiting the new Design Museum at Holland Park (both just 15 minutes away).

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5-7 nights. Discount of 15% available for bookings of 2 weeks or more, the host will consider an additional discount for month long stays for August. Safety notes: the house is set over 3 floors and there are no stair gates. Street parking is available although car rental is not strictly essential. The main house and out-house both have underfloor heating and Sky Tv, Netflix, prime and Disney +. Hosts will accept bookings of up to 8 adults and 2 babies/toddlers although there are 2 additional double sofa beds in the top floor bedroom for flexible accommodation options. Weekly cleaning is available for an additional fee if required (£20 per hour). Access is required for gardening 2-3 times per week, at pre-arranged times to suit guests (guests do not need to be at home during this time as there is side access to the garden).

Style Notes

Edwardian villa. This recently-refurbished home is located on a pretty tree-lined road, packed full of period features. At around 1800 sq ft, this large family home features contemporary furnishings and modern interiors, together with fun playful kids rooms and an eclectic mix of accessories from the host’s travels around the world. We love the wall paneling in the primary bedroom, the traditional fireplace downstairs and the beautiful period bay windows which flood the rooms with light.

We love traveling and we travel every year numerous times.... My wife is Brazilian and I am from London. We now have Rafael our first child who is 1 years old!! Who has already been to Ibiza, Majorca, France, Portugal, New York... And soon to be Brazil and Argentina... We travel regularly to Ibiza, New York, LA, Brazil which are our favourite travel destinations. We joined Kid and Coe because Zoie (founder) and her Husband are very good friends of ours who we travel with often. They have exceptional taste and are amazing parents who also travel a lot so I trust their choices as much as ours

Shepherd's Bush, London

Sightseeing, shopping and playing

Conveniently located 30 minutes from London's most famous attractions (Buckingham Palace, British Museum, Covent Garden, the Natural History Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum and Trafalgar Square), Shepherd's Bush is a residential area in central London. Westfield, Europe's largest shopping centre is in its borough and there are several local parks great for kids, along with family-friendly eateries and good Tube connections.

The house was amazing. The beds were comfortable and lots of fluffy towels which is a big plus for us. We did lots of cooking for the kids in the big open kitchen. It was just a short distance to all the sightseeing we had planned. Wonderful hosts and a wonderful family vacation.

This house was amazing! It had everything our family needed to feel at home in London. The house was very spacious and having the back garden was a total bonus. We appreciated the extra room in the garden shed when additional family came to stay with us. The location is very close to transport links and in a lovely and quiet neighbourhood. Paul was very easy to work with and an all around great host!

We had an amazing month-long stay at this residence. The home is gorgeous and very comfortable. We were able to totally spread out, and there is even a separate guest cottage where my husband could do conference calls in a quiet space when needed. The owners left loads of toys and books for our kids, and could not have been more kind and helpful during our stay. If you want to live like a local in London - this is THE neighborhood to do it. The parks, the pubs, the vibe - all perfection. Thank you for sharing your home with us! We would recommend the Askew Village Residence without hesitation and would love to return on our next trip to London!

With a group of five we stayed for 7 weeks in the beautiful house, we felt very welcome and enjoyed the coziness. The house is located in a cozy street and in the immediate vicinity we found everything we needed: supermarkets, restaurants, bars, and cafes. For us, the highlight was the open kitchen with a nice view into the garden, I gave us enough space to cook, work and chill out at the same time! Since the kitchen is very well equipped, we often and gladly cooked ourselves! The rooms are equipped with everything you need, and if something was missing, the owner Paul was very eager to quickly arrange everything necessary. Paul and his family in general are the best hosts you can wish for - incredibly welcoming, flexible and kind all the way. We had an amazing time and would definitely come back. Thank you!

What a perfect stay! The house is stylish, full of quirky and refined details. It offers a great amount of space, where individual members of a family can isolatr, or common spaces to come together. The garden is lovely, so is the separate ensuite room at the back of it. Every request or question was answered very quickly, over the whole month of our stay. Warmly recommended property.
