The Brook Green Residence
Perks for the Parents
This family home has a great kitchen area and breakfast bar. Two separate bathrooms were recently re-designed with a contemporary finish - the master bathroom has tadelakt walls and a bath and shower. The loft conversion has a large double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a large glass window with view of London. There are restaurants, bars and cafés nearby with Westfields Shopping Mall 10 minutes’ walk away.
Why Kids Love it
This is an easy place to stay with small children, close to central London attractions and with a nice back garden. The owners have a 10-year-old daughter, and plenty of toys and books are available for older kids. Children can go to the kids movie on Saturday or Sunday morning in Westfield. There are tennis courts and playgrounds (Brook Green or Ravenscourt Park) within walking distance. Best for older children purely because babycare items, apart from a crib, are not provided.
Things to Know
There is parking space on the street with a meter or nearby Tesco offers 3 hours of parking free of charge. That said, car hire is not necessary with good public transport links nearby. The house is painted white (walls and floors) so guests are asked to leave shoes downstairs. There are no stair gates. Baby care items aside from a crib are not provided. The house before renovations had been featured in Elle Decoration, The Telegraph, House & Garden and Inside Out.
