8410-Riverside 5 Bed Townhouse, near Kensington
from £779 /night help
Townhouse | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Fantastically located top floor apartment on one of London's most loved streets. Visitors and Londoners alike flock to the Portobello Road to take in the cosmopolitan mix and atmosphere of the neighbourhood. The apartment is situated towards the top of the Portobello Road, the more residential end. While you are on the Portobello Road, the entrance to the apartment is at the back, so you gain privacy.
A bright, modern sitting room sits at the front of the property, facing the road, where you can keep an eye on the activity below. There are a couple of comfy sofas, a small dining table, an ornamental fireplace and a big flat-screen television. The kitchen is at the back of the property and has all of the equipment you'll need to prepare meals at home. There is also a small built-in table for a quick cup of coffee or a spot of breakfast.
The master bedroom has a double bed and ample storage, with a mirror-fronted wardrobe. The second room has a single bed and an additional fold out single mattress. Upon request, a single mattress can be set up in the sitting room to sleep a fifth guest.
The bathroom has a bath (with shower extension overhead), loo, sink and heated towel rail.
Notting Hill is a cosmopolitan area known for its summer carnival and perhaps more famously, Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts in the film of the same name. The area has a contemporary reputation as a fashionable and affluent area, known for attractive terraces of large Victorian townhouses, high-end retail and restaurants – perfect for families of all sizes and ages.
Portobello Market is a classically British attraction. With stalls of antiques, jewellery, furs, fresh street food and often performers amid the neighbouring upmarket shops.
Walk down into the heart of Notting Hill, along the Portobello Road, and refuel in one of the charming cafes with a cappuccino and some artisan treats, or perhaps choose one of the many restaurants for an impressive dining experience. For cinema with a difference, the Electric Cinema offers leather armchairs, footstools and cashmere blankets.
For travelling further afield, Ladbroke Grove is less than a 5 minute walk with access to the Hammersmith & City and Circle lines. From here you'll reach the huge Westfield shopping centre, at Shepherd's Bush, in under 10 mins (you can also catch a bus taking you roughly the same amount of travel time); Bond Street and Oxford Street in around 20 mins and Kensington in around 20-25 mins.
Guests should note this apartment sits on the second floor (up 2 flights of stairs) and there is no elevator, in keeping with these Victorian terraces.

The London region
On the Thames in West London, Hammersmith is a beautiful area, with a countryside feel. It is perfect for many of London's wealthy families. There is a choice of riverside eateries to explore, including The Dove pub, which was frequented by Ernest Hemingway and Graham Greene or The Crabtree which has a terrace overlooking the Thames and is popular in the summer months with people enjoying a Pimm's and the splendid views.
There are many other restaurants in the area, as well as boutique shops and cafes, or head to the Farmer's Market at Lyric Square on a Thursday for fresh products. The area is rich in cultural attractions, with four theatres: the Riverside Studios, the Bush Theatre, Curtains Up at the Baron's Theatre and finally the Lyric Hammersmith, which is considered one of the most notable theatres outside the West End. It is also home to the Hammersmith Apollo, which plays host to major concerts and stand up comedy acts.
The William Morris Society at Kelmscott House is one to visit, as is the Westfield Shopping Centre in nearby Shepherd's Bush, with hundreds of shops and restaurants. For the children, the London Wetland Centre will bring splashes and laughter, or nearby neighbourhood Barnes, just over the river, is very picturesque. There are a number of exceptional 18th and 19th century buildings in and around its historic village, and the area boasts a rock and roll history with the former Olympic Studios on Church Road playing host to many of rock and pop's greatest stars throughout the decades: from The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, right through to modern day Coldplay and Madonna.
