Palace Gardens Terrace
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Enjoy a romantic London getaway in one of the most beautiful London streets - quiet, tree-lined, white terraced Victorian London...all just a stone's throw from the great shopping of High Street Kensington or the more funky fashions and trends of Notting Hill and Portobello Road. If walks throught the gardens are your thing Kensiington Gardens (adjoining Hyde Park) are also just around the corner.
Should you choose to venture out, just a little further afield you will find yourself in up-market Knightsbridge (Harrods), Chelsea (King's Road), seeing a West-End theatre production, hithcing a ride on the London Eye or visiting all the Westminster attractions (Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Parliament, Trafalgar Square - the list goes on and on).
We look forward to welcoming you to your London home-away-from-home. Available for four nights minimum.

This one bedroom ground floor flat offers spacious accommodation with full self-catering facilities is your home-away-from home. If you have to get some work done there is a desk location in the flat...our bathroom pod with dual use shower might add a bit of fun...and the very comfy double sofa bed can enable you to sleep up to another two people. This could accommodate one or two children but the space could become cramped with more than two people throughout a stay.
If requested, we can do a supermarket shop ahead of your arrival - to your list...
Provide champagne / prosecco, chocolates and flowers - ready for you to celebrate...
Arrange airport / rail station transfers...
Provide bespoke walking / cycling / bus tours just for you (suited to your interests and with only you in the 'group')
Just let us know...
|Further details outdoors|
There is a shared balcony / terrace area overlooking a private garden. This has BBQ and seating facilities available for guests.
Of course there is a welcome pack provided for you on arrival, the flat is fully cleaned every week and a maintenance firm is on call should any urgent item arise during your stay.
The South East England region
Whatever you want, London has it...history overload...start with the Museum of London to get a comprehensive overview of what London was like before London was here (pre-history) - and everything that has happened since. Go on to the Tower (1,000 years on, still a commanding presence above Traitor's Gate on the Thames), the Abbey, Monument (to the Great Fire of London), Guildhall, Royal Courts of Justice, Temple Church, the City (the Square Mile). Galleries and museums galore - many of them free - British Museum, National Gallery, Portrait Gallery...the Cabinet War Rooms where Churchill walked the corridors.
Walk the Thames Path - take a ferry trip to the Royal Observatory and Maritime Museum at Greenwich. Explore the ancient green belt forest of Epping or walk through Richmond Park (once a Royal Hunting Reserve). Ride a bike or take a canal boat along the Grand Union Canal.
Shopping - take your pick - up-market, funky, bargain basement, open air markets or collonaded walks...Camden Markets, Knightsbridge, Oxford Street or Piccadilly...
Nightlife in the West End, Chelsea or just locally, hopping every night of the week. Maybe the theatre takes your fancy - musicals, drama, comedy, a film premiere in Leicester Square...
Relax in the park - Regents Park, Kew Gardens, Hyde Park or Kensington Gardens
...and that is just London...expand you view to the South-East of England and you're going to need to stay quite a while - the Cinque Ports, Chartwell, Brighton Pier and the South Downs walks - visit enjoyengland.com to refine the details of your particular fantasy trip.
Central London/Zone 1
Notting Hill is an attraction in itself - Portobello Road markets and antiques and the incredible diversity of restaurants and nightlife on your doorstep is amazing - all culminating in the Notting Hill Carnival every August, one of the biggest cultural festivals in Europe.
Kensington is a little more sedate but definitely worth wandering through - Holland Park Opera is another annual attraction and, of course, the South Kensington museums are in walking distance - Natural History, Victoria & Albert, Science Museum and National Geographic Society. The Royal Albert Hall (BBC Proms and myriad other shows throughout the year) and the Albert Memorial are also very close by - as is Kensington Palace, former home of Princess Diana and open to the publc.

"Very nice flat, convenient location"
This is a really nice flat. The kitchen is well-equipped, the wifi is good, we were met by a very nice man who gave us all the information we needed. Great shower, plenty of hot water. Everything is very clean. We stayed there with a seven-year-old and an eleven-year old. Would not recommend it for kids under that age, because of the type of furniture, light colours that stain easily etc. Note that the walk from either tube station (Notting Hill and Kensington High Street) is a fair haul when carrying luggage, if staying here again I would splurge on a cab. Very nice neighbourhood, very quiet. Excellent and friendly information in the booking process!
Only negative thing is the beds, or rather, the mattresses. The pull-out sofa bed in the living room is terrible, and the fold-down bed in the bedroom is not very good either. Also, if you are staying here with kids, you would rather put them to bed in the bedroom to be able to use the kitchen/tv etc. in the evening, leaving the pull-out sofa bed for the grown ups. This could be made better by getting a couple of high quality top mattress to put on top of the beds. Also, there could be a spare single duvet in the cupboard, so two kids sharing a bed would not have to also sleep under the same duvet.
Thanks for your feedback on the beds. Hadn't realised the mattresses were showing their age quite so much. I will take steps to replace them.
All the best, Gen
