The beautifully decorated bedrooms are quietly situated, mostly at the back of the house, and have loads of hanging and other storage space. The one bedroom that is at the front of the house is on the top floor and has double glazing, even though the street outside is neither noisy nor busy. The bedroom floors are all well carpeted, the beds are very comfortable, with mattress and pillow protectors as well as lovely linen and bedspreads. Pillows, duvets etc. are of high quality. There are bedside lamps and dimmer switches - and three of the bedrooms have TVs. One of the two bedrooms on the lower ground floor as its own sitting room as well as kitchenette and a walk-in shower/WC and is wonderful for an older couple who can manage just one flight of stairs. The small ground floor bedroom with adjacent WC is great for someone with very limited mobility. Baby equipment includes cots, bed-guard, baby-listening, high chairs, a stair gate, many children's books, toys, DVDs.
The bathrooms and cloakroom are beautifully fitted. One has hand painted tiles depicting scenes from Charles Kingsley's famous Victorian story, THE WATER BABIES. All except one of the toilets, bathrooms and shower rooms has outside windows. All are newly tiled and maintained, with high quality fittings The showers are powerful (many of our guests have praised them!) and there is plenty of hot water. The top floor bathroom has a roof window as well as an ordinary window, so you can lie back at look at the stars! There is a WC on every floor, or on the half-landing, so easy access for all guests.
Dining table is left folded out to seat 12. Can be reduced in size. There are two high chairs.
The study is light and airy, and children love to play in it - and on the landings and stairs and in the nooks and crannies of this fascinating house.

The remarkable thing about 'Pimlico' (the area in which our house is), is that it is like a village, and yet it is right in the heart of perhaps the greatest city in the world. Neighbours know each other; our quiet street contains many family houses and has an active residents' association, the people in the shops are friendly, and yet it's cosmopolitan and fast-paced. In Pimlico you can be peaceful, yet never feel that life is passing you by. . .
Landline telephone available for rentals longer than 3 weeks.
House provided brilliantly well cleaned. You must leave it in good order.
Bedlinen/towels etc: included in the price
The South East England region
London: financial centre, cultural centre and tourist centre - more world heritage sites than any other city. Weather variable - but who cares!?! There's so much to see and do that you couldn't fit it all into a year if you went somewhere new every day . . .
