The England that Shakespeare was lyrical about is within easy access of the city of London. You could visit Stonehenge on a day trip as well as drives or train rides to Windsor or Bath, Stratford-on-Avon is within easy reach, as is Warwick castle. If you are a gardener there are beautiful gardens available to the public everywhere in the area outside the city and since rivers abound, there are scenic routes to walk or hike or just drive to everywhere.
The glories of the city of light, Paris, are only 2 hours and 20 minutes away on the Eurostar from the newly remodelled St. Pancras station which is a wonderful sight all by itself. St. Pancras is only a 20 minute tube ride from the property,

"What a wonderful holiday rental in St. John's Wood!"
Dear fellow travelers,
My friend and I stayed at this Penthouse London Flat from March 7 through March 14, 2013. We took an airport car (arranged beforehand via email with Simply Airports) to the flat, where Siona met us. We received instructions on how to work all the appliances, including the gas fire in the lounge and the two tvs. This flat is so elegantly and comfortably furnished - the two beds were pure heaven! The kitchen has everything you might need; the whole flat has been thoughtfully arranged for the total comfort and convenience of guests. We found cheese, a welcome bottle of champagne, a bowl of fruit, and vase of tulips awaiting us. Thanks, Siona!
Staying in St. John's Wood had been a dream of mine, a very expensive and classy area (Paul McCartney lives here), but I never thought I could afford it, when up came the advert for this place. The photo accompanying the ad is very accurate, with the exception of a very comfortable couch in front of the fireplace instead of the two chairs. The tube stop was about an 8-10 minute walk from the flat; Abbey Road is very close, and every day we saw people doing the "Abbey Road Walk," imitating the Beatle's Abbey Road album and cover. Lots of restaurants, bistros, the post office, grocery stores in the area; everything one needs for a comfortable and relaxing stay with no hassle.
I wholeheartedly recommend this holiday flat - my son and his wife are already contemplating a trip to London and want to stay at this 5th floor penthouse flat. Yes, there is an elevator and there is a penthouse terrace which, in better weather, would have been a great place to have a drink and contemplate the view.
Siona, thanks for everything!

"Home Away From Home"
Thank you so much Siona for helping us with the flat and making our stay as enjoyable as possible. It was our "home away from home" for 2 weeks and we couldn't have asked for more. Had everything we needed and was perfectly situated to where we wanted to be. Thank you again for all your hospitality, would recommend the flat to all!
