Design House in a Quiet Cul-de-Sac
|Address||Barlby Gardens, W10 5LW London, United Kingdom|
Owned by a very successful film director, the aesthetic luxury and homeliness of the interior is a testimony to the owner's many years of experience behind the silver screen. A stay here will leave you inspired and hopefully full of wonderful memories from this eclectic city.
The front door is also set back from the road by the gorgeous, private front garden. Water features, birds and an abundance of colour surrounds as you relax on the garden chair whilst watching the evening sun set over Notting Hill.
The welcoming combination of traditional soft furnishings and beautifully lit, colour-blushed interior design pampers the senses and inspires the soul.
The house is very quiet and is blessed by having no neighbours to the rear. Opening the patio doors at the back to link the patio with the kitchen and dining areas makes for a wonderfully peaceful alfresco ambience. A far cry from the London buzz. And the buzz… the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is home to some of the most interesting and enjoyable attractions in London.
From the ever-hip King's Road in Chelsea to the more recently popular Notting Hill and Portobello; the shopping heaven that is Kensington High Street & Harrods; the fantastic greenery and scenery of Kensington Gardens; to some of London's top museums, located in South Kensington. St Marks park, only 5 minutes walk away, houses a fantastic water park and adventure playground for the kids, which is overlooked by a charming outdoor café for the less energetic.
The wonderful local bars and eateries are a treasure easily discovered and a short tube or bus ride is all that separates you from the glittering delights of the West End and London city center.
10 Minutes walk to Portobello Market (the World's largest antiques market), short bus ride to Notting Hill and Westfield (Europes largest shopping centre) and just 5 minutes walk from St Marks Park. There is even a gated communal garden between the house and the busier Barlby road which keeps the place quiet and makes a great play area for the kids.
House rulesThis is a private and peaceful opportunity that I am offering to share with you. When you come to stay please be respectful of all that is offered and treat it within the bounds of normal social decency.

Great room, great location, we did everything by bus from the end of the street! The house is beautiful, decorated with taste and originality, very well equipped, comfortable beds. This is our first experience in housing or other that Hotel aparthotel and we are seduced by the warm and friendly side of the concept. Everything was at our arrival, laundry soap, toilet paper ... and there is the basic groceries, tea ... Peter is adorable and was present when we arrived, available whenever needed. The children just loved the house, and if we go back it will be here! Thank you!
Séjour génial, emplacement idéal, nous avons tout fait en bus depuis le bout de la rue ! La maison est superbe, décorée avec goût et originalité, très bien équipée, lits confortables. C'est notre première expérience en logement autre qu'hotel ou apparthotel, et nous sommes séduit par le côté convivial et chaleureux du concept. Tout était présent à notre arrivée, lessive, savon, papier hygiénique... et il y a la base en épicerie, thé... Peter est adorable et était présent à notre arrivée, disponible dès que besoin. Quant aux enfants ont tout simplement adoré la maison, et si nous revenons ça sera ici ! Merci !
Hello Peter and Rowan,
it was very hot in this week when the prince has been born and we were very glad and confident to have a break from sightseeing and shopping in your house in Barlby gardens with a small garden, a nice leafy bower. It was a pleasure to live for some days in this rooms, arranged and furnished with fantasy and taste. Great to go by bus No 23 through Notting Hill to Piccadilly Circus, A nice way for low-price-sightseeing. Portobello Market is only 5 minutes to walk, great! It was easy to get the key and give it back, it was clean and the kitchen was full equipped, maybe you will buy some more spoons?! Thanks for all!
Beautiful cottage with a romantic little garden bouquet to welcome on the dining table, beautiful details in the design of the apartment, everything was clean. Great location, short walk to Portobello Market. Ideal for 4 people for 6 people possible, but there is only one bathroom.

Warm house, decorated with taste and humor. And it does not hurt, clean and well equipped.
