HOUSE SLEEPS 11 NO EXTRA PERSON CHARGE
Our simply furnished low tech 5 bedroom Victorian terraced family home is located in a quiet street in lively Shepherds Bush. (Zone 2 on the tube) Shepherds Bush is extremely well linked by public transport to all of London's major attractions with direct tube and overground trains from Shepherds Bush to the West End, Kensington Palace, Hampstead Heath, Richmond Park, Olympic Park Stratford, Wembley Stadium, Buckingham Palace, Whitehall, Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Abbey, Horse Guards Parade, London's Earl's Court and Olympia Exhibition Centres, Heathrow and Gatwick airports, the seaside at Brighton, the M4 for West of England including Windsor and Eton and M40 for Oxford and the North of England.
This is our family home and we know that 'homestay' community members are always respectful of that fact. During school holidays we often plan to be out of town and at these times we are happy to make our whole house available to other family groups or mature groups of friends who would like somewhere homely to stay in London.
While we make sure our home is clean and tidy with clean linen and towels, however it a family house not a furnished rental apartment and therefore contains all the trappings of family life. We do leave our personal effects in the house but will clear a drawer or two in the bedrooms and leave coat hangers out for clothes storage. Guests are welcome to use condiments and spices in the kitchen and we only request that anything used is replaced if it runs out!
We will also leave an information leaflet that explains things about the house and area.
HOUSE AMENITIES include:
Clean linen and towels
Aga Rayburn range
Wireless internet access
Use of the washer/dryer
2 Bathrooms with baths and power showers.
MORE ABOUT SHEPHERDS BUSH & OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD
Shepherds Bush itself is a prime real estate location. It is among one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the capital with convenience stores and multi ethnic restaurants just around the corner from the house. Shepherds Bush Green is a short walk or even shorter bus ride away from our home and is a bustling metropolitan centre with market, theatres, cinemas, music venues, gyms, night clubs, and comprehensive shopping ranging from Tiffany to Marks and Spencer, Prada to the Disney Store. The BBC Television centre is just around the corner making this area popular with media types and we also have the FA premier division football club Queen's Park Rangers right on our doorstep for any football fans. Notting Hill and its famous antique market is also a walk, tube train or bus ride away and offers a daily produce market, Friday and weekend antique and vintage markets, cafes, boutiques, restaurants and bars. Holland Park, Kensington Gardens & Palace and the River Thames with its pubs and walks are all a short bus ride away.
Car drivers please note: There is on street pay and display parking here with charges made from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm of £2.10 per hour. Currently drivers have to pay in cash at the machine on the street which guests bringing their own car will need to factor in to their budget if they are staying with us on weekdays. Parking is free of charge from 5pm until 9am and throughout the weekends and bank holidays.
Overseas guests who plan to travel onwards around the UK by hire car after their London visit would be best advised to have their hire car delivered to the house on the morning of their last day to avoid additional cost to their trip. Public transport, foot or bike hire (London's bike hire scheme has bikes in Shepherds Bush which can be rented by the hour) is definitely the best way to visit London and its attractions. Shepherds Bush as previously stated has excellent transport links with two underground tube stations, an overground train station with links to Gatwick the Midlands and the North and the South Coast plus one of the largest bus hubs in the city. We also have a very reasonably priced mini cab company that operates from an office at the end of our street that offers competitive rates to London's airports. Gatwick Airport is easily reached by overground train from Shepherds Bush. Heathrow via tube from Shepherds Bush via Hammersmith to all four terminals and Stanstead Airport is easily reached via Easy Bus to/from Bakers Street with a direct tube journey to Shepherds Bush or airport bus to Liverpool Street with a direct tube also to Shepherds Bush.
Shepherds Bush is an ideal location for visitors wishing to explore London and the South of England or in town attending business or educational conferences.
