About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 )

.....Don't risk a new listing and inexperienced hosts! We have been sharing our flat with visitors for 12 years - all 4-5-star ratings from happy guests! This is what one visitor from Washington, USA had to say -

'I cannot tell you absolutely perfect the accommodations were...... (Your caretaker) was so amazing and nice.....the location could not have been more amazing..... Quiet, clean, and close to everything you could want to do in London .....your flat really made my first trip to the UK that much more enjoyable. It was fantastic!'

THIS is your perfect London base - - a cool yet cosy, HUGE for London ( over 900 sq ft/ 90 sq meters) space in a great location. Completely charming flat on first floor (2nd to US guests) of period building overlooking glorious Bishops Park (Google it!) in Fulham. SLEEPS 4 plus baby in two bedrooms, a queen-size inflatable bed for the living room, and A CRIB!. PLEASE NOTE to reach flat from lobby there are 18 steps up, landing break in middle, sorry, no lift/elevator

Please note 2nd bedroom is beautiful but tiny - there is only one twin bed; if the inflatable bed goes on the floor there is no room to walk around. Suggest using sleep-on couches in living room or putting inflatable bed there or in main bedroom.

AFTER AUGUST 31st the flat is available only for long-stay guests - 28 days or more. Thank you

WHY STAY IN FULHAM?
Fulham is an 'inner 'burb', an upscale, safe neighbourhood just 4 miles (in straight line) from Marble Arch, close enough to enjoy the sights but far enough away for a little quiet time. In the immediate area is a huge park with River Thames-side walks, nice homes, good shops and restaurants.

FROM THIS WONDERFUL FLAT....
TOURISTS enjoy easy access to London sights via bus or Tube
WALKERS can enjoy the miles of River Thames towpath ..
CYCLISTS...the London Bike-Share is right outside!.... "
FOODIES will savour the lovely tow-path walk to award-winning River Cafe, great local gastro- pubs and Farmers' Markets
SHOPAHOLICS will appreciate easy access - one bus ride - to the huge Westfield London mall at Shepherds Bush ...or to the boutiques of Chelsea's famous King's Road .SOCCER FANS can stroll to Craven Cottage, home of Fulham Premier Division football club, in a few minutes....
HISTORY BUFFS can tour the nearby Bishops Palace, 16thc former home of the Bishop of London .....
KIDS can run crazy-wild in the beautiful Bishops Park.....
TENNIS PLAYERS can sharpen their game on the newly-renovated courts right across the street- even at night under floodlight....
DRIVERS.... no car necessary - actually discouraged! - but if you must, driver can park on the street outside using our special visitors permit at a cost of GBP 1.80 per hour....

BUSINESS TRAVELLERS - We haven't forgotten you!. There is free, superfast and unlimited broadband with Wi Fi - max connection speed 76.7 Mb, max upload speed 20Mbs.

ARRIVING AT HEATHROW? Not close but a super-easy journey by Piccadilly Line tube to Hammersmith then quick bus or taxi ride to flat

NEAREST TUBE - PUTNEY BRIDGE (the green tube line which ends in WImbledon) .. 10/12 min pleasant walk from flat .... BUS STOPS 4-8 mins walk from flat ... total door-to-door journey time to Central London 25/60 minutes depending on traffic/crowds.


INSIDE THE FLAT... high ceilings, plenty of light and original features in 900 sq ft/30 sq m. The main bedroom has a Euro king (160cm/60 ins wide) bed, 2 large wardrobes & pretty non-working fireplace. The small bedroom is tiny but gorgeous, with a single (90cm) bed and French doors onto a small balcony with cafe table and two chairs overlooking tennis courts and park. There is also an inflatable queen bed or big sofa for sleeping. We have a travel crib for Baby.

There's a new flat-screen tv and a multi-regional DVD player with film library .

Super- high-speed WI-FI is free!

KITCHEN/DINING ROOM
Our favourite room, as big as many apartments! If you're planning a long stay, especially with kids, size really matters. Table and Conran chairs for six, a Bosch dishwasher, washing machine and dryer plus microwave etc. Read our reviews to learn how much guests love this space.

CHILD-FRIENDLY ... but not CHILD-PROOF!
Our son has left some toys and books for our tiniest guests...and our new boiler means you wont run out of hot water at bathtime!

Well-behaved children are most welcome and of course the park provides a big attraction - but please note the flat isn't child-proofed and guests are responsible for keeping their little ones - and our property - safe from harm.

CENTRAL HEATING Yes !

SORRY - NO SMOKING OR PETS

Car: Not Necessary

A beautiful 'rural' setting across from historic Bishops Park and the River Thames - but close to transport for all the sights of London. Especially good for kids - for playing in the park, and an easy bus or Tube ride to the city's great museums .

I provide all guests with my unique guide to the flat and surroundings before they arrive, so they can get the most out of their visit. Many guests have returned two or three times....
