Great rental unit
It was a fabulous large studio. Well equipped. Quiet neighborhood and very lovely land lord. Loved it
We love apartments away from tourist town when we travel. This apartment was ideal. Everything you need. Quiet location with a five minute walk to Barons Court Tube, good pub in the street and Tesco next Road.
Mia was a delight to deal with. We shall certain recommend this place to others.
Fantastic place to call home base while my girlfriend and I explored London
Mia and her daughter were more than accommodating from the moment I booked the flat. Helping out with suggestions for pubs and things to do. The flat itself was perfect for my girlfriend and I with a washer, full kitchen and good size bathroom. The location of the flat was also great for exploring the city being that it was a 5 minute walk from barons court tube stop which allowed us to quickly and efficiently move around the city without worrying on how we are getting somewhere. Overall Mia and her daughter (who helped out tremendously) are outstanding hosts and we look forward to coming back for our next trip to London in the future!
Queens Club - the famous tennis club, is only meters away from the apartment, perfect for the LTA Finals at Queens. Barons Court is a well heeled residential area of West London, with tube links into Central London only taking ten to twenty minutes depending on where you want to go.
Many people mistakenly believe that name Barons Court is inspired by Earls Court to the east and the association of the area in the early 19th century with the Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach (died 1806) and his English wife Elizabeth (the Margravine, the widow of the 6th Baron Craven). They had a home at Brandenburg House immediately to the west of the site of Charing Cross Hospital. The Margravine died in 1828 and is commemorated by a number of roads in the area (Margravine Road and Margravine Gardens) and the Margrave possibly by Barons Court Road although the approximate equivalent rank in the British peerage to Margrave is a Marquess.
The name Barons Court is probably inspired by the Baronscourt estate in Ireland, where Sir William Palliser, who built the entire area, had connections. As well as Palliser Road itself, all the roads in the area are named after members of his family.
The platforms at Barons Court.
Perham Road - his wife
Charleville Road - his cousins, the Earls of Charleville
Gledstanes Road - his mother
Barton Road - his grandmother
Challoner Street - his great-grandmother
Fairholme Road - his married sister
Vereker Road - his married aunt, wife of Viscount Gort
Comeragh Road - after the family estate in Ireland
Castletown Road - after the Baronets Pallisers' estate in Ireland
Sir William's brother, John Palliser (the explorer) inherited the Comeragh estate in County Waterford. Sir William did not have an Irish estate of his own. Instead, he tried to develop this London estate. He died very suddenly on 4 February 1882, and the lawyers had a field day, selling everything off, including the 11 acres (45,000 m2) which would become the Queen's Club. Sir William was heavily in debt, though if he had not died so suddenly and had managed to sell many of the houses he could have been a wealthy man. As it was, the family ended up with nothing.
