This is truly a peaceful haven in central London! Why pay for a hotel room when you can have a lovely low cost private studio apartment (sleeps 2 plus small child if required) with marble tiled bath/power shower room, modern well equipped kitchenette and charming garden, own entrance and a free daily help yourself continental breakfast (delivered to your kitchenette before your arrival and topped up during your stay) in a friendly cozy British home. You have total privacy in this secluded and quiet property away from people, noise and cars yet you are in the middle of Central London! This 1 BR/BA has a spacious double en-suite studio bedroom with its own hallway/kitchenette and bathroom. Studio room is lavishly decorated with charming antique furniture, comfy sofa, dining room table and chairs and huge luxurious king size bed that is 7 1/2 feet long (for those with longer legs), 2 separate his and hers chest of drawers, Jackwood Armoire wardrobe from Sri Lanka (shipped back from a trip), TV and DVD player, sumptuous cushions and lavish mirrors and dimmer lighting. Linens are crisply ironed luxurious Egyptian Cotton sheets and fluffy white towels.

Bookshelf in apartment provides extensive range of maps, London and UK A-Z, leaflets and books about all the tourist sites including a DVD library and there is a guest book-exchange library too.

House conveniently located in zone 2 near many shops and restaurants, Westfield shopping centre and multiple bus stops just 1 minute from front door. Also multiple tube stations nearby including Hammersmith underground, Baron's court, Fulham Broadway and Parson's Green underground stations just 10-15 minutes walk from house. You can be at most Central London Tourist sites within 30-45 minutes by bus or tube. Location is very safe and central and in a lovely residential part of London on the border between Hammersmith and Fulham just a stone’s throw from Chelsea and Kensington.

Boris bicycles are available just one minute from house with many local sites to visit. Particularly nice is a lovely ride along the Thames River path visiting all the olde worlde Dickens pubs along the way. Also nearby is a wetlands bird sanctuary you can bicycle to in just half an hour across the Thames. You can even bicycle to Kew Gardens along the cycle paths beside the Thames for a great day out.

Property is located in zone 2 in the pretty and popular upmarket London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and therefore is in the centre of London. Area is in lovely quiet residential area yet has everything just a stones throw away. Public transport amazing and just one minute from 8 different buses going directly to all major London tourist attractions (Buckingham Palace, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Waxworks, China town, Harrods, London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Sq etc) , shopping (Bond St, Knightsbridge, Oxford St, Kings Road etc) , theatres (the theatre scene around Soho and Leicester Sq), museums (V&A, Science Museum, Natural History, British Museum etc), and takes just half an hour at the most. Going in the opposite direction Kew Gardens is just 30 minutes away. Tube/Underground just 10 minutes walking to Piccadilly, Circle, District and Hammersmith and City lines. Heathrow about 45 minutes only and Gatwick takes about 1 1/2 hours. Just 1 minute from the house are masses of antique shops, restaurants, pubs, grocery shops etc only minutes from front door and we are 10 minutes from major shopping centres including Westfield. Portobello Road for antiques shopping on a Saturday morning just 20 minutes on the bus. Thames just 5 minutes walk with lots of Oldy worldy pubs and river walks. 3 football stadiums in the Borough so keen footie fans can be at Fulham or Chelsea football stadiums just 10 minutes walk down the road. All my guests just love this location.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I've lived in Fulham for over 30 years and love it here. I have worked part time for the last 10 years for a charity supporting women with breast cancer and been involved in complementary medicine and nutrition for at least 25 years. I have just finished doing a Masters in International Public Health Nutrition (phew!). However, I have done B&B on and off for over 20 years and love meeting and welcoming all the wonderful people who visit from all over the world and come and stay at my very British B&B.

Why the Owner Chose Fulham, London, UK:
I chose to buy in Fulham because it is in Central London and yet in a lovely green and leafy safe residential area just a short ride on public transport directly into the city centre. Walking is only minutes to a wide range of restaurants, shops, English pubs, parks, shopping centres, the Thames and lovely antique shops. It's so quiet and yet so central.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
I bought my house and completely gutted it from top to bottom which was great fun to do. The house is decorated in natural materials using natural fabrics, stone, wood and marble. It's very bright and light and airy. Lots of attention to detail and the house is kept immaculately clean and tidy by my lovely cleaning lady. It is requested shoes are removed at the front door which helps keep the house so clean. You will be nurtured and well looked after here. It really is a cozy haven in the centre of London with a lovely garden to rest in at the end of the day or have your breakfast on the patio on warm sunny days before the start of your sight seeing. Because it is quite small it has a lovely cottagy feeling about it. I hope you love it like I do!
