Home truths

    Given the home's mews location, it's quiet despite being central. However, you may hear some slight noise from the second bedroom, so we suggest packing earplugs, just in case.

    It's possible you might hear some noise from neighbours during your stay.

    In the second bedroom, the single daybed pulls out into a double. We think this is best suited to children.

    Please note that there are stairs here, so it may not be suitable for those with reduced mobility.

    Your host can provide a cot for free upon request.

    Parking is tricky in central London. With that in mind, we suggest exploring on foot or taking advantage of public transit instead of driving.
