Notting Hill


Notting Hill

Full of colourful terraced houses, wealth and affluence. Cosmopolitan Notting Hill captivates visitors with its unique charm. You can find everything here from world-famous events to independent galleries and theatres.

Ida is a well kept secret of Queen's Park

Absolutely no one can resist Ida's homemade pasta and charm. Very romantic too. Have you tried a Nutella cheesecake? Beware there is no turning back on this one.

Acquire a Dark Habit and become a coffee Connoisseur

The Dark Habit coffee shop is a brand new spot for coffee lovers in Queens Park, so cool that would make some Shoreditch hipsters cry of envy.

Enjoy Brutalist Architecture at Trellick Tower

London's architecture is typically no more than 3 stories high, however, you will find several pearls around town of the brutalist movement with a very different feel, such as this tower with a twin sister in the south east!

Explore your local Park

This is where the area takes its name from, a beautiful Victorian green oasis. Come for a stroll, explore the pitch and putt, the bandstand, tennis courts and ping pong tables.

Breakfast at Clifton Nurseries

Find your way through the inspiring gardens and products of Clifton Nurseries to The Quince Tree. Sit down, relax and enjoy a shabby chic breakfast and rays of sun.

Mingle with the locals at the Market

Sunday is farmer's market day. Join this neighbourhood's favourite. There is delicious organic food for every taste and genuine caring farmers that will treat you like an old friend.

The best Pad Thai in London at Spicy Basil

Packed from opening til closing this is the most famous restaurant in Kilburn. The minute you walk in your senses will take you back to Asia. It operates like a factory, you will be in and out in minutes, proudly.

The Silk Route Culture at Ariana II

Ariana II has a twin brother in NYC and has been in the family since 1986. Their special dish Kabuli palow is to die for, a melting piece of lamb buried in an exotic rice.

Discover a South Italian Pearl

Ostuni is the name of small southern Italian city in Puglia. Book a table and go for fish and seafood dishes. You will be booking your next trip to this city.

Grand sushi at Michiko Sushino

Sharing the space with Dark Habit is the collaboration shop between Atariya and Michiko Koshino, Sushi Bar & Take Away Michiko Sushino. An amazing addition to the area!


It's a short bus ride away. Browse street food, antiques, books, clothing, souvenirs and vinyl discs. A London Classic that never gets old and a true cockney haven.

Get into the tube and hit the City Centre

Looking around this peaceful and quite neighbourhood you would not say you are 10 mins from Oxford Circus and a couple more to Embankment. But you are indeed! Let's go!

The Lows

  • It's not the obvious location, but it's definitely an area that you will look back and say "that was brilliant."
  • There are a few stairs to access the rooms
  • The smallest room is in the basement and it has no windows. It's a perfect den for the kids.

Where are my reviews?

Have you ever booked a holiday home with great reviews and found yourself disappointed? Us too.

That is why the Plum Guide doesn’t operate a traditional review system. Instead we test every one of our homes obsessively against 150 criteria. Only 1 in 100 homes we test, is accepted. This is one of them.

This home has been accepted because it:

  • Received numerous exceptional customer reviews
  • Passed all 150 criteria of our in-person hospitality test
  • Has 3 “super powers”: 3 unique things that make it a truly amazing stay
  • Received a unanimous "In" vote by the Plum Hospitality Judges
  • Received top marks from every Plum Guide guest, since being listed with us

"Although this may not be the traditional location for tourism, it certainly is the perfect neighbourhood to actually experiment London off the beaten track, a hidden gem glued to the tube station. The house is bigger than it looks and it’s perfect for a small family, the garden is truly big and green, so big that a large conservatory has been added, creating a winter garden bursting with sunlight or with the sound of rain drops, either way it’s stunning. Also at ground level, there are an abundance of books and a little music area. The master bedroom was adorable, the space, the big ensuite, the little desk but most of all due to the large terrace with a wooden deck where you can lay down in the sun and pretend you are in Malibu (at least 4 days per year). I like tight spaces, therefore I felt very comfortable in the basement level where you will find a great room for the kids with its own shower and office space. I know the area very well and keep thinking I wish I could live here. "
