House of Coir

House of Coir, Plum Guide home in London

House of Coir, Plum Guide home in London

Book House of Coir now: from £135 per night Located in a beautiful white stucco townhouse, just a three-minute walk from Angel Tube station, this studio flat is a fantastic choice for a solo traveller or couple looking for a stylish space but who don't need lots of superfluous space. Despite the lofty three-metre-high ceilings and large sash window, your host – an experienced architect and interior designer – has really put a lot of thought into the layout and decor to make the most of the compact size. No detail has been overlooked in the pursuit of perfection, and every element must earn its place. As a result, the home manages to be both a chic yet relaxing space for two people to enjoy comfortably. We loved the use of beautiful natural materials, which are mixed with a subtle and mature colour palette. A bonus is a super-smart bathroom, complete with a sumptuous bathtub – perfect for a soak at the end of a busy day exploring the pubs, indie boutiques and antiques shops that dot this corner of North London. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom


Acapulco, Plum Guide home in London

Acapulco, Plum Guide home in London

Book Acapulco now: from £400 per night Taking inspiration from that all-too-rare of London amenities, an outdoor space, this flat is decorated in a modern British style, combining natural materials, industrial design and a side of mid-century influence to create a stylish home. The star of the show is the large outdoor terrace complete with seating, a barbecue and slatted screens for added privacy. We can think of nothing better than a balmy summer evening spent out here with friends and family, the bifold doors thrown open, instantly expanding your communal space. If you can bring yourself to leave the deck area, you're right in the thick of things here. With beautiful Regent's Park and the conveniently located Warren Street station nearby, plenty of trendy restaurants and lively bars right on your doorstep, and Oxford Street's shops only a fifteen-minute stroll away. If your number one priority is a vibrant location, then look no further. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Centre Stage X, Plum Guide home in London

Book Centre Stage X now: from £189 per night This smartly finished one bedroom apartment is supremely located in lively Covent Garden. Perfect for a solo traveller or a couple looking for a modern base to explore London from. While this isn't a lived home and will therefore lack some character, the high end finishings more than make up for this. The Miele kitchen and spacious living area make this ideal for those on longer stays who want to spend some time at home. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Follow the Moon

Follow the Moon, Plum Guide home in London

Follow the Moon, Plum Guide home in London

Book Follow the Moon now: from £488 per night Housed in a period, Grade II listed building in the centre of Marylebone, this home combines a quintessentially English style – cast iron fireplaces and traditional bay windows – with brand new, modern finishes and mid-century furniture. There’s a 24-hour concierge for a bit of hotel-level luxury, but touches like handwoven rugs and a vintage record player with a curated selection of vinyl in the apartment keep it feeling like a home from home. The bespoke design from award-winning architects Morrow & Lorraine ensures a unique vibe. Marylebone is packed with museums, shops and restaurants and Oxford Street is just a 10-minute walk away (or 5-minute cycle on one of the complimentary bikes). If you want to keep up your gym regime, the apartment offers special rates for a series of health clubs in the area. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Jockey Club

Jockey Club, Plum Guide home in London

Jockey Club, Plum Guide home in London

Book Jockey Club now: from £900 per night This modern mews home is central, bright and private – sought-after assets in this city. What’s more, it comes with its own parking space. Set over four floors, it has plenty of space for friends or family set on a central location. We love the separate snug room, complete with a smart TV. It’s ideal if you have teenagers looking for their own space, or if you want to sneak off for some alone time. On fine days, there’s also the small terrace for quiet times. The minimalist interior is soothing in neutral tones, punctuated by pops of colour. It’s bright and relaxing at the same time, with the added bonus of tonnes of storage space. The quaint little mews street is quiet, but minutes from the buzz of central London, with countless restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. It’s also within easy reach of some of the city’s biggest green spaces, including Regent’s Park, and the renowned Lord’s Cricket Ground. If you’re travelling far or arriving late, ask your host about a welcome pack or fridge fill. Start your holiday as soon as you arrive and don't worry about groceries. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
