The Colouring Book
Click to book The Colouring Book now: from £217 per night Just a hop, skip and jump away from some of London's most famous sights, this quintessential Notting Hill townhome is a dream come true. Bursting with plush furnishings and colourful artwork – including a piece in the living room made out of footballs – this home is quirky and cool, with skylights upstairs letting in plenty of natural light. There's even a stylish patio off the master bedroom – it's the perfect spot for sipping morning coffees and evening cocktails.

Or, if you want to explore further afield, Both Westbourne Park and Royal Oak tube stations are about a ten-minute walk away. Sleeps up to 5 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
The Magical Hideaway
Click to book The Magical Hideaway now: from £140 per night This home has been lovingly refurbished and fitted out to a high standard very recently, making it a cosy bolthole where a couple could stay in luxury and comfort. The home is located on an attractive, leafy street with a mix of Regency terraces and mid-century homes. It's a pleasant walk from the tube via Pembridge Street with its independent vintage and collectors' shops. Portobello Market close by is a fun tourist experience and there's a good selection of high-quality shops, restaurants and bars nearby. Sleeps up to 3 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Style Council now: from £200 per night This apartment above a bustling road in the middle of Notting Hill is cool, calm and collected. Inside, it’s impeccably styled with crisp shades, hand-picked furniture and touches of natural textures. We love how well-lit the space is, especially the clever use of an internal window to illuminate the sophisticated navy blue kitchen. The dining table and bespoke bench is plenty big enough to host a friend or two for dinner. And you’re just a two-minute walk from cafes, shops, watering holes and restaurants when you feel like exploring your locality. Continue on for ten minutes and you’ll reach Hyde Park with its Serpentine lake and expanses of greenery. But best of all, your apartment is 200 metres from Notting Hill Gate Station, so after long days in the city, you’ll be hopping off the tube and straight into that big, comfy bed in no time at all. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Canning Passage now: from £608 per night There are many mews homes in London, but not many old coach houses with their original lattice windows intact and facing onto gorgeous internal courtyards. Whilst this home's style can be described as eclectic and doesn't have as much aesthetic consistency as some of the other homes in our collection, you'll be blown away by its architecture and location which is a short walk from Kensington Gardens and Gloucester Road. A great choice for a family looking to be in the area. Sleeps up to 4 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
Click to book Cotton Cocoon now: from £70 per night There were a lot of features about this home that we really loved. While it is a fairly small space, it has been thoughtfully designed with comfort in mind, and your host is also one of the loveliest people we have had the pleasure to meet. The interiors do have a contemporary feel, with the Andy Warhol photography adding character. Accessed via a ladder-style staircase, the bedroom here is on a mezzanine level, so you'll have to be prepared for some mid-stay climbing. The surrounding location is idyllic, with a bohemian vibe and within easy reach of the coveted Notting Hill. Sleeps up to 3 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
