Here is our pick of the top 5 holiday homes. Make your choice and treat yourself to a luxury stay.
Click to book Cranberry Tonic now: from £107 per night Studio living in Farringdon is a rite of passage for the arty, young professionals who populate the area. If you’re looking for a no-frills base in the city, this is the flat for you. In this cosy and compact space, the first thing you’ll notice is the feature wall. It works well here, looking sleek alongside the mint green headboard and solid oak Scandi desk and chair. The host can provide a 24/7 virtual concierge service, meaning you can truly relax during your stay. While you do have a kitchenette, Farringdon is the perfect base to explore some lesser-known foodie paradises. Head to Exmouth Market and Leather Lane, both a ten-minute walk from home. Contrary to their names, Exmouth Market is a classy street lined with bars, pubs, and excellent restaurants of all cuisines, whereas Leather Lane is a more traditional London market which runs during the week. Think street food, fresh fruit and veg stalls, and a bustling atmosphere. For your dose of culture, we cannot recommend the Barbican Centre enough. At just fifteen minutes away, you cannot miss this fantastic example of brutalist architecture as well as the art and cinema you’ll find inside. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
A Wanderer's Song
Click to book A Wanderer's Song now: from £550 per night Nestled in the heart of Bloomsbury's literary quarter, this charming Georgian townhouse is a great find for families. Over the last two hundred years, this garden square has had many notable residents, including Leonard and Virginia Woolf (who lived at 37) and DH Lawrence (lodged at 44), while John Masefield became poet laureate in 1930, living under this very roof. A private communal garden with tennis courts makes this a truly rare find in this part of town. Spread over four floors, this city-centre base is not best-suited for those who aren't keen on stairs but for a family with older children, or a group of friends who want to be in an upmarket part of town, it's perfect. Nearby, daytime and nighttime entertainment options are sorted courtesy of a trio of fascinating museums, Sadler's Wells Theatre, Bounce and The Piano Works in nearby Farringdon (all within a fifteen-minute walk). Standout local eateries include The Quality Chop House (ten minutes' walk) and St. John (just under twenty minutes away). Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
Click to book Lovely Day now: from £179 per night We were very impressed with this peaceful city retreat. It's located next to the canal, so you have lovely views of the water and canal boats, which makes for a welcome juxtaposition to the busy city streets. It's also an especially quiet home, located in a secure, private complex. The layout of the home works really well, with a generously sized living room, bedrooms and two large balconies to enjoy. The icing on the cake was Katelynn, who is a diligent and attentive host. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
New Row Studio II
Click to book New Row Studio II now: from £355 per night Heading into town for an evening of theatre, fine-dining and quality time? Situated on a narrow street in elegant Covent Garden, this characterful apartment is as central as it gets. Alongside the bustling piazza (two minutes stroll), you're surrounded by upscale fashion shops, captivating street entertainers and glorious French restaurants. Just a two-minute walk to the West End and a five-minute wander to the National Gallery, you really couldn't be better placed for the sights, sounds and smells of this refined entertainment and culinary hubbub. When you do choose to spend time in your new home, you'll find an air of rustic charm filling the apartment. Enjoy a quick coffee at the dark wood breakfast bar, benefitting from exposed beams, chic stools and sky blue walls. Putting your feet up with a good book in the living room, you'll notice the calming tones, thoughtful furnishings and tasteful artwork – it's the ideal spot to relax after a great night out. Sleeps up to 3 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Paddington Bear now: from £200 per night This chic home, housed in a Grade II listed building, has a fantastic location, just a five-minute walk from Paddington Station. The wonderful green spaces of Hyde Park are just a ten-minute stroll, if you fancy some peace and quiet. Perfect for foodies, Bayswater is an eight-minute walk away, with its vibrant and diverse dining scene – you'll find everything here, from Brazilian to Persian eateries. Of course, this stylish apartment has a modern kitchen if you want to eat in. After enjoying a meal at your dining table, sink into the comfy sofa in the calming living space with its muted grey tones, or ease any aches in the bathtub. This spacious place is perfect for entertaining family and friends in style. Sleeps up to 8 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
