Pied Bull Court

Pied Bull Court, Plum Guide home in London

Click to book Pied Bull Court now: from £536 per night Enter into this elegant lower-floor apartment and leave the bustling city streets outside. It’s no mean feat to create a space of comfort and charm in the heart of Central London, but this pocket of opulence achieves just that. From the moment you step into the living space you’ll be taken to a bygone era of class and sophistication, with royal-red sofas, antique rugs, and dark wood furnishings. From a floor-to-ceiling library in the master bedroom, eloquent tones of gold and soft-pink, and plenty of ornate touches, this rustic tapestry is bursting with grandeur. It’s the perfect home for a romantic getaway in the thick of the Big Smoke, but without the noise of big city living. If you’re looking to soak up the culture and heritage of London, discovering Holborn’s plethora of museums – including the British Museum, it’s traditional pubs, bars and high-end restaurants – then you really couldn’t be better placed. Back after a long day wandering the city, you’ll get a great nights sleep, especially after a spot of bedtime reading, with nothing short of a bookshop collection to choose from. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
