Located ten minutes from Fulham Broadway and Parsons Green tube stations and minutes from the Kings Road, this attractive house has a warm homely atmosphere produced by the country-style décor which can be seen throughout.
The house is on a quiet road - set back from the Kings Road and right by Eel Brook Common. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and sleeps a maximum of 9 people in 3 double bedrooms, a twin and a single. There are 2 bathrooms.
The first room guests will find as they enter the hallway is a living area / TV room (12ft7 x 12ft4, 3.8m x 3.7m) which boasts impressive high ceilings, an attractive fireplace, two-seater sofa, chair, desk and computer (which is available for guests' use) with wifi broadband internet access, portable CD player, coffee table and an array of artwork on the walls. There's also a TV with digital channels. This is a nice relaxed area to work or rest any time of day.
The next room is the small but practical dining room (13ft x 8ft5, 3.9m x 2.5m) where you will find lush green walls, interesting artwork, and a dining table with six chairs. The table, chairs and curtains have been upholstered using the same fabric which brings an element of colour to the room.
The country-style kitchen (20ft5 x 10ft, 6.2m x 3m), which offers plenty of space and a sturdy wooden dining table that seats eight, boasts a traditional Aga oven and all of the expected appliances including coffee grinder, cafetiere, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, tumble dryer, toaster and kettle. The tiled floors, soft fabrics, Welsh dresser, cook books and plants all add to the country feel and create a nice informal place for friends to get together and enjoy a meal. There is also a TV with digital channels in the kitchen.
French doors from the kitchen lead out onto the paved garden area, at its best in the summer months when plants are green and flowering. There is a table which seats six - making this a perfect location for al fresco dining.
Stairs lead up to a bedroom (12ft4 x 10ft6, 3.7m x 3.2m) with matching floral curtains and bedding. This room has a double bed (4ft6 x 6ft3), fitted wardrobe, chair, bookshelf, drawers and two bedside tables with lamp.
Next to this room is a pink-tiled bathroom which provides a bath and a basin, with a separate loo next door.
A few further steps lead to the drawing room (17ft1 x 28ft8, 5.2m x 8.7m) – again a comfortable, homely space where visitors will find it easy to relax. High ceilings and large windows ensure that the room benefits from plenty of light and a sense of space.
Cream carpets and subtle peach-toned walls create a warm feel. There is a range of comfortable furniture including a plush three-seater sofa, two seater sofa, two sofa chairs and three wooden chairs. The real working fire, marble fireplace, floral curtains and various artwork really add to the room's character, making it feel traditionally very English.
Away from the drawing room and onto the next floor guests will find a hallway lined with bookshelves. This leads to a large bathroom with a bath with over-shower, marble-top basin and a loo.
Next door is a lovely bright children's room (11ft x 9ft6, 3.3m x 2.9m) with a single bed and a cot (which can be removed on request when booking). The room has been decorated with country-style fabrics and on the wall there is a selection of Beatrix Potter characters – which is a charming touch! There is also a set of drawers, fitted wardrobe, bookshelf and a rocking chair.
Stairs leads to a twin room (13ft3 x 9ft7, 4m x 2.9m) with two single beds, set of drawers, fitted wardrobes, TV, pretty dressing table and a bookshelf.
Next door, the master bedroom (14ft5 x 12ft8, 4.4m x 3.9m) provides plenty of light and has a large bed, fitted wardrobes, a two-seater sofa, TV, set of drawers and a dressing table with mirror – both of these rooms have been decorated with a country-style theme.
The final bedroom, located on the top floor, is quite special. The walls and ceiling have been covered in wooden panels – giving the room a Swiss chalet feel! There's plenty of light as the room has a large skylight, and guests will find a TV, stereo, set of drawers and a desk, chair and bench.
The best feature of this room is the 4 poster double canopied bed which yet again continues the country theme.
This property is located between Parsons Green and Fulham Broadway tube stations – which are both less than a ten minute walk away.
There is a good range of restaurants, pubs and coffee shops nearby: Strada makes a good choice for simple, inexpensive Italian food, Nyab provides tasty Indian dishes and The Blue Elephant is a famous Thai restaurant renowned for its excellent food and drink. Guests wishing to go into central London can get a tube from either Parsons Green or Fulham Broadway. Alternatively they can hop onto one of the many buses that go into central London and leave from virtually outside the house..
“A positive experience with Coach House Rentals and the beautiful”
Left on 07/29/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jul 29, 2013Stayed Jun 2013
The staff at Coach House Rentals displayed a very caring and professional manner in all communications we had with them. They responded quickly and thoroughly, and displayed a genuine attitude of concern for our needs.
The home is located in a beautiful, convenient, clean and safe area. Within a few minutes we could walk to any of the following: tube stations, bus stop, shops, bank, grocery stores, restaurants.
The home is very warm and inviting. It was clean and well decorated, conveying the appearance of a true English home. There was ample room for each family member to have their own space, as well as space where we would gather as a family. We all loved the spacious kitchen with the big table where we would gather for a meal or just sit around and talk. The sitting rooms and court yard were areas where we would go to read or relax.
Our vacation in London was absolutely marvelous, due in part to the positive experience we had with Coach House Rentals and the beautiful home we stayed in. I would have no hesitation in using these services again.

We are group of 9 first time visiting London. The length of stay was 9 nights. The whole experience was great and very pleasant. The rental house is quite clean and just as shown/described on the website. Our greeter spent over half an hour walking through the properties and advising the in and out of the property and neighborhood. Very nice and very helpful in answering our questions.
The rental offers a true home like environment after a long day's museums visiting and sightseeing everyday. Convenient tube and bus to all major point of interests. At the end everyone of our group gave very high remarks to this rental facility and consider this the top rate among our 24 day journey in Great Britain. We all enjoyed this rental very much.
“Our whole family enjoyed this house and neighborhood”

We loved having such a great place that we could enjoy one another as a family! Our young adult children loved the youthful vibe of the neighborhood. We loved having large gathering areas-the kitchen, the garden especially. Very close to great neighborhood shops, restaurants, parks and a wonderful pub. Also very accessible to all forms of mass transit while offering a place of calm in a very busy city. We will stay here again!
