The Coach House

London bed and breakfast with a difference

The accommodation is ideal for a family/group of up to 5 people or just a couple. We only take one booking at a time so, however many you are, you are never sharing with strangers.

The Coach House was built at the end of the 19th century, in the reign of Queen Victoria, and is a separate building with its own self-contained facilities standing in the garden of the main house. It was originally used to house coaches but has now been lovingly converted into very comfortable, self contained, accommodation for our many friends and visitors. It has its own private entrance off the street, not via the main house, so you can come and go as you wish without worrying about disturbing others. Total space is some 680 sq ft, 63 sq m. There are two bedrooms (sleeping a total of 5) each with its own bathroom, and a kitchen.

"Wonderful place, great food, delightful hosts!"

The main bedroom is a large (20ft x 15ft, 6.4m x 4.5m) room on the first floor with original oak beams and French windows giving out to the garden. There is a double (5ft) and single bed, easy chair, wardrobe and chest of drawers. Ample space for unpacking. You also have a telephone/answer phone with your own phone number (which we will let you know before you arrive), radio, television and hair dryer. A baby cot (crib in US English) + high chair is available if booked in advance.

There is high-speed broadband internet access via a wireless access point - to use it you'll need a laptop with a wireless card.

The bathroom is en-suite with bath (4ft6) + over-shower, basin and lavatory, travertine marble floor and wall tiling, heated towel-rail and halogen lighting.

Ground Floor Bedroom

On the ground floor is a second bedroom (15ft x 8ft, 4.6m x 2.5m) with twin beds. This also has a radio, television and hair dryer and its own private facilities (shower, basin and toilet) which, although not en-suite, are easily reached across the entrance way.

The Kitchen

There is a kitchen equipped with fridge/freezer, cooker and microwave which can be used for making coffee and tea (provided) and warming and eating take-aways etc; though we discourage full scale cooking. The kitchen table seats 4, 5 at a squeeze. A high chair is available if booked in advance.

There's no washing machine but the local launderette is 5 mins walk away - you can drop off clothes on the way to the tube station in the morning and collect them washed and dried when you return in the afternoon/evening.

If we have had no one staying the night before you will be able to go straight into your rooms; otherwise they will be ready for you from about 2.00pm - if you arrive earlier you will of course be able to leave your bags before heading into town and when you return all will be ready for you. If you need guaranteed access to your rooms before 2.00pm, please reserve The Coach House from the night before.

We ask you please to leave The Coach House by 10.00am on the day of your departure, though a later departure may be possible by arrangement.
