Caroline’s generosity of spirit makes the house feel like home and she’s steeped in her community so can tell you about all the best haunts. There’s a fuss-free feel: lovely things to look at, spotless spaces filled with light. Your bedroom, up in the eaves, has rooftop views and a neat little bathroom next door.
Plan your days in the chintzy living room, doors flung open onto the secret rooftop patio filled with potted tubs and trellises where you can perch on the bench and drink a glass of something chilled among the chimneys. You’ll breakfast on fruit and croissants in the informal kitchen.
Central London is close: explore South Ken’s museums, shop on the King’s Road or pop in to an exhibition. Boris bikes can be found two streets away, buses are frequent and there’s much to see and do. It’s quiet back here though and there’s a very good pizzeria on the corner.
