About Carol-anne Turner

Hello and welcome to my world! As a young school leaver, I fell into the restaurant business, which I did for 12 years and really loved it, I worked my way up to managing a local restaurant, where my son was practically born, luckily I made it to hospital in time, he is now 28 and has presented me with my first grandchild, they live in Barcelona where I hope to add another apartment to the 'stable'. Bringing up my son meant a career change, I became a food stylist, then a stylist, which led to a very low rung of costume design in movies, as I got older I decided to take a risk and switch to Make Up Artist as I always loved that side of the business, also I noticed they left the set hours before I did! and I was getting a little long in the tooth to stand for hours on end on a shoot... Well I inherited this property from my lovely grandpa who came to this country from Poland with just the clothes on his back, and made good as the saying goes. He always said this house would be mine one day, but I never realized he meant it, but he made good on his word, so when my son was six, we moved into the ground floor. There were seven tenants on the two floors above, it was noisy! as the years went by and the tenants left, I didn't replace them, but started converting the house into the 3 lovely apartments they are today. I live on the ground floor and always here to help. Though these days I am a frequent traveller to Barcelona to see my darling Clementine, then I will leave you in the capable hands of my second in command Mia..

Carol-anne Turner purchased this apartment in 1940

Why Carol-anne Turner chose Belsize Park

Its a beautiful Edwardian house, with large windows that let in a lot of light, its what I love most about it. I have lavished a lot of love and care on this place over the years. I really treasure this place and I hope you will too.

Our Stay at the B&W House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the B&W house for two weeks in March. The accommodations were great. We had everything a family could want for our stay including a dishwasher and washer/dryer. The location was fantastic. We were a couple of minutes walk to the Belsize tube, a grocery store and restaurants. Carol-anne was a wonderful host and we highly recommend this property to anyone looking to be in a safe, comfortable spot that is close to central London.

Great location/Great owner - Perfect for stay in London!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great 4 day stay in London with our 3 kids. (10, 9 and 3). Location of the apartment is perfect, clean, bright, fresh flowers, and could hear the birds singing in the morning! It had everything we needed during our stay. Family restaurants around the corner if you don´t feel like cooking. Shop/Bakery/Organic store all located within steps of each other. Apartment is 1 min walk from Belsize Park Tube Station (depending how fast you walk :). We travelled on Eurostar direct from Brussels to St. Pancras/Kings Cross in the centre of London. Could easily get over all parts of London using the Tube and Buses. Recommend getting an Oyster Card ready to use on arrival (go to www.visitbritain.de) - kids under 11 are free. Would certainly use the Black & White House again if staying in London! Thanks Carol-anne and Mia!

A Five-Star Flat

  • 5 of 5

This flat is the best vacation rental we’ve had! It’s clean, spacious, well-equipped, and beyond my expectation. Located in a nice and quiet neighborhood, yet it’s not isolated. Belsize Park tub station, a bus stop, grocery store, bank, and many options of restaurants are all within 5 min walk. Carol-anne is really helpful. She welcomed us with cookies and milk. In addition, she offered to print train tickets for us, so we could have a day trip outside London with online sales promotion. We will definitely stay here again next time visiting London!

Fabulous Place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this darling place! Carol-anne and her staff were incredibly accommodating and the flat was perfect for our visit with our two college-aged daughters. Located on a quaint, quiet street in a great part of London with shopping, dining and tube station very close. Would definitely recommend this lovely apartment.

Car: not necessary

As mentioned before, unique movie house with cosy sofas for 2 and waitress service. Our very own local stately home; Kenwood House. Keats house, home of the poet, open to the public. Burgh House, another original historical property rarely found in the guide books. Local swimming baths, gym with day pass options for the more sporty minded, plus acres of open space for joggers, yet the heart of the city is only a short tube ride, this area is pretty unique, you will be delighted to have discovered it, urban not suburban, yet green and eclectic, as a long time resident, i hope to pass on my love of London and particularly Belsize park.

Notes:
Though in the heart of London, this space could not be more peaceful. With sunlight streaming in, settle into readers corner with an array of interesting books to choose from. When its cold outside, and you are weary from all the lovely sight seeing, turn the heating up high and watch a dvd with plenty of choice. I can assist you with theatre bookings or suggestions of interesting places off the beaten trail. Try the local movie house, literally round the corner, where you can sit on double sofas, with waiter service for that irresistible beer, wine, coffee and yummy food. I am hands on with help or will leave you to enjoy London at your own pace and your own discoveries. An easy trip from Heathrow, Gatwick and other London hubs.
