As with most private homes in the UK, it is not air-conditioned, as there are only a few days in some summers when it would be pleasant to have. If you are lucky enough to be in London for those few days then you may wish to use the portable electric fans provided. In the British climate you may find the two resident umbrellas of more practical use.
In 2019 only available May 1st - Sept 30th £225/night all inclusive.
This is our home when we are in London so please consider our neighbours by not holding noisy parties or playing loud music. Maximum overnight occupancy 4.
