About the property

Luxurious And Comfortable, Couples & Kids Come And Enjoy London From Our Home!

Luxurious and comfortable, come and enjoy London from our house. With a village feel in the city, the location has easy transport links to London Underground or Railway Services. A tube or train will take you to central London in just 20 minutes!

The house dates back to the early 1900s and it's 'boomerang' layout and unique spiral staircase give it a special look and added space - great for kids and adults alike. Although it has been renovated since, it retains some original features, such as the fireplace. It is conveniently tucked away down Castelnau row footpath and is the biggest of 7 cottages, in this very calm spot. The house sleeps 4 comfortably.

About Farid Bennis

Hi! My name is Farid, and that's my wife - Tamima, and our 2nd child, Sofia, before she was born. I grew up in London, UK and Tamima grew up in Quebec - the capital Quebec province - Canada.

These days we travel a lot and are often in Morocco and Canada and so we love renting out the house and meeting wonderful guests from all over the world. We speak English, French, Arabic and we're trying to learn Spanish.

Gracias y hasta pronto!

Why Farid Bennis chose Barnes

I've lived in this house since I was a teenager. Originally my father bought it for my brother and I. Soon after, they both moved abroad and I've taken care of the house ever since.

I have very fond memories of the place since I spent my final school years, and university years living there. Since I grew up here, I know Barnes very well and I love it when guests ask for my advice about the village and the surroundings.

I must admit, I'm not an expert on London, but then again, who is?! We welcome your visit to find out more...

What makes this cottage unique

The house is well insulated and stays relatively cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The best thing about it is the 10 minute walk across Hammersmith Bridge. The river is beautiful to cross by foot!

quaint, cozy, comfortable, convenient

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The apartment was comfortable and the hosts were so nice. They left fresh flowers and food which made the first morning much easier. Fresh bread, eggs, milk, etc. allowed us to rest instead of trying to find a store right away.

The apartment is so close to the bus which gets you to the tube. Just a 2 minute walk. Lots of restaurants near by too.

The beds were very comfortable and there is great storage.

No electrical in bathroom though so if you want to shave, dry hair you'll need to go to

the bedroom. Floor and counter tiles and grout are real old but what isn't old in England? The wood flooring in the living room and bedroom is new and very beautiful.

All in all, a great place to stay in London!

Cottage sympathique, bien situé (à 10 minutes du Tube).

  • 5 of 5

Maison confortable, joliment décorée et bien située. Quartier très cosy.

A quelques 10 minutes de la Station d'Hammersmith qui vous mène facilement dans toutes les directions. De même, autour de la station de nombreux commerces et restaurants.

C'est donc une résidence très favorable à un séjour londonien.

Si vous avez un véhicule personnel, il est possible de le garer gratuitement dans la rue.

Etant donné sa position il est facile de sortir de Londres vers l'ouest du pays (Heathrow à 20 minutes, Oxford à 1 heure, etc).

Vous ne regretterez pas votre séjour dans ce cottage.

Bonnes vacances.
