Planning a trip to London in 2020? Before you book your accommodation check out The Coach House.
What makes it special?
* You have your own little cottage with your own private entrance, all to yourself (no other guests) set in a charming garden.
* You’re served a delicious breakfast every day in “the big house” by your hosts – saving money by just needing a light snack for lunch.
* You have real “contact with the natives”. Your hosts, Harley and Meena, while serving you breakfast are there to chat, answer any questions about London, UK – or anything else and give you an insight into their lives. They also like to hear about you!
* It’s excellent value for money – for 5 people it works out at £44 / US$54 per person per night.

How to find your London vacation apartment
A vacation rental in London? There’s just too much choice!
The problem. Airbnb list over 50,000 London rentals, HomeAway claim over 9,000. How can you possibly filter them and choose the right one for you? Even if you do there’s the nagging doubt that you might not get what seems to be on offer.
The solution. Use a small, specialist company like Coach House Rentals. With just some 50 hand-picked central London properties, a list of satisfied guests as long as your arm (just view our testimonials) and the services of our reservation team to help you choose what’s right for you – we take the hassle and frustration out of choosing and booking.
And it doesn’t end there. We’ll arrange a car to collect you at the airport, we’ll be at your rental when you arrive to greet you, hand over the keys, explain how everything works and answer any questions. And while you’re here we provide a 24/7 help line to call if you have any problems.
Our famed Concierge Service now starts from the moment you book your rental – previously it was from when you arrived in London. Now we’ll give you help planning and organising your London trip as well as help and support while you are here. You don’t get all that with Airbnb or HomeAway!
Great value. With the current exchange rate of $/£1.30, London is excellent value compared to past years. So realise that dream – go to our web site and choose your London rental today.
