London Is Open Again
by Harley Nott

Most lockdown restrictions were lifted on Saturday 4 July. This includes the provision of short stay accommodation; public places and leisure facilities, tourist attractions, galleries and museums; restaurants, cafés, bars and pubs – providing they meet Covid-19 secure guidelines. Most importantly the “social distancing” rule has been reduced from 2m to 1m+

UK arrivals are now NOT REQUIRED to observe self-isolation in quarantine for 14 days if they are from the countries on this list. Arrivals from countries not on the list are still required to observe self-isolation in quarantine for 14 days. This list is being reviewed and updated regularly, so check back often.

So London is now open and NOW is a great time to visit.

Not every attraction, restaurant and pub is open and you will have to do some research to find out which are, and you may have to book first.

But it will all be worth it as you will experience London without the regular tourist hoards.

Here are some links to help you:

London’s buses and tubes are operating as normal, with the requirement that passengers over the age of 11 must wear a face covering or mask and maintain a social distance of a minimum of 1m – details.

Coach House Rentals are accepting bookings. Monies paid for bookings that are unable to take place if restrictions are re-imposed will be returned or held as credit for a future booking.

Please be reassured that our properties will receive the highest standard of cleaning and disinfecting prior to and after occupation.

You might like to contact us (email or phone) prior to booking.

London Reopens
by Harley Nott

The UK’s Government’s roadmap out of lockdown has Saturday July 4 as the earliest date that restrictions on the hospitality industry may be lifted. This includes the provision of short stay accommodation; public places and leisure facilities, tourist attractions, galleries and museums; restaurants, cafés, bars and pubs – providing they meet Covid-19 secure guidelines. This date is contingent on certain conditions being met.

However the UK Government has also announced that, from Monday June 8, all residents and visitors arrivals from outside the “common travel area” (Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man) will be required to observe self-isolation in quarantine for 14 days – details. This restriction will be reviewed regularly and we will keep our newsletter mailing list up-to-date with developments.

On the assumption that restrictions will be lifted from Saturday July 4 Coach House Rentals and The Coach House are now accepting bookings from that date. Monies paid for bookings that are unable to take place if the July 4 date is extended will be returned or held as credit for a future booking.

Please be reassured that our properties will receive the highest standard of cleaning and disinfecting prior to and after occupation.

You might like to contact us (email or phone) prior to booking.

An affordable family vacation to London.
by Harley Nott

Impossible? Not if you stay in one of our rentals. Read on ……

1. At GBP/USD 1.27 London is very good value compared to Paris or the rest of Europe.

2. If you stay in a vacation rental, rather than in a hotel, it works out much cheaper especially for 3 or more people travelling together.

3. A vacation rental is also better because:

• preparing some of your own meals or getting take-aways is much more cost effective than always eating in restaurants,

• with a vacation rental you get more space

• there’s no need to dress up or “put on a face” to go out of your room.

And, as an added bonus, you have an authentic London experience, living in like a local.

Here are some of our best loved properties.

Property SPM. This spacious mews house provides a rare opportunity for the larger group to enjoy quality accommodation all under the same roof – sleeps 9/10 (5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms). From £ 670 (USD850) / night, or £75 (USD95) per person per night.

How to find your London vacation apartment
by Harley Nott

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.
