Where to stay
by Harley Nott
Our property ref. WML (see below)
An affordable family holiday to London.
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.
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 value properties.

And don’t forget our B&B, The Coach House, your own little cottage with your own private entrance, all to yourself (no other guests) set in a charming garden, just 20 minutes by tube (every 3 mins) from the centre of London and a delicious breakfast in “the big house” served by your hosts. Sleeps 5 (1 family room, 1 twin, 2 bathrooms + your own kitchen) £125 (USD159) /night for 2, £210 (USD267) /night for 5.
We only have a limited number of these great London rentals, when they’re gone, they’re gone so you need to move fast if you don’t want to miss out.

Visiting a foreign city is always fun but so much more enjoyable if you have people to stay with, who will look after you well, give you advice on anything you are interested in doing or seeing, but leave you alone to do your own thing. But finding a good and friendly bed and breakfast with a kitchen in London can be a nightmare – you can easily end up in a cheap and nasty down-market hotel, or find yourself living embarrassingly close to the owners of a private house and your fellow guests.
The Coach House, which is in a quiet, safe, fashionable part of town is a bed and breakfast with a difference.
There’s still some summer availability at The Coach House, but you’ll need to be quick.

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.

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!
