Overview

Manor City Homes & Apartments
Wow Factor
Quirky All Bedrooms En-Suite

Austen House holds a spectacular location within the popular neighbourhood of Marylebone. This area is best known for its Georgian homes, independent shops and of course Baker Street, home to Sherlock Holmes! All just a short distance from the hustle and bustle of world-famous Oxford Street, Regents Park and Hyde Park.

The five-storey townhouse, once owned by Jane Austen’s brother Henry, can comfortably accommodate up to fourteen guests across its seven beautifully-appointed bedrooms. The home has been designed with incredible attention to detail, a glamorous re-imaging of the Regency period, taking inspiration from Henry and Eliza’s reported life at the house and as part of wider London society.

Austen House makes a wonderful setting for a family celebration or reunion of friends, the living areas are ideal for socialising and entertaining, enjoy afternoon tea in Jane’s Sitting Room while M Halavant’s Pantry is ideal for private dinners. The seven elegant bedrooms, all individually designed and featuring either super-king, double or twin beds, are split across the four levels and each feature en-suite facilities.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • Due to the character of the home, the bedrooms are set over multiple levels which may not suit all groups
  • One of the bedrooms features twin beds and is therefore better suited to friends or siblings sharing

Luxury self-catering holiday accommodation in London

London, the beating heart of the United Kingdom, is not just a city, it is a full-blown party of history, culture, fine dining and modern pizzazz! Nestled alongside the meandering River Thames, London seamlessly blends tradition, innovation and entertainment, inviting you to join the fun. So, book an Oliver’s Travels luxury pad and let the adventure begin!

Buckingham Palace, home to the British monarch, is a symbol of grandeur and tradition. You are invited to the Changing of the Guard ceremony, the hottest ticket in town. Red-coated soldiers, military bands and a regal atmosphere, it is a quintessential London experience that will have you feeling like royalty in no time.

Just a skip and a jump away, you will discover the Houses of Parliament. Big Ben, their time-keeping maestro, is the star of the show, with its towering clock face eternally reminding everyone that time flies when you are having fun in London. Next door, Westminster Abbey is the Gothic VIP section, hosting royal weddings, coronations and the final resting place of the who’s who of British history.

The River Thames looks so pretty at night. Tower Bridge, the city's showstopper, with its neo-Gothic towers and suspended walkways, opens up like a welcoming embrace for passing ships. The views are so breathtaking you will be glad of the front row seat.

The South Bank of the Thames offers the Tate Modern, once a power station, now a contemporary art playground and an impressive visual feast. Shakespeare's Globe Theatre is a time machine, whisking you back to the Elizabethan era with performances that will make you laugh, cry and wonder why ruffs ever went out of style.

For the fancy folk who like a touch of class, the West End is calling. The Royal Opera House, where drama meets elegance, and Piccadilly Circus, where lights meet excitement promise a theatrical cocktail of opera, drama, musicals and comedy, the kind of party you will not forget.

London's neighbourhoods are like the cool kids in this global bash. Shoreditch, the hipster haven, is decked out in street art, trendy boutiques and a nightlife that will keep you dancing until dawn. Camden, the alternative kaleidoscope, is a treasure trove of eclectic finds while Chelsea is super cool and super sophisticated.  

London has you covered with green spaces that are like chill-out zones for the soul. Hyde Park, with its sprawling lawns and serene lakes, invites you to kick back and relax. Regent's Park and Hampstead Heath offer postcard-worthy views that will make you the envy of your Instagram followers.

Let’s not forget the food - London's gastronomic fiesta! From the fragrant stalls of Borough Market to the Michelin-starred restaurants in Mayfair, it offers a culinary adventure for every taste bud. You cannot leave without experiencing the quintessential British delight, afternoon tea. Delicate sandwiches, scones and a variety of teas, it is the perfect pitstop in this non-stop party.

London is the city that knows how to blend its rich past with the electric beat of the present. Its landmarks, attractions and activities create a vibrant tapestry, inviting you to explore. Whether you are strutting down the bustling shopping streets, visiting a museum or finding zen in its green spaces, London's magnetic charm leaves an indelible mark on all who encounter its boundless allure.

  • Spectacular!

    Created on 30/08/2022

    Simply spectacular. It was like staying in an amazing art gallery, historical monument and Willy Wonka’s house all in one. The rooms were wonderfully appointed and Ann was our amazing butler and now our friend. Full breakfast at the farm table every morning. And a super cute small street on with end of our street boasting fun pubs and yummy eateries. It would be hard to find a more fun and unique place to live temporarily in London for groups big and small. Highest recommendation.
