This Is What £800 Per Month Rent In Notting Hill Gets You (Appearances Can Be Deceiving)

Ah, Notting Hill, that delightful London district where anyone can move to, set up their own book shop and then convince Julia Roberts to fall in love with them by scalding her with your morning coffee in time to a Ronan Keating soundtrack.

Or, if you live in London, it's that place that’s mostly too expensive to hang out in with the exception of that one time of year when the carnival rocks up and you spend a weekend convincing yourself that street parties are incredible.



Notting Hill is an expensive place to live, most would not doubt that, but this advert listed on Houseshares.com is really taking the biscuit.

Listed as a ‘Lovely bedsit in the heart of Notthing Hill! [Sic]’ the place features such ground breaking interior features as a modern microwave (beneath your sink), a kitchen bedroom and a living room (beneath your bed). And it’s within 5 minutes’ walk of Hyde Park, and just 15 minutes from central London.

Other than the fact that it only has a shared toilet and shower and that there's a strict ‘NO COUPLES’ policy, it’s basically the steal of the century. £810pcm well spent.


Take the tour.
