I recently had the privilege of staying at 40 Winks and it was truly the experience of a lifetime, one that will be impossible to parallel. Mr. Carter is the perfect host with every detail of my visit meticulously organized. He emailed me prior to my stay to confirm my arrival time, kept me up to date about weather conditions in London, and even prepared tea when I arrived unnaturally early in the morning. He went so far above and beyond that I felt more like an old friend than a welcomed guest. As dozens before me have mentioned, you will not find a more aesthetically inspiring accommodation in all of London. The house is stunning and it's like staying in an enitrely different world. A wonderful, cozy, inspiring one where you can't help but smile. Thank you so much Mr. Carter for a lovely visit. You are a delight and I am already anxiously awaiting my next stay!

Well...wow! What an experience :-)...from start to finish great fun and will not be forgotten.

40 winks really is something special and to be experienced - be prepared to be welcomed by David.

The double room was very comfortable, relaxing and spacious (though a little noisy with traffic).

Good location for restaurants and markets and David has a lot of local knowledge to help if needed. Very close to tube.

All in all - great fun! Go with an open mind...
Happy adventures
Paul and Kerry :-)

Room Tip: Double room recommended

I had the honnor to fly all the way from Brazil to stay for one week at 40 winks! The place is amezing, I can't decribe who magical it is! What I can really say is that worth it very minute of the 11 hours that I had to spend on a plane to get there. The staff is sweet and always happy to help. Since there is only two rooms, you feel like a guest of David's, and it is impossiable to live 40 winks without loving to know him.
