HOLLYWOOD Mews in Chelsea is tucked behind an archway and - unlike a traditional narrow mews - is arranged around a large courtyard with trees. Each cottage has a private parking space. More like a French village square than the centre of the capital, it is hard to believe London can look so rural. Number 6 is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom modernised house with a large drawing room overlooking the courtyard. A wide archway leads to the 17'9" kitchen breakfast room, fitted with Whirlpool and Phillips appliances. The main bedroom has French windows opening onto an ornamental balcony. pounds 610,000 through Chestertons (0171 589 5211) and John D Wood (0171 352 1484).

COLLEGE LANE in Kentish Town was in the country, until the rest of London grew out to meet it. Half a mile from the tube station, this two-bedroom period cottage enjoys the peace of being in a no-through traffic lane. It has a 21' reception room with exposed floorboards, cast iron fireplace and French doors to the garden. The kitchen is a generous 22', also with doors to the 23ft garden which is secluded by a wall mounted trellis. There's a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor and another double bedroom on the top floor. pounds 209,995 through Winkworth (0171 485 9210).

THIS TWO-bedroom end of terrace cottage in Wimbledon is half a mile from the Common and the village High Street. In a small mews, the brick built cottage with gothic arched front door framed by roses, has a 20' reception room with fireplace and wooden mantle. The kitchen has space for cooker, washing machine and fridge and a door to the small but private enclosed back garden. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom. pounds 205,000 through Chestertons (0181 946 5052).
