The SpaceSince April, we are welcoming guests again and offer this lovely flat with direct access to large, well maintained garden.
This self-contained one bedroom flat is right in the heart of Stoke Newington, very close to the Town Hall and literally around the corner from fashionable Church Street with its many coffee shops, restaurants, pubs and boutique shops.
The apartment is fully furnished, modern and bright. It consists of a good sized and comfortable double bedroom with king-size bed, plenty of storage space, separate living room with open plan fully fitted kitchen, sofa-bed and dining room table.
The living room has double patio doors which open onto a small south west facing courtyard and provides views into our lovely large garden - great for afternoon tea or glass of wine in the sun, weather permitting.
The bathroom is off the living room, it is very small but has a good walk-in shower.
Note: the entrance to the bathroom is below normal ceiling height, so tall people may need to be careful not to bang their head.
The kitchen is kitted out with the necessary cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and glassware to enable guests to self cater.
There is a washing machine and clothes can be dried outside in the courtyard space.
Off street parking is available for one car for a small charge (please inform us before arrival if you require parking).
All bed linen and towels will be provided. A third person can be accommodated on the sofa bed in the living room upon prior arrangement and a small additional cost, but only for a short period of time (not for long bookings). Bed linen for a 3rd person can be provided.
Hosts live upstairs (separate entrance) and are available to answer questions or provide information on the area or sightseeing in London.
Generous breakfast is provided for the first night stay upon arrival: juice, coffee, tea, cereals, bread, jam, butter, fruit and eggs will be left in the flat for guests. Around the corner is a fantastic bakery, 2 small supermarkets, 2 delicatessen and many coffee shops so it is very easy and fun to have breakfast in the area. Guest AccessPrivate entrance at basement level, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, big garden at rear, WIFI. Off street parking upon request. Large sports centre with gym and 2 pools nearby. Interaction with GuestsWe live upstairs and guests can contact us by knocking on our front door, chatting to us in the garden, through email and via phone or text message. The NeighborhoodStoke Newington is very vibrant, with lots of cafes, restaurants and boutique shops.
We are situated around the corner from lovely Clissold Park with its tennis fields, skate park, great children's playground, children's paddling pool (only when the weather is hot), aviary, butterfly dome, animal enclosures and Clissold Mansion House.
Nearby is historic Abbey Park Cemetery.
5 minutes walk away is Clissold Leisure Centre with 2 pools and an excellent gym.
The flat is also reasonably close to Arsenal football stadium which is worth a visit!
This flat provides very convenient accommodation for attending weddings or events in Stoke Newington Town Hall or St Mary's Church. Getting AroundThis location is excellent for visiting London's West End with direct and very frequent bus services (73 and 476) to the Angel, Kings Cross, Euston, Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Circus/Oxford Street, Marble Arch, Hyde Park and Victoria.
Highbury Islington tube station is in easy reach using the 393 bus.
Alternative public transport connections include a fast link into the City from Stoke Newington Railway station.
Nearby Canonbury station provides connections for travel to the Olympic Park or Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford, Cristal Palace in South London, Hampstead in North London or Wimbledon/Kew Gardens/Richmond in West London.
Both Stoke Newington and Canonbury stations are a short bus journey away or a 20 minute walk.
We can provide Oyster cards for travel in London for a small deposit providing these are returned at the end of the stay.
Finally, the flat is in easy reach of all London Airports [City, Gatwick, Heathrow, Luton, Southend or Stansted]. Advise on travel from any of these airports can be made available upon request. Travel from St. Pancras International (Eurostar) is really easy as there are 2 buses (73 and 476) from there which stop very close to our house. Other Things to NoteThe flat is not suitable for babies, toddlers or small children as neither the flat is equipped for this nor are the flat and garden entirely safe for small children.
Please note that the entrance to the bathroom is below normal ceiling height, so tall people may need to be careful not to bang their head.
This is a 2 person listing, but a 3rd person can be accommodated on a sofa bed in the living room by prior arrangement and at an additional cost.
We suggest that it is only suitable for a short period of time and if the 3 people are very close friends or family as the bathroom is off the living room.
