Sunny, cosy double room with a private bathroom in trendy Stoke Newington! 2mins walk from shops, The Brownswood Tavern (a great English pub) and beautiful Clissold Park. 10/20 min walk to great restaurants, galleries, pubs. 10mins to Manor House and Finsbury Park overground stations, then 15mins to city centre.
Backing on to a reservoir and nature reserve, the room is very quiet, the perfect place to get a great night's sleep! We have a 100ft garden that you can make the most of when it's not too cold. We have provided a toaster and kettle but you can use the open plan kitchen whenever you want! We are in the perfect location to see the city, buses straight to Angel, Tottenham Court Rd, London Bridge, Waterloo, Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus etc etc - but also it's a quiet neighbourhood, a chance to take a break from the busyness of London. We are very near the Piccadilly and Victoria underground lines, which will take you to all the major sites.
Stoke Newington has also recently boomed and there are lots of exciting new restaurants, cafes and bars all just a 10min walk away on Stoke Newington Church st. Then a little further there's Dalston and Shoreditch, areas with lots of small galleries, restaurants clubs and bars. We also have fast Wifi that you can use! We have a 7month old Lurcher - he's friendly and relaxed.
We will give you keys so you can feel free to come and go as you want, the room is on the first floor, so straight up one flight of stairs. You can come back as late as you like. Just try and keep as quiet as possible as my husband and I work early mornings.
Interaction with guests
We will provide you with a list of our recommendations...
There are the best Turkish, Vietnamese, Indian and Japanese, restaurants all with in half an hour of our home and lots of great pubs, bars and clubs. First Thursdays (where all the small galleries have openings) is also great and spread across Hackney, the main part being only a short bus ride from us. Our son and daughter who are in their 20's are often about and will happily recommend the best nightlife spots in London!
My husband and I are both English and have been living in London, which we love, for many years. He is a furniture designer and maker and I teach Pilates, write and paint. We have two children in their twenties and a young lurcher!
