The space
Everyone and all their wonderful individuality is welcome at Swifts Yard, so please be assured of a warm greeting! The SPACE: After taking in the amazing views, you'll gain access from the street, through large metal gates. Make your way across the Victorian Yard to the Industrial staircase and up onto the walkway with communal entrance door. Your living area is through a lockable door on the left. (Our little family live above, so are on hand to help most of the time but we leave you alone unless you need us.)
Every aspect of your flat has been carefully designed to make the most of the space and offers lots of lighting options. You will enter into a room with a high ceiling and lots of artworks. A corner sofa that turns into a double sofa bed, Vintage Unit with hidden TV, dining table for four and a fully equipped kitchen; Nespresso coffee machine, De Dietrich combination oven, Siemens Washer/Dryer, Baumatic Induction hob, fridge with Ice box, Dishwasher plus all the other usual utensils and receptacles.

Good quality health and beauty products are always available so If you forget something please just ask.
Families can borrow high chair, travel cot and age appropriate toys.

Guest access
You will be given a key code for the Communal Front door for self check-in. Once inside the hallway your own flat key will be waiting for you. Access can be made at anytime from 2pm on the day of planned arrival. The arrangement is perfect for people who are wanting a late check-in. We will try and greet you upon arrival but may often have to catch you later.

Other things to note
Put used towels & bedding in the shower upon check-out. Swifts Yard has an uneven walking surface of concrete and gravel, the yard is in use so be aware, the stairs have open mesh treads so may not be suitable for those killer stiletto heels! The neighbouring house has some scaffolding erected with part of it in our yard. Apart from that we hope that you will enjoy your stay in this interesting property.

London, England, United Kingdom

Crystal Palace is a fantastic area. High up on a hill overlooking the city of London the streets are full of restaurants, bars, pubs, cafes home & clothing shops and antique emporiums. Please see the photographs for a small selection of the best. All places are within 10 minutes walk from the flat. There are lovely walks around the area with some special Victorian architecture to admire. The Crystal Palace Park is right here with a large lake and special collection of antique Dinosaur sculptures. The park also has a grade 1 listed sports centre with swimming, tennis, squash, a gym and many other sporting facilities for anyone to enjoy.

Designer & Maker (when I can), Wife to Jon (if there is time) and Mum (everyday) to a 7 year old funny girl. Our family of three, moved from Peckham to Crystal Palace 6 years ago and have loved it from day one. It's great being in a thriving large village, with its wonderful arty community and independent businesses. We bought a quirky tall property with land, which consists of a yard, two artists studios, a small office and 3 storey flat. Is not a conventional home but it suits us perfectly. We love : Art, Design and Architecture, Family, Crystal Palace, time with friends, fleeting acquaintances, music festivals, dancing round our Rock-Ola 1962 juke box, being busy, being lazy and the glow of a camp fire. Happy Days!

During your stay
We live just upstairs so are usually on site. We try and greet you upon arrival but often it will be self check-in and we will meet you when we can. You will be left alone if you desire but we are always available for help or advice. The Yard is of mixed use and so also houses our Art & Design studios plus a small independent office, which is let out to family friends. You will find it a welcoming and friendly environment with helpful people on hand to resolve a problem or willing to give some local advice. We are like an extended family at Swifts Yard.
