This lovely, comfortable, centrally located flat is perfect for one or two, and is just a short walk (or lazier bus ride!) to pretty much everything that London has to offer. With a quiet courtyard to relax in as well, it's a perfect London base.
Hugely comfortable, one-bedroom flat in the very centre of London, in the beautiful and quiet neighbourhood of Clerkenwell.
The fitted kitchen includes a cooker, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine.
The living room has two comfortable sofas, an armchair, a dining table, a small desk, and a flat screen TV. The bathroom has a great power shower. And the bedroom has a lovely comfortable, super-king-size, bed.
The flat opens onto a large, peaceful, and semi-private, courtyard, where you can relax over breakfast, or just enjoy the sunshine...
Clerkenwell is a fantastic area, with lots of excellent cafes, restaurants and bars nearby - it has the feel of a village, but is right in the centre of the city. It's a 10 minute walk to the antique markets of Islington, 15 to St Paul's Cathedral, and another 5 from there, over the beautiful Millenium Bridge to the Tate Modern. Sadler's Wells, home of contemporary dance, is less than 10 mins walk too.
Any number of buses will whisk you to Oxford Street, Covent Garden, London's Southbank (all in about 15 mins, or walk it in 30 if you're feeling energetic), and Farringdon underground station is a 5 min walk from the flat, from where you can travel across London with ease.
It's a very safe area - so is a really good base for a solo traveller or couples. All in all, it's an absolutely lovely base for exploring London!
Accès des voyageurs
The whole flat will be given over to guests. This is my home usually - I only rent out when I'm away myself for some reason - so the flat has a personal feel, rather than an empty shell.
You are welcome to use anything in the flat, (though of course I'd be grateful if you would replace anything you finish up - eg. the coffee....Thanks.)
There will be one wardrobe with a few of my more fragile things crammed in, so please leave this one alone, but the other wardrobe will be fully available for your use.
I've never slept so well as I do here - it's so quiet and peaceful most of the time, totally belying the fact that it is in the centre of town. It is a genuinely lovely place to stay.
Any special requests - just ask....
Échanges avec les voyageurs
My schedule allowing, I will try and meet you on your arrival and give you a quick tour of the place, then I'll head off and leave you in peace. If I'm not able to be there when you arrive, then I'll arrange for a neighbour of mine to greet you. During your stay, either they or I will be around if you have any queries (or in the unlikely event of an emergency of any sort).
I'll also leave a kind-of 'How to' guide for the flat, together with some suggestions for places to see and visit in the area.
Happy to help with anything related to your stay - just get in touch.
This is a quiet area, so no parties or whatever I'm afraid, and my neighbours and I would be grateful for no loud noise after 11pm in the evenings - thank you :-)
I can often be pretty flexible with check in and out times - so do let me know if you have a specific request.
This is a lovely, quiet area, so please do respect my neighbours and don't play really loud music or whatever after 11pm thanks!
