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.

Le logement

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.

Autres remarques

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 :-)

Clare haar appartement was precies zoals op de foto's staat. Voor ons voelde het als een fijne plek om thuis te komen na een lange dag slenteren door de stad. Het appartement is van alle gemakken voorzien. Het bed lag heerlijk. Het contact met Clare was heel prettig. Het was geen probleem haar appartement te vinden door haar gedetailleerde omschrijving. We werden door haar buurman ontvangen. Ondanks dat wij een flinke vertraging hadden, is dit allemaal probleemloos verlopen. Wij zouden het appartement zeker aanbevelen aan andere reizigers!

Clare's place is an oasis in noisy, packed London. It's spacious, with a nice bed, good storage if you're staying for a while, and the living room is perfect for lounging around. The bedroom has great blinds for blocking out light and the apartment doesn't face the street, so if you're a light sleeper, you'll be fine. There's also a nice outdoor patio area (for when it isn't raining) that makes it feel even more like a hidden refuge, but then you can walk outside and still be right in the thick of it. The area has two different markets nearby, which is great for picking up snacks, water, etc. You're also near a ton of great food and drink options, along with being not too far from trains to get to the rest of London. Staying here was the best Airbnb experience I've had yet.

Clare was a lovely host leaving chocolates and Prosecco for us on arrival. Her flat is lovely, decorated to give a very calm atmosphere. So much so you forget you are in the middle of London. The flat is very comfortable, has good facilities and outside space for nice weather. It's very convenient for the centre of London with supermarkets and restaurants on the doorstep.

This is our third September staying in Clare's flat. We have only positive things to say about the experience. Clare is a warm and welcoming host, always available for questions and responding immediately to any concerns. The flat is terrific. It's roomy and well laid out - and the bed is very comfortable. Also, Islington is a great place to stay as it is less than a 20 minute walk to St. Paul's Cathedral, the Thames, the Tate Modern - and both the Globe and National Theatres. We plan to return to London every September for years to come - and will always want to stay in Clare's flat.

We had a perfect stay. Setting the tone, our flight was late and we arrived 2 or 3 hours late, but Clare hung on, and we were warmly welcomed, not even a hint of reprimand despite the inconveniently late arrival. Clare's flat is great, with a fully equiped kitchen, including dishwasher and washing machine, cooking utensils, good size refrigerator stocked with essential cooking ingredients. The bathroom is a generous size, the shower is wonderful, with hot water on demand. And the bed is so so comfortable that we had trouble getting out of it each morning. Clare left us a beautiful bunch of roses that slowly opened up during our stay, so beautiful, a bottle of wine that so very welcome after our long tiring journey, a super helpful guide covering everything in the flat and including tips on local restaurants which were utterly accurate (you MUST try the Gate Islington, her favourite, and now ours too), and Oyster cards that we could top up to get around London on public transportation. Clerkenwell is a great neighborhood, safe, quiet at night, far enough from the madding crowds of the main tourist hubs, but within comfortable walking distance for anybody who enjoys walking, and within easy access via buses and the underground. And if you need to shop for essentials, Waitrose is right downstairs, literally. Stay here if the flat is available, it is perfect.

My Mum and I had a wonderful stay at Clare's apartment. It was very cosy and we felt at home straight away. The bed was the most comfortable ever! Clare was a very helpful host and always responded immediately. Would love to come back! :-)

Hi Jane I'm SO sorry that I forgot to put up a review for you after your stay ... a consequence of me going on holiday myself just afterwards, and I completely forgot. Apologies! What i would have said, is that you were lovely guests, communicating well with your travel details (and arriving almost on the dot - which in my experience is unheard of!), you left the flat beautifully clean and tidy, and my neighbors also said that you were very nice guests. So, thank you very much, and it would be lovely to have you back at some point - dates allowing :-) all best Clare

Clare's lovely and cosy flat is located perfectly between Exmouth Market and Smithfield Market. From there you're shopping in Shoreditch or Angel in a heartbeat or walking to St. Pauls or Tate Modern. Clare's place will prove to be the perfect home base for your London adventures. We would definitely come back.
