10 Mins to Central London - Friendly Family Home
House, Private room - London, United Kingdom
We hope you will share our warm and welcoming family home with us, which is always full of cheer and goodwill - we aim to make your experience in London a happy and enjoyable one!!
Exploring Central London?
We are only 3 minutes walk from Manor House tube station.
Finsbury Park/Manor House is one of London's biggest and most central transport hubs - it is only 10 minutes from Kings Cross/St Pancras.
Finsbury Park is serviced by 2 tube lines (Victoria Line and Piccadilly Line) and British Rail trains as well. So you have lots of choice for fast transport links into the West End. There are also a large number of buses that take you straight into town - 15 mins by bus to Camden Market - very fast!!
Local Areas of Interest?
The house is located close to two large parks (if you fancy a run). My husband and I are qualified athletics coaches who work with the UK's top Olympic coaches to train the local children/teenagers, and we can offer any advice on good places to train.
The trendy London area of Islington, with its bustling restaurants and curios shops - a bus leaves from 50 metres away and you will be there in 15 minutes. Stoke Newington is also one of London's top Bohemian areas and is only a 10 minute walk through Clissold Park.
If you like seeing Art, we have membership of the Royal Academy on Piccadilly which has some fabulous exhibitions - it is worth going just to enjoy the members room and the building's architecture!
Located in a large Victorian House, the room is sunny, warm and welcoming with a large bay window (with sash windows that can open), an original old Victorian feature fireplace, a double wrought iron bed and polished wooden floors, reminding you of its former life in Victorian times as a "gentleman's boarding house" - many original features still remain in the house - so a touch of London history.
The house has two shower rooms and one spa bathroom, plus a separate toilet and so you will never have to queue!! - so more time to explore London!
You also have two kitchens to choose from to use, both with their own dining areas.
We can also be very flexible on arrival and departure times. If you need to leave your bags after check-out we are happy to guard them, while you enjoy London - just return later to collect them.
We love to meet people from other countries and share what this wonderful city has to offer.

La casa es un poco caótica, falta organización y dedicación.

Rachel ist freundlich, gesprächig und energie-geladen. Aber sie hat ständig viel zu tun, steht ständig unter Strom und hat keine Zeit. Ihr Mann ist eher ruhig, wortkarg, meist anwesend, kümmert sich aber nicht viel um die Zustände im Haus. Offenbar ist ihnen beiden die Situation egal, die Vermüllung des Hauses nehmen sie schon gar nicht mehr wahr, weil es der Normalzustand ist.
