Enfield Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Chalkley's (2 bedrs -sleeps 4), The Stables ( 1 bedr- sleeps 2) 4**** rated

INTRODUCING THE OLD BAKERY: This 17th Century building is a Grade II listed historic house and stands at the heart of the delightful Winchmore Hill conservation area. Fast trains to the centre are just 2 minutes walk away & take you in 25 minutes to the West End, theatreland, shops, tourist sites and museums, and the Eurostar terminal. Cafes, restaurants, pubs and shops are nearby on Winchmore Hill Green, which retains the charm of past times, yet is very much part of modern London.

We offer family-run accommodation with a friendly welcome. The apartments are 4 ****star-rated by Visit Britain. Bedlinen & towels are supplied. WiFi is free.

OUR TWO APARTMENTS:

'CHALKLEY'S' (sleeps 4), is a cottage style apartment (on 2 floors) in the historic 17th Century bakehouse - a charming holiday home with impressive beams and fireplaces. Your home-from-home, is elegantly furnished with antique furniture, original paintings and comfy beds. Our guests say that the experience of staying in this charming home is a highlight of their stay in London. 'Chalkley's' accomodates 4 guests and so is ideal for a family of four or for two couples. There are two double, en-suite bedrooms, an elegant living room, spacious dining room & kitchen. Modern kitchen facilities make it ideal for self-catering holidays. The nearby 'Deli-on-the-Green' and 'The Larder' make food buying a pleasure rather than a chore . The apartment can be rented in a one bedroom format, suitable for 2 guests (sharing a bedroom), at a discounted rent.

The apartment is named after the Chalkley family who ran the Bakery for four generations.

THE STABLES:

This cosy, romantic cottage is situated in the secluded walled garden of The Old Bakery, with direct gated access to the street and to Winchmore Hill Green. It consists of a living/dining room, kitchen, shower-room and double bedroom in the eaves. The Stables have their own patio area where out guests enjoy breakfasts among the flowers and romantic evening drinks. .

Winchmore Hill is a delightful and safe area of London, popular with Londoners because of its excellent, fast train links to the West End and City centre. It was in 1871, when the railway came to Winchmore Hill, that a sleepy village became a commuter suburb of London and prosperous City workers built new homes in streets around the ancient village Green. The Old Bakery is close to the station, just two minutes' walk. The nearby shops, 'Deli-on-the-Green' and 'The Larder', make food buying a pleasure rather than a chore. If you wish to eat out, there are high quality restaurants, cafes and pubs nearby. There is also a large supermarket a short walk from the Old Bakery.

Self-catering accommodation at The Old Bakery offers you a more relaxing and more economical option to hotels. At The Old Bakery, you have your own home-from-home where you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings before and after your day's site-seeing in the centre of London.

This is a family-run business. We pride ourselves on our personal service and friendly welcome to all our guests. We enjoy sharing the beauty of this historic building with you.

The village origins of Winchmore Hill (first mentioned in the history books in the 14th century as a village on the route to the Royal Hunting Forest) still reveal themselves in the historic buildings around The Green, and in a friendly community atmosphere, unusual in a capital City like London.

OUR HISTORY:

The Old Bakery is believed to have begun life in about 1595AD as a village hall with central huge fireplace and vaulted ceiling, before becoming, first, a farmhouse, then, in 1822AD, the village Bakehouse, and finally a private home . The Bakery was run for many years by Quakers and Winchmore Hill was an historic a centre of early Quakerism. The nearby Quaker Meeting House is still in use, surrounded by a beautiful garden.

About Nina Anstee

My first husband, Clive, and I brought the Bakery in 1978. Restoring and preserving its historic fabric became a labour of love. Originally we used the whole of the Old Bakery as a family home. Clive was a classical musician and both our children were studying instruments. So it was well used for rehearsal and practice. My children, Karen and Stephen, are both professional musicians. Stephen plays the cello and Karen the violin. In 1986, Clive died and soon my children became adults and had homes and, eventually, families of their own. I decided to divide the house into two parts, thus creating 'Chalkley's' apartment. I converted the Stables to a guest house about ten years ago,

For many years, I worked in Fundraising and raised funds for historic buildings including Worcester College Oxford, The King Charles Court at Royal Greenwich and (my final project) St Paul's Cathedral. I then re-trained as a Psychotherapist and have private practice in Winchmore Hill.

My second husband, Bruce, is a scientist working on Environmental issues.

Bruce has three adult children and we now have ten grandchildren between us! The eldest is Zachary aged 18 and the youngest is baby Gabriel who was born in April 2013. My son, Stephen and his French wife Amelie (also a musician) have 3 year old twins Elliot and Ariane whom I often look after, which is a real joy.

Our children and grandchildren frequently gather here for meals. When there is a birthday to celebrate it is usually a case of 'Let's go to Mum's'. Fortunately, Bruce is an excellent and enthusiastic cook. The photo above is of the family gathering for Zachary's 18th birthday. I am the one wearing a flowery jacket and holding Elliot, aged 3 years. In order round the table, Amelie (back to camera) me, Nat, Zach, Karen, Gabriel (not the baby Gabriel but his older cousin!) Martin (a friend from New York) and Stephen holding Ariane (Elliot's twin sister).

Nina Anstee purchased this apartment in 1978

Why Nina Anstee chose Enfield

Winchmore Hill is a wonderful place to live. It combines fast access to the centre of London with pleasant surroundings, good independently-run shops and restaurants, and a thriving and friendly community. These last qualities are rare in large capital cities.I frequently join local friends at the Deli-on-the-Green for morning coffee, when we talk over local issues, discuss the latest news or have friendly disagreements about politics. In the warmer weather I love to walk in beautiful Grovelands Park. The Park was once the grounds of 18th century Grovelands House (designed by John Adams) but was bought by the far-sighted local Council 100 years ago as a amenity for the neighbourhood.

At weekends Bruce and I usually go to the theatre, a concert, or to the National Film Theatre. The great thing about Winchmore Hill is that it is easy to pop into the centre - for a bit of Oxford Street shopping, or to visit Borough Food Market, for example - while also enjoying a great neighbourhood.

What makes this apartment unique

When I first saw The Old Bakery, the fireplace in Chalkley's dining room brought back childhood memories of my grandfather reading by his newspaper by the fireside in his Tudor period house. I love The Old Bakery's spaciousness, its charm, its excentricities and its warm family atmosphere.

When we bought The Old Bakery we spent a lot of time finding the original features hidden beneath inappropriate 'modernisations'. I have taken pride in conserving the building's historic fabric and bringing The Old Bakery's facilities up to high contemporary standards without compromising its character and atmosphere. About ten years ago, I transformed The Stables ( where the baker's horses lived until the1940s) into a delightful one bedroom cottage (also available as a holiday apartment).

Perfect accommodation, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5
We had a really wonderful stay at The Old Bakery. Nina was extremely friendly and helpful. The Old Bakery is located by The Green in Winchmore Hill. A lovely location. Great deli opposite, supermarkets nearby, fabulous Indian Restaurant (Winchmore Tandoori) Only one minute from the station .... and yet we didn't hear a train once in the house! 25 minutes in to London. Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Highly recommended and I'm sure we'll be back.

Owner's Response: We were pleased to welcome this delightful family to stay in "Chalkley's" apartment, and it is good to know that they enjoyed the delights of Winchmore Hill as much as they did their central London sight-seeing. I will tell the Deli and the Tandoori restaurant that they had shared in this guest's kind review. The Deli is where I read the newspaper most mornings! We too find the closeness of the station a great boon. It makes popping into the West End very easy.

Quaint, clean apartment in "village" surroundings

Quaint, clean apartment in "village" surroundings
  • 5 of 5
The Old Bakery lived up to our expectations and provided comfortable and cozy accommodation for a family of four in charming and slightly posh Winchmore Hill (WH).

We were met by the proprietor's son, who showed us everything and made us feel really welcome. In the living rooom there were fresh tulips and in the fridge even some freshly bought food.

Even though the building obviously is several hundred years old and the rooms hence are small and low-ceilinged, the facilities are modern and adequate and everything is clean and in perfect working order. During our oval weekend we found little to complain about. My only grief was that the doors are quite low, so persons over 1.80 m must take care negotiating them to avoid bumps in the top of their head. The stairs between the floors are steep and narrow, but still no challenge to kids and youngish people like ourselves.

We planned to use WH as a base for our excursions to central London, and as the train station is only a few minutes away and the train ride in to the city is only 25-30 minutes, this proved to be a winner strategy. Coming back to WH after a day of sightseeing in town was like coming to a village in the countryside: Quiet, with narrow streets and well-maintained houses and gardens. The immediate surroundings offer ample choice of good pubs, tea rooms and small restaurants, as well as shops and groceries.

Eating: We can really recommend the turkish restaurant on the Green, Samdan, that serves great mezes and other dishes for a reasonable price.The Greek on the Green is also good value, but lacks a bit in atmosphere.

Transport: Getting to WH from Stansted airport was a breeze, thanks to a taxi from the local company Greenfox that were waiting for us and took us to our door for around 45 pounds, cheaper than taking the train - and much more convenient. They also picked us up for our return trip,

Conclusion: We would love to go back any time and can totally recommend The Old Bakery to anyone without a disability!

Owner's Response: I am so glad that these visitors from Norway enjoyed Winchmore Hill. We all think it is one of the best places in London to live. I concur with their recommendation of Samdan, the Turkish restaurant on the Green. We love it too.
The Old Bakery dates (in part) from 1595AD. So it is over 400 years old. The rest of the building was built in 1722AD. Chalkley's dining room and one of the bedrooms is in the oldest part of the building; the living room and the bedroom above it are in the "modern" extension meaning they are only a mere 292 years old! I fell in love with the atmosphere of the Old Bakery when I first saw it in 1978, and I bought it immediately. I then spent 25 year gradually restoring it and putting in nice bathrooms and kitchens etc. We very much enjoy sharing it with our guests. Nina

Hello London!

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed our stay at the Old Bakery. The house was clean and very well maintained, and Nina was a wonderful hostess (and her son too, who greeted us on arrival on her behalf). She was very responsive by email and was easy to get ahold of when needed. she provides loads of books and pamphlets to aid you in sightseeing (even Rick Steves haha). We love the affordability and value of a vacation rental, and this didn't disappoint.

The rental is very convenient to the train station and a bus stop, perfect for getting to the city in about 30 min, with a change to an Underground... Just be sure to factor this into your scheduling, and avoid rush hour. The shopping area and restaurants around the rental are all excellent, especially the deli across the street. The area itself is worth spending some time exploring, There is a beautiful park nearby, and Rocco's had some delicious gelato.

I would recommend this rental to anyone, my mother was along with us and loved it. Thanks, Nina and Stephen, for making our stay in London so enjoyable and perfect for exploring locally and in the city.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that these guests from Colorado enjoyed their stay here at The Old Bakery, and that they found our collection of guides to London useful. Some of our guests only have a few days in London and want to see as much as possible in a short time. For them we provide "100 best things to see in London". Other guests already know the City quite well and enjoy discovering some less well-known but wonderful places. So, for them we provide a number of very comprehensive London guide books, museum guides, a book of walks around London, and a great book called "Hidden Houses". As well as published guides, we offer, in our information folder, our own suggestions for days out in London. I recently added a suggestion to the list for a walk along the Thames, after myself spending a delightful summer day exploring the Thames Path and visiting Richmond and Kew gardens (not one for the winter though!).

We always hope that our guests will find time to enjoy Winchmore Hill. I am going to tell Kay and Andrea at the Deli that their shop was much appreciated by these visitors. Kay and Andrea deserve praise for running such an excellent shop and café. I am often found there at 9am, reading the paper over a cup of coffee.

Re: London travel. Rush hour is indeed best avoided! The crush can be horrible and only Londoners commuting to work, who have no choice, travel at the busiest periods of the day. Avoid 7am - 9.30am, have a leisurely breakfast, and your travel will be both cheaper and much more comfortable.

Ideal home away from home.

  • 5 of 5
Chalkleys is an ideal home away from home and the photos don't do it justice. It's so adorable and everything you could want in a getaway location. It's absolutely spotless and the only thing missing would be to go back in time for the aroma of freshly baked bread. :) I'd definitely take Nina's advice when it comes to going to Southgate and then getting a taxi, as the number of stairs involved at Finsbury Park station are difficult to negotiate with a suitcase.
My hosts went above and beyond when it came to making my visit everything I hoped it would be, down to the milk, bread and eggs upon arrival. Thank you so much !
The location is perfect for getting into London easy enough by train and such a welcome home after a busy day sightseeing.
The stairs leading up to the bedroom/s, bathroom and kitchen are very steep and narrow so not recommended for someone with difficulties getting up and down stairs, although delightful baskets are provided so you can carry your dishes etc down the stairs and still have a hand free to hold the rail. :) The shower is a dream on a cold night, although there is not much hot water pressure in both the bathroom and kitchen sink.
The area itself is so gorgeous and everyone has been so friendly. It's a pleasure to just walk around the neighborhood and Grovelands Park is a must see.
I'm here for another week out of a two week visit and I would highly recommend this as an ideal place to call home while you're on vacation. I know I am going to be sad to leave but hope I can come back again.
As you can tell I am totally enjoying my stay here, and wanted to let everyone know this even before I leave. Well done Nina...you have a dream location.

Owner's Response: How nice to have a review posted while the guest is still staying in Chalkley's! And such a lovely review too. I glad that this guest has found walking in Grovelands Park a pleasure, even at this exceptionally cold (for London) time. Grovelands Park was once the grounds of a stately home, but was bought and made public by a very enlightened local community and is a beautiful place to have a walk, especially in the Summer.

Fabulous holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful period house for 4 nights on the occasion of a family reunion and could not have found a nicer place. The house is tastefully furnished, well equipped, clean, comfortable and utterly charming. Nina, the owner, helped us with all sorts of information - thank you also for the restaurant recommendations, Nina, we had some great dinners! Winchmore Hill itself is a pretty little town with all the facilities needed, and commuting to Enfield town and London by public transport is very easy and fast. Coming home to this green, quiet retreat after a busy day in London is heaven! My husband and I will definitely be back and will certainly recommend the house to our friends

A perfect home away from home in London

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay at the Stables in Winchmore Hill. The Stables was the perfect size for my husband and me to use as our base for seeing London and the Olympics. The town is big enough to have all the necessary conveniences nearby, but far enough out of Central London to be neighborly and quiet. The train station is just around the corner and the trains will take you wherever you want to go. There are a number of good places to eat right in Winchmore Hill (we loved the King's Head Pub, Queen's Head Pub and the wonderful Deli right across the street from the Stables) and getting to Central London to shop or eat is very easy. Nina was the perfect host and was mot gracious and helpful during our stay. We were traveling with our teenage children, so we also rented Chalkey's so that they could be nearby, but have their own space. The neighborhood was very safe and the children enjoyed exploring on their own. They also enjoyed the free internet and television with many channels.

The garden outside the Stables was lovely and the unit was very clean. The ladder up to the sleeping area is steep, but very manageable. Overall, our stay could not have been better. The location is perfect and gives one a taste of history with all the modern conveniences. We recommend it heartily to anyone wishing to have a relaxing stay with plenty of room to spread out. It was the perfect home base for our travels to the Olympics and our visit to Winchmore Hill will be treasured until we are able to visit again!

Winchmore Hill is a pleasant residential area of London from which trains take you to the West End's theatres, museums, galleries and shops in just 25-30 minutes. The City (St Paul's Cathedral, The Millennium Bridge, Shakespeare's Globe, Tate Modern) is equally accessible by train.

The Old Bakery (a working bakery known as Chalkley's Bakehouse until 1945), is one of a group of 17Th century buildings near the 'village' Green, which is a historic Conservation Area. The Green has charming pubs, restaurants and traditional tea-rooms, as well excellent food shopping.

In the 1660s, Winchmore Hill became one of the earliest Quaker communities, founded by George Chalkley. His son, Thomas, emigrated to America and became a famous preacher. The Quaker Meeting House and the Old School House are nearby.

The university City of Cambridge can be reached by train in 1 hour 15 minutes, and beautiful Hatfield House (where Queen Elizabeth I lived before becoming Queen) in 45 minutes.

Notes:
'Chalkley's' is named after the family of bakers who ran the bakery for 4 generations. You will see photographs of the Chalkley family (and their horse!) in the dining room. This apartment is in a part of the earliest part of the Old Bakery, which was originally a farmhouse built in around 1600AD. At some point in its history this farmhouse was joined to the later (circa 1800) adjacent bakery building The Old Bakery is one of the few remaining buildings of this age and as such is preserved and legally protected as a house of historic importance. Please note that the staircase in Chalkley's is typical of a house of this age and is therefore steeper and narrower than a modern staircase (but it only has nine steps!). So this apartment may not be suitable if you have difficulty with stairs. The kitchen is up these stairs but bakers' baskets are provided for carrying crockery etc.
