Great Place. Great Location!
My wife and our three teenagers really enjoyed our week-long stay here.
This is a 19th century three-story town home located on a quiet side street just a block off of Camden's bustling High Street.
The Stables Market is literally across the street, canals nearby and only a 10min. walk to the tube. Buses stop at the top of the street to take you anywhere you want to go in the City. We were all armed with Oyster Cards which I highly recommend for unlimited travel on bus and tube system. Restaurants, food vendors, Grocery Store, Pubs, etc. are all within blocks of this property.
The house itself has all the amenities that you could ask for. Three bedrooms, two baths, flexible sleeping for eight- all combined with an ample living area that connects to a large, beautiful modern kitchen that opens-up to a lovely walled garden with umbrella seating and a fold-away ping-pong table- which saw a lot of use during our stay.
The owners, Mick and Joan clearly enjoy what they do. They made the whole process of booking, arrival and departure painless and easy. They are kind and gracious hosts.
The property could not have been better situated or suited to our needs. It provided the experience of feeling like "locals" in a dynamic and distinct London neighborhood; while having easy access to all the major tourist sites without having stay in a hotel amidst hordes of tourists in Central London. My wife and I had been to London several times before- but now with our children we could experience not only the great changes that have occurred since we were there- but the whole experience of being in a major World Capital through their eyes.
After fighting through the crowds at the "must-see" sights for a couple of days, we all found ourselves enjoying what Camden Town itself has to offer for the remainder of our stay. Regent's Park and the London Zoo are an easy walk. Take a canal boat through the locks and try to believe you're in London while you quietly glide past the backyards of stately homes and end-up in the houseboat community of Little Venice. The Stables Market is huge and one could wander through this massive 19th century complex for days. This property provided sanctuary for family breakfasts or dinners along with the amenities that made you just want to hang-out for a quiet afternoon of reading, ping-pong or just spending time together. Five stars!
Owner's Response: It was a pleasure meeting you and your family on arrival, for both of us this is the best part of what we do,as this is our only property we tend to put all of our persanal time and effort into making everything as we would expect to find in a holiday property,
To be treated and caired for as you become part of our family for your stay with us, in the past we have had brides staying and Joan arranges flowers all around the front room and other things and at Xmas we bring out the xmas trees and garlands as well as getting Xmas food if we are asked and we put things in the kitchen from us as personal christmas gifts,
