LOCATION

The studio is perfectly positioned with excellent public transport links to central London, the Eurostar and airports.

The main feature about this place is its location, the area couldn't be better; it is one of the most desirable, well-sought, green, affluent areas of London.

Belsize Park, a safe, family and culture filled area, is nestled between trendy Primrose Hill, lively Camden Lock and market and upmarket Hampstead village. It is an ideal place from where you can explore London in all its glory and still have plenty of space and a good night’s rest.

5 minutes walk is 'Springhealth' leisure center which can offer you 'payasugym' membership, check out thier website, payasugym.com It's agreat local gym which has a cresh. you are likely to bump in to many of our local celebs, including Helena Bonham-Carter & Chris Martin.

The area, although only short bus ride from the centre of town, has a charming village atmosphere, with the busy high street and a lovely range of local shops, restaurants, cafes, charming pubs, bars, a health and beauty spa, the Hampstead theatre (Swiss Cottage), a boutique cinema (the Everyman Belsize Park) and the Imax cinema (Odeon Swiss Cottage) just around the corner. Along with historical landmarks to visit within walking distance, including Keats’ House (home of the poet) and Kenwood House (as featured in the film Notting Hill).

A short walk down the hill in Camden there is London’s most famous street market as well as a great range of bars, pubs, restaurants and gig venues, including the Roundhouse that hosts theatre and music performances regularly.

In the cobbled mews’ of Hampstead village there are a wide range of shops including teashops, the Hampstead Antiques Emporium for those who like to go antiquing, fashion shops and another boutique cinema (the Everyman Hampstead), all a short walk from the flat.

Best of all is the locality to three of London’s most famous parks. The vast green expanse of Hampstead Heath is only a stone’s throw away with superb views over London and swimming ponds for hot days. The wonderful Primrose Hill, featuring a panoramic view of the city, is 15mins walk away. With Regent's Park the other side of the hill, encompassing London Zoo, a variety of gardens, sports fields, and the renowned outdoor theatre for summer performance.

As you can imagine, it's a great place for celebrity spotting Local residents include Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin, of the band 'Coldplay', Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and many others including the 'Primrose Hill' Set.

LOCAL PUBS

HOLLY BUSH

“One of London's favourite pubs, The Holly Bush has been untouched by the ravages of time and has a captivating old-world charm. Bought from the estate of artist George Romney around 1800 it was turned into a public house and, as the headquarters of the Save Hampstead Heath Society, has played an integral part in the history of Hampstead Heath.”

SPANIARDS INN

“As one of London's oldest pubs, The Spaniards has earned itself a place in the history books, quite literally. Dickens immortalised it in The Pickwick Papers, and it's said that Keats wrote Ode to a Nightingale here over a claret or two. Indeed, our characterful 16th century inn is a romantic idyll in itself, with a few tales of its own to tell (Dick Turpin was apparently born here, need we say more?). A country pub in the city, we boast a garden grand enough to rival the great Heath itself, roaring fires in the winter and plenty of intriguing nooks in which to muse over our superlative drinks menu.”

THE OLD WHITE BEAR

“The interior has been restored to create a stylish yet informal ambience: 19th century English pine dressers, tables and the central bar, colourful tile tabletops and floor area and warm fires. Add the final ingredient of friendly, efficient service and the welcoming “home from home” feel is complete.”

LANSDOWNE

“When the Lansdowne’s doors first opened back in 1992, the aim was simple; to bring quality pub eating to Primrose Hill. Although no-one knew the term at the time, in 17 years that have passed, The Lansdowne has become one of the stalwarts of the gastro-pub scene. Our blackboard menu changes daily and our vibrant Mediterranean cuisine is inspired. Best of all, The Lansdowne has that unmistakable feel of something traditional; large wooden tables, high ceilings, a roaring fire in winter.”

Winter visit

We had a great stay at this flat over Christmas and the New Year. It is a great value. Access to the tube was really easy, and we enjoyed exploring the pubs and restaurants within walking distance (we highly recommend The George). The only things to note are that the shower is very small and washer/dryer combo can only handle tiny loads. Don't run it at night because the spin cycle is quite noisy. The bed needs fixing. The left side would collapse at random intervals and need to be put back together. But overall this is a very comfortable and convenient flat. I would rent it again the next time we visit London!

Owner's Response: Hi Catherine,
Im glad you enjoyed your visite.
I am so sorry about the slats under the mattress.
Enenthough the bed is only just over one year old, we thought it best to replace it.
We've just ordered a king size bed with a 10" memory foam mattress.
Best wishes,
eMILY

London in October

The price is right for this somewhat "spacious" flat. It was clean and comfortable (except very small shower) for our three day stay. It is in an "up and coming" London neighborhood. Property manager was friendly and helpful, though we did not meet Emily. We soon learned the "tube" and got around easily for first-time London tourists. Would consider renting this flat again.

A PERFECT SANCTUARY WHILST VISITING LONDON

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
A large, clean and comfortable room, literally minutes away from the tube and bus lines. Everything you need is provided, even a hair dryer. Emily provides little niceties that makes a simple room become home. The first thing that struck my wife and I as we lay down to sleep the first night was how quiet it was. A sharp contrast to the hubbub of downtown London and a perfect sanctuary. Belsize is one stop away from Hampstead Heath with its commanding views of London and quaint shops. Downtown London is less that fifteen minutes away by tube and I would recommend using it during the week to avoid the crush of pedestrians and the slow progress of the buses.
We will be returning to London and this will be the place I can hopefully book during ourstay.

Thank you Emily for everything -

Marty & Nancy

My month long stay in this studio was fantastic. Emily is a generous host who is keen to welcome
you and help with any problems or questions you might have (and her husband, Brad, is very helpful,too). The studio is exactly as described, even a little bigger than the photos suggest. It is extremely well equipped and comfortable. Its location is ideal, close to the tube, buses, restaurants and a supermarket - all the essentials really. Access to central London is quick and easy.
The only caution I would sound is that the shower stall is pretty small. However, I can heartily recommend Emily's studio to you.

We spent a week in this Belsize Park studio in early December. Having previously stayed in hotels before I was delighted to find a self-catering option in the area. The studio is tastefully decorated, very well furnished and equipped as described,and is in a great situation a few minutes walk from the tube station, an easy link to central London and all it has to offer. Hampstead Heath is a few minutes away for a relaxing walk with wonderful views, and some good upmarket cafés.The owner lives nearby and is available to help if necessary. I plan to be back for another stay next year.

Very nice, comfortable apartment in a lovely, quiet neighbourhood.

The apartment had been recently renovated and was bright and contemporary. While it was a studio apartment there was sufficient space to feel roomy. The kitchen was better equipped than many one bedroom apartments we have stayed in. The owners were there to meet us with the key and to point out the amenities and to ensure that all was in working order. They also followed up during our one week visit to make sure everything was OK. While the location is not within Central London it is in a very quiet and safe neighbourhood and It is also only a very short walk to the Underground station, so all the tourist sites are quickly accessible.The plus is not being stuck in a 'touristy' neighbourhood with its associated hype and prices. I do not need to point out that rental rates are also far more reasonable. There are numerous restaurants in proximity to the apartment. My husband and I would definitely stay here again
