About the property

London flat for 2 people with all modern facilities great transport links

An ideal rental property for 1 person or a couple on an extended stay in London looking for a comfortable home from home.

This is a split level, one-bedroom apartment on the 1st floor (not ground floor) of an end-of-terrace Victorian house. It has been decorated and furnished with loving care as it the home of the owners when they come to England. Located in a quiet tree-lined road with resident parking and just 100 meters away from shops, pubs, cafés and transport links. Finsbury Park underground/train and bus stations (Zone 2) are only a 10 minute walk away. The apartment is bright, with a practical lay-out and fully-equipped for a really pleasant stay.

Inside the flat: The living room is very bright with a large bay window overlooking a characteristic Gothic-style church. It has a Victorian fireplace and some very beautiful period pieces of furniture. There is a TV with free-view cable channels and a DVD player with a selections of films. The phone can be used to make calls to landlines in most countries worldwide free of charge and there is also limitless fast broadband WI-FI Internet access. The dining table seats four as does the comfy sofa and rocking chair.

The kitchen has all the necessary appliances and cooking equipment and a folding breakfast table with bar stools. The spacious bathroom has a bath tub, stand-up shower and a hand-held shower attachment. 5 steps lead from the entrance hall down to the lower-level bedroom with double bed, fitted wardrobe and chest of drawers. The apartment is fully double glazed which means it is quiet all year round and nice and warm in winter.

The surrounding area: Stroud Green is part of the Borough of Islington. It is in the North of London (zone 2) and extremely well connected, The closest underground station is Finsbury Park which has two lines (Piccadilly and Victoria) taking you into all parts of central London in less than 10 minutes. Heathrow airport terminals are on the Piccadilly Line. There is also a large bus terminal and railway station. Crouch Hill railway station is just 1 km away, as is Manor House tube station.

Just across the road from the apartment is a little grocery shop, open 16 hours a day and approx 600 meters away is a long high street with a large supermarket, bars, pubs, cafés, post office, banks, theatre, restaurants, medical centre... just about everything really.

Finsbury Park is just 700 metres away, one of London's larger parks. It has a beautiful lake and flower gardens, tennis courts, jogging paths and football pitches. It is also the venue of some interesting festivals and fairs.

London on your doorstep: there is no end to the things you can do and see in London. Whatever your purpose for staying in this wonderful city whether for an extended holiday, study or work this apartment can certainly fit your needs.

Convenient, Sunny, Well Equipped Flat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a month in this convenient London flat and were very happy with our stay. The apartment looks exactly as shown in the photographs, and has fast internet, a clothes washer, a well equipped kitchen, and a great soaking tub. My husband and I loved the separation of the bedroom down the hall from the living area, so that if our bedtimes were different, we didn't disturb the person who went to bed earlier. The apartment is just a few blocks from the Finsbury Park tube station, which has the Victoria and Piccadilly lines to take you anywhere in the city. It is close to bus stops too. We purchased an Oyster card and used the tube almost daily because of its convenience. When we arrived, Patricia was waiting for us, and took the time to show us how all the appliances worked, answer our questions, and give us the keys. We loved the fact that there was free long distance calling to America on the land line. We were able to get in contact with our friends and family, and take care of some business too. All in all, a wonderful stay, in a very clean and welcoming apartment. We hope to return some day soon!

Nice apartment in quiet but central location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just spent a wonderful month in this lovely London apartment. It was a perfect base for travelling around London and a cosy and comfortable home to come back to after our days out in the city. It really is well connected by public transport and we also enjoyed discovering the local area. There are some really good restaurants in the neighbourhood. When we arrived Delia greeted us warmly and gave us all the information we needed for our stay. The kitchen was well equipped with kitchenware and appliances and everything was provided, from cleaning products down to little extras like freezer bags and batteries. Everything was spotlessly clean and the antique furniture gives you a real feel of an English home and not the usual bland rental accommodation. There's a lovely view of the street and church from the living room and the bedroom is tucked away at the back of the apartment. The bed is really comfy, but just a standard English double, which is slightly smaller than we are used to back home. I highly recommend this

apartment to anyone wanting to stay in London and we plan to spend another 5 weeks there at the end of next year.

This apartment is located in Stroud Green, a popular, multi-cultural area in the borough of Islington, North London. It offers something for everyone: theatre, fantastic restaurants, street cafes, patisseries, boutiques, specialised grocery shops, arts and crafts, traditional pubs and the beautiful Finsbury Park with its boating lake....all just a short walk away from the apartment in its quiet, tree-lined residential road.

Another important consideration is that the cost of living is more affordable than the more touristy areas of London.

One of the key features of this area is its fantastic transport links. Finsbury Park Station is an important hub offering dozens of bus lines, 2 Underground lines (Victoria and Piccadilly) and several overground railway services.

It only takes 10 minutes on the Underground to reach Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street and all areas of central London. If you want to get out of the city, just take a direct train to Cambridge, Windsor and Oxford.
