“One of London's favorite 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.”
“As one of London's oldest pubs, The Spaniards has earned itself a place in the history books, quite literally. Dickens immortalized 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 ambiance: 19th century English pine dressers, tables and the central bar, colorful 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.”
“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.”

I have lived in this are my entire life and believe it is one of the best neighborhoods in London.
Self contained, original features(fireplace), Victorian charm, modern kitchen, patio garden, unique, quiet and secluded, proximity to all transport, fashionable area
Lovely flat, great location! But.... they don't show or tell you the toilet closet and shower opposite it are in a pass through between living room and bedroom. The extractor fan wasn't working in the specific toilet closet, which really stunk ( haha!) and unfortunately they didn't get it fixed, although told on the first night we stayed there. I just assumed it had a more normal bathroom and when traveling with a new companion, I would've appreciated a little more privacy and proper ventilation. That being said, I lived in the U.K. for over a decade and know things are different and appreciate the clean, modern feel of the renovated flat, on the whole.
There is not really much to add to the earlier reviews except to confirm them. This is a very nice apartment in an excellent location I'm almost reluctant to recommend, because it might mean too many folks are going to make it difficult to make a reservation!
The flat was an excellent value and had all the amenities that we needed. It was very nice to have a washing machine. The location is very close to the Belsize Underground which is on the Northern line. The area is very nice well worth some time exploring. There is grocery shopping and restaurants/pubs that are very close. Emily, the owner of the flat was very helpful and always responded very quickly.
This comfortable apartment is clean, fresh, and quiet--just what we needed as a home base for exploring London. Emily was a pleasure to work with and Phil, the building manager, met us upon arrival and helped us with our questions as needed.
We loved the location, close to Belsize Park tube station, charming shops, restaurants, and Gail’s Artisan Bakery, where we often bought a lunch to take with us on our sightseeing adventures. All in all, a delightful place to call home for a week.
Nice property in great location
Easy to walk to shops and other things
Lots to do in area
Helpful owner and property manager
My husband and I frequently vacation in London and try to stay in a different area each time we visit. We've seen all the top sights so decided to stay in a quieter, less-touristy neighbourhood. Emily's Suite 9 apartment in Belsize Park was perfect for our two-week stay. The tube station, bus stops and grocery store were just up the road on Haverstock Hill. There were many shops, restaurants, cafes, bakeries & pubs in the neighbourhood but with our busy schedule of museum visits, theatre outings and walking tours, it was easier to eat most of our meals "at home". The apartment itself was clean, modern and well-designed. We loved the comfy bed and super-sized shower cubicle. Phil, the building manager who met us on our arrival, was very friendly and able to answer all of our questions. Thanks, Emily, for your prompt replies to our pre-arrival questions, too. With any luck, we'll be able to stay in your lovely apartment when we visit London again.
