Steps throughout the property. The property is not suitable for children under five years due to the open stairs leading to the kitchen area. If you are bringing children to the property we would recommend that they are supervised at all times especially on the open stairs leading to the kitchen area. Although we are just outside the congestion zone, a car is not essential in central London. However should you be driving to the property there are on-street parking meters nearby. Long term car parking facilities are available within 800 m of the property. If you are a 'Zipcar' member (car sharing scheme) there is a bay within 100 m of the property. Or if you prefer to explore London by bicycle, 'Boris Bikes' (bicycle hire scheme) are within 500 m of the property. Alternatively public transport (buses) is available at the bottom of the street. Within 100m of the property is a lovely enclosed public garden - a lovely place to sit and relax after a busy day seeing the sights

Well equipped very comfortable and welcoming home. We felt at home straight away

  • 5 of 5

The house was welcoming and very comfortable. It had all we needed for our stay. Our three almost teenagers were very impressed with the space, and my Mother was too. Access to shops, restaurants and transport was great, and we loved all the green spaces locally and especially the canal walks. It was a great base for our week in London.

Great place for family stay in London!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a comfortable and convenient trip to London staying at Diane's house. The receptions and large kitchen-dining room gave parents and young-adult children plenty of room to spread out. The fifteen-minute walk to the Tube was along a lovely canal. From the lengthy, pre-stay letter of instructions for the home and tips for the surrounding area, to the welcome chocolate and wine, to the response to a faulty light, Diane was an attentive and responsive host. We would love to return to London and her townhouse!

A comfortable home in a trendy area with nearby public transport links

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay for family and friends meeting for a concert nearby. The house with its great kitchen/ dining/ sitting and office area plus 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms was just what we needed. The owners are easy to deal with and make the experience effortless. The area is very quiet with easy access to Islington, the canal for walks to nearby markets and buses/ tube. We caught a bus not 5 minutes walk way all the way to Aldwych for a show. Recommended.

Quiet and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed as a family of three generations and found the layout worked really well for us. The kitchen/diner is very spacious and we spent a lot of time in that room just relaxing and enjoying the welcome gifts but had the bonus of a separate lounge as well. Diane was very prompt at dealing with queries and responded quickly by email from the initial enquiry. Damage deposit was also returned promptly. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Ideal London Base

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Arlington Avenue. The house is a perfect base to visit London as it is in a quiet area but within easy access of Upper Street and all that Islington has to offer. Public transport into Central London is also close by. The house is extremely comfortable with wi-fi access and many other attributes which make it feel like a home from home. Thank you Diane for another successful London visit.

Fantastic location, Spacious.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely experience, every facility was provided including wine and chocolates on the kitchen table on our arrival. Good wifi and hifi . Flat screen tv and the radio was tuned to radio 4 , The property was clean and the landlady was very helpful to our every request. We used the house as a base for our daughters wedding and the morning after it was lovely to go for a walk around the well maintained small park opposite the house and the nearby regents canal.
