This apartment is in a Georgian garden building near central London. Awarded a star by the Plum Guide, you get five star luxury in complete tranquillity. A king (150cm)size bed with bathroom and eat in kitchen. The rooms overlook a pond complete with fountain, sculpture and wooded views. Wifi is fibreoptic. The outside eating area and garden seating make this a truly relaxing base for a visit to London. We are on a DIRECT LINE FROM HEATHROW AIRPORT, so really convenient, and close to the tube.

The space

This space is effectively a self contained studio garden apartment. I have an art studio attached to it, and occasionally I or my daughter or son use it during working hours. However the flat is self contained and we will always respect guests privacy.
Here's a recent review:
"I was so charmed by this place, you’d never expect this lovely little haven to be hidden away so close to Caledonian Road. It’s like opening the door from the city to a little slice of the countryside! There’s such a sense of peace the second you enter the garden with its enchanting wisteria, colourful plants & tranquil little pond. It’s that calming space you can return to after a long day and switch off completely, spend your mornings in the garden & relaxing evenings in the cosy bedroom. The studio feels spacious for it’s size & you really have everything you need for any length of stay. Andy & his daughter’s artist studio is right next door so there’s this creative air about the place & you can admire his paintings throughout the home as well as his antique furniture collection, the ‘cabinet of curiosities’ in the charming farmhouse kitchen and the bathroom with lemon trees & geraniums up by the skylight that give it a greenhouse feel. It’s a truly special find!"

Guest access

There are washing and drying machines available and access is directly into the bedroom through French doors. You may arrive at any time as there is a key safe near the property.

Interaction with guests

I am available at the guest's request, and my twin children help run the property. In the garden flat of the main house that shares the door to the street lives a blues musician and his family. My daughter is often in the studio which shares the same building, but has separate access.

Other things to note

The main house has a garden flat that has its own private patio, but you are likely to meet the very friendly dog. The entrance through the garden wall is shared with the garden flat of the main house.

I can't say enough about this place. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood with a private garden and the fluffiest down bed you'll ever sleep on. It's a bright, cheerful spot that we enjoyed every moment of. Better yet is it's proximity to the Underground, so getting anywhere is easy. You won't be disappointed.

Beautiful apartment with access to and views of a lovely shared garden around a pond. Sun in the morning, a shady outside table in the evening. Inside decor was beautiful, good heating system, food stores, and easy transport either by tube (short walk) or Uber. A quiet and very relaxing place. We would go back. Andy's instructions both before and in the folder in the kitchen were just right, including a hand-drawn map. Thanks Andy.

The kitchen in the room was my favorite. It made me feel at home, microwave oven can be used, and there were plenty of bowls,plates and cups in the cupboard.the tube was not far ,about 6mins on foot, there was a convenient store on the way to tube.bed was clean and comfortable, just felt the shower head water was a little slow.there was a Bluetooth stereo, it was beautiful time to listen to cellphone music while having breakfast ,after all this place is very different from any hotels, I love this feeling.

Response from Andy:
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry if the cleaner hadn't dusted properly. I will get on to her to be more vigilant. I can't do much about the amount of water produced for the shower as it's a combination boiler.

A charming and quirky place, there is everything here. Very clean and comfortable, with a beautiful view of green outside. The bed was very comfortable and I appreciated that the bathroom had a big bath. A fully equipped kitchen was great. The tube was a 6 minute walk, and the bus transport was also very handy. A little piece of quietness right in London. I am going to visit again!

We loved this stay. 5 minutes to the closest tube (Caledonian Rd/ Piccadilly line) and the apartment itself had everything we needed: comfy bed (soft), full kitchen, tub and shower, washing machine, flat screen, Netflix, Wi-fi, close access to good restaurants... and we could get to central London in minutes. We've been to London many times so it was nice to see a different neighborhood and be in our own apartment, with garden, private entrance, and no shared walls! Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a cozy space, doesn't mind walking (although you're going to do that anyway in London) and would appreciate a quiet neighborhood. Would stay there again

Andy made us most welcome and even provided essential supplies to start our weekend away off.The description was accurate and the property was clean and well equipped -a real home from home!!The garden was romantic and peaceful -you wouldnt know you were in London.Very easy to find with clear directions and a stones throw from the Caledonian road tube station making it so easy to get into London. We loved this place and it was an ideal place to celebrate my partners 60th birthday weekend.Most importantly for me it was toasty warm as the weather wasn't that kind ,amazing WIFI and access to an iron and board !! Everything is as described and we will be back in the Spring to enjoy the garden fully with a glass of wine or 2. Thank you once again Andy

Intensiver Mailkontakt vor Reisebeginn mit genauer Beschreibung. Direkter Kontakt vor Ort (wobei wir selten anzutreffen waren). Hinweise auf empfehlenswerte Cafés (zum Frühstücken) wären noch toll.
