One of a kind country style home located steps from famous Spitalfields market and Brick Lane. Set off the street in a private courtyard, enjoy peace and tranquility amidst the energy and excitement of one of London's most vibrant neighborhoods.

The space

A lovely 1 bedroom cottage set on a private courtyard (shared with four other homes) between two of London's most picturesque streets. Our quiet courtyard is the perfect place for dining al fresco (feel free to use our table/chairs and BBQ) or for relaxing in peace after a day exploring the city.

The apartment is one bedroom, one bathroom with a full living room and kitchen/dining area upstairs. Please make yourself at home by making use of the kitchen. We also have SodaStream for sparkling water, Britta for delicious morning espressos, a full-size fridge and dishwasher, oven and tea kettle.

Enjoy your meal at our dining table or couch in front of the fireplace with a bit of entertainment (TV with access to HBO, Showtime, Netflix etc). Plenty of books if you get bored, a giant map if you need to brush up on your geography, and momentos of our travels if you want inspiration!

Bedroom has a queen bed and we have a double blow up mattress which fits nicely in the living room.

Towels, linens, shampoo, soap all provided. You're also welcome to use our washer/dryer as needed.

My family spent 1 week in this beautiful apartment. Everything was as described and photos well represent the apt. The location is central, near to Liverpool street station which is perfect if you arrive from Stansted Airport, and well relied to the Tube. I think is really the best you can find for a couple, but also with 1 or 2 children (like us) it is really o.k. Nicole wasn't there, but it was easy to contact her via e-mail.

This is our second time staying at the property and it is as quiet, convenient and appropriate for our trip as the first time! We love the convenient location, charming neighborhood and convenience to fabulous Spitafield Market! Ross is helpful and flexible as always! He even let me borrow his air mattress for our next flat! The flat comes with all almost all the little things you'll need, (sans hair dryer and hangers/hanging space) for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed the kitchen tremendously with its ample supply of kitchenware. The first night was super chilly, since the pilot was off, understandable in June. Ross also responded quickly to help me turn it on. So all is good after that. The spiral metal staircase within this bi-level flat, which is beautiful and cool for us( mom with 2 teenagers), was a bit narrow and difficult for my 80year old mother to climb up and down. Just something to be aware of when booking. We will definitely stay here again!

The apartment was absolutely perfect, nothing to fault! Exactly as described. After climbing through the little elf door we were shocked at the beautiful little courtyard and cottage. There is no noise at all when you're in the house which is perfect as we came from Devon! Also the comfiest bed I've ever slept in! Perfect location, lots of lovely food and shops around spitalfeilds. Absolutely no faults we loved our stay and would definitely book here again! Thank you very much Ross.

The flat was perfect for my trip to London. The location couldn't be beat and the flat was nicely furnished, extremely clean, and very comfortable. Would definitely stay again!

From our first comunication to the end of our trip, Ross and the gorgeous, clean and inviting flat have been making us feel absolutely at home. I would say that we fell in love with London because of our stay in this wonderful little serene oasis in the heart of Shoreditch. It's a convenient 8 minute walk to the Liverpool Street Station which can take you to overground, underground and other train services. And you can't beat the location near the Spitafield market, actually at the end of your alley, less than 60 seconds walk! There are interesting little boutiques for great shopping and booths after booths of delicious food and unique crafts/clothing from all over the world. I bought a deer-stalker and a coat and ate lots of hot and tasty dishes there. The flat is perfect for us. Bi-level setup gives us three privacy and the atmostphere of the private courtyard and the funky elves' door , plus the awesome neighbors just make this such a special spot in this busy, fun and artsy financial and ethnic district. You are literally living in a counrty cottage in the heart of actions. I plan on making this my second home away from home, if the hosts oblige! We love our 2 week stay in this adorable warm Hobbithole that has everything you need for a terrific vacation in London. We did! Thank you, Ross and your lovely wife for allowing us to share your precious little corner of a fabulous town!

Young professionals recently relocated to London for work. We are from Colorado (USA) and South Africa/New Zealand. We love exploring the city, the country, and Europe while here, and being in the outdoors generally (a bit more challenging in London).

A long time host and frequent guest through Airbnb happy to make your stay as pleasant as possible!
