Charming 2 bedroom flat with balcony is centrally located in Northwest London, near Belsize Park, which is a safe, family and culture filled area nestled between trendy Primrose Hill, lively Camden Lock and market and upmarket Hampstead village.
The apartment comfortably fits 3 people as there is a kingsize bed in main bedroom and single bed in second. The couch in the sitting room not appropriate as a spare bed.
The area, although only short bus ride from the center of town, has a charming village atmosphere, with the busy high street and a lovely range of local shops, restaurants, cafes, charming pubs, bars, a health and beauty spa, the Hampstead theatre (Swiss Cottage), a boutique cinema (the Everyman Belsize Park) and the Imax cinema (Odeon Swiss Cottage) just around the corner. Along with historical landmarks to visit within walking distance, including Keats' House (home of the poet) and Kenwood House (as featured in the film Notting Hill).
Guests have access to the living room, bathroom kitchen and balcony. There is no dishwasher on the premises and no access to the washing machine unless provision made for long bookings
I endeavour to interact personally with the guests (via personal email/mobile when booking made and/or airbnb sms) as much as possible. I travel from time to time and in my absence the management of the enquiries as well as bookings are in the hands of my daughter. I or in my absence, my daughter will continue to meet and welcome the guests on my behalf, at the listing and I do not intend to be present at the listing.
Beautiful Hampstead Heath/Primrose Hill Park and Regents Park (with the Zoo) are reachable on foot or public transport (buses 24/46) Many fantastic restaurants/coffee shops and food shopping centres (Sainsburys/Morrisons/Budgens/ Tesco local) are within walking distance.
“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.”
