We offer a clean, bright, modern, 3 bedroom flat with high ceilings, full length french windows in every room and 2 bathrooms, situated on a cycle path just 3 minutes walk from London Fields - just 11 minutes to the City!
We have a toddler, so if needed our home is perfect for families, we can provide a highchair, toys, cot etc. Otherwise we are very well located and set up for fantastic child free visits!
The apartment is located on the 3rd floor of a new building. There is a lift and a video intercom.
The entrance hallway of the apartment is wide and bright and has 2 large storage spaces on either side for coats, shoes, luggage, etc.
At the end of the hallway is a spacious living area with a large dining table that has been in the family for generations, a big comfy sofa, Sky TV and a well equipped Kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher. We have Wifi throughout the apartment.
The main bedroom is bright and spacious, with a double bed and en-suite bathroom with shower and WC.
Next to the main bedroom, the second bedroom is currently used childs room, with a sofabed and cot, with some bookshelves and drawers- this provides loads of flexibility, allowing you to use the space either as a bedroom for an adult, child or both. The sofa bed makes a fairly small double bed - although couples have slept there, it is probably better suited to a single person or children.
The third bedroom offers a full double bed, some shelves and drawers, and a desk with printer and large double french-style windows, so it is very bright and airy.
Across the hallway from the third bedroom is a large bathroom, consisting of bath, shower and WC.
If you are visiting London on business, you will find Shoreditch, the City of London and Canary Wharf are all within easy striking distance.
In fact, the location is a real treat - it's our favourite area of London! We are just minutes from excellent cafes, markets, green spaces, neighbourhood restaurants, an excellent bakery, local brewery and lots of quality local pubs. The famous Hackney Empire theater, the Picture House Cinema and the Hackney Museum are just a 2 minute walk from the front door.
We are located between London Fields train station (3 minute walk), Hackney Central Overground (5 minute walk), and Hackney Town Hall bus stops (2 minute walk). Trains from London Fields will get you into the City in just 10 minutes.
We are a short walk across London Fields from buzzing Broadway Market, which has a great array of food stalls, antiques, jumble, music, cafes and so on. Beyond Broadway Market is the pretty area of Columbia Road - famous for it's flower market, and a wonderful collection of antique and furniture shops, this is a great place to explore. Continuing on from Columbia road, you soon find yourself at Brick Lane in the heart of Shoreditch, famous for international cuisine, extensive Sunday markets and a hot spot for street art and hipster bars and cafes.
Further afield, the Overground line from Hackney Central offers direct trains to Islington, Camden Markets, Hampstead Heath and Kew Gardens, also Stratford for the Olympic Park and Westfield shopping center.
We are a young couple who have been living in London for the past 6 years. The living room and dining table is a naturally sociable and welcoming environment, and we like that guests can feel at home here. Our living space is great for entertaining, the dining table can seat ten when needed and we have kitchen equirptemnt to match. We have traveled the world and we use AirBnB as guests, so we have a good understanding of our guest's needs.
We have plenty of maps and guidebooks of the local area that we can loan you during your stay. We also have an extensive list of favourite eateries and coffee places all over London, and we really enjoy sharing our knowledge and passion for this wonderful city.
The apartment offers a great location, plenty of space, friendly and welcoming hosts and freedom to enjoy your time in London to its fullest.
We will either meet our guests, or a close friend will be on hand. In either someone will be on the end of a phone, or text to help if any problems arise. We have lovely neighbours, too!
We have (very friendly!) neighbours on both sides, so we do ask that noise is kept to a minimum from about 11pm.
We provide fresh towels and sheets at the start of your stay, after that it is up to you to make use of the washing machine and drying cupboard as you require. If you require a cleaner during your stay, we can arrange that in advance and at your own expense.
Above all - make yourself at home! We want you to have a great stay here, so ask us if you have any queries at all.
