City of London apartment description

Sanctuary in the Square Mile

Right in the very heart of the City of London, Carter Lane is one of the capital's oldest streets. Tucked away in a hidden corner behind the river, this stunningly located two level flat occupies the ground and lower ground floors of a fascinating industrial building. Having undergone recent renovations, you'll find the décor and luxury levels are bang up to date.

But step outside, and you'll discover that little has changed here since the Great Fire in 1666. If you fancy yourself as a modern day Samuel Pepys, then lift your fountain pen and throw open the window. With the Thames fairly lapping at the gate, the chimes of St Paul's ringing in your ears, and seven centuries of London life reverberating through the cobbles, this is the London you've always dreamed of.

Keepers of the keys

Our hosts are a pair of city dwellers with a particular appreciation of London's history. She's a boutique florist, whose arrangements are seen at some of the capital's most marvellous events, when she's not wielding the secateurs she's sharing her knowledge of her beloved city with the uninitiated. Our host is steeped in British Law, and he and our hostess divide their time between Carter Lane, and a little village in Normandy.

Lodging rooms

With Tate Modern five minutes' walk across the river, and the lure of St Paul's just outside, you'll be forgiven for lingering a little before you turn your key in the lock. But when you do, you'll find as much to delight you inside as out. The home's building is an ancient publishing house, and our hosts have indeed furnished it by the book. Comfortable sofas, calming colours, a high spec kitchen and plasma TV mean that you need never feel anything less than entirely at home. Look out for some stunning prints of local vistas, a reminder (as if one was needed) that, while your surroundings might be modern, you're at the very heart of the medieval city.

And when bedtime comes, head down the apples and pears to find a cosy king size bedroom and a separate room with a double bed. Each room with its own bathroom, each decked out in our finest five star bedlinen. Take your cocoa out into the courtyard for one last snatch of the bells of St Paul's, and then rest your weary head; you'll need your sleep, for London both modern and ancient is waiting right at the front door...

Literature and lore

And when you wake, grab a coffee at one of the many cafes close by, making sure to take in your sharp-suited companions, before wending your way to – well, where first? The ancient back streets around your home are very much worth exploring, your local pub was frequented by Shakespeare, and just around the corner sits the church where the trial of Katherine of Aragon took place when Henry VIII needed to obtain a speedy divorce. Then, you might choose to head across the river to Tate Modern, or up to nearby Covent Garden. Carter Lane sits in one of the best locations we here at onefinestay have ever seen; wherever you need to be, the chances are that a gentle stroll will take you there in just a few minutes.
