Islington apartment description
A stylishly designed and well proportioned purpose built apartment set on the ground floor of this private block in fashionable Islington.
For larger groups we have another 2 bedroom apartment in the same building which sleeps 7.
Accommodation comprises a good size living/kitchen/dining room, a double bedroom and a shower room. Maygood House is located in scenic Islington, with its traditional English houses and garden squares (this is where Tony Blair lived before becoming Prime Minister and where the new Mayor of London lives). The apartment is a 10 minute walk from Kings Cross with its 6 underground lines and overland train lines to northern England (direct links to Cambridge) St Pancras International is also 10 minutes walk with the new Eurostar train direct to Paris & Europe and overland UK train lines. It is also a 5 minute walk from Angel underground station and the shops, bars, restaurants and nightclubs of Upper Street. Also nearby are the theatres Sadlers Wells, Almeida and Kings Head pub. Buses nearby leave for Oxford Street, British Museum, Hyde Park and Piccadilly Circus every few minutes.
The apartment is just 5 minutes walk from Hilton Hotel Islington and the Business Design Centre which hosts entertaining trade shows for business and leisure. The apartment is also above the Regents Canal, which is a quiet waterway with birds, ducks, canal boats and fishing - one can enjoy a gentle scenic walk that goes through London Zoo, Regents Park, Camden and little Venice.
Visitors interested in good food will enjoy Islington Farmers Market that now comes every Sunday morning to a location just 5 minutes walk away from the apartment. Also there are some fantastic restaurants on Upper street (the local high street) such as Ottolenghi, Carluccios, Masala Zone, Thai Square and many others.

Beautifully Appointed, Great location!
Beautifully Appointed, Great location!
This is a small, perfectly-arranged apartment in a wonderful location. The apartment is just lovely -- tidy, clean, and in good condition. We especially enjoyed the market on Chapel Market Street and the many nearby pubs. There's a very nice grocery store a few minutes walk away, and a playground opposite the grocery store. You can go anywhere in London by bus from Islington. The renters were well organized, helpful, and professional. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and colleagues.

Why the Owner Chose Islington:
The apartment is in a lovely period building in a fantastic central and quiet location of Central London. The very short walk to Angel and Kings Cross station with Eurostar close by makes travelling around London and to Paris such an easy thing to do. Islington is such a vibrant part of London that you never need to leave! Buses are the most convenient way to travel around the city and leave from the high street every 2-5 minutes.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The period building has typical London character in design and appearance, made of London stock brick and with traditional sliding sash windows. You'll feel like a regular Londoner living in our apartments for a few days. The area has 2 characters, busy London & tranquil Islington at the same time. The building is opposite a small Primary school (4-10 year olds), which is ideal if you forget an alarm clock and need to wake at 9am, when teachers ring the bell for start of class. The apartment is above Regents Canal, and you can access the tranquil scenic canal path to walk, jog or cycle in 5 minutes. It goes via London Zoo, Regents Park Camden Market, Little Venice and Kings Place - a fantastic new cultural centre You can hire a bike for just £1 for the day using the Mayor of Londons new alternative transport. There are 2 bike stations less than 5 minutes walk away, so no risk of not finding a bike when you want one.
