Islington apartment description

Come and stay in this stunning one bedroom Victorian period apartment on a quiet, leafy residential street in beautiful Crouch End. As a base, it could not be more perfect for those wishing to visit the sites of London. The great public transport links will take you to the heart of town in a mere 25 minutes. Yet the peaceful nature of Crouch End will ensure a calm place to retreat back to after a long day of sightseeing. Relax in these beautiful surroundings and experience what it is like to live as a true Londoner!

Homely, clean, spacious and carefully furnished, your stay here will be one of luxury. Warm and welcoming, the flat boasts high ceilings, oak flooring, and an array of classic Victorian architectural details. Large sash windows pour sunlight into the glorious reception room. Enjoy a meal at the dining table in the bay window overlooking the lush greenery of the front garden. Snuggle up on the sofa with a good book, or relax in front of a film from the choice of DVDs. On a cold winter’s night, enjoy the warmth and glow of the open fire.

The apartment is fully equipped with all the conveniences of the modern world! This includes a large digital plasma tv with cable tv service (freeview and catch-up tv), DVD player with selection of films and box-sets, super-speed wifi internet, ipod or iphone docking station to charge your devices or play your favourite tracks, automatic central heating, washing machine and drying rack, steam iron and ironing board, and a fully equipped kitchen, complete with fridge, freezer, gas hob, oven and magimix food processor/juicer. Towels and bed linen are also provided, and for those longer stays, a complementary weekly cleaning service and bed linen change is offered.

The benefit of staying in a London ‘village’ such as Crouch End, is that you have all amenities collected in one area, and right on your doorstep too. A two minute stroll down the road from the apartment is an array of local supermarkets, independent restaurants, traditional Victorian pubs, quirky cafes and boutique shops, should you wish to unwind away from the city centre. The area is not short of green open spaces and woodlands too, and for a bit of culture there are fringe theatres close by, cinemas to catch the latest films, even a Palace (although not of royalty), not to mention one of the most famous comedy stores in the world right at the end of the road.

London is a huge city encompassing far more than just the historic central area of the West End and the City. Away from the heart of the capital many of the old villages engulfed by the tide of urban expansion have survived to form fascinating and attractive suburbs. Crouch End is one of these, and surrounding this is Muswell Hill to the north, Hampstead and Highgate to the west, and Islington to the south. A visit to these local areas can really complement a trip to London.

Arriving from abroad, Heathrow airport is a direct tube ride to Finsbury Park (local underground station), which makes it the easiest and cheapest to get here. Gatwick is also a quick train ride away with links to Kings Cross station, only two tube stops away from the apartment. City Airport and Stansted are also easily accessible.

Being only 20 minutes away from St Pancras International Railway Station, makes getting to and from Europe on the Eurostar super quick and easy. With train tickets from £69 return, there is no excuse not to hop over to Paris for the day!

Well, if any of the above sounds like it could be exactly what you would like to get out of a trip to London, check my online calendar, see if the price is right for your budget, and get in touch. I look forward to having you stay at Haringey Park Apartment....

                            This property was perfect for a visit to London. The neighborhood is awesome- very charming and accessible. There are several stores within a five minute walk. The kitchen is well-stocked with the basics (cutlery, pans, oils, spices) for cooking. With such a great cooking space and access to stores, we were able to really save and eat-in several times. The apartment is well represented with the pictures shared in the profile. The proximity to the bus-line is easily walkable and it is a short bus-ride to the tube. There are many great stores and restaurants in Crouch End. My favorite was at the end of the street the apartment is on and it is called The Blue Legume. Sarah was extremely helpful at every turn and paid close attention to stock the apartment with high-quality items like really nice sheets, good cutlery, thick towels, candles- everything was top-notch. My only complaint and the ONLY reason I did not give the apartment five stars is the noise from the neighbors. For city-dwellers, used to apartment living, this may not be an issue. However, if you are not used to that, it can be a bit off-putting. The downstairs neighbors have a very loud family and the upstairs neighbor is somewhat loud. The noise never kept me from sleeping, but was unpleasant at times when I wanted to unwind, away from the noise of the city. I would not let this deter you (I will certainly be happy to visit the apartment again)... I just wanted to share, so you have all the information- good and bad. I think it is just the nature of apartment being in such an old building- the thin walls probably cannot be avoided. Overall, my stay here was extremely pleasant and I highly recommend this apartment.

                            Well equipped, beautifully decorated and in a lovely area, could not have asked for more. Really enjoyed our stay here, Sarah met us at the flat and was friendly and helpful. Crouch End is a great area to stay in with its many cafes, restaurants, bars and independent shops. Plus its easy to get into central London, either take the 91 bus or catch the tube from Finsbury Park on the Victoria line (its 5 mins to the tube station on the W7 bus from Crouch End or a 20 minute walk down Crouch Hill). The apartment itself has everything you need for a comfortable stay and is beautifully decorated throughout, as you can see from the photos. A lovely cosy place to come back to after a day out in London. Would definitely stay here again.

                            This is a flat you'd be happy to live in permanently, and one that deserves a magazine photo shoot. You need to be careful about the bed - it is so comfortable you might not want to get out of it! The kitchen has everything you need to cook for yourself, and just minutes away in the village you have shops offering all the food ingredients. The bathroom is luxurious and spacious. The village is charming, and there are good restaurant choices at prices you won't find in the city. Buses run often to the nearby tube station, which is on the line that takes you directly to the city center, and also directly to Heathrow. There are also comfortable double-decker buses that run all the way from Crouch End to Trafalgar Square, from which you can have a scenic view of neighbourhoods you'd never see if travelling by tube - and the buses seem to take about the same time to get to Trafalgar Square as the tube. Top marks for this flat, in all categories!

                            We just returned from almost a week in this beautiful apartment in Crouch End. The photos do not do the apartment justice. The apartment exceeded our expectations, lovely furnishings, well-appointed kitchen, large bathroom with shower and large tub. Crouch End is a village, now part of London with great restaurants, many grocery stores, lots of bakeries, coffee shops, easy transit by bus and taxi. We would recommend this apartment without any reservations.

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, tourists without a car, sightseeing.

                            We absolutely loved our stay at this property! It was spacious, with charming decor, and extremely comfortable for us (a couple on business/holiday). Crouch End is one of our favorite London neighborhoods, and the flat is ideally located for all the amenities of the village - with Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, and a great selection of pubs and restaurants just a short walk away. Transport to central London is a breeze, with many buses connecting to the nearby tube (Finsbury Park) for the Piccadilly & Victoria lines. The owner, Sarah, is so lovely and professional, and we appreciated her welcoming us personally to the property. She was so accommodating and responsive to our requests/questions, making the entire experience a pleasure. We're looking forward to returning!

                            There are many reasons to love this beautiful apartment. First, the listing accurately portrays its many features, but it's even lovelier than the pictures can show. You will feel like you are living in an Architectural Digest photo shoot, rich with architectural detail and pitch-perfect style. Everything is sparkling clean and in excellent working order. The owner is helpful, very nice, and easy to contact. Crouch End is a lovely spot - quiet, yet lively and filled with its own charm. Weary from a full day of London fun, we'd ride the tube home, eagerly anticipating our return to our beautiful flat. Public transportation is a breeze. (Americans, you can't imagine how great the bus and tube work well together!) Local pubs are close by. The Blue Legume serves fine breakfasts and lunches, and it's right down the block. After renting many Homeaway apartments in six different countries, I feel confident to say this apartment is in the very top category of excellence. We cannot wait to return!

                            My husband and I loved our time here for our wedding anniversary. The flat is comfortable, cozy, and quiet. It's close enough to central London that going into the city each day isn't a chore, but it is also far enough away that you can rest in peace and quiet in the mornings/evenings and visit local cafes/restaurants/stores and not feel like you're paying tourist prices for lower quality service/products. The owner does a wonderful job making you feel at home and is extremely helpful with recommendations and suggestions on what to see and do to feel more like a local Londoner. Couldn't recommend this place more.

                            Stay in the stunning Victorian spacious apartment due to a visit to the Olympic Games. The apartment is spacious (more space then the pictures would suggest!!). The interior is very comfortable and stylish. There is a warm welcome by the owner and the kitchen is more then complete! Excellent location in lovely Crouch End. Very pleasant surroundings, with nice shops and restaurants just around the corner. Easy to reach from the centre of London. Truly can recommend this place

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, tourists without a car, sightseeing.
