About Nicholas Kynaston
Hello, my name's Nicholas, I love to travel (who doesn't?) and I am lucky enough to make my living out of it – by being a travel editor and writer and renting out two holiday apartments in the house I share with my Civil Partner Ben and our dog Barney. I love gardening too and if you stay you'll probably see me weeding or maybe tending the chickens who live in an 'eglu' at the bottom of the garden. I love London, so if you've got a question about the capital, don't hesitate to ask. I love foreign langages too, and can speak good Spanish, OK German (and partner Ben is Austrian, so we have that covered) and a bit of French.
Nicholas Kynaston purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Nicholas Kynaston chose Larkhall
The moment we saw the house, we fell in love with it. It is one of the oldest in area, having been built in 1790 as the vicarage for the nearby church of Saint Andrews. Stockwell is central but not touristy and it takes around 8 minutes on the tube to get to the main tourist sites. It's a multicultural neighbourhood that we are proud to live in. The trendy area of Brixton is just a five minute walk away as is the district of Clapham, a gourmet's paradise with over 20 restaurants lining the High Street.
What makes this Apartment unique
If you are looking for a property that is cosy but stylish and want a 30 metre (100 ft) sub-tropcical garden with palm tees and bamboos to rest in after a hard day's sightseeing in London then this is the place for you. You'll get to meet our chickens - we'll be able to give you some of their unique blue shelled eggs for breakfast -our 5 rescue turtles, fish in our pond gardens ...

Excellent stay. Wonderful property.
Thank you for a great stay. Very helpful access instructions - being able to drop bags off early was tremendous. Sitting out in your wonderful garden enjoying the super hot weekend weather was the icing on the cake. We had a great wedding weekend - made easy by the location of your lovely apartment. Thank you very much Richard Bridget & Family
Gem of a place!
My mother, sister, daughter and I all spent a lovely week in this garden flat. It was exactly as advertised. Super comfortable, roomy enough for all of us, and with access to their gorgeous garden! I especially love that the flat is not some impersonal space, furnished directly from Ikea. It felt much more like a private residence. The access to the tube was excellent, and the neighborhood was pleasant. It was lovely being out of the tourist crush. Our hosts were super helpful and their dog, Bruno, is a sweetheart...
It requires a bit of TLC.
Location is perfect for a visit to London town. Transportation can not be bettered. Bus or Tube within a 5 mins walk. Garden is exceptional, perhaps needs a little help to sort the ever growing plants. Beds are very comfortable, kitchen neat and tidy all you need, lounge big enough and again neat and comfortable. Bathroom needs action and refurbishment. Shop across the road for all immediate needs.
First class apartment
Very nice people lovely apartment and garden will go back 100% and very close to the city centre with great tube and bus links
Nice flat with gorgeous garden!
Location is away from many of the tourist attractions, but close enough to the Tube to make it easy to get around. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Apartment was clean and garden area is beautiful!
Comfortable and homely.
Our family of 5 had a lovely stay. Ben and Nik made us very welcome and were helpful and responsive hosts. It is out of the hustle and bustle of the city but close enough for exploring all the sights. It was nice to look out from the bedroom over the lovely green garden. Thanks for a home away from home holiday in London!
We are located in Stockwell, an up-and-coming area of London and to reach the West End and City of London, takes just 10 minutes from our local tube (metro) station. We are opposite a medium sized supermarket and have great local pubs as well as an organic bakery and wine shop in our street..
