House, , 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 2)
We are an academic couple who have lived in this house as our family home for many years. Now semi-retired, we are away a lot so offer in our absence, our modest but quite ideal home and garden to discerning couple. We hope you will enjoy the experience of living here as a resident, who know his way around local street markets, theatres, pubs, shops and restaurants. Tourist London is easily accessible, but quite different.
Owner purchased this House in 1962
Why Owner chose London Borough of Islington
Who wouldn't love being in a comfortable house while visiting London instead of staying in a stuffy hotel?! With its homely, airy and safe feeling our house is fantastic. It is located in a really lovely area of London. Though 10 minutes walk to Upper Street; with its restaurants, bars, shops, cinema and theatre, it is a very quiet place.
What makes this House unique
Being in a house with a large garden in London zone 1 is quite unique! The village feel is also different than what most people experience when visiting London.

A true haven - impossible to believe we were in Central London
We had a wonderful stay in February this year. What should have been an incredibly stressful week of college visits, work and family get-togethers turned out to be the most enjoyable experience, thanks to the comfort and ambience of this marvellous house and the unending kindness of its owners. Our party spanned three generations from 12 to 80 years of age and everyone looked forward to returning home in the evening, my mother to sit and read quietly by the fire, the rest of us (not so quietly) to congregate and exchange stories in the huge kitchen/dining room. Even with six in the house, everyone had their own space and favourite sitting area. The immediate surrounding area is a hidden gem. My husband and I lived in London for many years but have never experienced such a village-like atmosphere - complete with local "pub" around the corner. Yet just streets away is High Street Islington with all its restaurants, shops and transport options. Staying in London will never be the same again!
Thank you for such a sparkling yet sincere review. In fact, you were wonderful guests. You seemed to know how to enjoy the house to the hilt and you left it in the state a close friend would. Any time you are in London, please come back!

We stayed in this wonderf...
We stayed in this wonderful house last February. The owners were so helpful prior to our visit. It was convenient to the tube and a delightful neighborhood to walk around. We would definitely consider renting it again.
