Character-filled, 2 bed Victorian end-terrace cottage with private garden. Instead of being in a flat with people above or below you, why not rent an entire house? Located on a quiet street in a conservation area, just down the road from Camden Market, there are great transport links nearby and is especially convenient for Eurostar. It has kingsize and double beds to easily accommodate 4 people. There is also a comfy double sofa bed that can sleep an additional 2 people. The private back garden has an outdoor sofa, heater and BBQ. It's a perfect place to enjoy morning coffee/tea, evening drinks and/or cook up a gourmet meal after visiting one of the local farmer's markets. Please see below about the cats.
The house is on a quiet tree lined street in a conservation area in the heart of Camden. Camden market literally at the other end of my short road, a 2-3 minute walk away. Primrose hill, London Zoo and Hampstead Heath are all a 5-10 walk away. The rest of London is easily accessible from here as well.
It's got great transports links all times of day, even late at night -- which is quite rare in London. Camden Tube, Chalk Farm Tube and Kentish town west overground stations are within 1-9 min walk. Local buses 24 and 168 can also be used to get in Soho/west end and waterloo/southbank quickly and easy. The 31 bus takes you straight to Notting hill. The 46 bus, which is 1min away, stops directly outside St Pancs for easy Eurostar travel. Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted are very convenient from this central location. (Let me know before your arrival and I will let you know the quickest/easiest/cheapest way to travel to/from your destination.)
I'm happy to have as much or as little interaction as you'd like.
This is my primary residence which I live in when it's not rented out. I have 2 indoor cats that live at the property, and unless I hear from you that you would not like them to stay, I will assume you are fine staying with the cats. (For many people, staying with the cats is a plus!) As this is my house, there are some personal belongings around, which makes the house feel like a home and not a soulless rental property. (I leave most of the closets and shelves totally empty of personal belongings for guest use). The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with all necessary pans, plates, etc. (I have an herb garden out back that you are welcome to help yourself to.)
Please note that in December 2017 built-in bookshelves and cabinets were installed in the living room, the living room painted and carpets throughout the house upgraded and renewed.
Cars: the house is centrally located in Camden and there lots of public transport options, so having a car is neither necessary nor recommended as parking is extremely limited. There are pay and display parking bays directly across the street from the house where you can park for up to 4 hours. There are also various places where you can park, usually for free, for longer within 5 min walk, so contact me if you need more information on parking options.
Please note: the council requires residents to recycle and separate rubbish into 3 bins: Household waste, recycling, and food waste. A previous guest felt this wasn't ideal but unfortunately we have to adhere to local requirements. Most guests understand and don't have a problem with this.
Guests have access to the entire house: 2 double Bedrooms, kitchen/dining room, living room, and bathroom. There's also a sofa bed that sleeps 2.
