We are delighted to open up our home for guests from around the world! This lovely 2 bed flat used to be our home in London. But now we are way and we are happy to share our home with you.
The flat is only a 4 minute walk from Camden Town station and from there you can get to Central London in 10-15 minutes. Camden itself is an iconic area and gets more than its fair share of tourists and music lovers. That said, our street itself is quiet and residential and is typical of London with its terraced homes.
Our flat has a private entrance and is located on what is know as lower ground floor. Its not exactly basement as there is a lot of light coming through the patio area as you can see in the pictures. The flat has a spacious living and dining area with a large Samsung TV. We have freeview channels and an entire DVD library which any film lover will enjoy.
The kitchen is very modern and is fully equipped with everything you need to make a quick meal. Not that you would want to eat at home with so many amazing places close by. The kitchen comes with a toaster, kettle, oven and blender. Plenty of pans and pots are provided.
Coming to the sleeping arrangements. The master bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has a bed that pulls out into a double bed. The living room sofa opens into a sofabed that is comfortable for 2 small children or 1 adult.
Our home also comes with a little private patio where you can enjoy a drink or two in the evenings in the summer. It is quite lovely to be able to do that in Central London.
Other practical items that we provide include washer, dryer, iron and ironing board. In the bathroom, you will find fluffy white towels, shampoo and shower gel and a hair dryer.
Baby cot and high chair can be provided upon request.
The entire apartment is available to our guests.
Interaction with guests
My friends at Hostmaker will look after you as I am out of the country.
Camden has fast become one of London's trendiest and popular areas. It used to be an area which attracted old school rockers, but now there are so many more things to see and do here. It is a busy and bustling central London borough which is famed for it's international food market and artisan stalls at the Camden lock. Many independent retailers also choose this area to promote and sell their products. When you get here you will realise that this area is so popular with locals and tourists alike for good reason!
Shoppers should rejoice!!! Camden will be the perfect place for you. Make sure you spend a few hours exploring the extensive Camden markets and the amazing conversion The Stables. You can find great deals here and all manner of things to buy.
If you fancy experiencing a typical British pub then you are in luck as thereare loads of great pubs in Camden. Chill at the Hawley Arms or The Lock Tavern, rock with the rockabillies at The Elephant's Head, kick on until way past your bedtime at The Good Mixer, hobnob with goths, memos and metalheads at The Devonshire Arms or drink a toast in the Spread Eagle just off Parkway.
A visit to this area is not complete without spending some time along Regent's Canal, which runs through the heart of Camden and the markets. From the picturesque Camden Lock you can take a boat tour to Little Venice (and back, naturally).
The house is only a 5 minute walk from Camden Town tube station. This station is serviced by the Northern line which will take you directly to Kings Cross station (great if you are travelling by train!), and other sights in London such as Leicester Square, the Houses of Parliament, and Waterloo station.
There are also plenty of buses in the area, which are a great way of travelling if you like to have a peek at your surroundings as you travel.
A great local tip is to download the Citymapper app. This free app will plan your journey for you efficiently and quickly. It gives you a variety of different transport options such as bike, rail, tube and Uber taxi. It will also take you step by step through your journey as you travel and notify you when you are nearing your destination.
Other things to note
To enter the flat, you will need to negotiate a few stairs going downwards. Not appropriate for those with mobility issues.
