Interaction with Guests
We like to meet our guests in person, but if we're away we'll arrange collection of the keys from an agreed place.
We are in Stoke Newington (Stokey to the locals), a beautiful part of London famous for its arty residents, Victorian terraces and village-like shopping street. Around us are lovely local pubs and cafes, and we are close to Church Street with its design and interiors shops and only a short walk to trendy Dalston, with its great bars and restaurants.
- Broadway Market (great foody hangout),
- V&A Children's Museum in Bethnal Green,
- Regents Canal for strolls in the sunshine,
- Columbia Road flower market,
- Shoreditch for high-end eating, drinking and shopping, and Geffrye Museum,
- Angel Islington and Upper Street for more great shops and restaurants.
We also have a small but peaceful park on the corner of our block complete with community orchard.
If you like to keep fit we have yoga and pilates studios around the corner and there is also a good public leisure centre/gym close by, and of course the larger Clissold Park which is perfect for jogging.
We are in Zone 2 (out of 6) in the London transport system so relatively central.
We are well connected by London's famous red buses that can take you directly either south into the Shoreditch & the City or south west into Central London and the West End.
We are also a 10-12 minute walk to the London Overground stations of Dalston Kingsland and Dalston Junction which connect you to the tube system (2 stops from Highbury & Islington). An Uber will cost you £12-£17 from the centre (British Museum, Holborn, Oxford Circus, Soho). We are able to sell you parking permits if required (£3.50 per day).
Guests will have access to the entire house including living rooms, dining room, kitchen and garden - except for the top floor, which is only available by advance request.
Interakcija s gostima
Whilst we're away, you'll be welcomed by our lovely half-French flatmate, Alex, who is a wine merchant. Our house manual is full of tips and recommendations to help make your trip great - we'll send that to you in advance.
We have a cat. She is super cute and very friendly but clearly don't stay here if you have any cat related health issues. The cat is fed by an auto-feeder, so you do not need to feed her, but she does like cuddles and head rubs.
There are stairs galore. Being an old house over four floors, sadly we are not disability-friendly.
You will get to live like a real local which will hopefully be a great experience but you will be staying in a working house so whilst your room, sheets etc will be spotless, the rest of the house will be tidy but not hotel polished. We can arrange for our cleaner to visit the house during your stay to keep things nice - on request.
The 4ft-wide double bed on the top floor is slightly smaller than a standard double bed, so best suited for people under 6ft tall.
Loud music is not allowed at any time, but especially between 10pm-10am - it upsets our neighbours.
Guests are not allowed to bring pets (we allowed another dog once and didn't see the cat again for 2 days).
Please do not invite additional guests home or throw any parties. If you do wish to invite any guests then you should check with us in advance.
Smoking is not allowed inside the property but is allowed in the garden if ashtrays are used.
