This is a beautiful calm spacious double bedroom in a fresh homely peaceful apartment - a nourishing sanctuary and well located on the borders of much desired Stoke Newington, and offers a super comfortable stay in colourful London. The main bedroom available currently is the larger beautiful calming one marked "Bedroom 3" in the photos.
This is a beautiful spacious peaceful homely flat - a nourishing eco minded sanctuary with organic healthy food (where poss) and with an option of a cooked macrobiotic breakfast (extra, enquire within).
There are three bright double bedrooms, a beautiful light nicely decorated living room / diner, good sized kitchen, nice bathroom and couple of lovely balconies. All well decorated and well looked after and maintained ready for your stay.
The bedroom is a bright double that feels very peaceful and calm and spacious. There are wardrobes and drawers - plenty of storage. Really comfortable good quality orthopaedic mattress for sleeping on. And blackout blinds plus curtains.
The whole apartment is quiet and sunny and often described as "homely" and "a real sanctuary" by visitors.
The flat's communal space is airy and peaceful. The Kitchen is a good size with ample storage and nice fittings for foodies (massive Smeg fridge and 5 ring Smeg gas cooker). There is a lovely vista of the allotments right from the kitchen sink.
The living room is fresh beautiful and quirky. It's a great place to come home to and relax in.
The bathroom has an actual bath (not just shower!) that gives great hot showers and baths. There is a window keeping it fresh and an awesome dimmer switch allowing for romantically lit bathroom visits(!!) - actually really useful in the middle of the night not to have to use bright lights and maintain sleepiness :)
There is a big balcony out the front, great for sunsets and sunrises and has the entrance access to the flat. Both good for meal times, both under cover.
There is also a beautiful communal Wellbeing Garden right outside our building on the doorstep where we have communal gatherings as well as being able to chill with a picnic and a book. On it, there is a labyrinth, which is great to walk slowly and mindfully allowing your mind to unwind (not a maze(!), a labyrinth is for wellbeing and has just one path..), communal seating, eating and planting areas (with free herbs and edible flowers) as well as space for bbq's and meditating/ yoga / tai chi etc.
We also have a separate Allotment Garden for growing our own organic veg just outside, with a really friendly community. Over winter there are not tonnes of veg but some! If you are interested and want info on this I can give you details and access :)
There is also an outside gym and a basketball court here available to use too :)
The apartment is on the borders of Stoke Newington and Stamford Hill in N16 postcode, and is about 4 mins walk from Stoke Newington (Stokey) station. There are tonnes of lovely cafes, arty stuff especially on Church Street, and more dotted along whole road to Dalston where you will also find more bars and venue and trendy nightlife and cute independent cinema etc. Stokey is home to the only fully organic London market on a Saturday Morning, which has many a super delicious treat and a great community. There is a lovely community across this area (Stamford Hill / Stoke Newington) and it feels very safe.
There is access to recycling and composting in the flat and block and I'm a big fan of using eco-type products and refills where possible (an awesome shop called Food For All nearby offers cheap refills of great eco cleaning products etc).
If this home feels like a good fit for you, I'd love to hear from you. The room is available from Mid/late October to early December - (and then the whole flat is available, so the room could be rented beyond this, enquire within) and is fully furnished.
If you're interested, I would love to hear from you. I am open to all enquiries and requests and may have some flexibility with dates and pricing - especially with longer term visitors.
Thanks for reading!
You will have access to a beautiful double bedroom with plenty of storage (depending on how many are required / requested), living room, balcony, hallway, kitchen and bathroom, as well as the communal Peace & Wellbeing Garden, outside gym and basketball court (all for the community) just outside.

I will be available to offer help throughout your stay - I also live in the flat :)
Breakfast is not typically included, although can be negotiated, so message me if interested. I do have organic porridge oats and rice milk aplenty and tonnes of tea you can help yourself to! And I can cook a healthy and delicious macrobiotic brekkie if that takes your fancy (extra - just enquire).
There is another tenant who lives in the flat - another guy who works full time. He is a professional and is a very considerate housemate.
I teach the Alexander Technique and have the odd client/student I teach from home in the living room. This is not more than a few hours a week at present and I will always give you notice, and would request mindfulness (sound wise) at that time if you are in the flat and the living room would be for that time be in use. This is limited and really unlikely to affect you as you will be probably adventuring in London! If you are in, I will be equally mindful and respectful of your peace and quiet :)
Thanks for reading and visiting my listing! Please see my other listing too for the other bedroom also occassionally available for other dates when this one is not available! :)
This is a peaceful friendly house and is very much for people interested in living and maintaining that environment. It's more of a retreat than a party house.
I am a therapist and sometimes see clients in the shared space during normal working hours. So this listing is best suited for you if you plan mostly to be out between the hours of 9-5/6. If you are needing to be sometimes,that may be workable, we will need to be openly communicative about that (please tell me in advance!). If in, be aware the shared space living room will be unavailable during sessions and some other times, and respectful and mindful peace and quiet will be required at those times.
It's also a home where eco considerations are valued - recycling, composting, using fabric bags (i have plenty to lend!). I’d appreciate your honouring if these guidelines during your stay (& beyond! ;D).
No smoking, no parties. Strictly quiet guests looking to have a nice stay in a friendly apartment in London.
Hello :) My name is Sarah and I teach the Alexander Technique (a kind of Embodied Mindfulness learning a new way moving and thinking with greater ease and freedom and lightness) and am also a documentary filmmaker - making little films about interesting people, communities and wellbeing stuff.
I am passionate also about being in touch with nature and enjoy the allotments and the Peace & Wellbeing garden on my doorstep that i helped to create, and the community that has grown around it.
I am into meditation, my own kinda grounded spirituality, and being eco (recycling, composting, using eco products) and mindful and think all these things help to create the feeling of a sanctuary in my home that feels super nourishing, and I like to be able to offer this nurturing space to other people too, and look forward to supporting you in creating a comfortable stay in London :)
If you have any questions whatsoever please don't hesitate to ask away - I welcome all enquiries. Happy hunting!
