Tucked away on a quiet side street, our lovely home is an art and book filled oasis in the heart of historic Dalston.

Our home offers the best of both worlds. Only moments from the excitement of Dalston, here you can escape from the bustle of the city. The peaceful garden is a lovely place to unwind. Inside, the whole house has been carefully designed for sophisticated and relaxed living.

Close to convenient transport links, this is a perfect base from which to explore London.

The space

A charming and much-loved home intended to be a pleasure to stay and live in. On the ground floor there are spacious living and music rooms, complete with a fireplace and a piano; a large fully-equipped kitchen and dining room; and a small toilet at the back of the house. All open out onto our lovely garden with two seating areas, one in the cool shade of a huge fern and the other beneath a wild, rambling rose.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms each with their own character and their own charm. All have real beds with good quality mattresses (the back bedroom has a small-double bed while the other two have double beds), and are extremely comfortable rooms. All the bedrooms have desk-space if anybody needs to work. The bathroom has both a shower and a bathtub.

Guest access

Both the garden and the whole house will be open to guests. There is a garden studio that guests will not have access to.

Interaction with guests

We will be available over phone and email, and will likely be nearby if anything goes wrong. If not, we'll make sure there is someone in the neighbourhood who will be able to help throughout your stay.

Other things to note

There are two pet tortoises living in the garden! They do not need looking after since there's plenty for them to eat in the garden, and are very good at looking after themselves. Feel free to feed them lettuce if you like!

We really enjoyed our stay at Harry's house. The place is really homely and comfortable - it's a perfect place to unwind and is tucked away from the nearby busy streets. Harry had provided us with some essentials like bread and milk which was really helpful and it was really easy to make plans with him to check in to the property. The house is really handily located, so we could walk to Hackney, Broadway Market or the Overground at Dalston Junction in no time and just hopped on the bus to the wedding we were attending in Islington. Thanks again, Harry, for our great London weekend.

Harry is the most accommodating host and his house is the most lovely, inviting home I've stayed in. I stayed for 4 nights with my sister and elderly father, and we all agree it was the perfect spot to come home to after long days around London. It's also a perfect place to say home! We arrived to find fresh bread and milk for tea - which was wonderful after the plane journey. We enjoyed sitting outside in the mornings and around the kitchen table at night with our teas, marveling at all the incredible books in the house (and reading a few, too). The way the house is designed shows how much it is loved and cared for -- you could tell you were staying in a home full of love and happy memories. We also loved the convenience to the places we adore in Hackney - super close to Wilton Way, London Fields and Broadway Market. And it's a such a quiet street, yet 30 seconds from the bus and 5 minutes from the station. It felt like home, and was hard to leave. We will definitely stay here again!

Harry is a great host. It was very easy to communicate with him and he was extremely flexible with me and my sister's demands! :) He also left breakfast and a delicious bread for us. The house is beautiful, very spacious and clean and well situated in Hackney hidden in a quiet road but close to all amenities. I recommend Harry and his house 100% to Airbnb community. Thanks a lot.
