Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This space is a well kept secret,
A huge and lovingly hand crafted boutique apartment in the Borough, London Bridge A true hideaway in a private location in central London in the shadow of the shard.i can guarantee this is unlike anything you will have experienced before
London Bridge stations a 3min walk
Borough market food, the river, the shard, the great history!
This undiscovered space utterly satisfies the imaginative who want to privacy, security, comfort, peace and quiet.

The space
The apartment is one huge high ceilinged room
- a rich playground of curious antique objects and rich textures with big studio windows creating a haven of light and warmth.
Things in the space are not what they seem - a chest of drawers becomes a staircase to a forgotten cupboard. A floor to ceiling mirror is the door to a polished concrete and plaster bathroom. A collection of cupboards and tables conceals an extraordinary Parisian kitchen. Please note we do not have a microwave as we believe this method of cooking reduces the nutritious value of the food.
The wonderful freestanding copper bath is next to the King size bed
as well as a separate modernist shower room.

The space challenges preconceptions of what is possible. It is a fantastical space like no other in the heart of old London.

i do offer a bespoke serviced stay- from shopping to laundry and hairdressing to accupuncture and ancient chinese meridian massage
Rest is at its heart.

As locals of the area we are enthusiastic about what The Borough has to offer and want to share with you our favourite places to shop, eat and spend our time.
A locals eye view can be booked through us at any time at a convenient to you and your trip.
Let us know what your interested in and we will tailor the tour for you.

Guest access
This is a fully self contained and private space accessed through the front lobby of an old school building.

Guests have their own keys.
We ask guests do respect the privacy of the neighbors,
as theirs will also be respected.

Other things to note
we are but a 5 min walk to London Bridge or Waterloo mainline stations.
Situated away from the London traffic, this is a quiet street within 4.7 hectres of conservation area yet so very well connected.

we are NOT NEXT to or ON TOP of the railway line, as the map flag appears to show but a full street away from the slow approach to London Bridge.

If there is anything you need during your stay please let me know, i am usually ready for anything and am able to arrange many other services for you - what ever that may be.

If for any reason there is a need for me to come to the property between 10pm-8am there will be a call out charge for out of hours attendance.
This will be the return cost of the black cab to the property.
Any breakages will be charged for in full.
This is a non-smoking building.
Also no candles are permitted.

You will be
3 mins walk to Borough Market (bars, restaurants, riverside walks, cobbled streets and old warehouses)
Early check in arriving on the red eye arrive and and go to Borough Market for a monmouth coffee or Spanish breakfast at Brindisa
5-10 mins walk to The Cut (Old Vic, Young Vic, Waterloo Station and the South Bank). The Anchor and Hope which is a local gastropub on The Cut where the food and atmosphere is out of this world, one of AA Gills top five most memorable dishes and a true British experience and highly recommended if you’re looking for local bar scene.
25 mins walk to Spitalfields Market, Brick Lane and Red Church Street.
10 mins walk to St Paul’s over the wobbly bridge nxt to Tate Modern
25 to Westminster and the Houses of Parliament on the riverside walk
7 mins to Hyde Park by tube from Southwark station
7 mins to Green Park. Wolsey Ritz and Bond st.
40 mins to the centre of the park a lovely walk along the south side of the embankment passing Shaespears' Globe, Tate Modern, The Sea Containers Mondrian, National Theatre, South Bank Festival Hall, The Hayward Gallery crossing over on Hungerford Bridge, crossing Trafalgar square and along the Mall to Buckingham Palace. St James’s Park starts there and connects to Hyde Park at Hyde Park corner.
There's a lot of art going on in surrounding Bankside, Whitechapel, Spitalfields and Bow. There is also a lot of good food of course Borough Market, and loads of new Resturants on Southwark st, Flat Iron Square all along the Southbank walk and Pont de la Tour and St Katherines Dock at Tower Bridge.
I am a huge fan of 40 Matlby st for creative tasty modern food or the Anchor and Hope on The Cut, for traditional hearty English food lunchtimes the superb and specialised italians O'ver or Padella at the Borough Market and El Vergal Argentinian and organic on Southwark Bridge Road.

You rarely hear a sound from neighbours and at weekends the area is eerily quiet. A perfect hideout in town. Being so close to the river, the South Bank and up to London Bridge and up to under the Shard is quite magical in any weather. Early fog and late balmy evenings and you can be one minute in a crowd and then quite alone
Accommodation:
The space is really best suited for 1 or 2 people.
And is not suitable for children or pets.

Hi! Welcome to London. I am a photographer/producer and guardian of both a wonderful old school building as well as the Chairmakers House . I am not a management company and I provide a more personable service tailored for each guest. Creativity is something to be practised every day as part of life - not just in the media you choose to work with. This is the approach I take with these apartments. Borough is an amazing neighborhood - a still rare and unknown part of London that oozes with history and vibrancy. If you need top tips on where to go, what to do or where to eat then I have the best local knowledge for you. I came here eleven years ago and I haven’t left. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my knowledge of this magical corner of old London town.
