Entire apartment to yourself, a traditional Victorian period "cottage" property in Walthamstow with 1 bedroom. One double bed (kingsize) that sleeps 2 people. Air mattress can be provided for one additional guest. Clean linens and towels provided!
Set in a quiet and safe area of Walthamstow, I have a one bedroom flat available. This area has been my home for the past 14 years, so I have plenty of local knowledge to share! The flat is situated on the ground floor of a Victorian "cottage" maisonette, built in 1896, and is clean, homely and comes with original Victorian features, quirks and imperfections!
TRANSPORT: 5 mins walk to Blackhorse Road Tube station (Victoria line, blue: 20 mins journey into central London) AND 10 mins walk to St James Street Station (London Overground orange line: 15 mins journey to Liverpool Street/Shoreditch neighbourhood).
Your bedroom has a kingsize bed, desk, wardrobe and with drawers. Bed linens and towels are provided for your stay.
The lounge room is bright and faces out onto my garden (which you're welcome to use), with comfy sofas, a dining table, TV, stereo and DVD player.
Perfect for a couple or young family, I also have floor room for one additional guest, by way of an air mattress which can be set up in the lounge, and would be suitable for a child or teenager to use. For toddlers I have a Ready-Bed (see photograph).
The bathroom has a bath tub and shower over the bath. The kitchen has all mod-cons (microwave, oven, hob, toaster, kettle, washing machine, orange juicer).
Outside you will find a small garden with outdoor seating. Wifi internet is available throughout the flat that you can use.
The Stansted Express train runs from Stansted Airport to Tottenham Hale, and then it is only one stop on the blue Victoria line to my neighbourhood stop, Blackhorse Road.
There are excellent transport links nearby, and the London 2012 Olympic Stadium is a direct bus ride away (on the 158 bus), and central London is easily accessed via the Victoria line from the nearby tube stop at Blackhorse Road. East London (Liverpool St., Spitalfields and the super trendy areas of Shoreditch and Hoxton) are all easily reached by taking the overground train from St. James Street station.
Walthamstow Village is a great place to seek out one of the many restaurants or shops, and is just 10 minutes by bus (W12). Closer to home is the amazing Walthamstow Market, which is open daily and sells food, household goods, knik-knaks and many other things besides. Every Saturday you can eat at one of the International Food stalls, or visit on a Sunday for the Organic Farmers market.
Open spaces are plentiful nearby, with the Walthamstow Wetlands, Hackney Marshes, Tottenham Marshes and Lee Valley all great places to explore. There is also a private playing field directly behind the house, so no shortage of greenery!
On-street parking can be arranged for £5 per day (permits needed).
No smoking in the flat please, however, you are more than welcome to use the garden :). Sorry, no pets.
Wifi, all kitchen facilities, washing machine. Sweet little garden with seating. Feel free to peruse my books and records too!
Interaction with guests
Whenever possible I will try to meet guests to hand over keys and answer any questions. If I'm not around then my sister or a friend will meet you instead.
Other things to note
Please, no smoking and no pets.
My place is very clean and has a good positive vibe. I ask that guests respect that when staying here! I have a full House Manual for booked guests which has all the info you need for an enjoyable stay. Whenever possible, I will meet guests when they arrive and answer any questions they may have.
