The flat is located in a great neighbourhood - a desirable area of south London, Clapham. Just a 10 minute tube ride from London's famous Oxford Street (for shopping), the West End, Leicester square, and all of London's most famous attractions.
The flat is only a short distance (3 mins walk) from Clapham High street - which has an excellent array of shops, bars and restaurants. The famous Clapham Common is just the other on the high street if you fancy some gorgeous open green space and a place to run, walk or have an english picnic (strawberries and cream and lot of Pimms, if you are wondering!)
We are ideally located by 3 tube stations, (Clapham North, Stockwell and Brixton) the closest of which is within a 3 minute walk - making it super quick to get to where you need to go.
Clapham Junction train station is also very close with super fast links to Gatwick & Heathrow airport and the beach (Brighton).
The flat has 1 large bedroom, open plan living and kitchen, and a large bathroom.
You can rent the whole flat which can sleep up to 4 x people - 2 x people in the bed, and 2 x people on the blow up mattress (inflates in 60 secs and is very comfy!) - both very comfortable!
Alternatively, you can rent the flat for just 1-2 people and enjoy the extra space.

Our house rules are really simple.
Treat the flat like you would your own home. :-)
When you arrive, we provide detailed instructions for how to operate all our stuff - TV, Washing Machine, Wi-Fi, etc. It's all free to use apart from the phone which is only for emergencies.
We provide a basic welcome food pack in the kitchen for when you arrive - ham, eggs, bread, etc. This is our gift to you. We know how stressful it can be getting out to the shops as soon as you arrive. You can also cook up a storm using our spices, herbs and oil. The only thing we ask is that if you use any basics from our store cupboard (pasta, rice, etc) then you replace them before leaving.
That's it. Look forward to meeting you!

Rachael was a fantastic host! She responded to my request and all my messages very quickly, and gave me a wonderful email thoroughly describing how to get the keys and arrive at the apartment. The home is ADORABLE and so cozy- AND perfectly placed near Clapham Common. I HIGHLY recommend Rachael's place!
A beautiful, well positioned and comfortable flat. Furnished to a good standard and really nice bedroom.
Well equipped kitchen.
Easy check-in and -out.
I'm told that the inflatable mattress was quite comfortable.
Good communication from the owners and couldn't have asked for anything more for the price.
We stayed at Rachael's flat for 7 nights and it was absolutely fabulous! We had a few communication issues when we first arrived but Rachael was great about it and the stay was very relaxing. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.
The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the plumbing in the bathroom has seen better days and we had a blocked basin for the last few nights.
Aside from that it was a great place to stay very close to everything!
Rachael and co. were great hosts. They met me at the apartment as soon as I arrived in the city, handed me the keys, gave me the rundown, and answered all of my questions. They were very accommodating with my arrival time as I fought being bumped from a flight, a missed flight, and then delayed flight in order to be in London. The apartment was super comfortable, clean, VERY nice, and in a great location where I felt very safe coming in early in the morning by myself. I would recommend Rachael and this apartment to anyone.
I have just returned from my stay at 15 Tregothnan road and i absolutely loved it! It was indeed a home away from home. The hosts Rachael and Paul were super nice and extremely accomodating. They left everything at at our fingertips so there was nothingwe would have wanted or needed. They were always available by phone and helped to make our stay as smooth as possible. The flat was EXACTLY as pictured, a little smaller than i thought it would be but im sure thats the standard british flat size. The location of the flat is superb. Only a 3 min walk to the nearest tube station, which gives access to all of london and only a 20-30min travel to locations in central London. I couldnt be happier with my experience! Many thanks to the hosts :D
