A brilliantly located apartment with easy access to all the best places in London, be it tourist hot spots, or your taste in entertainment. You'll have the apartment all to yourself, with us as friendly hosts a knock away if you need us.

The Space

Your accommodation at this great basement apartment consists of a spacious living room with kitchenette, a double bedroom and an en-suite wet room.
The living room makes a perfect hang out, with dining table, digital flat screen TV, wifi, DAB radio/ipod dock, and a double sofa bed for any extra guests. Here you can also cook to your hearts content (or prep a cheeky take away from the many delicious local restaurants) in the kitchenette. It includes all the modern conveniences such as kettle, toaster, induction hob, microwave/convection oven, washer/dryer and under counter fridge-freezer - although the local grocery store is just across the road...quite literally!

The Double bedroom with its 'novel' wallpaper has a south-facing window, complete with en-suite wet room. There is a hanging rail and two chests of draws for those of you who have packed too much.

The ceiling height is 6'6"/2.04 metres, so if you are super tall and like a good stretch, admittedly it may not be the place for you!

The apartment was first dreamed up when we bought the Georgian townhouse it sits within. Dating back to 1830 it must have seen many an interesting guest, we look forward to you being the next.

Guest Access

The apartment is all yours with your own front door, no sharing required except for with your own party.
All appliances and tech are there for you to use. Unpack your case, hang up your clothes, fill the draws and make yourself at home.

Interaction with Guests

We live in the main house above the apartment, so if you need anything or any recommendations, we are happy to help. We love guests and look forward to welcoming you to our neighborhood.

The Neighborhood

There’s a lot to do locally with a great selection of authentic cuisine and top class pubs in nearby Camberwell. We can highly recommend The Crooked Well for fantastic food, Silk Road, The Bear for a superb Sunday Roast, and the Stormbird for a plethora of ales to name just a few. Going just minutes on foot the other way you'll find the super cool, super chilled with great coffee and cocktails Cable Bar; Mimi's an Italian deli to die for; and juke box LA dive-bar-esque Brown Derby. How could we almost forget to mention the incredible Bar Lenuccia just meters away!! Best pizzas and pastas in town. ALL freshly made and delicious and a lunchtime deal that's almost unbelievable for London! £5.99 for Pizza/pasta, wine (or soft drink) AND an espresso!...needless to say, we are regulars!!!

Vibrant place to be, Brixton is just a stones throw away, we thoroughly recommend the Ritzy Cinema, and not to be missed Brixton Village, which is best on a Saturday. Back in Oval, Saturday also is the day for our local farmers market where you can indulge in everything from mouth watering chocolate brownies to some unbeatable biltong!

Cricket fans will have an added reason to be in seventh heaven here as Oval is also home to the Kia Oval Cricket Ground and you get from the front door to the game in under ten minutes on foot.

Getting around

At just a stones throw from central London this super cool apartment is a great base for all your London adventures.
Buses at the front door and Oval tube station (Zone 2 - Northern Line) just 8 minutes walk away (in heels) will take you into the heart of the City’s shopping district.
Vauxhall Underground and Overland/'Mainline' train station is a few stops on the bus or a twenty minute walk, once here you can dart right across London or out of town entirely to locations such as the country getaway of Windsor (The Queen's castle is here!)

Kennington tube station (Zone 1 - Northernline) is also 20 minutes walk away, or just one stop on the tube from Oval.

There is free parking on all the surrounding streets, and additionally a 20min loading bay both opposite and at the nearest corner.

Black cabs are easy to hail from the front door, alternatively we're happy to supply you with the numbers to book a mini-cab.

Other Things to Note

Transport to the apartment from all the major airports is easy, especially Heathrow and Gatwick where the express trains are just a bus away which will take you door to door. Full travel instructions are available to you upon booking.

  • We had a wonderful stay in Ben & Susanah's apartment. It was as described, quite large enough for 2 people & would be OK for a third person. It had every convienence necessary including an excellent washing machine & dryer. Transport to the centre of London was right outside the door and a small supermarket right across the road. The great part about this apartment is the hosts Ben & Susannah who are a lovely couple and ready to help with any advise or give directions at any time. They went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable. we would highly recommend them & their apartment

  • The apartment is beautifully decorated and it has everything you need to enjoy your stay; there's a supermarket just in front of the apartment with great bread, good soup and delicious muffins. Also plenty of buses that dat stop in front of the door, one of them can take you close to Regent Street!! And the best of everything was the hospitality of Susannah and her family; they are very friendly and helpful. Thank you for making a big difference with small details like stickers and balloons, Elissa loved them!

  • This is an excellent location and I recommend "Industrial Chic Central Apartment" highly!

    Ben and Susannah are wonderful hosts. It is apparent that they really care about their guests and this shows in absolutely everything they do. We especially appreciated the information prepared for guests, including suggestions and tips on local restaurants and things to do and see. There are many other little "touches" that make the guest really feel at home.

    The apartment is super fun. These accommodations are well-suited for a wide variety of travelers. We (myself and my daughter) found the apartment very comfortable and highly enjoyable. The apartment was spotless and quite convenient. Bus stop right outside front door or a quick walk to underground transportation. Directions to the apartment are completely accurate and we had no difficulty finding it.

    Other reviews have indicated WiFi was a bit spotty however we did not have any problems.

    There is simply nothing negative to say about this location and we felt very lucky to be able to stay here. (website hidden) should be proud to have this location and these hosts as part of their program.

    Thank you so much Ben and Susannah. We hope to stay with you again!

  • My girlfriend and I stayed in the apartment for 5 nights. Fantastic basement apartment which had everything as advertised. Good location on camberwell new road with easy access to bus connections (just outside the door and 5 mins walk around the corner on Brixton road) and tube station (oval, northern line, 10 mins walk).

    Ben & Susannah were very nice hosts, with the complimentary milk, juice and bread on arrival a lovely touch. We would definitely stay here again when in London.

  • Apartamento muy acogedor y bonito, Ben es muy amable y nos recibió muy bien nos mostró el apartamento y nos dió muchos datos útiles, incluso nos había dejado en la nevera algunas cosas para desayunar, un buen detalle, el apartamento está bien situado, justo a la entrada paran varios autobuses, bien comunicado, quizás el único pero es que el wi-fi no iba muy bien, prácticamente no había señal, por lo demás todo perfecto, muy recomendable!

  • Ben and Susannah's apartment was great! Location was awesome (bus right out the door, tube 5 minutes away, and grocery store across the street). The apartment was clean and looked just like in the photos. Ben and Susannah even kind enough to leave us some bread, milk, and wine.

Freelance Actor & Freelance Producer/Director
Hi, we are Ben and Susannah (plus baby River). We are both freelancers working as an actor and TV Producer/Director respectively. In our spare/ 'between contracts' time we love renovating properties and like to think of ourselves as 'lifestyle entrepreneurs' (a phrase coined by good friends of ours - equally media/rennovators/day time coffee meet-uper-ers).
