Spacious Room in Heart of Dalston

Loft - Private room · shacklewell lane, London, London E82ej, United Kingdom

A lovely spacious room in a loft type flat in lively Dalston. It's really well connected to Central London and the neighbourhood is one of the best in London! We also have a really cute cat!

The Space


We have a lovely double room available in a modern loft-style flat, right in the middle of Dalston, one of the most unique and exciting areas of London

The room is large and full of natural light, with a very comfortable futon bed, a rail and hangers for your clothes, and a large desk if you need to work. We will provide fresh bedsheets and towels for your stay.

The rest of the flat is spacious, with a fully-furnished open plan living room/kitchen, breakfast bar, and a bath and shower. We also have a washing machine, dishwasher, gas cooker, central heating, and very, very fast fibre broadband (with WiFi).

The flat is situated in a fully-converted warehouse building with elevator. The street is quiet and safe, and there is a lovely café across the road, as well as a yoga studio (with drop-in classes), the famous Shacklewell Arms pub, a big park, and some delicious restaurants in the area.

A 5 minute walk will take you to Dalston's high street with all its curious shops, lovely restaurants (best Turkish food in London), and various clubs and bars. From the high street you can take 24-hour buses to Stoke Newington, Shoreditch, Brick Lane, Angel, as well as many other exciting locations. The nearby Overground station, Dalston Kingsland, can take you to Oxford Circus in under 30mins as well as other famous London districts like Camden, Hampstead Heath, and Portobello Road.

We are a young creative couple; Méryl works in Fashion and Eddie works in Television and Music. We have a little cat called Foxy, who is very friendly, clean and entertaining. She's been described by several guests as "the cutest cat in the world", and we're inclined to agree with these wise words!

If you have any questions then drop us a line and say hi, we look forward to meeting you!

  • Thanks Meryl and Eddie for a very pleasant experience. I had a great time staying with them and their lovely cat Foxy. Very relaxed and uncomplicated. The location is just perfect – 10 minutes from Dalston Kingsland, and my hosts were very helpful with all sorts of information and provided me with everything I needed: free WLAN, towels, a map, even a small information sheet. The bed was comfortable and the room nice, clean and cozy. Would definitely recommend.

  • Eddie and Meryl are super chill and helpful and a blast to stay with. The room is cozy, safe and quiet and very near Kingsland Road in Dalston so you will be right around the corner from a ton of bars, restaurants and shopping. It's only a quick ten minute walk to grab a train to anywhere in London.

  • I really enjoyed my stay with the lovely Meryl, Eddie & their adorable kitty Foxy. The room was very large, with ample space for hanging clothes and storing luggage, and I really appreciated having a desk for working. Super comfy futon bed! Large and very clean bathroom with a great shower. Meryl had thoughtfully provided really nice samples of shampoo, shower gel etc. Meryl and Eddie were both so friendly and welcoming.
    Highly recommend and would love to stay there another time!
