About this listing
One stop from Kings Cross St Pancras, this is a great location to explore London. Very friendly neighbourhood with local restaurants, pubs and shops, plus we are just 20 minutes walk from Camden.
Welcome to the family home of my son and I, a bright first floor flat with high ceilings, in a quiet road with a friendly local community and a small park just opposite. The double bedroom is light and airy at the back of the house. Quiet with a view of gardens and trees out the window, it is a peaceful place to rest up after a day in London. You can use the kitchen and living room.
CLOSE TO ALL OF LONDON
We are a 5 minute walk from the local tube station Caledonian Road (Zone 2) on the Piccadilly line and its fabulous quick and easy access to all of central London.
Covent Garden is 15 minutes away by tube.
Camden 15 minutes by bus.
Oxford Street, Tower of London and The City, all 20 minutes by tube.
You will get to most other places in Central London within 30 minutes.
If you haven't found out about Oyster Travel cards (see 'Transport for London' website) I can advise, as it offers the most economic way of travelling by public transport around London. I have a very good knowledge of London and how to get around, so happy to help you plan your day.

I am a South Londoner by birth and moved to north London about twenty five years ago now. I've lived here for over twenty years with my son Jake and am involved in the local street community. I know London very well and enjoy living in this vibrant city. I work as a graphic designer from home, producing a variety of work for print along with websites. I play tennis and cricket, and go for long country walks at weekends outside of the cricket season. I try to stay fit and healthy and cook using fresh ingredients, but I do enjoy a glass or two some evenings. I come from a large family with many cousins in and around London.
