A one bedroomed flat in the heart of fashionable Angel Islington and just five minutes walk from bustling Upper Street with its dozens of excellent bars, restaurants, theatres & boutiques. It is just a 10 minute walk to Kings Cross or Angel stations!
PLEASE NOTE: The apartment now has a new 'Silentnight Miracoil' mattress, new espresso machine and has also had its annual repaint/freshen up throughout.
My newly renovated property is a stylish ONE BEDROOM GARDEN FLAT just 5 mins from the tube which sleeps 2-4 people.
This sunny flat, which boasts original wooden floorboards, has been completely refurbished to a high specification and includes all the mod cons you would need for your visit.
The main street, Upper Street, is lined with lovely coffee shops, designer shops, antique and junk shops to rummage in and classic English pubs to sample a pint of traditional ale.
* Just moments from vibrant Angel Islington and Upper Street with loads of great restaurants, stylish bars and famous theatres and live music venues that rival the West End.
* Within walking distance to the West End and Oxford Street.
* Easy stroll to Regents Canal where you can walk east to Victoria Park or west towards Camden town and Camden market.
* Moments from Chapel Market and the weekly farmers food market and the eclectic Camden Passage antiques area.
* Easy bus ride to Spitalfields vintage market and Brick Lane with all its famous curry houses and food stalls.
* Close to trendy Hoxton and lovely Columbia Road Flower market.
Nearest tubes are Angel Islington (zone 1) and Kings Cross tube and Eurostar terminal which are both just 5-10 mins walk away and there are plenty of bus stops literally just outside to travel all over London.
The flat is also a few minutes walk from Caledonian Road and Barnsbury overland station which offers the chance to explore further afield outside London like Richmond and Hampton Court.
Parking is available at an extra cost of £5 per day and there is a London cycle hire bike station just round the corner.
MORE ABOUT THE FLAT....
The flat is on the ground floor of a classic red brick mansion block. The flat is accessed through double doors into the lounge from the garden direct off Barnsbury Road. There is also a front door and small patio area which is accessed from the estate.
This area around the flat is a quiet residential area with tree lined Victorian and Georgian streets and close to Barnard Park. There are some excellent gastro pubs within a few minutes walk and Upper Street is just 5 minutes walk away. You will find everything you need on Upper Street including supermarkets, cinemas, restaurants, bars etc....
The flat has one gorgeous bedroom with comfy double bed, wardrobe, dressing table and big window looking out onto the garden.
The lounge is decorated with some of my favourite art prints and is spacious with plenty of room for you to relax after days of sightseeing!
There are double doors leading onto the garden which overlooks a classic row of London Georgian terraced houses and offers easy access through the gate towards Upper Street.

The newly fitted kitchen comes fully equipped with everything you should need for a comfortable stay.
There are brand new integrated apppliances including a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave and espresso machine.
And if you decide to have a night away from Angel's excellent choice of bars and restaurants, there is a brand new fridge freezer, gas hob and electric oven for you to cook up a storm on!
There is a restfully decorated bathroom with heated towel rail, full size bath and shower overhead.
The flat also comes with free wifi, cable TV, fresh linen, soft towels and a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy when you arrive.
MORE ABOUT THE AREA....
The flat is also moments from Regents Canal and I would highly recommended taking time to stroll 30 mins either upstream to Regents Park and Camden or down river to the beautiful open spaces of Victoria Park and the emerging Olympic Village. There are lots of riverside pubs and cafes to make the walk even more enjoyable!!
I am more than happy to make any recommendations or offer advice for places to eat and drink after getting to know the area really well for years before I moved out a bit further east!
I have also put together a little personal guide listing my top things to do, favourite places to visit and what I think are some of the best places to eat and drink....feel free to ignore and explore yourself or ask for more advice!!
I live only 20 minutes away by bike and work from home so am pretty much on hand should you need any help. I will organise cleaning the flat during longer stays on arrangement with guests and their needs.
I look forward to welcoming you to my home! Please feel free to message with any questions!
Guests have access to anything in the apartment.

I honestly think Islington is one of the best places in
London – we’ve got it all: great bars, top-notch food
and great local shops.
Plus with fabulous parks, and a great cultural vibe thanks to many local theatres, a world-renowned dance venue and fascinating museums, there really is something for everyone!
The area around The Angel, Upper Street and Essex Road is of special interest to visitors it is home to a number of interesting shops selling antiques and collectibles as well as art galleries.
Diners are spoiled for choice in Islington, especially the Upper Street area between Angel and Highbury & Islington tube stations.
A wide variety of cuisine and price ranges are available. Mediterranean food dominates but with options like Indian, Afghan, Italian, French, Thai, and South American there is food for all tastes.
We provide all confirmed guests with a welcome pack of our favourite restaurant, bars and pubs plus things to do etc
Just a 10 minutes walk to either Angel or Kings Cross station. There are also dozens of 24 hour buses running all over the city.
Parking is available - please message me in advance.

Thanks for taking the time to read this!!
Great neighbourhood, very central and easy access to the tube. Debbie was very accessible and quickly answered questions. Great, cosy flat, will stay there again if we are back in London.
Debbie's place was perfect. Excellent location with local amenities very close by. Apt was surprisingly quiet considering it was just in off the road. Appliances, utilities etc very easy to use. Good communications. Thank you.
Well equipped, clean flat in good location. Walking distance to Angel
and Kings Cross stations. Lots of quaint cafes and quirky and vintage shops nearby. The flat was warm and we slept really well as the bed was comfy. Ideal for a short break in London.
We met Debbie on the first day and she was very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed.
Mieszkanie jest dobrze położone, ok 10 minut do metra i dokładnie obok przystanku autobusowego. Droga dojazdu i dojścia dobrze opisana, bardzo obszerne informacje są w folderze. W mieszkaniu było ciepło, ale bardzo złe wrażenie zrobił na nas "ogród"/ wejście do mieszkania. "Ogród" zupełnie nie odpowiada temu co na zdjęciu. Kuchnia dokładnie taka jak na zdjęciu. Pokój dzienny w rzeczywistości wygląda gorzej, sypialnia dokładnie tak samo. Wg mnie nie było dobrze posprzątane, ale główne miejsca wymagające higieny wyczyszczone środkami chemicznymi. Łóżka dodatkowe w salonie niewygodne, materac leży na ziemi i 1/3 "materaca" to deska - ewentualnie nadaje się dla dzieci. Sypialnia z wygodnym łóżkiem dla dwojga.
W łazience nie było światła i Debbie nas przeprosiła, ale miałyśmy z tym problem.
Podsumowując - na jedną krótką noc dałyśmy radę:)
We really enjoyed our stay at Debbie's apartment! She was super helpful and responsive both leading up to and during our stay. The apartment itself is great -- exactly as described. Would definitely recommend staying here!
Unfortunately the experience was not as smooth as I would have liked. Debbie had forgot to top up the gas and we were left without heat and hot water for over day. I had to top up the gas card myself and to this day she has not refunded the fee. She was completely absent throughout our stay.
The flat was itself was clean but was quite small. When you opened the other bed in the living room there was no space to have dinner or to leave the flat.
Overall, it was a disappointing experience.
I'm sorry you had a disappointing experience and I have already apologised for my mistake about the gas meter.
I don't really understand why you say you had no heating or hot water for over a day. As soon as you phoned me about the problem, I immediately explained how to easily fix the problem so you had heating and hot water within 10 minutes of contacting me.
I am also a little upset that you say I was absent throughout your stay. I answered every phonecall straightaway and even stayed chatting with you on the phone while you located the apartment because your brother had not read the detailed directions correctly.
Once again, I apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope you still managed to enjoy your visit to London!

I am a property renovator and design enthusiastic who loves taking unloved homes and making them look and feel beautiful!
I live with my husband Tim in East London and in my free time I like rummaging round markets and junk shops, eating tasty food with my friends and cycling in the sunshine.
We are both huge travel addicts and recently returned from an extended trip around the world where we were lucky enough to visit some amazing places and make some great friends along the way!
Now I am looking forward to meeting more new people and letting them discover what I love about London!
