About This Listing
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.
Guests have the use of two IKEA foam fold-out sofa beds, LCD TV, DVD player and dining table with four chairs.
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.
Interaction with Guests
We allow guests to check themselves in using an easy keysafe and we are available throughout the booking in case of any problems or questions!
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!!
We hebben Debbie niet ontmoet, maar ze is heel helder in haar communicatie en continu bereikbaar voor vragen. Het appartement is in een rustige buurt met iets verderop goede busverbindingen naar Kings Cross (niet overbodig, de weg naar het appartement loopt omhoog en met koffers/tassen is het best een eindje lopen). Het appartement was zoals op de foto's en schoon. Er ligt een map met heldere instructies voor apparaten, wifi, etc. en allerlei tips voor wandelingen, restaurants, etc. Helaas niet genoeg tijd gehad om de buurt verder te verkennen, deze zag er best gezellig uit. Bankjes en bed zijn basic, maar voldeden prima. Er staat een klein TV-tje, die we niet gebruikt hebben. Keuken is behoorlijk nieuw, zoals op de foto, met een goede nette oven voor de warme broodjes in de ochtend :-)
This is probably the prettiest AirBNB we've stayed in! Love the wall art, and appreciated the well-stock kitchen, fast wifi and hot water. Self-check in was easy and the apartment has a nice location. Only complain was that the bed is rather hard!
It was really cozy and clean flat to stay during trip and the location was really good.
Die Wohnung war für unsere Ansprüche genau richtig. Wir wollten die Stadt sehen uns gelegentlich abends selbst etwas kochen, um Kosten zu sparen. Die Straße direkt vor dem Schlafzimmerfenster hat am ersten Abend noch gestört. An den nächsten Abenden war es aber ruhiger und wir konnte hervorragend schlafen. Etwas verwirrend waren die Angaben zum Check-In und Check-Out, da Airbnb eine Mail mit "jederzeit möglich" schickte. Fragt am besten Debbie vorher genau, wann ihr wieder raus sein müsst, dann gibt es keine Missverständnisse.
Insgesamt ein schönes erstes Airbnb-Erlebnis für uns. Danke, Debbie!
Debbie was very well organized and friendly and the location is perfect for staying a bit in London and around. The apartment is quite ok but the furniture is horrible and everything is a bit damaged- I think Debbie uses the apartment just for Airbnb and bought the cheapest things to furnish it. If you want to have a nice atmosphere don't go there!!!
I'm not really sure how to respond to this review expect that is seems rather unfair and unexpected because you said nothing to us during your stay. The furniture is from IKEA, the kitchen is only 3 years old, the mattress is a year old, the dining table is 6 month old and we have decorated it with interesting prints from a US website. The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos. I'm not sure what you mean by everything is horrid and damaged.
Everything was as I expected. The neighborhood around Angel is very nice and the flat was perfectly functional, which is all I wanted. I was able to cook an elaborate meal in the kitchen! I didn't deal with Debbie much, but when I had one minor issue with electricity, she responded fairly quickly.
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.

About the Host, Debbie
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!
