The Space

Our lovely Victorian house is in a quiet, residential street just off the main shopping and leisure areas of Dalston and Stoke Newington. It is well served by transport systems (for details see below). We offer a large modern, light and airy oak floored loft bedroom (10 sq. meters) with your own en-suite shower and toilet facilities (4.5 sq. meters )
The room is furnished with a single/double bed, comfortable armchair, large built-in wardrobe and chest of drawers, Freeview TV, DVD, and Wi-Fi internet. You are provided with fine cotton bed linen and towels. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen and our lovely garden. A light breakfast (coffee, tea, juice, bread, a selection of butter/jams/marmalade and cereals/) is included
We have lots of London and local guide books as well as a wealth of knowledge.
We respect the environment, generate solar power and recycle as far as possible.

Check in/check out time is normally from 6pm but sometimes can be flexible, dependent on our schedules (as we both work during the day and may have guests departing the day you arrive). We will try our best to accommodate your arrival time.

Wireless Internet is available for an extra £2 a night or £10 a week.
We will be happy to help you find your way around and can give you tips on where to eat, what to see, how to have a 'local' experience of London and it's many wonderful opportunities.

Guest Access

Guests share the kitchen and garden with us. They have their own private room and bathroom at the top of the house.

Interaction with Guests

We are busy people but are usually around. We like meeting people and are always willing to suggest the more unusual places to visit and things to do; especially locally.

The Neighborhood

The local area is currently one of the most interesting, vibrant parts of London to explore, with the city and the Olympic development nearby.

Dalston is a friendly, trendy and very vibrant local area which has everything you may need. There is a great variety of independent businesses - supermarkets, trendy and unusual restaurants, pubs, cafes, galleries, markets, boutiques, a museum (Geffrye), a theatre (Arcola) and a fantastic independent cinema (Rio) all within walking distance. The area is famed for its Turkish restaurants and nightlife with many bars, clubs and live music venues. We love it, there is always something exciting to do locally

Just a leisurely stroll or bus/train ride away you will find trendy shops and lots of local independent eateries in Stoke Newington Church Street, Broadway Market, Shoreditch, Brick Lane and Islington. Nearby there are lovely green spaces, parks, river and canal with great walks, play areas and sports facilities

  • Sue's apartment was nice and cosy - perfect for the crash pad that I was looking for while exploring Dalston and Shoreditch.
    I could come and go freely, the room was clean, spacious and light. I had a lovely time staying there.
    Unfortunately I didn't have much time to spend with Sue as I was in and out quickly.

My husband and I are outward going, with a wide variety of interests including travel,walking in the countryside, music, art and theatre. I work with young adults in the East End of London and enjoy the diversity of life in our local area. We are both active in volunteering with local community groups and spend much of our time working on an historical narrowboat.
