A double bedded loft room in a newly refurbished house (March 2014), suitable for one person longer term or two people for shorter stays. We are just 4 minutes walk from Finsbury Park station, so easy access to overground and the Victoria and Piccadilly line. Just 10 mins to the west end and 20 minutes to the Olympic Stadium.
We are a friendly two person, 1 cat, professional household. I am in one room and Laura is in the other. The third room is the one we want to share with you. We both work: I am a management consultant and Laura is a social entrepreneur. We are a mature household so this is a place where you can get peace and quiet at the end of a busy day in London.
We are close to supermarkets and shops and there are great pubs and places to eat on Stroud Green Road. We are also a short bus ride away from Crouch End, Camden, Holloway and Archway.
We have all travelled extensively and know London well, so we can advise on the best places to go, how to get cheap tickets and how to get there. We will be really pleased if we can make your stay even better.
Smoking is allowed outside.
From the airport the best, most direct routes to the house are:
1. Piccadilly Line Tube from Heathrow to Finsbury (1hr 15 mins direct)
1. Gatwick Express to Victoria; Victoria tube to Finsbury Park;
1. Stansted Express to Tottenham Hale; Victoria line to Finsbury Park (2 stops);
To Kings Cross then two stops on the Victoria line
To travel into Central London:
- Finsbury Park overland rail takes you to Old Street and Moorgate in 15 mins.
- Piccadilly and Victoria tube lines at Finsbury Park, and both lines run directly to the heart of London centre
The road we are in is a cul-de-sac of just fourteen houses. Its very close to Stroud Green Road where there are many cafes, restaurants, shops and services, most of which are independent. Finsbury Park open space is a short walk away and we are brilliantly connected for public transport: mainline train (just one hour to Cambridge), tube stations (10-15 minutes to the west end and many buses. Its an ideal London location.

Laura is very responsive and replies fast to any requests. As my flight got delayed for hours I had to change plans and sleep somewhere else very close to the airport. However Laura seemed a pretty nice host.
Last stay at Laura's. Sorry to leave. Just lovely.
Another lovely stay with Laura.
Another lovely stay at Laura's. Great location, lovely house and lovely people.
Everything from the bedroom to the location of Laura's Home was perfect. Laura is a great host who takes care of her guests.
Her home is really close to the tube, in 15mn you are in the heart of London ! Just perfect.
We will come back to Laura's home, no doubt !
Gorgeous house, lovely people and perfect location.
Room lovely and convenient for tube. I only met Laura briefly but she was very pleasant and welcoming.
This house was a great place to stay -- really comfortable, and in a convenient location. Laura was so welcoming and friendly as a host, making sure we had everything we needed and offering tea as soon as we walked in the door. We really appreciated all the little things she had done, like putting a hairdryer and towels in our room. Would be very glad to stay there again.
We had a great stay with Laura, Tim, Giano and Molly. The house is very welcoming and friendly and everyone was very hospitable and helpful with great local knowledge and advice. I would highly recommend staying there, it is less than 10 minutes to the tube and many buses. Our hosts were super relaxed and we felt like members of the household immediately. It is a fantastic location with many great restaurants and cafes close by.
Really great location and for the price, you can't beat it. My flight was delayed by a couple of hours and Laura was very accommodative. Room is quiet and a very good size for 1-2 people, especially for central London.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
