The Space

Our Garden studio is a beautifully converted former garage/coachouse. We used to live in the house next door, but have now rented it out for a minimum of one year while we TRAVEL!!
Our friend Shona, who lives 10 minutes walk away is managing the property for us while we're away, but I'll still be your first point of contact via email.
We stay in the studio ourselves when we're in London.

The neighbourhood is quiet and safe, with EXCELLENT TRANSPORTATION to the centre......
10-15 minutes walk from Clapham North anad Brixton tube stations. Max 15-20 minutes away from any site in the centre.

Brixton centre has a very positive vibe and the relatively recent regeneration of Brixton village has brought the area on the the London FOODIE map...MORLEYS department store has pretty much everything, including a Top Shop outlet and a MAC counter. Clothes shops include very good value H and M, New Look and TK Max.

The Brixton Lido in Brockwell Park has a super Gym and an outdoor pool.

The total space of this property is approx 16 square meters. Tall ceilinged, but the sleeping platform is only 1.2 metres high so its a bit of a struggle for "oldies" I've been told.

There is a tiny bit of outside/ courtyard space where smoking is allowed.

The Wet room (bathroom) is spacious and has a large Powershower and is tiled in black slate. (You will find little extras such as cotton pads, earbuds, deodorant, shower gel).

There's a hair dryer and Washer Drier machine

The sleeping platform has a double mattress fitted with luxurious Egyptian cotton linen, duvet and comfortable pillows.
We supply you with fluffy white towels.

There is a TV /radio and Wi-Fi connection is good

Breakfast isn't included but the cooking facilities are excellent with an electric hob, oven and fridge. Ideal for preparing your packed lunch for the day or a cosy dinner at home. Sainsbury's supermarket at the end of the road has everything you need and there are plenty of take aways in the area too if you don't feel like cooking.
The cupboards are full of oils, herbs and spices, tea, coffee, sugar and you'll find mineral water and a few english items in the fridge such as mustard, jam etc.

We're about 10 mins walk from either Clapham OR Brixton and in a nice quiet street so you'll be able to enjoy a lie in if you've had a late night.

  • The neighborhood was very pretty and the apartment was very comfortable. We could walk (~20 minutes) to the Underground and accessed everything in the city from there. There was a grocery store just a few minutes away that had everything we needed. We enjoyed our stay very much and the apartment was very comfortable.

  • Elizabeth and her husband are awesome, accommodating hosts. The place is clean and with all the amenities we needed (and a great shower room) located in a quiet neighborhood with easy tube access. Thanks!

  • Staying here was an absolute joy! I had the most wonderful time! The place was gorgeous and just what I needed. It's a close walk to all transport (buses and tube station). It was a home away from home. Elizabeth was more than accommodating and I hope to stay there again someday. It was absolutely lovely. :)

  • This flat is really sweet - compact but for two of us it was very nice for a long weekend. The area is lovely, close to Brixton high street, shops and the Ritzy cinema. The shower was especially great. Nice and light, with everything in place for our arrival, including some food which was great.

  • Sweet apartment but more compact than I imagined. Calm neighborhood.
    Be aware that it is easy to access the center of London but I felt it was more 35 minutes than 20.
    The bedding was comfy and the kitchen had all what is required. The bathroom/toilet was a bit unpractical as you had to sweep the water out after having taken a shower to make the bathroom accessible again.
    We did not see Elisabeth but Shona was very nice to us.
    For the price it is really a nice place to stay I would clearly recommend it.

  • Accueil sympathique. Endroit bien situé, tranquille. Studio confortable et bien équipé La salle de bains cependant n'est pas idéale ( système de douche qui arrose tout le sol !
    Peut-être faudrait-il aussi une petite table et 2 tabourets pour prendre le petit déjeuner.
    Mais globalement c'est à recommander chaudement.

  • Our stay here in London was just lovely. Our host was very flexible and accommodating with our ever changing travel plans. Very much appreciated!
    The studio was very cool. I loved the loft bed :)
    It took a couple of showers to get used to the bathroom set up. The shower is not separate from the rest of the bathroom. However, the water pressure was great.
    The stove and washing machine were a little challenging for us, but we eventually figured them out. I loved the proximity to grocers, so we could have some affordable nights in.
    All in all, a great place to stay in London!

  • The flat is perfectly located to Brixton and the Victoria line into Central London. Loads of restaurants to try in Brixton and Brixton Village (market). Also close to Abbeville Rd in Clapham where there are more restaurants to try. The flat was very clean and perfectly adequate for 3. Our host was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Would highly recommend staying here.

    We were looking for a place to stay whilst in between flats. Rather than stay at a hotel we decided to try airbnb. We weren't disappointed. Was great to be able to cook meals and wash our clothes - much better than a hotel room!

  • Excellent communication from Lizzy and Shona. Great spot to drink in London living with superb transport links into and around town. Highly recommended for a cosy and trouble free stay. Thank you!
