A quiet, sunny, spacious one-bed in the trendy London Fields area, overlooking a part and just minutes away from Broadway Market, Shoreditch and Dalston!

The Space

A one-bedroom, one-bathroom flat with huge windows overlooking the green of London Fields in E8. It is on the fifth floor in a clean, safe and tranquil estate building with a lift. The living room is large, with Sky TV, a three-seat sofa, chair and four-seat dining table. The kitchen is separate and fully equipped (with a table and two chairs there too). Waking up in this flat you'd have no idea you were in a big city!

The kitchen has a fridge and freezer, a small but very powerful electric oven and stove, a microwave, a washing machine and fire alarm. The water pressure in the bathroom is very strong and hot water is abundant.

It is just a few minutes' walk from the London Fields overground train (from which it takes less than 10 minutes to get to Liverpool Street Station) and from many buses on Mare Street. It is also just a couple minutes' walk from Broadway Market, where there is a lovely food and clothing market on Saturdays; Columbia Road, where there is the flower market every Sunday; and Victoria Park.

Broadway Market has everything you need - restaurants, cafes, pubs, a pharmacy, food shops, and Mare Street has banks, Sainsburys and Tescos, etc. Shoreditch, Old Street and Dalston are also in walking distance or short bus rides away, so there's plenty of nightlife and shopping to be had.

I'll provide clean bedding, towels, shampoo/conditioner/soap, hairdryer, iron and board, drying rack, and leave spare shelves and hanging space in the wardrobe.

  • We really enjoyed staying at Sara's apartment at London Fields. The flat is in excellent condition and has a spacious lounge, large bedroom and a kitchen with everything to meet your needs. It was attractively furnished and decorated and was definitely a home away from home. Sara provided very clear directions to get there from Heathrow which were very helpful. Her transport information in the local area was also useful as were the restaurant and market recommendations. The area is terrific with Broadway market a five minute walk away and the lovely park outside your door. The train is also five minutes walk through the park, so it easy to get to Liverpool station and the tube. We would probably not have visited this area if not for staying there, and it gave us a real sense (email hidden)ly area that many young people are moving to. The coffee shops and pubs are excellent in the area.

  • I'm so pleased with my experience at Sara's flat. It was very cozy and tidy. Wonderful light and view of the park. Sara was a very lovely host and her joyful and caring personality can be felt in the flat. Highly recommended !

  • We had a great time staying at Sara's. Her flat was nice, clean and very quiet. It is also well-located from our point of view : not full of tourists and with a view on the park! Although there is no tube station nearby, this wasn't a problem as a train and an overground line are respectively 5 and 10-15 minutes away from her flat and there are also lots of buses. Finally Sara was very polite and friendly in all her communications and always quick to answer. So in short I highly recommend her flat.

  • We loved this flat in one of the most vibrant areas of east london. The flat was so comfortable, immaculate and quiet - I'd definitely stay here again and recommend Sara's property! We had all the information we needed and Sara was quick to respond to any requests we had, as well as providing detailed transport information for the local area - thank you!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Sara's flat. We were thrilled to discover this quiet and pretty area of London we didn't know well.
    Sara left us a document with practicle informations about the neighbourhood, how to get to the different spots in London with the buses, how the equipment of the flat works... All very clear and easy to understand.
    And the flat was as shown on the pictures, very clean and spacious, perfect for two !
    Just one very little thing, but it is really not a big deal: if ever you are lucky enough to have a good weather while staying in London, as the bed is just next to a window and the blind is not really blocking-out the light, you might wake-up earlier than you'd want, but a simple eye mask should do good.
    In the end, we definitely recommend !

  • Sara was very thoughtful and everything went smoothly. The place was exactly as described; quiet, cozy and clean. It's not the most central location, but it turned out to be a pleasure to be in the London Fields area. I would definitely return.

I'm a journalist living in London, and I bought my flat in 2012. I'm half Italian and half Australian, and spent time living in the US and India. I travel a lot for work and holidays, so always happy to rent the place out when I'm away.
