2 Bed Garden Flat near Tower Bridge

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Cannon Street Rd, London, E1 0BH, United Kingdom
Carolyn

Lovely, excellently-located garden flat close to Tower Bridge (10-15 minute walk) and the Tower of London.

The flat is spread over 2 floors (ground and basement) of a Victorian house. On the ground floor is a fully equipped kitchen and breakfast bar, leading into a living room complete with dining table. The living room leads out to a large whitewashed private garden, with table and chairs and gas barbecue.

Downstairs are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The flat sleeps 4, and there is a single air bed for a 5th person.

TV and cable are provided, as is WiFi. There is a DVD player and TV in the master bedroom. There is a stereo system into which an iPod can be plugged. There is gas central heating and on demand hot water. There is a washer dryer and dishwasher in the kitchen.

Nearest tube station is Tower Hill (District and Circle line) - 10 min walk.

Closer still is Shadwell station (1-2 min walk), which is on both the Docklands Light Railway and the London Overground line, and connects to the tube line at Bank and Tower Hill.

There is also a great bus route to the City and West End, perfect for sightseeing and shopping (No.15 bus). No need for an expensive tourist bus!

The 'olde' world of Wapping is a 10 min walk away, right on the River Thames and home to London's oldest pubs.

Next to Wapping is St. Katherine Docks, a marina next to Tower Bridge. You can take a boat trip from here along the Thames. Spitalfields Market and Shoreditch are 15-20 min walk away (or 2 stops on the train) where you are spoilt for great bars and restaurants.

Whenever possible, either my husband Daniel or myself will be hosting but as we live between New York and London, we may not always be around. If we're not here, my sister and her husband live 5 minutes away and will be on hand to let you in and answer any questions you may have. Equally, I am always contactable by email and phone.

We have many baby-related items which can be provided if requested (travel cot, bedding, toys, bath mat, plastic cups and plates, potty, booster seat etc). Do let us know if you need any of these items.

Your host, Carolyn

  • We loved Carolyn's garden flat in Tower Bridge, it was perfect and in a great location for all the city sights. The printed manual was also really helpful. Would definitely recommend it to friends and would love to stay again if we are back in London any time soon.

  • We are very happy, we all expectations are met. The house is very comfortable and clean and in perfect condition, I recommend it for families.

  • What a wonderful time we had here! Carolyn was a fun, responsive host, and the packet of information she sent in advance was very useful. This flat was a lovely home base for us during our week in London. The weather during our stay was great, so we particularly enjoyed the patio/garden. That was our favorite amenity: the private outdoor space. It was a relaxing, pretty place to begin and end our busy days.

    The flat itself is cozy, attractive, very clean, and well represented by the photos here. Both bedrooms are quite comfortable, the bathroom is nice, and the kitchen well furnished. The neighborhood may look slightly dodgy at first, but it proved to be very quiet, and we never felt uncomfortable during our many walks in the area.

    Thanks to Carolyn's notes and advice, we were able to get our bearings in the neighborhood quickly, and we easily found our way to the nearest DLR and Tube stops. It was great being so close to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London! On Carolyn’s recommendation, we had a fantastic meal at Lahore Kebab House, and the Captain Kidd is a gorgeous riverside place to enjoy a pint (skip the food, though). Other favorite places we found within easy walking distance were The Empress restaurant on Leman street (amazing Indian food!) and The Minories pub, near the Tower Hill station, which we made our “local.” We had the BEST full English breakfast there (highly recommended!), and some excellent cask ales.

    We became very fond of this flat during our stay and would happily return. We recommend it!

  • Myself and my friends had a lovely time here. The area was great and so many little shops and places to visit! Absolutely loved how spacious the flat was and i was happy that we were just left to ourselves with the apartment. Felt like it was our own place. Would definately love to stay again next time i'm in London

  • Carolyn's place was fantastic. The flat was so homey and cozy. The private garden in the back was icing on the cake. Comfortable beds, great location. Absolutely no hesitations recommending it to others. Susana, who let us in, waited for an hour for us because of a delayed flight and she didn't complain at all. Thanks, Carolyn!

  • This is a very attractively furnished and arranged flat, with everything you can think of provided. Very comfortable and well appointed. Great little garden. Carolyn has prepared a super book of information and instructions. This is also a good location. It's quick to get into more central parts of the city, and its proximity to the river with all the new development (and old history), and to other vibrant parts of the east end, make it a good choice for an un-touristy experience. Communication back and forth was a breeze - Carolyn was quite patient with our (sometimes very basic!) questions and keen to make sure we were happily settled and that all went smoothly.

  • Our host (sister of Carolyn) was amazing. Very accommodating and extremely helpful. We were met by the person that cleans the property which was a nice touch.
    The location was central and handy to the DLR.
    Overall the property was even better than expected! Very clean and well appointed - we instantly felt at home. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

  • Bella casetta, molto comoda in Londra. A 10' a piedi dalle stazioni di TowerBridge e Aldgate, dove passano molte linee della Metropolitana. Comoda anche per chi arriva da London City Airport. Vicinissima ai Docks. Zona tranquilla, il che è un bene. Certamente la nostra base anche per i prossimi viaggi a Londra!

    May 2014
  • Nicely decorated, well equipped and very comfortable apartment: this was a perfect choice in a convenient location for a long week-end with our 2 kids. Carolyn's tips to get around were very helpful and relevant.

    April 2014
  • We had a great time at Carolyn's flat and she was very flexible concerning our arrival time. It was clean, cosy, in a quiet neighborhood and very close to public transports.
    Carolyn's recommendations are very helpful (the Lahore Kebab House has really delicious indian food!).
    We would definitely come back to this apartment! Thank you!

About
I'm Carolyn, a lawyer, and I live between London and New York with my husband and 4 year old son, Xavier. I'm English, my husband Danny is a New Yorker, and we live in both of our countries because we love both places and can't choose between them! So for now, we travel back and forth and rack up a lot of air miles. We recently decided to rent out our London home to airbnb guests when we are not there. So it's a working home with everything you could need for a comfortable stay! We hope you love staying there as much as we do.
