Please do not wear Stilettos or any sharp heels on the reclaimed parquet floor, which leaves indentations.

We are Architects, working and living in London. We have spent many years restoring our historic, locally listed home on Newington Green, which used to be a well known Swedish Restaurant called Anna's Place. Still listed in the rough guide as a place to visit.
We enjoy meeting people from all over the world, and thoroughly enjoy hosting on Airbnb, which has been a positive experience all round.
