I'm an urban designer and spare-time artist who loves to cook, and eat out even more. Will works in academia and politics and is into The West Wing, cricket and making music.
Sweet room in a loft apartment with views & spacious living area~ With the bus stop just round the corner, i'd rather live east near the markets & quite cafe surroundings than in the heart of London anyday. Highly recommended~ Claire & Will were also helpful in any way they can~
We loved staying at Claire and Will's excellent place! It's a large house, bursting with character. Fresh towels and bedlinen, and everything was spotless. Location is superb. Inbetween two parks, and right around the corner from some outstanding markets. We can recommend breakfast and coffee at "look mum no hands". Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to meet them - we came home later at night, and they were up early. Even so, communication was clear, and we could always call them. Recommended!
We had a wonderful time at Will & Claire's flat when we stayed there for a long weekend beginning of July. Will and Claire are super nice and gave us great tips where to go and which buses to take etc. Lovely Broadway Market is close by - we really loved the area. The flat is conveniently located near a main street with great transport connections, which also means that you have a bit of traffic noise at night (with open window). The hosts and the flat are great - I can highly recommend it and would stay there again anytime!
The apartment is as beautiful in person as in the pictures, and Will was a gracious host (we didn't get to meet Claire).
We really enjoyed the nearby cafes, grocery and shops (next to London Fields), and capitalized on the bus stop at the corner daily.
I booked Claire and Will's room for a Director staying in town for a few weeks. They were a pleasure to deal with and my director loved the stay and was really happy. Will definitely be using them again in the future!
It was a very nice stay at Will and Claires house. The space is truly beautiful, there where flowers, fresh bedsheets and towels in my room and i felt very welcomed. the area was perfect and well connected with trains and busses. would definately come back!
Claire and Will are the perfect hosts! My stay could not have been better except the lack of time. C&W are so nice, helpful, caring, communicative, simply charming and fun to be with, They try hard to make it a perfect stay. The flat is lovely as well, located very close to the center of Shoreditch with a bus stop outside. The flat is decorated in a modern and stylish way and looks even better than in the pictures. There is so much space and I would have loved to stay longer in this flat and also spend more time with Claire and Will.
My stay with Will & Claire was fantastic! Their place is unique and to have a piano to play was an added bonus for me! Both Will & Claire made me feel very welcome and made me feel as though I could come and go as I pleased whilst staying there.
The area is in easy reach of many transport links and broadway market is a 5 min walk away with plenty of nice pubs to visit.
I would highly recommend staying with them.
Claire and Will were very kind, warm & welcoming hosts. They were extremely accomodating and helpful with information about local galleries and activities. I am very glad to have met them!
Claire and Will's place is just simply beautiful! What an uplifting and calming base in London, very much needed when you're running around all day. Everything in their home is charming, beautiful or interesting. The area is lovely. London Fields is my favourite place to be if you like being east, and is quite convenient to get to from the west too. They themselves are very considerate and engaging people, whom you'd definitely like to have a cup of tea with. A great experience! Would definitely stay again xx
Will stayed at my place while attending a local conference, unfortunately our paths didn't cross very much while he was in town but during trhe quick chats we had it was obvious he's a great guy! The place was left clean and tidy and I would gladly welcome Will back. Highhest Possible recommendation.
Claire was a polite, clean and lovely guest. The little time that we spent together was super duper :)
Claire answers fast and is very nice and pleasant to communicate with.
She and her friends left the flat in a great shape and I would be happy to welcome them into my home again any time!
What a gracious, attractive couple to have stay with us. Hope to have them back in Newport
What a wonderful experience to have you visiting our summerhouse. Thanks for the beautiful flowers and for your nice letter. You are always welcome back.
Clair is the most wonderful and gentle person, so easy to have around and if that was not enough she is also breathtakingly beautiful! did i mention fun? :-) it was like having a girlfriend moving in... my son cant really get his head around that Clair has moved out- 4 weeks was not long enough! But i am happy to say that even if we were strangers at the beginning i am happy that we are now friends and I am part of Clairs growing network here in Copenhagen... if you have the chance to host Clair and her charming boyfriend -just say yes!
My husband and I went to stay with Claire and Will earlier this year and had a wonderful time in their lovely home.
The location is great and feels very safe. Claire and Will are friendly, interesting to chat to and made us feel very welcome. Their place is spacious, cool and comfortable. It's located away from busy roads and noisy nightlife so we got a very good night's sleep and felt well rested to enjoy our day sight-seeing in London.
If you're looking for a place that's friendly, welcoming, cool and comfortable I can highly recommend Claire's Gaff. Cannot wait to return soon! Abi and Tom, Oxford.
