Lovely 1900 sq foot, 4 Bedroom, 2 bathroom Victorian house in Islington, London (central location). The house is elegant with lots of period features and in very good condition.

The house is a 7 minutes walk from the Highbury and Islington tube station (10 mins Oxford Circus), 7 minutes walk to Islington's fashionable Upper Street and a few minutes walk from the lovely Highbury Fields Park.

Fantastico alojamiento

  • 5 of 5

Hemos pasado 6 dias en familia (6 adultos y 2 niños pequeños) en casa de Ed y Sarah y la experiencia ha sido estupenda!

Primero agradecer a Ed la total disponibilidad (por telefono o email) y su atencion y cuidado en todos los detalles. Ha sido un anfitrion perfecto!.

Por otro lado, la ubicacion es muy buena, la casa esta muy proxima a dos estaciones de metro y tiene cerca varias paradas de autobus, por lo que llegar al centro de Londres es bastante sencillo. Tambien apuntar que la zona es muy tranquila y que tiene varios parques y jardines donde los niños han podido jugar.

En cuanto a la vivienda, es muy espaciosa y se corresponde con las fotos publicadas. El area de cocina de la planta sotano es ideal tanto para empezar la jornada con un buen desayuno como para reponer fuerzas en la cena.

En resumen, hemos disfrutado mucho de los dias que hemos pasado y sin duda intentaremos repetir!!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a 3 generation family and we stayed here over Christmas. The location couldn't be better. It was so easy to get into the city and when "at home" so many food stores cafes etc. around. The kids loved the park and the adults loved the coffee shops nearby.

Best of all was dealing with Ed, the owner who supplied great info on everything from tube routes to where to buy organic meat (online).

We loved our 3 week stay here.

very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in this house. We are two families with kids . The house corresponds 100% to the photos. Very beautiful place! it's well situated to get to London and in the mean time it's in a calm, residential location in Islington, closed to a park where our kids enjoyed playing before and after visiting London!

Moreover Ed (the owner) has been very responsive and flexible to all our needs and requests. This was really much appreciated and facilitated our trip and stay. We recommend this property!

Activity and Interests


The house is brilliantly located for transport. All London airports are easily accessible by train/tube/taxi. Eurostar (Kings Cross) is one tube stop or 5/10 mins in a taxi. Highbury Islington and Holloway Road Tubes are both a 5 minute walk (Oxford Circus 10 mins on the tube). There are also lots of buses going to the west end and city. It's a 10 min overground train ride to the newly fashionable Shorditch/Hoxton area of London.The west end is a 15 minute taxi ride. Car hire is not essential.


There are local shops and main supermarkets close by for groceries. There is a nice park, Highbury Fields, a few minutes walk away (it's surrounded by Georgian houses, has a great playground for kids and a swimming pool). The top of Islington's Upper Street is a 5 minute walk. Upper Street is great for restaurants, bars, boutique shops, cinemas etc. There’s a nice French Delicatessen in the middle of the road which is also great for coffee, breakfast, light lunch etc.
