About Nicholas Kynaston

Hello, my name's Nicholas, I love to travel (who doesn't?) and I am lucky enough to make my living out of it – by being a travel editor and writer and renting out two holiday apartments in the house I share with my Civil Partner Ben and our dog Barney.

I love gardening too and if you stay you'll probably see me weeding or maybe tending the chickens who live in an 'eglu' at the bottom of the garden.

I love London, so if you've got a question about the capital, don't hesitate to ask. I love foreign langages too, and can speak good Spanish, OK German (and partner Ben is Austrian, so we have that covered) and a bit of French.

Nicholas Kynaston purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Nicholas Kynaston chose Brixton

The moment we saw the house, we fell in love with it. It is one of the oldest in area, having been built in 1790 as the vicarage for the nearby church of Saint Andrews. Stockwell is central but not touristy and it takes around 8 minutes on the tube to get to the main tourist sites. It's a multicultural neighbourhood that we are proud to live in. The trendy area of Brixton is just a five minute walk away as is the district of Clapham, a gourmet's paradise with over 20 restaurants lining the High Street.

What makes this apartment unique

If you are looking for a property that is cosy but stylish and want a 30 metre (100 ft) sub-tropcical garden with palm tees and bamboos to rest in after a hard day's sightseeing in London then this is the place for you. You'll get to meet our adorable dog Barney there, a 10 year old labradoodle who loves playing and see our two Cotswold Legbar chickens, Inka and Maya who live at the bottom of the garden. Hopefully they'll be the mood for laying eggs while you're there and we'll be able to give you some of their unique blue shelled eggs for breakfast!

Very comfortable. Close to public transportation.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The apartment was comfortable and well equipped. It was an easy walk to the Tube and there were stores and restaurants nearby. They also had a beautiful garden in the back.

Perfect place to stay in a big city

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Griffin House. It was clean , comfortable and you could really relax in this spacious apartment. The extra towels that Nicholas provided and the little touches like a fruit bowl, chocolates, comfortable furniture and a good sized bed made our stay more pleasurable.

Nicholas is certainly a host with the most (we didn't get to meet Ben this time) and the garden he has created makes this a welcome oasis in the middle of a big city. We even saw a squirrel balancing just outside the window trying to reach a fig on the fig tree. To have a garden like this to sit in (even in October) makes it a wonderful place to stay.

Thank you for your hospitality Nicholas, and we look forward to staying with you again (if we can get in).

A lovely garden apartment

  • 5 of 5

The Griffin House garden apartment is a lovely and cozy place for travelers to stay in. Although we did not have the pleasure to meet Nicholas, Ben was extremely accommodating and very kind. Since we landed early in the morning we were allowed to check-in at 8am at no extra cost. They provided a small guidebook with information regarding the amenities and places to go within the neighborhood. We enjoyed our breakfast in the garden each morning, which the apartment provides direct access to. Across the street is a Costcutter market, which was very convenient. Although we did not take the subway, the station was less than a 10 minute walk. At the Stockwell station there are bicycle stations where you can rent bikes. We used that as our main source of transportation and it worked out best for us. I highly recommend the Griffin House for anyone. Thanks again!
