Simple pleasures

Why sacrifice your fresh-air fix for a taste of the high life? This former coach house has an enviable position on the edge of ancient woodland, never straying from the path of urban sophistication and old-fashioned relaxation. A cosy, timeless retreat, it might inspire a spot of reading in the garden (there’s a full wall of tomes to choose from), knitting in the rocking chair (an eames), or a trip to the deli to forage for food. Think of it as your own little house on the northern line (and keep an eye out for bears).

Spirit of the pioneers

Your host is a well-travelled architect who has spent the last three years working for a charity in kenya. Japan is another great love and evidence of her exploration can be seen throughout the house.

Back to nature

This secret hideaway conceals ingenious design tricks sure to impress city slickers and solace-seekers alike. Skylights, mirrored doors and a glass panel between the floors maximise the brightness, while a natural selection of oak, cherry wood, slate and limestone creates a tempting textural mix.

Head upstairs for a view into the deep, dark woods. Or hunker down under the rustic eaves where design classics contrast with quaint throws and homemade furniture. Your sylvan sanctuary is full of intriguing books and artefacts from africa, japan and beyond, so you can broaden your horizons even if you shun town.

About Owner / Property Manager

onefinestay gives you the chance to stay in someone's place while they're out of town. You get to live their life for a few days and nights.

Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room. And there's service to match.

Nobody wants to be a tourist, so our homes come with recommendations from the people who live in them. For everything else, we're here 24/7.

Why Owner / Property Manager chose England

Nestled between woods and parkland and perched atop a steep hill with sweeping views of the City below, Highgate is perhaps the closest London villages get to resembling the real thing. Not only does it look like a village, all clusters of Georgian townhouses, winding lanes and cutesy shops, but the area has community noticeboards crammed full of events on almost every street corner.

At the very height of all this urban tranquillity are the Highgate ponds – three large freshwater swimming ponds (two designated single sex and one for mixed bathing) open all year round.

What makes this cottage unique

Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too.

Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities.

Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand.

And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.

Notes:

Home truths: There is no permanent storage space in the twin bedroom, so we will set up a collapsible wardrobe for your stay. This home is not suitable for toddlers. Children over 12 and babies are welcome. There is a set of very steep wooden stairs which might not be suitable for the elderly. Although this home has a hugely ample bath, the shower is a very tight squeeze. There is a pull-out bed in the kitchen which can sleep one additional person.
