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 journalist 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 believe London is one of the world's greatest cities, so if you've got a question about the capital, don't hesitate to ask.

Unusually for an Englishman I like foreign languages too, and can speak good Spanish, OK German and a bit of French.

Nicholas Kynaston purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Nicholas Kynaston chose London

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 local church of Saint Andrews. Stockwell is central but not touristy - it takes just 8 minutes by tube to reach Victoria. It's a multicultural neighbourhood that we are proud to live in and is close to the vibrant districts of Vauxhall, Brixton and Clapham.

What makes this apartment unique

Large windows flood it with light and the 30-metre (100 ft) back garden is unusual in London for being such a good size. When we moved in, the house was in a sorry state, dilapidated and having been used as a squat. We've now restored it to its former glory uncovering marble fireplaces that had been painted over with white paint and lovely wooden floor boards in the process. We love living here and we love having guests to stay.

A wonderful place to stay in London

  • 5 of 5

My wife, teenage children and I, along with my mother in law, stayed for five nights in the top floor apartment. Great transportation options. The apartment is only a 5-10 minute walk to several underground stops, and we were quickly in the city each day. The 88 bus was also very useful. Nick and his partner were very helpful, and we enjoyed having a spacious and well-equipped space to relax in. The small supermarket across the street was perfect for getting food for breakfast or other meals. A great experience overall.

Estupenda experiencia/ Great Expirience

  • 5 of 5

Nuestra familia, 2 adultos y tres niños, hemos estado 8 días en agosto de 2016 y la experiencia ha sido muy buena.

La casa está muy bien situada y comunicada en el barrio de Stockwell

En cinco minutos llegas al metro que te lleva a las zonas turísticas del centro de Londres en muy poco tiempo, o paradas de autobuses que te pueden permitir ver la ciudad desde otra perspectiva.

La casa está tal y como aparece en las fotos y todo funciona correctamente.

Los propietarios, Nick y Ben, son un encanto y en todo momento responderán a todas tus dudas antes de ir y las que te surjan allí.

En definitiva una experiencia muy recomendable

Our family, 2 adults and 3 children, was there in august 2016 for 8 days.

The house is on Stockwell, right five minutes to the underground and buses. It takes 12 minutes go to the most popular places in London.

The house is nice, like it appears in the photos, and the equipment works right.

The owners, Nick and Ben are charming and they will solve all your doubts before your travel and when you stay there.

Great experience

We are located in Stockwell, an up-and-coming area of London and to reach the West End and City of London, takes just 10 minutes from our local tube (metro) station. We are opposite a small supermarket and have l great local pub as well as an organic bakery and sewing cafe in the area. The trendy area of Brixton is a five minute walk away, as is bustling Clapham High Street, which is home to over 20 restaurants.

Five minutes walk from us is the district of Clapham with its high street containing over 20 restaurants and pubs.

Brixton, one of London's new trendy areas is 5-minutes walk the other way. Here you'll find Brixton Village, a Victorian former market hall that's' been turned into a must-visit destination with a couple of dozen restaurants, bars and vintage shops packed into its colonnades.
