Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Highgate - Large 2 bed. wi-fi. Historic

Elegant unique flat in Historically important home. Great transport links.

Beautiful large flat with 2 large double rooms in an important Historic House near the centre of sought after Highgate Village. Just 20-25 minutes to the centre.

High speed wi-fi is available throughout the house.

This lovely home has the space and calming tones to help you unwind from a hard days sight-seeing:). There are large windows on every side of the home allowing natural light throughout the living and sleeping areas.

The gorgeous lounge is very big with an impressive antique chandelier and has window seating. There is also a large dining table for family get-togethers.

The rooms have King-size double beds and plenty of storage space. Large windows in each room look out onto trees. The bed linen is crisp white and of the highest quality. Fluffy towels are also provided.

The living room has cable TV and 1 of the bedroom also has cable TV. There is a large DVD selection of new and classic DVDs. There is also plenty of reading material should you just want to peacefully relax.

HIGHGATE VILLAGE is well known as having the country feel in the big city. It borders amazing Hampstead Heath which is arguably the best park in London with its wild woods, Kenwood House and swimming ponds.

Highgate has a great selection of traditional English pubs serving good food with a homely atmosphere. There are also a number of good quality restaurants to choose from too.

The 'village' is the home of Clive Owen, George Michael, Jude Law and Kate Moss to name but a few big names.

The house itself is of great historical importance as Vinayak Savarkar, an Indian philosopher, once lived here and plotted the fight against the English for Indian independence. Ghandi and Lenin also visited the house. You can often see Indian pilgrims taking photos outside of the home.

ABOUT US

I am Portuguese and my husband is English. The apartment is our London home. We are currently working abroad for a while and have depersonalised the home to make it more amenable to holiday lets. However, you will notice the effort that has gone into the décor throughout the home and we hope you enjoy it.

Any questions, please just ask.

The home is just 2 bus stops up the hill from the underground There are 3 buses which come up, so are very regular (Of course you can walk up if you are feeling fit).

The underground is just a 7 minute walk down the hill, or again you can catch a bus if you like.

For late check-ins we need to add a fee of £25 after 7pm and £50 after 11:30pm and £100 after 1am. This is to compensate the check-in team who would need to work unsociable hours and take taxis. Please BE AWARE that many other owners will request this fee after you have booked. We prefer to be upfront about it.

About The Owner

We are Lisa and Dominic, a friendly married couple. Lisa is Portuguese and Dominic is English. We have decided to let out the flat as we have moved to Qatar. We have a team of cleaners who will do the change over and handover the keys.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2012

Why The Owner chose Camden & Covent Garden

We have lived in the property ourselves for the past 3 years. We have really enjoyed living in the property and have made efforts to make it as comfortable as possible for guests.

The area is quiet, safe and close by to beautiful parks. The property is spacious with amazing large sash windows overlooking trees.

The property has cable TV in the lounge and 1 of the bedrooms.

The home is elegantly furnished and the bed linen is of top quality.

A geat place to stay in a lovely London neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Dom and Lisa's flat was a perfect location for our London stay: The flat is large, bright, full of character, and convenient to the parks and restaurants of Highgate. We were well supplied with all comforts and felt at home immediately. Our thanks to our hosts and their representatives for a wonderful week in a great city.

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

We loved staying outside of downtown London in the lovely neighborhood of Highgate. It was easy enough to get into London via the metro system. The apartment, for the 2 of us, was huge and nicely decorated. The only drawback was the lighting, especially in the bathroom. One mediocre ceiling light was not sufficient for putting on makeup, and unfortunately, no other rooms offered better lighting and mirrors for that. No electrical outlet in the bathroom for plugging in a hair dryer or curling iron. A few of the smaller lamps had bulbs that were burned out, or had plugs that were not compatible with the wiring, so they couldn't be plugged in. The TV offered none of the regular news stations, like BBC. The mattress pad on the bed closest to the street caused us both to sweat significantly at night. I think that if these minor items could be improved, it would warrant a higher rating.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with our four children aged 12 to 18 and we were very impressed by this apartments attributes,very well appointed and equipped! As this is a listed historic building, all original features are maintained and floors on this second story apartment are mainly wooden,so please bear in mind...no loud footfall appreciated!

Wonderful London Flat!

  • 5 of 5

We felt very comfortable and at home in this beautiful flat. The location is very nice, on a quiet street, but very near to restaurants, shops, and public transportation. The flat is very nicely decorated. The beds are comfortable with sumptuous linens. Everything was clean and well-cared for. We only wish we had been able to stay longer! Very good communication with Dom and with the London team. Highly recommend it his place!

A beautiful apartment in a good neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful apartment. There was plenty of room for the five of us. We enjoyed walking across the Heath to Hampstead to the cafés and pubs there. The apartment is located close enough to the Northern line tube, which made getting into the centre easy. Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home.

Car: not necessary

We are lucky to have the apartment in a very beautiful, safe and quiet part of London, without being too far from the Centre. Just 100 meters away you can enjoy the lovely surroundings of Waterlow Park, with it's café and duck pond. A lovely place for a short stroll or a picnic in the Summer time. The park also has 6 tennis courts which you can book per the hour. We provide tennis rackets inside the apartment, though you may need to buy your own balls,.

For a more spectacular park (perhaps London's best) you can have a 15 minute walk or a short bus ride to Hampstead Heath. This is a park where you could easily spend a whole morning or afternoon walking around it's wild woods and totally forget you are in the city. This park also has swimming ponds for those brave enough to swim in a more natural setting. There are male, female and mixed ponds to choose from. Kenwood House inside the park is also one of our favourite places to go for a special breakfast or lunch where you can eat al fresco in an amazing setting right next to the House which is taken care of by British Heritage and also worth a look inside.

Highgate has a great choice of traditional British pubs. For the best food try the Red Lion & Sun, though you may need to book a table here. For best countryside feel try the Prince of Wales or the Wrestlers a bit further around. In the Summer the best for outside drinking is The Flask which gets very busy when the sun is out.
