About the property

1 Bedroom, Sleeps 6 (max)

1 bedroom apartment, located in Finchley and very convenient for London, free internet, quiet residential street. Only 3-4 minutes from the underground station taking you straight into Central London in 20 minutes without changing. It has a direct link to Kings Cross/St Pancras and very convenient for the Eurostar. We offer luxury accommodation consisting of:

- 1 Bedroom - a large double bedroom with a 5ft pocket sprung bed and a fold-down bed. Good cupboard space, ironing board and iron.

- a great lounge with comfortable couches, DVD and cable TV. There is a sofa bed and a further single can be added to make up to 6 people sleeping.

- Bathroom has a separate power shower and a full sized bath.

- Kitchen is fully fitted with a fridge freezer, new cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, gas hob, and there is a table and chairs for dining. Fully equipped with all cooking utensils.

- Washing Machine - There is a washing machine for clothes located in the kitchen.

The Locality: It is a very clean and tidy apartment and it is in the London suburb called Finchley which is a very safe and nice area. It is located in a quiet residential road away from passing traffic or train noise.

Very Close – max 10 minutes walk: At the top of my road, there are a few shops including a confectioner shop and a small supermarket where you can buy essentials. Then, about 10 minutes walk (or there are bus services from the top of the road), there is Finchley Central or North Finchley, which has the big supermarkets called Tesco’s, Waitrose and Sainsbury's and all the banks. North Finchley has more extensive shopping facilities including a very wide range of general shops, cafes and restaurants and should be able to cater for all of your needs.

Hampstead is one of the most exclusive suburb and park areas of London and I find it very pleasurable just walking through the roads to see the beautiful houses, many of which are absolutely fabulous (see below).

Shopping Centre Complex and Local Areas: Closest Shopping Centre: 15-20 minutes by a bus 1 minute from the apartment is Brent Cross shopping centre in Hendon which has all of the main shops including John Lewis, Marks and Spencer and all of the mainstream fashion shops and well known high street chains and has extensive options of places to eat. This is an enclosed shopping centre (and so you don't have to worry about the weather) and there is a bus (the 326) which runs from the top of my road (1-2 minute walk) and takes you directly to the shopping centre where it terminates, so you cannot get lost.


The apartments come equipped with cable TV and broadband wireless internet with a fast 20 MB internet connection, for connecting to your own computer.

Hamstead & Belsize Park: Hamstead is one of the prettiest areas of North London. It is within reasonable Distance: It has a vast choice on offer. It is an extremely pretty suburb of London. On one side it has countless restaurants, cafés, bars, cinemas, pancakes, shops and theatre and on the other side it has Hampstead Heath with breathtaking views of London, a teahouse in an old English mansion and beautiful walks through very pretty parkland.

Just a stop away from Hampstead is Belsize Park (but is also a pleasant walk from Hampstead) which is a very pleasant up market area with many restaurants and a lovely cinema.

Then another stop away on the underground is the well known district of Camden. This is home to the very famous Camden Lock Market, which has a vast array of stalls, food and shops on offer and is very easy to reach. There are stalls with every kind of interest you can think of. The fashions and styles are very fascinating.

Highly reccomended.

  • 5 of 5

Here I lived the authentic life of classic english neighbourhood - mentioned in the novels of Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling) - in a peaceful and typical London street with all neighbours so friendly, in a beautiful and characteristic house provided with the most modern equipment. I recomend this for all lenghts of stay, included my 6 months. It is the best relation price-services. A special mention for the owner Mr. Jacob: kind, obliging, and ready to help constantly.

I stayed at this house for a number of weeks, it had everything we needed and was clean, comfortable and cosy. Lovely safe neighbour hood and very tranquil. It's a great location with a few minutes walk from West Finchley station and nearby shops. Take a stroll to Lovers Walk a short distance away with it's bygone street laterns and gated doorways.

Russell, the owner is friendly and helpful with nothing being to much trouble. I loved the ground floor flat which had a beautiful large kitchen.

We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay and would definitely stay here again.

Peaceful and pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

The flat is great; the neighborhood is peaceful and quiet; the loudest sounds are chirping birds and wind in the trees, with the Northern Line trains swooshing by faintly in the distance. A very convenient shop (The Golden Eagle) is open until 11 pm for milk, crackers, wine, soda, good Polish groceries, etc. There's a wonderful walking path (Dollis Brook Greenway) about a 2 minutes' walk away; you can walk for miles in both directions, all the way to Hampstead Heath if you want, then take bus or train back. Bus 326 and Northern Line are very convenient, both within a 5 min walk. I'd stay there again in a minute!

Highly recommended 1 Bedroom Apartment in Finchley

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights and my family consisted of 5 adults and 2 children (8 & 7)

The description regarding the location, layout & facilities was accurate. It was clean and well maintained.Mr Russell Jacob provided a good customer service. I would recommend this property to my friends and relatives.Finally it was 5 minutes walk to West Finchley underground tube station to any parts of London for a fare of £12/adult during offpeak. Free car park as well.

It is bright, comfortable, clean and spacious and is ideal for couples, families and sharers.
