About the property

A Total House: Offering Great Elegance, Comfort and Luxury

An ideal home from home for 2, 3 or 4 people visiting London.

An elegant, expertly designed and furnished Victorian Cottage, close to the centre of Muswell Hill, a popular enclave in North London. Only 6 miles from Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and Big Ben, yet Muswell Hill has a tranquility cherished by its residents. Very popular with families, it has every amenity close to hand, shops, restaurants and an Everyman cinema.

The cottage, has been admired by all who stay there, with its well appointed Kitchen, complete with oven, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. The Kitchen opens on to a lovely Dining Room with overhead roof lantern, lending the room a delightful light and airy atmosphere. The cottage keeps cosy with underfloor heating. The Bathroom has a shower stall, and a separate bath too, for lovely pampering soaks. The comfortable Sitting Room has a TV and DVD player, WI-FI hub, and well stocked Book Shelves. A great space for four people to relax after a day's sightseeing, or simply to close the door and "chill out." Upstairs, the two equal sized bedrooms both have double beds, and generous sized wardrobes.

There is also a private, rear patio/garden where on warm summer evenings, you can enjoy an "alfresco" meal or glass of wine. Blissful!

Beautiful home, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt at home. John and Kathy were so accommodating to us, they'd even been kind enough to supply us with basic breakfast supplies, and after our long flight from Philadelphia we were so grateful not to have to worry about that! The home is pristine, it's obvious how much care and thought has been put into making sure guests feel welcome. Muswell Hill is a wonderful area to stay in also, and the tourist information supplied by our hosts was very helpful. Thank you so much John and Kathy!

Loved this north London cottage

The host John was very informative and helpful in getting us settled in. The cottage was spotless and nicely decorated. It is lovely and has everything you would need. The location was great as well, in a nice village that is easily walkable.

Très agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5

Accueil très sympathique. Jolie résidence, très agréable, tout confort.

Éloignée des transports en commun.

À améliorer : pas de machine à café, ça manque...

Et impossibilité d’utiliser la douchette de la douche sans se recevoir de l’eau sur la tête.

A 5 day family sight seeing tour of London

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely, very clean and spacious, warm and comfortable.

We were there to see the sights of central London and therefore used it as a base for sleeping and a late night meal. It was also nice to have access to a small garden to sit out at breakfast time.

Our hosts were helpful and friendly.

Unlimited wifi appealed to our children.

Our only slight criticism is that there are not enough plates and glasses and no oven gloves.

Owner's Response: Jane, Andrew and family were lovely guests. It is pleasure hosting such nice folk. Although the weather was not always the best, they really enjoyed their time in London visiting museums and galleries and much else. They enjoyed coming home to the cottage after a busy day's sightseeing, and we warmly invite them to return to us, on their next trip to London.
