Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Camden & Covent Garden - Sweeps Apartment

Superb modern airy top floor one bedroom apartment in bustling Leather Lane

For a single person or 2 people this one bedroomed apartment is ideal in a private gated block converted only 5 years ago. In the courtyard is a cycle store, gated refuse storage, courtyard with SW aspect. The apartment is compact, light and airy with high ceilings and 3 tall windows. The solid wood front door opens into the living area and with separate fully equipped kitchen and bathroom.

The apartment is secure, modern and tastefully furnished with oak floors. It is fully equipped. The greatest advantage is it's Central Location location. Literally almost every major London attraction is accessible by walking as well as being on the train, tube or bus routes the stops for which are 2 minutes walk away from the flat.

Take a look at the map..you can't better this location which is why we bought it for our own use. We are happy that our guests will enjoy all the same advantages.

A stunningly central location in EC1, Sweeps apartment is the perfect base for the historic and cultural sights, the theaters and restaurants and the shopping areas.

The apartment is near Fleet street, St Pauls, The Gherkin and Shard, Liverpool Street and the financial districts, the City, The legal district, Greys Inn and Temple, and it is possible to walk south to the embankment in 10 minutes.

Chancery lane tube station is 5 minutes on Holborn and this is on Central line taking you to oxford Street, Covent garden, Leicester Square and Marble Arch. Farringdon station is also 10 minutes away and is on Thameslink and Hammersmith and City, Circle and Bakerloo lines.

Bus stops for routes to every location in London are st the end of Leather Lane 5 minutes away. It is possible to reach the West End, Mayfair, Covent garden, City district, the Olympic site, South Bank, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, Theater and entertainment areas very easily with regular tube, train and bus routes on your doorstep. River routes are also easily accessible taking you to Hampton Court and Greenwich.

Sweeps is in a gated site built by Dewent developers in 2006 to a high standard. It is secure and has a contained tree lined courtyard with up lighting on the trees. The cycle store is available. The access to the main building is enclosed and secure. The access to the apartments is also secure on a top floor corridor.

Un avis d'habitués!

  • 5 of 5

C'est avec beaucoup de regret que nous avons quitté Sweeps Apartment à l'issue de notre 4ème séjour dans les lieux. Nous ne pouvons que nous répéter: l'appartement est confortable, clair, propre et bien équipé. L'immeuble est très bien entretenu, sûr; il se trouve dans une rue sans circulation automobile, de jour comme de nuit. Tous les services et les commerces nécessaires sont dans un faible rayon. L'immeuble étant situé entre St Paul's et Trafalgar Square, sa position est parfaite pour effectuer les visites dans Londres. Madame Bowen est une gestionnaire efficace et de toute confiance.

AMAZING! COMFORTABLE! ACCESSIBLE!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed staying here. It was a perfect location near the central line and I slept like a baby with the quiet surroundings. TV and internet were perfect. The building is secure and being a single woman that's important. Coffee shop across the street is great. Its a very well maintained flat, clean, put together, and I was provided with everything I needed. Towels, Hairdryer, etc. Just want to say Angela thank you so much for everything. You have a marvelous place!

This apartment is a little gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sweeps for 4 weeks (July/ August). Firstly I agree with all previous comments. The building is well maintained, clean and fresh. Gated access and key entry into the building means it is safe/ secure. The apartment itself is well equipped, windows are big & west facing which means it is light and airy, décor modern, fresh and clean. Sweeps location means it is ideal for exploring on foot in any direction. Dealing with Angela the owner was faultless and very easy. If you want to experience city living in London this is the apartment for you. Would I stay here again? definitely.

Fidèles à Holborn!

Ceci était notre troisième séjour dans Sweeps Apartments et c'est toujours le même enthousiasme! On peut faire toute confiance au contenu de l'annonce. Les contacts avec Madame Bowen sont très cordiaux. Elle se montre rapide et efficace dans la gestion de l'appartement. C'est une adresse à recommander.

Perfect Central Apartment for Two

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing experience working with Angela and an even better experience while staying at her apartment. Would recommend to any of our friends/family visiting London. We hope to stay here again on our next trip to London.

My wife and I were seeking an affordable apartment rental that was, more or less, in central London for our ten day visit to London. The apartment itself was EXACTLY as advertised in Angela's listing. The building was located on charming and energetic street that hosted a market with dozens of local vendors, mostly food vendors serving lunch, every weekday during lunchtime. (We found the vendors to be very friendly and apart from the mid-day rush, we could not really tell they were there and it did not generate any noise, morning or night.) The neighborhood, including Leather Lane, is full of cafes, pubs, and a variety of excellent restaurants, and other useful stores. We found that the area is definitely more active during the weekdays than the weekends. If you're concerned about safety, in our experience staying there, we always felt safe not just in the apartment itself, but walking the nearby streets, even later in the night.

The apartment is a few minutes walk from the Thames as well as the various public transportation systems. Despite the apartment's accessibility to the public transportation, our goal was to see the City of London by foot and for that, the location of Angela's apartment was perfect. The trip from Heathrow to the apartment is very easy and manageable via the tube.

Angela could not have been more accommodating throughout the entire process and we are incredibly thankful to have found her and her apartment for our stay. We appreciated her thoroughness and organization regarding the amenities and accessing the apartment. The apartment was very clean upon our arrival and we found it to be very comfortable.

To put it in a sentence: We were incredibly happy that we chose to stay at Angela's apartment and will hopefully be returning to stay there again soon.

Retour à Holborn

  • 5 of 5

Notre appréciation sur notre 2ème séjour ne peut être qu'une redite: Courtoisie et efficacité de Mme Bowen, calme de l'immeuble et confort de l'appartement, proximité des services (superettes, arrêts de bus), localisation permettant d'atteindre à pied de nombreux sites ( City, Inns of Court, British Museum ...)

En somme, toutes les conditions sont réunies pour envisager un 3ème séjour!

Wifi, bedlinen, towels, soap, shampoo, tea, coffee and end of stay cleaning is included in the price. Ideally the flat is for 2 people but a small extra person could sleep on the sofa for an extra cost. Leather Lane buzzes in the week with its street market and is very quiet at weekends. Coffee shops opposite and various facilities and services abound along this interesting old street. Two minutes walk away is Holborn High Street with is great variety of architecture, retail facilities and Hatton garden the mecca for jewellery -a favourite for couples. Leather Lane is proud of its heritage and weekday market (10am to 4pm Mon to Friday only) selling foods, clothes and trinkets. Parking is free at weekends on and near Leather Lane but there are several official car parks nearby.
