The benefit of staying in a London ‘village’ such as Crouch End, is that you have all amenities collected in one area, and right on your doorstep too. A two minute stroll down the road from the apartment is an array of local supermarkets, independent restaurants, traditional Victorian pubs, quirky cafes and boutique shops, should you wish to unwind away from the city centre. The area is not short of green open spaces and woodlands too, and for a bit of culture there are fringe theatres close by, cinemas to catch the latest films, even a Palace (although not of royalty), not to mention one of the most famous comedy stores in the world right at the end of the road.
London is a huge city encompassing far more than just the historic central area of the West End and the City. Away from the heart of the capital many of the old villages engulfed by the tide of urban expansion have survived to form fascinating and attractive suburbs. Crouch End is one of these, and surrounding this is Muswell Hill to the north, Hampstead and Highgate to the west, and Islington to the south. A visit to these local areas can really complement a trip to London.
Arriving from abroad, Heathrow airport is a direct tube ride to Finsbury Park (local underground station), which makes it the easiest and cheapest to get here. Gatwick is also a quick train ride away with links to Kings Cross station, only two tube stops away from the apartment. City Airport and Stansted are also easily accessible.
Being only 20 minutes away from St Pancras International Railway Station, makes getting to and from Europe on the Eurostar super quick and easy. With train tickets from £69 return, you could even hop over to Paris for the day!
Well, if any of the above sounds like it could be exactly what you would like to get out of a trip to London, check my online calendar, see if the price is right for your budget, and get in touch. I look forward to having you stay at Haringey Park Apartment....
There are many reasons to love this beautiful apartment. First, the listing accurately portrays its many features, but it's even lovelier than the pictures can show. You will feel like you are living in an Architectural Digest photo shoot, rich with architectural detail and pitch-perfect style. Everything is sparkling clean and in excellent working order. The owner is helpful, very nice, and easy to contact. Crouch End is a lovely spot - quiet, yet lively and filled with its own charm. Weary from a full day of London fun, we'd ride the tube home, eagerly anticipating our return to our beautiful flat. Public transportation is a breeze. (Americans, you can't imagine how great the bus and tube work well together!) Local pubs are close by. The Blue Legume serves fine breakfasts and lunches, and it's right down the block. After renting many Homeaway apartments in six different countries, I feel confident to say this apartment is in the very top category of excellence. We cannot wait to return!
Lovely apartment in a quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed being on the outskirts of London in the thriving community of Crouch End. High points were: many good restaurants and pubs nearby, handy shops for baked goods and groceries, easy access by bus and tube to London proper, wonderful green spaces and paths for walking. We had a wonderful ten day stay.
It's a lovely one bedroom flat with spacious rooms and beautifully furnished. It is a quarter mile from nearest bus, then easy access to inner London, with 10 minute bus and 15 minute tube rides (either Piccadilly or Victoria lines).
We'd definitely stay there again.
This is the second year running that we have booked this apartment and we use it as a base whilst in London visiting family. Crouch End is a great little village with all the amenities and a good leisure centre and is also well served by bus transport.
Sarah the owner is meticulous with her attention to detail in this beautifully appointed apartment. The bed is of top quality, ensuring a great nights sleep. Overall, this has to be one of the best places we have stayed at in all of our travels.
To begin with this property is beautifully decorated, very clean and spacious on a quiet street. The bed was so comfortable with luxury linens. Sarah provided many thoughtful details such as fresh flowers, a pint of milk, tea and chocolates. In addition plenty of hot water, reading material and two bath robes. Typically it is 7 pounds to uber to Finsbury Park Tube Station. The folks in Crouch were very kind and helpful. Two people actually walked us to our destination not just pointed where to go and a very kind young man helped me carry my suitcase up the stairs at the tube station. We had a great stay and felt very safe. Our uber driver told us Crouch End. is one of the better parts of London, my husband and I would agree.
The apartment was beautiful; the bed was wonderful! Nice touches everywhere, including robe and slippers, fresh flowers, and armoire for hanging clothes. The kitchen was well equipped - especially enjoyed the coffee maker and the window above the sink. A microwave would be nice. The bathroom was very roomy; had a great shower and a hair dryer, as well as a washer/dryer. We loved Crouch End! It's a nice, safe, pretty village and very walkable (and runable - I enjoyed my morning runs). A few minutes walk to the W7 bus and a short bus ride to Finsbury Park underground station, and you're on your way to London and anywhere else you want to go in England. Our favorite places in Crouch End were the thrift stores, Celeste (breakfast), Dunn's Bakery, Coffee Circus, and we did our grocery shopping at Waitrose and Broadway's Co-op (right in front of the bus stop). Our host was very sweet and she was responsive and helpful with travel plans. When I come back to England, this is the only place I'll stay.
