The space

Lovely family home with many original period details in a quiet road in Highbury, North London.

I can offer a double room at the top of the house and breakfast to go with it! [toast, cereal, juices, etc.]

You are also welcome to use the front room and TV or the picturesque garden with fish pond [Smokers can smoke out here as long as you use an ashtray!]

You will have to share the bathroom [bath, shower and loo] with me but it is big and there is a small 2nd loo.

What else?

Gas central heating/hot water.
All bed linen and towels.

If you are coming by car, I have Local Authority parking vouchers available for on-street parking at £10.50 per day [I know, I know! it's expensive parking in London].

But you can easily get by without a car....I'm located in Zone 2 and close to excellent rail, tube and bus links for all parts of London and beyond, including Euro Star. Highbury & Islington, Canonbury or Arsenal are the nearest tube stations and there are various buses options.

The beautiful Clissold Park is a 5 min walk and boasts wildlife and lakes and a great cafe.
Highbury Fields is 5 mins the other way with all-year, flood-lit tennis courts and a Leisure Centre with swimming, gym, sauna & Turkish facilities.
Both parks have recently refurbished, extensive children's playgrounds.

Good local shops are up the top of the road, a 5 min walk away ~ organic Butcher, Fishmonger, Deli, Bakery, Greengrocer, Fromagerie, Supermarket, Thai massage therapy spa, Newsagent, Post Office, Dry Cleaner, Hardware store.
A couple of restaurants [Turkish, Mediterranean] and take-aways [Chinese, Fish and Chips] and a pub.
Everything you need....even a unisex hairdresser!

You can be independent or take advantage of my wide-ranging London knowledge.

Please contact with any other questions or queries.
