vacation rental description

Our flat is a cozy, top floor haven in Highgate, one of London's most desirable areas. It's a studio on a lovely, quiet street of restored Edwardian homes. Transport links are excellent; the Highgate tube station is less than 5 minutes from the flat (from there it's a quick 15 minute ride to central London) and double-decker buses leave from just outside the station.

Highgate Village is an easy walk and quaint shops with food and supplies are just around the corner. The flat has a double bed and a double futon plus full kitchen and bath. The village has a genuine 19th century feel and remains relatively unchanged since Hogarth, Coleridge, Carlyle and Dickens came here. Highgate benefits from over 800 acres of Hampstead Heath and enjoys magnificent views of London.

Picturesque lanes and pretty Georgian cottages abound, as do historic pubs where the ancient ceremony of "Swearing on the Horns" is still carried out. Highgate also boasts London's largest private residence after Buckingham Palace. Baroness Burdett Coutts, John Betjeman, Oliver Cromwell, Nell Gwyn, Dick Whittington, Rod Stewart, George Michael, Annie Lennox, Clive Owen and Sting are just a few of the former and current residents of this wonderful village. If you’re up for something different, take a tour of Highgate Cemetery, a vast Victorian necropolis where Dickens, George Eliot, Karl Marx and an array of other illustrious Londoners now rest.

Feel like a stroll (or run) through the forest? The entrance to Highgate Wood is just a block from the flat. Walking/jogging paths traverse 70 lovingly preserved acres of oak, hornbeam and holly wood that were originally part of the Ancient Forest of Middlesex which covered much of London, Hertfordshire and Essex. 70 different species of bird have been recorded here, alongside foxes, grey squirrels, and butterflies. There are also football and cricket fields, a children’s playground, a café and an information centre.

Note from previous guest:
"Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful flat. The girls were thrilled when we arrived (your directions were perfect even for us first timers). They couldn't stop exclaiming how sweet it was and how they'd want to live in a little apartment just like that! We loved the way it was decorated - it looked even better than in the pictures and Highgate was a perfect spot from which to enjoy London. The neighborhood was so charming and relaxed and yet the tube gave us easy access to the hustle & bustle of central London. We loved Hampstead Heath and Highgate village - we attended a musical at the Gatehouse and a town faire in the local park. We had a grand time in London and were always happy to come "home" to our little flat. Thanks again!"

Here's what London Walks says in their description of the (highly recommended) walking tour they do every Sunday:
Highgate Village "a world apart"
"What kind of sorcery is this? We're just a few stops up the Northern Line, but we're in a country village nestling round what was once an old pond. Yes, we've taken a brief tube journey into timeless England. Here are lanes and cottages and Georgian houses and spectacular views across London. Here are Coleridge, Dickens, Betjeman, Cromwell, Nell Gwyn, Dick Whittington, Yehudi Menuhin, George Michael, Annie Lennox, and Sting. And after the walk, there's Highgate Cemetery ("one of the most astonishing places in London...architecture's answer to Hieronymus Bosch") or, on its wooded slope on the Heath, Kenwood House. In short, this is the perfect London Walk for a fine Sunday afternoon. But keep it under your hat, because if the word got out Highgate would be a major tourist attraction!"

Monthly rates are available on request.
