Clean modern & well located
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
The property is well located for visitors arriving from Heathrow airport being five minutes walk from Piccadilly line stations. Visitors using Eurostar are particularly well catered for as this is ten minutes on the tube. Many of London's attractions are easy to reach. Places such as Camden Lock (ten minutes bus journey), Covent Garden, Leicester Sq. (ten minutes tube journey), Houses of Parliament (25 minutes tube journey), British Museum (twenty minutes bus journey), St. Pauls Cathedral, British Museum, Tate Gallery etc.
Despite this the apartment is quiet and the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of London's crowded and noisey streets. Our past guests have commented on this and how comfortable it is. So don't delay, book today!
The apartment has been furnished with good quality furniture all of which are from sustainable sources or antique. The bed linen provided (sheets, duvets and pillow covers) are organic as are the mattresses and towels. They are very comfortable with a high thread count, and significant weight to be soft and fluffy : )
The main bedroom has a King Size bed which is 150cm wide and 200cm long. Each bed is provided with 2 pillows per person. The living room has a day bed which can be used as a sofa during the day, but has a standard single mattress 90cm wide and 190cm long. A mattress topper and protector are also provided for comfort and hygiene. We believe this to be more comfortable and convenient than a sofa bed and guests agree even those with back problems.
There are 2 TV's, one in the Living Room, another in the Bedroom.
We are as committed to using ecologically sustainable materials as we are to maintaining high standards of cleanliness.
We provide 3 bins for guests to separate their waste into recyclables, food waste (composted in our garden) and non recyclables so that only the minority of waste goes to landfill.
Now using 100% renewable electricity and a gas provider that is committed to using all it's profits to invest in renewable energy.
Whether you think these factors are important or not of course doesn't matter the apartment looks great, its clean, well maintained, equipped and perfectly located. We have excellent ratings which we've worked hard to achieve and maintain and we keep our prices competitive. So you can book with confidence.

The South East England region
London is the most international of British cities. In fact it's one of the most international of the world's cities!!!!! More languages spoken here than New York so put that in your pipe and smoke it Alicia Keys! I love London!
We are well located for touring the city and as stated below we have our own local attractions but most of the cities great and most famous attractions are easy to get to from here. Buckingham Palace, The Tate Modern, The British, Natural History and Science Museums.
The Southbank and Barbican Arts Centre's, Soho, Trafalgar Square, Kew Gardens, Picadilly Circus, St Pauls Cathedral and the City of London itself. Tube and Bus Services are excellent and bus stops with services running 24hrs a day are a short walk 50 and 150m's depending on the bus. So just come! What are you waiting for?
Central London/Zone 1
There are many things to see and do in the local area. The emirates stadium home to Arsenal FC is within walking distance and offers tours and a large shop of memorabilia. Camden Market is also a short bus ride away (ten minutes) as are London Zoo and Regents Park.
There are also two local parks of significance though Highbury Fields, where some of houses facing the park appeared in the film Notting Hill and has tennis courts. Finsbury Park also has tennis courts, a running track and also offers boating. They both have good adventure playgrounds which are free of charge. There is also a swimming pool by Highbury Fields.
The Highgate Area offers a range of quirky cafe's and restaurants catering for the areas artistic and intellectual residents (many actors, lecturers and retired civil servants live here) the area is also home to another charming Park called Waterlow which used to belong to one man not long ago which is hard to believe when you go there because it's not small!
Highgate is also where George Michael (the popstar in case you don't know) crashed his car while under the influence of a herbal cigarette and was sent to a local not so glam prison.
The park is next to the Highgate Cemetary which also offers tours due to its famous residents including Karl Marx whose grave has a huge bust of him. There are many sirs and Professors buried here as well as a number of other historical figures so worth checking out.
Hamstead is also nearby (short bus ride), an uber fashionable area where many famous international names live the park is really beautiful at all times of year and there are many pubs and cafes to visit afterwards to soak up the atmosphere. In the other direction is Hoxton and Shoreditch areas which are currently the most popular places for Londoners to go clubbing and drinking (the west end is more the preserve of out of towners and tourists in my humble opinion) if it's your thing then you should visit on the weekend. There are also excellent restaurants in the area it's very trendy what camden used to be before it became a tourist destination.

"Faultless, perfect accommodation and very helpful owner"
We chose Springfield in a rush after being letdown by another owner at last minute, but I'm sure she did us a favour in the end as Springfield and Michael live up to their great reviews and more. As we were keen to find somewhere quickly our choice was based on trip advisor reviews,and we were not disappointed. The flat is beautifully furnished and very spacious (for myself, hubby and teenage son) with all you need for an oasis of calm in a hectic city! The quality of linen, duvets and towels is far better than hotels we have stayed in and the flat was comfortably warm with plenty of hot water.
Not knowing the area it was even better to discover how quick and easy it was to get into town from Holloway Rd on Picadilly line, yet once inside the flat the city could have been miles away as it was so peaceful.

I was in London for a week at the end of august with my husband and child. We all liked this flat, as it was very nice, clean, comfortable, next to tube station and shops. It is on the first floor, while Michael's mum lives downstairs, where he was waiting for us. The house is in a beautiful quarter, near the Arsenal Stadium and the Piccadily Line, so we could easily reach each part of the town. Moreover, Michael has been very kind. Just one suggestion: to remove or fix better the curtain shower in the bathroom; sometimes it has fallen down! However, our jorney was so lovely. So we'll surely recommend this flat to our friends!

"A beautiful apartment in an ideal location."
I'd recommend Springfield to anyone.
It is beautiful, in an ideal location, unlimited wifi and has parking if required. Five minutes walk to the underground, so London is your Oyster (pun intended).
Michael and his family were really helpful and made us feel at home.
Our stay in London was enhanced by this accommodation.

Stayed with my wife and adult son at the flat and there was plenty of room.
It was clean, tidy and described as advert. It was only 5 minutes walk to tube station with 2 stops to Kings X. Good Wetherspoons pub for food at the end of the road.
Overall, a great flat and location.

"Lovely flat, beautiful stay"
We had a great time in this comfortable, quite and well located flat which you can easily reach from every airport. The owner is very friendly and helpful, you can contact him by email every time. Good food stores and bus stops are just around the corner, the tube station is only 5 minutes walk away.
We will be back for sure! I recommend it for everybody!

"Great place to stay, close to public transit"
to quote the other rewviewers "Just Book It" you won't be dissapointed.
Michael mets us at the apartment when we arrived & even carried our bags upstairs. Apartment is huge by london standards, area seemed to be good, had a Waitrose 1 block away, bus stop 1 min away, tube station (Holloway Road) 5 min walk. Holloway Road is on the Piccadilly Line so if you arrive by Heathrow you can take the tube with no changes, we arrived by Gatwick so this was out for us.
Had a small problem with the fridge the second day, Michael responded to my email within 10 min & solved the problem. Works way better when turned on :)
All in all I don't have any complaint's about the property or Michael, it was more that we expected & I don't have any reservations reccomending it to anyone

"Just book it!"
What a gem. My husband and I decided to do a long weekend in London and this flat was perfect for our needs. We flew into Standsted and it took us less than an hour to get to the flat- surprisingly easy too. Michael (manages the property for his mum) was extremely accommodating and let us check-in early and showed us round the flat. He even brought a new set of cooking utensils and flatwear for us. Immediately walking in the flat you get that 'wow' factor- the furnishing looks new, all of a high standard, the bedding immaculate and inviting, and giant flat-screen TV. The bedroom is huge and the tall ceilings and dual aspect windows make the whole place feel light and airy, and bigger than it is. In short, I wish this was my flat!
The location was great too-2 min walk to the Halloway Road tube stop. Being in Zone 2 this made it more affordable to get around with just getting a day pass. A really short bus ride takes you to Camden Market, not at all complicated to get to even for someone like me who has never been to London. The best Waitrose supermarket is a minute away. Also should mention that Michael thoughtfully provided us with basic things you usually would have to bring yourself to holiday lets- like loo roll, washing up liquid, spounge, coffee and salt. Payment was easy he let us pay a portion to book, and then we just paid the remaining and the security in cash, which was returned to us on our departure day. We're also really greatful he accommodated are very late check-out (6pm) so we would not have to lug all our belongings around town before catching our late night flight.
In short- I have absolutely no criticism other than the water pressure and temperature is not great in the shower. But who cares when everything else is perfect! Just book it- you won't be disappointed.
