Located on a private riverside complex in the newly renovated Surrey Quays area of London. The area has a residential suburban feel, with parks and waterways close by, but is within is easy access to the hustle and bustle of London town centre.

The studio itself offers a well equipped home away from home, ideal for 2 adults. A great alternative to hotel accommodation, it combines the privacy of being in a gated complex, with all the mod cons of home living, and a rare private outside space in the form of a large terrace with views of the river. The studio offers bathroom, dressing room, full-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and lounge/bedroom area providing access to the private terrace. On site there is also a heated indoor pool, sauna, jacuzzi and private garage.

Located on the Thames pathway, a gentle 30 min stroll along the river takes you to the world famous Tower Bridge, Design Museum and HMS Belfast and access to all the tourist attractions that London has to offer.

Just a 10 minute walk to the nearest station giving quick access to the London underground train network. Buses also stop both outside and at the end of the road servicing the key mainline stations of London Bridge, Victoria and Waterloo. If you like the river life, a 10 min walk to the local river taxi will give you a river view of London, East towards Greenwich and West towards Tower Bridge, The London Eye, Southbank and the Houses of parliament.

Locally there are several restaurants and take-aways within 5 mins of the studio, including the world Famous Mayflower pub from where the Pilgrim Fathers set sail. There are also a number of local attractions.

For those on business the City and Canary Wharf are both easily accessible by river taxi or tube, as is the Excel Exhibition Centre at Docklands and the O2 Arena for concerts and entertainment.

The London region

The South East of England, as well as being the home of the capital city, has a diverse range of cultural and historial places of interest be it Kew Gardens, Windsor or Leeds Castles, all that the river Thames has to offer, including Henley and the beautiful counties of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. Kent, the Garden of England and Sussex offer beautiful beaches as well as chocolate box villages and rolling countryside.

There is so much to do you'll need to stay a month!

Central London/Zone 2

Rotherhithe is on the South side of the river Thames in the East of London. Part of the former dock areas the old warehouses and docks have now been developed into quality riverside apartment complexes and tranquil waterways with footpaths.

Despite being in Zone 2 of the central London underground, the area retains a suburban feel and peaceful environment yet is just a short hop into the hustle and bustle of all that London town has to offer. Locally there are a wide variety of restaurants, takeways and traditional riverside pubs, including the Mayflower, from where the Pilgrim fathers set sail for America. There is also the Brunel museum and Sand Studios, that has a huge photographic history of London and everything.

You can also stroll along the Thames pathway to Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, HMS Belfast and the Design Museum. In the other direction by River taxi is Greenwich, the home of time and the beautiful naval college and park as well as the Excel centre and O2 area where there are exhibitions, shows and concerts throughout the year.

Keep an eye out for the London Marathon that runs past the end of the road and the Redbull Air Race over the Thames.

"Compact, but with everything you need"

As advertised this "tranquil riverside gite" lived up to its claim. It is compact but the space is adequate to allow for all needs. We found it to be quiet, clean and comfortable with a full… More

Thank you for your review. Just to clarify for other potential renters, the dryer on the washer dryer has been disabled as it creates too much condensation in the small space of the flat, but as Mrs Bice mentioned there is a laundrette just across the road or air dryers in the property. I am delighted that your stay at our little gem gave you the perfect end to your honeymoon. Every happiness for the future.

"Clean, comfortable apartment in quiet new area next to the Thames."

Apartment was spacious and well laid out. Very good for 2 people. The area of Surrey Quays is a leafy quiet area next to the Thames. So it was nice to return to the apartment each day after the hectic pace in central London. Apartment is easily accessible to underground so commuting to city centre is quick and hassle free. Communication with Laura was ok. The fact that she lives in another country did have its small problems but overall communication was fine. Once we made contact with the Porter at the premises everything went smoothly.
We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Laura for a wonderful London experience.

"great holidays !"

We spent 1 full week at the appartment, visiting london and more.
The flat was perfect, as described, so no bad surprise, clean, spacious enough for 2 people, very great bedding.
Rotherhithe is a very safe area, close to bus, tube and thames path (we could see the river from the terrace !)
Due the the flat was empty the day before our arrival, we got the key in the morning (for free !) and we really appreciated this.
It really worth the price compared to hotel or older noisy flats, we were free to arrange our time as we wanted to and should we arrived tired every afternoon/evening, the great bedding made us having great nights.
So a big thank to the owner (Laura) and of course if time (and money) permit, we'll come back soon !
