Harringay in North London (nearest tube: Manor House) has been our home for a year. We actually stumbled upon it as somewhere we'd like to live during a home stay!
We wanted somewhere with energy, but also that was full of families, independent shops and great transport links, within London and beyond.
We found it here: from the Turkish restaurants - one of which was recently named #2 in London on Trip Advisor - to arty coffee shops, 24 hour fruit and vegetable shops, and Finsbury Park (which only on moving here did I realise is actually a park, not just a tube station!); it's a lovely place to call home.
Our flat is a Victorian, ground floor conversion, with a lovely garden on a quiet street with residents parking.
One of the double bedrooms is South facing, with Victorian ceilings. It has plenty of storage in the form of drawers and double glazing; so is airy, bright and calm.
The second double is smaller, but with the same high ceilings, a king sized bed, and view onto the garden.
The kitchen has a gas hob, and oven, and fridge freezer for your use; and the bathroom has a shower and bath.
All bed linens and towels are included in your stay.
The area is known as having 'the best transport links outside of zone 1', with Manor House on the Piccadilly line being our local tube station (15 minutes walk), Harringay Green Lanes on the overground which can connect you with Kew Gardens and South London, Harringay National Rail and three bus routes (two of which are 24 hour routes) which take you as far afield as London Bridge, Trafalgar Square and Brick Lane, as well as excellent car and rail routes North into the countryside of Hertfordshire.

As a final note, we do have a cat - who will not be in residence during your stay - but who, if you have allergies, you might want to bear in mind...!
Welcoming, cozy, positioned in a nice quiet street but not too far from all the action and restaurants. Clean comfortable beds, great TV - will book again. Thank you Carl and Caroline - great hosts!
Fab flat, everything you would need, felt very homely and safe. Great transport connections too! Had great and speedy communications with Caroline. Lovely people.
This flat is absolutely gorgeous! It has beautiful furniture and decoration. It is small, but you find everything you might need. The hosts are very helpful and communicative. Some things didn't work properly, as in every household, but we felt very comfortable. The location is just perfect, close to Metro and Bus stations, lots of shops and restaurants just down the street. Even though we were a group of five people, we could easily fit in this flat (2 bedrooms and couch).
Excellent location. funky, friendly and clean place. Would highly recommend!
