The South East England region
The Tower of London, The London Eye, Buckingham Palace, West End theatres and Thames river cruises are just a few of the attractions in London, but we can suggest many more to add to your ‘must do’ list. Cambridge with its famous University and buildings is just an hour away and there are many beautiful villages in the stunning countryside of Hertfordshire and Essex. If you choose to drive a little further, then Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and South coast of England are all within easy access from this central location. You might even decide on a day trip to France by Eurostar!
Enfield has a long and rich history, with many interesting and attractive listed buildings. There are six golf courses nearby while garden enthusiast can enjoy Capel Manor, Myddelton House, the Crews Hill Garden Centres or a trip to Kew Gardens. The picturesque old towns of Waltham Abbey, Ware and Hertford are well worth a visit, but central London is only a 20 minute train ride away. Enfield has a good variety of restaurants and cafes and the Enfield Market, which is held in the Town every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, celebrated 700 years of trading in 2004.

"Great place, family-friendly, warm & clean, to be recommended!"
Very nice place, great for families but also for couples. Place was clean, warm, with all amenities required: felt like "home away from home"!
Brenda was extremely helpful, always available to help and provide information, tips, assistance.
Tyto Alba was just 8 minutes walk from the train station, and close to restaurants, mini-markets and other facilities. It is a very quiet and safe neighborhood.
To be recommended!

"Well appointed, resonably priced. Very accomodating and helpful owner."
The owner (Brenda) was quick to reply with a quote, despite our booking including two children under five (the property is listed as suitable for children five and over). We were offered use of a travel cot, an inflatable mattress and bedding suitable for both children. Despite several changes to our arrival time within the twenty four hours prior to our first day of occupancy Brenda was very flexible, greeted us personally and introduced us to the apartment, where we found the fridge stocked with a welcome package of food and drinks. The apartment is recently renovated, with a deep, full sized bath, separate shower, with high flow head, microwave, washer/dryer, LCD TV and DVD player.

We stayed at Tyto Alba for the New Year's Eve to see the London's famous fireworks show. Our main concern was the distance to London, but this worked out really well for us.Transport to the center of London it is easy and takes about 30 minutes by train. The place is really cozy and has pretty much anything you would like. The owner, Brenda, was great and really helpful providing us will all the information we needed. Overall great quality for a reasonable price.

"Perfektes Basislager in London"
Wir verbrachten eine Woche im Tyto Alba. In der Unterkunft fehlte es an nichts; die Küche war voll eingerichtet, das Bad mit Dusche und Badewanne ausgestattet. Es gab ein Schlafzimmer, außerdem war das Wohnzimmer mit einer Schlafcouch ausgestattet. Die nächste Bahnstation ist etwa zehn Minuten zu Fuß entfernt; die meisten Ziele in London erreicht man innerhalb maximal einer Stunde. Fußläufig befinden sich mehrere kleinere Lebensmittelgeschäfte mit langen Öffnungszeiten, in denen man alles Notwendige erwerben kann. Die Gastgeber sind sehr bemüht und jederzeit für alle Fragen ansprechbar.
Einziger Nachteil: Leider sehr hellhörig in bezug auf die darüber gelegene Ferienwohnung.
Thank you so much for your feedback, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us.

"High standards, Great Service at a reasonable price"
The apartment may look ordinary on the outside but inside its a great conversion offering real comfort. The lounge is cozy offering good TV facilities and a sofa bed. The kitchen is large with dining table and i very well fitted and equipped with everything you could need. We even put a cot in there!
The bedroom is large, comfortable well furnished with plenty of staorage space.
This leads to a large luxury bathroom with deep bath and walk in shower.
Finally outside is garden with lawn and terrace.
The location is quiet and residential, but shops, pubs and restaurants are close by. Enfield itself is a nice suburb and access to London by car or train is quite easy within. Brenda is attentive to detail and caring. We would recommend and will return in future.

"Fantastic accommodation, outstanding service"
We stayed at Tyto Alba for two and a half weeks over Easter with our 3 year old. The accommodation was truly a highlight of our holiday. It was a warm, snug, impeccably clean and comfortable 'home' to return to after taking in the sites and sounds of London. The owner Brenda's professionalism, attention to detail, kindness and thoughtfulness are second to none. She went out of her way to make our stay hassle free, even giving us lifts to pick up and return our hire car, and the Easter eggs she left for us were a real treat.
The modern accommodation is well located in a quiet residential street with easy access to public transport and motorways. It is a short walking distance to a gorgeous park and also to a high street which includes a well stocked budgens for all catering requirements and lovely fish and chip shop. Many charming pubs are located nearby.
Having travelled extensively and stayed in many different accommodations in the UK and Europe, this was definitely the highest standard of service, cleanliness, comfort and value for money we have experienced.
We would definitely recommend staying at Tyto Alba, or Tyto Nova upstairs (which Brenda gave us a tour of when it was vacant, and is equally modern, well equipped and inviting). We will definitely return when next in London.
Thanks Brenda and Tyto Alba for a wonderful London holiday!

Tyto Alba was just a perfect place to stay. It has all the comforts that you might need and more. The property was incredibly clean throughout and the owners were very friendly and helpful. This is really a luxurious 1 bed flat, no doubt about it.
We stayed for 8 nights and could not ask for anything else; the flat is so well equipped that we even hosted a couple of friends for dinner. We had a car and parking was very easy but you do not even need a car here as the train station is walking distance as are a few supermarkets and nice coffee shops.It took me 20 minutes to get to Finsbury Park.
On our last day Brenda showed us the upstairs flat, Tyto Novo and it was pretty much the same: light, clean and very well-equipped. Either flat is great; we were very lucky to find Tyto Alba available when we desperately needed some accommodation in North London.
