Apt 208 The Magdalen
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Contemporary two bedroom apartment (sleeps six, maximum 4 adults), located in Earlsfield, South West London, including communal roof terrace with stunning views of London. Situated on a lovely tree-lined Victorian road, conveniently located close to Earlsfield train station (12 minutes to central London and one stop to Wimbledon Station). Earlsfield has a range of good bars, restaurants, coffee shops and supermarkets. For families of young children there is a fantastic playzone called It's a Kids Thing directly opposite the apartment. (www.itsakidsthing.co.uk)
Ideally situated for the Wimbledon Championships. For a small taxi fare you can get to the tennis in less than 10 mins. However, last year after the tennis, on a lovely summers evening we decided to walk back to Earlsfield via Wimbledon Park and up Penwith Rd which took us 30 mins. There is also a taxi office next door to the apartment block.
The very pretty Wandsworth Common is a short walk away offering great outdoor space, a couple of playgrounds and tennis courts. It also borders Bellevue Rd with its eclectic mix of shops as well as the highly regarded Chez Bruce restaurant.

The South East England region
The boroughs south of the river, including Wandsworth, are renowned for their green space. Close to the apartment you will find King George's Park. Laid out over 55 acres, the park boasts one of London's finest lakes in terms of sustainable water quality and providing a natural habitat for indigenous wildlife. The park is mainly open grassland and is popular in the summer for kicking a ball around, picnics, tennis or cycling. For the kids there is a children's playground. In the other direction towards Tooting you will find the smaller Garratt Park which also has a children's playground.
There are 3 leisure centres in the area including Tooting Leisure Centre which has a public swimming pool. Tooting Lido boasts the largest outdoor swimming pool in Europe.
Earlsfield library is located immediately next to the apartment.

Thank you for your review and suggestions regarding making 208 The Magdalen better. With regards to the second bedroom we will be changing the sleeping arrangements in there to two single beds from April as we have many families enquiring whose children don't necessarily want to sleep together. We will then supply a small wardrobe with hanging space as well as drawers or provide hooks at least. And happy to purchase toilet roll holders and soap holders to make life easier!

"Modern, clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated and extremely conveniently situated"
I spent a week with my young daughters (3 and 5yrs) at Magdalen apartments while on holiday in London in September. The apartment was perfect and catered to all our needs. It was clean, modern and extremely well presented. The management and staff were friendly, professional and welcoming during the booking process and on our arrival. The bedrooms were bright, reasonably sized with very comfortable beds. The open plan living room, dining area and kitchen were as expected - functional and comfortable. Perhaps the most striking feature of the apartment is its location - situated above a Sainsbury express and literally around the corner from Earlsfield station (about 100m for the front door!). The trip to London Waterloo station is quick (about 20mins with about 3 stops) with trains departing frequently. The Sainsbury shop below the apartment stays open to 11pm each night which is very convenient. Although in a relatively busy area, the apartment is quiet with adequate climate control. Didn't use the lovely rooftop area but would have if my daughters were a little older.
If I ever have to come to London again I will certainly try book into 208 Magdalen apartment.
Thank you for the kind review...we look forward to welcoming you and your daughters back to The Magdalen in the future!

"A last minute trip to London to see Mamma Mia and some of the sites....."
We needed accommodation last minute after finding so few hotels offering interconnecting rooms or suites that can accommodate 3 children. Is having 3 children that unusual? So after wasting an hour or so we looked at apartments and found No.208. The location was perfect for central London and being located right over a Sainsburys Local and literally next door to Earlsfield station was amazing - Waterloo in 15min door to door.
The apartment itself has an underground parking space which is a bonus. The rooms were all very clean and modern. The kitchen/living room area was great for our weekend and so much nicer than a hotel. Bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely and really like home from home. We will definitely be booking again as our children asked for the trip to be a yearly event. Also the communication from the owner and housekeeper were fantastic. We will not hesitate to recommend this apartment to all our friends.

"Great Place - Great Location!"
Travel to City and surrounding locations was very easy with the train station just next door. Grocery store just below apartment with a good choice of resturants with in easy walking distance - Carluccio's Italian - is a must go to. Apartment was very up to date, clean and had plenty of room. Shower's were awesome! Wi-Fi very nice amenity.

"Excellent location, great apartment"
This apartment is very well presented and in a great location, our family loved it. We traveled with 2 young children (3.5, 1.5). The eldest was delighted to have her own double room. There was space for the travel cot (provided at the property) to go in our room, but we found that it (just) fitted into the walk in shower.... by sacrificing one of the two showers we thus guaranteed we wouldn't be disturbed and could move around the flat more easily. The flat is well insulated so it was not a problem to move into the kitchen after the kids were asleep and watch TV without fear of waking them up. Another great thing about the location (if you have kids) is being directly opposite http://www.itsakidsthing.co.uk, very handy if one of us had both of the kids for a bit whilst the other did something else. Earlsfield station has lots of trains and a lift to/from station so again great for kids/prams. Kitchen has great facilities and a high chair - though for our youngest it was a little low compared to the breakfast bar (be prepared for cleaning the floor after each meal). The bar chairs are quite high but we had a portable high chair that meant we could clip the eldest into a chair without any dramas. Sainsbury's is right below the flat so you will never run out of anything either. Kids loved the roof terrace (if they like trains, then they will have great excitement watching as they go past). We probably won't be in London again for a year or two (we were visiting from Australia) but assuming we can convince the kids to share a double bed, we would definitely stay here again.
