Listed August 2019
A new built 2 bed flat on the site of a Victorian workhouse in London's historic East End. Transport, parks, canal, pubs, shops, restaurants and traditional street market all within easy walking distance. The perfect base to explore London while experiencing a neighbourhood feel. You can been in the West End in less than 30 minutes but our neighbourhood is quiet and calm and has all the amenities you need, and there is plenty nearby to enjoy, too.
Comfortably sleeps two adults and up to three children, or four adults (five in a pinch as the sofa is long enough to stretch out on). Two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one en suite with shower, one full bathroom with tub and shower), open plan kitchen/diner/living room leading out to a private terrace which overlooks a quiet shared courtyard. In the main bedroom (with en suite) there is a king sized bed. In the other room there is a cot (which can be converted to a toddler bed) - we also have a double air mattress which sleeps two. We have a young son and the flat is equipped with everything to make travelling with a small one easy: high chair, spare buggy, books, toys, changing table, etc etc. Anything you need we don't have we can probably borrow from friends for your visit, to make travelling easier with less luggage. We have one bicycle with a child seat which you are welcome to use and you can rent more bicycles easily from the nearby city cycle hire. There is no parking, unfortunately, but you won't need a car at all in central London - in fact you will get by much more easily without one.
Ground floor flat, easy for strollers and suitcases!
We have one gorgeous cat who can stay with friends while we are away if you are not a cat person, but anyone with severe allergies should take note!

Bow is a lovely, traditional East End neighbourhood (not too gentrified) with great transport links and amenities. Directly south of us in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, an old cemetery now a nature reserve. Nearby is Mile End Park, leading onto Regent's Canal, which travels up to Hackney and down to Limehouse Marina and Canary Wharf. Ten minute's walk away is Roman Road, home to a traditional East End street market, as well as lots of independent shops, bars, and restaurants. Victoria Park is fifteen minute's walk away. The entire neighbourhood is easily accessible by foot, bicycle, or bus.
We are three minutes walk from Mile End Underground station (Central, District, and Hammersmith and City lines) and one minute from bus stops and a cycle hire stand. Bow Church is DLR also nearby. TFL Zone 2 with easy and quick access to all of London.
Every London airport is easily accessible by public transport, with Stansted and City being the most convenient. St Pancras station is also just one tube ride away. We are happy to advise.
