About our home

**SCHOOL HOLIDAYS ONLY. LOOKING FOR EASTER/SUMMER 2018**
A newly refurbished house with many original features, this is the perfect location for a family wishing to explore London and beyond. A spacious property, 5 mins from the local high street and transport links, which would suit families and couples alike.
Located over 3 floors, we have 2 Double Bedrooms, a Single Bedroom and a Single Kids Room (can accommodate extra people on blow up mattress or single futon. There is a full bathroom on the 1st floor and a shower/toilet on the 2nd floor. The ground floor has open plan living/dining room, a kitchen and utility room. The kitchen opens out to a spacious garden (well - spacious for London!) with grass, patio and a large pond (we have a number of carp and 2 very friendly terrapins who will take food from your hand!). We have Wi-Fi, Virgin TV (including Netflix), BBQ, dishwasher and kids games/toys.

We are located in the heart of east London within a few minutes walking distance to St James St Station (overground) - 18 mins into Liverpool St or 15-min walk to Blackhorse Road station on the Victoria line - 15 mins into Kings Cross. This operates a 24hr night tube service on Friday and Saturdays.

London has so many iconic sights but here are a few of our very own local ones:

Walthamstow village where you'll find rows of 16th-century alms houses with floral front gardens leading up to the 12th-century St Mary's Parish church and cemetery. Opposite here is a very old wood-beamed 15th-century house marking the corner of Orford road. This road is the artery of the village, lined with chi-chi eateries and little boutiques and vintage shops. Go for a drink or a meal at Eat 17 (28-30 Orford Road, London E179NJ), which is run by the same people who own the Spar next door that sells red velvet cupcakes and stone-baked pizza. The restaurant has become the hub of the neighbourhood, serving locally sourced ingredients. It's also the place where the famous Walthamstow bacon jam was created.

Walthamstow Street Market – the longest street market in Europe selling loads of fruit and veg as well as clothes, bags and well pretty much anything you’d expect to find at a street market. Lots of stalls selling food/snacks from all over the world.

Walthamstow marshes (Lee Valley Regional Park)-a natural treasure and one of London's few remaining river valley grasslands. Saved from development to protect rare plant species, it’s heaven for wildlife to escape the town without the hassle of going to country. You can forage, walk and cycle there. Nearby Waterworks Centre with golf, café and nature reserve, plus an ice rink, horse-riding, fishing, rowing and kayaking...

Ravenswood Industrial Estate, is the new, very funky spot, home to Wildcard Brewery, a micro brewery where one can sit amongst the huge vats and drink beer that tastes like liquid bitter chocolate and other unusual ales. Opposite is Mother’s Ruin. Award winning liqueurs made locally with fruit of the highest quality and much of it is home grown or foraged from in and around East London. Fab Cocktails! God's Own Junkyard is famous for neon signs seen in film, television, pop band stages, has a bar/cafe. Literally, a sight for sore eyes!

Alexandra Place - The iconic north London palace offers boating, ice skating and events galore with the benefit of some of the best panoramic views of London.

Stratford Westfield - one of the biggest shopping malls in the UK, right next to the Olympic Park

There are a number of places nearby where your kids can join summer programmes to practice English.
