In a secluded secret garden, this outstandingly elegant garden house has all you could desire for a London holiday. Free fibre-optic wifi 160 mbps. Washer-dryer. This small flat is completely private and self contained. It is however attached to a studio which my daughter and I use occasionally as an art studio.
Check in is normally from 3.30 pm and check out by 11.00am. You can arrive, by arrangement, from midday to leave your bags or sit in the garden whilst the cleaner prepares the apartment.
Close to the centre and transport links. A wonderfully romantic location for a holiday.
The bedroom is spacious enough to include a sofa, all overlooking the tranquillity of the garden and pond. The kitchen is filled with unusual details, and includes a dining area to seat five.
The paved area by the pond has exclusive use, but the main grassed area is shared with the main house, although it is very rare for anyone to use it. The lower floor of the main house has it's own private patio area, screened by plants from your view. This flat shares the access through the garden door. The small flat is very luxurious, with a high quality king sized bed (US queen size, 5 foot wide), and charming antique furniture.
We are only 4 or 5 minutes walk from the Caledonian Road tube on the Piccadilly line. This is by far the most convenient underground line for access to the major museums and galleries of London and a direct line to Heathrow Airport (one hour). Here's a little chart: 2 stops to Russell square: British Museum.
4 stops to Covent Garden: National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Somerset House (Courtauld Gallery), Sir John Soane Museum, Theatre area. 6 stops to Piccadilly Circus: Royal Academy. Shopping in Bond Street etc.. 7 stops to Green Park: Spencer House, Princess Diana's family's 18th c House (quite amazing, only open Sunday afternoons, so book in advance). The Ritz hotel for tea, and across Green Park to Buckingham Palace. 10 stops to South Kensington: V&A, Science, and Natural History Museum. Hyde park. However for Tate Modern, or Britain, you have to change lines. It takes about 2 minutes per stop. There's also a bus stop 200 metres from the flat. There are many local restaurants, and bars. The nearest is Shillibeers, about 200 metres away, and great for informal eating, drinking and dancing.
Here is a quote from a review posted a few years ago when the property was last used as a holiday location: “A Country idyll in London - near perfect.” 'What a great place- I can't recommend enough! We could hardly bear to leave. We booked Hartham Road for a birthday weekend for my partner. We had wanted to take a cottage in the country but one of our friends had to be in London so we thought we would try and find a piece of the country in London. So what a bit of luck to find an an extraordinary artists studio converted, by a labour of love, into a cottage built in a C-Shape around a delightful Arcadian garden [complete with pond, folly and sculpture]. The house has a wonderful cosy back bedroom, clean and well appointed bathroom, an eat in kitchen [with great china] and a lovely window seat . It is also incredibly peaceful. Sat in the studio or garden you would have no clue you were five minutes from Caledonian Road Tube. It would be the ideal balm to a day seeing the sites in London G and T's on the terrace, cosy dinner in the kitchen and drift away in the bedroom. It is one of those places so good you only want to recommend to your really good friends - so shh- don't tell anyone unless they are really special.'

We loved staying at this charming garden bungalow. We appreciated all the artistic touches. It really felt like a special place. The bed was comfortable & the place was clean. The garden was so sweet & well maintained. The location is just a short walk from the tube. The immediate neighborhood is mostly residential so it’s quiet. However it is accessible to the action. I would definitely highly recommend this place to anyone staying in London.

Had a most wonderful time!

Even better than I had imagined, this apartment is full of charm. From the beautiful plants in the bathroom to the cozy window seat in the kitchen, it was everything I was looking for as a base for my trip to London. Each room was decorated beautifully, and had exactly the eclectic, warm ambience I was hoping for, combined with the lovely garden and a few appearances from the neighbor's adorable and friendly little dog it truly felt like a home away from home. It was also nice to be in a quiet neighborhood without all of the hustle and bustle of central London, while still being conveniently placed a short walk from the tube station and only a 25 min ride from all of London's popular attractions. The check in instructions were very detailed and easy to follow, I had no problem at all accessing the apartment, even with having to do it in the dark. I was also provided with a very helpful, and detailed information binder as well that included everything I needed to know about the apartment, as well as helpful information about the area. Overall, I think you would be hard pressed to find a more pleasant place to stay on a trip to London, it exceeded all of my expectations, and I was so sad to leave.
MAGICAL OASIS IN LONDON
By Eric C. on 12-Jun-2017
We spent a week at this lovely apartment that is full of antiques and original artwork. The garden is beautiful, full of flowers, trellised roses, a fountain, and interesting architectural artifacts. We found returning to the property so refreshing after a day full of sightseeing! We had dinner and drinks at the nearby pub one night. The neighborhood is quiet and mostly residential but there were lots more dining options within one or two tube stops in either direction. The tube station is only a 5 minute walk away, on the Piccadilly line, so very convenient to get to most of London's sites. We really enjoyed our stay here!

I can't say enough about this place. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood with a private garden and the fluffiest down bed you'll ever sleep on. It's a bright, cheerful spot that we enjoyed every moment of. Better yet is it's proximity to the Underground, so getting anywhere is easy. You won't be disappointed.
A Gem Of A Find.

I stumbled on this amazing property by chance for my partners 60th birthday weekend and was not disappointed.Andy made the whole booking process easy and the directions couldn't have been simpler with very easy access to the Caledonian tube station.Everything was as described and the garden was romantic and peaceful.The property was clean and well maintained with very good WIFI! Andy was always at the end of the phone if we needed him and when we arrived he was there to greet us and offer us a cup of tea!We loved this place and will be returning, as there was so much of London we didn't manage to do and this is the perfect base for you to do it from.Thank you Andy and see you next year .Rowena Moore
We LOVE This Beautiful Place And The Artist Owners Who Made It Perfect!
By Cio H. on 09-Oct-2016
The owners have made a perfect relaxing retreat for visitors of all ages. They left a bouquet of roses to welcome us with fruit and wine in the fridge. They didn't even know we had just gotten engaged and were overjoyed to celebrate.
We came in very late, which wasn't a problem at all. They even welcomed us the next morning and shared some of their art!
The garden is immaculate and serene. We want out to have tea in the pm only to be serenaded by the neighbor who is a blues musician. LOVED it!
Everything about this place is charming, romantic, inspiring, and lovely!
We call this our teaser trip because it was so short. Now we are looking forward to going back and booking this place again!
Delightful, Tranquil Garden Apartment That We Didn't Want To Leave!
By Peter M. on 08-Aug-2016
This amazing garden apartment was the highlight of our stay in London. It was our first visit to London and it was difficult to go out sightseeing because we felt so relaxed and very comfortable. The apartment is delightful and just as the photos show on the website.
When we did eventually drag ourselves out, it was very easy to get around as the Caledonian underground station is a 6 minute walk away. The apartment facilities are great and it has a lovely little kitchen which we used every day. The supermarket is close by if you enjoy cooking fresh food as we do. There are also some great restaurants nearby and a great Thai restaurant that delivers free of charge.
The owner is a friendly gentleman and a very good artist and evidence of his artwork is all around the apartment and garden, giving the apartment a personal and unique feel.
We highly recommend this adorable property and if we are ever in London again we will definitely be returning to this apartment. Peter and Catherine, Australia
This Is One Of The Most Charming Places I Have Ever Been. I Loved Staying There And Will Return.
By Mary D. on 16-Mar-2016
Everything about this charming little flat worked out perfectly for me. The location is ideal being so close to the Caledonian Street Underground station - which is just three or four stops from Central London and truly an easy walk at pretty much any time of day or night. The entrance through the garden gate is just fun! Upon entering you feel like you've stepped into a secret garden and I was there in March! Once everything is in bloom, it will be even more delightful. The flat was immaculate and is filled with fascinating bits of art and all the creature comforts. The bed truly is very comfortable, the Wi-fi and TV function very well, the bathroom is spacious and the kitchen very efficient. Every detail has been attended to down to the fresh flowers and a welcoming bottle of wine. Frankly, it's the sort of place I'd like to keep to myself! I will return very soon. Andrew the owner was very helpful and attentive to all my inquiries and made sure he or his daughter was accessible for anything that may have come up during my stay. Enjoy!!
