Harringay in North London has been our home for 6 months. We actually stumbled upon it as somewhere we'd like to live during a house exchange!
We wanted somewhere with energy, but also that was full of families, independent shops and great transport links, within London and beyond.
We found it here: from our Turkish restaurants - one of which was recently named #2 in London on Trip Advisor - to our arty coffee shops, 24 hour fruit and vegetable shops, and Finsbury Park (which only on moving here did I realise is actually a park, not just a tube station!); it's a lovely place to call home.
Our flat is a Victorian, ground floor conversion, with two bedrooms and a lovely garden on a quiet street with residents parking.
We have a low maintenance and personable cat; a significant element of our wish to exchange is to know that she can be happy at home in our absence.
We have now successfully completed our sixth exchange, and would be particularly interested in a longer (3 to six week) swap - in January 2014 - to somewhere outside the UK.
