Lovely canal side apartment with balcony - Central London (open to offers during school holidays)

This is a spacious and modern apartment on the fourth floor of a newly built property. We`re located in the heart of Islington and Hackney. We`re on the south side of the Regents canal in Angel. Expect to be woken by geese having their morning flyby rather than traffic!

You will be in a peaceful and safe part of the city but very close to all of the local attractions in this fantastic part of central London.

The flat has three bedrooms - 2 doubles (with double and king sized beds) and 1 childrens room with two single bunk beds. We will use one of these rooms (depending on your choice) for storing our stuff, and getting it out of your way, so please let us know your requirements. We have a good sized living / dining room and a small but well equipped galley kitchen. There are two bathrooms - the main bathroom has a bath and shower and the second bathroom is en-suite, attached to the second bedroom and has a large shower.

The flat is well equipped, comfortable, warm, clean and tidy and has wood flooring throughout. It faces onto the central courtyard of Angel Wharf on one side and Holborn Studios (a famous photographic studio) on the other - both sides are quiet day and night. We have a small balcony that overlooks the courtyard, it gets great sunshine in the afternoons and has views of the canal.

About the location

We`re tucked away in a peaceful spot by the canal - its a magical, special place in otherwise busy London.

You`ll be minutes from all the attractions of Islington and Hackney. Upper street is very close for cafe`s, restaurants, theatres, galleries, pubs and shops. Essex Road even closer where you can find a great fishmongers, butchers, and bakers, bars and restaurants. Essex road is also renowned for its agglomeration of hairdressers!

Exmouth Market, Sadlers wells (ballet) and the Barbican (famous art centre) are close and its a short cycle along the canal towpath to Broadway Market, and the lovely Victoria Park. There are lots of attractions on teh canal itself including some great places to eat and drink.

We`re about 10 minutes walk to Angel tube station and Old Street. Buses on New North Road and Essex Road go to lots of popular places in Central London. You can also get to the heart of the City (St Paul`s cathedral, the South Bank, West End) very easily and quickly by public transport, taxi or bike. There are pay as you go city bikes available right outside the flat if you want to try biking the city.

We know London well and are happy to advise on good places to visit, local attractions, travel, and anything else we can help with.
