The cabin sleeps 2 people. There are twin divan beds, for separate sleeping. These are specifically designed to convert into a large, very comfortable DOUBLE BED if that's what you prefer. The cabin is safe, secure, independently accessed, so you're free to come and go as you please. With its own private terrace and woodland, it combines tranquillity with urban access. Bustling Stoke Newington Church Street, renowned for its great restaurants, cafes & bars, is a short walk away, as is the wedding venue at Stoke Newington Town Hall. Clissold Park and Woodbury Wetlands nature reserve are nearby, too. Good transport links; off street parking, a beautiful modern kitchenette with fridge and combi microwave/oven/steamer; charcoal BBQ; underfloor heating if needed: the cabin has everything you could need for a perfect stay in central London. And if you're a musician (which I am!) there's even a guitar in the cabin which you're free to use.Guest Access
Terrace with outdoor seating. Private woodland. A fully equipped cabin.Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as the guests want. Sian and I live in the main house with our son Titus. We tend to be in most evenings and weekends, in the main house at the other end of the garden. We're friendly and welcoming but equally happy to respect guests' privacy.The Neighborhood
Stoke Newington (known as 'Stokey' by the locals) is a vibrant & unusual part of London. It's packed with independent shops, restaurants, pubs and bars, live music, and has quite a young vibe. It's incredibly cosmopolitan, with residents and visitors from all walks of life. And there's a strong community too. There are several churches; a fabulous nature reserve; a historically fascinating cemetery-nature reserve; a history of political dissent, and it's home to a number of celebrities. We've lived here since 1988 and we love it!Getting Around
It's just a 3 minute walk to buses that will take you into the heart of London. Or a 10 minute walk to Manor House tube station (Zone 2). And the 106 bus (very close to our house) will take you either to Stoke Newington Overground station if you go east, (for the 'City' - London's famous financial district) or Finsbury Park station in the other direction, which has the Victoria and Piccadilly lines and gets you to Oxford Street in about 12 mins. Like any other visitor, you'll probably want to buy an Oyster Card which gives access to buses and underground trains. You can do so at a shop at the end of our road. And if you hire a car or use 'car club' vehicles, we have free off street parking. And you can easily get an Uber from outside the house.Other Things to Note
Laundry - for longer stay visitors, use of our washing machine and dryer can be arranged. We also have a very good relationship with our local dry cleaner, who is very accommodating and efficient and can also do emergency alterations and button sewing. There's also a sewing kit in the cabin!
