Stay in a beautiful old Shoe Factory, between London Fields and Victoria Park, a stone's throw from Broadway Market and Regent's Canal. As the sun streams through huge warehouse windows, sip your coffee sitting on 100-year old floorboards...
You'll have the whole place to yourself!
Over 1,070 square feet of beautiful warehouse loft in a converted Shoe Factory.
Huge original windows facing west, for light all afternoon, and gabled skylights for natural top light all day.
Two huge original zinc loading doors , and London-brick walls remind of the building’s original use, and many other architectural and industrial features remain.
100 year old hardwood flooring, architect-designed handbuilt staircase, reclaimed iron purpose-built gallery, antique piano, and antique and reclaimed furniture throughout.
Hand-built kitchen with sunny window sills, Smeg fridge and Belfast sink. There is a beautiful solid cast iron 3-ring gas burner, and a classic '60s Baby Belling small oven. Perfect for a couple, although we have had Christmas dinner for 6!
Huge four-seater sofa, which is very comfortable for movie nights on the projector screen with surround sound Home Cinema System!
London Fields park is one minute away, with Tennis courts, basketball courts, cricket pitch, Lido for swimming and plenty of trees to barbecue under.
The famous Broadway Market is a 2 minute walk, hosting London’s best food and farmer’s market every Saturday. Another farmer’s market and Netil market are in the next door school’s playground and the carpark of Netil House respectively, both also on Saturdays…
The E5 bakery is next to London Fields station (2 mins) and bakes fresh bread everyday, with an in house pizzaiolo in residence on Sundays.
Walk to the canal (2 minutes) and head east for Victoria Park and the Olympic Village, or west for a beautiful towpath walk all the way to Paddington, via Islington and Camden along the water.

Try the Kenton Arms on Kenton Road for a drink before or after. Ombra on Vyner St does great cichetti, (Venetian tapas) and the bar at the Town Hall hotel is nice, as is their Corner Bistro restaurant. For a good pub with real ale, a beer garden and homemade British bar snacks, try the Spurstowe Arms or the Scolt Head…

You are very welcome to have guests around but again we ask that you are always mindful of noise levels, particularly from 10pm onward and that you keep guest numbers to a MAX of 6 people- the flat is not to be used as an event space in any way.
Other than that, we hope you feel very much at home in this wonderful space and that you enjoy your stay!
I couldn't live without my bicycle, books and my passport! I love travelling, eating, soaking up new cultures, reading and learning new languages. I also love working with animals and spending time near the ocean. My motto in life is 'drop the rock' although I am far better at preaching this than using it myself. Its important to me that my guests feel at home from the moment they walk in the door so I would always make sure they are welcomed by something personal and local from the bakery or deli.
