For a cooler and quieter vibe to East London, Clapton is one of the more under-the-radar areas. Among hip cafés, artist’s studios, and dimly-lit cocktail bars, this converted warehouse fits right in with the local vibe. We love the architecture and design features – incredibly modern decor, enormous windows, open-plan living spaces, a mezzanine bedroom, glass partitions, and skylights. It feels as if it’s made for creativity, socialising, and entertaining. The mix of pop art, collages, and photographs in vivid colors dress the stark white walls beautifully. And with collections of trinkets like the lucky cats and cartoon figurines, you'll keep finding little features to pique your interest. A complimentary bottle of wine and snacks will be waiting for you, which will be perfect for gathering around the pool table, by the electric piano, or relaxing on the oversized stiletto chair (yes, you read that right). Fifteen minutes away you’ve got Lee Valley Park – a vast countryside space that stretches all the way out to Essex and Hertfordshire. As this home is fully pet-friendly, this place is a dog walker's dream. Or in the other direction, the overground is a seven-minute walk, taking you to Liverpool Street in just twenty minutes.
Home truths: *This is a pet-friendly home, so people with severe allergies might want to take note that animals have been here
*The flat's on the first floor, so you'll have to climb a flight of stairs to reach it
*While there is a parking spot, it's not always available – you can ask your host beforehand
*The upstairs area is all one space, without any privacy between the beds
*Your host can provide a high chair or a cot, you just need to request it in advance
