Situated in leafy Greenwich, this charming flat is set away from the hustle and bustle. Cosy and welcoming, we loved everything about this home, from the exposed brick and beamed ceilings to the curated selection of books to flick through. With a huge TV, plenty of sumptuous seating, Sonos Bluetooth speakers and a well-stocked kitchen, this will feel like a true home-from-home. Pour yourself a glass of wine (your host leaves a bottle for you) and settle down for a meal around the dining table before kicking back with a movie in the living room. Then, nod off in the comfortable bed feeling completely relaxed. Greenwich Park – where you'll find sweeping views of London's skyline as well as the famous Royal Observatory – is right around the corner, and there are also plenty of cafes, gastropubs, shops, restaurants and nautical museums about a twenty-minute walk away in Greenwich Village. When you're ready to head into the city, Maze Hill station is a ten-minute walk and can get you into central London in less than twenty minutes or, for a more leisurely pace, climb aboard the Thames Clipper and enjoy a boat ride on the river, passing by some of London's most famous landmarks.
Home truths: *This flat is situated on the second floor of a converted house and doesn't have a lift – you may bump into neighbours in the shared hallway
*The bathroom layout is a little unusual as the toilet is in a separate room
*This is a lived-in home, so expect some general wear and tear – there will also be storage space and cupboards with the host's belongings
* The shower head is quite low in the bathroom (only 172cm)
* Parking on the street is potentially available via a permit at an additional charge – we suggest leaving the car behind and making use of London's excellent transport links
*This is a great option for those working in Canary Wharf (a half-hour away via the DLR) or seeing a show at the O2 Arena (a fifteen-minute taxi ride)
