About this listing
A lovely light double room available for B & B in our fourth floor home. The room has stunning views over parkland and across to the Olympic Village. Breakfast can be served whenever suits you (just let us know the day before) and will be a choice of organic fruits, yoghurt, muesli or delicious traditional cooked breakfast (veggie option available). The bathroom is shared with us (two of us).
You are welcome to use the fully equipped kitchen and spend time watching the sun set on our lovely south facing balcony amidst the jasmine, lavender and clematis.
We are a 20 minute walk from the Olympic Village, opposite Millfields Park, Hackney Marshes and the Lea River. Chatsworth Road has lovely cafes, gourmet foods and a trendy Sunday market. Nearby pubs also offer good interesting wines, beers and food. Excellent transport links take you into central London in half an hour. We're happy to advise on local and Londonwide things to do and can lend you books on London walks etc, if you're interested.
As we said, the views are fantastic, however, they come at a cost of four flights of stairs (we're happy to help carry luggage up and down the stairs!), so unfortunately this apartment is not suitable for those with mobility issues. Secure covered bike racks are available at the back of our building.
Things to do nearby
We are 20 minutes walk from the Olympic Park and buses and overground trains are ten minutes walk away. It takes about half an hour to get into central London from here.

I live in Hackney with my partner and work as a musician and violin teacher here. We really like it here - it's a vibrant, interesting place to live and we're fortunate to have great views and lots of light in our flat. We're looking forward to meeting people who would like to share our home for B & B over the Olympics - looks like it will be an exciting time! Please feel free to get in touch.
