Perks for the Parents

This 3-bedroom Edwardian family home is packed with toys and close to Victoria Line services to central London. Ideal for a family stay, with plenty for the children to do at home and close by, it has a bus stop at the end of the road and shops and award-winning parks a stone's throw away. The lounge is well stocked with records and books, including many unusual guides to London, that you may borrow during your stay. Walthamstow is a family-friendly area with the city and Epping forest close by and home comforts and everything you need when you get back.

Why Kids Love it

This residence is a great family space for all ages, but especially younger children. The children's room is bright and colourful with bunk beds and a crib if needed. There are plenty of toys, games, puzzles, books and craft supplies in the children's room and around the house. There is a high chair, crib on request, bath toys and sandpit in the garden. The house is a short walk from 3 great parks, including a small park right around the corner and the large and varied Lloyd Park, 10 minutes away, that includes the award-winning William Morris Gallery.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. There is parking immediately outside with parking vouchers on request. Whilst being a family home with babycare items on request, the host’s children are 3 and 6 so the house is not baby-proofed with stairs gates, socket covers or safety catches on cupboards. All floors are hardwood and the stairs are extremely steep so extra care should be taken. This is a non-smoking and pet-free home, with a shoes off policy in the lounge and upstairs. Bikes can be borrowed on request, one with bike seat, one bike for 5-6yr old.

About the Location

This family home is in the friendly, family-oriented Walthamstow suburb of northeast London. It is an extremely friendly neighbourhood, with an annual street party. Nearby attractions include the William Morris Gallery, which has lots of children’s activities, Lloyd Park, God’s Own Junkyard, a neon sign shop/gallery, Epping Forest, markets, music and food festivals. The house is 10 minutes’ brisk walk from Walthamstow Central which is on the Victoria Line (Oxford Circus 15/20 minutes) and the Overland train to Liverpool Street (15 minutes). It is also 10 minutes from Blackhorse Road tube and overground service to Gospel Oak (20 minutes) for Hampstead Heath and changes for West London. It is 15 minutes into central London on the tube. The 123 bus goes from the end of the road to Blackhorse Road station.

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom mid terrace Edwardian family home has an eat-in kitchen leading out via bi-fold doors to an east facing patio and garden. There is an open plan lounge-dining room. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, the back bedroom with a small double sofa bed, the children's room with bunk beds suitable for ages 5 and up, and a cot on request, and a master bedroom with a kingsize bed. The bathroom has a shower over the bath with child-safe tap.

Style Notes

Modern Edwardian. This lovingly-converted period home is comfortable, child-friendly and charming. Characterful touches, all created by the owners, include the kitchen, built from old school lab benches. They used lime render and eco paints plus secondhand or sustainably produced furniture as far as possible. The garden includes a vegetable patch and there are bikes to borrow if you choose to go car-free. We love the beautiful modern art and posters, the cozy lounge and the array of toys for under tens.

We are a well travelled family that have made Walthamstow our home, spending the last four years renovating a dilapidated Edwardian terraced house and becoming part of the community. We've got a few more big jobs we'd like to do on the house like add solar panels and rainwater harvesting so we're now hoping to rent out our house to save up for these while we scratch our itchy feet and travel. We like to do things ourselves, love learning new things and about new places. Renovating the house has given us a great opportunity to learn to tile, build, make and more. We love our friends and family and our neighbourhood, exploring the green spaces of Epping Forest and the marshes as well as all the culture, music, food & craft beer on our doorstep! A perfect weekend is hopping on our bikes down the canal & having a beer in the sunshine!

Fifteen minutes northeast of central London by tube, Walthamstow is a lively suburb with plenty for families, from the activity-packed William Morris Gallery to Lloyds Park, pop up shops, the longest street market in Europe and more. Spy neon-lit art in God’s Own Junkyard, jump on the tube to explore the big city and check local listings to locate the area’s many music and food festivals.
