My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. The history behind it is quite remarkable, and it's a shame that the bakery closed. We have stayed in many vacation rentals around Europe, and none have been quite as nice as this. The small amenities such as coffee and bread were very much appreciated. After a long trip you don't want to worry about going grocery shopping immediately after arriving. The owner gave us a superb rundown of the place as well as pointing us in the right direction to find groceries and great places to eat. Her recommendation of a restaurant was spot-on. The guestbook was also a nice touch, as you can read what everyone else that stayed there had to say about the place. Trust me, it was all positive.

We love London (this was not our first trip to this fine city) and this was definitely the best trip so far. The location is perfect for being out of a busy urban location, but close enough that getting downtown is a breeze thanks to the wonderful train system. If you are planning a trip to London and want a reasonably-priced rental, this fits the bill nicely. There is a National Rail station less than 5 minutes away by foot, and in less than 30 minutes you're downtown.

The worst part about the trip? As usual, it was having to give up the keys and go home. But that's the same wherever I go. The stairs leading to the second floor were rather steep, but there is a door at the bottom to close if you have small children. There are also baskets provided for carrying objects up and down safely.

So glad that I got the restaurant recommendations right! The Old Bakery must have been a real asset to the area when it was still baking and selling bread (it closed as a bakery in 1960), but an excellent bakery has recently opened nearby and supplies a shop just a few metres away on The Green. So you can once again get the best bread possible.

How pleased Winchmore Hill residents will be to have the area called a "pleasant little village". Despite being incorporated into London 144 years ago, in 1870, when a train line from the centre of London was built, we pride ourselves on maintaining the friendly atmosphere of a village and keeping the old Village Green looking as nice as possible, even though cars having replaced horses and carts. This is a Conservation Area, which helps a lot.

This historic cottage, parts of which date from the 17th century, has been very well preserved and where necessary, sensitively modernised. It looks unassuming from the outside and is discretely placed on the village green in a desirable suburb of London. It is ideally located within a one minute walk of the excellent transport links. The local amenties include a beautiful park and several good restaurants and gastropubs, as well as a few smaller tea shops, delicatessens . and a newsagent. A 5 minute walk takes you to a well stocked supermarket, while just across the road you will find a smaller grocery store for any smaller or last minute purchases. The accomodation includes a cosy sitting room, a delightful dining room , and two nice bedrooms with oak beams . both with their separate ensuite facilities > There is also a well equipped kitchen upstairs . We had a lovely weekend here and would certainly come again. You need to be a little careful with the steep original staircase.

When these visitors stayed one of our best pubs, The King's Head, was shut for refurbishment. It has now re-opened and reports are that the new chef's cooking is excellent. There is a good choice of places to eat without having to leave Winchmore Hill Green.

It is always good to know that our guests really enjoyed the apartment. What a lovely review. It makes the work of getting everything as good as we can feel so worthwhile. I'm glad the cushions on the sofa are welcome. I added a couple of new ones recently. I think that good internet access is essential to most holiday makers these days. So, unlike most of the central London hotels (whom you would think could be more generous considering their high room rates) we do not charge for WiFi.

“We thoroughly enjoyed our month's stay in this charming, historic accommodation”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Chalkley's is conveniently situated by Winchmore Hill station and the village green. The neighbouring area is distinctive and pleasant. Transport links are excellent: we could get to the West End or City easily by train and underground. Nina was a very pleasant hostess. The apartment is very well fitted out with all appliances necessary to make the stay comfortable. The rooms are delightful and charming with comfortable, attractive furnishings. The heating was perfect, the mattresses extremely comfortable. The half-timbered bathroom to the twin room was great! We felt the sense of history and appreciated the care that had been taken to maintain the historic aspects of the building.

a lovely little cottage in a picturesque setting, far from the madding crowd! A warm welcome from Nina who gave us some tips on places to see. Very cosy and warm, nice and clean too. This was an ideal base as only a 3 minute walk to the station and a 30 minute train ride away from central London. The stairs took a bit of getting used to so would not recommend this place to people with mobility problems which is a shame because I think the upstairs layout is really nice.
We ate at the Indian restaurant on our 1st night and it was very good, we also drove approx 10 minutes to the nearest Toby Carvery which again was very good.
We would definitely stay again and our 14 year old daughter was impressed too!
