Holiday Rental House
We have a lovely two bedroom house with garden and summer house in East Barnet, North London. The house is cosy and situated in a quiet residential street with friendly neighbours and on street parking. It is only a five to ten minute walk to Oakleigh Park station with trains running directly to Kings Cross and Moorgate each taking 15 – 20 minutes. The transport links are fantastic. The house is equipped with everything you could need for a home away from home. It has a TV/DVD player in the lounge and each of the bedrooms, wireless internet connection, washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave, underfloor heating in the bathroom, etc. We aimed to make the house as comfortable as possible and have provided comfortable beds with Egyptian cotton bedding and high quality mattresses. ...We have a lovely two bedroom house with garden and summer house in East Barnet, North London.

There is a kingsize bed in the first bedroom and a single bed in the second bedroom. The lounge is at the front of the house but set back from the road so it is quiet and relaxing. The summer house, which is at the back of the house and opens up into the garden, is a wonderful place to completely relax after a hard day sight seeing – or you could give the sight seeing a miss and just enjoy the peace and quiet of the house. The house was built by William Jackson, who the road is named after, at the turn of the century to accommodate the railway workers hence the name of the cottage. The house is around the corner (not even a two minute walk) from East Barnet village that has a number of restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, shops and a pub. The pub, called the Prince of Wales, was owned by William Jackson. There is also a beautiful park nearby (200 metres) with a children’s play area, a woodland walk, tennis courts, a pitch and putt golf course and a small indoor soft play centre with a cafe. In the more general area, you have the historic Alexandra Palace, with great views of London, which is only two stops on the overground line from Oakleigh Park station. You also have easy access to Trent Park which houses an equestrian centre, an 18-hole golf course and a Go Ape centre. It is also a lovely place to go for a long walk or cycle ride. Please note that the house has two floors with steps throughout. Those with mobility issues or young children will need to fully consider this. Also, we do not allow pets or smoking in the house. Checking in time is from 15.00hrs on the day of residence and checking out time is 11.00hrs on the day of departure. These times are for where we have back to back bookings. Where there are not back to back bookings we are happy to be flexible. When booking please let us have your preferred arrival and departure times and we will do our best to accommodate you. More
