Arlington Avenue

Bed & Breakfast

Laissez-faire B&B, amazing value in Georgian Islington, and delightful bedrooms to boot. Help yourself to breakfast when you want


1 room


Rooms sleep 2


Follow the canal up to Islington from this 1848 townhouse. Inside you find a world of books and art; immaculate bedrooms (the double very spacious) are colourful and filled with pictures, etchings and pretty furniture, with views over several gardens to the back. The grey marble shared guest bathroom is down moderately steep stairs, but if you don’t mind that, you’ve struck gold. Shop locally, eat picnic suppers in the red and gold dining room, chill drinks in the fridge. Thomas will explain the day/night-time alarm system, and breakfast in the kitchen is a help yourself affair: this is laissez-faire B&B for sure, but fantastic value
