This is our period house we have spent the last 4 years lovingly renovating ourselves from a wreck into a comfortable family home. We have done most of the work ourselves with our two small children, trying to be as sustainable and ecologically mindful as possible.
We hand built the kitchen from old school lab benches, have used lime render and eco paints, most of our furniture is secondhand or sustainably produced. We grow food in our garden, you'll find bikes to borrow and a restful base.
The kitchen doors open out onto a sun trap patio where you can eat and at the end of the garden you can catch the last of the sun for a sundowner. There is a sandpit for kids to enjoy in the garden and a colourful kids bedroom full of books and toys to use. There is plenty of room to relax after a day's exploring London, a well equipped kitchen, continuous hot water and a wood burner for cosy evenings in.

We can arrange fresh food boxes for your stay with Hello Fresh or Able and Cole should you wish. This must be paid for additionally. We have a folder full of useful information about the house and area as well as lots of interesting books on London and London with kids. We can also put you in touch with local babysitters should you wish to have a night out without kids.
This is our home that we have worked hard to create with a lot of love, sweat and occasional tears. Please treat it with love, care and respect.
No animals, no smoking, no additional guests without prior request. Shoes off inside please, we have guest slippers you can borrow. Babies and young children crawl on the floors so we like to keep them free of outside dirt.

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!
