Description(Reference number: 78878)
Nestled in the heart of Bloomsbury's literary quarter, this charming Georgian townhouse is a great find for families. Over the last two hundred years, this garden square has had many notable residents, including Leonard and Virginia Woolf (who lived at 37) and DH Lawrence (lodged at 44), while John Masefield became poet laureate in 1930, living under this very roof. A private communal garden with tennis courts makes this a truly rare find in this part of town. Spread over four floors, this city-centre base is not best-suited for those who aren't keen on stairs but for a family with older children, or a group of friends who want to be in an upmarket part of town, it's perfect. Nearby, daytime and nighttime entertainment options are sorted courtesy of a trio of fascinating museums, Sadler's Wells Theatre, Bounce and The Piano Works in nearby Farringdon (all within a fifteen-minute walk). Standout local eateries include The Quality Chop House (ten minutes' walk) and St. John (just under twenty minutes away).
*The host asks you to take your shoes off in the entrance hallway
*There are stairs aplenty here, so the space isn't suitable for toddlers or those who are less mobile
*This is a lived-in home, so expect some personal effects
*There is a flat beneath the property, so the host asks noise be kept to a minimum in the TV room
*This is a large house, so the internet can be a little patchy in some rooms
*Those with allergies may want to look elsewhere as two cats usually live in this home, though they won't be here during your stay
