Lovely 4 Bed home swap in London - Islington, England

A delightful modernised Victorian terrace house with a mature garden in a quiet location close to excellent transport links. We have three double bedrooms and one single room. The loft conversion has its own bathroom. One bedroom has a small private balcony overlooking the garden.

The house is fully equipped for up to six people - a travel cot is also available. We are located five minutes walk from both Finsbury Park and Arsenal underground stations and there are buses from Finsbury Park Station and along Blackstock Road (again, five minutes walk) so we are ideally located for travel to any area of London for shopping or sightseeing.

The Victoria Line (from Finsbury Park) goes to St Pancras, Euston and Victoria main line stations and to Oxford Circus (for Oxford Street and Regent Street), and the Piccadilly Line (from Arsenal) goes to Highbury & Islington Station, St Pancras, Piccadilly Circus, Green Park (for Buckingham Palace) and to Heathrow Airport.

Travel to the Olympic Stadium is very easy, taking the underground to Highbury & Islington (1 stop) or to St Pancras (2 stops) where there are high-speed train links to the Stadium taking around 10 minutes.

There are lots of local restaurants and small local shops within easy walking distance with a selection of food from fast food take-aways to restaurants serving excellent meals. Upper Street (a short bus ride away) has many restaurants, shops and a market. Sadlers Wells and the Almeida Theatre are just a short bus ride away.

For children there is Finsbury Park which has a playground and cafe, and Highbury Fields which has a playground. Highbury Fields also has a large indoor swimming pool, gym and fitness centre.

Unfortunately the accommodation is not suitable for people with mobility problems as all the bedrooms are upstairs.
