Home Critic’s notes
Chic, comfortable and surprising, this beautiful little studio is tucked in the garden of a fine Lewisham family home. With its own entrance, you have the chance to feel totally secluded and completely safe in this cool part of town.

Staying in New Cross
New Cross is an often overlooked part of town which is now finally getting its due. The local art students from Goldsmiths (Damien Hirst, Sam Taylor-Johnson and Steve McQueen are all alumni) have brought an interesting mix of pop-up cafés, restaurants and music events to the area. This edgy, bohemian atmosphere have set the inevitable gentrification process in motion (where artists go, everyone else eventually follows) but fear not, New Cross still has some grit and character to it.

What the photos might not tell you, but we do
This converted garage studio involves a mezzanine bed. While it's a really clever use of space, the ceiling height comes to a peak at 196cm, so if you're very tall, this might not be for you.
If you need to use a washer/dryer, there isn't one in the studio, however Helena's happy to let you use the one in the main house.
This studio has its own separate entrance that might be quite tricky to get to with a lot of bags, as it's down a rough road.
