Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

This former pub has been transformed into a chic homestead ideal for London getaways. Modern touches abound here – there's an egg-shaped barbecue on the private terrace, an exercise room with a Peloton, or chef-grade kitchen appliances ideal for keen cooks. One of the bedrooms is a tad snug, but we think that's a worthwhile trade, especially in such a central location. Elephant & Castle Station is less than ten minutes on foot, while sightseeing hotspots like the South Bank, Westminster, and Buckingham Palace are also within easy reach. Your host is also happy to arrange any services or extras you may need, from pre-arrival groceries to bespoke London experiences.

Home truths

    This home has an inverted layout. All three bedrooms and the two bathrooms are on the lower level. This means they do lack a little bit of natural light.

    While children are welcome, infants may not be allowed. Please speak to your host for more details.

    One of the beds is pushed against the wall, so it’s only accessible from one side.

    Parking isn't provided, but with a Tube station nearby, we don't think a car is necessary here.

Today, the area features a number of high rise residential blocks, the proximity to London Bridge greatly appealing. While it's not a primary destination, there are some notable attractions, including the Imperial War Museum (a must...
