Hackney is home to London's most hipster and creative areas. It's also home to London Fields and on the borders of Victoria Park, one of London's oldest, more beautiful parks.
Have you ever booked a holiday home with great reviews and found yourself disappointed? Us too.
That is why the Plum Guide doesn’t operate a traditional review system. Instead we test every one of our homes obsessively against 32 criteria. Only 1 in 100 homes we test, is accepted. This is one of them.
"This property has it's pros and cons. The pros far outweigh the cons and depending on the kind of person you are you're probably going to be thinking, 'Girl you crazy, this place is awesome' But for a small town Surrey girl like myself who really enjoys a farmers kitchen, it's not quite my cup of tea. Let me explain. The entrance is an instant wow factor with the stairwell dominating the majority of the space, the bedroom and bathroom are cosy and it's gothic decor is inspired. Home cinema set up with projector screen and surround sound throughout the apartment is also something worth noting, however the lack of stair banister and limited kitchen appliances are something you'd really need to be careful of. This place is beautiful and very much unique, but those wanting convenience would have to sacrifice this for the design. It's fashion before function....but then who needs to be functional on holiday? "
