Barnsbury Corner

Barnsbury Corner, Plum Guide home in London

Barnsbury Corner, Plum Guide home in London

Click to book Barnsbury Corner now: from £400 per night Islington was once the playground of literary greats – George Orwell and Evelyn Waugh among others – but these days it’s where media types rest their heads and write witty blog posts on their MacBooks in organic cafes. This beautiful, five-storey Georgian townhouse on a leafy backstreet in Barnsbury, brings together these two worlds. It’s full of charming original features, including wrought-iron fireplaces, enormous sash windows, wooden shutters and even a coal vault. The decor plays on its rich history with almost Gothic touches – dark blue walls, a jet-black wooden four-poster bed, gunmetal roll-top bath – but this adds drama, not darkness. In any case, the light from those glorious sash windows make it impossible for any gloom to creep in. Grab a book from the library and head outside to the delightful paved garden, where tangled wisteria and mature trees keep things incredibly private for a city pad. Like Islington's legendary writers, we think you'll find plenty to write home about. Sleeps up to 8 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms

Click to book The Mimosa now: from £280 per night Located in the heart of London’s buzzing Soho district, this sleek and elegant apartment is as chic as its trendy surroundings are. Colourful textures in soft blues and oranges create a feeling of warmth and intimacy in the living area, where a large window lets in plenty of light. This is the perfect spot to start your morning off with a cup of coffee and a newspaper before setting off to explore the city’s sights. After a day of retail therapy on Carnaby Street, seeing a spectacular West End show, or enjoying a stroll in nearby Green Park, come back home for a soak in the luxurious shower. Later, head out to explore London’s vibrant restaurant scene – right at your front door – or cook yourself up a tasty feast in the modern kitchen. At the end of the night, curl up in bed with a good movie on the bedroom’s flat-screen TV before drifting into a comfortable night’s sleep. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Click to book The Cambridge Circus now: from £145 per night There’s so much to love about this flat – not least its incredible location, just a five-minute walk from Leicester Square, Soho, Chinatown and Covent Garden. The home itself – with its Victorian features – is just as impressive. Enter the living room to be awe-struck by the ornate ceiling that lends a definite touch of grandeur to the space. Hardwood floors and a chic, minimalist aesthetic complete the scene, with pieces of modern art sprinkled on the walls giving the home plenty of artistic flair. The bedrooms too are calm, cool and understated with a blue and white palette that puts you instantly at ease. Once you’ve had your morning coffee in the bright dining nook, there’s no time to waste before exploring your surroundings. Catch a West End show, dive into Soho’s culinary kaleidoscope and make your way around the countless museums and monuments that give Central London its vibrant edge.

The Ironmonger

Click to book The Ironmonger now: from £145 per night There’s an air of New York to this warehouse loft with its brick exterior, fire escape stairs and huge Crittall windows. Once inside though, you’ll see this pad is all East London cool. Located in hipper-than-hip Hoxton, this funky flat is full of colourful character and fascinating design elements. From its large, leather L-shaped sofa to its pendant lights and eclectic posters, this space is made for living it up and winding down, both in equal measure. We love the main room’s loading doors that open up onto a balcony and the steel desk that will make working from home a treat. The kitchen, too, is a masterclass in industrial chic with its AGA Rangemaster double oven, wine cabinet and sleek stainless steel countertops. The bedroom, meanwhile, is calm and understated with a detailed wood headboard and artistic prints adding pops of colour. While we won’t blame you for wanting to chill out in your city pad all day long, there’s plenty of entertainment to be had right outside your door. Walk to lively Shoreditch in fifteen minutes, sample Brick Lane’s world cuisine (twenty minutes away on foot) or stay local in Hoxton to discover its countless boutiques, bars and restaurants. After a long day of sightseeing, come back home for a luxurious soak under the rainfall shower, then cosy up for a movie night on the 70-inch LG TV, a glass of wine in hand. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
