Truly loved our stay at the Stables. Nina was literally waiting at the gate for us when we arrived, though some of that may be due to luck. The setting was nothing less than idyllic with its private courtyard, flowers in bloom and cozy accommodations. It was so nice to have a quiet place to come home to but be...

Management response:

So glad that these charming guests enjoyed their stay. We too love the courtyard garden and it is always at its best is May and June. This year there have been even more birds on our bird-feeders that usual. Winchmore Hill is a pleasant and very popular residential area of London with excellent communication to the centre. As the station...

The property was adorable. the garden was super cozy but large and I loved seeing the little tortoise running around the gardens. This property is a 15 minute train ride into...

My husband and I stayed in the Stables at Nina's Old Bakery during the first leg of our honeymoon, and had such a wonderful time. The Stables was cozy and quaint, and a nice retreat after spending the day in busy London. The train station is a 2 min walk from the apartment, but be advised it's not the tube,...

Management response:

About the neighbourhood
Winchmore Hill Green is the heart of a Conservation Area, i.e. an area of historic architectual interest. The Green was originally the centre of a small village with mediaeval roots. Remarkably, it has retained its friendly atmosphere and community cohesion, despite being absorbed into London in the 1860s when the railways arrived and tranformed the way of life. It is often said that London is a series of villages. If so, Winchmore Hill is one of the finest. We are fortunate that many buildings survive from these earlier times, including The Old Bakery (a Listed Historic Building dating back to circa 1600), of which your apartment is a part. Among other buildings of interest are the Friends Meeting House (Quakers) and the 18thC clap-board cottages in Church Hill. The Green, Winchmore Hi... more
