Prince of Wales Penthouse, 2 bed with roof terrace, Camden
This stylish split-level apartment is on the top floor of a Victorian townhouse on the fashionable Prince of Wales Road in Chalk Farm with a host of attractions within walking distance - Camden Markets, Regent's Canal and Pirate's Castle for children and then a short bus ride, or 15-20 minute walk to Primrose Hill and its magnificent views!
The main living space is warm and inviting, with two large grey sofas, an antique style desk, large mirror on one wall and an original fireplace with exposed brickwork surround. A splash of maroon comes from the abstract painting on one wall and there are many other interesting pieces of art throughout. This is a lovely space for entertaining, with a large flatscreen tv with Sky and a super surround sound system.
The room is spacious with two sash windows on one side and another in the kitchen at the far end of the room. The dining table and chairs are alongside another wall of exposed brick, which has a built-in wine rack and there are wooden floors throughout. The kitchen is fully equipped with a modern hob and cooker, a fridge-freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.
The master bedroom is an impressive space, with a double bed, a white chest of drawers and a large fitted wardrobe. Dark wood French windows open out onto a lovely balcony space. The second bedroom has a double bed with a black & white floral bedstead, pine chest of drawers, a large built-in cupboard and a free-standing full length mirror. (For fifth and sixth guests, the sofas can be set up as beds, or additional single mattresses can be brought in, on request.)
The modern bathroom has a bath with shower attachment over it, a loo, sink and heated towel rail.
The local areas of Chalk Farm and Kentish Town have a variety of delights, from the Camden Market to gastro pubs and restaurants and state of the art sports centres. There are many boutique shops and art galleries to explore and you are also near the upmarket areas of Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath.
Kentish Town West is the nearest station, about a minutes walk away!
Alternatively, Chalk Farm tube station is just 5 minutes away and connects to the Northern line and Camden Town (also on the Norther line) is just under a 10 minute walk. There are many buses leaving from nearby bus stop which will take you to all areas of the Capital.

We only stayed 3 nights in London but this place was perfect. It is well located in Camden, close to shops pubs and transport links. The balcony was great but we didn't have the best weather to use it unfortunately. There are 2 really comfy sofas and the kitchen was well equipped. The 2 bedrooms are on different levels and this means there is lots of space. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone
