Tuckaway Mattress(es)


Clerkenwell Albemarle is an understated two bedroom short let London home, moments from Farringdon station. Tucked away on a secret little side road that only our cabbies seem to know, you will not believe how close you are to the hub-bub of the City.

Pristine and well presented, the living room offers attractive honey coloured wooden floor boards, sofa, armchair and a flat screen TV. Enjoy the classic 20th century Eames furniture and bags of London style which make this home a comforting sanctuary.

The modern kitchen is open plan to the living room, unobtrusive and to the side. It offers all machines including a dishwasher, ceramic hob, washer/dryer, oven, microwave and cafetiere. There is also a folding dining table and chairs for four.

Directly off the kitchen is a large roof terrace overlooking the tranquil courtyard of the Order of St John. This is a lovely spot to relax amidst the fairy lights that adorn the two mature olive trees. The outdoor modular furniture has huge, comfortable cushions.

The master bedroom is a haven of calm with soothing smalt coloured walls and a generous king sized bed. The second bedroom has a comfortable single bed and overlooks the attractive church property adjacent. Newly laundered 1000 thread Egyptian quality linen is provided for each stay.

The smart modern bathroom has a large walk in shower, WC and basin. Deluxe starter toiletries and fluffy white towels are provided as standard.

Clerkenwell Albemarle is fully furnished and equipped including linen, towels, hairdryer, iron and ironing board.
This is a spacious short let London home on the second floor of a period building. The flat itself is arranged over two floors.

- Farringdon station - mainline trains plus Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith and City Line - a five minute walk away
- Barbican station - Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith and City Line - all in travel zone 1 - a seven minute walk.
- Chancery Lane - Central line - fifteen minute walk.
- All in travel zone 1
- There are several car parking garages in the immediate area however we do not recommend that you bring a car to central London.
- Black taxi's are plentiful in this area and can easily be hailed on the corner of the street.

This particular street in historic Clerkenwell is steeped in history. Oliver Twist, perhaps Charles Dickens' most beloved novel, was set in and around here. The Bard himself, Mr William Shakespeare, is said to have held play readings in St John's Square and Henry VII visited the Priory of St John and the cloister gardens behind it.

Clerkenwell itself is a convenient central London location in close proximity to the City, Bloomsbury, Shoreditch, Hoxton and Islington. There are great local amenities, numerous restaurants and supermarkets, plus historic and important cultural attractions. The Barbican is up the road, Hatton Garden is around the corner and you can walk to St Paul’s in 15 minutes. Farringdon station is one of the largest and best connected in London and only one stop to King's Cross / St Pancras. This is an authentic London pied-à-terre, much loved by the home owners and neat as a new pin.


“Had an inducible stay -- the flat is in a perfect location. Honestly, couldnt imagine a better set up. Elinor was more than readily available for any help we needed (not that we needed much) and the space is incredible. Would 10/10 recommend to anyone wanting to be in the Clerkenwell area!” Alex, September 2018.

This was an excellent experience! Everything was perfect - the space, location and wonderful care by the host. The flat is extremely clean, well appointed and perfect for either a business holiday traveler. I will definitely be staying again - the deck with the lovely olive trees really topped off the experience. Thank you! Patrick, June 2018

Place is fantastic, beautiful little flat, we will be back. Martha M, September 2017

Highly recommended! You can tell the flat has been recently updated and is in great shape. All the comforts of home which made our four day stay very enjoyable. Also in a great location as well. It is less than a five minute walk to the tube, grocery and many great pubs and restaurants. Will rent again! Jim K, May 2017 >br>
The perfect home base for us during our study abroad programme. The terrace is a great place to relax. Thanks for the lovely extras, much appreciated. Susan & Kristin, May 2017

Thank you for everything! A wonderful flat in a great part of London. For those who enjoy live music in an intimate venue, be sure to check out the Slaughtered Lamb. Cheers! Jim & Alex, May 2017

Springtime in London is Beautiful! We enjoyed this wonderful space near to our daughter who is studying in London. It was very nice to be able to cook some of our meals here using all the newly supplied accessories. Being close to the tube was so convenient as well. Kathy, Minnesota, USA. March 2017

First off, the apartment has been amazing. Thank you for sharing this wonderful space. I have enjoyed all of the special touches — design, quality, fresh flowers. I will definitely be in touch for my next trip to London. Trevor, March 2017

A great location, well fitted flat and hospitable host. Difficult to say where better to stay within walking distance of Sadler's Wells and Holborn. Ian and Julianne, January, 2017

New, stylish and very elegant with lovely mid century furniture. Really liked the terrace with a view over that tranquil garden. Quirky, historic and unbelievably convenient. Amazing deal, definitely coming again! J. Allen, Cornwall, January 2017

Quel enchantement de passer un sejour dans cet appartement. Ici, tout est une affaire de gout, de savoir vivre et de confort. Merci a vous, c' est un honneur de faire partie de vos hotel. Hugues Allart, December 2016 and January 2017

Clerkenwell is a vibrant and sought after area of central London on the edge of the City, a popular area enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. There's lots to do to help you spend all that cash made in the City and keen shoppers can find anything from antique collectables and works of art, to good local produce - Exmouth Market being a fine example and just a stone's throw away. On Clerkenwell Road you will find many of London's finest and most famous restaurants. The entire area is rich in gastro pubs and Italian Delis so come prepared to shop, eat and generally have a good time.

Hand in hand with commerce and high finance goes culture and Europe’s largest art and conference venue is your neighbour - the renowned Barbican Arts Centre. This prominent venue is the home of the London Symphony Orchestra and hosts contemporary and classical music, opera, theatre and innovative visual art installations.

Exploring east move towards Hoxton and the lively local street markets of Columbia Road flower market, Brick Lane, Broadway Market, Spitalfields and Pettycoat Lane. Much loved by locals, the area offers vibrant restaurants, music venues, bars and night life, as well as renowned galleries and museums - the Cube and Geffrye Museum being perhaps best known.

Or head south from your home and take a leisurely stroll through the City to St Paul's, over the Millennium Bridge to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and lunch at Tate Modern.

Going west you can wander around antique Bloomsbury and Holborn, explore the wonderful treasures of the British Museum and pop in at one of the four Inns of Court to get a feel for medieval London.

If you are feeling energetic there are many cycle paths along the canals which are great for pootling around on a lazy Sunday with a pit stop at the local pub.

Your choices are endless as the area truly has something for everyone. Lots of culture and history to keep you fascinated, plus a thriving nightlife to keep you entertained.
