a word from the owner...

"I have loved living in this flat for many years being nestled on the edge of Springfield Park and the wild and wonderful Walthamstow Marshes, on the banks of the River Lea. This is a truly special little corner of Hackney. The walks, runs and hundreds of coffees at the Boat House Cafe on the river have brought me so much peace and calm over the years. It really is an oasis. But it's also super easy to get into Shoreditch, with with Clapton Station 11 mins away from Liverpool St and a short bus ride into Hackney Central. The location really does offer you the best of both worlds. Nature lovers or those just looking for a little calm in the city will love this place as much I do."

Our Local Guide:

Big Hill, Hackney — Stow Brothers

Where do you start with Hackney? It can feel like it’s all been said before, but, of course, it can’t have been because the area is constantly evolving, which is what keeps it so fresh. It’s just what happens when a neighbourhood has such a high population of creative innovators.

Even fans of Hackney’s scruffier edges love the imaginative ways that the area has been regenerated, with thoughtfully-designed stores, bars and coffee shops sitting comfortably alongside sleek architecture and beloved institutions such as Ridley Road Market.

Despite all this urban buzz, the area has a surprisingly large amount of green space, including Hackney Wick, Victoria Park and London Fields, which fill up with a mix of visitors and locals at weekends. Whether they go on to have food at a Michelin-starred restaurant, a pint in The Talbot or a swim in the lido, they’re all united in their love of this most unique community.
