a word from the owner...

"We have thoroughly enjoyed our time at the property, primarily due to its superb location. Being just a short walk from the local high street and Leytonstone station has made our. daily commutes incredibly convenient. Located just a stop from Wanstead High Street, we are close to a selection of excellent pubs, restaurants, and the area's monthly farmers' market. Additionally, Walthamstow Village is within easy walking distance. Locally, we often visit , The Kitchen, The Red Lion, The Birds, The Bull and the Leytonstone Tavern - which boasts some of the best burgers in London. For cocktail enthusiasts, an evening at Rear Window is essential, where Ruth, the landlady, always provides a warm welcome. Also, be sure not to miss the tacos at Hommies on Donkey's. As dog owners, we particularly value the proximity to Hollow Ponds. We've spent many enjoyable summer evenings and weekends strolling around the pond and exploring the expansive open spaces with our furry friend. Despite its vibrant local atmosphere, the property's location—set back from the main road—allows us to enjoy the tranquility of Waltham Forest. For those who enjoy cycling, there are excellent routes through Walthamstow that lead into Hackney and Epping Forest. In summary, Leytonstone offers the best of both worlds: a vibrant urban lifestyle with easy access to the city, coupled with the charm of the Essex countryside."

Our Local Guide:

Forest Road, Leytonstone — Stow Brothers

There’s more to Leytonstone than first meets the eye. Say the name to one person and they might think of the grand houses around Hollow Ponds, while say it to someone else and they’ll mention burgeoning South Leytonstone, or maybe the popular Bushwood. There are many different pockets, but they’re all united by the same inclusive community who recognise that it’s the balance of it all that makes Leytonstone so great.

The centre is arguably the high street with its eclectic shops and eateries, but you only have to venture slightly further away and you’ll come across hidden gems like bar Filly Brook on Grove Green Road, music venue Luna Lounge in Bushwood, or the The Hitchcock Hotel in Upper Leytonstone. Travel a little beyond and you’ll find further contrast with the vast green space that Hollow Ponds and the Wanstead Flats provide. Simply put, you’ll never get bored in Leytonstone.

Transport links

Just two stops from Stratford, Leytonstoners can nip to the Kent coast with surprising ease, but Central London or the City on the tube might be more useful - the former takes about 25 mins and the latter 15 mins. Easy.

Great Pubs

Too many pubs to choose from… What a problem to have. With The Red Lion, Heathcote and Star, The Hitchcock Hotel, The North Star, Leytonstone Tavern, locals are spoilt for choice. Better bring your pub crawl A-game if you visit.

Plenty of period property

Despite all the urban bustle, Leytonstone has an abundance of wide, tree-lined streets brimming Victorian and Edwardian property, ranging from the grand homes in Upper Leytonstone, a stone’s throw from Hollow Ponds, to the many terraces of South Leytonstone, and the popular community of Bushwood with its active residents’ association.
