Hi there! I am an architect and I am currently airnbnb'ing a lovely spacious bedroom in the Stoke Newington/ Finsbury Park area in my bright and spacious flat.
It is very close to Church street and Blackstock Road, which are both filled with nice cafes, supermarkets, shops, restuarnts and pubs.
Finsbury Park station and Arsenal station are about 8 min walk and there are loads of public transport into the city which will only take about 15-20min.
There is also nice parks around the house.
