Had a lovely 2 day stay here while visiting London. This is a small b&b located in Barnet in northern metro London. It is an approximately 10 minute walk from the Woodside Park tube station on the Northern line in a residential neighborhood, and was approximately 1 hour from Heathrow on the tube. Shops and pubs are only a further 5-10 minute walk up the street. An added bonus is a network of nature walking paths within a few minutes that take you into parks and gardens that dot the area and provide a real respite from the bustle of central London.
The b&b comprises two connected and renovated historic homes. My room was on the 3rd floor and one of the staff kindly helped me take my bag upstairs. The room was very clean and large, with a comfortable bed, desk space, and a modern bathroom. Breakfast is served in a large dining room overlooking a well-maintained garden and a wide variety of options (cereals, yogurt, fruit, eggs, etc.), most of which are cooked to order. Wifi was strong and fast.
Although the location is definitely outside central London and will require a bus or tube ride, the difference in cost, the pleasant surroundings, and the ability to get out and take a walk in some lovely gardens and parks makes up for the extra time it takes to get here. Also, if travelling by tube, note that the Woodside Park station does not have "step-free" exits when arriving northbound. In other words, you need to take your bags upstairs and across a bridge to exit the station in the direction of the Heatherbank.
