I have had the pleasure of spending last weekend at the Hampstead Guesthouse. The experience was rewarding on many levels, and I’d certainly recommend the rustic, authentic, and characterful guesthouse to enrich your stay in this beautiful part of London. The rooms are clean and soulful, breakfast in the garden is a pleasure (weather permitting) and the location is ideal if spending time in the beautiful heath is a priority. I’ve been fortunate enough to be given the magical, dreamy and cleansing experience of swimming in one of the heath’s ponds, an essential element from now on if hopefully I make it back to Hampstead. Lastly, the tube trip turned out to be much shorter than I had expected, something to consider in the choice of where to stay in this vibrant, colorful metropolis if you cherish calmness.
