Covent Garden, Central London
Worldly heritage Almost touched by the shadow of Nelson’s Column is a home with an unusual backstory. Once a members’ club within a Norwegian embassy, Cockspur Street’s walls have seen it all – from gentlemen taking whisky, to attachés taking shelter during the Blitz. And it hasn’t lost a jot of its elegance. Hefty beams overlook modern upholstery, oak panelling is hung with nature-inspired paintings, and the books contain a collection of English wit. And no matter the era, you couldn’t be better located for the sights and sounds of iconic Trafalgar Square, just two minutes' walk from your doorstep. Wisdom holders Your hosts love how close they are to one of the city's most visited squares, and are keen students of their home’s intriguing past. And they’ve done an especially fine job of preserving the old while introducing the new. Current affairs Though you can spy Admiral Nelson from the sitting room’s window, this home’s marvellous panelled walls, soaring beams and stone fireplace will draw your gaze firmly inside. The contemporary mustard-hued chairs in the sitting room invite you to indulge in discussion, or follow the panelling to the master bedroom, with its modern art and stately red sofa. And while there’s a strong sense of history here, the bathrooms with walk-in showers and marbled walls could hardly be more up-to-date.

The apartment was perfect for our family's needs with a perfect location, great amenities, and it was beautiful.
The apartment exceeded all expectations and the service from the onefinestay staff was excellent.
The location of this property was superb - easy walking distance to any theaters. And very quiet!
Loved having a kitchen. It was a beautiful flat, with lots of space.
The flat is supper clean and efficient. All the appliances were in top condition and the app was very helpful. Appreciate the fine quality of bed linen and luxury towels. Lots of cupboard space in both bedrooms and love the sensor lighting. Thanks forgetting our groceries upon our arrival. A very cosy place to return to after a full day of running around London.
The Cockspur flat was perfect----this was our second stay there and we loved it; so close to Covent Garden area; easy to transportation; large enough for two couples or three people like our group.
The fireplace in this home is ornamental.
Both of the bedrooms in this home are equipped with ceiling fans and air purifiers. There is also an air purifier in the sitting room.
This home's central location means you may be able to hear a certain level of noise inside. However, the home is on the fifth floor and both of the bedrooms have very effective soundproofed windows.
There is currently construction work taking place in a neighbouring home. One of the buildings is currently being demolished as part of a two-year renovation.
