Bed and Breakfast accommodation by the Battersea Park, South West London
Battersea – the area is best known for its beautiful Park and iconic Power Station.
From the early seventeenth century to the early nineteenth Battersea was best known for market gardening supplying vegetables, fruit and flowers to the London markets. The area now covered by the park was known as Battersea fields and crops of carrots, asparagus and lavender were grown all the way up to Lavender Hill (made famous by the iconic film “The Lavender Hill Mob”). Eversleigh Road lies between Battersea Park and Lavender Hill. The street is at the north side of the Shaftesbury Park Estate, a collection of homes built by the ‘Artisans, Labourers and General Dwelling Company’, established in 1867 by architect, William Austin and supported by the philanthropist Lord Shaftesbury.
A very peaceful but Central area, near to bus routes around other parts of Central London.
Eversleigh Road Property was built in the 1870s. In the 1911 Census, the house was a linen shop and home to 8 people; the linen merchant, his wife and two children, two apprentices (one of them from Sweden) and a lady who took in laundry and her son. The original house has been extended since then but today we consider it a comfortable space for the Hosts and 1 to 4 Guests.
The redevelopment of the Power Station is reinvigorating the area, and the riverside in particular, with new cafés, restaurants and shops opening all the time.
Set on the edge of the Thames River, Battersea Park is a beautiful park with so much to do. You can hire a row boat or pedalo on the boating lake, hire a scooter, bike, tricycle or visit the small zoo. Alternatively there is plenty to do for free like visit the Pagoda of Peace, check out the fountains or the stunning views.
