Want to know more about Clapton? Here’s your insider guide

Clapton is one of North London’s hidden gems with a flourishing community full of cosmopolitan shops, restaurants and cafes.

The area also benefits from bordering well-established areas of London, such as Stoke Newington, Newington Green and Dalston. Having launched Quartet earlier this year, our new development situated adjacent to Clapton Common, we’ve had a dig around to find some of the area’s best kept secrets, making it a perfect haven for homebuyers looking to lay down roots in the capital.

Situated on the edge of Clapton Common, Quartet has scenic views of the green-lined park and on a Sunday, residents can make the most of the area’s surrounding shops and markets and walk through the common to Chatsworth Road Market. This Sunday market is renowned for bringing food from around the globe as stalls are filled with everything from sushi, samosas to haggis and empanadas.

If you're looking to find your local pub, then the Clapton Hart is the one for you. The shabby-chic design makes it an North London gem with a large beer garden for the warm summer and a grand selection of beers. Quartet is a stone’s throw from Stamford Hill Broadway, which is filled with butchers, bakers, delis and boutique shops.

Quartet is a stone’s throw from Stamford Hill Broadway, which is filled with butchers, bakers, delis and boutique shops. A hidden delight is Meat N16, a delicatessen which specialises in meats and wines, and is within walking distance on Church Street in Stoke Newington. Also offering cooking courses, it is perfect for those looking for more inspiration to recreate dishes in our wonderfully high-spec kitchens.

For those looking for a more active lifestyle in the capital, this could be a great spot for you. Would you believe you are a short walk away from an ice-rink, rowing club and horse-riding centre? Quartet also has bike storage facilities so residents can make the most of the surrounding cycle paths, like the Wetlands to Wetlands cycle path which offers a green route between Woodberry Wetlands and Walthamstow Wetlands.
