Wanted: some sort of office space for five weeks

This may or may not work in the world of coronavirus, but it's worth an ask.
I'm spending 5 weeks from the week starting 30 March writing a book. I was going to be based in a shared office-club place, but clearly that won't work. Writing from home will be difficult, due to distractions/other people etc.
So I was wondering: does anyone have a room/space/home office/shed/pod/anything of some sort I could rent? It would need to be one I could access in a non-shared way, ie to not have to have daily close contact with others, so it's not any more of a public health risk than working from home. I'd mainly be working fairly standard hours, but I'd need access beyond those, in case the deadline looms. And I'm based in SE5, so it would need to be somewhere I could cycle to fairly quickly.
But beyond that my needs are basic: just power, light, access to a loo and ideally wifi. Even wifi isn't a dealbreaker, as I could use a mifi dongle. A desk and chair would be good, though at a real push I could even bring them along. Price could be negotiable. It can be in a building with others, as long as the space is separate. I'd be quiet, nothing more than tapping laptop keys and the flick of book pages.
Any ideas welcome.
