Please note that we are closed between mid-January and May 2015 while we have some building work done. We will have additional rooms after May, but can only take advance bookings for the single room before then.
This is a small single room which is only suitable for one adult.
Our prices include a choice of breakfast or a sandwich lunch and shared use of living room and garden by arrangement. Bed linen and towels are provided. Please note that we don't provide cooking facilities and generally expect our guests to eat out in the evening. We can offer advice on a wide range of local eating places, and on where to hear live music, particularly jazz, in local pubs.
Walthamstow is a cosmopolitan area in North East London with plenty of pubs, restaurants, live music and a famous street market. Our home is 7 minutes walk from Walthamstow Central Station (zone 3) where buses, trains and Underground take you into Central London in 20 minutes. For advice on travel from Walthamstow Central to other London destinations please look at the Transport for London website.
We are happy to welcome guests at any time between 8am and midnight, as long as you tell us in advance when you expect to arrive.

Un grand merci à Julia et Ian pour leur hospitalité! Je suis restée 3 semaines et tout c'est très bien passé. Merci pour votre confiance!
Liebe Julia, lieber Ian, vielen lieben Dank für die schöne Zeit bei Euch. Die 3 Wochen waren sehr schön und perfekt! Danke für Eures Vertrauen!
Many thanks, Julia and Ian, for your hospitality! I had a very nice time at your home. Thanks for everything!
I was out most of the time enjoying my walks and discoveries in London and suburbs. But I felt happy at night returning to my small and cosy room for a good night's sleep. Julia prepared a good breakfast for me in the morning and we had some interesting conversations. Julia is an easy-going and helpful host. The facilities are basic but they were all I needed.
The room is very small, but comfortable and warm. Ian and Julia are fun hosts, generally up for a cup of tea and hearing about your adventures when you return every day. They invited me to share dinner a couple of times, we even attended a play at a nearby pub. They have a lot of maps and travel guides that you can borrow.
Walthamstow appears far from central London, but is really only about 20-25 minutes away on the Victoria line. The town has plenty of services (pubs, groceries, restaurants, library), and attractions like the William Morris Gallery and Vestry House Museum.
I would go back to stay with Julia and Ian. They were very friendly, serving breakfast and staying for conversation. It made me feel like a friend in their home, not a tourist.
Le séjour chez Julia et Ian a été très agréable : leur accueil est véritablement chaleureux et attentionné . Julia prendra soin de répondre à vos questions et de vous donner des conseils ! Le petit déjeuner est cuisiné le matin pour vous et est extra ! La chambre correspond au descriptif, et le logement proche du tube est facilement accessible.
Formidable experience ! Des personnes très gentilles et accueillantes. Je recommande vivement
