About this listing
You're guaranteed a good nights sleep in our comfy double bedroom, and the flat is bright and welcoming. Situated in the vibrant west end, we're a short walk from many good bars, restaurants and parks. Subway and buses very short walk away.
Our bedroom to let is cosy, inviting and homely. Two people can happily stay here and it's situated in the fantastic West End. Our street is quiet and you'll sleep like a baby in our new double bed. Come and enjoy our home!
Our apartment is a distinctive sandstone tenement (c1895) and comes with stunning period high-ceilings.
Parking won't be a problem - there's plenty of spaces right outside and it's free. Our home is a top-floor flat and is therefore unsuitable for those with reduced mobility.
Guests will have access to a private double room and a shared living room, modern kitchen and bathroom. Washer is available. The only room in the house off-limits is our bedroom.
Modern gas cooker
Hot water bottle
We will be available to answer any questions and offer advice on the local area and amenities. We love to meet new people but at the same time we fully understand that guests will want their privacy most of the time. We will not provide breakfast as we both work and will probably be out the door before you even wake up. We will be present during your stay most of the time - if we are going to be away we will let you know and make arrangements for keys.
Our favourite thing about the neighbourhood is the huge variety of cafés, restaurants, bars and pleasant walks. Our favourite walk is just two minutes away on the River Kelvin which runs right through Glasgow's West End. You'll also love the Botanic Gardens which has the cutest tea room ever! There's loads of vintage boutiques and homeware stores dotted around the neighbourhood as well as delicious cheese shops and fish mongers. We love to walk in Mugdock Country Park which is a 15 minute drive away. It is stunning and ideal for runners and walking enthusiasts. For any classical music fans, the famous Grammy-winning violist William Primrose was born on our street in 1904 :)
Public transport is super easy here. We use the Underground to get into the city centre- it's a 7 minute journey. And it's only £1.60 for anywhere on the line. If you're doing multiple trips that day, it's best to get a Discovery Ticket for around £3.50. There are also plenty of bus routes (6 or 6a on Great Western Road or 60, 60a or 61 on Maryhill Road) which will take you into the city centre as well as out into the countryside. A bus ride will cost £1.90. Taxis are EXTREMELY cheap in Glasgow too. It'll cost no more than £5.00 to get into the city centre.
We are a very friendly couple and we can't wait to share our cosy home with you.
Modern gas cooker
Hot water bottle
Shampoos and conditioners
We'll always try to be here to welcome you and offer you a cup of tea or coffee and to answer any questions you have. However, if we can't be here for some reason we will leave keys for you and have compiled a short 'welcome pack' with essential details (wifi password, local restaurants, taxi numbers etc).
Other Things to Note
Although we do not allow pets in our apartment, it is important to note that there may be cats in the entrance hall, belonging to our neighbours. They do not enter our home but those with allergies may want to take this into consideration.
We are very laid back but have just a few tiny requests when you come and stay with us. Here they are..during the week we work so preferably not too loud into the early hours. No pets and no smoking. No eating on the couch and no shoes on the couch either. It's a nice couch... :) Thanks x
