About This Listing
Our beautiful double room with a door to the garden will be your oasis of calm just a few minutes walk from bustling Brixton. On the ground floor of a traditional Victorian terrace, our flat is decorated with vintage furniture, mirrors and eclectic art. A modern kitchen and bathroom with deep bath and powerful shower will help to make your stay comfortable. Leading to a large garden, your bedroom has recently been freshly painted.
Brockwell Park lies (literally) over the back fence with its famous art deco lido, gym and yoga centre. Transport is fantastic: The flat is just 8 - 10 minutes walk to Brixton tube and 5 minutes to Herne Hill station as well as having 3 bus routes directly outside the flat.
Trendy new Brixton thrives with its multitude of bars and restaurants without forgetting its' steadfast multicultural base: Jamaican reggae plays in the market lined with Afghan grocers, Portuguese delis and Nigerian fabric stores. Here you can eat just about any food you can imagine, relax at the acclaimed Ritzy cinema or shop on the bustling high street. There is a large Sainsbury's supermarket just 3 minutes walk from us.
Brixton is on the Victoria line just 8 minutes from Victoria, 12 minutes from Oxford Circus and 20 minutes from Kings Cross. Mainline trains run from Herne Hill to Victoria, Blackfriars, Farringdon (15 minutes) and Kings Cross as well as quick trains out to the Kent Countryside.
A comfortable double bed with fluffy duvet, clean towels, a chest of drawers, small desk and hanging space are all provided. We will also provide you with a simple breakfast of toast, cereal, tea, coffee, fruit and juice. You will be given cupboard space so that you can feel free to use the kitchen as if it was your own home.
The lovely living room is available to use when we are not home.
The whole house including the living room during weekdays when we're at work.
Interaction with Guests
Interaction is really led by the guest. Some guests like to hang out in the room and do their own thing. Other guests like to chat and a have a cup of tea together. I've lived in the area for 15 years and am happy to give advice abut the local area and London.
Our house in as oasis or calm just 10 minutes from bustling Brixton. We have Brockwell Park (literally!) over the back fence which is great for exercising and getting some fresh air. Herne Hill, just 5 minutes away is a village enclave with a few cafes and a great sunday farmers market. Brixton is one of the great multicultural areas of this world and is reflected in the grocers, restaurants, sounds and smells that you would expect in an inner city suburb.
Brixton tube is 8 - 10 minute walk, Herne Hill overground rail is 5 minute walk. Busses 3, 96 and 37 are right outside the door and busses 168 and 2 are within 5 minutes walk. Many other busses go through Brixton High Street.
Other Things to Note
Brockwell Park has amenities such as tennis courts, a lido and gym, a BMX bike track, duck and wildlife ponds and great views of the city. Try also the Lido cafe and our local fashion designer Lowie - both of which are on the same street.
No smoking inside any area of the flat but you are most welcome to use the front or back garden.
My husband Patrick and I live here and will be sleeping in the next room. Usually we work on weekdays and so ask that you respect a reasonable level of noise after worker's bedtime.
There is no TV in the room but we have an Internet connection for you to download your favourite film and TV programs.
For those booking for a month or more we will provide you with the first 3 days of breakfast, after which we feel you might prefer to make your own. There is a large supermarket within 3 minutes walk.
Bronwyn and Patrick's flat is simply and tastefully decorated - a tranquil space in a surprisingly tranquil part of South London. I would strongly recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere quiet and calm to get back to after busy days in town! The room is just as described and though I wasn't there for long I felt very comfortable. Thanks both.
Bronwyn and Patrick are very uncomplicated. We felt very well in their house, the room was clean and the bed good.
Thank you for this nice stay!
Lovely people and lovely apartment in a great part of London.
We had a great time in London and Bronwyn was a great and very friendly host. We would stay there anytime again!
Bronwyn and Patrick were very friendly and helpful for our stay, the room was very clean and the bed was cosy. The location was very good, very close to supermarket and have a park nearby. Bus no.3 in front of the door making the travel to central London extremely easy. Nice place for a stay also in Brixton.
