About This Listing
Our room with private bathroom has a HUGE very comfortable bed. The bed measures 180/200cm with a sprung mattress and memory foam topper new as of Jan 2014. The bath has a freestanding roll top bath and the bubble bath required to go with it!
We have a three bedroom house just a short walk from Kennington tube station where you get access to both branches of the northern line. Providing excellent transport links to Waterloo, Kings Cross and the International Rail station St Pancras. There are also bus's that go just about anywhere in London from the Walworth road (three minute walk). If you are here to see Parliament and The London Eye you can walk there and stop for a bite on the Southbank. There are three rooms available this room is a double on the first floor with dresser and coat hangers for hanging clothes.
Lovely garden and patio area. The house is back from any roads so there is no traffic noise :) If you require meals this can be arranged, there will be breakfast cereal, bread for toast, jams, eggs etc available in the morning. Feel free to help yourself to teas and coffee.
There is an en-suite bathroom in this room.
There is an A-Z in the room to help you find your way about. We are happy to show you the local pub which has an excellent wine list and great menu all at a good price.
Also Parking can be arranged for an additional £10 a day notice required.
We love to meet new people and socialize however sometimes we can be busy with our work and study. We do like to travel ourselves and may on occasion be out of town but always contactable, with friends nearby if required. When we are around we do pride ourselves on our friendly Scottish hospitality and do strive to make your stay feel as close to home as possible.
Kathryn and Ben
This is your home while travelling and you should treat it as such :)
You will have full access to the kitchen and livingroom while you visit. Bens room is off the livingroom so we tend to move to the kitchen to keep talking after 10pm on weeknights.
Interaction with Guests
If i am in town i am always up for a chat etc however sometimes i have a paper due and can be busy. I work full time as a firefighter and i am studying part time for my masters so sometimes its hectic but most of the time i like a good chat. I would like to say though that it is not a hotel and its our home so the experience is very different to that of a hotel. I will try and help you in any way i can but i dont make a very good concierge. There are lots of leaflets and ideas for things to do in London on the table in the kitchen.
There is a street market and lots of great local pubs that do fabulous food.
This is perhaps the best neighbourhood in London for accessing the rest of London. There are good transport links for all of London including tube and buses.
There is no smoking in the house but we have a lovely area outside in the garden with table and chairs where that we ask you to smoke instead.
Other than that we are very easy going and ask only that you clean up after yourself if you use the kitchen, we have a dishwasher to make that easier :)
This was one of the best places I have stayed. Super easy to get to, quiet neighbourhood with an under 10 min walk from tube station. House is so well set up, had no need to ask for anything. Kathryn is an excellent host with great communication and Ben who greeted us was awesome and gave great recommendation for a touristy activity. Being a runner it was easy to clock up a few kms in the neighbourhood but with only being one tube station away from Westminster, quite easy to pop in and run along the Thames. Supermarket near by as well as fish and chip shop. I was preparing to run the marathon and my carb loading was made so much easier having use of the kitchen. Excellent bath! Comfy big bed. Would return in a heartbeat if ever in London again. Felt safe walking back at night also. City bikes also nearby so could easy ride into the city as well. Fabulous.
The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. We never met Kathryn but she coordinated getting us the key and explaining everything we needed to know about the house.
Kathryn habite un quartier très calme à seulement 5 mns du métro et qui dessert le centre de Londres en quelques minutes!!!!!! Kathryn est très disponible et répond à tous les messages en quelques heures au plus !!!!!! Elle nous a beaucoup aidés avant notre voyage à Londres et donne beaucoup de conseils!!!!!! Son logement est très agréable très propre les chambres sont préparés avant notre arrivée et sa femme de ménage est présente tous les jours! je recommande cette adresse à toutes personnes qui souhaite visiter Londres!!!!!!
Le point fort de ce logement est sans contester le lit qui est vraiment très confortable et spacieux avec une TV grand écran. La proximité du métro (5 min à pied) est aussi un atout considérable. Nous n'avons été accueilli par la femme de ménage qui est vraiment très sympathique. D'un point vu de la tranquillité le quartier est calme mais dépourvu de charme.
