The Space

Hello

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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

There is a street market and lots of great local pubs that do fabulous food.

Getting around

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.

  • Wir waren bereits ein zweites Mal bei Kathryn, diesmal mit der ganzen Familie. Wir hatten die beiden oberen Räume. Beide Räume sind sehr gemütlich, einer hat ein eigenes Bad, der andere einen Fernseher, sehr zur Freude unserer Töchter. Die Matratzen waren super!! Wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt. Der Weg zur U-Bahn beträgt nur etwa 10 Minuten und man ist in wenigen Minuten im Zentrum der Stadt. Dennoch ist die Wohngegend sehr ruhig. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen und kommen gerne wieder.

  • Great location, so close to central London. It felt like we were in a cottage in the country as it was so cosy and quiet. The room was exactly as expected from the photos, super clean and a big comfy bed. Great communication from the friendly hosts. Would definitely recommend.

  • Lovely place to rest! Very easy to reach with the underground, quiet surrounding area!
    And even if not possible to see Kathryn, the communication was very good and we felt absolutely at home! The bed (it's very important for us;-)!) was very big and so comfortable!!! Very nice place to enjoy London for 2 lovers ;-)!!!
    Next time we come to London, we'll try to come back here!

  • Kathryn's house feels like home. It is a bit tricky to find, but once you are there, it is hard to leave. Everything is made to make you feel comfortable. I recommend it. I look forward to coming back.

  • Warm and cosy welcome and accommodation to match! Kathryn and Ben were great hosts making us feel very welcome and the room and en-suite were both attractive and clean. Close to transport links in quiet location - we would definitely recommend it to anyone needing to stay close to attractions in London.

  • Excellent access to subway (5 min walk) and easy 30 min walk to downtown. Be sure to do a (website hidden) street view walk from the Kennington subway station to Marsland Close so you know what the route looks like.
    Bedroom with own bath is very large and bed is super comfortable. Micro-sink in bathroom has no mirror above it which can make shaving a little tricky and tub is better suited to baths than showers.

  • Good location near underground. I and my little son used nice bed with its own bathroom. warm and comfortable. mostly spend time outside but still, once we come back home, feels so comfortable!!

  • The bedroom and en-suite were lovely (the shower in particular was fabulous). The kitchen was lovely and well equipped. Kathryn provided us with cereals, bread, spreads, coffee and tea. The underground station was about 10 minute walk from the house, which made it easy to get around.

    I foolishly assumed that I would be able to find the house using (website hidden) maps, but ended up walking around the estate for about 30 minutes. So make sure you follow Kathryn's instructions and have her phone number on your mobile phone just in case you get lost!

  • Kathryn is a terrific host and a wonderful person! I had a great time at her place exploring London by day and chatting and drinking with Kathryn and her roommate at night. As a solo traveler, their hospitality and kindness made London a terrific experience for me. Also, Kathryn's home is lovely and the private room is spacious with a terrific tub and a brand new bed that is incredibly comfortable...what more could you ask for after walking around all day exploring London? I highly recommend staying at Kathryn's place!

  • We had a really nice stay at Kathryn's for New Year's Eve. The room was exactly as shown in the pictures, big and very comfortable. We had a lot of space and it is very practical to have your own bathroom ! The house as a whole is lovely, and our hosts were really nice. We really enjoyed talking with Ben & Kathryn, who also gave us a lot of tips on restaurants where to go, or on transportation in London. The location is perfect for a weekend, you can really get anywhere in London very easily thanks to the underground and the numerous buses.
