About this listing
I have now moved to bigger place .If you book this place, you would be coming to my Ramsgill Drive property.
What makes my place stand out from others is that I do not charge exorbitant prices you would end up when staying in Zone 1/2 and I am proud to offer exceptional value to guests staying with me.
Please note that I have now moved to bigger place - 5 Bedroom House with Kitchen /Dining Area and ground & first floor shower room for Guest only. Please refer to my other listing for the photos as I have moved & if you book this listing, you will be coming to the new place which is literally next road to Torbitt way and is same area - Newbury Park

I try my best to make guests stay very comfortable but If you feel that anything is not up to your requirement please share with me and I will try to rectify it rather than going back and leaving negative reviews without giving me a chance to sort it out.
Interaction with Guests
If you are looking to make a booking please could you share a few things about yourself. I like to get an impression of people before I accept bookings.
I will be glad to give you tips, transportation advice, and varied sorts of answers you may need, for everything else we have internet to search the stuff, Restaurant recommendations, pub locations,etc.
Our neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful.
There is one Indian Restaurant & Chicken & Chips Take Away with in 2 minutes of Walk from the flat. There is a nearby grocery store & newsagent shop. There is supermarket within 10 minutes walk from Newbury Park Station.
The flat is about 7 -10 mins walking distance from Newbury Park tube station (Zone 4 on central line) and is connected to Central London. (abt 35 minutes, direct connection from east London where I live)
There is a direct bus from tube station (numb(phone number hidden))
We have had few guests having difficulty commuting to airport because of the very early morning or last flights. Therefore Please check the flight timings before as the metro in London stops at midnight and start around 6 am and therefore commuting to and from the airport via public transport can be difficult between 12 midnight to 6am.
Other Things to Note
**Polite notice to all potential guests - Please note that whilst I endeavor to offer space to you all with utmost care, cleanliness (not professional though, but to certainly living standards) and honesty possible , my place is certainly NOT to be considered a hotel. I offer low priced private accommodation and should you think that something is not upto your mark/expectation, I would strongly request you to bring it up to my knowledge whilst you stay with me rather than going back and writing on a negative review as there's nothing worse than putting off someone without giving an opportunity to improve/rectify. **
The house has central heating and therefore I cannot control the temperature of one particular room. If you feel the guest room is warm - you can open the windows according to your requirements.
Please keep the above in mind while booking and do not feel negative about it.
