My home is 15 mins walk to both campuses of the University of Hertfordshire, Ocado, BT, Computer Centre etc. Welwyn Garden City Tesco HQ is nearby.
I do my best to create a fun and welcoming atmosphere, a lovely garden and a varied mix of guests.
Good for solo adventurers and business travellers... There is a 2nd (real!) mattress that can be used on the floor for a 2nd guest.
It has the luxury of a huge sofa to relax on, very smart decor and black-out curtains; ideal for night-shift workers!

The space
Built in 1958, my home is on a quiet street yet very close to the town centre. It is spacious and homely. The Living Room has the advantage of use of the settee.
With black-out curtains, it will be as dark as you choose; ideal for night-shift workers wanting a good sleep during the day.

Guest access
There is a shared bathroom and kitchen and a separate downstairs toilet. Additionally you can enjoy the garden if you like and the conservatory is mostly available to relax in. This has a large table in it that you could work at if you wished.

Other things to note
I do have a few regular guests who board weekly. They are professionals so are quiet and considerate.
There is "Resident Permit Parking only", between 8am and 6pm, every day (including Bank Holidays) except on Sundays. So if you cannot park on my drive for any reason between these hours, I will give you a visitor's parking permit. But please do ask if I forget to mention it when you arrive!

I love making things happen, especially if it's offbeat and fun. And there is a sense of 'theatre' about that statement having spend most of my career formerly in scenic prop-making for West End London shows (Phantom of the Opera being the most famous show I worked on) and latterly in developing memorable fun team building experiences for the Corporate Event industry. So creativity is very important to me. Connecting people is also a passion as you never know what spark might happen as a result. So to that end, I really enjoy entertaining, getting to understand what excites people and seeing how that passion can be harnessed. When it works, that's cause for celebration. I am a huge fan of Beethoven's piano sonatas and relentlessly try to perfect a couple of them on my piano, but I think it must be very tedious for a regular listener hearing the same old pieces trotted out; but I love it. I find it a way of switching off to the day's activities. The garden is a constant source of recreation, although my favourite statement is that "...shrubs, land fabric and paving slabs make it easy!" But it's still amazing how much time I spend titivating it. I'm sure I'm in denial of the time I actually spend in it. And should you come to stay as my guest, I hope you'll appreciate a rather large surprise there :-) I'm sure if someone else were to write this piece they would say something completely different! But to sum up, I specifically chose the word FUN to be the three letters on my car's numberplate, as life is too short to be dull! After 4 years of living with it, it still makes me smile when I approach the car.
