About this listing
This wonderful attic room has symmetrical gently polished wooden beams. The window is dressed with a delightful Roman blind. There is an old Victorian fireplace, and the bed is exceedingly comfy, with a memory foam mattress.
If you like to sit in bed and admire the view you'll love spending restful time in here.
The house has just been lovingly renovated and decorated to a high standard. Downstairs there is a living room, a dining room and a fully-equipped kitchen all available for your use. On the first floor there is a small bathroom featuring a loo and a sink. On your floor there is a brand new bathroom with a shower and bath.
The house is on a friendly street with lots of cats (it was once dubbed Britain's Friendliest Street!). It's in the Armley district of Leeds, which is a working class area with lots of character. The house is 2.5 miles from the centre of Leeds and one hour’s drive to York, Manchester,Sheffield. It’s close to the city of Bradford and about thirty minute's drive from Haworth, the home of the Brontes.
In Leeds City Centre you will love the shopping arcades such as the Victoria Quarter, the restaurants, theatres, art galleries, bars and clubs. Also, Leeds has a vibrant music scene. It's easy to get into the city centre. You could drive there in ten minutes, take a bus from the end of the street (two minutes' walk from the house) or take a taxi for around £5.
If you have a car (you can park it in the street outside the house) or take the train you can enjoy the choice of countryside and historical locations that you can visit with less than an hour's drive, and the stunning coastal views of the North East coast at two hour's drive.

I organised this for someone else who was visiting my company for a few days. Communication was quick and easy. Arrival was smooth, no problems and everything was as expected. The place was clean and well maintained. He didn't get a chance to use the kitchen, but everything looked OK. On his recommendation, I would use the place again for other visitors.
Had a fantastic time in Karren's property. The room was gorgeous and large, the bed super comfortable and everything you could possible need is provided. I booked very last minute but Karren responded quickly and set everything up with Richard who looked after the house and who was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again, thank you so much for the great experience!
Absolutely hassle free was my entire experience with Karren. She was superbly quick, everytime available for all my queries and gave all the info i required.
Errors are bound to happen in such arrangements and unbelievable how everything went well thanks to Karren for her way of dealing.
Though room was slightly on a smaller side price was worth the room and the room was aptly sized.
Best part was the bathroom which was compact and perfectly sized. Enjoyed the tub bath and wife was too happy about it.
All in all would love to recommend This place to anyone and karren and Richard were awesome hosts.
Great place to stay, lovely room, beautifully furnished, nice quiet house, easy to find, Karren and Richard were swift to respond and super-organised.
Big house with lots of communal areas (kitchen, dining and living room). Richard was very attentive at all times.
Karren was the most amazing host, as she kept in touch when she wasn't there for a few days and always made sure that I was comfortable. The atmosphere in the house was very friendly and casual, both with the hosts and the other guests. The room, as someone else has said on here already, is much bigger than in the pictures. It was clean and very comfortable. So were the kitchen and living areas. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone needing to stay in this area!

About the Host, Karren
I am a writer and publisher, and recently I moved from the UK to the Iberian peninsula with my partner Chris, for the climate and wonderful culture. We've been pioneering "slow travel" - living and working in a place for a few months to really savour the experience, and then moving on. We've been working as Airbnb hosts while we do this, and our first Airbnb home in Seville was an incredible success. We chose somewhere beautiful and very close to the main cultural attractions,and our guests adored it as much as we did. We stayed in Seville for seven months - it was paradise! - then we went to Portugal and lived by the sea at Cascais, and now we are living in the mountains near Malaga. We also realised that we could offer Chris's house in Leeds on Airbnb with the help of our neighbours and that's going very well indeed - people seem to appreciate a cosy home as an alternative to staying in a hotel. We also stay in other Airbnb homes a lot when we travel - I guess you could call us Airbnb addicts!
