About This Listing
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. 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 wardrobe with 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 etc available in the morning. Feel free to help yourself to teas and coffee.
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 socialise 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/Irish 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 :)
Le quartier est très bien situé à 5 minutes de la station Kenington, près d'un parc et à proximité d'un supermarché. Le logement est en tout point conforme à la description, très fonctionnel et propre avec un joli petit jardin fleuri devant et derrière . Nous n'avons pas pu rencontré Kathryn mais cela aurait été avec grand plaisir! Mais nous avons bien communiqué par internet et c'était très appréciable.
Merci beaucoup Kathryn, Alice était très contente de sa première expérience à Londres.
Directions provided were great and we had no trouble finding the apartment. Kathryn was not there when we arrived but was quick to respond to questions. Room and bathroom were clean. Use of the kitchen was nice and there was food you could make for breakfast. Kathryn said she would probably be out all week and she was, but she also made sure everything was cleaned and nice while she was gone.
Kathryn Unterkunft in London war großartig! Wir hatten uns auf Anhieb sehr wohlgefühlt - besonders, weil wir das gesamte Haus für die meiste Zeit für uns alleine hatten. Kathryn war leider sehr eingespannt und wir konnten uns nicht persönlich kennenlernen, aber das hatte Kathryn uns im Vorfeld geschrieben gehabt. War kein Problem für uns!
Die Beschreibung zur Unterkunft hat gepasst und die Schlüsselübergabe war sehr unproblematisch. Das Haus war tipp-topp sauber und alles in Schuss. Wifi funktionierte problemlos.
Die Lage hat uns sehr gefallen, da man (wenn man gut zu Fuß ist) auch bis Westminster oder Tower Bridge laufen kann (je ca. 20 Min). Bei schlechtem Wetter ist die Tube 5 Minuten entfernt. In der Nähe ist ein kleiner Park in dem man sich Abends von den Strapazen des Sightseeing erholen kann und andere Annehmlichkeiten (Einkaufsgelegenheiten und Pubs) sind um die Ecke. Nachts ist es sehr ruhig, sodass man nicht unbedingt die Großstadt London bemerkt hatte.
Es waren sehr schöne drei Nächte und wir kommen gerne wieder!
Vielen Dank, Kathryn und Ben, dass unser Urlaub mit Eurer Unterkunft so gut gestartet ist!
Il soggiorno da Kathryn è stato molto piacevole, la casa è molto carina, accogliente, luminosa e pulita, a due passi dalla metropolitana di Kenninton e ben collegata con il centro città, la zona poi è davvero tranquilla!
La colazione è abbondante e la cucina attrezzatissima.
C'è il wi-fi ben funzionante e Kathryn è molto disponibile sempre pronta per dare consigli utili.
Il bagno condiviso è molto comodo e pulito, la signora delle pulizie di Kathryn pulisce casa più volte la settimana.
The house was cozy and inviting, it feels like home when your stepping inside. Surrounding was a quiet neighbourhood allowing you to get a good night's rest and sleep well. Few minutes walk from the tube and you will be in the city center in no time. Bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen were all tidy and clean. Kathryn/Ben will always answer any doubts you have and give good advice. Recommended all future guests!
We've had a really nice time in Kathryn's and Ben's house: the room and bathroom were very clean, and we had all we needed for a good breakfast. Kathryn was always really nice in answering all the questions we had, really fast.
The house is a bit far from the centre, but you always have the underground or one of many buses at 5-10 minute walk. Very convenient!
Kathryn was an excellent host. Though we didn't see her much, what brief interactions we had with her were friendly and very helpful. We felt very safe walking to and from the Tube at night, and thought it was the perfect mix of urban and residential. The room was a bit small but perfect for European standards. Definitely recommend for future guests.

About the Host, Kathryn
Hi there :)
I am a 35 year old Scottish firefighter who loves to travel and try new things. I love meeting new people and air BNB has been an excellent experience.
This is our favorite place to eat and just a two minute walk from the house :O) This is a lovely pub with a wonderful menu and extensive wine list. It also helps that most main meals are under £10.Carter St London SE17
