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 :)
The The room was very cozy and clean. We felt comfortable and always slept very well in the flower power sheets. breakfast was also very tasty and enjoyable. We would have loved to stay longer and recommend this place.
Die Unterkunft liegt ca. 5 Minuten Fußmarsch von der U-Bahn Station Kennington (Northern Line) entfernt. Diese Lage südlich der Themse ist ziemlich gut, da die dort verkehrende Northern Line auf einer westlichen und einer östlichen Route viele zentrale Punkte direkt oder mit nur einem Umstieg erreichen lässt.
Bezüglich des Viertels ist die Lage der Wohnung als mittelmäßig einzuschätzen. Diese ist in einer Art Apartmentkomplex/Wohnsiedlung gelegen und die es gibt schönere Ecken in London. Begibt man sich jedoch in die Wohnung ist alles in Ordnung. Das Badezimmer ist ziemlich neu, das Zimmer und das Bett sind groß genug. Zudem ist die Küche mit allem ausgestattet, was man zum Kochen braucht! Ein Supermarkt befindet sich unweit der U-Bahn Station, sodass ideal Lebensmittel erworben werden können und man in der Wohnung essen kann.
Negativ zu erwähnen ist lediglich die Hellhörigkeit des Hauses, da man quasi jedes öffnen einer Tür oder das Hinauf- bzw. Hinuntergehen auf der Treppe deutlich hören kann. Wer hier nicht so empfindlich ist und es nicht stört sich in der angesprochenen Wohnsiedlung einzuquartieren, der macht hier nichts falsch.
The room was very clean and lovely!
Kennington is a good area to easily access the centre of the town.
My stay at Kathryn's house was very comfortable. The location is very handy, on the Northern Line before it branches so a choice of directions. Location is really quiet at night so I slept well. Also when I forgot a couple of things there when I left Ben kindly posted them to me - thank you Ben!
The room is, as advertised, a nice bright room. A stones throw from the tube station, we found it easy to get everywhere in the city quickly. We had a comfortable and enjoyable stay here. The place was easy to find with the instructions Kathryn left and she was always happy to recommend restaurants and such in the area. Note that there's a main road to the east of the apartment where there are supermarkets and restaurants that we only discovered on our last night. Well worth it as we always struggled to find supermarkets in the city.
Posizione della casa fantastica, a due passi dalla metro di Kennington (3 fermate dal centro). La casa è davvero carina, dotata di tutto il necessario persino per fare la colazione. La casa è su due piani con una cucina attrezzatissima.
Ho preso la stanza con il bagno condiviso ma non c'era nessun altro, quindi l'ho utilizzato solo io. A fianco della mia stanza ce n'era un'altra con il bagno privato in cui sono arrivate due persone che ho incontrato solo una volta..Kathrin è stata davvero cordiale, quando ho chiesto informazioni mi ha risposto immediatamente.. ci tornerò presto! :) un consiglio, controllate con Street View la strada per raggiungere la casa la prima volta, io ci ho messo un'ora prima di trovarla perché I numeri civici non sono affiancati.
Lovely cosy appartment close to citycenter, underground nearby. The perfect location to explore london in every way! Allthough kathryn was not home she made sure we had everything we needed. She even arranged a flexible check-in and -out.

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.
