About this listing
Delightful, peaceful, attic room in a spacious Victorian house in the Uplands area. Comfortable sunny double bedroom. Centrally located for Swansea, the Bay, the Prom or a bus to the Gower Peninsula; an area of outstanding natural beauty.
This is large comfortable house in the Uplands where I live with 2 friendly lodgers and the cat Lily. We have 2 shared bathrooms, a spacious kitchen/ living area opening out onto the garden and a cosy living room with a woodburner. The guest room is a private and peaceful , seperate attic room at the top of the house. Comfy bed !
You are welcome to use the front living room and share the back living/ kitchen area. There is a large fridge and plenty of space for you to store your own provisions.
Interaction with Guests
I am often at home and happy to help you with suggestions and plans. However I work from home, so on weekdays, although I will be around I probably should be working ! At weekends I will have more time to sit and chat to you over a cup of tea !
Uplands is a bustling suburb of Swansea. At night it is very lively ! There is a monthly market and a yearly music festival;- ''Do not go Gently'' The local bars regularly have live music. The Chattery or The Garage have a variety of live sounds. Noahs Yard has great Jazz on a Monday. So much to do. . . . . .
The house is very central. You can stroll across Singleton park to Swansea University, wander to the bustling centre of Uplands, walk 10 mins down to the Prom and Swansea Bay. From there you can walk or cycle one way onto town or to the Marina or
get a bus or walk the other way to Mumbles.( 3 miles) You could go up the Meridian Tower and have a coffee while enjoying the amazing views. For days out on Gower the no 18 bus goes from the top of the road. I have maps that you can borrow. Buses go into Swansea from the Uplands regularly.
Other Things to Note
I dont provide breakfast for guests but there is bread and croissants in the freezer and butter and jam. Milk is in the fridge and a coffee and range of teas for your use. Make yourself at home. . . .
We like people to be very quiet and respectful between 11pm and 8am. Bring Slippers !. The floors on the ground floor are tiled and can get cold. I ask guests to leave their shoes at the bottom of the stairs. The rest of the house is carpeted.
Pauline and her place was awesome! She was very hospitable, kind, and welcoming. Her place exceeded my expectations, and I will definitely be back next time I stay in Swansea!
It's a really warm trip. Everything is perfect. The cat Lily is cute, Pauline
Is very kind. Every Friday, there is someone coming to clean the house. You will never regret to live here!!!
Pauline est vraiment une personne incroyable, pleine de sourire et d'énergie. Ça maison est vraiment très agréable et bien situé par rapport au centre ville, à la mer et au parc tout proche. Il y a tout les commerces nécessaire. Bref une adresse et une personne que je recommande chaleureusement.
Pauline is an amazing host, always wanting to help, to talk, very warm person. Her house is lovely and cozy, all clean, well served. She made me feel like home!!! :) Thanks Pauline, my son and I enjoyed every minute in your home!
Pauline is a warm and lovely person, she welcomed me into her home and made me feel as if I was home.
The room is clean and well presented, nice comfortable bed, very warm, being at the top of the house. As an attic room, the roof height was good. I speak from experience, that many attic rooms I have stayed in are functionally just a corridor.
I was in Swansea for work at the Quadrant shopping Centre and Pauline's location is just a short walk away, or a ten minute bus ride.
Street parking is a little crowded outside the property, but free parking can be found a few minute's walk away.
I would recommend Pauline's home to anyone who wishes a quite place to stay within easy reach of a busy city.
Pauline indeed has a cosy, warm attic room in a nice, quiet house and neighborhood.
She is a very positive, relaxed and warm person with excellent eye for travellers needs and interests.
Her hints and tips about things to see and experience were very helpful. We also enjoyed the company of the resident cat.
