Where Ginger, the sacred Overground, ran
Through hipster cafes measureless to man
Down to a very lovely double bedroom.

We’d be extraordinarily glad to have you come visit us! We’ve a book-strewn gaff, with expansive garden full of plants I’ve managed to poison. The kitchen has a gas cooker, with heaps of Creuset cookery and Spode crockery - for you to whip up your own creations, or do join for what passes as my cooking.

I moved to London to work and had to spend 3 weeks in 3 different Airbnb's. I spent one week in each Airbnb and I felt the most comfortable in Padraig's place. Padraig and Caroline are really sweet and will be happy to help you if you ask for something

Interaction with guests
