In the footsteps of William Blake..

House - Private room · Moncrieff St, London, SE15 5HL, United Kingdom

The Space

South London - south of the River - Zone 2

I am offering a double room with the use of a bathroom in my home which is conveniently located for Central London and the West End.

A simple breakfast is included and other meals may also be offered but at extra cost. Please do not assume that all meals are included or that cooked breakfasts are a given.

My guests are more than welcome to join me in the living room in the evenings. My aim is that my guests should feel 'at home' so the use of the piano and garden (Summer only) is welcomed.

Feel free to ask about Wholistic Therapies (services offered by a fully qualified health practitioner/acupuncturist - Member of the British Acupuncture Council). This is at extra cost.

We are located three stops (less than 15 minutes) away from London Bridge Station and less than 20 minutes away from Victoria Station by overland train. A new overland route opened in Dec. 2012 opening up east and west London. The house is situated three minutes away from the train station itself and opposite a Bus Station with buses leaving for all parts of London and beyond.

We are in a residential street just off the main high street which offers basic shopping amenities for the local community. This is a very colourful, vibrant, ethnically diverse neighbourhood in South East London so be sure to read up on the area and decide whether or not you want to be south of the river & are comfortable staying in this part of London before you book. This area is home to many artists and writers.

We are close to Peckham Rye Park, Nunhead Cemetery & the trendy Bellendon Road area. One can take a short bus ride to fashionable East Dulwich and Camberwell.

Frank's trendy roof top bar is worth a visit in the summer and the younger crowd enjoy Bar Story.

Bellendon Road is fun to visit and is within walking distance. There are a few good pubs & cafes that have appeared that has made staying local more appealing. ;-)

Ganapati
We are particularly proud of the small family run, highly acclaimed local South Indian Restaurant which is located a few blocks away and serves the best Keralan food in London (Diner's Choice 2010). It has become so popular that booking well in advance all year around has become essential. :-)

Be sure to visit the Victoria Inn the Montpellier, and the Petitou to eat. New bars such as the Peckham Springs and the Café/ Bar in the Bussey Building guarantee a fun time.

  • Nous avons passé un très bon séjour chez Liz, une maison typiquement anglaise, pleine de charme, chaleureuse et un accueil exceptionnel !
    Malgré des conditions météo peu clémentes, nous avons trouvé notre soleil quotidien à Peckham, il se nomme "Liz " : une personne rayonnante et très attachante, nous avons apprécié sa bonne humeur, ses délicates attentions, les délicieux petits déjeuners, ses expériences de vie, ses conversations passionnantes.... On s'est tout de suite senti "comme à la maison" ! Avec l'envie de revenir... Ou de ne plus repartir ! tellement ce fut une belle rencontre ... Quelle fabuleuse idée j'ai eu de réserver ce séjour sur airbnb chez cette hôtesse formidable ! Grâce à Liz (mais aussi à la gentillesse et la prévenance de Raph), ces quelques jours resteront à jamais gravés dans ma mémoire. Merci, merci :))) ! Vous l'aurez compris : si vous souhaitez communiquer, échanger et vivre une expérience inoubliable avec une personne passionnante, sensibles aux vraies valeurs et vraie ! Séjournez chez Liz !

  • LIz is a wonderful, welcoming host. She went above and beyond to help me prepare for my conference and then do a bit of sightseeing. And may lovely breakfasts that accommodated my unusual diet. The home is cozy and attractive. I was sorry I didn't have more time to explore Peckham. Maybe next time!

  • Very familar host, especially for me as a single traveller. Fantastic breakfast. Just a short 2 minutes walk to Bus and Train. Good connection to the city. A smartphone app like "London JP" is recommended to find the fastest way.
    I highly recommend this B&B.

  • Good breakfast! Very chatty helpful host. Close to the overground. Noise of train and planes could disturb an insomniac. Can be recommended.
