The Space

Our house is a four bedroom semi-detached property on the 'Forest side' of Loughborough, within 5 minutes walking distance to the town centre and 2 minutes to the large University Campus / Loughborough College.

We live here (so use one bedroom), we use the smaller bedroom as our office space and that leaves two large double double bedrooms for short-term rental to anybody that may be interested.

Bedroom one; this is this listing on AirBnB and has a large, comfortable double bed, a double wardrobe and chest of drawers. The room is light and airy with a bay window and seated boxing.

Bedroom two; this is our other listing on AirBnB "Double bedroom (sofa bed) near Uni" and is part of the new extended section of the house. This is a fairly large room with a double sofa bed and shelving unit with baskets. There is no wardrobe unfortunately or drawers so not really suitable for any long term booking.

Both of these bedrooms are across the landing from the upstairs master bathroom, with exclusive use during any bookings if requested, that has a whirlpool bath and overhead electric shower.

Bedroom three (not currently listed) is our room with a double bed and adjoining en-suite with large walk in shower. In exceptional circumstances we will a) not be there or b) be willing to move our or go away for the duration of short bookings, usually using the income from your booking to do so, if you need the extra space to accommodate more people.

The upstairs master bathroom, with exclusive use during any bookings if requested, has a whirlpool bath and overhead electric shower.

The rest of the house is clean and tidy and very relaxing, with full access to anything a guest may wish to use. We strongly feel that when we have guests that they should feel comfortable and at home for however long they stay with us.

Our kitchen is the heart of the home and is brand new as of August 2013. It is large, modern, with underfloor heating and large picture windows onto the garden.

We do have a small dog in residence, most of the time, but she is harmless and very friendly.

There is WI-Fi, TVs with free-view (one 42" in the kitchen and one 32" in the lounge) a couple of large shelves full of DVD's and a surround sound audio system for watching them!

The garden is quite large and in a very sunny position (when the sun is out of course!) with a couple of areas to sit and relax and let the world go by. We have a large gas BBQ and outside seating and table for eating. We have a large pond with cascading waterfall to add to the relaxed feel of the garden, all visible from the new 'living area' of our brand new, modern kitchen.

There is space for parking if necessary, or parking permits available weekdays and Saturday's between 8am-6pm (the rest of the time there are no restrictions).

The house is a 20-25 minute walk to the train station here in Loughborough, with a bus stop just outside and a good number of bus routes around Loughborough. There are also great cycle routes (we have two bikes if anybody wishes to borrow them) and access to open countryside just a 20 minute walk in the opposite direction to the town. We are a 10-15 minute taxi ride to East Midlands Airport (and for additional cost we may be able to drop you off or collect you, if required)

Whilst we are only really offering the bedrooms, our 'snug' lounge does have a large sofa, ample floor space for sleeping bags and an airbed, if needed, so we could potentially accommodate a maximum of around 8-10 people short term, if required!

  • Neil & Dan were perfect hosts, very warm and welcoming. I had to amend my booking very short notive because of an emergency in my family and they were very understanding about it. The room was very nice as was the whole house and garden. I would stay with them anytime again.

  • Neil and Dan were wonderful to stay with, the house itself was beautiful and they were ideal hosts. They even got me a gift for as it was my birthday which was an unexpected and thoughtful touch. Highly recommended :)

  • Neil and Dan were charming, thoughtful hosts. The house itself, located minutes from both the university and the town centre, is very well presented and extremely modern, with all the appliances one could require for a stay of any length (the pictures are very accurate). The back garden is very colourful; a wonderful place to relax with a drink or two after a long day. Highly recommended.

  • Dan and Neil are very warm, welcoming and easy going hosts, without fuss!
    The house is lovely and with a cool interior design! I felt at home. It is walking distance to Loughborough University and the Design School.

  • Lovely large double bedroom, the bed was very comfortable and I really enjoyed my stay. I was impressed with all the modern features they had in the house such as the jacuzzi bath. I would definitely stay with Neil and Dan again.

  • In the last two months I had a great stay at Neil and Dan´s amazing house. The house is light-flooded, everything is very new and comfortable. You´ll find a huge dvd-collection and a log fire in the living room – amazing. Neil and Dan showed me a few amazing places in Loughborough, like the Beacon Hills where we went out with Lilly, the cute dog. They invited me to have dinner with them, drink wine and we went out to have a great dinner at a restaurant in Loughborough. You like pastries - Neil baked the best cakes. And the best risotto cooked definitely Dan;) Thanks a lot for the great stay Neil & Dan. We´ll see us again, I´m sure

  • Neil and Dan were heart warming and hospitable. I visited them two days before check in to meet them in person and take a look at the place. It was amazingly and fabulously nice. It matches the pictures shown and my family invaded the kitchen during the stay. Neil was nice to make us mince pie and sponge cake. The living room was equiped with speakers which was user friendly for my iphone. We used the lounge room for movie one of the nights, also surround speakers were amazing. Couldn't ask for more when i woke Neil at 3am for help as i had trouble getting cab for check out, to the train station. Neil took the extra mile to look for cab numbers. I would definitely stay at Neil and Dan's for many more night if not for my tight schedule. A cool, fashionable, modern, classical house to enjoy your stay. Do not hesitate to stay and interact with two friendly gentlemen.

  • Neil and Dan have a beautiful home and they are very kind and welcoming hosts. The guest bedroom was very comfortable and spacious. I'd definitely recommend staying with them!

    November 2013
  • Neil & Dan are great hosts, very forthcoming and caring. Their place is tidy, clean and their new extension offers a lot of room with a luxurious bathroom.
    I can recommend this place to all future guest! Especially to people who have never been to Loughborough, as Neil & Dan have a lot of tips and ideas what to do in and around Loughborough.
