About this listing
Thanks for looking at my page. If you are interested in staying here, would you very kindly not book the room before I have confirmed the dates are free.
Do note that I can only accept reservations from people who have a completed profile and photo and at least two types of verification.
If you need any more information, please get in touch and I would be happy to write back!
Thanks very much.
The flat is in a quiet residential street off Clapham Road and between Oval and Stockwell tube stations. It’s approximately 5-10 minutes walk to Oval Cricket Ground and approx.15-20 minutes walk to Vauxhall and the river.
As well as the two tube stations (Oval is on the Northern Line; Stockwell is on the Victorian and Northern line), there are a couple of bus-stops within a few minutes walk where you can catch a number of buses able to take you into the centre of town and elsewhere incredibly quickly. Vauxhall overground station is also nearby.
There are two local supermarkets open until 11pm and a garage nearby.
Within walking distance there are two lovely pubs – The Fentiman Arms and The Canton Arms and a short bus or tube ride (one stop) will take you into Clapham, Kennington or Brixton where there are loads of bars and restaurants. A slightly longer bus ride (20 minutes or so) will take you into the heart of the West End.
I’ve lived in London all my life so will be happy to give as much advice as I can.
Perfect for a woman/man travelling alone, this is a private room which has a lovely comfortable single bed (standard UK size), cotton sheets and duvet. Extra covers available if you need them. The room isn’t large so probably not great if you are coming with loads of luggage but there is a wardrobe with drawers and a large sash window. Towels and hairdryer provided. Television/DVD player in the room with Freeview and free internet access (subject to download limit) also available.
There is also an iPod/iPhone dock with speakers.
Your private room is in a shared 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, centrally heated, period apartment. There are only three flats within the building and my neighbours are very nice. I live in the other bedroom. There are no pets. You are welcome to cook/use the kitchen (which has a large table) (shared) while you are here and there will be space in the fridge and a shelf in a cupboard for any groceries you purchase. At the moment, the living room is not accessible. The bathroom has a bath and shower (shared). If you are wanting something modern and snazzy, this probably isn't the place for you but it is comfortable and cosy and as it’s on the top floor (two flights up), there is no one living above. It is also incredibly bright.
INCLUDED IN THE PRICE:
A washing machine, free for guests staying longer than 4 nights. Otherwise £3 per load. (There is no dryer but there is a drying rack for hanging up clothes which can be set up in the kitchen). There is also the use of an iron and ironing board.
Do note that I do not include breakfast in order to keep the price of the room down but you can help yourself to tea and coffee.
You will need to buy an Oyster card when you arrive as public transport no longer accepts cash fares plus it will save you money.
I also have guide books and restaurant guides which you are free to borrow.
