About this listing
Large room to let in shared house. Private room with lock and key in house with very clean shared kitchen and bathroom.
I have available a very large, clean and comfortable room with fast WIFI and cable TV, all included.
The home is located in travel zone 2, so you'll have easy access to all London has to offer. You'll be close to all transport links and many shops and markets.
Myself and partner Les will be happy to give you any insider tips on how to enjoy your time here.
We have two very cheeky cats and a tankful of happy fish, who are forever adding to our household.
The garden is south facing and wonderful for a relaxing time on a hot sunny day.
I also have a smaller double room to let in the house, which may be more reasonable if you are travelling on a budget. Please feel free to check advailability on that also and get in touch if you have any questions.
Guest with have access to their own private lockable room and a shared kitchen and bathroom, which are accessible at all times. However, I do ask that guests only cook and shower between the hours of 7am and 11pm
Interaction with Guests
I tend to work very long hours, so only normally around early in the morn and late in the evening and most weekends when I do all the cleaning! However, I'm contactable 24/7....
The street that we live is nice and peaceful. However, I love the fact that at the end of the street there's an abundance of shops of every kind and it's so easy to get around and about in London from here.
Finsbury Park is the closest tube station. There's also so many buses that stop at the end of the street and will take you direct to the West End and all it's attractions
I do have a list of house rules. All mainly common sense things, nothing too drastic! Main one is NO SMOKING. The rest are all pretty flexible.
I had not the chance to see Alison but Alison’s partner welcomed me and was really helpful and friendly. They let me leave my bag pack at their house early which was very helpful as we wanted a full day visiting London and as it was a strike day. The location is close to public transport The room where I stayed was, clean, bright and and airy with a large window and a very very comfortable double bed. The internet access is very good. The bathroom is large & clean. I really had a great stay at Alison’s pretty house and will definitely come back ! I truly recommend. Thanks again to my hosts.
We were made to feel welcome and provided with information relevant to use of facilities. Our accommodation was very comfortable and in line with the information we had been provided with. We found the neighbourhood quiet, access to public transport was good although sometimes found it hard to negotiate the bus system. Yes, we would most likely stay there again if we were to come to London.
L'accoglienza è stata cordiale. L'host è stato molto gentile e non ci ha fatto pesare il ritardo con cui siamo arrivati. La stanza era pulita, silenziosa e pulita.
Despite we knew that arrival time is after 16:00 she told us that we could come after 13:00 as we did. Unfortunatly her couple was sleeping and he did not hear the ring bell. That waiting time was very unpleasant. The location is very far away from the touristic spots. It is not a bed and breakfast. Only bed. She does not offer breakfast....only coffe boiling water and sugar. We had to buy our own food.
Alison let us leave our bags at her house early which was very helpful as we wanted a full day visiting London. The location was close to public transport and some good breakfast cafes.
We had a great stay at Alison's home. They were really friendly, uncomplicated and outgoing. The backyard was nice to eat outside and our room was beautiful. When we go to London again we would definitley return here.
