About this listing
This studio flat is situated within a family home on the first floor of a Victorian semi detached house in the quiet, leafy area of Sefton Park, Liverpool 17. The accommodation has all the advantages of lodgings (all inclusive utility bills, security of landlord on site, friendly people around) but also has the luxury of being self-contained to allow for perfect privacy and relaxation once the flat door closes behind you.
The wi-fi internet access, central heating (morning and evening in winter and as necessary in summer months) and electricity are all inclusive. There is a stand alone back up heater in the flat if heat is needed at times when the central heating has gone off.
This is a strictly no smoking property.
The flat is self-contained and has 3 rooms; a bedsitting room (with double bed and TV), a kitchen and an ensuite shower room/toilet. Entry to the flat is through the shared hallway and staircase of the house.
Lovely view of trees and back gardens from the flat.
The room has a double bed and long term single guests may occasionally have a friend to stay for one or two nights at a time by prior arrangement with Frank or Dilly. No mid-week late night entertaining or late night parties please!
There is a friendly collie dog called 'Korky' living in the house.
There are chairs in the front garden and a small lawn that can be used if guests want to sit out on a sunny day.
There is on-street parking and there is easy bus access to Liverpool City Centre, (which is only a couple of miles away), the airport, and Lime Street station.

The beautiful Sefton Park - 2 mins walk.
Sefton Park is arguably the best known and most loved by locals. The magnificent 200-acre Park looks like a natural landscape rather than a man-made park. In spring the sight of millions of golden daffodils around the lake draws residents from across the city and carpets of bluebells give an impression of rural permanence.
The park features many distinctive curved paths and driveways and beech and other indigenous British trees abound. Amongst the park's many features are a boating lake, replica statues of Eros and Peter Pan and a café. The park is also home to the famous Palm House, a fabulous glass-panelled building that has been restored to its former glory.
Liverpool's annual events include Mathew Street Festival, John Smith's Grand National, Southport Air Show, Liverpool Sound City, Liverpool Biennial (every two years 2010, 2012 etc) and Creamfields.
Liverpool also has a mixture of Arts and Culture activity at our Art Galleries and Museums, Architecture festivals, special tours of the city including the famous Magical Mystery Tour.
Liverpool is famous for its music and a fantastic trip to one of our amazing venues including watching the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra at the Philharmonic Hall or visiting the Southport Floral Hall or Wirral's Floral Pavillion.
Please ask Frank if you need to know anything about Liverpool, from places to visit to finding the bus stop (we have lived here 30 years and know Liverpool well).
Access to rooms other than the hallway and flat by invitation only.
Quiet after 11 pm please (ie TV on low is OK, loud music not OK).
Please creep in quietly if coming back late at night.
Strictly no smoking.
No extra guests please.

Relax and have fun!

Our stay was again very pleasant and enjoyable. The flat is clean and quiet - the kitchen very convenient - it is great to be able to cook meals when travelling. There was also a washing machine in the kitchen this time. We always felt able to approach Dilly with anything regarding our stay - she is very helpful. The fresh flowers made us feel very welcome. We look forward to staying again in the future. Thank you.
Dilly greeted us when we arrived together with Korky, the dog! Both were very friendly without being intrusive. We didn't see Frank during our stay. The property was exactly as advertised and suited us perfectly, as we were visiting family in Liverpool. We only had one mishap during our stay, when the front door key sheared off in the lock . We were very late back that night, but Dilly didn't seem put out and provided a new key for us the next morning.
The house is in a tree lined avenue and we were worried that we may not get a parking place, but our fears were unfounded; we always found one.
Frank and Dilly's studio flat is extremely good value - it's bigger than it looks in the photos due to the high ceilings. It's very well set up for visitors - something I strongly appreciated, as I was house bound for most of my stay due to a poorly timed flu. If you need help they are available but you also have a great deal of privacy and the flat is very quiet and restful. I would highly recommend it.
We had an excellent stay at Frank and Dilly's studio flat. The room was spacious and the facilities were great (having our own bathroom and kitchen was perfect).
It is a short walk to Lark Lane (my favourite place in Liverpool), which has many reasonably priced restaurants. And it's only a bus ride into the city.
Communication was great throughout. The hosts were incredibly helpful as well.
We highly recommend this place to stay!
The location is excellent being very handy for buses into town or walking to Sefton Park or the very interesting Lark Lane. Dilly and Frank were most welcoming and Corky the dog has a wonderful 'smile'. The studio was comfortable, spacious and quiet and we also appreciated the milk and juice in the fridge.
Good location great to have own kitchen and bathroom.even better a place to take our little dog she loved Sefton park and Crosby beach .
Lark lane was near by and we found a pub that would let us take the dog too the lodge nice steak.frank dilly and corky were all friendly.
21 giorni trascorsi senza problemi. Tutto come da descrizione, Dilly e Frank sono davvero delle brave persone e si sono messi a disposizione per darci tutte le informazioni di cui avevamo bisogno. Il quartiere è molto tranquillo ed è ben collegato con il centro raggiungibile in circa 10/15 minuti con il bus. Ottima esperienza!
