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.

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.
"2012 is a very special year for Liverpool as the city celebrates 50 years of The Beatles with a spectacular, year-long programme of events"
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.
Frank and Dilly are lovely hosts, and Korky is such a sweet dog! Check in went smoothly, and we enjoyed our stay. The room is just as pictured, and the laundry room/kitchen is convenient. The bnb is just around the corner from a bus stop, and Dilly also provided us with the name of a cab service we could use. For food recommendations, we had a wonderful dining experience at The Monro on Duke St. We cannot wait to return to Liverpool!
Casa sporca, cane che entra sempre in stanza lasciando escrementi sul letto..bagno piccolo con acqua fredda. Pessima posizione per il centro e per il resto.. meno male che ho fatto amicizia con un simpatico topo che girava in cucina :)
Very nice people, lovely flat and convenient for transport in to city centre. Very comfy, cosy bed. Kitchen well equipped - everything I needed. Will definitely stay again and would recommend.
Frank and Dilly went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable and unforgettable as possible. They picked us up from the coach station upon arrival and gave us a small tour on the way to the loft including tips of places to visit and areas to eat/drink. The loft itself is quite spacious and has everything you need to make you feel at home. Frank and Dilly add special touches such as fresh flowers, milk and fresh juice. Frank also gave me a number to a cab company that was the cheapest I have used in England! We only stayed two nights and were sad to leave. Liverpool is a brilliant city and Frank and Dilly are amazing Hosts! We would recommend them to everyone looking for a little home away from home while in Liverpool!
Frank and Dilly's apartment was a fantastic place to stay. Dilly welcomed us so warmly when we arrived (as did Korky!), was very helpful with places to see, places to eat and how to get around town. We found the place very easily and it was a 10 pound taxi trip (on a bank holiday) from Lime street to the house. It is in a lovely area with Greenbank Park, Sefton Park and Princes Park all within walking distance. The apartment itself was lovely and comfortable - the kitchen was incredibly well stocked with everything required to cook and be self containing. The bathroom was a mini-ensuite and very convenient. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return and stay again should we be in the area.
We enjoyed a comfortable stay at the studio flat. Friendly hosts, a quiet location, a well equipped kitchen and the bed provided a good nights sleep. There is adequate space to use a baby travel cot and the washing machine, detergent and drying rack provided was great for us.
Access was a bit difficult with a buggy.
We loved the location of this comfortable B&B! The Sefton Park area of Liverpool is beautiful. Take time to walk through the park - one of the best in the city - and make sure to visit Lark Lane on the west side of the park. It’s a delightful street of unique shops and restaurants; there were so many appealing restaurants, we had a difficult time deciding where to eat. Wish we had stayed longer so we could have gone back.
And the B&B is an easy 15-minute bus ride into the city centre, which is highly recommended. Albert Dock is brilliant with so many free museums, shops, and restaurants. The city itself is chockfull of great pubs, bars, and restaurants. We took advantage of the great sightseeing information Frank and Dilly made available (specifically Liverpool Walks) and did a walking tour of the Liverpool pubs. It was fabulous - not only the pubs themselves, but the architecture and tour of the city centre. We covered almost all of the city centre and learned a lot about its history.
The room itself was very convenient. The space in the bedroom itself was a little tight, but we appreciated the wardrobe and chest of drawers so we could stow most of our things and make more space in the room. The bed was very comfortable, and there was plenty of heat for those chilly October mornings.
The kitchen was brilliant. We really loved being able to make our own breakfast with coffeemaker, teapot, toaster, and microwave/convection oven. There’s even a hob, if you want it. There was plenty of space for two people to move about in the kitchen as well. The washer/dryer was on the fritz while we were there, but Dilly was kind enough to let us use hers and plans to replace the deceased unit.
The bathroom was very small, and the plumbing a bit outdated. The toilet makes quite a racket after flushing, the sink is tiny (had to use the kitchen sink to wash my face so as not to drench the bathroom), and the hot water in the shower only works properly on one setting: medium pressure (low pressure will deliver only cold water, and high will cycle from cold to hot and back again).
Overall a wonderful experience. Dilly and Frank couldn’t be nicer, and were so willing to give advice which we were so happy to take. Thanks, Dilly!
Lovely place to come and stay. Right next to Sefton Park. We stayed there for two weeks and from the moment we arrived we received a friendly and warm reception. We were moving from London to Liverpool and the advice and local knowledge that Frank and his wife gave us made the transition a lot easier. Would totally recommend to anyone to anyone who is looking to get a genuine feel of Liverpool.
It was very nice to stay in the flat.
I was there for a week and the flat has everything you possibly need :a.o microwave,toaster washingmachine,tv,etc.There was milk and juice and rolls when I arrived.
Frank and Dilly are very friendly (and Corky is a lovely dog) and Frank knows everything about Liverpool you want to know.
The flat was clean and fresh and I loved staying there,have my own key and could come and go whenever I wanted.
I will certainly go back there if I go to Liverpool again.
We had a fabulous time staying at Franks. It felt like our own flat. Especially loved seeing the dog and when Frank was in we had some great chats on the way in and out.
Sefton park is an amazing area too.
