The Space

Located very close to Greenwich and Blackheath, this lovely bright room has a very comfortable double bed and a large flatscreen TV. There is plenty of storage. Downstairs is a Shower room with power shower, which is shared with two others and also a bathroom. The room has an iron/ironing board and kettle for tea/coffee and a hairdrier. There are electric adaptors for anyone with foreign plugs, shoe brushing kit and luggage scales, so you don't need to pack any of this. There is wireless broadband and a clock radio/iPod dock/charger are also included. Fresh towels are provided (free of charge) although some people prefer to use their own. For anyone traveling "super light" with hand luggage only, I can provide shampoo/shower gel/toothpaste etc, so all you have to bring is your toothbrush. Please request this in advance. There is a "help yourself" breakfast of cereal, toast and tea/ coffee included in the price. As I am a professional opera singer, and antique dealer, you will be sharing my house with a grand piano (you may hear it occasionally) and some really nice antiques. Please note that there is no smoking in the house, but you are welcome to smoke in the garden. There is a microwave for you to heat up meals if you prefer not to eat out all the time. Travel is amazing - Ladywell station is moments away, with London Bridge only 16 mins (with its connections to the underground system) and Charing Cross or Cannon St only 22 mins. The DLR is one stop away at Lewisham. Greenwich is a seven-minute bus ride, and the DLR will take you to Stratford in less than half an hour. There are loads of night buses too for those late nights! There is free parking in the nearby roads night time and from Friday evening until Early on Monday morning, As I work full time, I can't always be at home for your arrival, but if I'm not, I can leave you a key outside, as there is a key safe. Full instructions will be given after booking is confirmed. I am looking forward to making you welcome! I also have another room available, so check it out too - the heading is "Well located comfortable charm" https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/334310 I look forward to welcoming you!

  • My daughter and I spent a week in Allan's home and could not have asked for more in accommodations. We were a quick train ride to the center of London and just a minutes walk from the train station. The room was very comfortable and we were well stocked with supplies for breakfast/coffee/tea/water. If I ever return to London I hope to stay with Allan again.

  • My friend and I had a amazing experience of 8 days in Allan's house.
    The location is very well and really close to train station like around 2-4mins. It takes around 10-15 mins to London Bridge.
    The room is exactly the same as the pics, cozy, comfortable, beautiful and private.
    It provides anything you need on the room so that you can only bring a small suit case. The kitchen is also perfect, big microwave, big fridge. And they r all clean.
    Also, Allan is a really amazing host, informative, funny, friendly and caring.
    He would try his best to answer your question about London and recommend you many good place.
    And then there is one thing makes me feel so happy was I broke my feet when I was visiting London, he gave me many advice like how to make my feet feel better and what should I do. He even gave me a pack of medicine and some stuff to protect my feet not to get hurt again for free, it makes me feel like this host is super nice and kind.
    We would live here again if we come visit London again.
    We highly recommend this room to everyone.

  • I had a wonderful 4 week stay with Allan and definately recommend him and his place! Its the perfect BnB experience - the room is lovely, full of light and charmingly decorated with all details covered - from a kettle to a set of guidebooks. Allan himself is super nice, full of advice and interesting to chat to :) The station is but a dash away and easy to navigate with luggage. I loved the local cafes and parks (you can borrow a picnic rug). A great, safe suburban spot - I would love to stay again :)

  • Allan is a Great Host! The room is perfect. The flat is just 2 min walk from the Ladywell Station, and 15 min (by train) from London Bridge.

  • This is a great place to stay. Convenient for Ladywell station and for Lewisham shops and for the hospital where I was working for the week.

  • Allan's home and lovely room is exactly described as shown. The welcome is warm, the train station just across the road and every creature comfort is generously supplied. A delightful place to lay your head and restore your soul - you won't be disappointed if you choose to stay here. Terrific value for money.

  • I had a wonderful experience staying in Allan's house. His house impressed me with a great collection of arts and handicrafts. The room, kitchen and bathroom were very organised, clean and tidy. The decoration also reflects Allan's good taste. I really enjoyed my stay there as if I was in boutique hotel. Allan was a kind host who also respected my privacy all the times.

  • Allan's house is a great place to stay, I have been in London many times in life for my great personal luck. The room is clean, well decorated, has privacy, great bed, flat screem TV and a toalete almost for only you.
    The house is in front of Ladaywell Station, 25 min by train to Charing Cross, much nicer than the tube itself, we can sit down all the overground way.
    Ladywell is a green and friendly village, it smells a taste of great English contryside, much nicer than places closer to the city!
    Allan is a great host, intelligent and a very kind person, he is an artist! He even helped to deal with untrustful minicabs companies in last journey to Heathrow! Many thanks Allan, your place is the best!

  • This is the best kept secret in London. The environment is lovely. Allan has exquisite taste; if you are creative, this is the environment for you. Allan is an also an excellent cook - the house always smelled like Christmas with something mouthwatering bubbling on the stove. He knowledgeable about London and can answer almost any question you have. It's a snap to get to the center of the city. The small touches were telling: a teapot, guidebooks and a umbrella in my room. But the best thing about this bnb is Allan himself. This host is cultured, kind, well-traveled and thoughtful. This is the best bnb I've ever stayed at. Book early, though; Allan is in demand!
