About This Listing
"Perfect room; exceptional mattress, beautiful bedding" on quiet hillside street overlooking central London near the buzzing arty and multicultural areas for Camberwell (with its Art College) and Peckham (with its bustling market).
Large, comfortable double room in a typically English home, a Victorian terrace house with original features.
The room has heaps of charm. On a level of its own, secluded and private. Fresh crisp bed linens, clean towels, tea and coffee making facilities, are provided with plenty of storage in a chest of drawers and antique wardrobe.
This period Victorian property has a vintage feel, with fire places and roll-top bath, but it also has mod cons including free wireless broadband and an ipod docking station and hairdryer in your room. Please note there is no television in the room but you can view on the internet using wifi.
We have spent a lot of time renovating and making the place homey, attractive and practical and hope you enjoy your stay!
We have two shared bathrooms in the house. On the top floor next to your bedroom is a bathroom with walk-in shower, toilet and sink. On the floor below is the main bathroom (which we tend to use) which has a roll-top bath, toilet, and sink. Guests are very welcome to use either.
For guests that choose to eat breakfast, this is served downstairs in the dining room (please see photos).
Although we don't offer full kitchen cooking facilities (please see house rules) the kitchen is often available to sit in. We can heat up food for you to eat there.
We are a bit like a traditional English Bed and Breakfast and generally expect guests to be out and about in the day exploring and enjoying London. It gives us the chance to do some cleaning and make lots of noise without disturbing you. However there are exceptions to the rule and if you want to stay here please just let us know.
Interaction with Guests
We love to meet our guests and hear how your journies have been and make sure that you are comfortable and enjoy your time in London. So we love to see you for a brief chat but we understand how important it is to have a sense of your own space to relax. We invite you to make yourself at home and ask us for any advice or anything that you need to get the most out of your trip.
We will give you our mobile number numbers for advice if and when you need it.
Camberwell is a Victorian residential area in Zone 2 (out of 6 Zone that make up London) mainly built one to two hundred years ago. It was originally a village with water wells and springs that attracted holidaymakers rest, relaxation and health reasons.
Now, Camberwell and Peckham are the places to see young artists in London. Its a vibrant and creative multicultural area with numerous galleries, great bars and amazing local places to eat; The Peckham Refreshment Room (modern tapas in a lovely bar near the station) Ganapati (Southern Indian cuisine), The Begging Bowl (great Thai food), The Crooked Well (Michellin Recommended Gastro Pub), The Victoria and The Peckham Rye (good gastropubs if you wish to eat local), Andersen and Co (a great place for a slice of cake), Melange (for French chocolates), Petitou (for a light lunch) and Manze's Pie & Mash shop (a London institution) are all less than 10 minutes walk from the house.
Peckham Market is also open every day and also seven minutes walk from the house. The South London Gallery is at the end of the road and always has good temporary exhibitions.

Another lovely stay with Maddy and Dan's. Can not recommend this listing enough! So warm and comfortable, relaxing and welcoming. The area is really great too - even found a gluten free vegetarian crepe restaurant which suited by needs perfectly. I love staying here and already booked my next stay
I had an absolutely gorgeous stay with Maddy and dan. Very homely, clean and warm room and house. Dan was very accommodating explaining where everything was and local information too. Extras like a kettle and tea in the room was a lovely bonus and the bed was extremely comfortable. This was very much a home from home and definitely recommend this listing to other bookers. Thanks Maddy and dan for a lovely stay.
