"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 a 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 hairdryer in your room. Please note there is no television in the room but you can view on the internet using wifi if you have your own device.
We have spent a lot of time renovating and making the place homey, attractive and practical and hope you enjoy your stay here.
We have two shared bathrooms in the house. On the floor next to your bedroom is the main bathroom which has a roll-top bath, toilet, and sink. On the top floor is a bathroom with walk-in shower, 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). Breakfast is an additional £5 per day.
Although we don't offer full kitchen facilities on exceptions we can heat up food for you.
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 if you want to stay here please just let us know. Its no problem.

I stayed for two nights and had a positive experience. The house in updated woody old style, was clean and the bed very comfortable. Maddy, Daniel and Fabian their little son, are very charming. Maddy is fair and obliging. She will take time to ask you any need and will be applied to explain how move around and where to eat. It was a pleasant time.
It was great !!
Maddy & Daniel was very kind and little Fabien was very cute :)
It was the best of all that I could get to the tourist attractions by bus very easily.
I'm highly recommend !!
Maddy and Daniel were good hosts and very helpful. The room was very comfortable, and the house is in a nice area so not far to walk to the best bits of Peckham.
Had a lovely stay in London, the hosts were super friendly and the house was perfect!
Im not sure where to start with this family. First off, they're incredible parents. There son fabian is a gem, and they were always welcoming. The room was so nice, and it comes with a hot pot on your bedside for tea/coffee. Every morning I was greeted with a clean cup for my tea every day.(Its the little details that matter) I should also mention the wifi is fast. So for this of you with internet heavy jobs, hath no fear! Madi and Dan are the type of people that if you were to leave your expensive diamond earrings behind, you would receive them immediately in the mail ;) . You can really trust them. Some of the most genuine people I've ever met. Thanks for taking me in guys!
Petite maison charmante à quelques encablures de Londres. Le bus à proximité nous mène au centre de Londres en 30 minutes environ.
Maddy la maitresse de maison s'est bien occupée de notre accueil, a été très prévenante et attentive à nos souhaits. Et nous a fait découvrir à proximité des lieux à visiter, des restaurants où nous rendre. Super, à recommander !

We are a creative English-Australian couple (Printer/ Designer and TV Documentary director) who having loving travelling over many years ourselves have recently settled down and welcomed one year old Fabian to our family. Hence now we're not travelling so much for a while and instead are looking forward to hearing other people's holiday and travelling stories for a while.
