Good public transport - local buses and National Express coach station 10 minutes walk away. Train station is a 15 minute walk straight down a pleasant cycle path starting opposite the station right to my house! Or get a taxi in 5 mins.
I've lived here for 20 years so it must be a nice place to be. My friends think my place is very welcoming, friendly & peaceful. A great place to stay for visiting the town and surrounding area.
Downstairs is an open plan sitting room to kitchen / diner area. Guests are welcome to make themselves comfortable here, use the lounge and make cups of tea or coffee. A microwave is available to heat food but I prefer that guests don't cook meals unless longer term stays which is necessary. There is one bathroom only, so please excercise consideration first thing in the morning...
Any visitors that guests want to invite to the house who are not paying guests must be agreed to with me first, and are not permitted in the guest bedroom.
There is no lock on the bedroom door - this is my home and I do Air bnb on the basis of mutual trust and goodwill.
Interaction with Guests
It all depends on how busy we both are! I enjoy chatting with my guests if they feel like it, but also appreciate that everyone needs their own space and time out.
Easy access for town and all amenities - a 5 minute walk to town centre and bus station, 15 minutes to the train station. The area is a mix of old and new, and has been regenerated in the last decade. Eclectic world shops locally, Waitrose on the doorstep, cinema, restaurants & sports facilities nearby.
Good public transport for buses in town centre, and trains.
I have a bicycle at the house which my guests are welcome use if they wish. Other Bicycle hire is available at the train station - booking in advance is necessary.
