Single Room Family Home, 20min to Centre
- Family/child friendly
- Parking available
Staying with us will feel like a homestay rather than a Bed and Breakfast.
We've been hosting visitors from around the world via other websites for many years. We have two children aged 13 and 16 who are also experienced hosts. We also have two cats that live outside.
Our flat is on the ground floor of a Victorian house on a quiet, residential street 200 metres from the Underground.
• Two minutes walk to Underground Station
• Warm, family hospitality
• Tea, coffee & toast for breakfast (Self-service)
You have use of our garden and wireless broadband, and free parking spaces are available within an easy walk.
A bright bedroom with a extra-wide single bed (105cm wide) that you share with some suitcases and family bookshelf. The single bed can sleep two average size people comfortably. Don't expect the same standard as a private room in a hostel, but it will be clean and relatively private. Suitable for one or two people.
There is now a single futon in the room for a third person.
Provided with fresh linens and towels.
Additional Space in Living Room: A comfortable double futon in a clean living and dining room. This can be used when you're in a group and you want space for the third/ fourth/fifth person. Because this is listed separately elsewhere, it can be booked separately. Please ask if you would like to use this before booking as this is not always in the room. We charge an additional £32 per couple for using this double futon.
---What to expect---
You will be staying in a lived-in family home this is reflected in the price. You have to be realistic with your expectations and not expect anything near pristine. We keep it clean, we love having people stay and we are interested in getting to know you and have you experience what it's like to be with a family.
None of the bedroom doors has a lock so if this is a concern for you please take your valuables when you go out. We cannot take responsibility for them.
Bounds Green is a pleasant and quiet neighbourhood, and due to its easy access to London Underground (Piccadilly Line), it will take you 30 minutes from our front door to Piccadilly Circus. The museums in South Kensington are also on the Piccadilly Line as are other popular spots like Trafalgar Square, British Museum and Covent Garden.
There are well-stocked grocery stores nearby, along with many take-aways and two pubs. If you like cafes, ice-creams and browsing, buses 102 and 299 will take you to nearby Muswell Hill, and if you like parks and stunning views across London we are twenty minutes’ walk from Alexandra Palace.
