About this listing
A room with character, in a cosy home away from home!
An eclectic design runs thought out the house, with elements from a varied mix of eras, styles and materials, creating a fluid, colourful, bohemian stylish environment.
Situated 20 minute walk to the city centre (5 min by bus or car) and 5 minutes walk to two of the most beautiful parks in Liverpool, Prince and Sefton Park. My home is also around the corner from the 2016 winner of Britain's leading contemporary art award, the Turner Prize. The L8 area has much special architectural and historic interest. I am also located 20 min walk or 5 min drive/cycle to Lark Lane, famous for its bohemian reputation, cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs, shops and art galleries.
I have a wonderful sunny garden, which guests are welcome to utilise and enjoy. When the weather is good, I enjoy doing yoga in the garden or just basking in the sun with the sound of rustling trees in your ears. There's a hammock which guest can use, which I often find an excellent way, to enjoy a book and take time out for yourself. I also have one of the best raspberry bushes in Liverpool, and your welcome to pick your own raspberries over the summer months.
I love cooking so there is fully equipped kitchen (Vegan and vegetarian friendly).
Directions: From Liverpool Airport & Liverpool City Centre get the 86 bus, get off at the Women's Hospital stop and my home is a few minutes walk away!
You will have access to a large living/dining room, kitchen, garden and there is two bathrooms (one next to the room and one downstairs)
Interaction with guests
I have extensive knowledge of the city Liverpool and would be happy to help out, with any enquires regarding sightseeing/getting around the city.
From the Georgian grandeur of Falkner Square to leafy Princes Park Toxteth, or L8 as it is known, is one of Liverpool’s most culturally diverse communities.
There are plans to transform Lodge Lane (five minute walk from my house) into a south Liverpool food destination. There are indeed Yemeni, Somali and Persian shops and cafes and apparently you can get a killer kebab. Also on Lodge Lane you can get good value world food from Liverpool 8 Superstore, which won the Food Retailer of the Year Award in 2015. It has a thrilling mix of cultures that shop there, banks of fruit and veg – from all corners of the world – that wrap round the front and side of the building, chatty, cheery service and the craziness of being able to buy all manner of household items and forty different kinds of lentil under one roof.
City hop on and off bikes, are situated a two minute walk from the house.
There is an excellent regular (every 5 mins) 86 bus service, which you can get on outside Liverpool Lime Street Station or John Lennon Airport and it will take you directly to the bottom of my road (Women's Hospital Stop), with a two minute walk to my house.
Taxis are cheap and I recommend Delta Taxis
