About this listing
"Like sleeping on a cloud." That may be an exaggeration, but this room has a very comfortable bed and an airy view over the nearby back gardens toward the imposing gothic tower of St. John the Baptist Cathedral. It also has a single bed.
A large, cosy attic room; way up high, overlooking the peaceful street and beyond to the nearby cathedral. With its low angular ceilings and eclectic decor, it's a perfect hideaway for a couple, or large enough for a small family. The king-sized bed has been described as like "sleeping on a cloud," and there's a single bed tucked under the sloping ceiling too. There is even enough room to inflate an air mattress in this room to accommodate a larger family - (Airbandb actually began business with an air bed).
This quiet, characterful room also has a bureau desk which makes it an ideal space from which to catch up on work or study
We also have two other double rooms listed on AirB&B - The Island Room and The Red Room.
As well as the bathroom facilities, guests can make themselves at home here - use the kitchen, the washing machine and clothes line, or relax in the lovely, sunny garden (sun not always guaranteed) where smoking is permitted. Guests who want to cook their own meals can do so (within reason, depending on how many guests are staying at the time) and can have fridge and cupboard space if they desire. We also provide complimentary tea and coffee. There's a small breakfast bar in the kitchen, plenty of charging points, wifi, books to browse and newspapers to read.
We offer a simple breakfast of coffee, tea, toast and cereal which can be self-service at the breakfast bar if you are in a rush, or at the dining table for a more leisurely and social experience.
Note: In the evening the sitting room is our private space, but guests are welcome to use it during the day - it's a great place to sit and relax if you're waiting for a taxi for example.
Interaction with guests
I'm self-employed and work from home which allows me lots of flexibility if guests want to spend time socialising. I've lived in Norfolk for 25 years and Norwich for 14 so I know the county and the city very well and am always up for showing visitors around if they want. I can even take you on a real ale pub crawl, introduce you to some local live music or guide you on a walking tour around our very walkable and photogenic city with its the wonderful historical attractions.
Other things to note
We have on-street parking where a visitor's pass is required. The City Council have recently changed the way Visitor Parking is administrated but we can still offer you free overnight parking and all day parking with a scratch card for only £1 per day. There are also a couple of two hour bays on our street and there are no restrictions between 6.30pm and 8am Monday to Saturday and all day Sunday and Bank Holidays.
Our main rule is to make yourself at home, but please don't let Floyd the dog out of the dining room or garden where he mostly lives as he will eat the cats' food then chase them around the house. We do try and keep the pets out of our guest rooms so would request that you keep your bedroom door closed when you aren't in, unless you really like curious cats but PLEASE make sure they aren't hiding in your room. We are totally cool about smoking but don't encourage it in the house and definitely not in the bedrooms. In good weather both the front and back gardens are great places to have coffee and a cigarette, and we have a Plan B for rainy days.
In the evening the sitting room is our private space but guests are welcome to use it during the day - it's a great place to sit and relax if you're waiting for a taxi, for example.
Please Do NOT double-lock or chain the front door when you come in at night.

I'm an Australian, originally from Sydney, but I've lived in the fine city of Norwich UK for over 16 years, with my partner Sheila. Some find this funny - me being an Aussie and her called Sheila - which of course it is.
I've was a graphic designer for many years, but nowadays work as a musician - singing and playing guitar in my crazy band, The Rum Dogs.
Sheila and I share this large terrace house near Norwich city centre with Floyd the dog, two cats called Tigger and Frog, and an amazing assortment of guests from all over the UK and the world. We love travelling but don't get away nearly as much as we'd like, so running an Airbandb brings the world to us in between our travels. As well as Airbandb, we also host touring actors and stage crew performing at Norwich's Theatre Royal and Playhouse.
So - we love travel, music, art, photography, movies, books, pub quizzes, camper vans, surfing, cats, dogs and people.
