Our home is only a 4 minute walk to Manor House tube station (Zone 2) and so only 10 mins (Victoria Line) or 12 mins (Piccadilly Line) to Central London.
The room has two large sash windows allowing lots of natural light. The room has lots of character with its Victorian fireplace and high ceiling. The room is discounted as it currently contains a library of books and some personal items under the bed. N.B The room is clean, and the books have been dusted/vacuumed.
Your bedroom is located adjacent to a pretty spa/shower bathroom which is flooded with natural light. There are two other showers available to guests to use.
As well as the bedroom, guests have access to an upstairs lounge and kitchen, as well as the garden at the rear of the house
Interaction with guests
As owner, I will be here in the house and am always delighted to help guests with any questions or suggestions on where to shop and eat etc...
Other things to note
You will be sharing our home with our family and some other guests, who are all very friendly. Although, the house is surprisingly very quiet, as most people are out during the day (and also evenings). Also, the large size of the house - a double fronted house with three levels, means you will not often see other people who live here. We aim to ensure your stay runs smoothly - and are happy to help with any requests.
We have only a few house rules:
Respect other guests
Lock front door securely when you get in
Wash your dishes promptly after use

As a New Zealander I have a great love of the outdoors and anything sports related.
I spent my entire childhood either competing as a equestrian show-jumper or climbing mountains in New Zealand.
My skill as a Chartered Accountant and passion for sport inspired me to set up two sports charities for children here in London and I also help run our local athletic club, which is right on our doorstep - in Finsbury Park. I coach the young children three days a week.
As a UK Athletics coach, it has been a very exciting time in London, as since the Olympic Games, I have had the opportunity to work alongside several international coaches who coached the Great Britain Olympic athletic team. As a result I have become a "mad guru" on running technique and injury prevention, which is always a useful skill to have - for oneself especially!! But of course, I am very happy to offer guidance and tips to others, should they ask.
I speak fluent French and holiday regularly in southern France and Spain, where I have Spanish family. We also love visiting other countries, and hope to have another holiday in the USA soon....
My motto in life: Happiness comes from helping others - especially when it comes from the heart.
