Beautiful period property with fireplaces in most rooms. The king sized front room has wood floors and double glazed sash windows. Twenty minutes walk from the station, the property includes wifi and a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom.

The space

The room is spacious and has cupboard space for storing clothes.

Guest access

You will be welcome to use the shared kitchen to prepare food, and the shared downstairs bathroom.

Interaction with guests

I'm often away, but my neighbours are able to help guests with most things.

Other things to note

If I have been away for a few days sometimes the house smells a little of smoke. I have tried to resolve this issue with air fresheners and other methods. Unfortunately, it is coming from my neighbours house and I can't find a way to change it. If you have difficulty with smoke, this may not be the property for you. The steps are quite steep, and might not be ideal for people with mobility issues or small children, particularly since the bathroom is downstairs. If you are interested in a longer term stay we can discuss that after you book your first trip to see whether we click and whether you like my place.

Sophie is a wonderful, generous host who has got everything set up perfectly for AirBnB-ers. The pre-arrival information she gave was extensive and clear, and she is very easy-going and generous with letting people use the entire house and it's amenities, forage in the garden, and even offering me her bike to use. The king bed is a dream to sleep in, the tv is set up with Netflix and other fun things and the back garden is a beautiful place to sit in the sun. There were a few small things that were not perfect (light flicking on and off in my room, hot water being a bit tricky at times) but it's a house, not a hotel, so it's to be expected. I stayed two weeks at Sophie's place and whilst Sophie has made a great AirBnB, the main issues are probably the neighbours who had loud arguments, parties, home renovations etc, often in the middle of the night... so perhaps not suitable for families with young children or those that like peace and quiet. Otherwise, it's like staying in a nice, cozy sharehouse in a residential neighbourhood of Peterborough.
