Newly refurbished room in substantial Victorian family house; oak flooring & new double bed & mattress. Beautiful bathroom with large bathtub & power shower. Friendly, artistic, slightly untidy host family, one super friendly Jack Russell dog. Special weekly / monthly rates available.

The space

Our Airbnb rooms are comfortable & spacious with modern, neutral decoration. They are located on the top floor of our beautiful Victorian home away from the hustle & bustle of family life.

This is a great base to explore London, being within easy reach of the West End & City via Network Rail & Thameslink Services as well as offering a vibrant local neighbourhood vibe.

In addition to the usual tourism / family events visitors we would welcome guests who might work in London, who might be looking to relocate or are seeking a Monday to Friday base. Our location would also provide an excellent base for potential students & their parent(s) who are looking at universities / colleges in the London area.

We have 2 double rooms available & would be happy to accommodate a small family.

We have a minimum 2 night stay policy but are happy to offer weekly / monthly discounts.

Guest access

Guests will have access to a large fully equipped bathroom for guest use only & tea & coffee making facilities in their room. Guest bedrooms are located at the top of the house. accessed via a couple of flights of stairs. They are therefore private, quiet & away from the hustle & bustle of family life.

Interaction with guests

We have lived in London for many years and love the theatre and exhibitions, so if we are around we'd be happy to provide recommendations for exhibitions, theatre & local restaurants etc.

Other things to note

There are many places of interest within walking distance. These include the amazing Dulwich Picture Gallery, beautiful local parks including Brockwell Park with 2 lakes, a delightful walled garden & iconic 1950's Lido with its highly recommended cafe.There is a vibrant Farmers' Market every Sunday morning outside Herne Hill Station on Railton Road. The cutting edge art & music venues, bars & food markets of Peckham & Brixton are only a short bus ride away, as are the delights of Brixton Village with its funky vibe.

As a first airbnb experience, this was wonderful. Rosie and Boudicca welcomed me and were very helpful and friendly. The guest room and bathroom were hotel standard, and the location is perfect for Herne Hill. The Jack Russell dog is also friendly!

A great room in a great location. The family was very friendly. You should be aware there is a relatively complicated security system to manage, but after the first day you'll get the hang of it. All in all, a wonderful place.

Hosts and room were great. A large bedroom with a very comfortable bed. It is at the top of the house meaning there are quite a few stairs to climb. Great bathroom next door. Very convenient for the local train station that has very good links into London. Really enjoyed our stay.

A really nice house in a lovely neighbourhood! Location was great for our needs - just a few minutes walk to Herne Hill train station (with regular trains to Victoria), and a variety of nice coffee shops and the excellent farmers market on the Sunday! The room was bright, comfortable and spaceous with a large bathroom right beside it. The quiet area and comfy bed made for a great nights sleep! Glyn and his family made us feel really welcome and had lots of helpful suggestions of things to do and where to eat/drink etc.
