Amazing central London location, this cosy double room is available for both short and long term bookings in a house so rich in history there's a book written about it! Located at the top of the house, this quirky flat is full of rustic charm complete with kitchen, lounge, bathroom and balcony shared with one other person. Excellent transport connections. The flat is at the top of three flights of stairs.

The space
The house is over four-hundred years old and much of its original charm and soul remains. This does however lend itself to some rather quirky features and rustic charm - be prepared for sloping, creaky floorboards. There is a private music room on the ground floor, so don't be surprised if you hear opera singers as you enter the house!

Where you’ll be

Greater London, England, United Kingdom

Bloomsbury is brimming with inspiring spots; get your culture fix at The British Museum, buy a good read in Persephone Books, soak up the atmosphere on Lambs Conduit Street, head to the Charles Dickens Museum and marvel at the desk on which he wrote 'Olivier Twist', or if shopping is more you're thing, walk 20 minutes to Oxford Street and shop till you drop.

I am journalist and actress and if I'm not doing one of those things, I'm usually doing the other! I also write and perform poetry and enjoy painting. I've been using Airbnb since 2016 but only began hosting in June 2019. I have travelled all over the world and also lived in Paris and Italy. I speak French and a little Italian and Spanish and love discovering new cultures, places and people - so I look forward to meeting you!

During your stay

I'm out and about a lot but should be around during your stay to give you tips of where to visit and point you in the direction of the best cafes. If I'm not home when you check in, I will give you a code for the door so you can let yourself in.
