Description

Looking to spend the summer in London? Lovely rooms available for July and August '24, in village-like neighborhood. The rooms are in our newly renovated house: well insulated with double-glazed windows, carpets, redecorated and secure with an alarm. We offer a self-contained space on the bright, sunny loft floor, with a large L-shaped bedroom, desk to study and plenty of storage space. The other room has a small fridge, kettle, cups, and table to eat at. NEW - a small electric cooker/hot pot, plus an airfryer, mean you can make noodles, rice, soups etc. There is also the adjacent shower/bathroom (sole use). The bedroom has a double bed (new firm mattress) under the window, overlooking gardens, quiet with no traffic noise. Skylights have Velux blinds. Free BT superfast fibre-optic wifi runs throughout the house. The loft space suits a (non-smoker), preferably (but not exclusively) female postgraduate, PhD, researcher, lecturer, or solo traveller, who appreciates their own quiet private area in a warm friendly house. Ideally, you'll be a professional or traveller who'll be out and about during the days. We are renting to one person, at a time, no couples allowed. (Please do not enquire if you smoke at all, as we are a committed no smoking house). I work from home as a freelance writer, journalist, editor and teacher of English (EFL). My husband is in the catering business, so he may work different shifts. We enjoy our garden, which in summer is full of vegetables, and in spring with flowers! We usually spend time at the gym or in the park. PLEASE NOTE: Kitchen use is limited, as you have your own facilities in the rooms, including the electric hot pot and air fryer. A small amount of light cooking or microwave use is available on agreement. There are plenty of local cafes and restaurants offering takeaway food. We offer reasonable use of the washing machine & dryer, upon request. We keep the house very clean. We provide linens, towels, a bi-weekly change of bed and cleaning service. Dollis Hill is a peaceful, leafy, village-like area, just 2/3 minutes’ walk to the tube station (Jubilee Line, zone 3) and similar distance to the 90 acre Gladstone Park which has jogging trails (easy place to run 6+ miles). Free outdoor gym facilities, tennis courts, duck pond and formal gardens. Plus a café at the top of the hill with tremendous views over London and Wembley Stadium. There are a few shops (fresh fruit & veg, mini-market convenience store, chemist, newsagents) near the tube station, Also a popular newly renovated restaurant, the Dollis Grill, and a takeaway at the top of our road. Close by (next stop into town) is Willesden Green, which has all the pubs, shops, cafes, supermarkets, and a wide variety of restaurants, you’d expect. There are excellent new Thai/Malaysian, Philippine, and Indian takeways or restaurants. A 10-minute bus ride away is the Brent Cross shopping mall, which has everything under one roof and a wide choice of restaurants/ cafes. The transport links to central London are excellent. The Jubilee line takes 10 minutes to Finchley Rd, St Johns Wood, Baker St, 15/20 minutes to Bond St, Green Park, Westminster, Waterloo, London Bridge. The new Elizabeth Line is now open from Bond St, with easy and swift access to the City. There are easy links to the Overground or Thameslink trains (Cricklewood to Farringdon, Blackfriars, Gatwick, Brighton), plus many bus routes nearby including the 226 on our road. Closest airports are Stansted and Luton, with excellent links by National Express coach from Finchley Rd station. Heathrow can be reached directly by tube and the Elizabeth Line, or the Heathrow Express.
