I have a cozy beautiful double room available, in a smart period house in central Kennington on a beautiful Garden Square, close to River Thames and Lambeth Bridge. Big Ben can be seen and heard from the house.

I do also have a sofabed in the living room, so if needed that could sleep 2 more (at extra cost).

In the room you will find a very comfortable double bed, a wardrobe, lamps, full length mirror and a few hooks to hang your coat up! It would be ideal for a short stay, maybe for a sightseeing trip, a conference, or a few days business. However it wouldn't be ideal if you are relocating to London and have a lot of stuff!

Breakfast is on a "help-yourself" basis - cereals, toast, tea and coffee and juices. Full English breakfast is available at various local delis for under £5.

My home is in the perfect location for you to begin exploring London. Many of London's most famous sights are within walking distance. You can reach the Thames in 5 minutes and it is approximately 10 minutes from Parliament. Buckingham Palace, Waterloo, The Tate Modern, Globe Theatre and Chelsea are also all within walking distance. It is just a 3 minute walk to the Vauxhall Gay Village. The Oval Cricket Ground is also 1 minute away so if you are coming to watch the cricket this would be close by.

The area has great transportation links, and there are 3 tube stations very close by. Vauxhall, Kennington, and Oval are all just a short walk away and give you access to the Victoria Line and Northern Line. Having access to 2 underground lines makes getting around the city quick and convenient. It is just 2 stops to Victoria station, where you can take buses and trains to all of London's main airports. We are also just 3 minutes to Vauxhall, which is a major hub where many buses stop, giving you 24 hour access to London. One stop to Waterloo, then change to Jubilee line direct to Stratford for the Olympic Village.

The house is on a very beautiful garden square formerly belonging to the Prince of Wales (Duchy of Cornwall) and there are strong links to the Royal Family in the square.
House rules
I'm pretty relaxed so no firm rules beyond the usual - be respectful, be relatively tidy and let's enjoy our time together. The house is for singles or doubles.

I'm male in my early 30s so the room would be perfect for similar guys looking for a place to stay close to Vauxhall - all the clubs in Vauxhall are max 5 mins walk away. Clapham, Soho, Hoxton, Chelsea are all within a short ride away.

I'm a relatively good host too so happy to give you a run-down of places to visit.

The house isn't child-proof so it's not really suitable for young children.

No smoking inside please - you can smoke in garden.

Happy to provide cereals/ toast, tea and coffee for breakfast included. You can have full English breakfast locally for £5.
