From this garden facing room, the leafy green neighbourhood of Telegraph Hill in south east London feels like a slice of the English countryside. Set on the top floor of a three storey Victorian house allows for a clear view of the rear garden and also lets in ample light through the two large windows. With its white walls, limed floor and discreet art work, the peaceful space is bright and uncluttered. Minimal furnishing includes a double bed, dressed in pure Egyptian cotton sheets, which sits opposite the original open fireplace. A sizeable bathroom with walk-in shower is for exclusive use of guests staying in this room. However, if the City Guest Room below is occupied at the same time, both parties will share the washing facilities. The night rate for the room includes breakfast served in the ground floor family kitchen which opens out onto the garden.
The elegant bohemian decor throughout the house features a blend of mismatched, and yet complimentary, antique and modern pieces perfectly put together with a keen eye for art and design. Attentive hosts offer a relaxed and informal home from home experience with top class service.
Good transport links in Telegraph Hill ensure quick and easy access to central London. With the world-renowned Goldsmiths College also close by, this b&b makes a perfect base for hopeful students during interview season. The quiet conservation area also boasts an eclectic mix of one-off cafes, restaurants and pubs. Abundant green space includes Telegraph Hill Park, complete with tennis courts, children’s playground and monthly farmers market, and nearby Greenwich park with its rich naval history.
