About our home

We've been here 17 years and absolutely love the area. It's got everything you need close at hand. We love cooking so the kitchen is really well equipped. If you're into food and cooking then you need to visit the the Turkish shops on Green Lanes which are open 24 hours a day. If you like middle eastern cooking you can get every type of ingredient you can think of.

Our house is a classic Victorian end of terrace house. We've modernised it over the years so it's warm and comfortable all year round. In the last few years we've worked a lot on the garden and now spend a lot of time out there between March and October. It really is an extra living space.

We're restricted to when we go away as our son is still studying. Ideally we're looking to get away somewhere hot for Christmas 2022, so we're open to any offers from mid December to the start of January. The dates are on the availability calendar.

We have a cat, Woody, who is very friendly and loves company so ideally if anyone staying likes cats, that's a bonus as we won't have to put him in a cattery.
