Comfortable double room in quiet cul-de-sac opposite woods and creek but only 5 mins walk from train to Plymouth (main Penzance to Paddington line) or 10 mins to Fore St, shops, takeaways and an often recommended Indian restaurant. Pub with good live music by river. Guests are welcome to sit outside in either the front or back garden and enjoy the sunshine.
Ideal for someone who needs to be in Plymouth but would rather stay somewhere more peaceful. Many excellent scenic walks close by along rivers Tamar and Lynher. On edge of Tamar Valley an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Good beaches 20 mins away

I provide a couple of different cereals and bread for toast as a light breakfast. Tea and coffee are available in the bedroom. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen to prepare food. I usually cook between 6 and 7 pm so space may be limited then! I have a dishwasher and prefer guests to leave plates and cutlery on the side to be loaded into it by me (only one person in any house can load a dishwasher!) I hate people who rinse their dishes under the tap and pretend they're clean - fine in your own house but not when sharing!

I'm happy to advise on the local area and there are timetables, an ordnance survey map and tourist information in the bedroom. I'm around a fair bit but respect guests' privacy and possible desire for peace and quiet!

I love travelling but I'm not keen on impersonal hotels, I would much rather stay in a "real" home and learn from the people there about the area. I also prefer to spend my money on great food and wine, two of my favourite things in life! I love cooking and teach bread making.
For almost two years I have thoroughly enjoyed hosting guests from all over the world, particularly young people who appreciate a nice room in a family home as an alternative to a hostel or campsite. I also like to make solo travellers feel particularly welcome as it can be nice to share conversation at the end of the day if you are travelling alone as I do myself.
I try to provide everything I feel is important - the wifi code is on the wall and works well! There is tea and coffee in the room and fresh milk in a flask daily The bed is good quality and extremely comfortable so I'm told..I am more than happy to advise on local knowledge and there are many maps and books in the bedroom to help guests make the most of their stay.
A good number of working people have also appreciated a bargain priced home from home, some staying for several weeks!
What my house isn't however is a business and I really think some users of Airbnb don't get this. (This isn't helped by the fact that there are a lot of B&Bs and hotels using Airbnb) I don't spend my day making the house look immaculate for visitors, I go out to work. Sometimes it's very tidy, other times less so because I've been busy! I charge less than half what you would pay to stay in a local B&B and some people, in particular couples around my own age have been critical and would be better off in the local Travelodge. They won't get use of a kitchen or be welcome in a friendly living room but it will have been professionally cleaned and there won't be any personal possessions lying around! So, do think what you are looking for when you book accommodation and whether it is right for your particular needs.
