Accès des voyageurs
Apart from their room, any guest will be sharing a bathroom and kitchen with myself and son. There is a lounge which they are welcome to use when I am not home, however, I would prefer to have the lounge to myself when I am there although have been known to have the occasional movie night with my guests. There is a TV and hair dryer in bedroom and wifi access. Access to a washing machine is available but no tumble dryer. There is also a balcony and small garden (slightly overgrown :-| ).
Échanges avec les voyageurs
I am happy to advise on local area and transport and give lifts in the car if we are going the same way.
Guests have access to washing machine, microwave, refrigerator and cooker for their use. Also space in kitchen cupboards and fridge for their own provisions. I will provide clean bedding and towels, however, guests must provide their own laundry detergent for any personal items they wish to wash.
The flat is situated down a side street and is pretty quiet with lovely neighbours. A 10-15 minute drive will take you into the Essex/Hertfordshire countryside where there is a lot of lovely green space. 5 min drive to A406, 10 min drive to M11 and 15-20 min drive to M25. 15 min drive to Stratford/Westfield!
It's a typical London/city neighbourhood - reasonably safe but always be aware of your surroundings. Close windows and lock doors when you go out.
Bus stop at the end of the road where 4 buses take you to the nearest tube station (15 mins approx). Nearest tube is Walthamstow Central on the Victoria Line which is 25 mins into Oxford Circus or 15 mins overground into Liverpool St. Door to door to Oxford Circus on a good day is 45-60 mins. Door to door to Liverpool St is 45 mins approx. Closest overground station is Highams Park.
Lots of local and reliable cab firms around.
We are not far from a few major roads - the North Circular (A406) is just 5 min drive, the M11 is 10 mins drive and M25 is 15-20 mins drive.
Single females only sorry! As mentioned, there is a 7 year old child living here so any guest needs to be considerate to this fact. No parties, loud music, strangers or overnight guests. Sorry! :-)
2 x cats - both white, very friendly and affectionate, mainly indoor cats, sometimes smelly :-) (sticky fur remover for clothes provided)
1 x 7 year old son - very friendly, reasonably well behaved, sleeps well, rises early, can be noisy (ear plugs provided).
Respect each others space and be mindful of living with a child.
Always clean up after yourself, particularly in shared areas and keep room clean and tidy.
Absolutely no smoking in the flat.
No parties, loud music or strangers.
No pets or kids sorry - already have 2 cats and a kid.
No shoes on inside.
Always close windows and lock the door on departure.

I am a mum living with my 7 year old son and 2 cats. I have a good sense of humour and am pretty relaxed. Being a working mum I don't have a huge social life and tend to spend most evenings relaxing (collapsing!) with a good TV show, book or movie. Weekends are generally spent with my son, family and friends with the odd night out when I'm lucky enough to get a sitter. I do like the place to be clean and tidy. I definitely do not have OCD but I do believe in mutual respect and consideration for others.
NB: Any potential guest needs to be sensitive to the fact that the space is shared with a (very cute & reasonably well behaved) 7 year old and therefore conduct themselves accordingly. Thank you! :-)
