En-suite attic room in family home, bright and airy, sleeps 2. With own shower and toilet. Just a few mins walk to the town centre and Castle Park. Very close to proper local pub. Freeview in room, Wi-Fi in house. Big double bed with very comfy mattress. On bus route to university and main station.
This is an attic room in a nice Victorian house, very close to Castle Park, and 10 mins walk from central Colchester. Well-placed for access to university via regular buses, or trains into Town Station (10 mins walk) or main station (bus ride or 20 mins walk).
Our road is a little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of town; as soon as you turn the corner and enter the road, it just feels nicer and quieter. But you can be in town quickly.
We're happy to give some tips on where to go, what to see around town and the surrounding areas.
The room is en-suite, with toilet and shower. Kitchen is shared with us, you are very welcome to use it.
No massive house rules. Smoking only outside please, either at the front of the house or out in the back garden. We're both working, but we're normally up until midnight at least, but please keep noise a little bit low during the night.
If you're staying a few days, no problem to do some laundry, just ask. If you've got any special requests for breakfast, let us know and we're happy to get it in.
There's a kettle in the room, tea and coffee, and a hair-dryer and small fridge. Room has Freeview. House has wi-fi.

We are happy to help as we can with recommendations on where to go, what to see etc.
If you want to socialise with us, that's fine. If not, no problem, but don't feel awkward if you fancy hanging out.
Let us know if arriving by car, as parking can be at a premium depending on times. We have visitors' permits and usually people get a space!
Do note that this is an attic room with en-suite, but the access is up a slightly narrow staircase which could be a problem for somebody with mobility issues. I am happy to send a pic via e-mail prior to booking.
There is a macerator upstairs which is required due to the plumbing into the attic. This makes a noise when it runs - when the toilet is flushed, or the shower / sink are being used. This noise lasts for a short time, but has been mentioned by one of our guests. It's an arrangement used in many places, but seemed to unnerve this one guest, saying it should have been mentioned.
Smoking only outside please!
