My dolls house Victorian cottage, situated in the center of the village like atmosphere of Parson's Green, is decorated in the English country house style. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 doubles, 1 en-suite and a single.
The house is NOT let as a single unit I rent 2 double bedrooms on a bed and breakfast basis.
The room rate includes a 'please help yourself' continental style breakfast of toast, assorted preserves, marmalade, marmite, honey, hazlenut spread, peanut butter, choice of cereals, teas (Indian, China, fruit and herbal) coffee (cafetire and instant) yogurt, and fruit.
The GORGEOUS double (this listing) over looks the attractive garden, sharing the marble and mirrored power shower room, WC and basin.
The King sized double (5ft) bed has an interior sprung mattress (manufactured by 'Savoir' - the same as those used in the Savoy Hotel, London!) and is supremly comfortable, guests regularly comment on how well they slept! Please see my reviews to confirm this!
There is a hanging cupboard with shelves, bed side cupboards, and chair for the desk/dressing table. The window is dressed with a Venetian slated blind and black out curtains.
I can also provide an extra, comfortable single 'put you you bed' with an interior sprung mattress, 5ft.8 inches x 2ft.6 inches, to accomadate 3 people. However this leaves little room to move around! and is only suitable for 2 adults in the king sized bed and a child or a small adult in the single bed.
When this room is arranged for 3 people, the double and a single bed are pushed together, between the walls under the window,and to get in and out of bed you have to climb in from the bottom! I assure you both beds are very comfortable and it looks like 1 very wide bed!! If you have a lot of BIG luggage, you may wish/need to store this else where in the house. The room is cramped for 3 people, but perfectly possible and is let on a regular basis like this with no complaints!!
I provide a hair dryer, soap, shampoo/conditioner and all linens. The bed linen is top quality Sea Island or Egyptian cotton. The towels are Turkish cotton. There is an iron and ironing board which you are welcome to use.
You are most welcome to a cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate any time of day or night.
I like people to feel relaxed and at home from home whilst staying and so they are invited to use the rest of the cottage.
THE SITTING ROOM has a 27inch television with all the 'Freeview' channels, DVD and wireless connection is the latest super fast BT Infinity. You are welcome to view my DVD's.
THE KITCHEN You are welcome to use the kitchen for light meals. There is a microwave, double electric oven, fridge, where you can keep a little food, dishwasher, washing machine and seperate dryer. ( I charge £8 to cover electricity for a wash and dry.) Soap powder/stain remover/fabric conditioner is provided. The kitchen is well stocked with china, glass ware, cutlery. cooking utensils, pots and pans,. I ask guests please, to not use the kitchen for meals after 9.00pm There is a dining table, beside the French doors to the garden.
THE GARDEN is paved with potted plants and a sitting area, please enjoy a cigarette here if you are a smoker, but please no smoking in the house.
Parson's Green is an fashionable, friendly, pleasant, safe area to stay, within easy reach of Central London as there is truly exellent public transport minutes away.
BUSES run a good reliable regular service from the Fulham and New Kings roads.
UNDERGROUND/METRO/SUBWAY - The local tube station is PARSON'S GREEN on the DISTRICT LINE in ZONE '2', a 5 minite walk from the cottage.
TAXIS - the famous London BLACK CABS are readily available, either hail one off the street, or private taxi/minicab firms can be pre-booked easily. I know a couple of exellent reliable companies.
Parking is available in St Dionis Road and the surrouding streets at a cost of £2.20 an hour in the parking bays between the hours of 9am - 5pm. Other hours it if free.
At the end of the street is Parson's Green itself, now a very attractive area where the locals are to be found relaxing and enjoying the local atmosphere on sunny days.. (Originally all the 'greens in London were burial pits during the great plague) here, you might enjoy some fish and chips from the local 'chippie' - in days gone by these were served wrapped in newspaper, now you served them in a box!! or possibly a takeaway kebab form the well known 'Kebab Kid' recommended by the international chef Jamie Oliver. If instant food is not to your desire the area has many different restraunts, gastro pubs,including the world famous 'The White Horse' which sells over 137 bottled beers from around the World, wine bars, and wonderful shops, too many to list!!
HEALTH There is a walk in NHS cetre at the end of the road, 2 doctors surgeries, NHS and private, both exellent. Charing Cross and Chelsea Westminster Hospitals, both with A and E departments are all within easy reach.
It is a short walk to historic Fulham Palace, originally home to the Bishops of London, well worth a visit, and its gardens, by the river Thames. Putney Bridge, with its twin sister churches on the north and south banks , is a great place to soak up the atmosphere of the annual Oxford and Cambridge University Boat Race in April. For those of you who enjoy a run there is a good route from Putney along the north and south river banks over Hammersmith Bridge and back.
Fulham is a very green area, with several parks offering activities. Tennis courts are available to rent close by as are a selection of sports centers offering variouse exercise classes, swimming pools etc.
Both the world famous Chelsea (Stanford Bridge) and Fulham (Craven Cottage) football clubs are within walking distance .
The MOST IMPORTANT thing for me is for my guests to feel relaxed and 'at Home' so they may enjoy all that this fantastic city has to offer. Please feel comfortable in asking me any questions or requests and I will do my best to answer them. I request that you please, read the tab, at the top of this description headed 'House Rules' Thank you!
I am happy to have families to stay, but my home is not 'Baby Proofed' and therefor is not suitable for children under 7 years of age! I also have a cat and occasionally visiting dogs, all friendly!
Guests are invited to share the sitting room, garden and to use the kitchen to prepare light meals until 9.00pm, after this time please make a special arrangement with me! They may also keep some food in the fridge.
I follow my guests lead, if they would like to share a glass of wine/coffee I am more than happy to do so, and enjoy talking with them. If they prefer not to do so or are too busy this is fine too.

This was the most hospitable Airbnb place I've ever stayed at. If Lizzie invites you to stay for a meal, definitely accept! I was traveling solo to a game at the Fulham grounds nearby and the whole stay was wonderful. The room was cozy and the bed was large and very comfortable. Lizzie prepared a lovely breakfast in the morning with toast, jam, croissants, coffee, tea, and juice. I highly recommend staying here.
Très bon séjour. Lizzie est une hôtesse charmante et très agréable. À recommander!
What to say....Jaco and I had some troubles to find a place in London because of the many pet-friendly restrictions...Full of worries and anxiety in our research we finally found Lizzie who very kindly offered us a lovely room in her house with her lady cat Kitty.....That immaculate linen puffy bed overlooking the green garden...the fresh flowers on the bedside table...lamb treats for Jaco and joyful chats over the occasional glass of wine....made our staying just superb! Couldn't ask for more. We spent few weeks in a very comfortable and homely space, great location and lovely company! Highly recommend for short or long staying...with or without your dog ;) Thank you Lizzie, we will come to visit soon again!!!!!
Lizzie has been a very nice host. The room is very confortable and clean, she is always very helpfulf and we enjoed her marvellous breakfast. Even if we had a sharing bathroom, her cleaning has been always perfect.
Lizzie is entirely honest about her accommodation - it is very comfortable, extremely convenient for tube and provisions, really nice simple breakfast, and the room is fine for 2 people but a little cramped for 3. However with the two of us and a 10-yr old child we managed perfectly well. On top of this, Lizzie is a wonderful and welcoming hostess, and she really makes her accommodation special with her attention to detail.
We would certainly book again - thanks for a great 4-night stay Lizzie.
La estadía con Lizzie fue muy calidad, es una persona acogedora que lo hace sentir a uno en casa, nos brindo confianza y seguridad, haciendo de nuestra estadía en Londres una experiencia inolvidable. Si Usted desea visitar Londres y que su estadía sea en un ambiente de hospitalidad y atenciones no dude en contactar a Lizzie Mackinnon.
We really enjoyed our time in London and our stay with Lizzie. Lizzie was helpful and friendly from our initial booking (and queries) through to our departure and we would like to say thank you for all your effort in making our stay that much more enjoyable. It was nice being close to Parsons Green and the tube station, and there is no shortage of restaurants and gastro pubs to explore when you've had enough of frenetic London central. The room and house was comfortable and clean and we were made to feel at home. All in all a great stay and would definitely return.
My wife and I stayed with Lizzie for one night after spending the day at the tennis at Wimbledon. Her place is in a nice location and like Lizzie is warm and welcoming. Lizzie was very helpful during the booking process and couldn't do enough to make sure we were comfortable during our stay. The house is cosy and clean with a very pleasant garden. Even in our short stay we were made to feel that we could treat the place as our own. Breakfast was delightful. All in all a very good first experience of booking through Airbnb. Thanks Lizzie
A great place to stay in London. The location is excellent, with the Parson's Green Tube station 5minutes walk away. A range of restaurants and supermarkets also very close by. Host responded to all communication requests promptly and went out of her way to help us.
The accommodation is excellent, very friendly and helpful host, wonderfully comfortable bed, great breakfast, spotlessly clean - "a home away from home"
Highly recommended, We will be back!!
Thank you Lizzie
Glenis and Don
Enjoyed our stay very much at Lizzie's lovely home..lizzie made us most welcome and offered tea and refreshments when we arrived. Lizzie provided a great variety of bread, croissants, jams etc for breakfast and you were invited to help yourself. We were staying for two nights only and were sad to leave. Would certainly use Lizzie's accommodation again when in London. Marion from Glasgow
