Description(Reference number: 78982)
Set in a red-brick school from the 1880s, this characterful home benefits from a south-west orientation, so expect to have the sun flooding the space at all times of day. You won't find any new pieces of furniture here as everything is vintage or second hand, and the antique dentist chair has actually sat in the same place for decades (left by a previous tenant due to its weight). Although this isn't the most central location, there are lots of cafes and restaurants within short walking distance and bustling Elephant and Castle is a five-minute bus ride away.
*Guest five will have to sleep on a single bed in the communal area
*This home is a little further out and guests should be prepared to have to travel to the main attractions
*Not everyone will appreciate the free workout to the second floor of a building with no lift
*The rooftop terrace was being renovated when we visited in January 2020 and won’t be ready until late summer, early autumn
*The second bedroom requires some ducking and nimble climbing, as it’s quite a compact space
*Due to the open-staircase, the host does not allow children under the age of 12 to stay here
