About this listing

Back on AirB&B after a break, this listing offers comfortable accommodates for solo travellers. Well positioned with easy access to Leeds (incl. airport) with ample off-road parking. Price includes a basic continental breakfast and good coffee.

The space

This room is in the same property as The New Garden Room with En-suite. The room has a small double bed in it and space to store clothes etc. This room is not large enough to comfortably accommodate two guests.

The Little Garden Room is one room in a four bedroomed stone built house, dating back to the 1870s. The house is in a very quiet part of Leeds in the middle of a wood, down an unmade up track. Despite its rural setting it is within walking distance of buses and shops and is a short drive from Headingley and from the Leeds / Bradford Airport.

Guest access

The 'family bathroom'. The bathroom, which has underfloor heating has recently been renovated and features include a 'wet-room' type shower and a small bath. Use of this bathroom may be is shared with others.

Guests have full use of the kitchen (including a dedicated shelf in the fridge for those booked for a longer stay) and shared living spaces – there are 2 large sitting rooms one with a wood burning stove and a large dining / living room. A separate room is available for drying washing.

Guests also have access to our garden which is about 300 ft. long and has several sitting areas. In the summer guests can, if they wish, sit outside the house to eat meals. There is a small brook at the bottom of the garden.
Outside there is space for parking for several cars to the side of the property, which is situated in a quiet cup de sac. There is also a locked store for bicycles.

Guests have use of the washing machine and the room where washing can be dried.

Interaction with guests

The host is sometimes at home during the day and is available to answer questions. If required the host can provide information about local walks or ideas for places to visit. It is also possible to book bespoke short tours of West / North Yorkshire (small charge to cover costs).

Really enjoyed my short visit with Joanna. I was very late arriving, due to the M1 traffic but Joanna was very relaxed about this which I was grateful for. The house was easy to find with lots of parking. I stayed in the larger bedroom which was very comfortable, lots of space and a lovely view of the garden. Joanna was very friendly and was very happy to provide me with an early-ish breakfast so I could go and do the local park run. Thank you for being a great host.

Lovely quiet location with woodland view. Joanna is a kind and experienced host who offered me a larger room at no extra cost (much appreciated). She managed to strike the perfect balance between engagement and interest and leaving me to do my own thing. The room was spacious and clean; beautiful bathroom. I had a really good night's sleep.

Joanna is a wonderful host! I enjoyed every moment of my stay in her home. I booked ‘The little Garden Room’ and when I arrived Joanna told me she put me in the bigger room because she said: “it was available at the time of my booking”. I thought that was very kind of her as I had with me too much luggage. Joanna’s home is as described in the photos. It is the perfect choice if you are looking for a quiet countryside place but not too far away from Leeds city centre. The place is within walking distance to shops and restaurants. I enjoyed walking to Headingley located approximatively two miles out of the city centre and visiting the local restaurants and the library. Above all, I appreciated how much Joanna and her partner welcomed me into their home and made me feel very comfortable. I went looking for a place to stay and found a home and amazing people that I plan to keep in touch with. This experience is one to make you want to try AirBnB again!

Response from Joanna:
Gloria - thank you for your generous review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I see no point in putting people in the small room if the bigger one is available. Please do stay in touch - you never know when our paths might cross again - you know how I like to explore and travel!! And of course you would always be welcome to stay whenever you need a place to rest your head.

I have lived in Leeds for just under 20 years, after spending a long time in Scotland. I enjoy travelling and have used AirB&Bs in different parts of the world. When travelling I value staying in a real home with real people. For me this adds something unique to my travelling experience.

I am now able to offer accommodation of my own and aim to give you something a bit different which will make your stay in Leeds a really great experience.
