Welcome to my home which is over 100 years old. The area is very residential and you are within walking distance of Plymouth University and the city. 150 meters from a shopping area where there are pubs, restaurants, takeaways and major supermarkets.

The space
I have a large double bedroom to rent out, in an old Victorian house 10/15 minutes walk from Plymouth City centre and and 25 minutes to the Historic Barbican and the Hoe. The house includes a living room, dining room, modern kitchen, four double bedrooms, a bathroom downstairs with a shower and toilet, and a shower room upstairs with a separate toilet. The house is spacious but only has parking for 1 guest car, but there is car space available within a 1 minute walk from the house. Public transport is only a 5 minute walk away, and the railway station is about a 10 minute walk away. Plymouth University is only about a 5 minute walk from the house, and the Hoe and the waterfront are about 25 minutes walk from the house.
The £35 quoted (two people £40) is for a large bedroom with a double bed, TV and your own sink unit.
There is no cooked breakfast, but tea, coffee, toast and cereals are all available if required. It is not intended that the guests use the kitchen to cook meals on a nightly basis.

There is lots to see in Plymouth, including the famous Hoe, and the old Barbican. The city has approx. 265,000 people and is within easy reach of Dartmoor National Park, and the Eden Project in Cornwall. There is also a large choice of good restaurants and bars.

If you require more than one room I do have another double bedroom which can be booked. Email me and I will open it up so you can book it.

I hope you enjoy your stay here in Plymouth.


Ian.

I'm a retired ex-businessman who does a lot of walking, and a lot of volunteering for local charities, and I go to watch my local football team every other Saturday. I volunteer at the local hospice (St Luke's) once a week and also work for the League of Friends in their shop at Derriford Hospital, and Improving Live's Plymouth. Life is good, but I thought I would give AIRBNB a go, so I could meet some more people from around the world.
