I have a B&B at home in North London, visitors are welcome.

20140122-183108.jpgIn June 2013 I decided to turn my lovely little back living room into a guest room for people to come and stay. Not a B&B in the conventional sense because I don’t do breakfast. The B&B in my case stands for “Bed and Biscuits” :)

20140122-184154.jpgSo I got rid of the sofa and bought a good double bed with drawers underneath…..

There was already a bathroom ( originally this was the kitchen when the house was built in 1865). So now it’s a private en suite just for the guest room.

20140122-190022.jpgThere’s a kettle with tea, coffee, and hot chocolate, and there’s always a good selection of biscuits plus a few Lindor chocolates.

20140122-190342.jpgI put our flat screen tv on the wall to create more space and kept the Sky box for added luxury.

20140122-190605.jpgI bought some books of Muswell Hill (where we live) and books of London. My house is featured in this lovely book by Selina Lake.

20140122-190946.jpgplus maps and shopping guides etc.

20140122-191135.jpgI swept and tidied the area outside the French doors and put two of our chairs and a table out there to create a little private patio area for eating/smoking/sitting in the summer breeze.

20140122-191814.jpgGuests can sit at the garden table too if they like.

Since I started 4 months ago I’ve met so many lovely people from all over the World. ┬áSome come just to see London, some come to visit family, some come for events at Alexandra Palace which is very near by, some come for courses or work. It’s always lovely to meet them and they have all enjoyed their stay here. You can read all the reviews on the website.

  1. Looks so nice and cosy ,i think i would never want to leave xx

  2. It’s really lovely Nicky, you totally deserve to be fully booked all year round. Like the bed and biscuits idea!

  3. Simple gorgeous! Well I know where to stay next time I need to stop over in London! It looks so pretty and homely and far, far more stylish than some faceless, characterless hotel! Made me laugh when you said what the B & B stood for!
