The SpaceThis room is a descent size with everything you need inside: Bedside table, storage, laundry basket, mirror, nice view on the garden on one side and on the valley on the other.
My favorite thing about living here is the quietness. It is a detached house and in proper old brick. Even the walls in the house are in brick so you don't hear as much as you would in most UK houses. Also because it is in a residential area with only bungalows, it is very quiet outside too. It is nice to come back from work to quietness.
I love my living room because it is BIG and I can project everything from my laptop or DVD player onto that big back wall. It gives a really really big picture. It sounds very geeky but I can't help it, and I guarantee you that if you do come here, you will love it too :)
I love having guests and I intend to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Hopefully I'll succeed.
To know more about me, please check out my profile. Guest AccessShared Bathroom, living room, kitchen and garden Interaction with GuestsMy interaction really depends whether I'm home or not. I work freelance and when I do work, it's long hours. But when I'm home, I'd say I adapt to the guest. If they like to talk, I'm happy to share a glass of wine on the sofa, if they like silence, I'm happy to oblige too. But I'll be honest, I'm a better listener than talker.
I will always be there at someone's arrival at the house. The NeighborhoodThe other thing that I find very nice is the location. I am 5min drive from both Bolton and Bury which are 2 very good size towns. You'll find everything you need there. And if you do want to go to Manchester, it is 15/20min away by car.
The countryside is minutes away too. the view from the living room is on hills and there are 3 reservoirs I suggest you check out which are 5min drive from the house too. I love going to walk or run there. If you want to visit them, the names are Jumbles, Wyho and Entwislte reservoirs. Entwistle being my favorite.
shop wise, there's also a big Morrisons down the road. You could walk there in 20min or drive in 2. Getting AroundIf I 'm around and you don't drive, I'm happy to come and get you at stations or airport. Depending on circumstance I might ask for a little bit of money in exchange) and I'm happy to take you to those reservoirs too.
There is a bus just a few yards from the house. 507 from Bolton. Other Things to NotePlease note that if you are interested in staying at this place, I will refuse any inquiry from anyone who is not verified, anyone who hasn't filled their profile out and anyone who does not write full emails of introduction. You might read this and think "what an idiot" but you'd be surprised at how many requests I've received without even a hello, just a sentence and who turned out to be deleted by air BnB. So no time wasters please.
You are welcome to use kitchen utensils, but please bring your own food.
I have a washing machine that you are welcome to use once a week if your stay is of a week or more.
If you want to use it more than once a week or if your stay is under a week, I'll charge an extra £4 per use.
And remember, don't bring any towel, shampoo or shower gel. You can have it all here.
Oh and one last thing. As you can see from the pictures, I have 2 cats in the house, so of course, being cat friendly is a must.
