Glisson Road is located between the rail station and historic city centre - a ten minute walk in either direction. It is ideal for leisurely explorations of this beautiful medieval city without the hassle of having to rely on taxis and buses.
An attractive double bedroom (approx 3.4m x 3.3m) on the ground floor of the property including a high quality, pocketed Vi-Spring divan bed (medium springing), original slate fireplace, stripped pine flooring, and persian rugs (note: I also have a single bedroom at the same property)
Guests have full access to the sitting room, breakfast room, kitchen and patio garden. The room is not en-suite. The property is occupied by me and a long term lodger (a junior doctor in her final year at Cambridge University). There will sometimes be one additional guest. I will always do my best to provide full information on occupancy when you first get in touch.
The Airbnb questionnaire asks about "guest Interaction". Well, I'm happy to chat away over a cup of tea / glass of wine and am equally happy to leave you to yourself.
I provide a very simple "help yourself" breakfast consisting of cereal (muesli, granola, oats, cornflakes), tea/coffee to guests who are booked in for two weeks or less. If you are planning to stay more than 14 nights, breakfast is not included (most long term guests prefer to do their own thing anyway). For guests staying up to a month, i will provide clean towels and bed linen weekly. Guests staying over one month are generally expected to do their own bed linen/towel laundry and provide their own washing liquid.
I have a pretty laid back, easy goiong attitude here - which i believe is reflected in the feedback i get from guests. As a rule of thumb, and out of respect to other guests, neighbours (and me!), noise should be kept to a minimum after 22.30hrs. From experience, the main issue here is (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)ing. I actively discourage (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)ing after 22.30hrs.
The house and its immediate environs is strictly NO SMOKING. To be honest, even smoking in the back garden is discouraged because the smoke tends to drift back in, which can be a pain.
I have lived in the centre of Cambridge, UK for nearly 20 years from where I run a one-man PR firm specialising in science and technology. I'm a keen walker and cyclist and have started using AirB+B to explore the beautifully diverse islands of Britain and, when time and money permit, to wander further afield, especially mainland Europe. I play a bit of guitar and harmonica but would not consider myself very good at either. My other passions, in no particular order, are photography, literature, carpentry, an allotment and live music.
