We are 5 minutes walk from the University, and only minutes further to the two railway stations (St Davids and Central). You can walk to the cathedral and historic city centre in just 10 minutes. There are numerous restaurants, and cafes within this area. Yet our Victorian 3-story terrace townhouse is in a quiet conservation area, opposite leafy Bury Meadow Park. We have a large shared front garden and private back garden. Good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
The room is warm and pretty with a wooden double bed and very comfortable mattress. It looks out over our garden and the gardens beyond, so there is little road noise. The sun shines into this room on a summer morning. There is a chest of drawers with available space, and hanging space in the fitted wardrobe. The window has a wooden Venetian blind. You have secure wi-fi, hairdryer, towels, towelling bathrobe, bedside cabinet, bedside lamp. Please bring your own slippers – outdoor shoes to be taken off by the front door.
You are welcome to use our dining table for working at a laptop (we usually eat in the kitchen), or in the summer there is a lovely garden room with electric point and wi-fi. All our guests say the same thing about our house; that it is amazingly peaceful and yet so close to the city centre. It is also warm and cosy in winter as our sash windows are double-glazed hardwood replicas of the original Victorian designs.
Husband Trevor is a musician so can often be heard playing his piano in the evening.
We have three very well trained working cocker spaniels (agility dogs) who adore guests and offer cuddles at any time (but they are not allowed in bedrooms!). Please note that our dogs do bark when people enter the house, so if you are planning to stay out until the early hours, we would prefer that you choose other accommodation (we do not want to disturb our neighbours).
Zugang für Gäste
A few steps from your room is your private bathroom with over-bath shower and separate shared large walk-in shower. This bathroom and shower area underwent a major re-build in Spring 2017, with completely new fittings, including a combined toilet/bidet, and underfloor heating.
We provide breakfast: home-made organic granola with fruit and yoghurt, and/or toast and home-made jam.
You are welcome to heat a ready-meal in our microwave but we don't offer cooking facilities. Please eat in the kitchen - no food in the bedroom. Tea, coffee and herbal teas are available any time.
We have access to a private tennis court at the end of our terrace if you like to play.

I (Vivienne) work from home - I am a publisher – so there is usually someone here who can help with queries. We love our home and have lived here for 20 years so we know the area very well and are delighted to share information with our guests.
Trevor is an academic with friends in music all around the world, with particular connections in West Africa.

I DO NOT ACCEPT BOOKINGS FROM PEOPLE WITH BLANK PROFILES OR PHOTOS WHICH DO NOT SHOW THEM CLEARLY or from people with no reviews.
NOR DO I ACCEPT BOOKINGS FOR THIRD PARTIES. It's against Airbnb rules. We are taking people into our home, and welcoming them as guests, rather than seeing them as a business opportunity. If this sounds good to you, we look forward to meeting you! Please note, we do not offer long term student accommodation. Also, as our dogs bark when people enter the house, and we have close neighbours, we prefer not to have guests who plan to go clubbing and return home in the early hours.
We have 3 cocker spaniels, very well trained, friendly and enthusiastic! No smoking in house or garden. Please leave outdoor shoes at front door and bring slippers. Please arrive 5-8pm and leave by 10.00am. Please do not book with us if you are planning to go clubbing and return home in the early hours, as our dogs do bark when people enter the house, and we do not want to disturb the sleep of our neighbours. We will respect your privacy and hope that you will help us maintain our peaceful ambience.
I am a publisher/editor, working from home running my small digital publishing business. I love working with creative people so many of my titles are on craft/art subjects such as quilting/embroidery and even corset making. My 'other life' is full of dogs, my four working cocker spaniels with whom I train and compete at agility, which keeps us all very active and busy. My husband Trevor is a musician and academic, a researcher in ethnomusicology, so he has friends all round the world, especially West Africa. We love to travel, and have a current obsession with southern Italy. We also love our food, being great lovers of organic fruit and veg, some of which Trevor grows on his allotment (his jam is legendary!).
