Lovely house close to the Leeds city centre.
Our home was built in 1900. We have tried to retain some of the original features from each room and complement them with artefacts from around the globe.
The house is clean and tidy. The kitchen is the heart of the home where you can usually find my partner and I or a friend chatting away.
Breakfast is served in the morning. If you have to leave earlier than I wake, I will leave breakfast out for you or show you where things are kept so that you can help yourself. It's normally a choice of cereal, toast and preservatives, fruit or egg with toast.
Please let me know if you have any dietary requirements or restrictions because of religious believes and I will try to cater for you.
| A bit about me |
Apart from spending a few years overseas, I have lived in Leeds all of my life. My partner and I are members of the National Trust and we're happy to share the hidden treasures that Leeds and the surrounding areas have to offer.
We are very close to the city centre. 10 minutes on the bus or 30 minutes by foot.
There is parking available outside the property if required.
We are non-smokers and would prefer it if you would smoke in the garden.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
