28 Old Devonshire Road

Balham, London
Bed & Breakfast

A lovely peaceful sunny bedroom, your own big bathroom, and a pear tree to breakfast under in summer. All very close to central London


1 room


Rooms sleep 2


In a quiet part of Balham – close to leafy common, tube and train – are Georgina’s lovely home and award-winning garden. Enjoy breakfast under the pear tree, or at the long wooden table in the dining room, with a marble fireplace and a friend’s watercolours. You have the top floor to yourself: a sunny, cosy bedroom, with city views, a TV, lots of books; a big bathroom too, with a fab shower and comforting waffle robes to pad about in. Georgina lays on a special breakfast and all sorts of thoughtful extras. She loves to chat (speaks French and Italian too) really knows her London and will help plan your stay.

What a special place to stay in London! I have come back to Georgina's bed and breakfast five times already. It has always been such a pleasure. I love the beautiful, spacious guest room and bathroom in Georgina's stylish home. The location is also great. Old Devonshire Road is my favourite,

We stayed here for 4 days during the Chelsea Flower Show. Georgina made us feel very welcome in the top floor bedroom and spacious bathroom and her knowledge of both the area and London is invaluable . We followed her advice on where to eat and found everywhere to our liking. Her breakfasts are lovely and we could have spent a lot more time around her friendly dining table chatting to our pleasant, welcoming hostess.

We stayed at Balham B&B for several nights the beginning of June 2014. The entire experience was wonderful. The accommodations were comfy & private, having the top floor to ourselves (bedroom & bathroom). The bed was very comfortable, and we enjoyed being able to look out the window to the street below. The bathroom was spacious and clean, with all amenities provided. Georgina was an amazing host, providing us with a great breakfast each morning, and excellent suggestions on where to eat, and what to visit in the area.She was extremely personable, and nothing was too much trouble for her.


A very beautiful home in a quiet, leafy London street close to shops, restaurants and public transport which very quickly whisks you into the heart of London. Georgina is a fabulous host and her guest accommodation couldn't be more comfortable. Thank you for a lovely stay.


Stayed with the very helpful Georgina in her delighful house - near to my son and very convenient for London. It was more like staying with a friend - all so comfortable and relaxed. Perfect!
