About our home

Our home is truly in the heart of Bristol, with the city + harbour to one side and Brandon Hill nature park on the other. We're in a quiet cul-de-sac just 5 minutes walk from the city centre, Park Street and the harbour. All of Bristol's main sights are within walking distance.

Park Street, with its shops and restaurants is just a 5 min walk from our door, as is the vibrant and historic city centre. In the centre, St. Nicholas Market serves wonderful street food and the new Cabot Circus shopping centre provides everything for a bit of retail therapy. In the other direction, we're 5-10 minutes walk from the stunning harbour (think taxi boats, tapas and weekend markets), and about 20 minutes walk from Clifton Village and its lovely cafes, boutiques and pubs.

Although we're right in the city, our location is very tranquil. We're in a cul-de-sac with little traffic and a primary school at the end, so it's usually quiet in our street. We have Bristol's most stunning park right on our door step: Brandon Hill Park has a playground, exercise pitch, squirrels and of course Cabot Tower, from where you have a wonderful 360-degree view of Bristol. Please note, the park and our house are on a fairly steep hill so you'll get some exercise, no matter where you go!

There are more cool & quirky shops, pubs, record stores, museums and activities in walking distance than we could list here but we'd be very happy to make some recommendations based on your specific interests. The ancient spa city of Bath is just a 20 min train ride from Bristol Station and perfect for a day trip. Despite the central location, it is usually possible to get a free parking spot in our road.

Our home is a tall, Georgian town house (which means plenty of stairs!) with many original features, and which we renovated in 2015 with a contemporary twist. We have all the mod cons you'd need for either a short or long stay, and bikes you can borrow. For rainy days we have WiFi, Sky TV/Netflix, games and toys, endless amounts of books for all ages and a wonderful wood burner with wood for you to use. We have a Smeg cooker with 7 hobs and 3 ovens but if you don't feel like cooking, you can order a Deliveroo from 140+ restaurants thanks to our central location.

Our home has 2 double bed rooms and a kid's room with a single bed and a fold out single futon. Our bathroom has original wooden floors, his and hers sinks, a free standing roll-top bath and a large, walk-in shower. There is another small shower on the top floor and spare toilet on the ground floor.

We're fully equipped for kids: Stair gates, high chairs, night lights, bouncers, changing tables, car seats, toys, scooters and buggies.... you name it. All this will of course be put away if it's not needed. We also have two adult bikes which are available for use.

You'd be sharing the house with our cat Oski, who is very low maintenance... He'll choose food over cuddles anytime.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Moments from Park Street with its shops and restaurants, and minutes from the Harbour, where you can hop on the ferry to cross over to board the famous SS Great Britain (a big old ship) and grab a bite by the water.

We're also minutes from the Historic City Centre and St Nicholas Market, which sells fantastic street Food. The new Cabot Circus shopping centre is 15 minutes walk away. And the vibrant, cool and quirky Gloucester Road is also 15 minutes walk away.

Clifton Village is very pretty and makes for a great stroll in the afternoon. It has plenty of pubs, coffee shops, restaurants, a historic shopping arcade and some lovely boutiques. The Zoo and Suspension Bridge are also in Clifton and can be reached by foot or bus.

If you like art, don't miss out on the Arnolfini one of Europe's leading centres for the contemporary arts with a great arty book shop. It's 10 minutes walk down by the harbour. And the Watershed Cinema, which shows art, independent and foreign language films that you may not catch elsewhere.

If you bring the gang, the Aquarium is just around the corner on Millennium Square. Next to that is We The Curious, a fantastic science & exploration centre and planetarium for kids of all ages. And perfect for all weathers. The harbour (5 min walk) also boasts ferry boats, pubs on boats, street food, kids' sailing classes, more pubs, cafes & boutiques and the above mentioned, fantastic SS Great Britain, a museum ship and award winning attraction.

For a night out, you're also in the right place. The Colston Music Hall, Hippodrome Theatre and Bristol Old Vic are all just (again!) 5 minutes walk away. Craft beer pubs abound within stumbling distance. And clubs are of course dotted about all around the city centre.

When you've done all that, why not head to the historic city of Bath for a day in its famous Roman spa, some excellent shopping and traditonal afternoon tea. It's 20 minutes by train from Bristol Temple Meads station.
