I fell in love with this house and miniature woodland when I first met him but he needed some serious love and attention. So I spent a long time renovating him whilst aiming to keep the original feeling and character of the place. The end result is quirky, original and totally unique thanks to a peppered mix of antiques, personal random treasures and beautiful vintage and antique wallpapers. On the ground floor you'll find a lovely sunny sitting room with an open fire, bespoke inlayed mirror work and a huge, comfy sofa. There is also a sofa bed ( sleeping two) and a single day bed with another single pull out trundle stored underneath. The Rock'n'Roll kitchen features bespoke hand-carved peacock panel doors and a leopard print floor. There is also a bedroom with a double bed and a bat...

Upstairs there are four more double bedrooms (1 with a double bed and an ensuite, one with a king sized bed and access to a Jack and Jill bedroom and two twin rooms with single beds). The Jack and Jill bathroom is accessed from the hall. This bathroom has a big bath with another rainwater shower over. The beautiful woodland garden features an 'English Faery Dell', complete with frogs and mirror balls, and there's a sheltered South facing terrace with tables and chairs, perfect for al fresco dining in the summer. We have no off road parking; its inner city and the house is Georgian. Parking is residents only parking with meter parking as well. I will be able to supply a couple of parking permits should you book during the week. It is free at the weekends and after 5pm and before 9am. The House is tucked away a few minutes walk from the most happening place in the West Country; Stokes Croft. Bristol has a thriving music scene, great shops, galleries and restaurants and gorgeous architecture and the house is located in the heart of Bristol's buzzy Montpelier area, the old merchants' quarter. For foodies there's the award-winning Bell's Dinner, the cheap and cheerful multi award winning Thali Café, Bristol's favourite bakery Herbert's, veggie and vegan Cafe Kino, one of the very best places for brunch on the planet Kath and Kims and The Mela, a fantastic Indian takeaway all in a minute or twos walk. For nightlife there's Hamilton House and Lakota, all on nearby hippedy hip Stokes Croft. A ten minute stroll will take you to Bristol's Gloucester Road with its many independent shops and cafes or down to the high-end Cabolt Circus. In twenty minutes you can reach the Harbourside or the Clifton areas. Bristol is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful West Country, and Bath is half an hour drive away as is the seaside. An hour's drive will drive you to Glastonbury, the Cotswolds and Wales, and a couple of hours will get you to Stratford, Devon, Oxford and London. The train from Temple Meads takes less than 10 minutes to get to Bath; stay on it and you will be in London in another hour and a half. Please note that check in is currently the standard from 5pm and check out is 11am. If you require early check in or late check out then please expect to pay for it. Bank holidays are a minimum of three nights at the weekend price. 24th - 26th December are at weekend prices. 31st December is £1000 and the 1st Jan is at the weekend price. More

About the neighborhood
Bristol is famous for its arcitecture and culture. It is a generous easy going city that is a joy to amble around and easy to get to and from. We have it all here: a thriving independant music scene and the fabulous Colston Hall ( a ten minute walk away); great art galleries and a wealth of ground breaking artists ( and other people's wall painting artists!); and lots of culture ( historically bloody) for the vultures. We have circus ( the infamous invisible circus's residency at the old fire station is just down the road); and world famous theatre ( Bristol Old Vic is an easy 20 minute stroll); burlesque and Banksies. There is a festival for each weekend of the summer season and always something to discover around every corner in this neck of the woods. This area is the hip area of Brist...
How to get there
Bristol International Airport is only 11 miles away with the budget special Easy Jet flying in and out. We have the best transport links in the UK. The house is an automobiles hop skip and jump from the M32 which takes you out of Bristol and onto the M4 and M5. Want to look out the window? Bristol Temple Meads is 2 miles away where trains will take you up country and down and roundabout. Bath is only ten minutes down track, stay on the train and another hour and a half will deliver you into the smily kindly jaws of outr metropolis that is London Town.
