Description

The space

Having retired in 2015 we've renovated the independent flat so that everything is in place to ensure our guests have a relaxing and enjoyable time.

We live full-time in the house above the flat and so will usually be on hand to help if needed - but will not intrude. We can advise on places to visit and have sampled many of the local eateries ourselves!

There are plenty of things to do within very easy walking distance. All the places depicted in the photos can be walked to within a 15 minute stroll.
The ss Great Britain is 2/3 minutes away, the harbour less than a minute.

The city centre is 15 minutes, the Bristol Hippodrome and Colston Hall less than 20 minutes, the larger shops 20 minutes and the railway and coach stations are each about 25 minutes' walk.

Buses are also an easy way to get further afield; a free car parking space is available if you do travel by car. (Please request in advance).

Guest access

The entire flat and courtyard garden is for the use of our guests. No-one else will enter the flat whilst you are staying. The flat has its own entrance. We try to be at home when guests arrive, to make sure they can operate equipment and more importantly to make them welcome; if we are unavailable for any reason then a key box, by the front door, will be in use.

Interaction with guests

We live on the premises and can also be contacted on mobile phone if questions arise.

The neighbourhood

Bristol is a vibrant city and the historic harbour area is particularly amazing. The harbour is just a stone's throw from the flat. The culture of the city is diverse and this is reflected in the street markets, galleries, museums, cinemas, shops and eateries. There is a mini organic supermarket five minutes' walk from the flat as well as a plethora of coffee shops, bars and other local traders. There is no shortage of places to visit whatever the weather.

Much of the city can be covered by walking or cycling but buses are also frequent. Travelling the inner city by car can be frustrating as traffic is slow!

Getting around

Buses are frequent, neighbouring Bath is a 12 minute train journey and the main bus and train stations are each a 25 minute walk. The Bristol Hippodrome and Colston Hall are both within a 20 minute pleasant walk along the harbourside. The local bus stop is 50 yards up the road and the buses which pass the house take you to the city shops or the railway station. The airport 'flyer' bus stop is within a ten minute walk. A car parking space can be provided on request, without charge, outside the flat.

Other things to note

We offer a minimum 2 night stay, with a maximum of one month.


House Rules

Sorry, no pets.

We spent a whole week at Derek and Sara's flat and had a wonderful time. Whether you're relaxing in one of the armchairs with your feet in the plush carpet, sleeping in the soft sheets of the comfortable bed or cooking in the modern and well equipped kitchen, it really feels like a home away from home. We were travelling with a 3-month old baby, which can be tricky, but it was made easier by plenty of seating space in the living room to feed him comfortably, a bedroom big enough that he could sleep with us in his travel cot, and a washing machine very handy for stained baby clothes. Derek and Sara made sure we had everything we needed and did all they could to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They really provide an outstanding service. The location is also perfect for a relaxing holiday, being minutes away from the docks, the SS Great Britain, and all the new eateries. Thanks to the slopes and lifts integrated in the design, we were able to enjoy them even with the buggy. To sum it up, this is a really nice and homely flat to stay in!

Well, it was a pleasure to host your little family and we are so pleased that you had a good holiday, despite some inclement weather towards the end. Thank you for taking the time to write such a full (and positive) review. We hope it will give others with little ones the confidence to book. Best wishes, Sara and Derek.

We've stayed in several cottages and appartments in recent years, but this was our first AirBnB experience. We stayed in Sara and Derek's flat for two nights and it's one of the best, most comfortable places we've stayed to date. Sara is a lovely host who made everything incredibly easy from start to finish, checking on details of our arrival a week before and asking about our preferences for the generous 'starter pack' she provides (teas, coffee, milk, bread, eggs, fruit...and more). She sent very clear directions (do follow these to avoid getting caught up in traffic!) and instructions for arrival. When we got there, Sara welcomed us very warmly and showed us around the flat, making sure we knew where everything was, how it all worked, and how to get hold of her if we needed anything (we didn't - absolutely everything was provided). She also checked in by text the following day in case we needed anything. The flat is very well equipped and was immaculately clean, and we really felt that Sara and Derek had taken great care to make their guests feel comfortable and welcome. It was also lovely and quiet, which was a real bonus given its fabulous central location within easy walking distance of the quay, cinemas, theatres, city centre shopping, historic Bristol etc. We'll definitely book again the next time we're in Bristol. Thanks for a great weekend!

Wow, what a positive and fulsome review - thank you so much; perhaps we should hire you as our PR consultants?! We are just delighted that you had such a good stay - that is what gives us greatest pleasure. Best wishes, Sara and Derek.

Sara and Derek both retired in 2015. We thoroughly enjoy living in Bristol and belong to a local community group which aims to further enhance our local area and make it more accessible to others.
We both come from large families and enjoy times with them as well as with our many long-standing friends. Meals out, walking, swimming and entertaining are all quite high on our agenda. We feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful city and hope to share this experience with those we meet through airbnb.
