The house has a back garden with seating, mostly secluded from neighbours so great for sunbathing. The neighbours are friendly, noise never having been an issue. The kitchens small and old. Breakfast can be provided, Vegi, vegan or ethical meat @ £6pp :D Sorry to add this on but.. Although I'm not a posh house/ hotel, 4*s mean I cant host so 5*s ONLY excepted! Any issues talk to me 1st or you will receive neg feedback from me and not be allowed to stay again. On a good note, its code entry! :D

The space

Adult Couples of any kind are welcome, as are babies and tots. cats and dogs to be kept in the room, but not available as an option for the Sofabed room as I use this room as a practice room with my clients so it needs to be pet-hair free, but please do check my other rooms availability.

Guest access

Kitchen, bathroom, back garden, living room with prior permission. Access code means you can arrive at anytime so please ignore to 2am limit

Interaction with guests

If I've time I can socialise with you, if not then I'm likely going to be having minimal contact. I will always knock on doors before walking in and expect the same for my room..

Other things to note

I have 2 cats, 1 old, 1 kitten, and so I have a litter tray in the hall I clean regularly, but if this is likely to cause offence, please don't book as its a nessecity of life atm. my pets are not allowed out the front door, and if I'm out they must stay in the kitchen/ garden so please be careful when coming in and out of the front door that they don't escape! (There is a second inside door you may use if your concerned about one running past you. Also be sure that other doors are left as they are found. Guests can arrive at anytime so please ignore the 2am stated last check in, it doesn't provide later / other accurate options

The all-day check in is really convenient. Sheena is a nice person and a good host, we had a brief chat when I arrived and she offered tea in the kitchen. However, I didn't feel cosy, the room had a rather cold atmosphere. Communication was easy.

Sheena's house is in a great location, very close to the centre. The room we stayed in was spacious and it had really awesome tree wallpaper. The bed was OK but maybe better for one person than two. Sheena was very helpful if we needed anything and was very generous to offer her food and let us cook. She was very easy going and open to you using her home as you needed to. Check in was super easy and the price was excellent. Because I stayed three nights I would have preferred more cleanliness as it can make me lose peace of mind (Sheena did say she didn't have a vacuum at the moment so I get that). I also couldn't use the bath, even though Sheena's rules were to wash it out, people didn't adhere to that, I assume. It still has everything you need and the people that come and go are very friendly. I had a good experience overall and loved her cats too. It is definitely worth it for one night, if you are on a budget and want to be in walking distance to the centre.

Very nice and big room, the bed is very comfortable, and there is plenty of storage. Having a code for the house instead of a key is very useful! Sheena is very nice, and a very interested person!

Im a lil shy but freindly and very passionate about many ethical issues in life... herbal/ wild food/ nutrition healing, the environment and threatened peoples and animals, healthier human- animal relation building, eg natural horsemanship, permeculture. I'm a member and previous worker for Greenpeace. Im very much a dancing fan, in bristol mostly d&b, darkstep, political folk, circus beats and performance, 5 rhythms, and round fires where I can! Im helpful, strong, practical and very artistically inclined. Im well travelled though mostly in Europe and I'm not to impressed with having to consider paying for visas and permits in the near future!!!
