We hope you like our lovely house. It's retro, cosy and we love it. We live here so the house is full of stuff. If you like sleek minimalist design please do not book ;-) It is however very child friendly with lots of toys so perfect for your family and very well situated in the heart of Bristol. Please note my (good!) reviews are from when this house was pretty much empty. We live here now and it's a very different space now, much more homely. Welcome!

The space

You will be renting the whole house. There is a double bedroom with a good, king sized double bed . The second room is our kids bedroom and it features bunk beds. (but they are full sized so adults can sleep here too) It's a perfect house for a small family or small group. You could even have a 5th person sleep on the sofa. The house is situated just a 10/15 minute walk to the city centre and is in a pretty unique part of Bristol called Montpelier and a stones throw from the famous Stokes Croft. Our house is at the top of a steep hill overlooking the centre of the city. Montpelier was Bristols very first suburb and the layout of the streets is unique due to the main roads following the original paths between the farming fields that existed before the houses were built. Developed over centuries the neighbourhood is now a protected conservation area. Be sure to take a walk around and you'll glimpse some stunning Georgian architecture and some fantastic views of Bristol. There is street art in abundance in this small district so explore some of the back streets as you wander down the hill to the city centre.

Guest access

You will be able to use the whole house except one small office room which will be locked with some boxes inside.

Interaction with guests

We will be away during your stay so you will have to be self sufficient if anything goes wrong as we wont have ready access to telephones

Other things to note

The Kitchen only has 1 camping gas stove with a single ring that works well. There is a proper fitted oven/grill, an electric kettle, an electric vegetable steamer and a slow cooker. There is also a fridge/freezer and dishwasher

There is no hot water in the taps but we have an electric shower so there is hot water for washing in the bathroom.

We have two toilets

The house is very well located. As James mentioned, the house really needs a renovation and feels not like a home but anyway the house is habitable. The photos are not 100% exact, but the main issues it has are some humidity in roof of the second room, it doesn't have proper kitchen, and it doesn't have central heating.. only a mobile heater that works great! Anyway the house is quite big and good enough for a few days staying there!

Place was very basic (pending extensive renovation works) and house did have some problems (boiler issues), but James and his wife were open, honest, pretty quick to admit these and easy to deal with. Price was fairly cheap to accommodate this. We spent nearly all our time out and about, so this was no problem for us. House is in a quirky location close to Cheltenham/Gloucester Road, with good transport links via the nearby train station and is a 10-15 min walk into the city centre. If you are after a cheap base to operate out of, then this is a pretty good bet. Dropped off some truffles that were a nice treat after a day out.

I booked my parents James's house which is situated close to Gloucester road and the city centre. A week before arrival, James has already instructed us for key retrieval. The communication was nice and smooth. My parents didn't have any problem to reach James's house at all. The house was fairly clean. Not particularly fancy looking but got all the basic needs. They enjoyed staying James's house. Recommended.

The house was really nice, and we felt very comfortable from the very beginning. Decorated in a very cool retro style and with a jungle kind of garden! We definitely loved our stay there! Thanks James and Shelley :D

Really enjoyed staying at James' house. Central location of the house was great for exploring Bristol just watch out for rush hour traffic which kept us in the car for more than an hour. I haven't met James during our stay but both him and his wife were very helpful and accommodating. Thank you guys.

A member of the Australian Cinematographers Society, James has previously received a cinematography award from the society for his work while shooting for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) based out of Beijing, China.
