The Edwardian house is in a leafy tree lined street in a suburb of Bristol just a few minutes from fantastic transport links. In less than five minutes you can be on a train which can take you to trendy Clifton or bohemian Gloucester Rd both with trendy bars and eateries in around 10 minutes. Just a few minutes more takes you into Temple Meads with links to Bath, London and beyond!
There are 4 double bedrooms and a twin which have just been renovated to a very high standard and are furnished with new high quality mattresses and bedding, the bedrooms have stripped wooden floors, to keep allergens to a minimum. Cats live here during the week but will not be present during your stay, everything is cleaned and steam mopped after they've vacated but allergy sufferers may wish to avoid or bring antihistamines. The hall is still undergoing a cosmetic update but this wont affect your stay in any way...and I hope will be finished very soon.
There is wifi throughout the house and in the lounge has a Smart TV with a Virgin Media TiVo box. ( the password is available here once booked and on the information sheet I give you when you check in) There is an HDMI port to connect a laptop should you need (please bring a cable)
I have installed a key safe near the front door making it possible to access the property if I'm not available for any reason. I like to book all my guests in personally, give a full tour and answer any questions.
The property is vast...on the ground floor there is a large kitchen diner with two tables and chairs to seat 14 plus, a snug off the kitchen ( no door between) with a sofa bed and a large lounge with cozy log burner and a further sofa bed.
3 double bedrooms occupy the next floor, the master has a brand new ensuite and the main bathroom is also fully refurbished, both have brand new Mira showers, there is also a single bed in the Red Room.
Additional guests (over 15) will be on air beds in either the Master Bedroom or lounge. All will have pillows and depending on group size, maybe sleeping bags. Please discuss with me prior to booking.
The top floor has two further bedrooms (one kingsize/one twin) and a shower room which has a new Mira shower. the shower has mains pressure hot water and two heads, one drench and a lower removable handset.
Bristol won 'European Green Capital' in 2015 and as such we are very big on recycling. Boxes are provided for rinsed glass, metal, paper & card (not tissue) and a big food bin for any food. The kitchen bin is just for tissue and plastic wrapping, we have a small wheelie bin which only gets emptied fortnightly so we have to throw away as little as possible! When booking these are part of the house rules, if I then have to go through the wheelie bin to recycle & limit rubbish and a full bin for the next guests, I will make a charge of £20 and you will have deemed to have broken the rules and receive feedback accordingly. If each guest in your group does their bit, its easy.

When booking the 'entire place' you will have access to all rooms unless specified. Sometimes if not all beds are required, I lock my daughters bedroom and the utility room is generally out of bounds. However if you are in our rooms please be respectful and don't open cupboards or drawers as this is our home and contains our personal things.
The garden is available to all but you must be quiet when outside, this is a residential area and a family live next door. There is to be no shouting, screaming, whooping, music, drinking games or reveals of 'Butlers in the buff!' outside, all this must be done indoors, any complaints from my neighbours will mean loss of your deposit and potential expulsion from the house.
Any children must be supervised around the pond and take care on the decking as it is sometimes slippery!
There is a parking space on my drive for you to use and any other vehicles should be parked OPPOSITE the front of the house on the other side. Here there is ample free parking which doesn't affect my neighbours. (Please see the photo) Do not park across drives please.
If you plan to cook there are plenty of pans, serving dishes, crockery, cutlery and glasses but please bring your own oil, foil, kitchen roll & seasoning. Once you've finished there's a dishwasher to get everything clean again, if anything gets burnt on please just leave to soak, do not scour!

I'm a single mum with 3 grown up daughters, two of which have now left home. My normal occupation is property renovation, but I have been unable to work over the last 8 months due to a prolonged illness. I am now on the mend due to a diagnosis of coelic disease ( gluten allergy) and decided as I have an amazing house, to try to recoup some of my losses by using Airbnb!
I love music and normally do bar work at many festivals over the summer.
When watching TV I tend to go for comedy or something not to taxing!
I have had to be creative with my diet due to my gluten allergy so become something of a foodie.
I love to travel to hot sunny destinations but also love skiing. I can ride horses, ice and roller skate, love the sea and the great outdoors...I feel like this is something I'd write on a dating site!! How am I doing, are you hooked yet? I also have a good sense of humour ...!!
