My sister and I enjoyed our stay at Maggie's house. We biked from Bath to Bristol along the old railway path and her house was very conveniently located for that. We also enjoyed spending Saturday evening at her local pub. She allowed us to store our bikes safely in her back yard and to keep them there all day until our departure for the train station.
Room was booked only an hour or so before arrival on a friday night and Maggie was so helpful with directions to help us get their quickly. Room was immaculate, very quiet, comfortable with good teas :) it was even nicer than the photo! Many thanks, Becca
Bei Maggie Cowan-Hughes zu wohnen, hat mir und meinen erwachsenen Kindern sehr gut gefallen. Wie ich schon aus dem Mailverkehr vor dem Aufenthalt vermutet hatte, ist Maggie eine sehr nette Frau. Ihr Haus ist in einem sehr guten Zustand, hell und freundlich gestaltet, mit künstlerischem Hauch und angenehmem Flair. Die Zimmer befinden sich im ersten Stock, die Bäder (1 Duschbad und 1 Extra-Bad nur mit Toilette und Waschbecken) befinden sich im Erdgeschoss. Es ist sehr sauber und ordentlich im Haus.
Am schönsten fand ich, dass Maggie uns Tipps gab, wo wir in der Nähe gut essen gehen konnten. Und für uns als Deutsche war es erstaunlich, in einem nahe gelegenen (indischen) Supermarkt Vollkornbrot kaufen zu können.
Ich freue mich, irgendwann einmal wieder bei Maggie zu wohnen, denn woanders würde ich in Bristol nicht sein wollen :-))))
Dear Maggie, thank you for everything! :-)

Maggie was such a nice host! Despite us bringing a friend who did not have a place to stay she welcomed us all! Super Lovely and cosy house in a really nice area of Bristol! I can highly recommend a visit to both Maggie and Bristol! Thank you Maggie!
Splendid place, very clean, great pub round the corner and more than happy to accommodate our bicycles,
Maggie was extremely welcoming. We had the large front room which had plenty of room, comfortable bed. Bathroom is downstairs however is clean and tidy. Maggie was helpful in suggesting restaurants down the way as the local pub was full on a Friday night. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Maggie.

About the Host, Maggie
Hi and thanks for looking at my profile.
I'm from England and have been dividing my time between Buenos Aires and the UK since 2002, offering Airbnb accommodation in both countries. I've recently
sold up in Argentina and am now in Bristol full time.
I welcome Airbnb visitors to my three spare bedrooms on a room-only basis. There is tea, coffee, and high speed wifi in each room with cable tv in two of the rooms. My visitors come to this thriving city on holiday, for weddings, and many stay for work commitments. I'll help you get around and find what you need in this lovely corner of England. It has been a great pleasure to host guests from all over the world. I find that Airbnb guests enjoy the informality of staying in a home rather than a hotel.
My passion is tango and, lately, teaching a breathing method called Buteyko, which has helped me overcome lifelong asthma - websites for any info are naturalbreathingtraining and buteykoargentina.
If you have any questions about my listings please do get in touch.
best wishes and good hunting!
