About this listing
Own room in beautiful big family Victorian house overlooking docks in city centre. Stunning views, friendly family (2 adults, 1 teenager and friendly dog), all mod cons, only few mins walk from theatres, live music, restaurants etc. We are really into good food, music and the arts. Free wifi & parking.
Our house has 4 bedrooms (two of which are Airbnb rooms) over 3 floors. We have just added the second room ( https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/4315598?s=fJJk) as our son has recently moved out to go to University and we redecorated his big double room which has great views out over the river. The room is listed as "Amazing location Heart of the city" We have also just finished putting in a brand new state of the art wet room with heated mirror that has a bluetooth smartphone connection so you can shower and listen to music. This means we have two bathrooms so no queuing in the mornings.
The house was bulit in 1873 and the rooms are fairly large and the ceilings high. We have terrific views of the City Docks from the back and over the River Avon at the front. We are suituated in the centre of the city and only a short walk from cinemas and art centres such as the Arnolfini & the Watershed. The Catherdral is about a 20 min walk and M shed just 4 min walk. Nearest restaurant, the Olive Shed, is just 4 mins away too.
We have fast broadband - 100mbs

We have the River Avon to the front of the house and the City Docks to the rear with restaurants, bars and cafes just a few mins walk away. The docks is a great area to live and is not noisy. We have lots of great widlife - peregrin falcons, foxes and even an occasional badger which for the middle of a city, is great
Yes, there is a bus stop 50m away and easy access to rail and airports
Other Things to Note
Please ensure you have completed your Airbnb profile as we only accept guests who have put info about themselves - ie where they are from, what they do, any hobbies etc. Please note that this is a big old house where our family and deerhound live. The wet room and bathroom are used by us too. If you are looking for 5 star luxury, that is not us but if you want somewhere that's relaxed and comfortable, a little bit lived in places but has art, music, good food and creativity at its core, then look no further.
It is a no smoking house
