About this listing
Montpelier and Stokes Croft are vibrant and quirky and my Bird house is a little haven just down the hill from it all. The double room is comfy, spacious and provides a perfect retreat from a nice dose of Bristol culture.
This is the room you will be staying in. There is a large comfy double bed with my screen-printed lampshades!
The house is situated right in the heart of Montpelier. Across the street are Bell’s Diner and the Thali Café, both award winning restaurants. With the delicious Mela Indian takeaway and Herberts bakery only a stones throw from the house! It takes only a 15 minute walk into the centre of Bristol through the vibrant streets of Stokes Croft.
You can help yourself to fresh coffee and a good selection of teas in the morning. The bakery always has fresh bread and croissants every morning but it’s always a good idea to arrive before 9am!
Interaction with Guests
I usually work from home or my studio which is only a 5 minute walk from my house so will be in and out throughout the day.
My neighbourhood is so friendly and there is always something going on within a 5 minute walk away- lots of live music and good food.
The train station is a 3 minute walk from my house with trains leaving every 20 mins to half an hour. The bus station is also very close- just a 10 minute walk from Stokes Croft.
Other Things to Note
I hope staying in the birdhouse will be a unique and exciting experience with lots of weird and wonderful art work on the walls and the best of Bristol's culture right outside the door!
It is important to mention that Picton Street is a vibrant and lively part of Bristol and can sometimes be a little noisy on the street outside during the weekend.
I like guests to feel at home and help themselves to tea and coffee. Please wash up after yourselves though. We are used to smokers but only outside please.
Het huis is bijzonder, en de buurt ook, levendig, veel mogelijkheden om te eten en dicht bij het centrum. Alex is gastvrij, je kan zelf koffie en thee zetten en er ligt een lijstje met leuke dingen om te doen. De kamer en ook sanitaire voorzieningen zijn prima.
Cannot recommend staying with Alex at The Bird House enough! She was a perfect host; a lovely friendly person who made me feel completely comfortable straight away and ensured I had everything I needed, plus helped me out with finding nice places to eat, local information etc. This is not to mention the house itself! The room and guest bathroom are beautifully kept and the house is filled with Alex's wonderful art. It is situated in Montpelier; a friendly, vibrant part of Bristol with great places to go and easy access to the rest of the city. It was a truly lovely experience to stay in such a nice place, especially with such nice, helpful people!
I stayed two days with Alex and it was an amazing experience! Though it was my first time travelling in the UK, Alex and Paul made me feel safe and comfortable. The decoration of their house is so unique! And if you love little things, you should definitely go and visit the house! Both Alex and Paul are so nice and friendly and always give me advice about where to go and where to eat! :) One last thing to mention, Stay in Bristol, stay in 'The bird house'!
Alex was a very welcoming and helpful host. The room was charming and the bed was comfortable so we had a good night sleep. The location was great and very convenient with lots of places to eat and drink near by. We thought that the house and our host were wonderful and we would love to stay at the Bird House when we visit Bristol in the future. Thank you Alex!
It is a lovely room in a very nice neighbourhood. The room was bigger than expected. Alex (and her friend Paul) are very friendly hosts and make you feel welcome at once.
Alex was really a wonderful host ! Her house is super lovely, we love all the paintings and decorations around the house. The bed is super comfortable. The garden also is very nice. We really felt like home during our stay there. The area of the house is also wonderful, many cafes and restaurants. I'm sorry I had to leave in the middle of the night to catch my flight, I think it was loud and sorry if this woke you up Alex ! We really enjoyed the conversations we had and definitely will stay here again next time we are back in Bristol!
