The space

This is a unique house in the heart of Montpelier. I have feathered this nest with the wild imaginings of far flung places and antique treasures. I rescued my home from rack and ruin because he was a happy house with a good vibe and because the garden had a miniture woodland. He has been renovated sympathetically and is full of magic and character.

It is a comfortable home with a soul warming open fire in the light filled sitting room that bounces off the inlayed mirror work and a massive sofa to have a cuddle-a-thon. There is also a sofa bed that sleeps two and a single day bed with a pull out trundle bed sleeping two.

On this floor there is another wonderful room with the original stone floor and two antique large single beds.

The Rock and Roll Kitchen has hand carved peacock panel doors and a leopard print floor and everything you need to entertain and an infinatly bigger and better table than the one pictured!!! Still please note that this table only seats 10 at a squeeze. I want my house and those in it to enjoy a relaxing living/dancing space rather than a dining room so have not chosen to sacrifice the sitting room. We do however have fold away tables and table cloths that can be easily set up in the sitting room to allow our guests the option of dining together in a fabulous setting.

There is a second bathroom on this floor with a rain water and power shower.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms. Three have double beds, and one a king sized bed. All are wrapped in vintage wallpapers and peppered with antiques. One has a beautiful ensuite with a huge bath and another rainwater and power shower that can also be accessed from the hallway making it a family bathroom.

The garden is my favorite work of art. The mini wood is an English faery dell and there is a rose covered terrace for basking in the sun; (the garden is South facing and sheltered ) ; and entertaining. Giving it a drink if its parched will be appreciated.

Montpelier is the artists quarter in Bristol. The house is right in the heart of it; you are two minutes walk to some of the best eats Bristol has to offer; award winning foodie restaurant Bell's Dinner, the award winning cheap eats veggie thali cafe, the king of Indian Takeaways The Mela (my favorite) and the fabulous Kath and Kims where Bristol's chefs come for incredible brunches. Another couple of minutes takes you up onto the infamous Stokes Croft where you can rock out at the Croft, reclaim the rave at Lekota, catch the buzz around Hamilton House, feed your face at festival favourites Pieminister and Pokos, and thats just for starters. A ten minute stroll will take you up to Gloucester Road to its independent shops or down to the swanky Cabolt Circus. In and easy twenty minute amble you will reach the Harbourside and Clifton.

We are an automobile hop skip and a jump onto the M32. Bristol has it all; a thriving independant music scene, great galleries, culture for the vultures and fabulous arcitecture. We have circus and world famous theatre, Burlesque and Banksies and a festival most weekends. If you want to explore our amazing part of the country then Bristol is the perfect base. 10 minutes by train or 30 minutes drive will deliver you into Bath. You can be at the seaside in 40 minutes, Glastonbury is an hours drive, as are the Cotswolds and Wales. A couple of hours will take you to Stratford and Devon and London. Alternatively 1 hour and 40 minutes will take you to Paddington and into the gentle jaws of London. Parking is on the street, there is no charge on Saturday and Sunday. The rest of the week there are on street parking charges between 9am and 5pm. If you are staying with us during the week then we can allocate you parking permits but this needs to be discussed and agreed because we have a fixed number of them.

The minimum stay at weekends is two nights at the peak rate of £1500 for two nights.
We can only accept one night bookings if another weekend night has already been taken.
Bank holidays are a minimum 3 nights at the peak rate of £750 per night.

House Rules
Not suitable for pets
Check in is anytime after 5PM

Ok so. Security keep it shut ( not on the latch) and lock it.

Think about who you let into my house. Would you let them into yours? If it gets stolen, damaged or broken then you gotta pay.

A maximum of 14 can use the house at any one time regardless of whether they are sleeping or not.... Any more need to be disclosed and paid for in advance.

Get the mood lighting right at night.

Have A Ball but please respect noise levels outside at night. The house is in a buzzy cosmopolitan area with a lot of people having a lot of fun but unfortunately this is not Spain or Italy or France so in order to manage the neighbours' right to a quiet life we have the usual noise policy in place. No noise outside after 11pm please. Squealing /screaming/shouting/howling at the moon after 11pm will be frowned upon and could lead to ejection. Ditto to sound systems.

No smoking in the house please; outside is of course fine.

A great house which is as described. Really quirky and it is a great location Montpellier has some great bars and not far from town. Samantha was always quick to respond and we were met by her cleaner who showed us around. The kitchen was big enough for us to cook a meal for 11 and the outside garden was great for sitting in the sun having a meal. Highly recommended.

This place is out of this world. Fantastically equipped, enchanting, big, full of interesting stuff. Our huge group with lots of kids had an amazing time. Samantha & Sean were kind, reliable and the house is a very special place. And you can't beat the location, Montpelier is possibly the coolest place in the world.

Great, spacious house which easily accommodated 14. Easy walk into the city, and nice communal area with a fire. Even came with a complimentary bottle of alcohol!

We had a great experience in Samantha's house. We booked the house for a week as we were working in Bristol for a few days and were very glad we were staying there. After a long day at work, it was great to relax in such a beautiful house. It's really central, yet on a quiet street with a beautiful garden. Prior to our arrival communication with Samantha was easy and smooth, our arrival was super easy. We'd definitely go back there if we need to go back to Bristol again.

The house is original, unique, perfectly equipped and with personality beyond your wildest dream. If you are looking for a magical place to stay with the right balance of eccentricity, space and fun, then this fits the bill. Clearly an enormous amount of work had been put in to get the house to its marvelous condition, and Samantha and team need to be applauded. Very easy and straightforward to work with, and an absolute pleasure.

Great house in a great neighbourhood. The house was lovely and perfect for a hen party. The open fire was especially appreciated during our rainy stay.

It was indeed MAGICAL - what an awesome house ooozing love and happiness with its beautifully crafted interior. Could not have asked for more. Bristol treated us to a spectacular display of rain, rain and more rain but it didn't matter as we had each other and this cosy, 'sunny' house to keep us warm and dry - not to mention entertained : ) Thank you so much Samantha and Sean for your help and for giving us a truly memorable trip with friends gathered from the 4 corners - a great way to welcome 2016. The kids all loved it too and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

profffessssional faery. Love nature; no one can do it better. Love twists and turns. Love dancing. Spend a lot of time gazing; a lot of it at the same thing. I read cards and keep my crystal ball in my great great Aunties sock. When I travel I dont do it by the book. I have started collecting bibles. Big ones.
