Felt very welcome and comfortable at Howard's. He always checked on my well-being and comfort in his house. The room was exactly what I needed and was comfortable and clean. I attended Bristol Ground School and stayed 9 nights. It was easy to get to the school and back, it is near shops and restaurants. Howard lets his guests use the kitchen and the washing machine/tumble dryer so you have all the conveniences of a self catering unit. Had a sharing bathroom with the other tenant, but it was always kept spotless. WiFi was nice and fast too. No smoking allowed so there was no residual smoke scents around. I had an excellent time at Howard's place and will certainly use it again when I am around there. Excellent value
Most agreeable in every respect. Would therefore recommend to anyone
Howard was a great host - everything was comfortable and as described and he was very friendly and helpful with recommendations.
Thanks for a lovely stay and I hope to be back at some stage!
I still stay at Howards house and I am still happy :) Everything is fine and Howard is such a friendly and nice person. He also invited me for dinner and he is an amazing cook. He helps me everytime when I need help with something. Looking forward to stay here till October.
Howard is a great host, experienced, organised and reliable. He is a gentleman and lovely thoughtful, intelligent company. My stay with him was a treat - highly recommended!
The accommodation was as described - a home from home, modern comfortable and clean, with a smart bathroom, and a large well equipped kitchen, to prepare meals in.
The secure, lockable bedrooms overlooked a pleasant garden, and open fields. The location is residential and peaceful. It is well served by regular buses, to Weston and a Sainsburys superstore. It makes a great base to explore the pleasant towns of Weston and Worle, along with the surrounding countryside. All made for a relaxing weeks stay.
Howard, kindly met me from my train on arrival, then I had my own keys to come and go as I pleased, affording good privacy. I actually didn't see Howard every day, as he also has a busy social life. He is a, 'cat person', and a skilled musician. I was lucky enough to meet his lovely cats, and also hear a piano rehearsal. Both were additional treats to a great stay I would most happily repeat. Cheers Howie!
Once again, a great friendly stay at Howard's, being invited to meals with his friends which made for relaxing and fun evenings. Howard really puts in an effort to make all feel welcome. And I learnt more about the composing of John Rutter!
Howard is an exceptionally hospitable and informative host and bends over backwards to help with everything - excellent communication and interesting, with a relaxed friendly attitude which so helps with being a guest in his large lovely home.
He has an interesting and busy life which I couldnt keep up with at all!
The kitchen is happily shared with any device you might need and more, lovely modern bathroom and the room is bright, v. clean with lovely views to fields at back, so you feel like you're in the country but with close access to everything - v. frequent bus services & express one to Bristol.
Shared with two elderly cats also, who sleep most of time anyway, their noses taking intermittent trips to food bowls of course......
I liked it so much, I'm going back next week!
See you later Howard and thanks for everything.

About the Host, Howard
Semi-retired secondary school music teacher. Detached house with two spare bedrooms. I live in North Worle. Weston super Mare is a typical Somerset coastal resort and is 4 miles away. 30 minutes on public transport to Bristol.
Guests often comment on the lovely views of the open countryside from both of the bedrooms. Please note that during 2015 there are planned to be some re-landscaping works undertaken in the fields, which will be visible from the rooms.
Into music ( varied tastes from Shostakovich to John Rutter and pop music of the 60s and 70s particularly Cilla and Elton John), eating out, cooking, travel (I love city breaks in Europe..and can't resist a stay on a Greek island), cycling, reading, 20th Century history, walking, visiting cathedrals, tennis and good conversation. I grow a few of my own organic vegetables and try to be environmentally friendly in the house. I regularly visit Brentford FC in London to watch a football match.
The house is convenient for Bristol Ground School ( Clevedon/Kenn) which is about 15 minutes drive up the M5.
Living on my own here and the house is shared by my friendly cats called Henley and Tinsel.
No smoking is permitted in the house.
