This private bedroom is one of 3 guest rooms within an indoor courtyard (atrium), all set in a self built Eco house, surrounded by woods, scrap, art and artists, workshops, walks, etc...if you are in need of creative inspiration or encouragement , or you just want a quiet couple of nights in the country.. That's us!! 10 miles from Bath and Bristol. Close to Glastonbury, Wells, Stonehenge.

The space
What makes it unique ? Well, what doesn't!!
First of all I would suggest reading some of our reviews. We are very proud to have over 1000 reviews across our 3 listings, and you won’t find many that are unhappy :-). There are probably not many places like this (in England at least)... It's more like a West Coast USA house as seen in Lloyd Khans amazing books (look him up).
This is our own self-built eco house set in 5 or 6 acres of its own land. The house itself is in a private area, but within the grounds of the property there are many other spaces including a therapy suite ( you can book separately for massage, acupuncture, hypnotherapy etc) , workshops for metal and woodwork, recording and rehearsal studio, a part time vegan cafe, a huge and eclectic collection of obscure artefacts from aeroplanes to gypsy caravans, and anything in between!! It is also home to upwards of 20 other people who are engaged in work with circus/ festivals and events management. There is an early stage forest garden , solar hot water and electric and more being added daily. There is always something new at Rockaway!
If you're looking for somewhere fastidiously neat and tidy or you're scared of spiders it's probably not for you , but if you like what you see, we'd love to have you here ....,( although of course we do our best to keep it neat and tidy, I am just trying to put off over- fussy guests :-)
We like to think we understand the ethos of Airbnb and the desire to change the world for the better by encouraging conversation and the sharing of ideas. We have found the whole experience to be thoroughly rewarding and we hope you will too.


Please note we have another (cheaper) room available in the house, with two single beds and a shared toilet, and also an apartment that can sleep 4 comfortably. We are able to accommodate extra people, so if you're traveling with kids or friends and think our listed rooms are too small to fit all of you, please enquire.
Look forward to meeting you. Mark and Marta

Guest access
Due to Covid19, we won't be able to offer the use of our kitchen for safety reasons. The will be hot drinks making facilities in the room. We do have a vegan cafe on site, which currently offers weekday lunches and Sunday roast dinners.
Our vegetable garden with a bench and a dining table overlooking the area welcomes visitors too :-) You are also more than welcome to visit the rest of the site where you will find loads of interesting things!!
We have lots of parking space, so parking a van or a caravan is not a problem.

Other things to note
We rent out other rooms in the house, so if you're looking for a space for more people, please get in touch or look on my profile for other listings.
We ask that no meat is cooked in the house.



Our full address:
Rockaway House
Eastcourt Rd
Temple Cloud
BS39 5BU

If you're driving you can find us via GPS/sat nav as Rockaway Park or Cloudhill Commercials or Quarry Garage, although please note our lane has a sharp angle and you can't turn into it coming on Eastcourt Rd from the A37 direction. You need to go to the end of the road, turn around and come back the other way
Coming south from the A37 from Bristol, it's better to turn left in the village of Temple Cloud into Temple Inn Lane (opposite Texaco garage). Follow the road through the houses and down the hill into the countryside and you'll come to a T junction, at which you turn right. Follow the winding lane for one mile and then take the next right into Eastcourt Rd under the bridge. Follow the road up the steep hill and sharply round to the left. After about 500 meters you'll see a right turning up a steep hill with a hanging sign saying Cloudhill Commercials and a wooden one for Rockaway. Follow the track up the hill and turn sharply to your right and the house will be in front of you at the end of the driveway. Park on the right hand side if possible.

Location

Temple Cloud, Bath and North East Somerset, United Kingdom

The house is set in approx 6-7 acres of land part of which used to be a scrapyard and some of which we still run as such. There are woods and great walks very close by and good bus connections for Bristol, Bath, Wells and Glastonbury. We are about half a mile from the village of Temple Cloud in a secluded, redundant stone quarry. There are mature oak trees all around the house and the site.
There are various activities happening in the adjacent yard, including a vegan cafe, music studio, solar powered block printing, a barber shop... If you're looking for inspiration or looking to meet people to help further your ideas and plans , we may be able to point you in the right direction or hook you up with the right people... I'm hoping that the B and B will just help to make further and far reaching connections and not just be a soulless interaction... Of course though we are just as happy for people to come and just chill.
Tourist attractions in the area include: Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury Tor, Roman Baths, Wells Cathedral, Wooky Hole Caves, Bristol city and all it's attractions from amazing graffiti art to Brunel's architectural achievements.

I moved from Poland to the UK in 1998 and lived in London until a few years ago when I met my partner Mark and ditched the city to become a country girl. I always loved the countryside and spending as much time outdoors as possible, so the only thing that could make me happier is to be able to make a living out of it! We have plenty of space to share. Up until I moved here I was always planning the next trip to somewhere, I spent nearly half of my time traveling. I loved discovering new places and going back to the familiar ones, changing the scene, the climate, the food, the people... but now I just can't get enough of staying at home! I enjoy gardening, films (I worked in a cinema in London for 15 years), reading (many different things), live music, vegan cooking, exercising, but also just good old house keeping - cleaning and improving the space and making people feel good in it. I try to keep a healthy lifestyle and be as self sufficient as possible. We also rent out apartments in Morocco, Essaouira, so please get in touch if interested!
