My place is "Very Bristol!"Brilliantly designed, great sense of spaciousness and lightness. The quirky loft space is like sleeping in your own personal tower and the sense of height is enhanced when you exit onto the roof terrace. Friendly area.

The space

My home is the top flat of the top house at the top of the steepest residential street in England, reputedly! In the flat and on the roof terrace the views of Bristol and beyond are immense. The sleeping area is a perfect, small loft full of white linen with a beautiful, bright, light sky view and with a spot to store your everyday things, and space downstairs to store larger items. You will have private access to the roof from your space and I can recommend it for morning coffee, lunch and evening drinks! And any smokers are welcome to indulge whilst admiring the view. The living area downstairs is an open plan kitchen, table and lounge - all with light and bright views of Bristol. And the shared, spacious bathroom includes toilet and a shower over free standing bath. The style of the apartment is vintage beach hut with vertigo inducing views!

You can walk (12mins) from the train station and into town it takes 20 minutes, or a quick bus ride down the hill.Just around the corner is Arnos Vale, a 50 acre cemetery, which is lovely for a walk, is vibrant and full of wildlife or a guided walk.

There is an excellent cafe, Moroccan restaurant and local amenities close by and Totterdown is a very friendly and picturesque neighrbourhood. The first Bristol Arts Trail was started in Totterdown so the area is very creative and vibrant. My local, The Oxford, is a brilliant local music venue which it combines with knitting, darts and poker nights! My other local is The Shakespeare, which has great live music and quiz nights. My other, other, local is The Star and Dove, famous for its 15th-18th century menu, extensive wine list and its scotch eggs. Its next to the brilliant Victoria park, so combining the two makes for a great evening.

Included in your stay is towels, fresh linen, tea, coffee, basic breakfast, wireless internet and easy parking. If you wish to use the kitchen, let me know and I will show you the ropes and for those staying for longer there is cupboard space for supplies.

Well behaved dogs are welcome. My son is also here from time to time.

As a relative newcomer to Bristol I can pass on tips of places and areas that will delight. I love travelling and look forward to vicariously doing that by you visiting! Its super easy to walk to the train station and catch a bus to the airport in an hour, then you can go anywhere! The bus stop at the bottom of the stairs will get you into town v quick. The high location and bespoke interior decor really make this space a classic bnb experience!

Hi all, the main house rule is respect, followed by relaxed. If there is a mess you made then tidy it up and all will be fine. Any major damage must be paid for. Only invited guests can be brought back to the flat. You will have the walk of the flat but I ask for reasonable quiet after 11pm,
Thank you

If you miss home and need a place to nurse yourself back to health, Helen's is the place to be. Bristol brings out the worst and best in me but Helen's place is a haven to teach you to be good with yourself and learn. It's convenient near the bus stop and on a beautiful street and hill where pastel homes live. Her rooftop was the place to be at next is the kitchen I cooked up a storm every morning took Long lavender baths I can't say enough thanks to Helen for accommodating me on such short notice to nurse my syncope episodes. But thank you Helen I will be back! Much love and god bless, illya

I love to travel and I love being settled in the great city of Bristol. I recently changed careers from organic farmer to running my own business as an all round handy person. My son Jake stays with me on a Friday night and Saturdays generally involve lego and, well, lego. We also go to the SS great Britain and the zoo, alot. We love our local(s) and the relaxed Bristol scene, of which there is everything to meet all requirements, within a totally palatable distance. I love the old man ale pubs with jazz on a Sunday afternoon and the circus scene and how many people cycle in the city and ALOT of other things about Bristol, which I will happily enthuse with you about. I am a relaxed host.
