The Old Barn, Trymwood
About the home
This self catering cottage which is
3 miles from the centre of Bristol has a
direct bus link every 12 minutes and, with its lovely garden, it is an ideal place to
combine all the fun and fascination of a visit to the great city of Bristol, with the joys of a rural retreat. There are chickens in the garden and beehives and the River Trym runs alongside. There is a picnic table in the garden for guests to use when the weather is fine, and a summerhouse in which to relax .
The old barn sits at the side of the Grade 2 listed house in the historic village of Westbury on Trym and is reported to be the oldest in the village. The barn was originally part of the farm buildings, and evidence of the old range and bread oven are still in place as is the meat salting sink. There are flagstone floors, ancient stone walls and bedrooms under the eaves. There is a piano which guests are encouraged to use.

The West Country is full of interest, from great cities such as Bristol, Wells, Exeter and Plymouth to wide open spaces, rolling hills, woodland and moorland and a magnificent coastline. The coast has more than 600 miles of coastal path for the keen walker. There are wide open beaches and tiny coves and pretty fishing villages to explore. Historic houses and garden abound throughout the peninsular.

There is plenty to see and do in the great maritime port of Bristol. Museums, art galleries, theatre, fine shopping areas, the dockside with it's river boats. There are frequent festivals on the waterfront. The restored SS Great Britain is an exciting day out, as are the zoo and botanical gardens, all nearby. There are numerous parks and children's play areas, one within a short walk from the cottage.

The house is beautiful and very quaint. We stayed at the house whilst we were having a DIY wedding and Jane and Richard were amazing. They were very helpful when we first arrived and explained how to use everything and even lent us a cookery book! Then they left us to ourselves and we felt very comfortable in a wonderful house.
The upstairs carpets are made of seagrass which was really unique and for some true romance, there's a real log fire and a little stream leading up to the house. Richard and Jane collected the firewood for us. Not to mention a homemade cake and basic necessities in the cupboards.
Theres everything you need in a short walk away and then you are 10 minutes drive from all thats going on in the city. The barn is at the end of a road so you don't hear anything which is really peaceful.
I highly recommend the barn for families and couples looking for a happy medium between countryside and city. It was amazing!

We thoroughly enjoyed the 4 days we spent with our 2 children at this beautifully renovated barn. High quality bedding and linens, good temperature control, comfortable beds, spacious living area, and well equipped kitchen. The gardens are a delight for the children with hens, a swing, the river for stick races, and grassy areas for games. Plenty of nice places to walk to nearby and a wonderful park with extensive play equipment. The host and hostess are a pleasure to work with.

The Barn is furnished and decorated impeccably. We used both bedrooms (one double and one twin) and the sofabed and were all warm and comfortable. We enjoyed the large and lovely bathroom with its funky lighting! The kitchen is fairly small, but well-laid out and really well equipped. (Things like dishwasher tablets, some food basics and a home made cake were provided for us.) The sitting/dining room, complete with wood burning stove and comfy, squishy sofa is a good size. The beautiful artwork on the walls, the books and games in the cottage all make it feel like a home from home. The highlight of the week, though was being able to enjoy the peace and quiet of the garden - it feels as if you're in the middle of the countryside rather than just a few miles from Clifton, the Downs and the buzz of Bristol city centre and about 5 minutes walk from the shops, pub, coffee shops, etc of Westbury village. We found it an easy place to unwind and relax.
