I fell in love with this house and miniature woodland when I first met him but he needed some serious love and attention. So I spent a long time renovating him whilst aiming to keep the original feeling and character of the place. The end result is quirky, original and totally unique thanks to a peppered mix of antiques, personal random treasures and beautiful vintage wallpapers.
On the ground floor you'll find a lovely sunny sitting room with an open fire, bespoke inlayed mirror work and a huge, comfy sofa. There is also a sofa bed ( sleeping two) and a single day bed with another single pull out trundle stored underneath.
The Rock'n'Roll kitchen features bespoke hand-carved peacock panel doors and a leopard print floor. There is also a snug bedroom stuffed with books and two large single antique French beds and a bathroom with power shower. Upstairs there are four more double bedrooms and another bathroom.
The beautiful woodland garden features an 'English Faery Dell', complete with frogs and mirror balls, and there's a sheltered South facing terrace with tables and chairs, perfect for al fresco dining in the summer.
The House is tucked away a few minutes walk from the most happening place in the West Country. Bristol has a thriving music scene, great shops, galleries and restaurants and gorgeous architecture and the house is located in the heart of Bristol's buzzy Montpelier area, the old merchants' quarter. For foodies there's the award-winning Bell's Dinner, the cheap and cheerful multi award winning Thali Café, Bristol's favourite bakery Herbert's, veggie and vegan Cafe Kino and The Mela, a fantastic Indian takeaway all in a minute or twos walk. For nightlife there's the Croft, Hamilton House and Lakota, all on nearby hippedy hip Stokes Croft. There's a lovely vintage boutique a hand bag's throw away and a ten minute stroll will take you to Bristol's Gloucester Road with its many independent shops and cafes or down to the high-end Cabolt Circus. In twenty minutes you can reach the Harbourside or the Clifton areas.
Bristol is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful West Country, and Bath is half an hour drive away as is the seaside. An hour's drive will drive you to Glastonbury, the Cotswolds and Wales, and a couple of hours will get you to Stratford, Devon, Oxford and London.
The train from Temple Meads takes less than 10 minutes to get to Bath; stay on it and you will be in London in another hour and a half.
Whatever your plans I know my town and would love to help you organise your trip.

This house is one of a kind and was built in 1830. Little of its early history and purpose is known but it was rumoured to be used to manage the orchard. It does have the feel of a farmhouse and is practical for its period being on two floors and not 4.

Bristol is famous for its arcitecture and culture. It is a generous easy going city that is a joy to amble around and easy to get to and from. We have it all here: a thriving independant music scene and the fabulous Colston Hall
( a ten minute walk away); great art galleries and a wealth of ground breaking artists ( and other people's wall painting artists!); and lots of culture ( historically bloody) for the vultures. We have circus ( the infamous invisible circus's residency at the old fire station is just down the road); and world famous theatre ( Bristol Old Vic is an easy 20 minute stroll); burlesque and Banksies. There is a festival for each weekend of the summer season and always something to discover around every corner in this neck of the woods. This area is the hip area of Bristol and if its happening in Bristol then you wont have to go far.
