This self catering cottage which is

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 Bristol region

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.
