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.
