Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Bristol, England
This self catering cottage is 3 miles from the centre of Bristol with a
direct bus link every 10 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. The accommodation provides excellent comfort, and all modern facilities. There is a piano for guests to play, a picnic table in the garden for fine weather plus outdoor table tennis and games of all sorts.

Bristol has so much to offer and a weeks visit would not do justice to all there is to see and do. It is also a great centre for visits to the west country, and to Wales and the Cotswolds, and the city of Bath is within easy reach.

For us with family nearby, the location was excellent. Westbury on Trym is a village in its own right with lots of local facilities and easy links into Bristol itself. At the end of a quiet road, the Barn is very quiet - only the babbling of the Trym burn and the church bells can be heard. The accommodation provides...

We stayed at the barn with our two young boys while visiting for a friend's wedding. The barn is beautiful, exactly as shown in the pictures. Jane gave us a lovely welcome and was most helpful with local knowledge of parks for children. Both Jne and Richard were also on hand to answer questions when needed. The backyard is an...
