The Guest House

If you love the idea of something a little bit out of the ordinary, then we may just be the place for you:

Our independent guesthouse on the East side of Bristol has grown from a love of people and a fundamental belief in the good of humanity. We have crafted a place that is designed to delight and soothe in equal measure and have you leaving feeling rejuvenated. Quirky, intriguing, peaceful and calm, the house has a magic too it, vintage retro collections and artworks, crisp white, heaven like rooms with roll top baths for star gazing. Wonderful banquet breakfasts and croissants baking whilst you take a morning dip in the cedar hot tub! We are right by the Bristol to Bath cycle path so bring your bike and see Bristol from a different perspective, leave your car and the hassle of city parking and jump on a bus, a brilliant way to see the many little villages that make up Bristol. This is our amazing city which we love, Sadie your host is a passionate Bristolian and can direct you to some great hangouts. So take a gamble with Fishponds, The East side is really the coolest quarter.
