Our 2 bedroom house is a comfortable home from home with a lovely garden. LA is a small suburb of Bristol with Ashton Court Estate on the doorstep & 2 great pubs, takeaways & food stores in the village & 10 minutes from the Centre of Bristol, Harbourside and so much more.
Suit 2 couples ideally, or maybe a couple with a baby/teenager - there is a travel cot and high chair available.
Note that there is a large pond in the garden not very safe for children.
An ideal base for visiting the city of Bristol and surrounding area. Great for those interested in events at Ashton Court Estate such as the Balloon Fiesta.
For those of you who like a good walk it is about 50 minutes to Clifton village via Ashton Ct it takes you through parkland & across the Suspension Bridge with stunning views over the Avon Gorge, one of our favourites - stopping off for a coffee/drink or lunch in Clifton and walking home. Clifton by car takes 10 minutes, note that parking can be tricky & is pay at meter.
We are very close to all the amenities and bustle of Bristol Centre with regular festivals and events around the historic Harbourside where the SS Great Britain can be explored.
In contrast we live in a quiet road situated in a semi rural location with walks/ pubs and shops all within the village of Long Ashton, the best of both worlds.
Ashton Court Estate and Mansion is located a short walk away. Hosting national and international events - The Balloon Fiesta, Kite festival, biking events and open air theatre. Set in acres of beautiful parkland and woods with dedicated mountain bike trails. Bike hire is available within the Ashton Court itself.
We are well placed for exploring further afield with Clevedon, Portishead and Weston-Super-Mare, all easily accessable, ideal for a day out.
You are welcome to use the house and garden as your own and have access to all areas of the house. With a couple of exceptions being the smallest bedroom we use for storage during your stay & the garage our general junk area.
It is our home and available when we are away. We would like you to enjoy the house as we do and have a relaxing break - all we ask respectively in return is that you leave it as you find it and read the house rules before booking.
We have a large pond in the garden so feel that it would not be suitable for children, as the pond is not visible from the house. Not a very relaxing holiday if you have little ones !
However the front garden has a lawn and slide and can be shut off from the back garden. We leave it to you to discuss at time of booking.
In summer months if the weather is nice please feel free to relax in the garden there are plenty of seating areas - there is a large patio that is ideal for a get together if you are meeting friends or family. BBQ on patio.
We have an inter-grated garage, accessible through the kitchen - where you will find a washing machine which you are welcome to use; the rest of the garage is our general junk - storage area & is off limits
When parking on the drive please respect our neighbour opposite as she will need to back out of her garage regularly. If you have visitors and it is congested on the drive they may need to park up on the road.
After all the 'dos and donts' the main thing is that you enjoy yourselves.
