The SpaceInteresting attic room in characterful recently refurbished spacious two storey Victorian end of terrace house with garden in quiet, safe area. Comfortable double bed. One large shared bathroom used by guests only (with separate toilet) on floor below, and, for occasional use by guests, another shower room and toilet on ground floor. I moved here five years ago and did lots to upgrade without losing the original charm. Free Wifi available. Linen and towels provided. Choice of 6 bus links to centre with all Bristol's many attractions about 15-20 minutes away, really lovely park with lake and skateboarding centre close by. Nature reserve within short walking distance, as is access to a river walk. Basic shops,(e.g. 2 supermarkets, a deli, fruit and veg shop) a post office, cafes and restaurants within 10 mins walk.The beautiful and equally historic city of Bath is 55 mins by nearby bus (20 mins by car) through lovely countryside. Kingswood is 10 minutes away by bus, 20 if you walk. Getting to the centre or to Bristol University is straight forward but getting to any of the UWE campus by public transport involves 2 buses and would take about 1 hour.Much less if you have a car, or are prepared to cycle, either of which option reduces journey time by at least half. Guest AccessGuests have access to upstairs bathroom, sitting room, dining room, study and their bedroom. There is generally NO access to the kitchen.I take care of any cooking, cleaning and laundry, but guests may use the microwave. Interaction with GuestsThis is my home. I live here, with two permanent lodgers, both young guys, one a student, one a recent graduate. I like to get up early but don't mind if you don't. I am happy to cook for you and do your laundry. Happy also to suggest places of interest. There is a pleasant garden. The NeighborhoodThis is a quiet family oriented area, and Jubilee Road is one of the pleasantest streets, with easy access to Trooper's Hill nature reserveand the River Avon in one direction and St George's Park, which has a big skate park as well being a lovely park, in the other.The main road is Church Road, coming up fast,with cafes, many (mostly old fashioned) pubs and a growing number of independent shops. But admittedly it has a way to go. There are three supermarkets within easy reach (Tesco, Aldi and Co-operative), and a very good deli (Southville deli), fish and chip shops and various fast food outlets, take aways (Chicken Cottage, Miss Millie's Chicken, at least 2 Indian restaurant/takeaways, pizza etc),a branch of Grounded which is a small local chain of gastro cafes (recommended for unfussy but tasty food). There is also The Lock Up which is equally good and reasonably priced.Plus the usual hairdressers, barbers and general stores, quite a few of which have an Eastern European slant (Polish, Latvian, Romanian. etc) Getting AroundVery well placed for public transport; there is a choice of 5 buses into the centre, including a direct connection to Bath in the other direction. Roadside parking available. There is an airport bus for £7 (single, £11 return) every 10 minutes from the airport to the bus and coach station in the centre, which is about 15-20 minutes away from St George, by another bus.Taxi from the centre, the main bus station, and the main train station at Temple Meads is about £7-8 for each. Taxi from the airport is about £25, unless you can book in advance which reduces the cost by about £10, but it does depend on how much luggage you have..or uber is available.
Garage available as well as roadside parking. Other Things to NoteCouples are welcome for short term stays, but I prefer singles for anything longer than a long weekend. Guests do not have access to the kitchen, but I can do evening meals on request for a small fee, depending on how many people are staying, and how much airbnb has charged you - I have two permanent lodgers so I'm cooking anyway.There are lots of lovely restaurants in Bristol to try as well - there is a really good Thai restaurant within walking distance, and a Weatherspoons (a pub chain that sells pretty basic food), as well as various take aways (Indian, vegetarian, Italian, burgers, fish and chips).
