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.

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...More
