Where to reside near Bristol Harbour Festival
Take a look at 5 of the very best holiday homes in our Bristol collection. If these don’t meet your high expectations, then nothing will.
Click to book Cowslip Fields now: from £439 per night Unfettered access to idyllic Somerset countryside is guaranteed from this modern four-bedroom barn conversion near Thornbury. From your doorstep, you can explore the sweet chestnut orchards, farmland and meadows of the private 30-acre estate in which the home resides, and enjoy views towards the Seven Estuary in the distance. This location is completely private, and families and groups of friends can secret themselves away in this idyllic and very peaceful setting. Children will love having so much space to roam – we imagine endless games of hide and seek, nature walks and woodland den-building as the parents sip cool beers or enjoy relaxed meals outdoors. The barn itself is flooded with light and feels huge – some bedrooms have a double and a single bed inside (ideal for one family or three children), and we love the ratio of five bathrooms to four bedrooms. The estate borders the 66-acre family-friendly Old Down Country Park where further rambles and picnics can be enjoyed. Located close to the M5 and the M4, the home is convenient to reach, and also offers easy access to Bristol (30 minutes’ drive) and Weston-Super-Mare’s beaches (40 minutes’ drive). Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms
Click to book Damask Rose now: from £1151 per night This stunning historic home captures the beauty and rustic charm of an estate dating back hundreds of years. From the ornate wooden furnishing to the impressionist artwork on the walls, this Grade II listed house sparks delight and curiosity. With comfortable sitting rooms, a library, and a cosy TV room, there is plenty of space for family and friends to relax. It’s the kind of house that sets imaginations buzzing. Just imagine the stories it could tell. Children in particular will love exploring – especially the rooms in the attic. The estate is surrounded by a lovely garden for you to enjoy. There are restaurants and pubs within easy walking distance, and you can even gather up the troops and stride out for a day at Portishead Beach. Sleeps up to 10 | 5 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms
Click to book The Brunel now: from £699 per night Set on one of the most delightful Georgian squares in Bristol (and that’s saying something), this elegant period townhouse is a dream come true. The location is unbeatable – it's sandwiched between leafy Berkeley Square and Brandon Hill Park, which offers fabulous views of the city and is a great place for a picnic as the sun starts to set. From this spot, you can walk to all the best restaurants and attractions in Bristol, including Clifton Village – home to independent shops, cosy pubs and gorgeous terraced houses – as well as the city centre. With its ample rooms, grand ceilings and antique-style furniture, the interior radiates traditional character. Keen cooks can flex their culinary muscles in the charming kitchen, or better yet, you can arrange a catered feast with the on-site hosts, one of whom is a trained chef. There are seven cosy bedrooms to choose from (some even offer glimpses of Cabot Tower), while a comfortable living/dining room is perfect for when you want a relaxed evening in. Sleeps up to 14 | 7 Bedrooms | 9 Bathrooms
Click to book Big Blue now: from £1344 per night Walking into this mansion is like the beginning of a magical children’s story. There are hanging basket chairs filled with fake furs to snuggle in; freestanding baths surrounded by hand-painted clouds; beds with curtains; porthole windows; doors that lead straight out onto a sandy beach. You half expect to be able to walk into Narnia through one of the antique cupboards. Its location is magical too: right on Portishead Beach, it’s the flat sand and shallows that family holidays are made for. When you're done with your daily sandcastles, walk along the beach to the lighthouse or take in the landmark views of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, or for more life and soul Bristol is only minutes' drive away. Apart from sightseeing and playing, it’s possible not to lift a finger while you’re here. Hosts can arrange for private chefs, maid service, babysitting, you name it. All the ingredients for a truly magical trip. Sleeps up to 12 | 6 Bedrooms | 7 Bathrooms
Click to book Evening Primrose now: from £800 per night Escape the city in style at this idyllic estate surrounded by the rolling green landscape of the Gloucestershire countryside. Stay in a Grade-II listed home rich with history, featuring Georgian stone walls, fireplaces, big beautiful windows, and unbelievable grounds. Entertain yourself and your guests in the music and library rooms - a refreshing break from the TV. Elegant bedrooms, beautiful bedframes, and freestanding bathtubs will ensure a restful and indulgent country retreat. The home's grounds share the same beauty as the Grade-II listed Dyrham Park - a National Trust site a walk or 5-minute drive away. Historic cities Bristol and Bath are both very close if you want day trips spent shopping, eating and drinking, and evenings filled with dreamy country living. Sleeps up to 11 | 6 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
