Colourful window box, leafy front garden… Jo’s terraced Victorian house has an open-door friendliness – chat to her when you arrive over tea and a homemade something.
Sleep well in first or top-floor rooms; eat well too, round the sociable kitchen table: proper bread, fresh fruit and yogurt, muesli, good coffee.
Borrow maps and explore the city. See a film at Orpheus cinema at the bottom of the road; book a show at the Old Vic or Tobacco Factory; have a day on the harbourside. Stroll out for dinner at nearby Westbury Park pub, Italian Prego or Mesa Tapas; Chandos Road and Whiteladies have lots of good places to eat too. Jo gives you a key, so come and go – return to read in the guest sitting room or out in the suntrap garden under the wisteria.
