A typical Victorian terraced house, but inside is a surprise. Sadie’s an artist, and clever magpie; her home teems with friendly quirkiness: vintage pieces galore, art, fairy lights, polished pine floors; join her for tea, cake and chat in the kitchen. Everyone sleeps well here. Bedrooms (up two flights of stairs) are calm, white retreats with pretty linen on antique beds, hot water bottles, trays with nice things in jars; nifty white bathrooms too – you can star-gaze from one of the roll-tops. Breakfast includes pastries, nutty porridge, cheese, pancetta. Bath cycle path, river walk, cafes… all nearby; 25-minute bus ride to town.

An enchanting place in Bristol. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed an extra night. Sadie was very hospitable, interesting and extremely helpful. We really got on well with her and she made our stay very meaningful. The house is beautiful and has got real character. Thank you.

Lovely stay. Very friendly hostess. Room was beautifully presented with all facilities working well. Even a piece of cake was provided to go with my cup of tea! En-suite bathroom and very comfortable bed. Would highly recommend.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Sadie Spikes

  • Wake up feeling refreshed from a delicious nights sleep in our 'magically recharging rooms', to the smell of croissants baking downstairs. Either come downstairs to the warm and inviting kitchen for breakfast or have it up in your room as a special treat.
  • Bring your bikes and jump on the amazing old railway cycle path that can take you into the city or all the way to Bath if your feeling fit! A Brilliant way to to see the city from a different perspective. Bristol is a great place to explore the west from.
  • Fishponds is on the East side and is a gem! quiet and peaceful at night but with great cafes and pubs to choose from if you just want to people watch! go for an amazing walk in Oldbury court along the river Frome and feel as if you are in the country.
  • Leave your car here and jump on a bus to the centre, see the old town and Harbourside, amazing places to eat and stuff to see. Go on the street art tour, eat a pie at Pieminster in Stokes Croft or swig some local brewed craft beer on a boat or in a pub!
  • Explore the vibrancy and diversity of our City, each area like small villages have definite characters, wonderfully unique and friendly, from the beautiful architecture of affluent Clifton and the Suspension bridge to Stokes Croft and the Bohemian quarter.
  • We love our City and as a passionate Bristolian we really rave about it. Vibrant, full of life, spice, space, creativity and character. A Brilliant place to relax, explore and get inspired, any info you need just ask we are always happy to help you.
