Large family house with fantastic outdoor space, lots do do both at home and close by but parties are not allowed. Perched on a cliff overlooking the river with access to own pool, play areas, private woods and minutes from the open spaces of the downs. A ten minute drive to the town centre, ten minutes to WildSpace, 30 minutes from the airport and just over half an hour from the closest beach or 45 minutes to Wales.

The space
Fantastic five bedroom modern home in premier Bristol location available to rent for a minimum of a week. PARTIES ARE NOT ALLOWED, THIS IS NOT SUITABLE FOR GROUPS OF FRIENDS - its perfect for cross generational families.

The house is furnished with a mixture of modern furniture and vintage chairs, lights, dinning table, sideboards and desks from the 50s and 60s - so some of the vintage chairs are collectors pieces but a little worn. The sleeping accommodation consists of a large master bedroom with en suite bathroom with a bath and a shower and three further double bedrooms - one with en suite and two sharing the family bathroom and one single room with an en suite and space for a pull out bed. All towels and linen supplied, including those for the pool.

On the ground floor there is an open plan kitchen dining area leading to a living room and home office. Next to this is a fully functional utility and cloak room area and WC. Wrapping round the entire back of the house is a jaw dropping cliff top veranda with stunning views South over the Avon Gorge and Leigh Woods, and West to the estuary and the Brecon Beacons. There are comfy sofa and chairs to flop on with tables and a fire basket. There are blankets to use on cooler nights as you sit and star gaze. All the doors to the terrace open so you can bring the outside in and we have just changed the wooden ballustrades in the photos for glass so the view is even better. The indoor dining table seats 8 (pull over 2 extra chairs from the office) and we often use the kitchen bar (which seats 4) to spill onto, but at Christmas, we tend to bring in the outdoor tables to create a larger eating space inside and you are welcome to do the same.

The house boasts a gym equipped with powerplate, running machine, weights and boxing bag. There is a heated outdoor swimming pool (open summer months only) and hot tub (available all year round) and there are 8 pool towels supplied. A decked area with 4 sun loungers and 4 chairs. There is a large BBQ and tables and benches for 10 to eat outside.

The decked area looks the gardens which lead down the cliff to a treehouse and private woodlands. The treehouse has a mini pool table and table football but there are a lot of steps to get there! The steps take you through orchards and you are welcome to pick the apples and pears if the are out while you are here. Swings hang beneath the treehouse and you'll see tyres hanging from trees to swing on, its a great place to make a camp or have a bonfire and you will see remnants of both. Its perfect for adventurous older kids but not for younger ones - but there are gates that shut it off. This lower woodland area is pretty wild and there are deer, badgers, foxes etc so if you head down to the bottom, we suggest wearing wellies as with any deer, there is the chance of a tick (I leave a tick pick out just in case). If you go to the Bristol Museum map room, you will see that there was a 17th century pub at the bottom of the garden reached by a lane - you can see the remains of the track. Then, during the First and Second World Wars, the large house which sat where Ridgewood flats are now, was used as a hospital for wounded Australian soldiers. In between times, over the centuries, the area was used as a nursery garden with rows and rows of greenhouses. You are likely to find old bits of ceramic water bottles, chimneys, or glass from the greenhouses which emerge after storms or animal digs (another reason for wearing wellies at the very bottom). In the past, people have even found old coins.

The area closer to the house is more looked after and has a grassy "lawn" with a trampoline and a basket ball shooting area. You will find cricket sets, croquet and badminton in the gym for you to use, along with kites, skates and skateboards (just put them back afterwards please)

There is free wifi Internet access and cable TV with Netflix etc in the sitting room and master bedroom and TVs in three of the other bedrooms as well as the kitchen and gym.

Huntersdale is in the Sneyd Park area of Bristol minutes from the huge flat grassy area called 'the downs' - a popular jogging spot. Sneyd Park is a suburb lying on the western fringe of Clifton Down, adjacent to the Avon Gorge and the Sea Walls observation point. The number 40 bus stops five minutes walk away and goes into town. There is also parking for two cars at the house and plenty of room on the street for more.

There is a 2 bedroom self contained flat in the basement with its own access. When we are living in the house, during term time, we rent the flat out but we never rent it at the same time as the house - if you rent the main house, you will have exclusive use of all facilities. On occasion, we may stay over in the flat but you will not notice us and you will have complete privacy.

Where you’ll be

Bristol, United Kingdom

The views are spectacular - one way, we see the river and woodlands and the other way, we see the distant cranes at Avonmouth with the estuary and the Brecon Beacons in Wales beyond them. It feels as though we are in the country and yet we are just a ten minute drive into town. The Portway lies below us - so you can hear the hum of traffic, especially with the windows open but and the birds and wildlife too - we love that mix.
