Hillside Stables is a separate annexed building, to the main house, a hidden period gem with spectacular gardens. This Grade II listed home and family house, dates back to 1715 with some extensions c.1820. The owners have recently renovated the old stables to build a mezzanine king-sized bed deck and shower room in this completely separate private annex with its own entrance.

The space
The Stables overlook the large and established formal gardens in circa 0.402 of an acre, as well as a beautiful yew tree believed to be c.500-600 years old, among others.

The Old Stables is a modern renovation of the home's stables that are believed to pre-war time, have hosted groomsmen and their horses, when they visited the neighbouring local hostelery, the Post Office Tavern. Post war it was known to locals as the Gardener's Cottage.

You will be welcome to use the orchard garden, which captures the afternoon and evening sun. It can only be used until 7pm and only by our guests at the Stables. We have lovely neighbours in the nearby cottages and it's important to us to keep noise to an absolute minimum in this tranquil area.

You may also be offered a space in a gated off street car parking area on request and if available. Hillside is by a main road, though high walls in situ, so additional parking outside the building should also be possible provided it is secured at less busy commuting times.

A sofa bed, children’s fold out bed or cotbed may also be available for a short period of time, if desired, subject to discussion over availability, costs etc. A basket of childrens toys and books can also be provided on request, as can baby/ toddler items if we have them.

The old Stables is by a main road and is only a few minutes’ walk downhill to the endearing small village of Westbury on Trym, with its shops, takeaways, restaurants and pubs catering for all tastes.

Westbury Hill is also on the cusp of Durdham Downs, Badocks Woods and Blaise Estate with plenty of space to run or explore.

The Old Stables is a completely annexed building from the main house, enabling private use for our listed guests, should you wish to self-isolate or just have your own space while staying away from home.
