Make a holiday apartment in Bristol your home away from home

Dynamic Bristol is a popular holiday destination full of exciting possibilities. Situated on the River Avon, Bristol is a colourful city with numerous historic sites, places of cultural interest, and plenty of opportunities to explore the great outdoors. Within Bristol, visitors will have access to all the convenient amenities of a major city, including a wide range of restaurants, pubs, and shopping areas. For these reasons, Bristol attracts couples, families and groups alike in search of a well-rounded holiday. Somerset’s other great urban attraction, Bath, is within driving distance and holiday homes in Bath offer a nice alternative to Bristol.

HomeAway lists a number of great self catering apartments in Bristol. Rentals start at £315 and vary from cosy, historic accommodation to sleek, modern apartments. Several Bristol holiday apartments are located in the city centre, just a short walk away from Bristol Temple Meads rail station. Others are situated on the outskirts of the city, close to several outdoor attractions. All holidays rentals are fully furnished and some come with access to a swimming pool, tennis courts, and BBQ equipment.

Things to do

-Family attractions: The At-Bristol Science Centre will appeal to children of all ages. Conveniently located in the city centre, the science centre offers lots of interactive exhibits, a planetarium, and dozens of events through the year. There are 400 species of animals to see at the Bristol Zoo Gardens. The 12-acre zoo is famously home to a family of gorillas and has an area where visitors can feed parrots. Another great family-friendly attraction is Bristol Aquarium, which displays live exhibits representing underwater habitats from around the world.

-Golf: Holidaymakers staying in a Bristol apartment have a range of golf courses to choose from. The 18-hole parkland course at Bristol Golf Club is easy to reach and offers modest green fees along with great views of the Severn Estuary. Bristol & Clifton Golf Club has a well-regarded 18-hole course with an inviting 19th-century clubhouse. Tee times can be booked online for added convenience. The Kendleshire Golf Club offers a challenging course with water features and lots of different pay-and-play packages for visitors.

-Historic sites: The Clifton Suspension Bridge is among the most recognisable features of Bristol. Spanning the picturesque Avon Gorge, the bridge is 150 years old and boasts a great visitors' centre that offers free tours on weekends. Holidaymakers can drive, cycle, or walk across the bridge at their leisure. For those interested in maritime history, the SS Great Britain is an excellent place to visit. When it was constructed in the mid-19th century, it was the fastest and largest ship in the world. Today it provides a fascinating look into seafaring life from the 1840s to the 1930s.

-Culture: The Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery is the city’s must-see cultural attraction. The city also plays host to a number of major cultural events and festivals throughout the year. Popular festivals include the Bristol Improve Festival held in March annually, Bristol Fashion Week, and the Love Food Spring Festival.

Travel to Bristol

Bristol is easy to reach from all parts of the UK. Drivers can take the M4 or M5 straight into the city. Visitors without a car can take a train into Bristol. From London Paddington, the journey to Bristol Temple Meads, near several Bristol holiday apartments, is less than two hours.

I planned a weekend away as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday. This is my first experience of HomeAway (or anything similar) and I have been very impressed. This property stood out on the website - great reviews of the location and the caring hosts. Any questions I had were helpfully answered within a short space of time. As for the Studio itself, we want to come back when the weather is better and when my bf doesn't have a sore back (bad timing!)! The Studio was lovely - cosy, light and airy - perfect for a February weekend of mixed weather. We particularly loved the underfloor heating downstairs and the cosy electric fire upstairs! Arriving to a fresh loaf in the kitchen, with jam, butter and milk in the fridge was wonderful. Thank you also for the decaf coffee option! The Studio is on two levels with a bed and sitting area with TV on the top level, and an open-plan kitchen area with shower room and toilet on the lower level. It is just a short walk down the garden steps from here to the Kennet & Avon Canal over the River Avon - a fantastic location! The scenery is stunning, from the Dundas Aqueduct to the beautiful Bath stone and colourful layers of trees, the birdsong and the tranquility of the waterside. The adjacent railtrack was interesting too and not at all off-putting sound-wise. We only saw a little of the area but would love to come back and explore more and use the bicycles on offer too. Even with my bf's back playing up, we managed a 4-mile walk along the canal to Bathampton where we enjoyed lunch at the canal-side pub, The George, before getting the bus back up (the bus stop is just a short distance from the property). We also walked the 15-20 minutes to the Wheelwrights Arms for dinner on the Saturday evening - lovely food and friendly staff - loved the addition of the candle on my bf's dessert! :) Thank you Barry & Brenda for sharing your property and making our stay so lovely - hopefully we'll visit again soon in the not too distant future! x

The rest of our group was made up of 10 adults and the house was perfect for a group of this size, specially in the evening when you could relax in front of the fire (remember to buy logs in advance from the owners). Within walking distance there is also a lovely pub that was family friendly and did great food. A lovely stay in the countryside. Would strongly recommend!
