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. Another option would be to fly into Bristol directly via Bristol Airport, which is eight miles from the city and also a good travel option for stays in Somerset holiday homes generally.

In a great position with a lovely pub about a 5 minute walk away, and cheddar gorge around 25 minutes away. Plenty of walks starting in the village too. Judith, the owner, was probably the best host I've stayed with, very polite and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and anyone else reading this post.

The outlook is beautiful, the local pub very friendly and while being close enough to fall in, or out of, we never heard a peep from them. Lots of places to eat a few minutes away, lovely walks and plenty to do while feeling you are away from it all. As for the decor, the exposed beams and stonework is charming while all mod cons bring the apartment into the 21st century. We only stayed for a few days but returned feeling we had been away for weeks, All in all loved it. Thank you Dave and Terri.
