About Angela and Lance
We, my husband Lance, myself Angela and our adult daughter Sophia use this lovely apartment as a second home as we live in the countryside but thoroughly enjoy all that the city and harbourside has to offer as well. Lance works as an IT Consultant and Angela is a retired Social Worker. We are also part owners in our local village pub which the community rescued from closure or development -although Angela does not drink! Angela enjoys playing the flute, being a Parish Councillor and a member of the local chapel. Lance enjoys playing tennis, watching sport and listening to music - as well as being a frequent attender at Glastonbury festival. We are in our mid fifties. We were recently made grandparents to two gorgeous baby boys. We have three children, boy/girl twins of 23yrs and a son of almost 28yrs. Angela is Bristol born and bred but Lance is originally from Oxford. We met when we were 19yrs old in London and at University.
Angela and Lance purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Angela and Lance chose Canon's Marsh
When Angela saw the plans for this development she was determined that we would buy this apartment. It's position on the harbourside is almost unique, especially for a 1 bedroomed apartment and it also had a rare parking space. The apartment feels more like a little house as it has its own front door, back door, a rear courtyard area as well as a balcony. The living area is also unusually spacious for a new build 1 bedroomed apartment. Further, there are only ten dwellings in this building and so we have a close knit Residents Association.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love the activities on and around the harbourside. The lovely views of the water and boats and the numerous opportunities for excursions and eating out. It is also only a short stroll to reach the public open space of Brandon Hill, the shops and university of Clifton and the many historic buildings Bristol has to offer. The city is home to Banksy and there are many art, music and cultural exhibitions and events throughout the year.

Perfect apartment for exploring Bristol.
Easy parking and access to a well positioned dockside well equipped and clean apartment. Lovely views, weather helped! Plenty to watch and places to eat.
We were exceptionally happy with the Boat House!
This was a perfect place for the two of us to relax, sit on the tiny wind-protected patio, and enjoy the waterway view. The flat was very comfortable and well-appointed. We didn't use the kitchen for more than cups of tea... the coffee shop and Spoke and Stringer restaurant below provided great food and coffee just steps away. We were able to access the town of Bristol by foot, ferry and Uber very easily. It as all better than we had imagined!
